This weekend to a small crowd of about 750 to 900 people, Usurper Soetoro claimed that he is responsible for our economy! The ill-informed crowd cheered. They have forgotten that Barry said manufacturing jobs were not returning. Today, many of those jobs are. Barry said that less than two percent growth was the new normal. President Trump has it over four percent.
This is not the first time a Democrat has tried to steal the credit for a good economy. Former President Clinton did it all the time. It wasn't his idea to pass what Speaker Gingrich and Majority Leader Lott wrote and got passed in the House and Senate. That was the Contract With America.
When lowering taxes and restraining the growth of government succeeded in balancing the budget in three and a half years instead of the seven years that was originally forecast, there was Clinton to take all the credit. Our mainstream press was only too happy to echo his words. Gingrich and Lott were never mentioned.
I remember Clinton saying, "We are going to have two hundred billion dollar deficits for as far as the eye can see." He also said, "I can balance the budget in three years, five years, seven years, or even nine years." Clinton and his people repeated and repeated the claim that the Contract With America was fatally flawed and doomed to fail. The American people didn't believe their lies.
The truth is Clinton fought against the bill in every way he could. I am sure the only reason Clinton signed the bill was polling told him Americans wanted him to. Clinton lived by polling. Polling was even used to decide where to vacation!
Democrats forget that real Americans remember. We, not them ,try to learn from the past so we don't make the same dumb mistakes again and again. Sadly their base neither remembers nor wants to learn from history. So they continue to make the same mistakes only they hope for a different outcome! The real world doesn't work that way. It might work on a college white board, but not in the real world. Democrats and their base haven't figured that out yet.
So Barry is repeating Clinton. He is hoping with the help of the mainstream media lackeys that he will be able to steal the credit for President Trump's economy.
Neither will get credit for what the GOP has done here. Truth and facts rule here at Patriot's Heart. Spin is for the washing machine and gyroscopes.
