Imagine for one second if you will, President Obama with an economy booming as ours is right now. The media would be in a state of frenzy falling all over themselves to praise the glorious president as one of the finest ever.
But this is 2019, and the utterly left-biased media sits on its hands. President Trump gets little credit he so greatly deserves for the booming economy. The Democrats and their media allies dare to even suggest the low unemployment and high GDP are mainly due to Obama who never got above three percent GDP in eight long years as president.
Imagine if Hillary Clinton had won as the third term of Barack Obama? Does anyone sane think she would have been able to achieve even half of what this president has done? She would have used something very close to Obama’s economic formula.
But there you have Barnum and Bailey imitator and presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) on CNN Sunday saying, “I love Trump is taking credit for a recovery that started under Obama.” That was with a straight face.
Someone needs to assist Booker with his reading material. The recently published April jobs report showed that the American economy added 263,000 jobs last month while the unemployment rate fell to 3.6 percent, the lowest since 1969. Booker missed that report under his pile of comic books.
Oh, we know Cory envies the president, who he claims is a two-headed monster. But Trump’s polling numbers, which are vastly improving, will win over even the most dubious voters with this robust and seemingly unstoppable economy. Trump may not be what you would consider your favorite neighbor, but he is getting the country moving.
As then-candidate Ronald Reagan said to incumbent Jimmy Carter in the 1980 presidential debates (sort of), “Are you better off now than you were for eight years under Jimmy, aka Barack Obama?”
If you are sincere, it’s a resounding, “Hell yes!”
Millions of the middle class and low-income earners feel a lot better than where they were at in 2018. They may not like the president personally, but they can probably stand four more years if that means four more years of economic growth.
Voters in force will look the other way on Trump’s supposed negative aspects. Measured against policies a Democrat would implement in the White House will scare them into submission. How do you sell the “Basket of Deplorables“ socialist message while enjoying increased wages, increased consumer confidence and a relatively peaceful world?
