Obama's speech today

  • Obama's speech today should have tRump having a conniption fit.:blueflower

    Barack Obama mocked Donald Trump for his China bank account and failure to propose a health plan in a rousing speech.

    The former president blasted his successor and told his audience in Philadelphia: “Tweeting at the TV doesn’t fix things.”

    It is the first time that Mr Obama has been out on the campaign trail for his former vice president Joe Biden.

    And he did not waste any time in taking shots at Mr Trump.

    “I get that this president wants full credit for the economy that he inherited, and zero blame for the pandemic that he ignored," said Mr Obama.

    “But you know what the job doesn't work that way. Tweeting at the television doesn't fix things. Making stuff up doesn't make people's lives better. You've got to have a plan, you’ve got to put in the work.”

    Mr Obama said that he had left the White House a playbook to deal with a pandemic but joked that Mr Trump was probably using it “to prop up a wobbly table somewhere.”

    “Donald Trump isn’t suddenly going to protect all of us, he can’t take the basic steps to protect himself,” said Mr Obama.

    “Just last night he complained that the pandemic made him go to work, he was upset, if he had actually been working the whole time it would never have got this bad.

    “Somehow the idea that this White House has done anything but screw this up is just not true.”

    Mr Obama then attacked Mr Trump for the economic damage he had caused the US.

    “He did inherit the longest streak of job growth in American history but just like everything else he inherited he messed it up," said Mr Obama.

    "The economic damage he inflicted by botching the pandemic response means he will be the first president since Herbert Hoover to actually lose jobs.”

    Mr Obama then said that Mr Biden would “restore our standing in the world.”

    “A nation that stands with democracy not dictators,” said Mr Obama.

    “With Joe and Kamala at the helm you are not going to have to think about the crazy things they said every day and that is worth a lot.

    "You are not going to have to argue about them every day. It just won’t be so exhausting.

    "You may be able to have Thanksgiving dinner without having an argument.

    "You'll be able to go about your lives knowing that the president is not going to retweet conspiracy theories about secret cabals running the world or that Navy SEALs didn't actually kill bin Laden.

    “Think about that. The president of the United States retweeted that. Imagine. What? What?”

    Mr Obama added that the country would not accept the president’s behaviour from anyone but a “crazy uncle.”

    tRump is the Master of the Con with 70 years of practice/experience. It is sad that so many supposedly intelligent and educated people fall for his cons.

    DJ Trump: while I support the Dems, if I ran I would run as a Republican because those people are easy to fool.

  • Bravo.

    Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies, The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. — C.S. Lewis
