    I respect GWB a lot, as a President and as a man. I can't think of one "impass" Bush had with congress in his 8 years that didn't get solved either by Bush finding a way or Bush withdrawing the initiative. That's what leaders do, they lead.
    I find it entertaining that you think it would "save Obama's ass".
    The GOP made a huge mistake and is paying the price. Will pay dearly in 13 months.
    If the GOP fails to find a way to crawl out of their failed extortion tactics, it will only benefit Obama and Democrats.
    I think even if the GOP does crawl out, they have already doomed themselves.

    Or do Dems and Repubs equally loathe him and it wouldn't make a difference?
    Only if he could marshal the military to invade the Democratic caucus to install a regime change.

    I think the bitter taste that many on the right wing of the GOP and pretty much everyone on the Democratic side had with his presidency is a little too fresh for him to be particularly effective. Also, I really don't think that would be anything he'd be interested in, judging by what I've read about the guy.

    Bush-43 would begin with enforcing the promises Boehner made in late September to Reid..
    But Speaker Cantor stepped in with the knife in the back.

    It would be useless. The tea party faction are True Believers who only put stock in those who march with them and embrace their whack job zealotry. .

    Utter nonsense.

    The Libbos's heads would explode, if they had to side with GW on anything. The Libbos would double down in the shutdown and the shutdown would last forever.

    It's funny as hell to see Libbos make these criticisms of the Tea Party.

    You haven't seen Obama's numbers. Have you?
