Retailers Agree: Trump’s First Christmas is One for the Record Books

543

There are no studies showing whether or not more people are saying “Merry Christmas” with President Trump in office, but we’d have to imagine that – at the very least – many more people are having a merry Christmas with The Donald at the helm.

According to reports from CBS News and the Wall Street Journal, the president is the toast of the town in the retail sector as business celebrate one of their best holiday seasons in recent memory. At long last, the Great Recession has faded into the memory hole, and (whether or not the mainstream media actually wants to give him the credit) there’s no doubt that our new man in the White House has had a little something to do with it.

“Retailers are seeing plenty of green this holiday season,” reports CBS. “And it’s not over yet. Records are falling as sales add up. […] Total retail sales this holiday season added up to a record $598 billion dollars — up $33 billion from last year.”

“This is literally the best season since before the recession,” business owner Craig Johnson told CBS.

How about that.

President Trump’s tax bill won’t be fully implemented for some time and even the slashed regulations won’t trickle down to an economic effect for a while, but the new president is actually excited about the potential of the U.S. economy, and that makes him the polar opposite of the last guy. While Obama spent his eight years in office preaching a message of sacrifice and anti-capitalism – “America is an energy hog, You didn’t build that, etc.” – Trump has brought back to this country the spirit of WINNING that we’ve been missing for so long. That spirit has turned into hard numbers, as evidenced by the surge in the stock market, the rise in consumer confidence, and a Christmas retail season that has business owners jumping for joy.

“Retailers are finally enjoying some Christmas cheer,” reports the Wall St. Journal. “Fueled by high consumer confidence and a robust job market, U.S. retail sales in the holiday period rose at their best pace since 2011, according to Mastercard SpendingPulse, which tracks both online and in-store spending.

“Sales, excluding automobiles, rose 4.9% from Nov. 1 through Christmas Eve, compared with a 3.7% gain in the same period last year, according to the Mastercard Inc. unit, which tracks all forms of payment. E-commerce continued to drive the gains, rising 18.1%.”

Trump’s name is notably absent from both reports (can you imagine how these articles would have been written if Hillary Clinton were in the White House?) but it doesn’t matter. The American people know the truth, even if the media refuses to acknowledge it. We’re seeing the first, juicy fruits of a decision we made last November – one of the best decisions the American electorate ever made. 2018 is shaping up to be something special…that is, if our president can survive the Democrats’ attempts to drag him out of the Oval Office.

    The author of this article is delusional. Trump’s approval rating has consistently been in the low 30s. Many Trump voters are now having buyer’s remorse. “First juicy fruits” of a decision made last Nov? Seems more like a piece of Juicy Fruit stuck to the bottom of America’s shoe. Millions will lose health insurance. And just wait till the tax cuts for the middle class sunset and the GOP uses the deficit this tax “reform” will create as an excuse to cut social security and medicare, programs that WE paid into. Yes, the American people do know the truth, and the media that refuses to acknowledge it is Faux News.

      Well libtard, as usual, you have spewed out all the looney, illogical talking points of the losing party-there are Zero Trump voters regretting electing Pres. Trump, who one by one in his FIRST YEAR of office, is fulfilling his campaign promises as best he can with the obstructionist dems dissing every single thing on his agenda-which by the way, was why We the People, elected him and Crooked Killary LOST- Bigly. Go whine on another site troll.

        1. Mathew Molk says

          Don’t forget them in November, either. They see the writing on the wall and are running for cover and pretending to support the Prez, (Look at the never Trumper Rob the RINO Portman from Ohio. ) True elephants never forget.

      3. Mathew Molk says

        Correct-a-mundo, but there are hordes of people that voted for the cackling witch that are now on the Trump Train….Especially those that are working at their trades and professions for the first time since the royal exalted boma got into the White House.

    2. Bill O'Neil says

      New Gallop poll just out shows Obama the most admired man in America and Hillary Clinton the most admired woman (for 16 straight years now). First time a previous POTUS was the most admired man since Ike. Saw this over on the WGN website.

        So you are Chitcago trash , do you also meet with Rahm at the Bath house . I understand you had a grand time when Obama was back in the city .

        2. Mathew Molk says

          That brings up a good point. Most presidents return to the places they come from. Even Bieden left town,,,,Why is the Half Honky still in DC when he never lived there save his time in our place, on our dime?

          1. Retired says

            To stir the kettle of hate , what else !!!!

      2. Moe says

        News flash most American are aware of the corruption and illegal deeds of Obama, Hal the nation dislikes him. Your polls is a fake as CNN and MSNBC news not to forget the editors at the NYTimes feeding bull crap to their readers daily.

        1. Bill O'Neil says

          You tRumptards really foam at the mouth when faced with facts.

          Obama’s Historically Bad Economy

          The recent release of anemic quarterly economic-growth numbers for 2016 has revived the debate over the Obama economy.

          Sorry, you’ve reached the limit on the articles you can view.

          The recent release of anemic quarterly economic-growth numbers for 2016 has revived the debate over the Obama economy. Some say it has been okay; some say it has been lousy. In truth, the economy under President Barack Obama has been historically bad. How bad? Adjusted for inflation, average yearly GDP growth under President Obama has been less than half of what it was under President Jimmy Carter, 1.5 percent to 3.3 percent.

          According to figures from the U.S. Commerce Department’s Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), the source for all of the figures provided herein, average annual GDP growth in the post-World War II era has been 2.9 percent. By far the worst year in that stretch was the first, when in the immediate aftermath of the war, GDP declined more than four times as much (-11.6 percent) as it has in any year since. From 1947-onward, average annual GDP growth has been 3.2 percent.

          But average annual GDP growth has varied greatly by president, ranging from a high of 5.3 percent under President Lyndon Johnson to a low of 1.5 percent under President Obama, as the following chart conveys:

          Here is the complete list of average annual GDP growth ranked by postwar president (in descending order):

          Johnson (1964-68), 5.3%

          Kennedy (1961-63), 4.3%

          Clinton (1993-2000), 3.9%

          Reagan (1981-88), 3.5%

          Carter (1977-80), 3.3%

          Eisenhower (1953-60), 3.0%

          (Post-WWII average: 2.9%)

          Nixon (1969-74), 2.8%

          Ford (1975-76), 2.6%

          George H. W. Bush (1989-92), 2.3%

          George W. Bush (2001-08), 2.1%

          Truman (1946-52), 1.7%

          Obama (2009-15), 1.5%

          Obama’s last-place tally of 1.5 percent doesn’t even include the BEA’s numbers for 2016, since the year isn’t yet complete. Thus far, growth in 2016 has been 0.8 percent in the first quarter and an estimated 1.2 percent in the second quarter. So Obama will be lucky to finish his presidency at even half the postwar average of 2.9 percent growth.

          Some Obama supporters would no doubt reply that Obama inherited a bad economy from President George W. Bush, and this unfortunate inheritance is bringing down his average. Fair enough. Another way to examine economic success under various presidents is to look at whether the economy has ever really gotten humming on their watch. This can be gauged by looking at their best year of economic growth.

          Indeed, while 1946 (and to some degree 1947) is dragging down President Harry Truman’s overall number, his best year—1950, when real GDP growth was a whopping 8.7 percent—was better than any other postwar president’s best year. President Ronald Reagan’s best year—7.3 percent growth in 1984—was second only to Truman’s. The average best year for a postwar president has been 5.6 percent GDP growth.

