    Bush took over with a debt of 5.7 trillion and a federal budget surplus of 128 billion (FY2001) ; Obama took over with a 10.6 trillion dollar debt and a federal budget deficit of 1.4 trillion (FY2009).

    Yeah, that's my thread I have did and do critisise Obama's health plan.
    To me it looks more like an insurance ad than a health plan.
    I also said that Obama is too wimpy , and he can not solve America's problems by making speeches

    What's your point ,sir?

    However if we are to compare bad plans, as well as bad decisions made btween Bush and Obama by all means lets?

    All I've heard is Obama's health bill true it's bad

    But what of Bushes plan to pre invade Iraq based on bad intelligence, what of Bushes speech tof MISSION ACCOMPLISHED,
    What of Bushes plan to turn over America's port security to Dubai a company known to deal with terrorist.
    Need I go on?

    if you are looking to me for support of the Bush clan, you do not know me.....
    Bush Jr. had a war and a tax cut at the same time. Texans should be able to do the math better than that....after all, No Child Left Behind started in Texas, under Bush...

    This thread just shows how conservative these boards are. While Obama has not been as great as many had hoped, he has a long long way to go before even reaching Bush's knees on the damage done to the US.

    Bush doubled the US debt, exploded the US deficit, managed to have year after year of deficits despite having a booming (bubble) economy, did nothing to prevent the housing bubble and in fact helped it get even worse and the list of his economic failures go on and on. Also he started 2 wars and took corruption in government to new levels, stretching from allowing the raping of the Government by private corporations his own people had links too, over to bringing in partisan **** into disaster relief in Katrina... 100 dollar plastic sheeting anyone? Toxic mobile homes for evacuees anyone?

    I don't think it is possible for one man to shoulder all the responsibility for a country's changes. It is about communities and networks of people taking action in a chain of events. The public is also involved in that - not just government. Even in the absence of a government, the country would be constantly changing.

    I'd rather like to think of the Bush or Obama periods as non-Bush and non-Obama periods. In other words, they were just periods of time, where there were different influences, different intentions, and different approaches to addressing our whole way of life. Our Presidents were part of that for sure, but so were we, and I don't think any of us could really pinpoint a single human as the reason for what happened. That is far too egotistical and narcissistic for my taste.

    I disagree with just about everything you ever say anyway, but this is real bull****.
