Barack Obama's failed resethttps://t.co/NKRzDgMJ18— Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) November 29, 2018
...Tuesday night, Barack Obama visited the Baker Institute at Rice University in Houston, Texas, and he came off as a man who is obsessed with himself and obsessed with taking credit for another guy's (Trump's) success. Here’s just some of what he said:
“And by the way, American energy production, you wouldn't always know it but, you know, it went up every year when I was president. And you know that whole, suddenly America is like the biggest oil producer and the biggest -- that was me, people. I just want you to… Sometimes you go to Wall Street and folks would be grumbling about anti-business. I said have you checked where your stocks were when I came into office and where they are now. What are you talking -- what are you complaining about? Just say thank you please.”
No, thank you. Obama's efforts at legacy building notwithstanding the difference between the two president's economic records are stark.
Now Andy Puzder, former fast food exec and one-time Trump labor secretary nominee wrote a fantastic piece in Tuesday's "Wall Street Journal."
He compared the end of the Obama economy with the beginning of the Trump economy....
"GDP growth staggered along at 1.5 percent in Mr. Obama's final six full quarters in office. But growth doubled to 3 percent during Mr. Trump's first six full quarters. … The increase in job openings over Mr. Trump's first 21 months has averaged an impressive 75,000 a month. But over Mr. Obama's last 20 months in office, the number of job openings increased an average of 900 a month. Well, during Mr. Obama's last 21 months, the number of employed Americans increased -- not bad -- an average of 157,000 a month. But under Mr. Trump, the increase has accelerated to 214,000 a month. A whopping 36 percent improvement.”

Barack Obama lectured America about the migrant caravan earlier this month, saying:— Benny (@bennyjohnson) November 27, 2018
- Thousands of miles away
- A ‘political stunt’
- ‘Made up’
- GOP ‘Hoodwinking’ voters on issue
I overlaid footage of the caravan throwing rocks & storming the border over Obama’s lecture.
Exactly. Then AG @EricHolder said he was the president's "wing man," stonewalled congress on Fast and Furious, was held in contempt, then was let off by @BarackObama's bogus Executive Privilege. That no one was indicted is proof of how CORRUPT they were, not how honest. https://t.co/sTopdIQw39— Andrew Klavan (@andrewklavan) November 29, 2018