          Obama’s best year? 2.6 percent in 2015. That’s so weak that it is beneath the post-WWII average of 2.9 percent. In other words, Obama’s best year of economic growth would have been a below-average year across the past 70 years.

          The following chart shows the best year of real GDP growth under each president since WWII:

          Here is the complete list of the best year of real GDP growth under each postwar president (in descending order):

          Truman (1950), 8.7%

          Reagan (1984), 7.3%

          Eisenhower (1955), 7.1%

          Johnson (1966), 6.6%

          Kennedy (1962), 6.1%

          Nixon (1973), 5.6%

          Carter (1978), 5.6%

          (Average best year for post-WWII presidents: 5.6%)

          Ford (1976), 5.4%

          Clinton (1999), 4.7%

          George W. Bush (2004), 3.8%

          George H. W. Bush (1989), 3.7%

          (Average for all postwar years: 2.9%)

          Obama (2015), 2.6%

          In terms of generating strong economic growth at some point during a given presidency, it is actually advantageous for there to have been poor growth at an earlier point in that presidency (or late in the prior presidency), as growth is usually stronger coming out of a recession than under normal circumstances. Indeed, prior to Obama, every postwar president who experienced a year of GDP decline on his watch (as Obama did in 2009) oversaw annual growth of 4 percent or more within three years or less. In twice as much time (six years), Obama has yet to oversee growth of even two-thirds that amount. (President George H. W. Bush didn’t have three years left in office when the economy declined by 0.1 percent in 1991, but it grew by 3.6 percent in 1992 and by 4 percent two years after that under President Bill Clinton.)

          Among postwar presidents, here is the complete list of how quickly and fully the economy has rebounded after experiencing negative GDP growth:

          Truman: -11.6% growth (surrounded by -1.0% growth—under FDR—and -1.1% growth), followed two years later by 4.2% growth (and two years after that by 8.7% growth); -0.5% growth followed one year later by 8.7% growth;

          Eisenhower: -0.6% growth followed one year later by 7.1% growth; -0.7% growth followed one year later by 6.9% growth;

          Ford: -0.5% growth (under Nixon, and -0.2% growth the subsequent year) followed two years later by 5.4% growth;

          Reagan: -0.2% growth (under Carter) followed three years later by 4.6% growth; -1.9% growth followed two years later by 7.3% growth;

          Clinton: -0.1% growth (under George H. W. Bush) followed three years later by 4.0% growth;

          Obama: -2.8% growth followed by less than 2.7% growth for six straight years

You pathetic morons like socialism and communism so much. There’s more evidence of a Hillary Rotten Clinton colluding with the Russians than there is on Trump. Obviously you haven’t watched any of the Congressional Hearings on this, but then again you’re a mindless liberal drone.

Let’s take a close look at the Democrap party they want a big bloated centralized government, and get rid of most of our Constitutional Freedoms. You see us Constitutional Conservatives believe in The Constitution, and believe in the power of the individual to provide for themselves and the freedom in our lives pursuit of happiness. I know this is hard for a mindless liberal drone, but try to disprove what I’ve said.

    When the tax bill passed some companies said they were giving bonuses and pay raises because of it. So much for what the Democraps said.

        Out spreading hate again .The raises won’t be temporary . Employers are paying more for getting workers and increasing benefits . Don’t you keep up as to what is happening ??? The only ones that can’t find work are the ones that can’t pass the drug or background check .

        1. Will Higgins says

          Yes those bonuses are temporary, look it up.

            My company (at&t) for one.

          6. Will Higgins says

            They are only giving their employees one time bonuses, and laying off a bunch of others.

          7. Dee Mabuhay says

            Layoffs were during the Obama term. There are no layoffs since the start of 2017. If you don’t work for at&t, keep you ignorant mouth shut.

          8. Will Higgins says

            AT&T is laying off people right after a tax cut that was supposed to help create jobs, and companies are still sending jobs over seas.

            I work for at&t and there are no layoffs and I am a member of the union. As I said before, if you don’t work for at&t, keep your ignorant mouth shut. Don’t bother answering this post, as people like you are brain dead.

          12. Dee Mabuhay says

            I know about the news reporting, but, it ain’t happening within at&t. Our dept. was declared surplus in 2009 but, we are still here. There has been layoffs during the Obama years

          13. Will Higgins says

            I now doubt that you work for AT&T?

          14. Frank Taylor says

            Those layoffs have been in their plans for months. The ATT labor agreement was finalized about two weeks prior to tax cut approval. The labor union knew about those layoffs.

            So were the bonuses, but you want to give the tax plain credit for those.

          16. Frank Taylor says

            This is of course about ATT. The labor agreement was over and the CEO said that the bonuses were contingent on the tax plan passing and being signed. is words not mine. Others have followed suit.

          17. Will Higgins says

            That may be what he said, but the facts say they were agreed upon before that.

          18. The Redhawk says

            NOW now Dee .. facts only Get that Will the IDIOT nothing but Wadded Panties…Go easy with Mentally Deficient IDIOTS like him…it is the Humane thing to do…heheheh

          19. Will Higgins says

            I happen to know AT&T is laying off a bunch of people next year. And Sinclair is right-wing propaganda, of course they do what ever they can to make the bill look good.

          20. Retired says

            There is also something in the works of buying and to complete the deal the work force needs to be reduced .It happens all the time before and after mergers . But you bright boys do not follow that .

          21. Will Higgins says

            And you can’t follow that tax cuts are not the holy grail Republicans tout it as.

          22. Retired says

            You are pathetic like the media .

          25. Will Higgins says

            The segment I linked was spot on.

          26. Retired says

            So you have a copy of the bill and read the whole thing , just like the media people ???? They pick out a part and that is all they know .You are a guppy and won’t know the real facts until you file next years tax .

          27. Will Higgins says

            Nothing I heard about this bill, even from people who support it, makes me think this bill is good.

          28. Retired says

            So you finally admit not having facts other than Media BS .

          29. Will Higgins says

            No, I’ve heard all different sources.

          30. Retired says

            You just can NOT bring yourself to admit that you know nothing about the Bill other than what the left wing media told you .GUPPY ..Sources are not the same as reading the bill .Even many of the elected never read the bill .

          31. Will Higgins says

            Actually, Bill Clinton accusers have gotten more attention recently.

            No one “gives” me anything.
            I am a retired surgeon. I was a self-employed professional.
            I paid those who worked with me very well.

          38. AKLady says

            The wage increases are also, you see they have to do with year-end overtime.

          39. bill sexton says

            What are you besides a total idiot Will Higgins? bonuses are a one time bonus. You think no one knows that? cheeze, what a low class, uneducated, Liberal, Hillary Obama loving moron.

          55. The Redhawk says

            Bonuses are an annual Event based on PROFITABILITY ( in the REAL WORLD that is) ….There were Few or NONE under the last 8 Years unless you worked in the DEEP State of Obama ( IRS) comes to mind…. you nut hatch

          56. Will Higgins says

            What do you say to all the people who got bonuses over the last eight years?

