    When Bush doubled the deficit in 8 years that was BAD. Obama doubling the new already doubled deficit in 4 years is GOOD.

    When Bush agreed to help push for bailing out the banks, that was BAD. Obama creating a bailout for Car companies and not letting anyone read the bill, was GOOD.

    When Bush supported the Afghan war that was BAD. When Obama supports the Afghan war, that is GOOD.

    When Bush was President and the unemployment rate went to 7 percent, that was BAD. Obama is President, promised it would not pass 8 percent if his stimulus was passed, it is now almost 10 percent and still climbing and that is GOOD.

    When Bush was President, giving loans to people that could not pay them back was BAD. ( even though he had nothing to do with it) Obama is President and supports the continued giving of loans to the same people that can not pay the loans back and that is GOOD.

    When Bush was President demanding Iran fess up and be stopped from building nukes was BAD. Obama is President and threatens Iran and that is GOOD.

    When Bush was President, any domestic terrorists caught were all set up by the Government. Obama is now President and all domestic terrorists are REALLY terrorists. Including people that are not even terrorists, like military veterans, abortion protesters, people that believe in God and being armed and are republican. Anyone that disagrees with Obama on any issue.

    When Bush was President indefinite detention of Terror suspects was BAD, Unconstitutional and illegal. Now that Obama is President holding them indefinitely is GOOD. Using, I might add , Congressional Authority passed under Bush when the left said it was BAD.

    Under Bush 55 Republican Senators had total control, according to the left, of the Senate. Under Obama the democrats have 58 Democratic Senators, 2 Independents that vote with the Democrats and up to 6 Republicans that will usually vote with the democrats, but the Republicans are blocking all legislation.

    Under Obama 265 Democratic House of Representative members are opposed by 170 Republican members. It only takes 218 votes to pass anything in the house, yet the Republicans are blocking all important legislation in the House.

    Under Bush Iraq was lost, no chance to ever leave, a quagmire, Under Obama Iraq is a stable Country able to actually preform its own security both internal and on the Borders. Never mind that all the developments that lead to this occurred under Bush's watch.

    Under Bush, sending more troops to Afghanistan was the worst idea ever floated. Under Obam not only have thousands more troops been sent, but even more are being asked for and this is GOOD.

    I wonder what I have missed?

    Change you can believe in.

    He responds to all the time, usually by using the word 'inherited'.

    as a democrat i am amazed at what is going on...why are people focusing on acorn..which in the total picture receives very little funding from the federal government? many of these issues are simply what i call..."isses of distraction"...ie. having a beer with the professor and cop..but people focused right in on that...while 3 billion went to clear car inventories...what could 3 billion have done to futher research into a better hybrid or alternative fuel?

    the arrests in pittsburg, shocking, flashes of chicago 68...but i am for free speech, even when i dont agree with the speaker.

    why are the wars still going on..obama had plans would hit the ground running....seems he has tripped out of the gate...

    why are the american people ignoring the wars...no longer do the drums beat over the death count....seems the veterans of these wars are all but forgotten?

    what became of the message of unification of this country? we are seemingly more divided than ever..but i do lay that at the feet of the talking heads...division is their bread and butter. it is up to the american people to take charge and stop listening to talking heads.

    Because ACORN has commited thousands of crimes, its called voter fraud, because the current president is ACORN, was ACORNS lawyer, Because the current president paid ACORN millions to help get himself elecectd.

    Very little funding, I would not call over billion dollars in stimulus money for a corrupt organization that Obama used to get elected a "little money".

    "It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge. War endures. As well ask men what they think of stone. War was always here. Before man was, war waited for him. The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner. That is the way it was and will be....
    War is the ultimate game because war is at last a forcing of the unity of existence. War is god."

    Bones, elections have consequences, for the 'winners' and 'losers.' Obama had the most liberal record in US Congress, yet ran as a 'hope' & 'change' centrist. He isn't. He said that he was post-partisan, yet with first meeting told the 'other party' to sit down & shut up, 'we won.' That started off the continuing schism within the country, politically. At the same time, he really seems to believe that from him, rhetoric will trump practicality, it's not working for the far left, the right, or the independents.

    He said he wouldn't raise taxes on the middle class, yet we can see already that taxes are increasing, with promises of more from cap & trade, and remarks Friday regarding ending 'fossil fuel subsidies', meaning all energy prices are going to skyrocket-that's a tax. Same with forcing people to buy health insurance, it's a tax, as Stephanopolis pointed out last week.

    He said Afghanistan was where our focus should be, now he is disowning his own policies. He's embolding our enemies and ditching our allies.

    While claiming to be post-racial, his minions have been anything but. In fact to disagree with his policies is to be called a racist. In a little less than 10 months we've seen unprecedented spending, plans for more, a takeover of financials, automakers, we've witnessed wholesale firings of executives in those industries while minions of his are put in charge. He's appointed unvetted advisors who want to control the internet, force manufacturing of products they envision, without any data to back up the demand for those products.

    Many just feel something is wrong. Many see fascism beginning, applauded by his true believers. Where it will all go? :confused:
