    Raw Story Democrats scold Obama on signing statements
    Correction; Bush is NOTHING like Obama. Bush never spent us into a $1.8 trillion deficit with more to come and Bush never made a political grab at power as this administration has with it's czars and policies.

    Please do not place Bush in the same category as Obama, Obama has taken Government power grab to all time new highs.

    Yes it is. But then, I haven't seen a president in my lifetime that isn't a politician and keeps true to EVERYTHING he says he does.

    I agree though, it is still wrong.

    Is that what you "infer" from my comments? I suggest that you get some reading glasses or learn some reading comprehension.

    Your trite attempts to read nonsense into every comment that doesn't fit your narrow Liberal partisan points of view are amusing at best.

    I want to address this one in particular; Bush's spending dealing with 9-11, two wars which were authorized by vast bi-partisan majorities and Hurricane Katrina which devastated a major US city pale in comparison to Obama's unilateral passed (nothing in this administration can be considered bi-partisan) "stimulus" spending us into a $1.8 trillion deficit.

    It is almost as asinine an argument as suggesting that this massive deficit was the result of republicans in charge.

    Here is a clue for you; in 2006 when republicans were in charge the deficit was in decline and at about $168 billion. Since Democrats took over in 2007, and with the junior Senator Obama's help, the deficit has shot up to over $1.8 trillion. One can only WISH that we were back at the deficits caused by Bush.

    Carry on.

    All of which was as incompetently handled, inefficiently handled, and spent as much money as possible. An occupational war which we are still not out of, huge increases in government power including spying and warrantless searches, not to mention horrible legislation such as The Real ID Act. An increase in executive order and signing statements which basically comes down to legislature through the executive. Yup...Bush sucks, Obama sucks; and the government is spinning out of control.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    First off learn how to use the quote feature, it isn't that hard.

    Secondly, yes, you have basically come in here and tried (and failed) to try and excuse Bush's out of control spending and increasing the size of the government.

    None of which excuses increasing government size, and the spending and mismanagment that Bush has done.

    Apologies for attacking the methods of your God Bush.

    As Ikari said, Bush's spending sucked and was wrong, and I think Obama is spending way to much is wrong.

    Obama's spending DOES NOT excuse Bush's spending as you would like us to believe.

    Carry on
