    Both Presidents expressed the same lines. Bush was criticized for using the phrase that Osama was 'wanted, dead or alive".

    He also said "He can't run forever", and he was right.

    Well Bush downplayed it to the point where he said he was not even concerned about him anymore. Thankfully our sitting POTUS was

    I have been impressed with the way Bush handed this whole thing and like him a lot better out of office than in.

    Both Presidents said they wanted to get him dead or alive and both later understandably downplayed his importance. We should understand that Presidents also address terrorists and their supporters when they are making these pronouncements and don't want to magnify the importance of their enemy. Thats why Churchill often referred to Hitler as 'the little corporal'. It's a strategy and should be recognized as such.

    Again Bush said he was not really worried about him while he was in office. This is a fact.

    Yes, he did, a couple of times. It was sour grapes, IMO.

    Yes, I said that he did and that both Presidents did. These are facts and not in dispute. There is no disagreement here.

    Also, if you care about government growth, you should of hated Bush. Bush ushered in the biggest expansion in Executive power and growth in government.
    Funny how Bush and Cheney were blamed but know Obama should get a pass. Double standard anyone

    We will eventually be looking at universal health care, or bankruptcy. We can't sustain our current system much longer.

    Oh, and Obama still does not control the price of oil (that's from elsewhere in this thread, not the quote). If the price is high, it is not his fault. When it goes down, as it is now, that is not his credit. How much power do we attribute to the presidency, anyway?
    Obamacare will make healthcare worse and more expensive to tax payers.

    Funny hoe Bush and Cheney were blamed but now Obama has no responsibility. No hypocrisy there LOL

    Funny how there was a different standard for Bush. The media investigated him without ceasing yet nothing on Obama they may even help Obama stay secretive. More double standard from the left
