Because Obama always tried to help people have better lives, didn't verbally attack and smirk, nor did he ever bad-mouth someone struggling to survive as it just being their own fault.
Trump does do that, and proudly. Hurting people with open contempt by policy and attempted legislation, DOES get people angry. They KNOW now they're being hurt on purpose, with no benefit to jobs or the country.
Those fooled into thinking they're successful due to proportionately more "hard work" than those who are struggling - so they should just shut up and work "harder" or leave the country if they don't like it - are the ones supporting Trump's bad sink-or-swim contempt policy ideas, and massive shifting of wealth over to corporations and the rich, that has not resulted in any connection to more jobs.
Non-partisan hard numbers already show that Trump just glommed on to the TRAJECTORY of economic rise when he came into office. Any decision otherwise is just based on blindly believing republican rhetoric, so millions experiencing the opposite of the rhetoric, are really just "brainwashed", so summarily dismissed.
Again, more smirking insults based on defense of Trump's hurtful policies, gets people angry. Because Trump likes to attack and hurt. Obama didn't.
Better lives? The quality of life for ALL Americans suffered tremendously under the Obama administration. Obama spend a good 5 years blaming Bush, which he wasn't 100% wrong about. However, Obama never took responsibly for his own Oval Office decisions that turned into huge money wasting gaffes. One for example was his "Shovel ready Jobs Program" that wasn't in his own words wasn't "as Shovel ready as we thought."
As the Economy crawled on at 1.5% to 1.9% GDP we were told by Obama this is the new normal, we are a service sector economy, a welfare state, with decreasing manufacturing jobs and 6% reptded unemployment should be expected as well as rising taxes. A diminished standing in the world and our triple A credit rating lowered by S&P due to the policies of the Obama administration and the Obstruction of the Republican party. The Obstruction by the Republican party was an attempt to limit the continuous damage of the Obama administration.
The big O also asked during the 2016 election cycle what magic wand was Trump going to use to get the jobs back? There was no magic wand.
Trump took over an economy that was arguably stabe, but stagnant and could back slide very easily. We were very close to negative interest rates.There was hardly any growth.
There was just common sense decisions to bring us to where we are today. Lower taxes, less government regulations, A robust Economy, near record low unemployment and 3% GDP. All of which Obama claimed was because of him and tried to take credit for. The hypocrisy of Obama, his administration, politics and policies were a detriment to this country. The scary thing is that the seeds that the Obama administration planted have grown into what the Democratic party is today. A Socialist party. We are seeing first hand how Socialism works in South America.
Trump has done the exact opposite of what Obama did and its working.
Dems have nothing to run on in 2020 except Orange Man Bad. Good luck with that. It really concerns me when I see the level of hatred towards Trump that have no real basis for justifying why they hate him. The racist card is always over played usually because it isn't true. There was no Collusion, which Dems knew as far back in the spring of 2017 so they launched this Muller investigation to get Trump on an Obstruction charge which was their ultimate goal. And, while they got close to it they missed that mark too. The Democrats will keep up this dog and pony show for the next 5 1/2 years while the Trump Administration pushes the country forward .
