The Obama Years in 9 Charts
Says it all.  Yet his approval rating hover around 50%.  We have become a nation of the uninformed, ill-informed, misinformed and I don't care as long as government gives me a tax credit or tax refund.

Gee, RW Dad, you should be cheering.

You're against student loans, against food stamps, against labor; you got almost everything you've been voting for. The billionaires are laughing all the way to the bank every day. You've won!

So why aren't you happy?

Worker's share of the economy? Sounds pretty socialist to me.

Imagine how those charts might look if any of President Obama's proposed policies had actually been permitted to receive a vote in Congress.

The week Obama took office, Mitch McConnell vowed that Republicans would oppose every single thing this president proposed.

They've done that. Lyndon Johnson was Senate Majority Leader from 1955-1961. During that six year span, Republicans filibustered two pieces of legislation.

During a similar length of time, 2009-2015, when Harry Reid was Senate Majority Leader, Republicans filibustered four hundred twenty nine pieces of legislation.

Yeah, there's blame for what's going on. We have problems and the President has proposed solutions that have been blocked by Republicans to an unprecedented degree.

You got a complaint? Talk to Mitch McConnell about it.

Prior three comments pretty much sums it up.

So lessee why this rightwing think tank is sending this out to RWD. It's highly unusual for some think tank to, you know, send RWD something factual, which this is. So, it's 2016... and I wonder what's happening right now?? hmmmmm, let me put on my thinking cap and try to figure that out.

RWD has been duly instructed to hate Obama and the "DemoRATS;" RWD has clapped and cheered for every single obstructionist vote against everything and anything the "DemoRATS" or Obama proposed. And frankly, WTF have Republicans proposed in Congress to actually, you know, address these problems???

Yes, RWD, these ARE huge issues. What are your proposed solutions that would somehow magically be so different from what Democrats have proposed? You all HATE the Detroit bail out, which ensured that at least some jobs were saved. If Obama hadn't proposed that, workers would be even worst off. But you'll bitch and whine about that until the end of time bc some N****r proposed it.

All of the commenters here, and others on the left, have been using charts and graphs like this for the past 8 years (and longer). And what happens? All you want to do, RWD, is shout and scream at us about how we're "Liberal weenies," how we're stupid and ignorant, and how we don't know what we're talking about.

Who's talking about these issues now, RWD?? You? It's called many many days too late and many many dollars too short. And yeah, the billionaires are laughing all the way to their many off-shore accounts at how stupid you and how easy you are to manipulate. Just rile you up to hate on "liberals," the blahs, the women, the homosexuals, the Mexicans, the Muslims, ISIS... yell out all your nasty racist, sexist, bigoted, ignorant slurs and BINGO!!! You're just such happy little fuck. And this, RWD, is the result of your eight your long voyage of sheer barking insanity and stupidity.

Enjoy. Some blah lost his job. Should make you damn proud and happy.

Thx 4 Fish said...

These may be factual charts, but I was unable to zoom in to actually read any of the detail. No, RWD isn't interested in the details, accusing others of being uninformed and misinformed with mindless irony.

The think tanks have filled the information superhighway with a trifecta of hate, fear and tribal dreck, which has finally backfired on them as their propaganda-targeted audience, now brimming with righteous disaffection, turn on the party establishment. Congrats to the think tanks, wealthy Republican donors and party leadership on your harvest of dumbfuckery. The country will bear long-term scars from these decades of no-nothing insanity.

Whut? First we had Fox deliver a FACT-filled "debate" hammer to Herr Trump, in an effort to edumacate Trump's dittoheads to the reality of der Donald. Then some spook pulled on Trump's coat and made him publically retract his insane torture statements (of course, those were resoundingly clapped and cheered by Trump's dittoheads). And now here comes some rightwing think tank with factual charts and graphs about the suckitude of the US economy, especially for workers??

I'm not sure that conservatives can handle a steady diet of factual reality. This last little message may go the way of the do-do... off to obscurity. I think it might be too late to bring conservatives back from the la-la land that the great rightwing propaganda Wurlitzer has sent them.

Nice try. Of course, the facts in this one are blamed, per usual, on the MuslimNaziKenyanHomo Usurper.

@ Hooray4US
When have the Republicans been interested in facts or reality for that matter? The last debate centered around the size of Trumps dick. They are right on track to appealing to the resident troll.

In every state where they've had a caucus, Trump has won. When they have a primary Rubio or Cruz has won. Trump appeals to the low brow insult slinging ditto heads that don't think or research anything and dwell in the echo chamber. In an open election with independent voters he does not fair very well.

By the way, I like the graphs that you cannot read or even see what they are displaying, you just see a header then lines going up and down, nice job RWD.

Well, well, well....Seems to me that the majority of "low-information" poorly educated, mostly African-American voters couldn't even read this god damned charts because they can not:

1) Read English (perhaps Ebonics, yes)

2) Can not comprehend how x and y axis charts work.

3) They are too busy trying to figure out who their Daddy's are...so they don't care about these charts as they just want to make sure there EBT cards are reloaded to either use or sell to the highest bidder on the street,

*their.....not "there"....oops!

CharlieE said...

Hmmm. Looks like Mike Hawk is now supporting a massive increase in spending for inner city education.

Who'd have thought?

Son of Strom said...

Question Mike: would you have the balls to say that to the face of an African American man, or are you just a chicken-shit loser sitting in your parents basement in your underwear writing the most racist crap you can think of?

Mike Hawk said...

@Son of Strom: Yes and Yes

P.S. - My underwear are actually banana hammocks.....

I seriously doubt the troll would repeat that to a large AA male's face. Methinks the troll is a low-life, scum sucking, fat rat lying sack of shit...but I don't mean that in a bad way.

Agent86: I can tell you are not a Southerner, or you would have ended your statement with "Bless his heart."

@Son of Strom,

I am from the south, born and raised in probably the reddest state in the union Texas. There are pockets of intelligent life though..Rick Perry not inclusive.
