Meeks: Obama Put Economy on Right Track and Trump ‘Doing Everything’ ‘to Destroy That’
That's certainly one perspective...
[BREITBART] On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s "Weekends with Alex Witt," Representative Gregory Meeks (D-NY) discussed President Trump’s threat to slap tariffs on Mexico over illegal immigration and argued that Trump "inherited" an economy that was trending in the right direction from President Obama, and Trump is "doing everything in his power to try to destroy that."

Meeks said, "Look, this president inherited an economy that was moving in the right direction. He should thank his soul that it was Barack Obama
That’s just how white folks will do you....
who put it together. He’s doing everything in his power to try to destroy that."

#1  What is an "economy" to a stupid, worthless, communist anyway?

Posted by: newc || 06/02/2019 1:19 Comments || Top||

#2  Yes indeed, just where would we be without Obama and his cohorts ?

#3  Meeks is a racialist idiot. Obama was God because he was black. Between Meeks and Alex Witt they still had half a mind

#4  A Great summary by a Notre Dame University engineer.

Here are the 10,535 pages of Obama Care condensed to 4 simple sentences.

As humorous as it sounds..... every last word is absolutely TRUE!

1. In order to insure the uninsured, we first have to un-insure the insured.

2. Next, we require the newly un-insured to be re-insured.

3. To re-insure the newly un-insured, they are required to pay extra charges to be re-insured.

4. The extra charges are required so that the original insured, who became un-insured, and then became re-insured,
can pay enough extra so that the original un-insured can be insured, so it will be 'free-of-charge' to them.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is called "redistribution of wealth" or, by its more common name, "SOCIALISM," or "PROGRESSIVISM", the politically correct names for COMMUNISM!

People who don't understand this are not capable of coming in out of the rain.

#5  ...and the IRS was extremely diligent in enforcing the Premium Tax Credit (the credit ($) the original uninsured receive from becoming insured). I have never seen the IRS so diligent and quick to respond to enforcing any tax matter under its purview.

#6  And when Republicans controlled both houses and had a Republican in the White House, they didn't repeal it.

#7  As for the credit for the economy, it isn't just Meeks who feels that way.

This is why I think it's naive to assume better economic times for blacks and Latinos will necessarily translate into votes for the GOP.

I get "expanding the base", but one can get too clever by half with that stuff.

You can put so much rhetoric and effort into it, that you ignore or even alienate the people who actually voted for you, while gaining nothing, or at least not gaining enough to make up for the loss.

We've already been down this road with the Bushes.

Meeks' attitude is a warning that Trump had better remember that mere boosterism is not a political strategy.

Veterans walk out of meeting with Ocasio-Cortez after she bashes US foreign policy
[NYPOST] Rep. Alexandria Boom Boom Ocasio-Cortez
Dem represntative from da Bronx in Noo Yawk and leader of the Mean Girl Caucus. She is known as much for her innaleck as for her dance moves. She is all in favor of socialism, even though she's fuzzy on the details..
bashed US foreign policy during a private meeting with Bronx community leaders, prompting two military veterans to storm out.

"She knocks the country, she knocks the president. And that’s not what America is about," said Silvio Mazzella, a Vietnam War vet and treasurer of Community Board 11.

Anthony Vitaliano ‐ an Army veteran who worked in the NYPD for 38 years, and commanded the Bronx’s homicide detectives ‐ was sitting between Ocasio-Cortez and a staffer for the freshman Dem.

"I just couldn’t hear her BS anymore," the former CB11 chairman said. "I just got up, got my umbrella in my hand and walked right out."

AOC held the closed-door meeting with about a dozen members of the board on Wednesday night, marking a rare visit to the Bronx part of her district.

One Middle Eastern board member raised the issue of the conflict in Yemen.

The progressive firebrand
...firebrands are noted more for audio volume and the quantity of spittle generated than for any actual logic in their arguments...
slammed the US policy of providing bombs to Soddy Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face...
, which has supported Yemen’s government in a brutal civil war, according to attendees. Some blamed her for not including the roles of other nations in explaining the volatile region’s violence.

#6  "They aways, like, talk about the Longest Day, but nobody, like, ever says just how long it was. I mean, does longest mean 27 hours or something? I've done bar shifts longer than that, but, like, nobody paid attention because I'm a POC."

De Blasio’s first endorsement comes from small town South Carolina mayor
[NYPOST] Mayor Bill de Blasio got his very first endorsement for president of the United States from ... wait for it ... the mayor of Orangeburg, SC.

That’s right ‐ Orangeburg, population 13,000.

Hizzoner had to work hard for the endorsement, making three trips to the tiny southern town before Mayor Michael Butler finally caved.

Still, Butler wasn’t exactly fulsome in his praise.

"I believe he would do a good job," he told the Orangeburg Times and Democrat.

Even the local paper couldn’t help but smile at de Blasio’s quixotic run, noting, "The third time’s a charm. Well, at least for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio."

The endorsement came as de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray crashed the monthly meeting of the Orangeburg County Democratic Party.

"His main message is putting working people first," Butler was quoted as saying in the Times and Democrat. "That’s what moved to me, working people first."

In March, Butler, who doubles as the bishop of the town’s Victory Tabernacle Deliverance Temple, inadvertently led de Blasio into flapping his arms during the choir’s rendition of R. Kelly’s "I Believe I Can Fly" ‐ an awkward display that earned Hizzoner a hail of criticism for seeming to condone the singer’s misogynistic behavior.
