    Well, when we hear that a question can't be asked of a WH staffer because that scandal happened a whole two years ago, then what exactly do you expect?

    Cherry picking only in the sense that the right track/wrong track in your quote appeared to be attributed to Obama only (you didn't mention the whole question or that it included congress). If that wasn't your intent intentionally I withdraw the cherry picking comment.

    I agree its not good. It hasn't been good for going on 14 years now which includes the presidents and congresses along with that. I'm not on the "blame Bush" waggon, there is PLENTY of blame to go around for both the Reps and Dems.

    Both sides have done it. When Bush was in office, many on the right were blaming Clinton or that the Left wasn't patriotically support Bush in Iraq. With Obama it is the same thing with the left, they blamed Bush for many things even 6 years into it.

    However, what I still find most damaging is that people STILL don't realize that the Dem/Reps have let us down and they continue to support them.

    Thank you....On that I think we can agree.

    You're right, it can't be discounted historically, however, outside a historical context it's not relevant to people's lives today.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Answer me this, how do you proclaim Obama is the worst president ever WITHOUT comparing other presidents? Or you can just run away or continue posting childish things.

    Well, that is a bit of a stretch....I will concede that March, April of 2006 Bush fell to as low as 32% while Obama stayed or climbed this March, April to near 47%. But at this point, July, August Bush had climbed to 39%, and Obama is now at 40% according to NBC....I'd say that is pretty close.

    Would it help if we said "in modern time"?

    Never has a lesser man sat in that seat. That became painfully obvious a long time ago.

    I can't wait for 2017 when the Republican President starts doing things and it's all "But..but, Obama!" Basically because I want to start throwing back the "He's not President anymore." Though I suspect that some posters will magically disappear in 2017.
    You don't have to wait - all you have to do is look back to 2001 when GWB took office and had all kinds of problems going forward. I don't recall a single time when President Bush spoke into a microphone and said it was Clinton's fault or Clinton did this or didn't do that. He was his own President for better or worse. And he's carried that over to Obama's Presidency, refusing to make any comments on the job Obama is doing.

    I can't guarantee it, but I'm hopeful the next President in 2017 will be in the Bush mold, not the Clinton/Obama mold.
