On the economic front, Obama bested Reagan

Quote
Economically, President Obama’s administration has outperformed President Reagan’s in all commonly watched categories.  Simultaneously the current administration has reduced the deficit, which skyrocketed under Reagan.  Additionally, Obama has reduced federal employment, which grew under Reagan (especially when including military personnel,) and truly delivered a “smaller government.”  Additionally, the current administration has kept inflation low, even during extreme international upheaval, failure of foreign economies (Greece) and a dramatic slowdown in the European economy.

Thanks JP! All you seem to get on main stream media is how bad he is doing or his vacations---like he doesn't need one putting up with all the filibustering religious based bigotry and special interest groups. Solitary

Yeah Reagan was 100% pro big government. As were the fascists.

I guess this means Obama is a good Republican and Reagan is a good Democrat.
White privilege is being a lifelong racist, then being sent to the White House twice because your running mate is a minority.

No Biden, no KKK, no Fascist USA!

However, his hated by conservatives is greater than any other president's hated by liberals.
I always wondered why having balls was equated with "strength".  Balls are sensitive and delicate, actually.   Better to grow a vagina.  Those things can take a pounding - and pop out a live human being the size of a watermelon.

good to see some news finally supporting our president. The media has poisoned the american people against a good president. I just hope republicans don't make it into office yet again and fuck every thing up.

Don't the Democrats consistently handle money better than the Republicans?   I seem to remember Bill Clinton presiding over a federal budget with a surplus.

Well he is half black.  Remember what you are dealing with when you say "conservatives."
The Christian church, in its attitude toward science, shows the mind of a more or less enlightened man of the Thirteenth Century. It no longer believes that the earth is flat, but it is still convinced that prayer can cure after medicine fails.

For what it's worth, I saw an article a few years ago that compared stock market performance under both Republican and Democratic presidents.  The market seems to have done slightly better under Democratic administrations.  Now it was not a significant difference, with just a slightly better performance, but it does rather undermine the perception that Republicans are better fiscal managers.

His foreign policy is still a fucking disaster.
Black lives matter, feminism is good, religion is bullshit, and if you disagree with me on any of these points you are a fucking moron.

Perhaps, still comparing to Bush, he's better. I know, comparing to Bush is setting the bar pretty low...
