Obama’s Legacy


Can you honestly think of ONE GOOD THING OBAMA’S DONE?   Let’s try not to be partisan and give him some credit.  (I will now duck your rotten tomatoes and let you take over 🙂 !!

A couple of other things worth discussing, since I’m pretty sure my blog question won’t get lists of accomplishments (!),  :  I heard on L.A. Talk Radio last week that people were asked if they’d watch Megyn Kelly on NBC and only 7% said they’d be inclined to…!
ALSO;  O’Reilly mentioned last night the phenomenon I’ve noticed and commented on here; Republicans going on CNN to complain about Republicans.  He particularly mentioned Lindsay Graham, who I mentioned the other day in this context.   Weasels.

    The “ONE GOOD THING OBAMA’S DONE” is build the strongest Republican party ever as [he] decimated the DemocRAT party! I can think of nothing else.


  2. Kid says:

    What JMB said.


  3. Pretty much crickets here. So far.


  4. geeez2014 says:

    AOW….”crickets?”!! Chirp chirp chirp? I don’t know that expression!

    JMB and Kid…I hope that’s true and that that continues…

    EVERYBODY: I don’t watch awards shows anymore but I suppose you’ve all heard how Meryl STreep thinks all Trump’s supporters think it’s okay to be disrespectful to the handicapped….I don’t for a MINUTE believe Trump wasn’t mocking that handicapped reporter, no WAY, he never uses those arm movements and hasn’t SINCE…it just not what Trump does but he sure did in mimicking the reporter…and Kellyanne Conway saying “don’t believe his words, believe his heart” is pretty darned weak a defense (OMG)….
    But for STreep to suggest only his nonsupporters have a heart disgusted ME, big time.
    Here’s the part I’m referring to “It made its intended audience laugh and show their teeth.”
    Trump supporters were clearly what she meant as his intended audience….did any of YOU laugh and show your teeth when he mocked a severely disabled reporter?? I sure didn’t.

    Then Trump Twitters this morning “Meryl STreep, one of the most over rated actresses in Hollywood…..”. WHAT? I’m about the only person who doesn’t like Streep’s acting and really never has (honestly, she seems to play the same person with every role, in my opinion), but most people think she’s an amazing actress and she has HOW many Academy Awards?
    Why’s he have to come back with such stupid stuff?


  5. John M. Berger says:


  6. geeez2014 says:

    Streep was so upset over her friend Carrie Fisher’s death she started her speech last night with I’ve lost my voice in screaming and lamentation this weekend.”
    gad….I’m so sorry for her loss, but “Screaming and lamentation?”


  7. Kid says:

    I never cared for Streep so that makes two of us. I put her in the same category as Streisand. My Dad always said “Bunch of blowhards getting together to pat each other on the back” about award shows. I’ve never watched one.

    Hope you do something fun today ! 🙂


  8. Kid says:

    And who talks about politicians at an awards show, or a performance. Shut up and sign. These people need to get over themselves.


  9. geeez2014 says:

    THANKS, JMB!! I ADOOOORE Fred Astaire…and never knew Eleanor Powell danced! (I googled to see who the girl was, I knew it wasn’t Ginger!)
    I appreciate your having gone to the trouble…such a cute video!


  10. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, thanks….glad you agree on Streep…Mr. Z wouldn’t go to movies with lib celebs who mouthed off on their politics.
    She said TRUMP was ‘disrespectful’…I call her doing THIS ‘disrespectful, too. BUT, she knows she is in a safe crowd.


  11. Mollie Hemingway over at The Federalist, has a far better taledown of Meryl Streep, than I could ever gin up.


  12. Mal says:

    Well, you have to give Obama for killing Osama Bin Ladin (sp) because even if he didn’t do it personally, he got credit for being in office when it happened. Other than that, the thing I that first came to mind is what JMB said about ruining his party……which I REALLY loved!
    Z…..you didn’t know Eleanor Powell DANCED? M’GOD! That’s like saying you didn’t know Sinatra sang, or there is gambling in Vegas!



  13. geeez2014 says:

    Mal, I KNOW! You know how I know a LOT about those days in movies…she’s not typically known as a dancer but I guess she sure could dance!
    And yes, Obama was in office for OBL’s killing but it’s not like Bush didn’t try time after time but Obama held the gun on this try and finally aimed correctly, right? 🙂

    CI…good article, thanks. It is disrespectful to hurt those viewers who have just been told they don’t mind when people mock handicapped…….or even just to interrupt an awards ceremony for someone’s politics. just doesn’t make sense.
    Of course, if she wrote an article, not many’d read it; she was in a safe place to spew and had a huge audience to attack in TV land….not fair.
    But you have to admit Trump DID mock that reporter, right?


