    No, as they say on Dragnet just the facts, just the facts. or in the case between Bush jr. and Obama just the math will do.

    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.
    A small differance there, well not too small.

    Bush was a Republican he had the support of Republicans.
    The White House administration, Senate and House were controled by Republicans for 6 years.

    In 2000 he had the majority of the world as well as many Democrats,{ myself included} support after 9/11.
    What was his support when he left office?

    And he had an increase in tax revenue too. At the same time. Unless that's completely unimportant.

    I understand your line of reasoning, I just don't feel the same way. We could nit pick and find anything wrong with either, or find things that are right. The President has special legal powers for sure, but he is also just the face of a greater network of people. There were a million things good and bad that happened during the Bush admin, and I'm not just saying that to be an apologist. It's true.

    One man is not truly in control.

    Sadly? She will not be running anytime soon and has said she is very happy with the work she is doing right now.

    What people don't see ever so often is that fact that bush made bills that would take effect after he left office.

    Sure that time is now over but in my opinion what has happened in America is...

    Bush royally screwed up, I mean royally and Obama is trying to clean things up but its just sooo bad he really can't do much.

    Also I hope Clinton does run again as she did say that she wouldn't be Sec of State again which might mean she could be considering a run.

    Was that before or after the bailouts?
