Actually, just read the headline right before I was on this website, and decided to throw it out there. Everytime I make even a small criticism of Obama, there are some here who can't help themselves but to hop on their keyboard in a huff. Good lord, look at Elkpark's reply. What is the point?
And, at least one person will cry "deflection", particularly when whatever I post forces them to see their own hypocrisy in their criticism of Trump. I was reading earlier posts in this thread the other day. I've been accused of "deflection" since at least the first half of 2017. Again, what's the point?
I find it quite amusing.
You can tell that our society is degenerating when the president insists that thousands of deaths in the aftermath of a hurricane are made up propaganda by his political enemies.
Does this reflect Ollie North's leadership?
But Dude did offer up a righteous deflection from Trump to Obama.
He gets a power up and extra life for such expert use of the tactic to avoid talking about Trump. Cue the gamer music signaling the end of a level.
Now Trump demonstrates that he has no clue how cause of death is determined or how post disaster data is collected. And we learn that he has transferred millions of dollars from the FEMA and Coast Guard budgets to pay for ICE detention of brown children.
But sure, let's change the subject to Obama, or maybe Clinton, or some upsetting liberal candidate somewhere.
I guess it being election season, it's a good time for a reminder that it was actually Bill Clinton and the Democrats, by way of their affordable housing goals, who deserves the lion's share of the blame for the 2008 Recession.
Government Policies Caused The Financial Crisis And Made the Recession Worse
Republicans redistributed a good measure of middle class wealth into the pockets of the wealthy during their last presidency and the expected devastation of the economy by their feckless policy. Republicans have changed nothing in their dangerous fiscal rhetoric, yet they would have us believe that if they just keep doing the same thing the result will be different.
I'm pretty sure that the crash of 29 and the 08 recession were great moments in capitalism. Even those events can't convince people that greed won't self regulate in the fictional free market.
