You may be right. It's certainly historic to have a president who seemingly is more loyal to Russia than the U.S. Constitution. Who loves Putin but hates the First Ammendment.

Hey, I keep hoping Trump proves me wrong. He campaigned as an outsider and said he was going to "drain the swamp". Well, I and the rest of America are still waiting.

Because so far...

"[Trump] refused to release his tax returns, called himself smart for not paying taxes and still became a hero to working-class people unhappy about the rigged economy. 

[Trump] ripped Wall Street and Hillary Clinton’s ties to Goldman Sachs, then used the firm as a farm system for his inner circle, nominating as Treasury secretary someone who made a fortune when his bank foreclosed on thousands of working folks.

Donald Trump promised to drain the swamp, and already he has started refilling it with champagne, surrounding himself with one-percenters.

Energy tycoons. Climate change deniers. An alt-right mogul. A billionaire chosen for education secretary who doesn’t seem to like public schools. A Labor Department nominee who said of his company’s Carl’s Jr. TV ads, “I like beautiful women eating burgers in bikinis.” And to lead health and human services, Trump picked a congressman who invested in a medical device manufacturing company days before introducing a bill that would have benefited the company."

Just more proof that the country has become a more divided nation under Obama. Trump hasn't even taken the oath for president yet, and you're only showing yourself, under Obama. This proves that the current president of the past 8 years has divided the country.

You should be proud of it, Strider, instead of bitching about someone taking over an administration in inheriting a 20 Trillion dollar debt. Bumbles inherited a 9 Tril debt. Looks to me like he took advantage of you and the rest of us.

As for Communism, she lost. Sorry but Saul Alinsky's worshipper lost. I'm sorry, Strider, but we still have democracy in the USA, not Communism.

:hysterical:

Sorry, but Hollywood is run by Communists. China owns Hollywood. It is what it is.

If you don't like Communism, then welcome your new president. BTW, Russia is no longer communist, as our former president is. ^^

Barack Obama, in a tweet that said: "Countries bombed: Obama 7, Bush 4."

At the time, the U.S. on Obama’s watch had bombed Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, Libya and Syria.

How many ledzeppelin forum fans enjoy murderers? :lol: You say you'll miss him.

"I'm really good at killing people " - B. Hussein Obama

So you, are like Communists and murderers?! Sorry, but I am an American. I love my country. I don't commit murder. Has anyone anything negative to say about me? I don't support murders or Communists. I stand against Obama. I think he should be hung by his own Nobel Peace Prize necklace/medal.

I'm sorry to the liberals, but as a non-affiliate., I love my country. I am anti-Commmunist, and anti 20 Trillion dollars in debt.

At the time Bumbles took over we were 9 trillion dollars in debt.

 

Hypocrite` Welcome to 20 Trillion dollars debt.

Running up that kind of a debt is enough to tell me that he was not a good president. The USA will never recover from that without the 1% squeezing the 99% harder than ever. The president that inherits that debt will be the one to get called inept as they try to correct it, whether it be Trump or someone else.

Well, Obama got Osama bin Laden...which Bush couldn't do in 8 years.

Andy, please stop with the farce you are trying to pull by claiming you are neutral. The majority of your links and youtube clips are from far-right wingnuts or fake news sites or sleaze merchants with porn ads or paranoids like Alex North and his ilk. 

That Obama clip above is clearly faked. Obama didn't divide the country...the division was already there and has been ever since the GOP threw a hissy fit when Clinton beat Bush, Sr.

The ugly element was just emboldened and encouraged to come out and reveal themselves by talk radio rabble-rousers and agitators pissed off that a black man was elected President. Trump has brought that element even more to the open. Yes, good people voted for Trump. But it is also a fact that Trump was openly supported by more white-supremacists and bigots than any Presidential candidate since George Wallace.

The fact that you would blame the division in this country on Obama shows your true colours. You are basically blaming Obama for the fact that bigots couldn't handle having a black man as president and constantly tried to illegitimize his citizenship and presidency with bizarre fantasies...led by Trump himself.

Trump is now getting a taste of his own medicine. The facts of his cabinet appointments speak for themselves. You are just too blind to see that, I guess.

As for Hollywood...one minute you guys are saying the "Jews run Hollywood", the next it's the "gay mafia"...now it's the Chinese. Make up your mind.

Economic growth as a percentage of GDP under Obama is .05% -- the all time low.

