This russian hacking thing is ridiculous. Worse, the media just continues to be like totally biased. I read the other day this line "Trump quoted Julian Assange, whom many consider to be an enemy of America..."

So, the fellow journalist, who was all halos several years ago, is now a pariah because he won't LIE and say he got the info from the source they want it to be from. It's just ludicrous.

This Russia story is nothing but cover for Obama, the Dems and the media from admitting their failures.

Was it Russia that cancelled Hillary's trips to Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania? Was it Russia who framed Hillary for starting up her own personal email server? Was it Russia who lied about Benghazi and the aforementioned emails? Was it Russia who gave debate questions to Hillary Clinton in advance?

Obama is a tool and will go down as the worst president in American history.

Lol, this fool won't stop.

So he's taking a little heat for missing the UN vote about Israel which after giving Israel $38 Billion; I can write off those attacks as partisan stuff that doesn't matter too much to me, it'd be a big deal if he didn't give $38 billion to Israel and/or did this activity at the beginning of his 2 terms not the last month.

Obama vs. Trump : "Russian's hacked the election". " I would've beat Trump". The misleading title the MSM is trying to give the first one would make one of these a lie. Either the election was rigged and Trump would've beaten Obama as well or the election wasn't rigged and Obama would've beaten Trump. which is it Obama ?

Obama Sanctions Russia for hacks : WTF ? I'm glad Putin is not taking this too serious because it seems like Obama would rather start World War 3 instead of admit the Democrats are a frimbazeling mess in large part because of him. 1,030 seats lost during his time in the White House ! Republicans haven't had this much control of our government in ~100 years ? His "legacy" can be easily wiped away and it seems like he is pouting like a little took while a large majority of people that voted for his hope and change are hanging out in the wind. It can also be politics to try to tie Trump to being a Russian sympathizer but lol, its just so weak and unnecessarily dangerous.

It's a really good show, I'm watching it regularly now.
It's taking over my media time now because its so good, I use to watch Face The Nation every week but they didn't blast one of their regular contributions for being hilariously wrong on the Election and a little more research showed that contributor is a race-bater so I'm backing off it and watching him and Secular Talk very frequently but I like him more.

His vid about Obama bombing Somalia now is on point, and I was shocked I saw an AP story about it because its still way under the radar.

"your long term unemployment rate has dropped, it's now under 5%

i cant believe thats fact."

It is fact. The 'big' unemployment number is very low right now. The problem is with how that number is arrived at. From the unemployment pool, those who find a job are removed from the ranks of the unemployed and are not figured in that number. Unfortunately, if someone from the pool simply stops actively looking for a job, they too are removed from the ranks of the unemployed and are not figured in that big number. I haven't kept track recently, but most months, a lot more people stopped looking for a job then were actually hired. So I think the overall unemployment number of 5% is a bit deceiving.

For the real employment situation in this country to get better, you'll probably see the big unemployment number go up a bit first.

A number to really look at is the labor force participation rate. It is currently at historic lows.

He's horrible. Sounds great, talks pretty, seems to mean well then sells out the American people to corporations and special interest - dramatically expands the power of the presidency to include doing away with ha beaus corpus. Horrible. Lot's of economic growth over the last 25 years, most of it going to the very top. American workers work harder, for less money today than they did 15 years ago.

The home ownership rate is down, poverty is up, people on government welfare is up. Healthcare cost is up. National economic growth is down. Not to mention how we've screwed up the middle east by bombing seven countries - all for our own economic interest. Yeah, he's the worst. I'm just glad he's lazy because if he was really serious about getting stuff done we'd be even worse off.

Again speaking as a foreigner, most people I know around Europe (and having lived in 7 European countries and with friends in another 6 at least) consider Obama to be a good president, including with regards foreign affairs. I believe your trade deficit is the lowest it has been in ages, your long term unemployment rate has dropped, it's now under 5%, wages have increased if only a little (several years in a row in the uk I had no wage increase at all), there are a lot of positives.

