Skip to comments.Remember when Obama made fun of Trump's 'magic wand' to fix the economy?
Posted on 05/04/2019 5:04:27 AM PDT by RoosterRedux
Three years ago, then-president Barack Hussein Obama (D) mocked the plans of his sure-not-to-be-successor, Donald J. Trump (R), for the country, comparing them to his oh, so successful eight-year "scandal free," high unemployment, high food stamp use, successful administration.
"He just says, 'I'm gonna negotiate a better deal.' Well how? How exactly are you going to negotiate that?" Obama said during the town hall portion of the event. "What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn't have an answer."Well, that was then. And this is now.
To Obama's shock and dismay, Trump is president. For the past two and a half years, Trump has been waving his magic wand, banishing burdensome regulations; lowering taxes; appointing savvy people to top government posts; and yes, negotiating.
Friday's Drudge Report's banner headline sums up the pervasive success of Trump's magic negotiating wand, successfully sprinkling economic free-market magic dust equally on everyone.

Bambi, that is the difference between a leader and an affirmative action stooge.
Yes, I remember many times that Leftists mocked and ridiculed Trump, America, Americans, and everything that is good and decent and godly and sacred.
Trump’s magic wand was capitalism and the removal of stupid regulations. Of course, obama wouldn’t know anything about that.
Odungo is missing the adulation....the juvenile with NPD can’t understand how the world exist without his leadership....the poor POS
Obambi is trying to take credit now.
You know, for those jobs he insisted weren’t coming back?
Apparently Big Mike has Husseins “magic wand”.
Last night on the local NBC evening news they claimed that this was part of the expanding economy that started 10 years ago.
I nearly came unglued...
The 0ne may just go as stark raving mad about Trump as King George 111 did about George Washington.
The magic wand -- fewer regulations.
The NY Times attributed the growth in worker wages (first in many, many years) to the increased minimum wage in some cities.
Yeah, now the Obama machine lie of course is that Obama had the economy all set up for success.
Obama’s ‘magic wand’ response and his ‘you didn’t build that’ speech both had the same fulcrum point: nobody was permitted to propose any idea superior to Obama’s and nobody was permitted to claim intelligence superior to Obama’s.
In fact, almost any speech or remark from Obama includes a huffy, resentful quotient of ‘I’m smarter than you.’. It usually came in the form of ‘this notion that...’
He was a walking repository of neuroses stemming from his latchkey childhood.
Some great commercials are there to be made for Trump 2020. Just show clips of Obozo with his “magic wand” comment and Biden standing next to him while bragging about “shovel ready jobs” and the “recovery summer”, and then fast forward to “shovel ready wasn’t as shovel ready as we thought” with the sound of laughter from the audience. Finally, be sure to feature “these factory jobs are gone and are never coming back.” No need to pay zillions to an advertising firm. Just have a clip show of Obozo/Biden’s worst moments.
Like Hilda,the more he talks,the more people start to ignore....his “I don’t know nuffin” is not gonna work anymore
If you ask a conservative here what Trump has done to get the economy moving, he can list lots of stuff, such as reversing Obama EO’s and other policies, telling government agencies that they can no longer sit on applications for 10 to 15 years before responding, etc. All good and fine and that was EXACTLY what Trump promised to do [basically be another Reagan when it came to economic policy].
Now, the fun part. Ask a liberal what Obama did to help the economy during his 8 years. Maybe they’ll say ‘stimulus’, but besides that not helping, since it was top-down, it also was only during his first few years in office. Ask what he did after that, and they’re clueless - because everything that Obama did was in the OPPOSITE DIRECTION, so as to slow the country down [1 percent GNP growth, for example], with the goal of allowing the world to catch up with us...or even bringing us down to their level. Of course liberals will never say that - they’ll just give you that empty stare, knowing that you NAILED them.
Witnesses to the Barr hearing can attest to it.
"They done gone o'er the edge."
Fried chicken, anyone?
The video is really necessary here.
You can really see the hatred in 0bammy’s eyes
The. .....is beyond my vocabulary skills (tolerance)
Any tech guys out there to post that video?
Well, in a way they are correct.
Sometimes you have to do things the wrong way to figure out how to do them correctly.
In a similar manner as the booming economy in the 80s was a result of Carter.
