    A fascist government is going to 'kick in' in the United States?

    Has their been any indication of government getting involved in business during the past four years?

    Not so. We don't start over with each president. There is a continuum.

    In context, when exaggerate the actions of one that are different Han then other, it calls out for comparison.

    Well the Democrats as "Tax and Spenders" appears to be alive and strong as ever. Any leftwinger denying this is a liar. After hearing Sen Lindsey Graham it appears that Obama will get his tax hikes and will not reduce spending a single penny. He's a lying sack of ****, cause he said we needed a combination of both. This is why conservatives never trust the left to keep their word; they are out and out liars. On top of that Obama is raising the pay of everyone up top. This is exactly what the Dems did to Reagan, and later claimed he raised taxes and grew the budget.

    Republicans voting for this need to be kicked out for good.

    Count on SS "reform" to consist mainly of COLA reductions, or the inflation fix. It will be put "on the table" soon to show that a "good faith" effort to reduce "future" federal spending increases (the left's verion of spending cuts).

    Yep. All of the "bad" stuff is the result of the prior (other?) party's policies and all of the "good" stuff is the result of hope and change. After a decade, or so, the truth will be allowed into history books (maybe).

    This only seems to be the case when a democrat President is in office. In 4 years should we have a republican in, then I suspect that this view will change with the expected denial that this statement was ever made.

    Maybe it calls out for comparison to you but it's an urge you should try to resist. It's repetitive and dull.

    George Bush is history, Barrack Obama is now President and your fixation on George Bush, like most leftists, contributes nothing to the policies of the present or the future.

    I didn't say that. I said that the hyperbolic response to Obama is funny in comparison to aBush. So, in a sense I'm making the accusation to level against those who supported Bush.

    Again, I don't speak for others, but you certainly joined the chorus blaming Clinton, so logically, you should agree with me.

    I'm afraid Bush's mistakes I'll be with us a long, long time. Likely even after a Republican is elected.