  14. Kid says:

    Z, Adrienne just posted this which makes a pretty good case Trump was not mocking the reporter.



  15. John M. Berger says:

    Yes, B.O. was masquerading as POTUS when bin Laden was killed, by brave Navy SEALS, but aren’t you a bit surprised that [he] even allowed that to happen to one of his Muslim brothers? BTW, didn’t that interrupt his golf game?


  16. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, I hadn’t seen those videos before and it makes sense…so all he has to say is “I’m so sorry it looked like I mocked him, I’d never do that, it’s a thing I do and I’m sorry it was mistaken for such a terrible thing to do to someone.”
    yes, that makes a good case and actually makes me feel better.

    JMB…yes, I think it DID interrupt his golf game! But what DIDN’T, right? 🙂

    Is there ANYTHING but the death of bin Laden we can credit to Obama? I honestly can’t think of a thing! That’s pretty darned amazing.
    and I AM SURE not going to listen to his speech tomorrow night/

    QUESTION TO YOU ALL; Do all presidents do farewell speeches? I don’t remember that…but that doesn’t mean anything.


  17. John M. Berger says:

    “Do all presidents do farewell speeches?”
    I don’t know but in terms of the [occasion] it will be, by far, his best; notwithstanding the content which is likely to be some self-serving/self-congratulatory BS!


  18. Kid says:

    Z, Agreed on Trump, but he is who he is. I’ll say I’m only focusing on Trumps decisions, cabinet choices, etc which I’m happy with. From a personal standpoint, I can think of many things I didn’t like about any president in my adult lifetime. You of course are more than welcome to your opinion and to voice it which I respect.

    I don’t remember Bush giving a farwell speech, don’t know about the others. George Washington did but that was advice for America not about hiim.

    Couple other thoughts though:

    – It took 3 months at least for obama to say Ok to the guys who had bin laden tagged with a location. It does not take 3 months for the SEALS to plan such a mission, so why was obama delaying? For this I give him no credit. He jsut happened to be POTUS when it happened like Clinton sat back and enjoyed the tail end of the Reagan economy, which he probably would have killed sooner if it wasn’t for the massive buildout of the internet in the late 90’s and the technical bubble it created.

    – I don’t believe obama was in that room during the bin laden raid. Looking at the picture, the first thing is that his head is too small compared to the other people in the room, plus as a meglomaniac POTUS, why is he stuffed into the corner and a one star general sitting at the head of the table. I absolutely believe he was photo shopped into that. And why did bin laden get a ‘proper islamic burial’, and why dropped into the sea instead of somewhere we could drop by and relieve ourselves. The guy is responsible for killing more people in a day than Peral Harbor. I don’t buy the martyr excuse. The mutts can just a easily make a fake grave for bin laden and go there to bend over and pray.
    As an American I WANT TO SEE THE VIDEO of him being taken out.
    Also If people can watch videos of ISIS burning 5 yr old boys alive, they can handle seeing a cockroach getting a couple in the head.


  19. Kid says:

    JMB – Heh.

    From my last post…..

    Asked by a tearful George Stephanopolousy to give one sentence as they leave the white house…

    Barry‘s final comment: I’m so happy to have been your greatest president ever.
    Michele: I can no longer be proud of my country.
    Sasha: I’m having the biggest reefer head rush right now
    Malia: Screw Whitey (hic)


  20. John M. Berger says:

    “………………………… I absolutely believe he was photo shopped into that.”
    GREAT OBSERVATION!!!! I can’t tell you how many times that I’ve thought the same thing.


  21. Kid says:

    JMB, Thanks. The body looks too small too. And other than the beast, he is the only one with a jacket on. It had to be hot in that room with all those 98.6 degree space heaters.


  22. Z-man says:

    His list of accomplishments: He had Osama bin Laden killed. The other thing is he had Osama bin Laden killed.


  23. FB says:

    He made me truly despise the Democratic party. That’s his biggest accomplishment.


  24. Z – But you have to admit Trump DID mock that reporter, right?

    Oh, absolutely.

    For farewell speeches, GW Bush gave one; Reagan gave one, Clinton…etc…..though none will compare to G. Washington’s.


