During a speech in Illinois, Former President Barack Obama said President Donald Trump is "capitalizing on resentment that politicians have been fanning for years" and questioned "What happened to the Republican Party?", in his most pointed rebuke to date of his successor in the White House.

  • It is so hilarious to me watching the bias of people. Democrats drool over the city it's the media drooled over him. If this has been a trump speech it would have been called something very insulting like Trump attacks opposition.

  • My brother David was part of the the Globe Theatre's 2 year tour playing Hamlet around the world. The final performance tpok place at the Globe Theater in London. At the end of the show, Barack Obama went up on stage and spoke to all of the cast and crew, and took pictures with them. This was completely off the cuff, their was no prior plan for to do this. Importantly, this occurred during Barack Obama's presidency. My brother and his colleagues found the president to be funny, easy to talk to, and sincere. I consider it most unfortunate that Barack cannot run for another term. Mr. President, I have your first book, waiting for second:) Jan

  • Obama was a worthless president. in the last 4 years how many gun shootings at schools were there?? How many were there in Obamas last 4 years??? Now with Creepy Biden I would bet they will be back with another guns are bad we should ban them. Oh look another school shooting and another and another. Your vote for Biden is the downfall of America. Who started the KKK? Democrats, who voted 100% against freeing the slaves, Democrats, who voted 100% against giving rights to the black man, democrats, who voted 100% against giving woman there rights, you guessed it democrats. How far does an apple fall from the tree??? Not very far. If you think anything has changed with the real party of hate you are a idiot. Not one of them white democrat politicians gives a fu*k about anything other than the destruction of the USA. Lenin the leader of USSR said "Socialism leads to communism" He started out in the "Socialist Democratic Party" before overthrowing and instituting communism in Russia.

  • [Collected via e-mail, May 2013] I have seen an article posted on Facebook that says that President Obama has been asked by the Nobel Committee to return his Peace prize. Is this true? Origins: On 9 October 2009, the Norwegian Nobel Committee made the surprise announcement that U.S. President Barack Obama, who at that time had been in office for a mere eight months, was being awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize “for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.” Barack Obama thus became the third sitting U.S. president to be so honored, joining Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. (Jimmy Carter also received a Nobel Peace Prize many years after leaving the White House.) The Norwegian Nobel Committee’s decision in awarding a Nobel Peace Prize to President Obama was not popular with everyone, however, and has spawned protests from various persons and groups calling upon the committee to revoke the prize over such as issues as the continued presence of U.S. troops in Afghanistan, the continued holding of detainees without charge at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, and the expanded use by the U.S. of drones for remote killing. In October 2011 the web site The Final Edition (TFE) riffed on this controversy by publishing an article about the Nobel Committee’s having asked President Obama (“nicely”) to return his Nobel Prize: Thorbjorn Jagland, chairman of the Nobel Peace Prize Committee, said today that President Obama “really ought to consider” returning his Nobel Peace Prize Medal immediately, including the “really nice” case it came in.Jagland, flanked by the other four members of the Committee, said they’d never before asked for the return of a Peace Prize, “even from a damnable war-criminal like Kissinger,” but that the 10% drawdown in US troops in Afghanistan the President announced last week capped a period of “non-Peace-Prize-winner-type behavior” in 2011. “Guantanamo’s still open. There’s bombing Libya. There’s blowing bin Laden away rather than putting him on trial. Now a few US troops go home, but the US will be occupying Afghanistan until 2014 and beyond. Don’t even get me started on Yemen!” Soon afterwards links and excerpts referencing that article were being circulated via social media, with many of those who encountered it mistaking it for a genuine news item. However, no one associated with the Norwegian Nobel Committee officially asked President Obama to return his Nobel Prize; the article was just a bit of pointed political humor from TFE, a satirical web site whose other recent stories include “Shock in Arizona: Governor Jan Brewer Reveals She’s a Velociraptor,” “From Here to iTernity: Apple Launches iTombs,” and “Thatcher Dies, Goes to Hell, Hell Spits Her Right Back Out.” Last updated: 28 May 2013 David Mikkelson ASP Article

  • A system that can't bear up to close scrutiny in order to protect the interests of its people, is a system that is broken. This, to me, is a bi-partisan issue. It happened in 2016 as well & for my money I hope it continues in the future. It's sad that hatred for one individual has him now renting space in our heads holding common sense hostage. I think if people who voted for this man were just half as zealous in their support of him as those whose hatred is so zealous it consumes them even after we fired him. In fact, we fired him based on policies that we're now being told will take a back seat to another attempt to whip the dead horse of impeachment. To quote Mr. McConnell, now heading this movement in the Senate, during the 1st impeachmen he said, "There''s. nothing more to be learned from the second kick of a mule." Guess that ain't aging well Mitch. We'd all be better served by revisiting the quote and dismissing the speaker. If things continue on this trajectory I believe Trump might be correct about victory because he owns more real estate in the heads of these career politicians than anyone else in Patronage City, U.S.A. When is everyone gonna even try to pretend we're still out here. My level of disdain for this self-serving mob makes me not want to vote anymore. How you think he got elected in the 1st place? The only choice left to the people is the lesser of two evils. Anymore I have to hold my nose when entering the voting booth because the stench of D.C. is quickly covering the entire country.

  • American democracy is difficult because the government made it a strategic scheme; Consequently, The government's misrepresentation throughout the years is backfiring and causing utmost resentment. The two parties have become more of a private syndicate working, fighting for their own benefits and enhancements. All this, of course, is through the off-focus lens. In reality, both wings belong to the same vulture. In order to rectify this calamity is to abolish the elite banksters and eradicate all their descendants. We The People must govern the nation as managers working for the rest of the people with two years terms without presidential and senate power.