          57. Retired says

            Those were the Bankers that should have gone to prison instead of getting a bonus . Clinton and Bush protected them along with the leaders of Freddie and Fanny .They knew the 2008 was coming and if Hillary or Sanders would have gotten in there would have been another financial crunch with Sallie that was formed in the 90s protecting student loans ,which is sitting at 1.5 Trillion Dollars debt. All on the expense of the tax payer run by the same crocks .

          58. Will Higgins says

            No, the blue collar workers who got bonuses?

          59. Retired says

            Blue collar got Shit on by Obama and Bankers walked free from their crimes just like the leaders of the Mortgage industry selling bad loans that the Tax Payer had to eat .

          60. Will Higgins says

            You know Trump made a lot of money from the mortgage crisis himself.
            And while you’re all flipping out over bonuses. Banker, big businesses, and billionaires are getting everything else.

          61. Retired says

            Tell us bright boy , how did Trump make money from the mortgages crisis . Was he lending Gov. backed loans ?????

          62. Retired says

            So you are also a warren Sucker , evidently you do not know about the risk involved in buying foreclosed property .

          63. Will Higgins says

            Warren is the second most popular politicians in the country.
            And Trump is a greedy a**hole.

          64. Retired says

            The only ones supporting her are the Pussy Hat Group , so that means you are a member as well . She is as sick as Pelosi – Sanders – Feinstein and Schumer .

          65. Will Higgins says

            Second most well liked politician, remember.

          66. The Redhawk says

            OH yes….SECONDS NEVE WIN //

          67. Will Higgins says

            Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician.

          68. The Redhawk says

            Some Polls only poll Coastals and STUPID Tree Huggers….SO?

          69. Will Higgins says

            Like Fox News?

          70. Frank Taylor says

            Sanders wife could go to prison for fraudulent loan when she was a college president. Sanders is only popular with left leaning Democrats.

          71. Will Higgins says

            That thing with Sanders wife was a witch hunt. He the most popular politician in America right now.

          72. Frank Taylor says

            I kind of do not care about Sanders or his wife. He could not win in a national contest. Too far left. His wife was President of a college and secured a loan backed by contributions to the college. She badly overstated the commitments for those contributions. The college went bankrupt and is no longer ins business.

          73. Will Higgins says

            A lot of colleges have went under.
            Even Trump acknowledges that Sanders could have beaten. The label of ‘the left’ is mainly used to demonize critics of conseratives takes on social issues. Sander was better know for him economic opinions. His veiw’s on tread overlap with Trump’s a lot, so Sander would have likely won more Rust Bealt voters, costing Trump states like Wisconsin and Michigan, and well as all the Democratic voters who just didn’t want to vote for Hilary.

          74. Frank Taylor says

            Sanders for one thing could not have beaten Trump. He could not even beat Clinton in the primaries. That guy is so far left, he is in danger of falling off that cliff to his left. I do grant that the support he had was more solid than what Clinton had, but it also was limited to those who shared his leftist beliefs, which most Americans do not support. I can only point out that he is around 80 years of age and in next election will be 3 years older. I do not expect him to even run. No one can objectively say what would have happened, but we can say that Trump won.

          75. Will Higgins says

            Again, you can say that ‘he to left all you want’ but the fact a lot of people who voted for Trump say they would have voted for Sanders has he been on the ballot, plus a lot of his supporters who voted for third party Candidates, and all the Democratic voter who stayed home because they didn’t like Clinton.

          76. Frank Taylor says

            Explain to me how you could possibly confirm any of what you just said. When push comes to shove, none of that is worth one dime. Sanders did not run against Trump, thus none of the skeletons in his closet came out. Before this election, did you even know who he was?

          77. Frank Taylor says

            he is still the same far left socialist that he has been all of his life. what is this deal with your being so caught up in a what if-hypothetical make believe match up between Sanders and Trump. that guy is just one pollster and I do not put a lot of stock in polls, they are wrong more often than they are right. Additionally this is just one persons opinion about something that did not happen. Only God know what that result might have been. It did not happen so find something to talk about that matters.

          78. Will Higgins says

            It matter because Trump supporters think they can just support anyone they like and that makes them winners. Roy Moore ran a Trump like campaign and lost, a G.O.P. Gubernatorial candidate ran a Trump like campaign and lost, and Trump may be the hardest president to re-elect in decades. If Sanders is that popular, then his ideology may be worth looking at?

          79. Frank Taylor says

            Sanders is a socialist and every position he takes or program he pushes is just one more step towards his goal of socialism. We will know in three years how hard it was for Trump to win a second term.

          80. Frank Taylor says

            Moore lost due to the allegations and saw a double digit lead dwindle to a single digit loss. The Democrat wins in both Virginia and New jersey were expected. Both lean to democrats, with New Jersey being very liberal.

          81. Will Higgins says

            They are examples of Trump unpopularity.

          82. Frank Taylor says

            Trump lost both of those states and spent no time working for the Republican candidate in either state. any person with knowledge of the political climate in either Virginia or New Jersey expected exactly what happened/ I never expected a Republican upset in either state and neither did Trump or any other high level Republican.

          83. Will Higgins says

            You’re just making excuses.

          84. Mark Clemens says

            Hillary’s cheating held Sanders back. Him and Trump had identical trade policies. By the way, since the election Trump hasn’t done or said squat about tariffs………….

          85. Will Higgins says

            That’s what I was saying!

          86. The Redhawk says

            SO you (D)PARTY NAZIS continue to Follow LIARS…and LOSE…GO FOR IT MORON!

          91. Will Higgins says

            Like the AT&T employees who are getting laid off under Trump?

          92. Frank Taylor says

            Those layoffs were in the making and were part of the labor agreement.

          93. The Redhawk says

            I fear that Will h is losing his grip on reality once more…may be a recall is in order???

          94. Retired says

            Highly doubtful he ever had a grip on reality . Recall to the nearest dumpster would be in order . Trash thinking belongs on the trash pile .

            Quit working for the GUMNIT and see what Obama Economic Failures can have done for you…PINK SLIPS and NO Bonuses but Food Stamps, free phones and Welfare…That what you mean???

          97. AKLady says

            Most places I was employed, bonuses were awarded based on productivity.
            In the military, they are based on time in grade.

            Nobody that works in a call center is paid enough to be insulted. However if you hang up on a customer here in the U.S. you are fired. They are paid to promote customer satisfaction. If your customers are English speaking, then you should be able to speak English that English speaking people can understand.

          5. AKLady says

            I have never worked for an employer who required their employees to allow themselves to be abused. The majority of employers offering telephone provided services make a habit of recording calls, even if only randomly. The product is, for thw moat part, Asian made. If you by “foreign” products, expect to deal with foreign support services.

          6. Carol says

            Well being a Dr. lawyer, and Indian Chief, I don’t imagine you have worked in a call center. So let me understand your reasoning. Asian call centers can only help Asian speaking people although people all over the world buy their products. How do you suppose that works? Many years ago I worked for the cable company. When people called in that didn’t speak English, we transferred them to someone who spoke their language. Why? Because they were customers. We didn’t hang up, that would’ve been completely wrong. Plus we would have been fired. Rule number one: thou shall not hang up!

          7. AKLady says

            You make many assumptions.
            You also sound like the older generation: ‘Back in my day…’
            What does your remark have to do with the employees having to tolerate being verbally abused?

