    Bush has been in the spotlight for so many years and I would imagine that takes a toll on anyone.

    Whether he is remaining silent about Obama out of respect for the incoming president or some other reason, it is the right thing to do IMO.
    Something you won't see with Carter, Clinton or Al Gore, the dumbest man in America. What do they all have in common?

    Wait, there is some change.

    Terrorist is now Man made disaster

    Oh, and they're spending $30 million to save the habitat of the salt marsh harvest mouse.

    Yep, the slapnut liberals saved that from foreclosure

    Bush doesn't need to attack Obama. The community organizer is Epic Fail all by himself, as his numbers indicate.
    Well they did change a few things; they don't call them "enemy combatants" now.

    It's so easy to be a Librul; you just change the names of things and care.

    Tell me, because inquiring minds want to know...when you are staring in the mirror an telling yourself you are right, do you whisper, speak normally, or actually scream?

    This is theatre. Both Presidents are actors playing a part. Both playing to an audience. Just look at what they say and the 180 degree turn in what they do. Bush=Obama=Bush=Clinton . Small changes mean nothing. Bush played the part he needed to to get Obama in office and McCaine ran his campaign like he was working for Obama.


    US threats mean evidence of British resident's Guantánamo torture must stay secret, judges rule

    Yeah thats recent. Closing of Gitmo means nothing. They are just moving them around again.

    Threatening executive bonuses means nothinig. Does not apply this year anyway and is not I repeat not enforceable according to the language. All for show.

    New appointies! No lobbyists! Lets get a pack of lobbiests and tax evaders in office.

    yadda yadda.

    Same show different day. How about that hope and change? See any yet?

    Beuller? Beuller? Anyone?
    Thank you

    You just can't help trolling can you?

    I am betting that when you stand in front of the mirror you are attempting to flex your flab and talk like Arnold Swartzenegger saying; "Dats right, I am bad."

    Carry on; I look forward to more of your incessant whiney blather.

    Bush is acting this way out of his own principles.

    To suggest otherwise is juvenile partisan bs.

    There are changes, just not the kind that was marketed. Foreign policy strategies, domestic priorities, the faces influence...those are the changes we will see. Politically astute individuals will realize that one man, even if he is the President, cannot change how Washington works. There will be no paradigm shift in who politics work in this nation. His campaign slogan was not a promise he could actually keep...it was a slogan. He ran a campaign, he got elected. Many of us realized this, that so many on the right did not is either testament to their naivete or the depth of their partisanship. Obama might as well have said "If elected I am going to cure cancer." Then everyone could run around and say "but but but he said he would cure cancer! This is unbelievable!" Only he was much more ambiguous in his context.

    I hear so much about "but he promised change, this isn't change!" Many things have changed and are changing. For the better? That is debatable. To the right's liking? Certainly not...but who ever thought the right would like anything Obama does? To say he's not delivered any kind of change and then rail on him for his policies that are obviously different from George Bush's is quite disingenuous (much like the "hope and change" mantra was).

    He only been in office a few months. I'll let the right harp on "he's not changed anything." It gives them something to do as they ponder their defeat from the last election. We'll see how many things change and to what extent.

    Addressing your idiotic hyper partisan rhetoric isn't trolling. Or didn't you get the memo?

    I will have to respectfully disagree. George W. Bush's principles are quite controversial and certainly fair game for debate. Nobody here can claim to actually know what his true principles consist of, we can only go on his past actions and surmise what they probably are. And it is from this that I say he isn't criticizing Obama out of self preservation. The media would draw and quarter him in round the clock, 24 hour news cycle fashion. Everyone knows this. And let's not forget, GWB was abandoned by his own party out of political expediency. That has to sting. Bush has no motivation to get involved. I don't think it has anything to do with his principles.

    These are all just opinions. I appreciate yours, but disagree with it.
