    Re: Bush vs Obama

    Obama easily..

    Bush was horse****, old drunk who couldn't even speak in complete sentences, and looked hungover half the time, his daddy was **** too that's why Clinton whipped his ass...
    Bush allowed 9-11 to happen..
    Started 2 wars that turned out to be a failure, whatever happened to those WMDs, LOL..
    Pissed away the surplus slick Willie left...
    That POS Patriot act...
    When the old drunk left in 09 the Dow was around 7 thousand, now it's 17.000
    Bush needed help from the SC to win in 2000- Gore won the election, Obama kicked Gop ass in both elections EASILY...

    Bush was lucky to be. member of the lucky sperm club, a rich mommy and daddy, otherwise his dumbass would be mowing lawns for a living, or working a a janitor in some redneck bar, the guy was half retarded..

    That seems rather partisan to me. The planning for 9/11 started 4 years before Bush took office and the anti-American hostilities were present before he arrived. The book, Blowback, is a good source on the rising anti-Americanism and written in 2000. And after 9/11 there doesn't seem to be any attacks on US soil (or outside of Iraq and Afghanistan). Since Bush left, we have had shoe bombers, underwear bombers, Ft Hood assassins, Benghazi attacks, etc.

    It is bizarre that Bush gets blamed for everything that happened, with no consideration to the situation that he inherited or the cooperation or lack of cooperation of Congress. The seeds for 9/11 were planted before Bush took office. They may have been as invisible as the seeds of the recession but they were there. (Such as Clinton's deregulations)

    I feel Obama has been better but he still needs to do a lot of work. He is definitely not the "hope" he expressed himself to be.

    I think in the end, Bush will be viewed as the moron he is, and Obama as the mediocre president he was

    The fact that Bush is being voted higher at this point in this poll just shows the hyper partisan, low information political environment right now.
    You've got that bass ackwards. The media is on Obama's side.

    You do know that Obama had wealthy grandparents and was sent to the priciest prep school in Hawaii where he met the elite of Hawaii, right? You do know that the increase in the Dow helps the rich and contributed to the fact that the GINI coefficient has increased more under Obama than it did under Bush, right? You do know that Obama continued and expanded the worse stuff that Bush did such as the Patriot Act, drone attacks into Pakistan, the war in Afghanistan, the rise in debt, etc., right? You do know that c. 80% of those Bush tax cuts that should have expired were made permanent under Obama, right? You do know that under Bush the unemployment rate was more than 6.1% only for 4 months and it is only now, after 65 months, that Obama got it down to 6.1%, right?

    Thank you , you have just proved my next point thats Obama's been too Conservative for us progressives, BUT we voted for him because he is the lesser of 2 evils, and i hated Romney who had the balls and stupidity to get up in public to tell the whole world how much he hates the poor, and i hated Palin even more, i wanted out of Iraq and Afghanistan in Feb 2009- obviously it didn't work out that way..

    All arguments that can be summed up by a meme graphic are weak arguments.

    Obama, but both are awful, specifically on issues such as surveillance, prohibition, healthcare, foreign policy, and energy.
