    No. It is, however, one area. He should have been more forceful over health care reform if you want another. But if you think he's been the disaster Bush was, sorry, that would be inaccurate. I'd be hard pressed to find anyone in modern history who's been as bad as Bush. Some here work way too hard to try and make Obama seem as bad. Obama's not perfect, but better.

    Yeah, right....I guess a true believer would think so.

    Doesn't it take a true believer to believe Bush was better? See, that silliness works both ways. Instead, you have to show specific reasons. Bush invaded two countries, spend US lives without just cause, and broke moral law no matter how you want to pretend that he didn't break actual law.

    Just as when it first came out, no. And you be hard pressed to find many outside the faithful who do.

    Obama has gotten more troops killed in A-stan then Bush ever did, plus his ME foreign policy directly led to the deaths of an ambassador, and three seals while he did nothing in his power to save them...He has played more golf than the last three Presidents put together. He is more interested in throwing celebrity parties in the WH than he is showing leadership, and he is spending more than all other Presidents combined bringing this country to its knees...He is a failure, a liar, and an extremist hack.


    for starters.

    Bush started the wars. No Bush, no deaths. Sorry, that's a fail on your part as well.

    Sorry to inform your hack Bush bash, but the Taliban started our involvement in A-stan...

    My first estimate is that my taxes will go up by just over 10K. So I let one of my occasional workers go in November. I will still have to cut back in other ways. Money I would have spent locally will disappear in Washington.

    I will take appropriate measures. I may put in an additional underground fuel tank and water tank. I will buy a small generator to deal with the power outages. I can stock up on some canned goods and grains. Ammunition and reloading equipment, of course. I have been evaluating solar panels and a battery farm.

    No more money for my children.

    Nothing that required invasion. We did not have to nation build.