...Are you so sure about your statement?  This Country, My Country, the Great United States of America has not been so divided ever since I can remember, since about 1976 (when I was only 5 years old).  You should know better then Me, as you were around and older than I was around this time (this is not a knock on your age, but a real statement). 

Has there ever really been a time in the past 4-8 years where it seems to be okay to kill or plan or attempt to kill American Law Enforcement Officers?  Killing Cops is a Capital Murder Offense, yet there are thousands of Black Lives Matters initiates (and idiots) that advocate the murder of Police in every State. 

Obama either went to or spoke about the deaths of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown before the cases went to court or was exonerated by a jury or and FBI investigation.  Both young black men, but killers nonetheless. 

The now defunct Obama never spoke positively of the Brave, hard-working, loyal and Proud Police Officers that have been killed in the "Line of Duty" by Black men (or white men) as much as he had "defended" African American men that clearly killed White Policemen with "racial" motivations. 

I live in Plano, Texas.  Just last year, there were at least 5 Dallas Policemen that were assassinated in the streets of downtown Dallas, at the hands of a Black man.  Where is the outrage at this slaughter?

Obama is HALF-black (but full retard) and as a by the way it was white voters who voted him into office -- twice.

In nine hours the end of an error. I can't wait. Fire up the steamrollers, boys, we've got some eviscerating to do.

Radical leftists should never be allowed to run a capitalist country.

In my eyes Obama hates the police, hates the military, hates guns, hates Israel and is an anti-semite. The Democrat party is the most anti-freedom party on the planet. Them, Hollywood and the radical left can dish it out, but they can't take it.  Too bad the inauguration isn't on April 20th, then the protester's would be so stoned they'd forget what they were protesting against. :huh:

You sound as naive as Diane Keaton in "The Godfather".

I hope you don't support your Baltimore Ravens or watch any NFL. Because the success of the NFL has been built on communist concepts.

There is plenty of outrage at police being killed. BLM is just a small drop in the bucket...they don't speak for all Americans or even all black people. The media gives them more publicity than they deserve.

Pretty tough talk for a keyboard warrior so afraid of America he lives in Japan. Your persistent use of bogus phrases such as "mom-jeans" and "snowflake" gives you away.

You are just mad that your "Impeach Obama" thread was such a failure...or was that Andy's thread? Sorry guys...no impeachment for Obama or Hillary. Not that you didn't give it the old college try.

Oh no...not another YouTube clip. :rolleyes:

Look, I don't care if it's CNN, Fox, or MSNBC...just because some nattering nabobs say it on TV doesn't make it true. The tv news business is only interested in fear-mongering. Keep Americans fearful and you keep eyeballs glued to the set. Hey America! You should be afraid...and stick with us after the commercial and we will tell you how to survive.

It's a sick game they play.

Study after study has shown that people who get their news and information by reading (books, newspapers, magazines) are better informed and able to understand and discuss issues than people who watch tv news or internet blogs.

I am neutral. I stated on several occasions that I voted for Bubba over Bush, Sr. I was glad to see the GOP get humbled. You have corruption in both the major parties. I'm not even an Independent. I'm unaffiliated. Hollywood black-lists actors that do not fit the democratic mold or promote to vote GOP. Hollywood is supposed to be representative of all people in the US, regardless. They are not. They are owned.

You're right, division has always been there, but the president shouldn't use that to further divide the country. In the past 8 years it, people have gotten more divided, not just by race, but by political party affiliation, as well as religious or ideological affiliation.

God Bless America on this day of the inauguration of our 45th president, Donald J. Trump.  Whether you are a supporter of Trump or not, today he will become President of the United States of America. Why not give him a chance to be successful. Isn't that in everybody's best interest? If you are not willing to give him a chance, if you feel ithe need to criticize him before he has even taken the oath of office, how is that productive. If you are already spewing hate toward him, does that make you any better than the things you proclaim to deplore?  It doesn't make sense.  If he takes office and makes decisions that undermine the safety and strength of our country, that further divide our people, or cause us harm in any way, wouldn't that be the time to criticize?  What purpose does it serve not to give him a chance. 

I am hopeful. For a safe and peaceful inauguration. And for progress in the coming years.

I wish no one to fail. Least of all, the United States of America. Making an honest observation about the make-up of Trump's cabinet choices and his past statements during the campaign is not wishing him to fail. 

The greatness of the Founding Fathers and the U.S. Consitution is on display today. For all the rancor and anger this election stirred up, we still have a peaceful transfer of power. One President steps down and the next takes the oath of office. No blood is spilled.

May the 45th President take that oath to heart.
