But I wanted to look back over the last 8 years and ask you a few questions. Since much of the rhetoric before Obama was elected was that he would impose Sharia Law, Take Away Your Guns, Create Death Panels, Destroy the Economy, Impose Socialism and, since you will agree that NONE of this came to pass, I was wondering: Why have you suffered so?
Here are some.

So let me ask: Gays and Lesbians can now marry and enjoy the benefits they had been deprived of. Has this caused your suffering?


When Obama took office, the Dow was 6,626. Now it is 19,875. Has this caused your suffering?
After the 2008 crash that was caused by the Democratic sponsored "Community Reinvestment Act"

We had 82 straight months of private sector job growth – the longest streak in the history of the United States. Has this caused your suffering?
When you start from the bottom, the only way to go is up.

Especially considering where the economy was when he took over, an amazing 11.3 million new jobs were created under President Obama (far more than President Bush). Has this caused your suffering?
When you start from the bottom, the only way to go is up.

Obama has taken Unemployment from 10% down to 4.7%. Has this caused your suffering?
Nearly all job growth was in the PUBLIC sector, in other words, government jobs paid for by the taxpayers.

Homelessness among US Veterans has dropped by half. Has this caused your suffering?
Simply NOT TRUE.

Obama shut down the US secret overseas prisons. Has this caused your suffering?
Big mistake. They were very useful squeezing information from terrorists.

President Obama has created a policy for the families of fallen soldiers to have their travel paid for to be there when remains are flown home. Has this caused your suffering?


We landed a rover on Mars. Has this caused your suffering?


He passed the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act. Has this caused your suffering?
Useless and worthless. All of the illegal acts were already covered.

Uninsured adults has decreased to below 10%: 90% of adults are insured – an increase of 20 Million Adults. Has this caused your suffering?
Also a total lie.

People are now covered for pre-existing conditions. Has this caused your suffering?
ONE good thing.

Insurance Premiums increased an average of $4,677 from 2002-2008, an increase of 58% under Bush. The growth of these insurance premiums has gone up $4,145 – a slower rate of increase. Has this caused your suffering?
Total LIE. My premiums went from $400 to $1050 per month thanks to Obamacare.

Obama added Billions of dollars to mental health care for our Veterans. Has this caused your suffering?


Consumer confidence has gone from 37.7 to 98.1 during Obama’s tenure. Has this caused your suffering?
Again, it had nowhere to go but UP.

He passed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Has this caused your suffering?


His bi-annual Nuclear Summit convinced 16 countries to give up and destroy all their loose nuclear material so it could not be stolen. Has this caused your suffering?
We see how well that worked in the case of North Korea & Iran.

He saved the US Auto industry. American cars sold at the beginning of his term were 10.4M and upon his exit 17.5M. Has this caused your suffering?
From the bottom of a Democratic-caused recession.

The deficit as a percentage of the GDP has gone from 9.8% to 3.2%. Has this caused your suffering?
Another lie.

The deficit itself was cut by $800 Billion Dollars. Has this caused your suffering?
Another lie. The debt DOUBLED during Obama's tenure in office.

Obama preserved the middle class tax cuts. Has this caused your suffering?
MY taxes went UP as they always do after a "tax cut".

Obama banned solitary confinement for juveniles in federal prisons. Has this caused your suffering?
Yes. It permitted the worst offenders to terrorize the rest.

He signed Credit Card reform so that rates could not be raised without you being notified. Has this caused your suffering?

Phooey

He doubled Pell Grants. Has this caused your suffering?

A gross lie. Obama fanned the flames of inter-racial hatred and caused a huge increase in violent crime during his last two years.

He overturned the scientific ban on stem cell research. Has this caused your suffering?
That WAS a good thing.

He protected Net Neutrality. Has this caused your suffering?

Yes, great suffering. My bills have gone UP and my income has gone down. Thanks, Obama, NOT.

President Obama repealed Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Has this caused your suffering?
Crap.

He banned torture. Has this caused your suffering?
Yes. Sometimes the ONLY way to get information out of terrorists is to abuse them brutally.

He negotiated with Syria to give up its chemical weapons and they were destroyed. Has this caused your suffering?
Utter FAILURE. Syria used its "non-existent" chemical weapons again earlier this year.

Solar and Wind Power are at an all time high. Has this caused your suffering?


High School Graduation rates hit 83% – an all time high. Has this caused your suffering?

Again, starting from the bottom.

He normalized relations with Cuba. Has this caused your suffering?
Big WHOOP. It did nothing for the USA, although it was stupid to refuse diplomatic relations with Cuba.

Reliance on foreign oil is at a 40 year low. Has this caused your suffering?
Obama fought tooth and nail AGAINST increased oil production and against fracturing.

US Exports are up 28%. Has this caused your suffering?


He appointed the most diverse cabinet ever. Has this caused your suffering?
Yes. The biggest bunch of incompetents and thieves in the history of the United States.

He reduced the number of troops in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Has this caused your suffering?
And permitted ISIS to grow from zero into a major force.

Yes, he killed Osama Bin Laden and retrieved all the documents in his possession for analysis. Perhaps THIS caused your suffering?
Found on the basis of torture that he forbid.

From an objective standpoint it would appear that the last eight years have seen some great progress and we were saved from a financial collapse. Things are not perfect. Things can always be better. We are on much better footing now than we were in 2008.


I look forward to understanding what caused you to suffer so much under Obama these last eight years.”
