    The truth is in the pudding, as they say.

    History will view the Bush economy middling at best.

    Again the myth that government or the President "creates" jobs other than government jobs

    Business creates jobs

    And of course.. Bush did not have to contend with anything negative during his 8 years... it was all easy time for him to do as he pleased... and the economy under Clinton's time was all rose petals and perfume that had no ill effects moving forward :rolleyes:

    It's the bullshit posts like this that really show the true ignorance... quick snapshots rather than the big picture

    Was Bush a great Prez?? Hell no... Was he horrid and the devil the leftists try and portray him as?? Hell no... And lord knows Clinton was not the great Prez they love to paint him as...

    Did you hear healthcare costs went up 191% on Bush's watch?

    And oil was $2 and on his watch $4.

    And a surplus when he came in and a debt when he left.

    A working army when he came in, a broken army now.

    You can have all those other points, but don't discredit our servicemen and women, ok?

    And it isn't "army" - it is military. American military, made up of branches of service, of which the Army is one.

    Feel free to be partisan, but try to maintain the respect of those serving to protect your right to be so.

    Thank you.

    This thread highlights a really strange thing I've noticed... dead horse beating.

    Who's winning here?

    Not the beater.

    Not the audience.

    Certainly not the horse.

    Who doesn't know a bunch of people think Bush sucks? I mean, is there ANYONE that doesn't know this? He's out of office and can't be re-elected to anything. What's the point? Are liberals just trying to make sure everyone knows how angry they are?

    You've got the presidency.

    You've got the congress.

    You're pissed off.

    Got it.

    Hi stupid,

    did you know that when Bush left office Oil was at about $1.75 per gallon.

    And I saw the math on a site, i'll try to research it...when Bush took office Gas was around 1.45 a gallon national average....when he left office it was around 1.75...however if you take into effect inflation, the 1.75 a gallon today was worth something like $1.38 back then.

    So really gas was lowered under Bush's watch

    The military was severly abused by Bush and they say so themselves.