          8. Carol says

            I am older, I’m retired. How is asking to speak to someone that speaks English abuse? Are you a snowflake? Every request is abuse, every comment is an attack. Thin skinned! Plus you can’t answer a simple question. What am I making assumptions about? What is wrong about being older? Do you have parents and grandparents? Do you discount them because they are older? Is everyone suppose to die once past 35?

          9. AKLady says

            You may be “older” and “retired” but that is no excuse for rudeness.
            If you by “foreign” products, expect to deal with foreign support services.
            If you want an American support staff, buy American.

          10. Carol says

            I was never rude. Wasn’t even the same scenario I was referring to. You just argue for the sake of arguing. Btw, I will gladly buy American made things once America starts making things to buy again.

        5. BBB says

          Could not agree with you more. There are help wanted signs everywhere. I see at least 3 or 4 job offers on my email daily. The jobs are there but you have to test drug free. You should also have to test that way to get welfare or food stamps or card. That would force at least some to clean up their act. I’ m tired of paying for these losers. There is help out there. Take advantage of it. No reason not to except selfish stupidity

          1. AKLady says

            Those signs will go away just as soon as the Chrisman returns end.

        6. Nellie McConnell says

          My area! Many people can’t find work because the company is hiring illegals and paying cash. No taxes paid. Many of these are illegals or prisnors that Obama released. Not SAFE unless you know contractor. CA, Governor Brown gives jobs to Dreamers, company and Dreamers pay NO taxes. Dreamers are probably free Obamacare. The Liberals securing votes. Deport all ILLEGALS and vett everyone that came in under Clinton’s and Obama. Go TRUMP

          1. Retired says

            Some of that goes on all over , but most that can NOT find jobs fail the Drug and background check . then the other group are people close to 60 years old that lost their job.

      2. Teresa says

        All bonuses are usually temporary. They are given out when a Company has done well in generating revenue or performance in their respective fiscal year. Employees who work on a “commission” usually see a “bonus” at the end of the year, if performance merits a bonus. As a small, woman owned business. I was able to give a bonus to all our employees due to the surge and growth in our business this year.

        1. Will Higgins says

          It has nothing to do with the tax plain though.

          1. Frank Taylor says

            Bonuses could be granted by companies that had a good year as a thank you to hard working employees. It could also happen due to the forthcoming tax savings. What really matters is that there will be a few extra dollars for taxpayers and workers to spend.

          2. Will Higgins says

            These bonuses were already in place before the tax plain though.

          3. Frank Taylor says

            how could you possibly know or even say that. Let’s talk about ATT. Their labor agreement with the union had been settled without the bonuses. This came well after that and the CEO himself said that he was doing this due to tax cut. You clearly want it to fail and if that happens our country suffers. If it succeeds, our country wins. Which way do you want it?

      3. dtsing2 says

        LOL that is what a bonus is. A one-time BONUS. One doesn’t expect to get it again.

        1. Will Higgins says

          And they have nothing to do with the tax plan.

          1. dtsing2 says

            They have said that they are giving bonuses in anticipation of making more money because of the tax plan. It wouldn’t make sense to give a raise before they know that they indeed are saving money. LOL A raise might end up in the business going under.Cant guarantee money that one doesn’t have. Well, they can but…

          2. Will Higgins says

            If they’re just trying to make the tax plain look good, it might just be this one time?

          5. dtsing2 says

            And if the tax plan IS good, then it may become more than one time. I worked in education for 24 years. I retired 2 years ago and hadn’t received a raise in 6. It will be interesting to see if they give a raise next school year.

          6. Will Higgins says

            Doubtful.

          7. BBB says

            During the Obama’s 8 years companies couldn’t even afford to give a bonus. This year companies have done well since Pres Trump has been in office. They announced the bonus being paid out and also some raises were announced because some employees have worked for years with out a raise. If they have a good year as they expect they’ll be able to do something next year. Why do you libtards always find fault with any and everything Trump does. Face it you lost and it’s time people turn in their free phones and pick up an employment application and an alarm clock because the jobs are out there and they weren’t there for the past 8 years. Things have gotten better all around.

          8. Will Higgins says

            People have been getting bonuses the last eight years!

          17. Frank Taylor says

            Business employees get bouses when the business does well. government employees , such as those in VA and IRS got huge bonuses for screwing over veterans and targeting the teaparty. Lerner got a whopping $75,000 and the director of IRS got a cool hundred grand. I can see some incentive for reducing expenditures of a department, but have no idea why those two got bonuse plus so many more.

          18. Retired says

            In plain English it is hush money to not talk and cover each others butt .The IRS and VA need a house Cleaning from the top down . Postal service is the same . They move the bad apples to another location instead of firing them .

          19. Frank Taylor says

            In the VA, records were falsified and some got caught, but kept their jobs, and were simply moved into a different job. Irs was caught targeting teaparty and no one was fired or charged with crime. In ATF, we have fast and furious gun running with thousands of weapons. No one went to jail or even lost their jobs.

          20. Michael Dennewitz says

            HA! The VA is now hiring mooseslime drs and rns.. I’m a Vietnam vet and I’m now being treated like shit because I refused to be examined by a mooseslime dr… ☹😢

          21. Retired says

            Even some of our weapons were found in the Hands of ISIS and I am not talking about what the US had left behind and they found .

          22. Frank Taylor says

            Thousands were passed through to the Mexican drug cartels, I think a couple have been found at crime scenes and were part of those thousands. SOME atf people were shifted around into other jobs, but this had to be illegal and no charges were filed. the excuse seems to be that they simply lost track. These sales happened at different times and different locations. Were the ATF agents involved so incompetent that they did not physically follow those who purchase. The weapons could easily have had a simple tracking devise like cars now have. should never have been allowed.

          23. Will Higgins says

            What ‘Kook Aid’ is Obama serving again?

          24. Retired says

          38. Will Higgins says

            Obama’s ego was WAY less fragile.

          39. Frank Taylor says

            Trump says what is on his mind and hides nothing. With Obama you could only guess what he really thought or believed. Trump stands up for himself. He talks about fake news and lo and behold, someone comes through and proves he is right on the mark.

          40. Will Higgins says

            Who has proven Trump right?

          41. Frank Taylor says

            One member of the Media misled on the email that offered access to the Wiki leaks DNC leaks. The emails were public several days before the offer was sent. The media made it appear that the offer came before the leaks. Then we have the disclosure that Trump instructed Flynn to open communications with Russia. The media reported it happened during the campaign, but it happend after the election and during the campaign. They take true information and twist it to send a completely different message.

          42. Will Higgins says

            What about all the stuff with Papadopoulos then?

          43. Frank Taylor says

            Do you know anything about this guy, He was an unpaid volunteer who was trying to move up by making that contact. No one accepted what he was offering. He is charged with lying to FBI and was not a key player in the Trump campaign. This is even less than a nothing burger.

          44. Will Higgins says

            Trump is the only one saying he was unimportant. I am not buying it.

          45. Frank Taylor says

            he tried to broker dirt on Clinton, which never happened. He was not paid and that is a fact. he was indicted for lying and was not part of transition team. You do not buy anything not coming from Obama or Clinton or some other liberal. the young man was indicted for lying to FBI , which happens to be same charge made against Flynn. big nothing burger You clearly will believe anything anti-Trump even when there is no evidence to support. When you really get down to the part he played in campaign, it was minimal and he really broke no law other than lying to FBI. The Trump dossier is referred to as opposition research, despite The collusion between Steele and some persons inside Russia for the refuted information. Could this by the young man be called opposition research since it centered around dirt on Clinton.

