    The entire exercise is silly - there's no comparison between the President saying "It is someone's fault" and an average supporter of that President saying the same thing.

    You might as well be arguing that one of The Obama's supporters declaring that The Obama hates whites people is the same as The Obama himself saying it.

    I am not a big fan of President Obamas platform but . . .

    These are direct quotes from President Bushs Campaign brochure in the 2000 race.


    On the ecomomy --->

    "I’ll promote a responsible economic agenda to continue our prosperity"

    What happened: By the end of President Bushs second term we were on the verge of an economic collapse. Please note that in his own words the county was in a state of "prosperity"


    Strengthen Social Security --->

    "Governor Bush believes America has a moral responsibility to save and strengthen Social Security."

    What happened: By the end of President Bushs second term Social Security benefits were considered in crisis.


    Taxes -->
    "I’ll provide tax relief for all Americans, especially those struggling to make it into the middle class." Blah blah "Governor Bush’s goal is to make it easier for people to join the middle class by cutting taxes and making them fairer."

    What happened: By the end of President Bushs second term the gap between rich and poor is reaching all time highs. Middle class is becoming extinct.


    Vision to Improve Education.--->

    "I’ll make our schools accountable for results"

    What happened: By the end of President Bushs second term the United states ranks 33rd among first world countries on reading. Just after Brazil....BRAZIL! In no catigory did we rank in the top 20 and only in science in the top 25.


    Health care --->

    "I’ll reform Health Care so every family has access to affordable health insurance"

    What happened: By the end of President Bushs second term over 50 million Americans do not have health care.


    World view --->
    "He will rebuild our intelligence services. As President Bush will order an immediate review of overseas deployments"

    What happened: Umm well you know


    So Goobieman, what do you think of those campaign promisses.

    Bush is retired so that comment is inappropriate to the discussion as well as misleading as Bush whined much:

    Posted on Oct 12, 2006
    George W. Bush, retreating to familiar ground, has blamed the Clinton administration for North Korea’s nuclear arsenal. But the official who brokered the Clinton-era deal with North Korea called the idea “ludicrous,” and defended his efforts. Bush Blames Clinton Again - Truthdig

    Bush Blamed More Than Clinton for Failure to Capture Bin Laden

That made the 700billion bailout appear as though President Obama spent it in 2009. <end of hushed tones> That brings President Bush's total to over SIX TRILLION.

    All of the debt the country incured between President George Washington and the end of President Clinton added up to around 5.5 Trillion. President Bush Spent over 6 Trillion. I just dont get this. I dont want President Obama to spend it either so where were you during the last presidency. The country really could have used your help
    Yet Obama is on his way to triple it

    Considering how highly regulated the airline industry is (having their own govt agency), it's not surprising that the govt has to keep bailing them out.

    Who cares about number? Search the discussions here. Do a search. The fact is they did blame Clinton. Hell, they still do this day.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    OF COURSE!!!If Washington had crossed the river a few miles upstream we would be in utopia by now.
