Despite what pundits and the media said, life has not gotten better for most Americans since Obama took office.
In almost every way, things have gotten worse. Obama claims that unemployment has gone down under his administration, yet ignores the millions of people who dropped out of the job market because of vanishing opportunities.
He claims more people have health care coverage, ignoring the fact that Obamacare has caused health care prices to skyrocket.
And perhaps worst of all, race relations are at their lowest in decades. Not since the Civil Rights movement have we seen such clashing of black and white Americans. You’d think the first black President would have made it his goal to bring us together. Instead, his irresponsible rhetoric has lead to more crime, fighting, and division.
Yet that’s not what he’s saying.
From Right Wing News:
In an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopolous, Obama maintained that race relations have actually IMPROVED under his Presidency. No, I’m not kidding.
“I am absolutely convinced that race relations on the whole are actually better now than they were 20 years (ago),” Obama said, as ABC’s George Stephanopoulos interrupted him:
“Better now?” Stephanopoulos asked Obama in an interview taped on Friday for ABC’s “This Week.”…
Obama actually blamed the media for shining light on hate crimes and drawing attention to the incidences.
“And, well, it was horrific,” Obama agreed. “And that’s an example of something that — it’s not as if that’s the first time that a hate crime has taken place in this country. Hate crimes have been taking place for hundreds of years in this country, but it’s there on video. And the– the– the sort of seeing cruelty and callousness of that sort from young people is heartbreaking. And so naturally if you see a video like that you’re going to say to yourself, ‘My God, this is horrible,’ and — and rightfully so.
Race relations have only improved if you don’t look at the actual facts.
But the facts are clear: under Obama we’ve seen the formation of Black Lives Matter, one of the worst hate groups this country has ever seen. BLM has inspired countless Americans to start riots in major cities, turn black people against white people, and is directly responsible for the deaths of numerous police officers (not all of whom were white).
Not once has Obama come out to condemn Black Lives Matter’s irresponsible rhetoric or goals. In fact he is often seen encouraging and supporting them.
Sadly there won’t be much of a lasting legacy from the first black President. Only a broken heath care law and a hate group that verges on terrorism.
Perhaps, one day, we can do better.
