    seeing how is being paid full retirement for the rest of his life after working 8 years...I doubt he really cares.

    what is amazing is that 8 years of Clinton had absolutely no effect on the Bush administration, but somehow Bush is responsible for everything that goes on in the Obama admin.

    Yeah, it's probably explainable by some monk in the Himalayas as a time-continuum thing, but it certainly is odd, isn't it? I mean...to skip four years like that? :

    I think GW and his dad and probably Jeb too laugh it off and don't concern themselves with what Obama and/or his media friends think about them. They're all very confident men and didn't worry about polls when it came to doing what they thought was best and they're happy to let history judge them, come what may. People like Carter and Clinton and Obama are consumed with being popular and trying to get people to love them - it's why they're constantly in the limelight and constantly trying to prove how smart they are.

    Are you referring to US Patent Office? I don't think they have an official opinion on the free market.

    Their salaries are a pittance compared with what the get from the lobbyists. Not to mention the jobs they get offered when they leave office as long as they "play ball". We have lost control of our legislators and there is nothing we can do. Throwing them out only results in WORSE and more beholding sell-outs as their replacements.

    Bush blamed Clinton for everything bad during his whole 8 years. He blamed Clinton for his first recession, 911, Korea getting nukes, some in his administration even said invading Iraq was Clinton's idea. The Daily show even had a bit about FOX news blaming Clinton during the Bush Administration.

    This is just one example of many of the consequences of what our culture has built. We value money over human life. And that is across the board.

    I agree for the most part, but, although both parties are to shoulder the blame, as I said in my opening post, they are all on vacation while cancer patients are told to hit the bricks, it just seems like the Obama cabal is doing what ever they can to make the cuts as painful as possible...A political calculation I suspect.
