Schumer is Right – Trump Owes the Success of His First Year to Obama

Elder Patriot – Prior to President Trump’s State of the Union address, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer made a ten-minute speech of his own in an attempt to take the wind out of Trump’s now billowing sails before he took the podium.

Schumer, who has coordinated Democrat resistance in the Senate to Trump’s common sense solutions, actually made sense with his comments yesterday, though he didn’t mean it in that way.

“The White House says the president intends to take credit for the economy.  He thinks our economic recovery is all thanks to him when reality is he owes a lot of it to Barack Obama.

“Two words I don’t think we’ll hear tonight, thanks Obama.”

I hate to admit it but Schumer is right.  If Obama hadn’t strangled American businesses with confiscatory taxes, job killing, stifling regulations, and one-sided trade deals that drained the wealth of Americans, Trump would still be building hotels and golf courses.

There’s no doubt but that Obama teed it up for any successor who embraced free market capitalism and had the cojones to withstand the attacks from Marxist Dems and the mainstream media.

Of course that wasn’t the Democrats’ plan when they ran Hillary to succeed Obama.  She was expected to finish putting the nails in the coffin of free-market America.

Trump simply did what Trump has always done.  He saw a deeply distressed property that held great potential and he decided to restore it to its previous glory.

Had Obama not driven America into the ground to the extent that he did, Trump never would’ve gotten involved and someone else would be president.

So, let’s all say this together – THANKS OBAMA.
