    I don't mind breaking a few eggs but these damn budget cuts could be a little less.

    Obama signs a 2500 page law passed by legislators who couldn't be bothered to read it and he signs it before he or any human has time to review it. This law is now removing health care options from Americans, and it's so odious that well connected companies are requesting and receiving exemptions to it's implementation.

    Obama jacks the national budget up to height reached only by the SR71 Blackbird, and he's suddenly become budget conscious (because the Americans took the House away from him) and now he wants to freeze federal spending at that absurd level.

    One only needs to realize what an insult he gave to our staunchest ally by returning the bust of Winston Churchill, not to mention giving the queen of England an iPod containing his boring speeches. He's alienated every world leader by his incompetence.

    Mayor Snorkum doesn't see any new drilling in the ocean off California. Mayor Snorkum doesn't see any new drilling anywhere in the United States or off any of our shores. But Mayor Snorkum does see gasoline hitting economy crushing heights this summer. But, Obama was told that his opportunity driven drilling moratorium was both capricious and unconstitutional, and the courts lifted the moratorium. So Obama imposed a new moratorium the next day. That can only be deliberate and no less an act of sabotage than if he'd tied C4 to the leg of an oil rig to shut it down.

    He's still trying to make up his mind if he should intervene in Libya, as if his losing two wars at one time wasn't enough.

    As I said, the damage Obama done is too great, too coordinated, and too evil to be accidental.




    Fortunately, Obama has less than two years.
    So in answer to high gas prices we should "drill baby drill" so gas prices could go down for a month and then go back to where they are now???
    So oil companies can have yet another record breaking year on profit.

    America is just getting over one oil man/president we don't need another.

    Re: Who Do You Think Has Done More Damage to the Country, Bush or Obama?

    Can I have an option "they're practically identical"?

    On one hand, Bush started two wars. On the other hand, Obama elevated those wars. On one hand the Bush administration administered torture, on the other hand the Obama Justice Department is fighting the Supreme Court like wildfire. They both have terrible tax policies, etc.

    Primarily, they both have absolutely unacceptable foreign policy. I suppose that if I HAD to pick I'd probably go with Obama. Mostly because he's portrayed as some sort of "progressive warrior", which is laughable, and discredits those actually wanting progressive reforms.

    From an impeachability standpoint I'd go with Bush, but only slightly.

    Like tese for Bush,
    Why not turn our port security over to Dubai?
    Doin a good job Brownie?

    And these for Obama,
    If elected I promice change?
    I will stand for the people on Main st. just as firm as I stand for the people on Wall st?

    What a bizarre question, comparing Barack Obama with George W. Bush. Why don't you just ask who has done more damage to the quality of movies, Martin Scorsese or Michael Bay.

    Statistically, Obama. Just go to Treasury Direct, and look at the Debt to the Penny calculator. Bush raised the public debt almost 3 times what Clinton did, and Obama's raising it about 3 times what Bush did - almost 9 times what Clinton did...

    Policy-wise, Obama. You have to realize, he voted for Iraq War funding, the Patriot Act, the Bush budgets (including the bailouts/TARP), and a free trade agreement with Oman. So even the Bush agendas were partly his fault as a member of Congress voting in support of them. He hasn't shown interest in reducing military spending or spending in general, he extended the Patriot Act another year unchanged, and he's broken all his campaign promises about bipartisanship, transparency, honesty, etc.

    By the way, Bush was the first to use the "Yes, we can". In his 2000 state of the union address he said "Juntos Podemos", 'together we can'. I guess he let Obama use it.

    Iraq War was a fundamental mistake, though I think obama's plans for the US are far more dangerous long term, my vote at this moment goes against bush.

    Note: His tax cuts worked incredibly well Iraq was just too expensive

    Tax cuts for who ?

    You need a job to have a tax cut.

    400,OOO JOBS WERE LOST IN LESS THAN 6 MO. THAT'S JUST ONE CHUNK.
    Realestate went down
    Manufacturing jobs left.
    Computer and electronics was on their way.
