    I have consulted with Freddie. While they were a mess it was the early 2000's that they got REALLY gready. Why to you continue to attack me. Again, you want to tell "Yo mama" jokes next.




    And what president had the lowest approval rating in history?
    That is a worthless issue because we didn't have internet and 24 hour news cycles until recently

    so approval ratings mean nothing

    Bush was reelected rather easily

    his approval levels thus were higher than his father's, Carter's etc when it counted.

    Get the facts before spouting rhetoric, what a great idea. Too bad you don't follow your own suggestions. But thank you for providing a wonderful example of the cognitive dissonance I was talking about.

    True libertarians don't just support "economic growth" blindly and with no concern as to how it was accomplished or what its consequences are. Did you know that Bush's Patriot Act is the most significant blow dealt to the rights of the accused since Lincoln suspended habeas corpus during the civil war? You can't just point to a statistic taken out of context and ignore the fact that W. Bush was the worst president in history from a libertarian perspective. Obama is a huge disappointment for not repealing the Bush-era infringements on liberty, but this does not change the fact that it was Bush's fault to begin with. And that's to say nothing of the fact that Bush single handedly ruined our economy with two disastrous wars and economic policies that allowed "too big to fail" wall street robber-barons to extort billions in bailout money. There was nothing libertarian about Bush, and that is why it is so laughable to see so-called libertarians defend him.

    Agreed, I have never liked the whole approval rating thing anyways. It changes to quick to be of any use.

    That is the kind of response one gets from people who buy what the media says and never does any research. Educate yourself.

    The topic was a comparison between Bush and Obama. Try to keep up. Obama has put Bush spending on steroids and created massive expansion of regulations and the size of govt. That is hardly a Libertarian point of view but people like you are blinded by what you have been told.

    Dear lord man read the whle post. He agreed that he did not approve of President Obama's policy. Even said it was a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT. Yet all you can do is blindly defend President Bush by insulting people and yelling "OBAMA BAD".