          46. Will Higgins says

            It could meant that Trump reached out to Russia, which would be collusion?

        1. Will Higgins says

          Republicans wrote the tax plain all by themselves.

          1. Frank Taylor says

            /every democrat was against any tax cuts. Great Christmas gift to our country. Unfortunately for the Democrats, they voted against and the voters next year will know that when they vote.

          2. Will Higgins says

            This tax plan is not that popular, the Democrats are not worried a about repercussions from the vote on them.

          3. Frank Taylor says

            The law has not taken effect yet. I can assure you that it will work and when Taxpayers see the extra money, it will become popular. Taxpayers vote and if the bill is successful, the democrats have a lot to worry about. They will be seen as having voted against taxpayers getting extra take home pay. Senator Manchin has already changed his mind on what his constituents will see. 85% of taxpayers are projected to see their take home pay go up. People are somewhat selfish and will vote their pocketbook.

          4. Will Higgins says

            Safe to say the voters will be looking at Trump, not their taxes during elections.

          5. Frank Taylor says

            I hope the democrats do try to run against Trump . Right now his approvals are in the 40s, in the Senate more than thirty total seats are up for reelection. Democrats must defend far more seats than Republicans. Democrats defend 26 seats and 10 of those are in state that Trump won by double digits.

          6. Will Higgins says

            Trump approval is only in the thirties, and his disapproval is in the fifties.
            People say they would rather have Democrats in Congress now.

          7. Frank Taylor says

            it all comes down to who did the polling. Fox has it at 47% and CNN has it at low 34. It likely is in low 40 %. Trump is abrupt and has nearly anyone who is a democrat disapproving so we likely will not see it get much above 50% even if his specific job approval might be higher, 60% plus have favorable views of economy. That is highest in two decades and well above anything Obama saw.

          8. Will Higgins says

            CNN uses Gallup as it’s main source.
            This article might put thing in perspective. http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/29/politics/donald-trump-approval-rating/index.html

          9. Frank Taylor says

            His rating with gallup is 38% With Fox it is at 47% so likely 43% is about right, Liberals like you will never approve,no matter what he does. You are far too young to lock yourself into the liberal camp Look at facts and the situation for yourself. Use your head for something more than a hat rack. Forget which party is in and judge actual actions.

          10. Will Higgins says

            People don’t call Fox News ‘state media’ for nothing.
            CNN may not be perfect, but they not as bias as Fox News. Regardless of what they you may think, they show more respect to conservative to conservatives then Fox News dose to liberals.
            I’m fairly critical of the Democrats, but I still support most of what they do.

          11. Frank Taylor says

            Well when asked which party with generic candidates, the two parties are virtually tied, with Democrats 1% more. When the current person in office is included, they favor reelection, so wording is ultra important . Some democrats are in safe districts and some republicans are. If economy is strong, it will favor Republicans, but this is also an off year for elections, and the party not in party usually gains seats.

          12. Will Higgins says

            You know the economy was good in 2010 to?
            I’ve already read a lot articles about this.

          13. Frank Taylor says

            the approval rating for Obama fluctuated from low 40% to low 50% for most of his presidency. For some reason it went up somewhat during his last year. I expect the elections next year will likely keep close to the current numbers.

          14. Will Higgins says

            And Trump is in the thirties.
            If 2018 goes like most mid-terms, in Democrats will do well for them selves.

          15. Frank Taylor says

            or 40% depending on what polls you look at. During Mid terms the party of the President tends to lose seats. The situation in Senate with Democrats defending three times as many seats could be an exception. A strong economy and a successful tax cut could move that in favor of Republicans. Next November will tell us how voters looked at 2017 and 2018.

          16. Will Higgins says

            Again, the economy was doing good in 2010.

          17. Frank Taylor says

            Yes and in 2017, it was great! We saw 3% GDP and 28% DOW increase, more than 5000 point surge. In all 8 years of Obama it averaged about1000 points per year.

          18. Will Higgins says

            If the economy was all that mattered, Trump would have a higher approval rating.

          19. Frank Taylor says

            At some point it will be quite clear that Trump played a huge part in the strong economy and the tax cuts will hit and taxpayers will see bigger take home checks. I do admit that liberal like you will never credit Trump with this. On the other hand, if it was negative, You would be shouting to the heavens that it was Trump’s fault. liberals are about 35% of population so those will never favor Trump. The moderates are waiting to see if economy holds and tax cuts work. November 2018 is eleven months away. Voters are a whole lot smarter than you seem willing to give them credit for.

          20. Will Higgins says

            I think a smart voter could do the research and see Trump is not solely responsible for the economy.

          21. Frank Taylor says

            The voters are smart and will give Trump credit for what he did. He rolled back anti-business federal regulations. The federal register is a whole lot thinner now than it was one year ago. he pushed through the tax cut and the economy is fantastic in every area. Trump gets credit , but the change is due to how those buying stocks reacted and how consumers reacted. Retail sales in December were way up. Voters are not blind and all of that benefits them directly or indirectly.

          22. Will Higgins says

            You keep acting like some small tax cuts to working class people is all that is needed for people to like Trump.

          23. Frank Taylor says

            With Democrats or liberals like you, some will never like him. Others may if they like some of his other campaign promises, strong economy, tax cuts, new jobs and better wages. Yes i think some will come around.

          24. Will Higgins says

            I’m tired of conservatives acting like mislikeing Trump is irradiation.

          25. Frank Taylor says

            Liberals like you tend to make it personal. Look at his agenda and his campaign promises and keep it objective. I do know if a Democrat was in office now and doing the things Trump has done, you and your other like thinkers would be praising him./ Kathy Griffin held up something that looked a bit like trump and was a severed head. She seemed to think it was funny at the time. I find it to be gross and lacking any humor at all. Actions have consequences. and even her liberal friends thought that to be way over the line and that was an indication of a cruel and despicable humna being, who got what she deserved. It hit her where it hurts most , in the pocket book.

          26. Will Higgins says

            Conservatives always act like critic of Trump is a personal insult.

          27. Frank Taylor says

            Not liking what Trump has done is ok if you are a democrat, but much of the criticism is directed at Trump personally and not at the Trump agenda. Talking about his hair and hands and so many other things have no connection to his success at putting his agenda into action.

          28. Will Higgins says

            I don’t like that he put businesses ahead of people, and his foreign policy is isolating the U.S..

          29. Frank Taylor says

            His foreign policies do put our interest ahead of the interest of other countries. What is wrong with that? We still deal with others and in NATO , mutual defense is strong. He is pro business, but not at the expense of our citizens. He has chastised a number of business for outsourcing jobs. He has called their hand on that, and they hate bad publicity so we will likely see that trend end if not reversed. I say our citizens interest should always come ahead of those who live in other countries. I expect other countries to also put their people ahead of those who live here. just common sense. trump has called the hand of other countries and it probably makes them uncomfortable. They have taken us for granted for too many decades.

