    Every opportunity? That's what the difference is. Being Presidential means not getting partisan very often, unless it's in the context of an election. George Bush almost never even mentioned the Democrats by name. Reagan and Clinton used humor and a smile to attack their opposition, most of the time. Obama is always on the attack, always angry. There's no subtlety, and frankly he's just not Presidential. He's always right down in the gutter with his political opponents.

    Stay off the "It's a Small World" Boat as the music is destroying brain cells and causing you to become delusional. Please cite for me any quote where I said GW Bush was an economic genius? You make wild ass claims that you cannot back up that do nothing but divert from your own state and party failures. What is it about liberalism that creates this kind of loyalty?

    How about using some of that so called intellectual educational experience to stop posting personal opinion and passing those off as fact? It doesn't appear that the education you received taught you to take personal responsibility for your own or your parties failures as all you do is blame someone else as a diversion for failed economic policies, policies which I doubt you even understand.
