"Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. No"
It`s the president that writes the budget, and with congress in Bushes pocket they absolutely granted his budget request 100%. So the blame with Bush is accurate.
One year in office won`t change 8 years of Republican f**k-ups.
Believe me, I understand you completely. It was a piss-poor choice on both sides of the ballot. I actually wasn`t that disappointed when Obama won. I figured that with a huge Democrat majority in congress, the economy was going into the dumper no matter who won. If McCain had won, he`d sign all the crap that came out of congress so he could look like he was being bipartisam, and the Republicans would be blamed for the mess. Now the blame will fall entirely on the Democrats where it belongs.
The president always gets more credit/blame than he deserves for the economy. It`s congress that controls taxes and spending and, therefore, the economy. The economy turned up under Clinton only after the Republicans took over congress in `95, and it went into the dumper after the Democrats took it back in `07.
I`m not interested in arguing the point, but Clinton did finalize the NAFTA deal, and that cost a lot of working people their jobs.Doesn`t strike me as prosperity. But then maybe it`s easy not to have noticed that if you weren`t in the workforce at the time.
i notice how most of the responses here also very much depend on geographic location. in the us alone, southern and midwestern americans are more willing to place bush and obama on the same level. easterners are more likely to flat out say no to bush.
but as my opinion, cmon people, the obama man has barely had one year in office and is only getting settled. and imho, the reps have been able to etch into his celebrity reputation because it was so exposed- of course its going to lose ground to a more realistic level! give the man a more realistic time period to figure out his presidency b4 you want another person at the helm.
i remember it took clinton time b4 his work really brought us prosperity.
Seems so harmless by comparison, doesn`t he?
How the hell could I have voted McCain?
"Ending don`t ask don`t tell..."Hasn`t done that yet.
"ATTEMPTING to get health care reform..."Nothing accomplished.
"has an actual exit strategy with Iraq..."What is it? We`re still there!
"Guantanamo bay..."Still open.
"allowing cubans to visit their family members..." Woo hoo! Hey, at least it`s something to brag about!
"OBAMA RULES!"Actually, he WANTS to rule, but that little inconvenience of the Constitution is standing in his way. Don`t worry, he`s working on it.
"Its become a fad to hate him because people are stupid. Unless you have a legitimate reason."I have plenty of reasons to DISAGREE with him, but I don`t hate him the way you hate Bush. Obama isn`t a leader; he`s an agitator. Agitators don`t solve anything, they just demand solutions. He`s never run anything in his life except his mouth, and he needs a teleprompter for that.
No. I do not miss you Mr. ex president!
Really? his first year of presidency he ignored facts about pending attacks and 9/11 happened, it was only AFTER that that he decided to step up security.
In obamas first year he LISTENED to reports about pending attacks and a terrorist bombing was diverted...
too bad his "Education" program only taught you to forget history older than a facebook post
do you realize all politician are crooks
yeha kinda like a roman Emperor
ha you got owned
Correct me if I`m wrong here, but McCain also had a health care plan, one that would be viable compared to Obama`s; and up until the Massachusetts` election, the Dems had a super majority in the Senate, that is 60 Dems to 40 GOPs. And in the case of a super majority the Dems would be able to walk all over the GOPs. Even so now, a 59-41 majority, the Dems could still walk over any opposition. So why can`t they? If you want to blame anyone for blocking health care, blame the progressive Dems. But you know, you actually have to use your brain if you want to figure that out...
Hey, at least it really was a door. It was in China, and the door happened to be locked.
Obama, on the other hand, tied to go through a WINDOW at the White House. Of, course, you would have no way of knowing that unless you watched Fox News.
The same MSM that looped the Bush incident over and over and over again to try to make him look stupid covered up for the boy genius Obama. They`re doing it still.
That said, it hasn`t been a disaster yet like Bush`s. GTFO, Dubyah.
Die die DIIIE!!
He could replace Simon on "American Idol!" ;-)
I do kind of miss making fun of his dumb ass. .
Maybe if we could get him into a public position that doesn`t have any real political power... that might be fun.