          30. Will Higgins says

            Trump is a outsourcer himself, and some countries are still doing it.
            The E.U. has been looking into building it’s defense force that could make America defense add less needed.
            No matter how many people keep talking about bonuses the tax plain just doesn’t seem made for workers.

          31. Frank Taylor says

            Merkel has failed to even form a ruling government in Germany. How the heck do you expect her to now take over defending germany from us. The workers benefit just as most taxpayers benefit. Even your father if he is working will likely see more take home pay.

          32. Will Higgins says

            The E.U. doesn’t live or die with Merkel.
            Working class tax benefits are smaller and temporary.

          33. Frank Taylor says

            eight years from now is a long way off. No one will get rich from the tax cuts, but i think that the 85% who save will like what they get.

          34. Will Higgins says

            What people may notice is the increase of the wealth gap.

          35. Frank Taylor says

            If you are not working , Your pay check can not increase due to lack of paycheck. The tax cuts only affect those who are worker, so clearly it is designed to benefit the estimated 85% of workers. some will see little or no change in take home pay. Each person can judge for themselves how much they save in tax when they get that first check in February. I doubt anyone will turn those new dollars down.

          36. Will Higgins says

            It doesn’t sound like there will be to many dollars to turn down?

          37. Frank Taylor says

            When things are going so well in this great country, it is really hard for a liberal to find an issue to criticize. they and you then fall back to personal attacks.

          38. Will Higgins says

            It’s really not that hard.
            People are worried about nukes, and another war in the Middle East.

          39. Frank Taylor says

            this normally would favor Democrats, since it is an off year election and turn out will be down from last year. In the Senate 26 seats held by Democrats come up and 10 of those are in states won by Trump with double digits wins. Only 9 seats currently held by Republicans are up for election. six are fairly safe and Flake in Arizona is not running for reelection. They could lose two or three of those nine, but could win at least that many of the 10 states Trump won. I predict a wash in the Senate. The House is a lot harder since only voters in the House districts vote and voters tend to reelect incumbents. Democrats could gain seats, depending on how voters feel about the economy and the tax cuts, once they hit.

          40. Will Higgins says

            How many of those districts Trump won still like him? He only got as many votes as he did because of Clinton. You know what was a safe Senate seat?…Arizona.
            And the economy was doing good in 2010 to.

          41. Frank Taylor says

            During his 8 years, Obama had a grand total of 8 quarters with GDP over 3%. Trump already has three in one year. Every single economic indicator is strong. There are about 16 of the 26 Democrat Senate seats that are considered fairly safe. about six of the nine held by Republicans are safe.

          42. Will Higgins says

            Again, the party of the current President that is usually at a disadvantage.

          43. Frank Taylor says

            The party in the Whitehouse seems to lose seats in midterm elections. The seats in Senate up for grabs tend to run against that norm. Democrats defend 26 seats and 10 of those are in states that Trump won by double digits. Republicans defend only 9 seats. That gives the Democrats a huge hill to climb.

          44. Will Higgins says

            Democrats flipped the New Jersey governorship, the virginia legislature, and a Alabama Senate seat, they are doing something right.

          45. Frank Taylor says

            1. New jersey is very liberal and Chris Christie had lost popularity. a change there is no surprise. Clinton won New Jersey.
            2/ Republicans control legislatures in about 30 of the fifty states, so a loss in Virginia is no surprise. I
            3/ Jones is the new Alabama senator but the change is more due to Moore losing it than it is to JOnes winning. The accusations caused that change, not Jones campaign. In 2020, it will revert back to Republicans.

          46. Will Higgins says

            The President’s party tends to lose down ballot elections, so expect to see less Republican governors, and legislatures.

          47. Frank Taylor says

            That is a state by state deal. Most states are Republican and Trump did carry 32 states.

          48. Will Higgins says

            Trump approval rating has gone down in every state.

          49. Frank Taylor says

            None of those polling do a state by state poll. It is national only. You should remember that the next presidential election is nearly three years away and any poll now is a wasted effort.

          50. Will Higgins says

            No, some of them are state by state. Even states that still like him like just a little less.
            But just be keep thing honest, Trump approval has gotten up to 40% first the first time since September.

          51. Frank Taylor says

            The first two were expected, and I also expected the double digit lead Moore had to vanish when those accusations emerged just thirty days before the election. Innocence is hard to prove,

          52. Will Higgins says

            Even Republican acknowledge that Democrats did good the last couple of elections.

          53. Frank Taylor says

            Next election, Alabama will be a Republican seat again. The accusations destroyed Moores campaign. At end of 2010 GDP was below 3% and Unemployment was double digits. Fox had Moore down by nearly 10% in polls he lost by around 3%.

          54. Will Higgins says

            That Alabama seat is up for re-election in 2020, a election year, which will mean Democrats will turn out, especially since Trump will be up for re-election. How many seats did Democrats win back when Obama was up for re-election?

          55. Frank Taylor says

            not nearly as many as you seem to think. Democrats controlled the Senate both before and after the 2012 election. They gained a net of two seats to end up with 53 seats. In the House the Republicans had control both before and after the 2012 election and ending up losing about 8 seats. Those are by the way verifiable facts.

          56. Will Higgins says

            Republican only have a one seat majority after Moore lost, so the Senate is definitely in play.

          57. Frank Taylor says

            The house is very localized, so I expect to lose some there, but still retain control. Trump does have veto power even if we lose both houses. I will remind you of the make up of the seats in the senate that up up for a vote in 2018/ Keep in mind that of the 35 seats, only nine are Republican and 26 are now held by Democrats, and ten of those are in states won by double digit margins by Trump. Six of the nine Republican seats are in strong Republican states, so three could turn, but at the same time, the Democrats could lose some if not all of those ten in Republican states. It could happen, but the democrats are facing an uphill battle to turn the senate. Return to the real world, will Dreaming just does not always work.

          58. Will Higgins says

            I’m just saying what analyzists have said.

          59. Frank Taylor says

            IF THE

          60. Will Higgins says

            Republicans sure seem to be acting worried?

          61. Frank Taylor says

            not taking those seats for granted is the right approach. Overconfidence is a losing idea. look at what that did for Clinton. Campaign on the tax cut and the economy will result in success for the Republicans. Keep to the issues and let the Democrats run against Trump with no agenda and they will lose. You have to offer something to voters that will help the country to win elections.

          62. Will Higgins says

            Actually, Republicans are planning on putting Pelosi at the center of things (probably not that wise since she has her own primary challenge). Maybe they know that small working class tax cuts, and for some tax hicks won’t fly that great, and the economy probably won’t preform as well next year.

          63. Frank Taylor says

            The district that pelosi represents is very liberal. Despite her age and some other problems, no Democrat or Republican can defeat her in that district if she chooses to run. She is minority leader in the House, so in that way she represents the Democrat party. As for the economy and tax cut, both are good and 85% will take home more money. Matching 2017 for improvement in the economy will be hard, due to how good 2017 was. I do expect GDP to climb above 4%, which is just a little better. I also expect to see more jobs added in this first quarter than we saw in last quarter of 2017. You seem to hope it gets better, but you will be highly disappointed when you see another year of a strong economy.

          64. Will Higgins says

            I suggest you look into Pelosi’s challenger? He a lawyer who represents employees in causes against employers. He’s also a big Sanders fan, and had gotten some attention.

