Trump supporters say, "We suffered 8 years under Barack Obama". Fair enough. Let's take a look....

The day Obama took office, the Dow closed at 7,949 points. Eight years later, the Dow had almost tripled.
General Motors and Chrysler were on the brink of bankruptcy, with Ford not far behind, and their failure, along with their supply chains, would have meant the loss of millions of jobs. Obama pushed through a controversial, $80 billion bailout to save the car industry. The U.S. car industry survived, started making money again, and the entire $80 billion was paid back, with interest.
While we remain vulnerable to lone-wolf attacks, no foreign terrorist organization has successfully executed a mass attack here since 9/11.
Obama ordered the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden.
He drew down the number of troops from 180,000 in Iraq and Afghanistan to just 15,000, and increased funding for the Department of Veterans Affairs.
He launched a program called Opening Doors which, since 2010, has led to a 47 percent decline in the number of homeless veterans. He set a record 73 straight months of private-sector job growth.
Due to Obama’s regulatory policies, greenhouse gas emissions decreased by 12%, production of renewable energy more than doubled, and our dependence on foreign oil was cut in half.
He signed The Lilly Ledbetter Act, making it easier for women to sue employers for unequal pay.
His Omnibus Public Lands Management Act designated more than 2 million acres as wilderness, creating thousands of miles of trails and protecting over 1,000 miles of rivers.
He reduced the federal deficit from 9.8 percent of GDP in 2009 to 3.2 percent in 2016.
For all the inadequacies of the Affordable Care Act, we seem to have forgotten that, before the ACA, you could be denied coverage for a pre-existing condition and kids could not stay on their parents’ policies up to age 26.
Obama approved a $14.5 billion system to rebuild the levees in New Orleans.
All this, even as our own Mitch McConnell famously asserted that his singular mission would be to block anything President Obama tried to do.
While Obama failed on his campaign pledge to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay, that prison’s population decreased from 242 to around 50.
He expanded funding for embryonic stem cell research, supporting ground breaking advancement in areas like spinal injury treatment and cancer.
Credit card companies can no longer charge hidden fees or raise interest rates without advance notice.
Most years, Obama threw a 4th of July party for military families. He held babies, played games with children, served barbecue, and led the singing of “Happy Birthday” to his daughter Malia, who was born on July 4.
Welfare spending is down: for every 100 poor families, just 24 receive cash assistance, compared with 64 in 1996.
Obama comforted families and communities following more than a dozen mass shootings. After Sandy Hook, he said, “The majority of those who died today were children, beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old.”
Yet,
he never took away
anyone’s guns........
He sang Amazing Grace, spontaneously, at the altar.
He was the first president since Eisenhower to serve two terms without personal or political scandal.
He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
President Obama was not perfect, as no man and no president is, and you can certainly disagree with his political ideologies. But to say we suffered?
If that’s the argument, if this is how we suffered for 8 years under Barack Obama, I have one wish:
may we be so fortunate as to suffer 8 more."

I miss this man and his family soooo much! ❤️💛💚💙💜💓💗

They experienced a lot of overt racism, and I mean a lot. Yet he always seemed to rise above it, and I certainly never, ever felt he hated anyone. In fact, with the Obamas in the WH, I always felt safe, and that there was a nice future.

Now we have the orange traitor in there, totally incompetent, totally corrupt, wrecking everything that benefits us and giving the treasury to oligarchs. The US has become a fascist oligarchy under the party of Trump.

They are the party of Lincoln no more; now, they are the party of treason.

depth and pervasive hatred generated and taught on
RW sites is hatred of Democrats. Black Democrats, worse. But hello, Democrats are equated as the devil, pure evil, and conspiring with the dark forces that will summon satan. After all, they kill live babies after they are born. They are pedophiles. They hate America, People really believe this. What can be done about this, I don't know. But it will take this country down if we can't stop the hate.

I'm not sure how that could happen with social media as pervasive as it is. Hard now to get into other peoples' bubble. We Dems tend to keep track of what the opposition is saying, but rank and file Republicans? Nope. They just believe what Rush and the other hate-shock-jocks spout out, and what the talking propaganda-heads on Fox say every night.

Tough to break through that.

Most people here (and everywhere else for that matter) knows he is a cold, calculating snake. The only "suffering" anyone has had to endure the past four decades is solely the responsibility of republicans.

