    Which is super amusing considering that TARP actually worked. Anyone want to guess how valuable their retirement funds would be if the banking and financial sector collapsed? Unless you're heavily into gold, you're retirement fund would be toast. Bush and Congress saved our retirement funds and now they're being treated harshly for doing it. I dunno about you, but I tend not to hate the guy who saved my ***.

    Responsibility is not something the Bush years were made of. The whole notion of deficit spending during economic expansions is a sign of that.

    Really? Bush was blaiming Clinton for 'the mess he inherited' more than 2 years in? Got some credible links?

    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.
    Presidents aren't very *liked* at all - nor is Congress. . . not very many people actually approve of anyone's efforts - no matter what they are - if they're opposition.

    This is nothing new - nor is it a big deal when it happens *because* it's nothing new.

    The day the opposition is ok with their opponents job is the day hell freezes over.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

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.
    I guess that is why all his people are running out on him.

    He did not take them over and say what they could get paid. Bush also left half the money for Obama. It was not just Bush it was also the democrat majority in congress
