      A Sampling of Conservative Reactions to Obama's Provocative and Challenging Speech Yesterday

      Obama finally went on the attack against Trump and the Republicans.

      Barack Obama took off the gloves in his September 7 speech at the University of Illinois—asserting that Trump has been “capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years, a fear and anger that’s rooted in our past.”

      The U.S., Obama stressed, is experiencing “dangerous times,” and the November midterms offer voters “the chance to restore some semblance of sanity to our politics.”

      Here is what seven right-wingers have said in response to Obama’s speech.

      SPONSORED

      1. Sen. Lindsey Graham

      On Twitter, Sen. Lindsey Graham asserted that Trump’s speech made it more likely that Trump would be reelected in 2020. The South Carolina senator tweeted, “The more President @BarackObama speaks about the ‘good ole years’ of his presidency, the more likely President @realDonaldTrump is to get re-elected. In fact, the best explanation of President Trump’s victory are the ‘results’ of the Obama Presidency!”

      2. President Donald Trump

      Speaking in North Dakota, Trump didn’t have a substantial rebuttal to Obama’s speech—only juvenile insults. The president said of Obama’s speech, “I’m sorry, I watched it, but I fell asleep. I’ve found he’s very good, very good for sleeping.”

      3. Mercedes Schlapp

      Appearing on Fox News after Obama’s speech, Mercedes Schlapp (White House senior advisor for strategic communications) claimed that Obama was falsely taking credit for Trump’s economic accomplishments. Obama, according to Schlapp, “spent billions of dollars in stimulus money while creating a stagnant economy. On the other hand: President Trump. Clear contrast. We’re seeing a booming economy because of President Trump’s vision.”

      4. Joel B. Pollak

      Breitbart.com contributor Joel B. Pollak not only attacked Obama in a September 7 critique of the speech, but also, the University of Illinois itself. Denouncing the university as a “corrupt institution” for giving Obama an award for ethics in government, Pollak insisted that Obama’s “entire speech was based on a false conceit.” Pollak went on to say, “When Obama takes credit for the economic recovery, he ignores the fact that it was the slowest recovery in the post-War era, largely due to his policies. The recovery began in earnest when Republicans took over the House in 2010 and put an end to any prospect of more massive stimulus bills, or more heavy regulations like Obamacare.”

      5. Ben Shapiro

      To hear Ben Shapiro tell it, Obama’s speech was too much of a lecture. On Twitter, Shapiro posted, “Obama lecturing us is LITERALLY how you got Trump.”

      6. Matt Drudge

      Although Twitter isn’t great for deep analysis, it is perfect for soundbites. And after Obama’s speech, one of them came from Matt Drudge—who tweeted, “Democrats lost 76 House seats and 15 Senate seats during Obama’s terms. Now, the former president is determined they never get them back!”

      7. Rick Wilson

      Florida-based GOP strategist Rick Wilson has been one of the most outspoken anti-Trump voices on the right. Wilson has repeatedly denounced Trump as a curse for right-wing politics. And on Twitter, Wilson used Obama’s speech not as a chance to attack Obama, but to have a laugh at Trump’s expense. Wilson tweeted, “I see Obama is trying to make Grandpa Ranty angry. Betting it works."

          I find it rather amusing ....

          Trump and his "boys" have said lots about the former president ....

          And when he comes back at them when given the opportunity ...

          They start to cry ...

          Well here's the problem ...

          Not only does the former president know how to spell and speak ....

          He knows how to debate !

          So we'll see if they get the picture and shut up !

                          What the Republicans really have to fear from Obama is that he'll get out the vote as he did in when he was running himself.

                          I don't think Obama's lofty rhetoric is going to convert anyone, but I hope it gets them off the couch and to the voting booth.

                              Actually that is not so. Obama began working on ending the recession which, he made clear, had its roots in 40 years of bad housing and financial sector policy......he accepted responsibility for the work of his administration and that work (along with the in-built recovery mechanism within the economy) resulted in a turnaround which continues to this day.


                              The question is how much credit does Trump get for that continuation. Certainly the huge tax cute gave businesses a lot of money to reinvest in themselves (in part with job expansion and better wages but generally by buying up their own stocks). Deregulation also frees up funds. Of course, the impact on the debt and on the environment/safety could well be very adversely affected. Many think they will be. We are just beginning to see the impact of the tariffs (ask SC and its auto factories about that one).
