    Hey, look at that ... it only took you 8 minutes to get my counterpoint!

    I'm almost impressed.
    I generally don't have a problem with GWB's GWOT conduct. After his initial mistake in not taking terrorism seriously enough as a threat, he recovered and did pretty well.

    That's not true at all, Obama has created more wage earning jobs than Bush did in 8 years.

    Iraq has certainly been painful, but it may turn out to have been a good thing on balance.
    Tell that to the families who lost a loved one in that war of choice.

    BHO is now well into the fifth year of his Presidency. If there were ever a time when "blame the predecessor" was OK, it's long in the past.

    Like I said, Bush was passing the buck 8 years into his presidency. That should give Obama another 3 years and 8 months to do the same.

    Yes, BHO has created more jobs because there have been more jobs to create. Under GWB unemployment was generally so low that there were fewer additional jobs to create. As for Iraq, the measure of general good against individual loss is always an impossible calculation.

    The financial meltdown of 2008. There's no doubt about that.
