    The difference is I am not defending President Obama. I dont want him to spend it either. Where were you when President Bush was spending our money. Where you complaining then or just now that your party is not in power.

    So you'd drop the FAA and let the airlines just fly willy-nilly through the skies whenver they want?

    That sounds safe!

    Besides, I thought your boy Reagan did the airlines the favor of "deregulating" them in the 1980s.

    I love people who are blatantly factually incorrect who have the cojones to call others stupid mother-****ers.

    Of course, I should get used to it - since that's going to be like half of Congress.

    Bus was at the time the lesser of 2 evils. The GOP paid for that in 2006 and 2008. I hope they learned a lesson and get back to conservative principles.

    In the mean time I did not vote for Rubio but I voted for the constitution party candidate.

    These are direct quotes from President Bushs Campaign brochure in the 2000 race.
    How is any of that relevant to what I said, and the topic at hand?
    Obama ran on 'fixing' the 'wrongs' of the Bush administration; thus far, he has only made those things worse. Given that, If you believe that Bush was 'bad', you must then believe that The Obama is 'worse'.

    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
    THis is a story that says GWB blamed Clinton.
    Do you have a cite for direct quote(s) to that effect?

    As I always say, misinformation dies a slow, hard death, if it dies at all. I had someone tell me the other day Saddam was behind 9/11. This far down the line, the false belief persists.

    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.

    Are you serious? You blast President Obama for his campaign promises in post entitled "Was Bush better president than Obama?" and I show that President Bush failed in almost every one of his and you ask how its relevant. What platform do you think President Bush ran on. . "Well things are going pretty well its time someone comes along and Fs things up."

    Also you logic is flawed. President Bush = Terrible president <> President Obama is 'worse'.

    Can you please be more spasific what President Obama has done worse than President Bush. Maybe a topic with an example.

    You missed the point. I'll try to simplify.
    The Obama ran on the platform of "I will fix what GWB did wrong".
    Since elected, he's done all of those things that GWB did, just to a far worse degree.
    So... if you believe that GWB, because of the things he did wrong, was a crappy Preasident, must conclude that The Obama, who was worse at all those things, is a worse President that GWB.

    Can you please be more spasific what President Obama has done worse than President Bush. Maybe a topic with an example.
    Certainly. Start here:
    Respect My Authoritah - The Daily Show with Jon Stewart - 6/15/2010 - Video Clip | Comedy Central
    Be sure to watch the whole thing.

    So your entire argument for President Obama being worse than President Obama is centered around an 8:30 min comedy show clip.

    Thats sad.
