    No he did something 'controversial' every week. Like remember when he wore a tan suit! Or when he half-saluted a marine while holding a coffee while boarding his helicopter!

    or when he allowed a Marine to hold an umbrella over him in the rain...
    or when he didn't have a jacket on in the Oval Office

    Funny thing about quite a few of those gripes was how they were met with pictures of republican presidents doing the same thing.

    It was eight years of s**** largely made from whole toilet paper.

    And that's the ridiculous thing when some people here complain that we're so much harder on Trump than they were on Obama. We had daily threads, often multiple daily threads, complaining about Obama. But they were either:
    1. Simply not true. (He hid his college records!)
    2. Something really minor (He likes Dijon mustard!)
    3. Or, as you just noted, claiming he had done some horrific unprecedented thing when in fact it was something every president had been doing. (He held a Ramadan dinner at the White House!)

    It's a shame you were unemployed and didn't know how to invest when Obama was president. You missed out. Oh well, maybe the market will be positive again in 2019 and you'll have more cash to count that whatever you got from your tax cut. Time will tell.

    Mostly the wealthy had the funds to ride that Obama wave. The only surprise is that libbies didn't call Barack out for helping the rich get richer.

    Why was it any easier to invest in 2017 than it was in 2016?

    Well, a lot of investment money was freed up after they didn't need to bUy every gun and ammo box at Walmart anymore.

    Still wondering though, why was it easier to invest in 2017 than it was in 2016, or 2015, or 2014 for that matter? Was there some big change in the economy I've overlooked?

    Deflection. You and your libby friends did not call Barack out for helping the rich get richer.

    actually, the conversation was about investing during Obama and you tried to change to Obama helping that rich. That would be the deflection.

    Obama should have raised taxes on the rich to higher levels. It was a missed opportunity.

    I guess along with your chance to make money in the longest bull market on record, you also missed that whole Occupy Wall Street, 1%, income inequality thing.

    I haven't been "unemployed" since PA school 20 years ago and that was a program directive(still did some side work). I did just fine while the market went back up after the last crash (as they always do regardless of what party is in the WH).

    If you are living by the market being up comparing Jan1-Jan1 I can't help you, I made plenty of great returns last year playing trends, so I could care less if the DOW or S&P are flat year over year. Making hay over a flat year over year is a cheap trick hacks use to try to prove a point but really doesn't prove much.

    We watched it, it was a bunch of sound an fury and signified nothing. The 1% still are the 1% and the wealth envy crowd are still full of envy and blame everyone but themselves for their lot in life.

    Well they did get that hack AOC elected from NY, she pays dividends in spades every time she opens her mouth, the new Pelosi but better.

    Must be why they're so mad about how well people did in the stock market while Obama was President.

    Recent history shows that the stock market does better under Dem presidents.
