    The left insisted when Bush was elected and sworn in and for the 8 years he was President, that no one could mention Clinton because he was no longer President, that if anyone did they were deflecting and hiding and trying to change the subject. NOW all the left can do is talk about Bush and guess what? He isn't President anymore.

    The left complained about how Bush ran up a deficit, doubling it in 8 years. Yet they fawn all over Obama who will, if given what he wants double the deficit in 4 YEARS.

    The left complained about Bush cutting taxes during a war. Obama cuts taxes DURING a war and they applaud him.

    Bush's last year deficit was about 500 billion, the 1.3 trillion claim involves counting a 750 Billion package the Democrats created and passed. All bad according to the left. Obama in less then 2 months creates an 800 Billion dollar package that is all deficit and the left applauds him.

    The Right still talks about Clinton to this day and did so for after Bush was elected! It is called politics and people in politics like to move the subject off themselves and what better way to do that than blame the last guy.
    Watch the scene in "Traffic" when Michael Douglas's character takes over Brolin's character! That pretty much sums up how the game works.

    You do realize the Right still talks about Clinton to this day because the Left can't stop bringing him up, right?

    Most people will just always blame the President of the other side even when the causative mechanism is totally ambiguous. If things go well while Obama's in office, the right will say it was because of something Bush did, the left will praise Obama; if things go badly under Obama, the right will blame Obama, the left will blame Bush.

    It always come backs to the left! You guys complain about Clinton because we bring it up, got it!
    So, using your logic it is the rights fault we complain about Bush.
    Like I said before it is politics and you need something to complain about!

    I'm sure the left's attempts to deflect and use the "he isn't president anymore" line were pretty lame and pathetic back in February 2001. Most intelligent people probably saw through that just like most intelligent people today are seeing through it when the right says the same thing about Bush.

    But not to worry, as Obama's term moves along the "Bush isn't president anymore" line will become more effective, probably starting right after the mid-term elections.

    I think the gripe is how the money is spent. But yeah, they are hypocrites there. Just like y'all are a bunch of hypocrites with this reinvention of fiscal conservatism in the Republican party.

    Yep, hypocrites there too. Since the right applauded Bush for doing the same I can assume you are praising the president for cutting taxes?

    It's all about where and how the money is being spent.

    The point is both sides are hypocritical ESPECIALLY when power has been transferred to a new party.

    Such is politics.

    Facts in error please correct and resubmit. The $750B bailout package was written by the Bush administration, submitted by them and passed, at least partially through their arm-twisting. The "left" as you so called it was in favor of the bill a necessary evil to get us out of where we found ourselves and still maintain that position.

    Facts again in error. To many in the "left" Bush was never elected first of all. Second, no one I know on the "left" stated you couldn't mention Clinton we just said you couldn't blame him for the failures of the Bush Administration.

    Close but still no cigar. Facts still in error. The "left" complained about Bush cutting taxes for the wealthiest 2percent during wartime. The "left" applauds Obama for at least attempting to keep a campaign promise despite a drastic change in circumstances and allow for a much needed tax cut on middle class.

    Facts not yet in evidence. I would ask you to provide some substantiation for this accusation. One that preferably doesn't come from wing-nut central.

    that you have no point! Your excuse for the right complaining about CLinton is it is the left's fault, because we have no entered the period where republicans are the minority and they have to play the blame game.
    The people on the right complain about us bashing Bush while you complain about Obama. It always goes both ways!

    Usual nonsense from the left, claim everything is incorrect even though it is not. Ohh and by the way provide some evidence Bush helped out the wealthy. His tax cuts were designed to help poor and middle class. They got the biggest cuts by his tax cuts. Explain again how it is ok to over tax people cause they happen to have more money then you?

    Obama plans to spend 3 trillion, that is a fact, he has stated it several different times. The 800 billion bail out is just the start.
