According to Donald Trump, Obama is the worst president ever. I agree, as his terrible speech yesterday showed, the president has no ideas other than raising taxes and make government bigger, Which are two of the worst things you can do, even in good times. If high taxes solved problems, they’d never have been lowered. The fact is, high taxes hurts the economy. JFK lowered taxes in the 1960s from insanely high levels and the economy boomed. Government can’t do anything right as we’re witnessing every day. Making it bigger only makes certain it will all collapse sooner. Obama seems hell bent on making us the next Greece.
But Trump, who is winning over some people, was calling Obama potentially a great president before he was sworn in. Despite claims to the contrary, Trump was a McCain supporter it turns out. But I think his comments on Obama here have changed because he’s seen what Obama is made of now.
Being shills for the state, the press is going to try to tear down Trump now because he’s going after Obama. The problem for them is, Trump’s very media savvy and knows how to play them. As for Obama, Jay Cost at the Weekly Standard, one of the best political analysts working today, said it best about this president. He’s just plain bad at politics. What seemed like a brilliant campaign in 2008 was more like a clever opportunist being at the right place at the right time. Now that he has the job, he’s shown he’s incapable of doing it. And that’s bad for everyone. His policies effect the world. The fact remains that everything is looking bad for America as long as he’s in power.
We’re all waiting to see who gets to run against him. So far, Trump is making a good play.
