Did I just say that?  A few memorable quotes, or forgettable quotes, depending on how you look at it, from former President Barack Obama.

Here are some memorable quotes from our past, (orally gifted?), President Barack Obama that you might have never heard, since the biased mainstream media tended to look the other way in his case.

“If somebody is different from you, that’s not something you criticize, that’s something that you appreciate.”  (Yes sir, unless of course you’re asked to appreciate white people in general, white people of southern descent, or European culture.)

“For too many of us, it’s become safer to retreat into our own bubbles, whether in our neighborhoods or on college campuses, or places of worship or especially our social media feeds, surrounded by people who look like us and share the same political outlook and never challenge our assumptions. And increasingly, we become so secure in our bubbles that we start accepting only information, whether it’s true or not, that fits our opinions, instead of basing our opinions on the evidence that is out there.”  (President Obama was directing these comments towards white conservatives, without even realizing that these comments could boomerang right back around and apply to any race and any culture.)

“If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that.”  (I’m sure I can find about a million people who would argue with you about that.)

“If you like your healthcare plan you can keep your healthcare plan. Period.”  (I’m sorry Mr. President, but you just lied straight to our faces with this one, and more than once.)

“Elections have consequences…”  (Yes they do, and liberals should learn how to accept those consequences, just like conservatives are expected to.)

“If you don’t like my policies go out and win an election.”  (We didn’t, and we did!)

“She will say anything and change nothing.  Hillary can’t be trusted and isn’t qualified to be President.”  (A truer thing was never said!)

“The Cambridge police acted stupidly.” —commenting on a white police officer’s arrest of black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. at his home in Cambridge, Mass., at a news conference, July 22, 2009.  (The decline in respect for the police rose to a new level under President Obama.)

“We’re the country that built the Intercontinental Railroad.” – Cincinnati, OH, Sept. 22, 2011.  (Hey, we’re good!  Wait, what?)

“I’ve now been in 57 states, I think I have one left to go.” – At a campaign event in Beaverton, Oregon.  (Allllllrighty then.)

“It’s not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” -explaining his troubles winning over some working-class voters. (No, this isn’t racist.  This isn’t racist at all.)

“The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn’t. But she is a typical white person, who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn’t know, you know, there’s a reaction that’s been bred in our experiences that don’t go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way, and that’s just the nature of race in our society.”  (Again, no, this isn’t racist.  This isn’t racist at all.)

“In an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, “No, no.  I’ve been practicing, I bowled a 129.  It’s like…, it was like the Special Olympics or something.”  (Can you imagine if President Trump said this?  No you can’t.  Whatever you’re imagining, multiply it by ten!)

“It’s here that companies like Solyndra are leading the way towards a brighter and more prosperous future,” said President Obama after Solyndra received a $535 million Obama “stimulus package” handout.  (Solyndra then promptly went bankrupt.  I’m sure the big contributors to Obama’s campaign came out of it all just fine.)

“My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world.  I hope you’ll join me as we try to change it.”

President Obama and his friends did give it the old college try, but thanks to the election of President Trump, we’re flushing all of those changes and making America great again!

In President Obama’s own words, “Elections have consequences…”  (Yes they do Mr. President.  Yes…they…do.)
