“We are feeling what not having hope feels like,” Obama told Winfrey in response to a question about whether President Obama had achieved the “hope and change” he promised while campaigning in 2008. As she often did while campaigning for Hillary Clinton, she didn’t mention President-elect Donald Trump by name. But she alluded to the contrast many in the country are feeling since he won the election last month. “We feel the difference now,” she said, noting that her husband had succeeded in keeping his campaign promise of fostering hope. “Hope is necessary. It’s a necessary concept,” she elaborated. “And Barack didn’t just talk about hope because he thought it was a nice slogan to get votes. He and I and so many believed that … what else do you have if you don’t have hope? What do you give your kids if you can’t give them hope?”
Hopelessness? I've felt more hope in the past month than I've felt in the past eight years. I do take that back. when Obama came on board, there was certainly a hope that he would be able to make some changes from the previous Bush Administration, and these changes were certainly interesting. However, it became evident early on that his liberal socialist agenda was behind it all.
We certainly have seen alot of change in the past eight years. For a conservative Christian like myself, this change is hard to stomach. I guess I'm just clinging to my Bible and guns still.
Or as Hillary Clinton says, "A basket of deplorables."
Here is a snapshot of where we are/were. Look at this and see for yourself.
Hope and Change, Trump style.
