    and yet, we the people elected them all, along with that Congress that is currently enjoying an approval rating of, what was it? 11% (and dropping, no doubt).

    We keep electing them, basing votes on partisan loyalty and dumb TV ads. We have met the enemy, and he is us.

    There where insane people at both times from the start of their presidencies.
    The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking.

    Bush was treated worse before taking office by the Press and the dems did everything possible to try to erect obstacles as he was coming into office and Obama faced neither. However, 9-11 gave Bush a reprieve and the Bush haters went hiding for at least 6 months because they were worried that bashing Bush would be seen as aiding comfort to the terrorists or at least undermining the anti terrorist effort.

    But the press has been far kinder to Obama. If Bush's college grades had been hidden, the Press would have been howling for months. Obama has taken as many vacations as Bush and you don't hear squat from the press about that (which was a silly issue with Bush since a president is never really on vacation as long as he has a phone or a SS agent near him with one)

    So far Bush has been treated worse by his opposition than Obama by his opposition. We will have to wait to see if overall one was treated worse than the other.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I think they're both being treated the way they deserve to be treated. Their treatment is based upon their performance. If they can't do the job that they were hired to do, they deserve to be complained about.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: Who is treated worse, Obama or GW Bush?

    Bush by far, no contest. Bush is scapegoated for a whole bunch of crap he had nothing to do with. America's recession is the fault of corporations and the public, not the office or his Cabinet. He's called stupid, yet he has two degrees from two different Ivy-league schools. I think the main thing is that the lies and slander being told about Bush is something lots of people believe, whereas most of the crap slung about Obama is so far-fetched it's borderline funny, like he's a Muslim and terrorist because of his middle name.

    Bush was definitely in the bottom half of presidents all-time, but he gets blamed for a HEAP of stuff he has no reason to be blamed for, unless you're a far-left socialist who thinks everything should be controlled by government. Meanwhile, Obama is clearly to blame for almost everything going bad in his administration. However, vocal media and irate ideologues will make decisions for most people.

    Bush - even Fox ran him into the ground and he's still being blamed for pigs flying.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Really it is about the same, but I think the media and people behind Obama treat him badly for not doing enough or being as forceful as Bush was, Bush because he was to forceful.

    Bush, without question.

    Even today, when the Mesiah pulls out his trademarked "It's Bush's Fault" speech, the media lap it up.

    MORE Americans are dying in Afghanland than ever before. Where's Code Pinko today? Cindy Sheehan? Where's the media coverage of those clowns?
