I can also tell you that very little of what President Bush did was for the small business owner. If your Exxon, Enron or Monsanto they you profited greatly. Middle class america, inlcuding small business owners, did not prosper like you think they did.
    Compared to what Obama has done, there is a difference between night and day. If you are a small business owner I am sure you welcome the new taxes that are coming your way as well as the higher cost of personal income taxes thanks to the Obama agenda. I have 35 years experience in the business world, both big and small businesses so don't tell me you have a better understanding of the private sector and capitalism than I do. Fact is that anyone who supports the Obama agenda doesn't have a clue as to the damage he is doing. Between Bush and Obama it is no contest. Bush didn't care what you made, Bush didn't care how much money you kept, and Bush doesn't care how you spend your money. that is the freedom which made this country great. Obama is jealous of that income that you earn and believes he and the govt. can spend it better.

    Tax policies aren't motivated out of jealousy. Fact as, when most of society's wealth is concentrated into a small minority of persons and institutions, that's where the tax hammer is going to fall.

    Why do you keep defending what President Bush did by saying President Obama is worse. Cant you see BOTH hurt the economy.

    Im suprised that you, and your 35 years of experience, dont remember how most small businesses were thrown in the crapper at the end of President Bush's presidency. Do you know how may business closed their door before President Obama even got swarn in. Ones that have been open for over 10 years. GONE. That was the Legacy he left behind. A shattered economy.

    Spoken like someone who supports taking of income from anyone that you disagree with. You don't seem to understand that taxes come from individuals and businesses that earned it. It is their money being transferred to the govt. so that the govt. can decide where it goes. You don't see a problem with that?

    How do we measure "hurting" the economy again?

    I don't call 52 months of economic growth and job creation hurting the economy. What did Bush do that caused small businesses to close their doors?

    Do you recall who was running Congress at the end of Bush's presidency?

    What, exactly, has Obama done to help American businesses?

    Again, I am not defending President Obama, Conservative is saying what a wonderful job President Bush did with the economy.

    There was a republican congress for the first six years.

    I would say that the worst economic down turn since the Great Depression is "Hurting" the economy.

    It was a Republican Congress 4 of the 8 years. It was a Republican House 6 of 8 years. You seem to have a reading comprehension problem, never did I say that Bush did a wonderful job but I did point out actual results which you obviously ignored. I asked you what Bush did to hurt you and your family and I am still waiting for an answer.
