Obama Takes Credit: When You Hear Economy Is Improving, ‘Remember Who Started It’


Former President Obama on Monday urged a crowd in Las Vegas to “remember who started” the current economic boom, reminding them that the country recovered from the Great Recession during his presidency.

Obama echoed language from President Trump, who in July claimed his administration unleashed an “economic miracle” with tax cuts legislation.

“When I walked into office ten years ago, we were in the middle of the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes,” Obama said at a rally for Nevada Democrats. “By the time I left office, wages were rising, uninsurance rate was falling, poverty was falling, and that’s what I handed off to the next guy.”

“So when you hear all this talk about economic miracles right now, remember who started it,” he said to thunderous applause and a standing ovation.

  1. real FAKE NEWS !!!!!!!!!!!

    unemployment was way up there – busineses closed or moved to China during NoBama years

    the only credit he can take is for depressing the economy and the lives of American citizens

  2. I also remember who made my insurance premiums costs go up threefold, who put grown men into girls’ restrooms, who sent millions of dollars to Iran, who sold uranium to the Russians, who allowed millions of illegals to stay, and who couldn’t organize his own Chicago community to stop killing one another.
    Of course, I also remember the first and only man in history, who visited all 57 US states, but that isn’t very important.

  3. What a lowlife first he claims it will never again reach a certain point and then when it surpasses it presto it’s because of him and don’t forget that whatever went wrong is wrong or will go wrong is the fault of past present and future republicans

  4. FAKE NEWS – unemployment skyrocketted in his years – the economy was in the dumps

    Thank You Mr Trump for all you’ve done and will do in the next EIGHTYEARS

  5. Ex-president Obama is far smoother than President Trump, but he is even more arrogant and contemptuous to those he disagreed with than Trump ever was. Remember his dismissive “I won” statement when he blew off GOP concerns about his own stimulus package?

  6. Obama, whom are you trying to fool with your lies? Have you forgotten when you made fun of Trump and said, “Jobs are just not going to come back”?
    For the record, after 8 years, you were the first president in the US history who did not even achieve a 3% GDP growth!
    Secondly, you were the first president whose national deficit grew from 11.5 trillion dollars to 21 TRILLION DOLLARS – an increase of almost 50%.
    And a massive unemployment rate of about 25%! And you have the nerve to take credit for improving of the economy???
