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

    I'm going to keep my opinion out of the first post. I think the title pretty much sizes things up. George W. Bush vs. Barack Hussein Obama

    I believe this is a really difficult question because they're both... not my favorite. But I would say Obama because of his ridiculous inflation of the debt. Bush screwed us too... but it was for less. I think the national debt is our largest problem in America, period. I will say that Obama is better on a few things. Aka - trying to wind down the Iraq War is a good thing IMO. Also, I applaud his efforts to stop the raids on medical marijuana users who are in unambiguous compliance with state laws.

    Started 2 wars, high oil prices as a result of those two wars, Patriot Act, faith based initiatives, associating political opponents with terrorism(which has been used by the Republican party well after they left), demonstrated nepotism, completely denied the concept of waterboarding as a torturing method(even though the US had convicted Japanese soldiers of doing the same), "Brownie"...

    The list of crap that the Bush administration has tied its name to is simply too long to remember.

    As far as reputation goes? Bush.

    As far as taking away rights? They are about even.

    As far as spending money like its going out of style? Obama.

    So all in all I would say that they are about even.

    I don't think you can really judge how much damage either has done for some years yet.

    What about the debt? I agree Bush was worse for reputation purposes but what's more important... our reputation with other countries or ability to stay afloat financially?

    Agree, agree, agree. But I just find the financial issue to be the most important which I why I went with Obama.

    At this point, Bush has done way more damage. But don't count Obama out, the man ain't done yet.

    Realize that the majority of the debt was inevitable with the recession when Obama took office. When the economy hits recession, revenue drops like a rock from where it would be without the recession for obvious reasons. You really cannot judge Obama's debt at all until the final story is done.

    I personally don't blame Obama for the debt. As you said that was inevitable. However spending like he has in the middle of a recession just makes things worse.
