    More debt = worse in my book. He could've tightened the purse strings but instead, he ran up the deficit even more and spent a ton of money that has not necessarily produced tangible results.

    Depends. It is entirely possible that without the spending the economy would be in worse shape, which means correspondingly lower revenue, and thus still much debt and a longer time to come out of the recession and the downturn.

    Too early to tell in reality but Bush is clearly way out front.

    It also depends on what you value the most and your own opinions of those things. This question is very subjective.

    For me 2/21/11 is clearly bush, no debate at all but ask me again 2 years after obama is done, maybe my answer will change

    I agree that it might have taken longer to get out of the recession...(though I still think that we are in the recession) However all that has happened is at best a bandaid affect. What should have happened is to let those big corporations fail and collapse. Yes that would have meant harder times. But I think it would have been better in the long run.

    Big corporations have a tendency to stomp out the little guys. Half the time without even realizing it. This leads to monopolies, which in turn leads to stagnation because theres no real competition to make the corporation try to stay on top. By letting those corporations fall it would have allowed more competition to surface. Which is good for the common consumer. Competition means lower prices, which in turn means more spending because people can afford <X item here>.

    This post is of course just a small part of why I think Gov spending in the middle of a recession is bad. I won't get into more of it as this is neither the thread, nor do I really feel like getting into such a debate.

    Bush, hands down.

    Well. That was easy-peasy.

    Maybe he will. I'm not all that happy with Obama either. However, Bush is the one who got us into two unwinnable wars and turned a balanced budget into the worst deficit in our history. Obama inherited all that, then turned around and made it worse.

    I would definitely agree with at least "one" unwinnable war. But two? Last I knew Iraq was considered as a win?
