    You're only standard of judging Obama is if he is nearly equal (marginally better or worse) to what Bush did? How the mighty have fallen. If one listens closely, one might just hear the pitter-patter sound of the soft bigotry of your low expectations.
    All they have to defend the Obama Administration is something which may, or may not, have been worse in the past.

    Of course this is not looking toward the future, what might happen if government controls private companies and the merging of the two in crony capitalism, and whether dishonesty is now acceptable by politicians because precedents have been set during previous administrations.. The bigger questions remain ignored and dishonesty is now being vigorously defended by the ideologues.

    Could anyone have predicted this just a generation ago?

    Just because we voted for Bush doesn't mean we supported more government intrsion.

    In fact, as Bush became less conservative, the more his popularity fell.

    I'm sorry, but this thread isn't about Dick Cheney, it's about the CNN story about how the WH is pressuring insurance companies not to critisize Obamacare.

    I'm guilty for taking the bait in moving away from the topic at hand, and it is one of great importance. This administration is not only investing in businesses, buying businesses, supplying start-up financing, but they are also now threatening private businesses.

    It's easy to see why there are few leftists responding to this thread, and the couple who do naturally want to change the topic to George Bush.

    So let me see if I can grasp this: The Administration is desperately attempting to keep people who could speak with both expertise and authority from saying what they think is going on, and the only way that that can possibly be spun positively is a desperate tack to the ole Bush-Is-Evil strawman?
