Unemployment doubled as 6 million jobs were lost during his 8 years (not even counting the addition 3.5 million until the end of the Bush Great Recession). An additional 5 million (on top of the 6 million who lost their jobs) fell victim to underemployment. GDP growth was the worst performance than every other president going back to FDR at a humble 17% over his 8 years in office. Finally, his (and Republicans) policies led to the recession in 2007 and economic crash in 2008 which crumbled our housing markets and credit markets.

    If I lied, it was that Bush was far worse than Obama.

    Now add in that he did nothing to prevent 9.11 and took us to war with Iraq over WMD that weren't there and you have the temerity to ask what's to hate about Gee Dubya Bush?

    :
    Bush had total control of the Congress from 2003-2006. Democrats controlled the Senate in 2001-2002 and then total Congress from 2007-2008. Do you ever stop lying.

The only thing you do bringing up Bush diverts from the Obama record and I don't blame you

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch! 39% JAR and well over 50% disapproval ratings.
    What's done is done. Since these warnings were all over the place, President Bush must have known about this, so I would say he was an empty suit and had a failure of leadership by not handling the situation. Do you think it was a failure of leadership on his part or not?

    So the "failure of leadership" claimed by you is justification for the incompetence in the WH right now, the massive spending, the blame game. and the terrible economic results? 2 1/2 years after taking office Obama has fewer people employed than when he took office and wasn't it you that claimed population growth should have prevented that? Obama has more unemployed than when he took office and that is after a blank check and a stimulus plan for shovel ready jobs. Obama has a debt of 14.5 trillion dollars and is spending 3.7 trillion a year. Where is the Obama leadership right now?

    U.S. Mortgages Enter Foreclosure at Record Pace (Update5) - Bloomberg

    June 14 (Bloomberg) -- The number of Americans who may lose their homes because of late mortgage payments rose to a record in the first quarter, led by subprime borrowers pinched in an economy that grew at the slowest pace in four years.

    The share of all mortgages entering foreclosure rose to 0.58 percent from 0.54 percent in the fourth quarter, the Mortgage Bankers Association said in a report today. Subprime loans entering foreclosure rose to a five-year high of 2.43 percent, up from 2 percent, and prime loans rose to a record 0.25 percent.

    The median U.S. home price probably will fall this year for the first time since the Great Depression in the 1930s, according to Lawrence Yun, a National Association of Realtors economist. Tumbling prices make it difficult for people who fall behind in loan payments to escape foreclosure by selling, said Doug Duncan, chief economist for the Washington-based bankers' group.

    Sure, they're all just lazy, right?

    Are you ever going to answer my questions? What do you think Obama should have done differently to create jobs? What is the Republican plan to create jobs?

    Many are indeed, 2 years of unemployment insurance? You couldn't find a job in 2 years?

    Obama should of done the exact opposite of what he did.

    Sometimes tough love is needed. Liberalism never accepts personal responsibility on any issue. Are you sure you ran your own business? How many people did you hire?

    Umm, the record you're so proud of is unemployment nearly doubling during his 2 terms.
