    And he prevented the 911 attacks? And he killed Bin Laden?

    Like I said, he was asleep at the wheel.


    That's not very likely, since Obama is solidly in last place as far as Presidents go.
    In what respect? Number of lives lost due to terrorism? Number of attacks on US embassies? Number of recessions started on his watch? Number of executive order? Yes, he is last place in all of that.

    You are not serious, are you? What could Bush possibly have done to cause a recession in 2 months? I gotta hear this one.

    No, I'm not serious at all.

    Equally, what could Obama had done to cause the recession that started 15 mths before he took office?

    Of course Bush didn't start that recession, but blaming Obama for the Great Bush Recession is equally absurd. You can't see that?

    By the way, I voted for Bush, and have never voted for Obama. But I'm just attempting to be reasonable as I really dislike the hypocracy created by partisan politics.

    I heard the internet is pretty good for that stuff. You can also get a definition.

    Nothing, but it would be nice if he could get the economy going sometime, it's only been 5 years or so. Bush didn't take this long and he had to deal with a recession, then 9/11. Remember that one? Oh, you might want to look up the CRA before you go blaming every blessed thing on Bush.

    By the way, I voted for Bush, and have never voted for Obama. But I'm just attempting to be reasonable as I really dislike the hypocracy created by partisan politics.
    Great, I voted for him once too.

    So, you expected Bush, the guy that was "asleep at the wheel" to be the only person in the United States to have figured out that 9/11 was about to happen? So please tell me, who did know about it? Clinton(s)? Gore? Schiff? Why didn't the geniuses step forward to help, since he should have known?

    That's pretty disingenuous if you think Bush didn't have anything to do with killing Bin Laden. Obama said "okay", Bush did the rest. I thought you claimed you were trying to be fair or something?

    I think it would be easier to try and figure out where he is not the worst. I'm hearing crickets.

    OBUMMER IS THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER AT ALL THINGS.

    Do you guys realize how ridiculous you sound?

    For that matter, I can't imagine why in the hell we would ever consider voting for another republican POTUS, because at the end of the last republican presidency, we had NEGATIVE growth. Yet some republicans still pretend that Bush wasn't doing a horrible job. Bush was asleep at the wheel, for his entire presidency. I called him the PINO (president in name only).

    I guess it's all about picking from the lessor of evils. I suspect that in a couple of more years, we are going to compare the 8 years of Obummer, and the 8 years of Bush, and decide that the 8 years of Obummer ended much better than the 8 years of Bush. thats assuming that our economy doesn't fall apart before then of course.

    Now talley up how many recessions started under recent presidents (during my lifetime), by party. Let's see, 6 under republicans, 1 under democrats. Hmm.

    List of recessions in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    I find it quite interesting how little so many here know about civics and how Congress works. Prior to the Democrats taking control of Congress, Bush took over from the Clinton recession, had 9/11 and still grew the economy 4.4 trillion dollars, created 9 million jobs, and had 5 straight months of job creation. Bush added 4.9 trillion dollars to the debt.

    Democrats took control of the Congress, Obama has created 4 million jobs in 6 years, has stagnant economic growth, 7 trillion added to the debt, and record numbers of discouraged, workers and part time employees.

    You see, actual facts just show how partisan you really are.