          65. Frank Taylor says

            I could not care less. Any Sanders supporter favors socialism and any Pelosi supporter is a far left liberal. The end result is more of the same there, no matter who wins.

          66. Will Higgins says

            I means losing a bogeyman if Pelosi wins for Republicans?

          67. BBB says

            It’s very popular. Maybe not in you little corner but it’s very popular. The people that don’t like it have listened to the Pelosi, Shummer groupies that listened to her call it Armageddon, as Shummer said a lot of people will died. Come on what theatrics. The liberals won’t give him any credit. Even Commie Bernie broke down and said there will be a lot of people helped by this tax plan.

          68. The Redhawk says

            GREAT THING that they dId… It will add Senate Seats in 2018 and the DUMMIECRAPS will EAT all the Negatives they LIED ABOUT as of FEB 2018 ….cry ON DUFUS!

          69. Will Higgins says

            When was the last time the President’s party won more seats?

          70. The Redhawk says

            Well NOT in 2010 nor 2012 …But then “O” VOMIT was the PU$$Y pretending to be a POTUS

          71. Will Higgins says

            He was more liked then Trump.

          72. The Redhawk says

            SO being LIKED like Snake Charmers like Snakes and Uneducated Morons like you like LOSING….yes he was liked by Bi Coastals and “great Society” Welfare trolls BUT LOST SENATE AND HOUSE…GIT IT??? The REAL Americans Voted HIm out even Clinton LOST because of the PU$$Y’s Incompetence!!

          73. Will Higgins says

            What are you gonna say when the ‘real Americans’ don’t re-elect him.

          74. The Redhawk says

            NOW you really LOST IT.. Back to DRUGS moron…YOU are NOT a rEAL American .. just a Maggot like “O” vomit Impersonating an EMPTY suit…..GET with it!!

          75. Will Higgins says

            Trump has even lost support in Republican states.

          76. Frank Taylor says

            I guess you think that only Democrats are real Americans. Reality check. Republicans and independents are also real Americans and they also vote. You would vote for the traitor Manning if he or she ran against Trump.

          77. Will Higgins says

            Republicans are the one only their supporters are ‘real Americans’.

          78. Frank Taylor says

            Stick with issues will. What liberals say or what conservatives say should always be taken with a grain of salt.

          79. Will Higgins says

            So, that article I read to from Ben Saphiro about how the whole LGBT 🏳️‍🌈 movement is built on lies then?

          80. The Redhawk says

            So are Maggots.like “O” Zero by some “folks” ..You just have to ask the RIGHT Questions to INTELLIGENT folks…No Not your KIND!

          81. Will Higgins says

            Like polling questions that don’t offer a negative answer about Trump?

          82. Frank Taylor says

            The young man finally got something right. The plan was written by and approved by only Republicans.

          83. Will Higgins says

            That’s not a good thing. They shut Democrats out of it.

          84. Frank Taylor says

            they tried to bring Democrats in, but no one crossed over or made on suggestion on the bill. Democrats shut Republicans out with obamacare.

          85. Will Higgins says

            The Democrats put more thought into Obamacare, and the Republicans did help write parts of it.

          86. Frank Taylor says

            When you look at final obamacare product, you see a partisan product that failed badly. It passed on partisan vote.

          87. Will Higgins says

            At least it could pass, unlike anything the Republicans have proposed.

          88. Frank Taylor says

            The Republicans as part of tax bill ended the individual mandate, which is huge and could well sound the death knoll for what remains.

          89. Will Higgins says

            Which could lead to a lot of people without healthcare, like my parents.

          90. Frank Taylor says

            That could happen. I have no knowledge of whether they buy through an exchange or through an employer. Rates could rise when some young and healthy drop coverage, voluntarily. Rates will likely go up, but rates are already set for this year.

          91. Will Higgins says

            I would like my parents to be around a few more years.

          92. Frank Taylor says

            I am sure they will be and they will get medical care if needed with or without Obamacare.

          93. Will Higgins says

            They old and need a good amount of medical care, they ar not the kind of people insurance companies sprint to cover.

          94. Frank Taylor says

            They will still be able to get health care in 2019, even if Obamacare dies.

        2. Retired says

      6. Frank Taylor says

        Real dollars that will be spent and the new jobs and salary increases will follow and already have in some companies.

        1. Will Higgins says

          New jobs are a far cry from one time bonuses.

          1. Frank Taylor says

            Bonuses may or may not be one time. Take all of the bonuses so far and the effect on our economy will be great. We are at or about a $billion so far inbonuses. One company raised their lowest wage to $15 per hour. In six months, we can look again and see who else is on board with new jobs, pay increases, and more. I love it!

          2. Will Higgins says

            In six months no body will be thinking about the tax plain, so they won’t need any more publicity stunts?

    2. AKLady says

      They were also paid to the upper management, not the ‘peons’.

      1. Dee Mabuhay says

      2. dtsing2 says

        Where are you getting your information? Locally, Virginia, I heard on call-in talk radio, a small business owner is going to pay the insurance premiums for his employees next year. Another call-in said that they were giving $1000 bonuses to ALL of their employees. I guess you could be accurate if they only employ upper management. LOL

        1. AKLady says

          You “heard” …

          1. dtsing2 says

Once we vote out the RINOs and naysayers from congress, and President Trump continues to drain the rest of the swamp we will have become great again.

    1. Mathew Molk says

      I agree, And all we need to do is rid ourselves of the RINOs and it will be smooth sailing in DC. The NWO Marxists will be powerless against us.

            Will can read, but his comprehension is zilch.

            Will is pissed off because there are no pictures in the article……

      The man in the Whitehouse is not a President, he is a would-be dictator.
      He id also a law breaker and cheat.
      He is the most dishonest man to ever have been elected.
      He is also a legally-documented racist.

            I am not the one doing the name calling nor am I confused. You can call whatever you want a fact but it doesn’t make it so. You are absolutely correct, YOU are not entitled to make up fake facts. Really, you just spout so much hot air. Put it to rest, your blathering is getting tiresome. Yawn…

      best retail sales for quite some time. Add that to the other factors, and Trump must be doing something right.

  7. Mathew Molk says

    Drag him out of office? It was impossible before but now ????? Like Festus Hagen on Gun Smoke said when they wanted to toss him out of the court room before testifying about a bunch of orphans….”Well now that there is just liable to take you the rest of today and the best part of tomorrow”

    They lost We won, and even CNN is starting to get the message.

    MAGA, Join us or get run over my the Trump Train (And that hurts, Just as the UN how it feels)

    So wonderful what great leadership in the Oval Office can do for our beloved America. God bless the Deplorables who voted for OUR PRESIDENT who is keeping his promises one day at a time. #MAGA #TRMP2020

  9. Will Higgins says

    What the f**k they just giving Trump credit for anything. Next they’ll say his responsible for good weather.
    How did Trump make people by more at stores anyway, if anything, people are less happy/Merry with him.
    P.S. Obama spoke very optimisticly about the economy.

    1. rocky says

      Yup… he did. He started saying that when he took office, as it was already going down. I give you Dodd-Frank !!

      1. Will Higgins says

        Obama inherited a recession, even Trump said he handled the economy well.

