    Started new military aggressions against country or countries that didn't attack us? Check, Bush and Obama.
    Passed bailouts for banks and the rich? Check. Bush and Obama.
    Passed tax cuts for the rich? Ding ding!! Bush AND Obama.
    Left the border wide open? Of course. Bush and Obama.
    Passed bloated new gov't spending? Oh yeah. Bush (DHS) and Obama (Obamacare).
    Saw Americans get poorer in his most recent time in office? Yep. Bush 07-09, Obama entire time in office.
    Responsible for tyrants being killed? Yep. Bush and Obama. Saddam, Bin Laden.
    Got punked by China? Need we review all the times? W and H did it. H meaning Hussein, not Herbert.
    Ivy League grads? Yep. Bush and Obama.
    Vacationed and golfed non stop? Of course, both of 'em.
    Kept or passed Patriot Act? Yes. Both.
    Kept or Gitmo open? Yes. Both of 'em.
    Further polarized America?? Ha!! An understatement!! Yes, both did that too.

    So.....since left wingers hated Bush so much, I ask, why will then STILL vote for Obama, aka Bush #3, in 2012? Are they THAT brainwashed?????

    Oh....wait....they'll blame the republicans for forcing Obama to act like Bush against his own will, even when the Dems controlled the House and Senate from Jan 2009- Jan 2011.

    They're like Obama loving zombies.

    But in contrast.......

    Only Obama threw cops under the bus
    Only Obama supported Islamic terrorists in Libya
    Only Obama sued private companies to force them into union states
    Only Obama allowed guns to be given to Mexican cartels which killed 2 cops later
    Only Obama glorified communist tyrants on his Christmas tree

    The differences are many

    I think you forgot to contrast. Anyone, left-wing or otherwise, who is looking for the candidate least like GWB (for example, in the tax cuts for the rich area) will have an easy choice in 2012.

    To suggest that Obama and Bush played similar roles in the Bush tax cuts, the Patriot Act, and Guantanamo Bay is disingenous in the extreme, as is equating the Iraq war to US intervention in Libya. And I think you'll find very few liberals who are upset that Obama graduated from an Ivy League institution or that he "left the border wide open".

    Oh really? Well feel free to point out which of the above similarities are FALSE.

    And LadyLib, bottom line, under Obama's watch, everything negavite about Bush has continued.

    He's one of two things:

    - Bush 3
    - The most spineless man to ever occupy that office

    Which is it?

    It's hyperbolic out of context bullshit.

    It's like saying "Bush has 2 eyes..Obama has 2 eyes...See Obama is just like Bush!"

    But I am betting you voted Gore then Kerry..right?

    OH!!!!!!! So, once again, it's "not Obamas fault".

    Sure, every single negative aspect of Bush has been repeated by Obama. But...not His fault.

    Obama had the power to veto all that shit. To say no to bombing Pakistan and Libya. To seal the border. To veto bailouts and tax cuts for the rich. To not pass another bloated federal bill.

    OBAMA had a choice, and chose the Bush'en Path (HAHA!!).

    No more excuses for Him please.

    You lefties are so fucking brainwashed by this man it's pathetic.

    So you didn't vote for Gore or Kerry.

    Hence..either you shouldn't be upset.

    Or your logic is specious.

    Bush was left Iraq by his dad and Clinton, he finished the job.
    Bush was set up with 9/11 by Clinton, he took on the job.
    Bush left Afghanistan for Obamination, Obamination had big dreams for the craphole and like usual failed.
    Bush gave a win in Iraq to Obamination, obamination took credit for it.
    Bush's economy went south as soon as Democrats took control of the HoR, Obamination made it worse.
    Bush expanded the Govt, Obamination went crazy expanding the Govt compared to Bush.
    Bush didn't blame Clinton for 9/11, economy, etc.....Obamination still blames Bush 3 years into the job.
