    Default Obama Thinks People Trust Him More Now That He's Not President

    Former President Barack Obama said the public is more likely to embrace his ideas of change in America and its pivotal role in global cooperation, now that he has left office.

    During an event sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in New York on Wednesday, the former president said he had faced criticism during his tenure for stating that the U.S. needed to work together on climate change alongside other countries, rather than attempting to achieve such aims alone—a far cry from President Donald Trump's approach to climate change and his decision to leave the Paris Climate Agreement.

    Obama said his pledge to bring about change in the U.S. was not taken seriously until his presidency ended. "About 40 percent of the country didn’t believe me—until I was gone, and then they believed me," he said.

    "I take great pride in what the U.S. can do. But if we are talking about climate change or global migration spurred on by drought or famine or ethnic conflicts, we are not going to be able to solve those things by ourselves," he told the crowd.

    "It doesn't make you less patriotic to believe that. You just have to have some sense and read," he said.

    The former president also took the opportunity to address Obamacare and the current discussion over the future of the Affordable Care Act, in line with the subject of the event, which focused on global health initiatives over the past quarter of a century.

    "When I see people trying to undo that hard-won progress for the 50th or 60th time," Obama told the crowd, "it is aggravating."

    "It's certainly frustrating to have to mobilize every couple months to keep our leaders from inflicting real human suffering on our constituents. But typically, that's how progress is won, and how progress is maintained,” Obama added.
    The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.

    "Hard-won progress", no you did it through fiat and fraud and lying. You are a deceiver and your social ideology a contrivance. Trust you, please. Take a hike, candyman; you can keep your hope and change, trust me.

    You know he was establishment, because they didn't blow his brains out.
    They fought the Wars
    They lost.
    They turned friends
    into enemies.
    Who became
    friends of our enemies.
    They stood alone, in splendid isolation,
    And said it was their only choice.

    To be fair, he still the President of civil war bloodbaths in Syria, Libya.

    Or do you really think millions of people displaced/killed from those civil wars have already moved on and therefore we should too?

    But if you're just looking inward as matter of policy.. if you were able to keep your plan, guess you could move on in a non-interventionist way

    I have been trying to get you to understand this about Obama. That is the idea that Obama is not the leader of anything, he was never the leader of the US. He is just the avatar of the true leaders of the country. Some people call it the deep state, the continuation of govt(COG), zionist occupied government (ZOG) etc and those same leader control Trump now.

    Have you ever wondered why the policy is Syria, Libya and ISIS never really changed when we had a change in govt?

    You waste your energy just attacking the avatar.

    I could agree if you are suggesting that he was just a lowly public relationing officer for the deep stage war enterptise neocon lobbies.. but I cannot understand giving any such character a pass as long they are still being celeberated by many ignorant folks, promoted by his puppet masters, rewarding with hefty wall street speech fees etc.

    One should be able to understand the bigger picture and still be able to assign responsibility, not more difficult than walking and chewing gum.

    Well it depends on how they criticize him. See its not that I think the presidents/puppet bear no responsibility at all for the crimes they cover for during their presidency. I just think it is the obsession with Obama that annoys me.

    Take for example, calling Obama the founder of ISIS. Yes, he covered for ISIS and pretended to be attacking them but come on, he is not the founder of ISIS. It is most likely the deep state creeps who are controlling Trump right now that founded ISIS.

    Btw, I criticized Obama and I criticize Trump but I am not obsessed about them or go overboard like you tend to do sometimes.



    Trump fighters in Syria working with ISIS? how so if Obama his sworn enemy founded ISIS?

    And, ISIS is just the continuation of Al Qaeda- another US formed "bad guy" group to originally fight the Russians.
