    I suppose, in the context of the question, I lean right. One of my complaints about Bush is the reversal of "no net loss" (regarding wetlands) during The Patriot Act.

    No. He ranks among the worse.

    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.

    Okay what? That's all you have to say? For someone who goes out of his way to be an instigator, I would think you would have more to say on the matter.
    You stated an opinion of Obama, and I said okay. What do you want? I'm out of cookies.

    What exactly is it that you are looking to hear? Sorry that people just don't see things your way.
    I'm not looking to hear anything, but if you've called Obama a liar and not Bush, now wouldn't be a good time to admit it. Since it would reveal a massive bias.

    Incredibly passive-aggressive. You implied just that, yet apparently are too cowardly to come out with your own true feelings.
    I think many people who hate Obama are not Republican. Some are "independent".

    Re: Was George W Bush a good president?

    So, in the two surveys so far;

    GWB has 75% negative and Obama has 68% negative.


    So basically, most American voters are USELESS at choosing POTUS's.

    Well duh.


    And, imo, the next one, whomever it is and from whichever party, will be as least as useless as these two at 'running' America.

    Wake up America, the fault is not those in the White House...it's yours for putting them there.

    Why do you use the word "hate" so often ?

    If one opposes Obama's policies doesn't mean they hate him.

    The SPLC labeled every American who didn't support Obamacare as racist.

    The left labels anyone who wants our borders secured at xenophobic or racist.

    If you don't approve having your child seeing men dancing around in jockstraps during a Gay Pride Parade, your labeled as homophobic.

    I opposed President G.W. Bush's "comprehension immigration reform" aka amnesty, why didn't the right claim that I hate Bush ?

    I think I started associating Obama opposition with genuine hatred around the third year of the birth certificate hunt.

    he was/is the best President we had POST 9/11 ..when he had to clean up Clinton mess of not prosecuting the FIRST WTC attack as and act of war..which led to 9/11 and the loss of so many..

    on 9/11 Obama would have attacked the GOP and then put the white flag up on the remains of the WTC... scary to even think of Obama being our President on 9/11 with the brain thrust of Biden and Jarret surrounding "the 5 pound workout king"

    that would have been great for the American people at that time of loss

    Tax cuts were extended out to everyonex not just " the rich" amd are you seriously STILL blaming Bush 6 years into a Progressives Presidents term ?
    LOL. Bush apologists trying to blame clinton for the great Bush/GOP housing recession. Just pathetic. It was bush who came up with the idiotic idea circa 2002 that the govt should use the tax payers money to give loans to low income folks. Seriously what did he think would happen?




    "Thanks to our policies, home ownership in America is at an all- time high. " bush in 2004 for RNC acceptance speech.
    bears, bulls, white sox fan 4 life!!!
