    AIG pays us back. The forst 50% of tarp saved the economy
    His leadership post 9-11 prevented a more serious economic collapse than we had
    Saddam, gone
    UBL, gone (thanks to water boarding in 2006 as well as Navy seals/CIA)
    His tax rate will be in place for 99% of us
    Sarbanes Oxley, huge success
    His medicare plan was under funded, but also a huge success
    was within 163 billion of a balanced budget, 2007
    Numerous bi partisan legislation events such as No Child left behind, removing Saddam, Etc...
    Budgets through 2008 (BHO signed the 09 budget 3/2009, called the Omnibus bill

    Now how is BHO doing?
    no jobs
    huge debt
    Obama care in which some of his own now want out of some

    It is not even close people

    That is my point
    Many far right conservatives see GWB as a old blue dog Democrat

    Time should be showing all of us just how bad BHO is and how better than the media mandated daily for the last years GWB really was

    .

    One thing is for sure: We'll never get the lives, limbs and minds back of the thousands of American soldiers who should never have been sent to the Iraq & Afghanistan in the first place, nor the 4 TRILLION or so that was borrowed and then spent on those wars. Obama has been weak in getting us out of there, but he didn't put us there in the first place, and no spin can change that fact.

    Think of all the lives and money that could have been saved had we just sent our armchair Rambos instead.

    Another funny jr. post praising President Bush.

    President Bushes legacy will be two fold. First, Iraq. Including but not limited to invading a country that was not planning on attacking us, (nor could have if they wanted to), did not represent a serious or immediate threat to us, did not have the WMD President Bush and hius people claimed, and getting thousands of US soldiers killed. His invasion and occupation is also responsible for an unknown number of innocent Iraqi civilians. Second he presided over the worst economic meltdown since 1929.

    President Obama's is still being written.

    He saved the economy? :lol: You mean the economy his policies helped ruin?
    Within a balanced budget? You mean the budget he un-balanced after Clinton?
    Saddam is gone? Yeah, and so are thousands of American service men and women and countless Iraqi civilians -- all because we invaded a country that was no threat to us.

    Here's something to think about, bub. If Bush hadn't charged up our credit card with two wars, his Medicare prescription plan, and cut taxes TWICE to historic levels (during a war!), we wouldn't be in the mess we're in now.

    Bush will go down in history as one of the worst POTUSs in US history. And he well deserves it. You can bet on that.