Maybe it just depends on perspectives.

I believe Barack Obama is the worst president in American history. He is part of the reason that Donald Trump is president now.

I'll start with one positive: Osama Bin Laden. Difficult to say how much he personally had to do with it (see Bush 41 and Berlin Wall), but otherwise...Yay!

On the domestic front, the economy continues to teeter. The only reason it is where it is is due to artificially low interest rates. Obamacare has been a regulatory mess and has cost jobs. What has all that extra spending gotten us? Not much. Many have said that the deficit ballooning under Reagan was a terrible thing. Perhaps it was, but what did we get for it? A booming economy and the Soviet Union on the road to collapse. What have we gotten from the 9 trillion in additional deficit under Obama...nothing. It's sad when our president is more then willing to make deals with the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism, but when it comes to compromise with the GOP, he draws a real red line. Sad that he could have been a real uniter rather than a divider. Speaking of divisiveness, race relations in this country have gotten worse under Obama. I think much of that blame goes to the mainstream media, but when the president doesn't denounce a group who wants to kill cops(BLM), that's just wrong.

On the foreign front, things have gotten much worse. Terrorism is as strong as it's ever been. ISIS isn't the JV team that Obama hoped for. Libya was a disaster and the Iran deal was terrible. Instead of preventing Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, it guaranteed that they would. And that's assuming Iran (again, the world's leading state sponsor of terror) keeps their end of the bargain. But I'm sure that Iran is loving the billions of dollars we gave them.

A sad ending for a man riding a wave of 'Hope and Change'.

I've heard he's popular around the world. He's got fairly good approval ratings.

That's just my analysis. When you look at ISIS, and Putin, and Assad and China, he just seemed to want to ignore everything, and go back to the stadiums to give a speech. It turned him into a punching bag.

Interestingly from this side of the pond other than people like Farage, who is despicable and racist (his wife isn't British but she is white), most people think Obama has been one of the better Presidents in a while. I didn't like some of his policies, like drones for example, but generally he seemed to be doing his best for the country and the GOP were being obstructionist gits who wouldn't let stuff through so it became watered down and he never quite managed to do what he really wanted to do to help people in the country.

Interesting that most of the stuff people complain about (other than obamacare) seem to be security related and most easily passed by the Republicans...

You know, I was talking about this with a friend of mine here. Obama was a lot like Robert Barathion. He never cared to put any work into anything; just push the problems aside, live as much good times as he could and sort of bask in some measure of popularity. Unfortunately, that leaves a real mess for his successors. Let's just hope Trump isn't the King Joffrey, right?

You know, there was a movie about him and Michelle, like a romance, playing here. It seemed to show that she was the smart one, and he the happy go lucky one. I don't know that I could stomach a movie about the two of them, but it might give some insight into his personality.

I hope now that he's gone, historians start dipping a toe into who he was. No one ever really knew, he kept who he really was close to his chest all 8 years

Yeah, that was my feeling too. I mean, remember when he butted in the debt negotiations and we lost the AAA rating?

There were several instances like that.

I think the GDP is actually inflation adjusted. It's 2% real growth or so, but I'd have to check to verify. It is probably very very close to that.

Yes, it is better than the recession of course. But it's grown about 2% a year, which is pretty lackluster coming off such an ugly recession. I'd say, it's underperformed, but hey, it's always hard to say.

Another big problem I always had with Obama was that he never seemed to want to put in any effort. He just wanted to give a speech, and "challenge" others to solve the problem, rather than digging in and crafting a law. That really bothered me, he just seemed like the opposite of a leader, and someone in way over his head

I never cared for him personally either. He was always such a snob, and so full of himself.

Working in finance, Obama has helped grow my career. With the market going up the past 6 years, managing money for clients have helped me gain more clients and keep the ones I have. That has been my personal #1 issue.