        1. rocky says

          I did not witness him saying that, but I would think that he has his tongue in a corner of his mouth and is saying what is politically expedient. The obummer economy just went from bad to worse, even when the rep’s got congress they ran in circles.

          1. Joseph Carrilho says

            What ought to be “what is politically expedient” is the TRUTH.

    2. con_c_kwense says

      …show me where ANYone on the commiecrat side is giving President Trump credit for ANYthing…
      …’people’ bought ‘more at stores’ because after 8 long, miserable, depressing years of socialist/islamic funk from the homosexual muslim and his gang of anti-American traitors, Americans are once again optimistic…
      …ohbummer didn’t say or do ANYthing optimistic in 8 years (unless you consider giving nuclear weapons to the world’s worst terrorist organization and organizing the worst race riots in history and encouraging confused children to pretend to be the opposite gender and prosecuting Christians for following their faith and bad-mouthing America and Americans at EVERY opportunity and of course the worst economic figures in decades and of course doubling the deficit of every former president combined…and corrupting the FBI, the CIA and the Justice Department…oh yeah, what an optimistic guy…the absolute worst PERSON ever to set foot in the White House…I don’t even consider him a ‘president’…)

      1. Will Higgins says

        Christians have not been prosecuted! People are not encouraged to be transgender.
        Trump talks like the world is ending, Obama talked like thing were getting better.

        1. Joseph Carrilho says

          Obummer is a LIAR, you too?

  11. Garys_opinion says

    But, but, Obama is saying that he’s responsible for this!

    1. Mike W says

      Of course Obama – or whatever the hell his name really is – always takes credit for whatever good happens and blames ALL of his failures on others. His maniacal ego won’t let him do otherwise.

      1. Joseph Carrilho says

        Obummer is a LIAR, always has been from what I’ve learned……

        1. Mike W says

          His name is not even Obama. It was LEGALLY changed when he was LEGALLY adopted by Lolo Soetoro. That also LEGALLY made him an Indonesian citizen. There are no records of his name having ever been LEGALLY changed again. I doubt very seriously there is anything to prove otherwise in ALL the records he was so desperate to have sealed away from the public. Also the real Obama’s in Kenya would like to see a DNA/Paternity test as they no longer believe they were ever related – they were just used as pawns for political gain.

        2. Mike W says

          If you have never heard of a little cult called SUBUD search it up. The woman who certified Barry’s Hawaiian birth certificate -Loretta Fuddy – was a member of this little cult. So was Stanley Ann Dunham. The cult was founded in Indonesia and has it’s U.S. headquarters in Chicago. Oprah Winfrey teaches SUBUD and George Soros funds it. If you look at the birth certificate that has been “accepted” as legitimate you will notice his father is listed a Barack Hussein Obama and his mother is NOT listed as Stanley Ann Dunham Obama – Just Stanley Ann Dunham. =They were never legally married – they couldn’t because Obama was already married with kids in Kenya. You know what that makes Barry – a little……

    2. con_c_kwense says

      …well, according to the muslim homosexual, BUSH was responsible for every foul-up that ohbummer made…now of course, (after eight years of the worst economy since the peanut farmer screwed up everything) OHBUMMER’S responsible for every improvement that President Trump is making…but if you remember back when the rapist-in-chief took office and President Reagan’s economy was still roaring along, the fascistocrats insisted that it was all slick-willy’s doing…we have to realize, in the weird alternate reality of a ‘crat ‘mind’…everything GOOD is because of ‘crats and everything BAD is because of Republicans…when the FACTS are just the opposite…

    “business celebrate one of their best holiday seasons in recent memory.” I’ll bet the NFL is not one of those businesses celebrating – I haven’t seen any sales figures for all things NFL from jerseys to shot glasses – but I’ll bet they are very disappointing.

  13. Eric Pearson says

    I guess I can safely assume that CBS and the WSJ somehow slipped in some real news instead of the fake news they usually report.
    You dumb fucks.

    Ingrates – instead of being thankful he says “Those bonuses are temporary” you are probably ones of those miserable people who cannot appreciate any good.

  15. safari1024 says

    This feels a little reminiscent of the recovery of spirit that happened after Reagan got in office. America was downtrodden. Vietnam, Watergate, and finally the Iran hostage crisis had taken the wind out of America’s sails. Only this time there was a protracted war in Iraq, terrorists attacked us on our own soil, a terrorist network became a country, menacing all including us, and a very unpopular and ill conceived health care law was forced upon us(except for politicians). In both cases the American people were not feeling good about where their country was and which direction it was going. Both scenarios included hard financial times. Both Reagan and Trump brought a new optimism to many Americans and backed it up with specific actions to help the economy improve American’s lives. Both withstood withering criticism from their detractors, but forged ahead undaunted.

    You all should know, Obama is taking credit for this! He still thinks the world revolves around him. Why can’t he just quietly fade away?????

    The POTUS IS the POTUS for a reason. He makes great things happen. I can only wish that this continues for (at least) the next 3 years.

    Oh if anyone still listens to the Progressive Laftards like Pelosi and THE SCHMUCK and their IDIOTS..of MSM , CNN and ABC ..” OBAMA MADE THIS CHRISTMAS HAPPEN” and then they’ll sell you a BRIDGE! Trump just “STOLE” the Election>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> and the beat goes on..

    I am disappointed at not finding “Tiger” here tonight.
    I hope she is doing well………

  22. Dirty Daug says

    This paragraph from above says it all, (Trump’s name is notably absent from both reports (can you imagine how these articles would have been written if Hillary Clinton were in the White House?) but it doesn’t matter. The American people know the truth, even if the media refuses to acknowledge it. We’re seeing the first, juicy fruits of a decision we made last November – one of the best decisions the American electorate ever made. 2018 is shaping up to be something special…that is, if our president can survive the Democrats’ attempts to drag him out of the Oval Office).

    Nobody bashed the little halfbreed faggot while he was doing his best to destroy America, but they’ll bash PRESIDENT TRUMP no matter what he rebuilds! Sorry bastards! 🙁☹😢

    It’s great to see things getting more positive! It seems to me our President is inspiring confidence everywhere. Its a shame some folks just can’t see it.

  26. Nellie McConnell says

    CA government still taking Seniors 3% cost of living increase. I got a 8.00 raise on SS but Brown took $7.00. NICE increase of 1.00.
    Brown has passed Mim wage to 15.00. That means lots of job loss. Farmers can’t compete with Mexico, China buying up Mexico farms, pay 5.00 a DAY to pickers. Our pickers will get about 25.00 an hour with increase.
    Trump needs to take over CA, Sanctuary State, criminals, illegals, Dreamers, non-vetted refugees. Brown is putting our state in DEBT, same as Obama did our COUNTRY. Is Brown a part of Obama’s Shadow Government? Go TRUMP.

  27. xeriscapelady says

    From day one TRUMP called people all over to come back into America, send money for business to America, and meeting and getting deals. What do you expect from the best business man in America? He wrote “The Art of the Deal”. He said he would do for America what he had done for himself and he is. GOD put him in to save America and he is putting everything he has into it, including his own money, no costs for where he stay AKA Mar A Lago,( as opposed top Obama- $3.8million EVERY TIME) and he gives his salary for things that need to be done, AKA– parks that are run down due to Obama. GOD bless this man. He is the new Cyrus for the New Babylon. GOD bless America.
