    This would be under Obama's Managing of the Bureaucracy and he is proving to be one of the most inept Presidents in history, in this regard.

    Actually, yes and no. Bullet point time.

    • Big government - YES
    • Massive spending - YES
    • Abortion - NO
    • Stem Cell Research - NO
    • Get out of Afghanistan/Iraq - NO
    • Guantanamo (its the intentions that count anyway lol) - NO
    • Offshore drilling to decrease dependance on ME - NO
    • Sweeping wallstreet Financial Reforms - NO


    So to say they are the same difference is misleading. As you can see, the ol' confederate redneck that be Bush didn't like stem cell research (other than religious dogma, he has no reason to not support it. With proper regulation, it can be integrated safetly with standard medical procedures, as long as only state hospitals have the technology to carry this out. Much like our nuclear arsenal. Keep the blueprints away from the bad guys and dont give individuals the power or resources to develop one) , or the idea of abortion (well, that's something else).

    Now, they agree on some key issues which have been associated with recent US blunders - centralization, expenditure. Obama insists that state health care will reduce the budget deficit. Thats like telling me eating 3 pizza's a day compared with 3 salads a day will help you loose more weight. Aint buying it.

    Then we have Guantanamo (its the thought that counts anyway, lol). That big cage contains within it everything that is wrong with republican policies and America.

    Offshore drilling to decrease dependance on ME - no talk from Bush about that. Seems he proffered relying on the Saudi's, although BP's big screw up will likely see the demise of this idea.

    Sweeping wallstreet Financial Reforms - gotta hail the Obamamiester for that one.

    As far as pulling out of the Middle East is concerned, anybody would have though Bush was leading imperial Rome. Everyday passes and little brown men get angrier, and the more little brown men that get angrier, the more radicalization, the more attacks and the more instability that comes with it. We need to settle our beef with that region, and pull out. But they still need to be kept on a leash, of course, especially the Iranians. Too damn religious to conduct proper politics and that hurts us - as their subsequent neighbours.

    That would wall under his management of the bureaucracy, which he is doing an even worse job than President Bush (who himself would be on the short list for worst President in history when it comes to managing the government).

    What do you think he should have done instead of increasing troop strength in Afganistan? Instead of continuing the war in Iraq?

Without such distinctions, this sort of "poll" really doesn't say much.
    LOL... The "greedy rich".

    I don't think we have seen a more effervescent and relevant administration in the last 50 years to be quite honest.

    The real question is "How exactly are they different"? I think the only thing you can really say is that there was discussion on national healthcare under Obama...but even that ended in nothing more than a give away to the insurance agencies. Again, something which benefited the elite most and the People the least.
    I couldn't have said it better than that. One thing I would like to add to what you just mentioned here is that the same route that the Bush Administration took with Iraq is now being done by the Obama Administration with Iran and it's for the same exact reason, "Nuclear weapons". I think we could possibly have another war on our hands if we're not careful in that situation. It's just absolutely ridiculous and I think he needs to be criticized more on this issue and the rest of his foreign policy than anything else.

    Obama is good at speaking thats for sure...the goosebumps will go away in about an hour. I would think not sounding like a hick would be good for foreign relations, however.

    How so? Everything seems pretty bad and getting worse. What do you think President Obama has done that will make things better in the long run?