42. And for all his efforts, the RW called him a Kenyan-muslim-socialist-marxist-communist-radical...

Along with numerous, endless, shameful racist epithets. They claimed that Michelle Obama was once a man, who underwent gender-reassignment surgery. Just incredibly mean and destructive stuff, whipped up and amplified by the usual suspects: Fox, Alex Jones, Hannity, Rush, etc., etc.

Not to be caught napping, the same deplorable assholes claimed Obama was going to invade Texas in 2015 (“Operation Jade Helm”), which turned out to be a concerted disruptive effort by Russian operatives, one which likely made them decide to meddle in the U.S. election process:

https://www.texastribune.org/2018/05/03/hysteria-over-jade-helm-exercise-texas-was-fueled-russians-former-cia-/
The Texas Tribune
May 3, 2018
Hysteria over Jade Helm exercise in Texas was fueled by Russians, former CIA director says

A former director of the CIA and NSA said Wednesday that hysteria in Texas over a 2015 U.S. military training exercise called Jade Helm was fueled by Russians wanting to dominate “the information space,” and that Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's decision to send the Texas State Guard to monitor the operation gave them proof of the power of such misinformation campaigns.

Michael Hayden, speaking on MSNBC’s Morning Joe podcast, chalked up peoples’ fear over Jade Helm 15 to “Russian bots and the American alt-right media [that] convinced many Texans [Jade Helm] was an Obama plan to round up political dissidents.”

Abbott ordered the State Guard to monitor the federal exercise soon after news broke of the operation. Hayden said that move gave Russians the go-ahead to continue — and possibly expand — their efforts to spread fear.

“At that point, I’m figuring the Russians are saying, ‘We can go big time,’” Hayden said of Abbott's response. “At that point, I think they made the decision, ‘We’re going to play in the electoral process.’”

I mean.. What kind of tease doesn't take their guns when they are all worked up and want to have protests and live out their Red Dawn fantasies?

What kind of horrible maniac gives women more rights when that comes at the cost of corporations that fund republican donors.

And worse yet.. Killing the boogeyman that they use to justify multiple invasions and the regular, ongoing killing of brown people, and doing it in a way that makes the previous Republican godking look bad!

I could go point by point, but the gist is: Obama is a monster! A Monster I tells ya.

53. Anyone who says they were "suffering" under Obama...

...has no right to accuse anyone else of being "snowflakes."

Nor, for that matter, "low information voters".

54. Suffering: Being bested by an ivy league anti-gun, non-fundamentalist black professor.

Such. Agony. For. Assholes.

57. He was the greatest President of my long adult life.

I keep in mind that in 2008, I merely expected him to be good, not great.

I vastly underestimated him.

The symbolism is that after 222 years, the Oval Office finally got "integrated" (and not just with cleaning or cooking staff)... and that just caused head explosions and they still haven't recovered!

62. I have a childhood friend, small business owner, who was screaming at me

one day about Obama being the worst President of all time. I asked him what made him the worst and he couldn’t name anything. I told him he has been brainwashed by Fox and RW radio. I told him, “All you hear is negative BS about Obama in your media, most of which were lies!” Told him to try some other media to get a full picture then come talk to me, until then STFU!

That is what we are dealing with, a programmed cult who is conditioned to think that all other media are lying and not to listen to them. They have been made angry and afraid and told that it is the libs fault they are struggling.

75. The "programmed cult" will STAY programmed and active forever

unless we decide that free speech doesn't include lying.

Oh, the suffering! The tan suit! The Grey Poupon! Reaching over the Chipotle sneeze guard!

They suffered, oh how they suffered! We should build a memorial to all the brave Christian martyrs who suffered for the republican cause!

68. None of this matters to them.

It's a cult of hate. Facts don't matter.

77. I about blew a gasket

During the Obama administration, some guy is grousing about Obama. Okay, I can let anything be. He doesn't like him, whatever. But he finishes his grouse with. "And a white man can't get elected any more". I blew up. I ripped out money from my wallet and said "point to the guy that's not white! One guy, one SINGLE guy gets elected that's not white and THAT'S what your pissed about?"

And ya know what, that's EXACTLY what he was pissed about.

81. Suffering means that white assholes had to hide their racism.

Now they can be racist assholes out in the open thanks to Chump and Fox News.

86. They did suffer...

1. They hated seeing a black man in the Oval office.
2. They hated how he was for ALL Americans.
3. Their fear of white privilege in so called jeopardy was making them nervous. They thought, what next a Latino President a Jewish President?
4. They hated seeing the lives of people made better

So yes, they did "suffer" under his Administration
