    Now can you lefties do the same for your man? Or are ideological blinders tied too tightly to your face that you can't see or admit the facts of our current situation?

    Obama was elected to get the car out of the "ditch"

    Gonna be kinda hard to do when he has nearly blown the motor.

    Some of these issues are so serious that there just isn't room for blind partisanship.

    what exactly did President Bush do that you felt was wrong?

    and Obama was not elected to get the car out of the garage imo....we did not even know we had a financial problem during 90% of the election campaigning period, and we did not know how serious until President bush came on the television about 2- 3 weeks before the election and told us all that our country was going down like a rock, IF the TARP Bailout was not authorized by congress....and he explained to us about Mortgage Backed Securities (which i had never heard of) being the same as Toxic Assets.....

    I personally ran to the bank and took out a few thousand to keep under the bed....President Bush scared the pajesus out of me! :eek:

    People had their minds made up to vote for Obama LONG BEFORE they even knew we had a crisis or what the depth of the crisis really was....

    they didn't elect him to solve this financial crisis....he got elected on the' I am not Bush' scenario imho....

    Good post. Yes, the economy didn't become an issue in the election until September, 2 months before voting. That's when McCain "parachuted in" to fix things:
    Capitol Briefing - McCain, Cornyn Engage in Heated Exchange
    :lol:
    ALSO, the Repubs want the electorate to beleive that an economic down-turn, the likes of which are only equalled by the Great Depression, should be over with in a couple of years :doubt: is laughable. :cuckoo:

    I agree with this. Obama is all style no substance. We're paying for it now.

    I had several problems with Bush

    Immigration
    Tarp
    Reckless spending not vetoed
    Should have focused more on Afg instead of Iraq. Although I don't disagree with Iraq
    Not forcing the issue on Freddie and Fannie

    I don't disagree with why you think he was elected although my opinion differs slightly. Having said that he has not done his job imo and has instead made it worse.

    Sure.

    No Public option for health care.
    Caved to the GOP blackmail on tax cuts.
    Recovery Act was way too small.
    Is caving now on the debt talks!

    That's just off the top of my head.

    You can admit that Bush failed in many ways (in 8 years in office), but you don't even list one thing?

    And then you expect others to admit the same thing about Obama (after only 2 years and 5 1/2 months in office)?

    In general, I think the jury is out on any president who hasn't even served a full term in office. But I must admit that when Bush made the decision to invade Iraq in March 2003, I was pretty sure that he was going to screw this country royally. And guess what? I was right!