  25. Imp says:

    If Lindsay Graham had any balls he’d be humping fire hydrants. The man proves he’s a eunuch time and time again. He needs his panties pulled down and given a good wire brush treatment.


  26. Mal says:

    Yes. Trump DID mock a handicap, and said other things like to McCain, which made me cringe as I am sure did the rest of us, but know what? I still voted for him as did others and for the same reason……we are confident he can and will do the job. And who he was running against also made the choice easier……………a LOT easier!


  27. -FJ says:

    Happy B.D.! 🙂


  28. Z,
    Can you honestly think of ONE GOOD THING OBAMA’S DONE?

    1. I think that he did something about making sure that we have at least two weeks to pay a credit card bill without any attached interest. Before that time, I’d get the bill, and it would be due really fast.

    2. Some of the measures about having an electronic medical charts online. I know that the threat of hacking is there, but having my medical chart — and Mr. AOW’s — accessible for me to update and for our various medical personnel to see has been a big convenience. And when I had the colon parasite, having my medical record so easily available may well have saved my life; I was so out of it and had no advocate.

    3. I personally benefited from Cash for Clunkers. It hurt the used car market, though.


  29. Z,
    BTW, “crickets” means that no human being is saying anything — as in the night when only crickets make noise.


  30. geeez2014 says:

    AOW…thanks on the crickets. Re paying bills, I remember when we had 30 days…now I feel I get a ‘payment due’ notice before I practically got the first bill…I swear!
    Yes, cash for clunkers did do some folks well….

    FJ…thanks so much!

    FB…THAT is my favorite of all the responses…

    Imp…isn’t he a WORM? I agree.

    CI…if you look at Kid’s link on Trump and mocking, you’ll see that he does this gesture from time to time….I honestly do NOT think he was mocking the reporter anymore…but I SURE DID.

    JMB and Kid… there was a lot of talk about how tiny Obama looks in that picture in comparison to others…
    It’s like Megyn Kelly on her show…the oddest thing I’ve never heard anybody mention is how she looked like Land of the Giants and her guests looked like dwarfs ….and she’s not a big person! Weird.
    TOnight’s Tucker Carlson’s debut in her time slot….bye bye, Megyn!

    Kid, this cracked me up!
    “Barry‘s final comment: I’m so happy to have been your greatest president ever.
    Michele: I can no longer be proud of my country.
    Sasha: I’m having the biggest reefer head rush right now
    Malia: Screw Whitey (hic)”

    And Michelle’s mama’s moving out, too…”back to making Michelle’s bed…dayum!” 🙂


  31. geeez2014 says:

    “To further prove that the Jan. 20 event will yield a huge turnout, he claimed that “all the dress shops are sold out in Washington. It’s hard to find a great dress for this inauguration.””

    It’s absolutely UNTRUE…Neiman Marcus and other big stores are saying they have many. many gowns to select from.l “Unless a thousand people come in today, we still have beautiful gowns to select from.”



  32. Bob says:

    Happy Birthday, Z. Early January birthdays have to be difficult because they come so soon after Christmas. At any rate, keep up whatever you are doing because it is obviously doing good.

    There is one thing that Obama did that makes everybody’s health insurance cost more, but I have always thought would be a good thing, and that is requiring health insurance companies to insure people regardless of existing conditions. Many of these conditions are self-inflicted (lung cancer caused by smoking, alcoholism, etc.), but there are also many maladies that a person cannot control, or are genetically related.


  33. Kid says:

    Z, Trump. One thing occured to me today and the Dress Shops comment is a perfect example because it is so stupid. He might be doing this to stay under the skin of the libs and regardless if it is intentional or not, he sure is under their skin and that pleases me to no end. lol.

    I should have been a defense lawyer? Naw… Prosecutor maybe.


  34. Mal says:

    JMB, yes. I WAS surprised Obama gave the OK to get OBL. Sometimes people do things that surprise us, don’t they? And it probably ruined his golf game and the rest of the day for the poor guy. Its tough being numero uno.


  35. cube says:

    First of all, Happy Birthday fellow Capricorn. As to naming one good thing zero did, I can’t think of one. The ones AOW mentioned seemed small and like she was digging for something. I’ll give her credit for finding something. For those who bring up UBL’s killing, it just seems that much was done behind the scenes to make it look like he had a bigger hand in it than he did. I have a hard time believing what zero says to what zero really does behind his historically non-transparent administration.


