    Giving money is not taking over as Obama did. Money helps them sustain and improve public opinion after a devasting event.

    Re: CNN Poll: Was Bush better president than Obama?

    The only reason to down a president such as Barack Obama, is out of fear and racism. Bush and his colleagues ruined our country by GOING TO WAR ON LIES. If you can not see that our current president is a promising intellectual and that he is doing his best to fix the state of the nation, than you are closing your eyes to the truth as you all have been doing for years. To think that Obama is "trying to ruin our country" is a ridiculous slander and by no means does any evidence support this. For the rest of eternity may president George W. Bush be remembered as the worst president to ever have weaseled his way into office.

    Fear or racism? Throw OUT the racism-rhetoric and stop playing that card, please. It's VERY old - especially considering that it came into play when *Clinton* - people calledh im our first black president and obviously he was far from it in the literal sense.

    Yes, Obama's our first black president.
    No, I don't give a damn.
    I don't agree with him politically - but so many people throw around the racist card that I've begun to really question their focus and interest in politics at all. Do I *have* to force myself to say I agree with his policies and decisions (even though I don't) just to *avoid* being called a racist?
    That's a bunch of bull**** if you ask me.

    I think people are playing on that taboo accusation to bully others into siding with *their guy* - which is just as lowly as *being* racist.

    I don't vote on race or fear. Though I do see your point (Pessimism and paranoia (not fear) seems to drive the opposition and race seemed to play a huge 'vote' role for many Democrats.)

    I'm not in either of those groups - like many others.
    I'm not afraid of anything. I do, however, have my opinions of how our government and country should function and what our priorities should be - Obama, Bush, Clinton - et al - in different ways - all seem to be very good at going against my perceptions and thoughts on the issues.

    Bush and his colleagues ruined our country by GOING TO WAR ON LIES.

    Into this part of your post - you can substitute ANY president's name for Bush's or Obama's and still have a truthful statement depending on who reads it.

    Guys, guys. The aviation industry falls under the control of the Federal Aviation Administration. Damned socialized airlines!

    I just meant that there is no reason to hate him the way people (republicans) do, for anything he has done or tried to do, especially compared to his predecessor.

    President Bush brought us to war, Obama tries to give free healthcare.. this poll makes me wonder how many people read the bible?


    maybe it's naive of me to base my opinions about THE PEOPLE LEADING OUR COUNTRY, on what kind of person they are, and what direction they're bringing us and our country.

    Looks like a few people out there would like a do-over on Obama.
    I think what people want is not so much a do over as much as to do-do all over Obama.

    Bush sucked at a lot and did a lot I disagreed with, Obama has yet to do anything right.

    His is the only one to ever be in that office for whom I have no respect for at all, and before you wacko radicals start the name calling it's about what he's done and is trying to do with his policies that are Anti-American and can be traced back to his mother, father, stepfather, Muslim elementary school, Marxist pals in higher education, 20 years of indoctrination in Black Liberation Theology by Rev. Wright, which is 100% anti-American, anti-US Constitution, anti-capitalist, and Anti-white people.

    So hold the race card up in Obama's face not mine.
