Trump claims credit for what is
still mostly Obama´s economy

Associated Press, by Christopher Rugaber

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/17/2018 5:34:42 PM

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

LOL, oh come on Rugburner. Even a willfully stupid democrat must remember all those times when reports were ´unexpectedly low´ and the published numbers were walked back, except for unemployment numbers which were so bad YOU guys started counting part time jobs as full time jobs. NOW under PRESIDENT Trump it is exactly reversed and the numbers come in and have to be adjusted up. Also be serious for a second and admit NO company was handing out $1,000 per worker bonuses under the Fraud. Not even Federal Government for life workers which zoomed under democrats and padded the employment numbers. You sir, are a liar, but enjoy eating crow along with those analysts you cite, for the next SEVEN years. Imagine how long that will be for you and AssPress.

They believe the fantasy that BO did the right things for the economy. They cannot afford to think otherwise.

It´s just serendipity that the economy roared ahead at 3%+ GDP growth as Trump took over, that consumer confidence took off, that unemployment for Blacks and Hispanic cratored, that optimism in the stock market is the highest in 30 years, that companies are offering bonuses and wage hikes, and other positive signs.

It must be racism that NONE of these things happened under BO. However, we were assured they no longer COULD happen, that the BO economy was the best we could expect, the "new normal". The media all bobbled their heads.

Just more fake media mash.

Quoting Mark Zandi is as bad as quoting Paul Krugman. Going from a president who believed in stifling capital formation to one that encourages it is what accounts for the current economic situation. The private sector has had some of the shackles removed.

So, if the economy was doing so well under Obama, why was Hillary talking about how horrible the economy was, and how she needed to give it a boost?

How come Bernie was complaining about how horrible the economy was too?

Obama´s economy, such as it was, was a sinking ship. Trump´s economy is well afloat, and while it may still suffer from the wormholes and rotten wood of the Obama tenure, the boards are being replaced by seasoned sound planks, fresh caulking, and a reasoned approach to salvage.

The difference between an abandoned wreck and an abused but renovated hull.

Re #22: AAPL said that, after Trump had signed the corporate tax cuts (35% to 21%, finally making America´s corporate taxes competitive with other nations´), they were going to put $350 billion back in to the economy of the USA. Bravo, President Trump! Apple will be far from the last corporation that reinvests in America. Again, bravo to PDJT. The Democrats should consider moving to Venezuela, the purest expression of their political ideology.

The components of this nation´s economic engine were always present. The obama era of anti-business and anti-America placed every obstacle possible to encumber and inhibit both the economy and the national morale. Why? It was a deliberate plan to reduce US influence and power in world affairs. Where did all that money spent by obama and his fellow travelers go? It certainly didn´t do what it was said to do. The real intent was to place a financial ball and chain on the people of our nation and the nation´s ability to compete effectively in the world economy. Those shackles are being removed and the nation and it´s economy are responding in a world shaking manner. The fraud had nothing to do with it.

Does the Associated Press believe that President Trump has carried on the same policies of business regulation that Obama favored and instituted? Have they not noticed how he has issued executive orders rescinding actions of the Obama administration and begun the process of reducing the size and scope of federal agencies?

In this area alone, President Trump has been far different than Obama, and it´s been a yuuuge benefit to the economy.

After sixteen months of investigations and over a year-and-a-half of the FBI and Obama administration spying on Donald Trump, his family, his business, his campaign, his transition team and his administration — Special Counsel Robert Mueller dropped an absolute nothing-burger today in announcing charges against Russian operatives who sullied the US election process. The Mueller Special Counsel has yet to look at Saudi donations to Hillary Clinton or Clinton campaign collusion with Russia.

The problem of mass violence in the U.S. is more a reflection of contempt for the sanctity of human life than of a love for gun ownership. In a society that reveres human life, gun ownership isn´t a chronic problem. People who genuinely believe in the sanctity of human life won´t take another life - by gun or any other means - unless it is absolutely necessary.Not so in a society that views human life as subjective and revocable. In a society that condones, funds, and promotes abortion and excuses euthanasia, human life is cheap. When a woman has a

North Dakota Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer announced Friday plans to run for Senate against Democratic incumbent Heidi Heitkamp.The decision is sure to come as a relief to Washington Republicans who had been pressuring him to reconsider his decision last month to stay put in the House.With Democrats fighting hard to seize control of the House this fall, Republicans are determined to hold onto their narrow majority in the Senate, now at 51-49. Heitkamp, a Democrat in a deep-red state that went overwhelmingly for President Trump in 2016, is thought to be one of the most-vulnerable senators this cycle. But until

At the direction of Bill de Blasio’s administration, New York City public school principals have begun filling vacancies with teachers languishing on the city’s Absent Teacher Reserve. Everyone knows that this decision is lousy for city kids, especially those most in need of top instructors. In hindsight, though, it was also inevitable: the rules that govern public schools are designed to look out for the interests of adults, not children.The ATR is an example of what happens when commonsense reforms run up against an inflexible system. Former mayor Michael Bloomberg gave principals power to hire the teachers they thought best,

RNC Chair: Indictment Shows Obama

The indictment of 13 Russians and three Russian companies for allegedly interfering in the 2016 presidential election shows that former President Obama´s administration "lost sight of Russia," according to Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. Moscow targeted the U.S. presidential election with "information warfare" intended to sow discord among Americans, according to the indictment announced Friday by the Justice Department.McDaniel noted that Obama famously mocked Mitt Romney during a 2012 presidential debate on foreign policy after Romney said Russia is the greatest geopolitical threat to the U.S. "Obama took his eye off the ball.