  36. Happy Birthday.
    As to Obama taking down Osama: didn’t do it.
    Seals did it. Acting on info gathered by people working on it long before Obama.


  37. Kid says:

    Ed, All the choom did was pick up a phone and say “Ok”, and he did it at least 3 months too late.


  38. Kid says:

    Z, Michelle’s mom might have to be evicted. You know how they are…


  39. And here’s to you Mrs. Robinson.
    Get out.


  40. Baysider says:

    He’s the ONLY president who presided over an economy with less than 3% growth.
    He’s emboldened Israel’s enemies (and those of all civilized nations).
    He’s made race relations the worst they’ve been since the civil rights era, and at least then they made noise over real injustices.


  41. Baysider says:

    PS – good things in the view of those who hate America, domestic and foreign


  42. John M. Berger says:

    In reference to “he claimed that “all the dress shops are sold out in Washington.” Now, really, don’t you see his humor?


  43. geeez2014 says:

    Ed,,,coo coo cachoo….good one 🙂

    Baysider..too true, sadly…and yes, they’re very good things for Obama and his fellow America haters.

    Kid…picked up a phone…THAT is all he did, yup
    I don’t think Trump does that stuff for those reasons but I hope you’re right. SOme on FOX were saying he says this stuff cuz it gets people off track…bitching about stuff like this when really BIG things are happening….to get their minds off the important stuff let them bitch about the tiny stuff…like I DID 🙂

    Bob, thank you! I wonder about the preexisting conditions thing..>I believe it was Gutfeld the other day who said that’s really not a very conservative concept; and he made sense. BUT, I agree, it’s helped a HECK of a lot of people.
    What makes me laugh is how the left constantly portrays the Right as having had NO ideas …and it was the Right who brought up preexisting conditions, and particularly the buying of insurance over state lines….which also makes good sense.
    And I have NEVER EVER felt my birthday got short shrift…thank GOODNESS, because you’re right..many do feel that way!!!

    Cube! You a Capricorn, too? What day?


  44. cube says:

    January 3rd. I have to agree with Bob, though. With my birthday so close after Christmas and New Year’s, I do feel like it would’ve been nice to have been born later in the year and been given a bit of a breather. Truth be told, I never got a real birthday party and now I’ll never agree to one… ever.


  45. Baysider says:

    Missed it’s your BIRTHDAY! Yes, I have a girlfriend who’s a Jan 6 gal, and she threw her Christmas party late for her bday. Hope you had joy and good things.


  46. geeez2014 says:

    Cube, that’s not right!
    I have to say I always got a birthday party…maybe those extra six days give a breather??

    Had a FABULOUS birthday dinner with 3 girlfriends…lunch with a sister….lovely presents…and it’s not over yet 🙂

    CI, by the way..thanks for the info on presidential farewell speeches…I like the idea, just don’t remember hearing of any…but washington’s. I need to look that up again.
    And, of course, Obama’s will be different…….a kind of mystical fantasyspeech! :=


  47. Cube,
    The ones AOW mentioned seemed small and like she was digging for something. I’ll give her credit for finding something.

    Had to think about the question for hours!


  48. cube says:

    Baysider: I’ve always been fortunate enough with family blessings that I never resented not having a birthday party. When I was little I wasn’t too happy with getting ONE present for Christmas AND my birthday from certain relatives, though.


  49. Sparky says:

    Happy Birthday Z! “And many more … ” 🙂
    As for the man who calls himself Obama’s ‘accomplishments’. Yeah, he has one that sticks out like a [pardon the analogy] sore thumb: he has pretty much single-handedly almost destroyed the Demoncratic Party. *applause* America couldn’t have done it alone.


  50. cube says:

    Z: When my sister started calling about throwing me a 50th birthday party, I refused. All my life I never had a party and now she’s being very insistent. I finally told her that if she did throw me one, I’d walk out. I knew what she was up to… she was going to make it an “over the hill” party with cheesy party favors like walkers, and adult diapers, etc..

    She turned 50 in 2016 and I asked her if she wanted me to throw her a party. She said, “No.” I left it at that.


  51. cube says:

    AOW: Lol. It took hours of research.


  52. Mal says:

    GEEEEZ! I totally missed it was your BD, Z! Hope it was great.


  53. John M. Berger says:

    My last SURPRISE PARTY was @ age 50. Everybody showed-up except one-ME (LOL).
