    Republicans like to say that Democrats treated Bush with the same hatred and virulence they admit to treating Obama.

    History is not going to bear that out.

    First, Bush got everything he wanted:
    Tax cuts that helped mainly the rich
    Huge no bid contracts for friends
    A drugs for votes bill costing possibly trillions
    The invasion of Iraq
    Bank bailouts
    evisceration of OSHA

    I honestly can't think of anything he didn't get. And everything he did was a failure and a disaster. And caused terrible damage. Many right wingers will say he helped Africans with AIDS, but even there, he cut funding for any clinic that offered family planning or dispensed condoms. "Condoms". Besides complete abstinence, condoms are the only effective method for preventing contracting AIDS. Conservatives can't even keep their kids here from having babies. Ask St. Sarah. How many there died because of Bush Policies. Nothing he touched escaped getting damaged.

    And look at Obama. Got Bin Laden. Passed a gutted Health Care Bill. Even though it was gutted by Republicans, it still managed to help millions of Americans. Republicans couldn't even help the victims of Katrina. He removed a brutal dictator while not losing a single American life, unlike Bush who lost thousands and tens of thousands more were maimed. The cost of their care will be passed on to Obama just like all the other Republican disasters.

    Even though Bush ignored warnings about 9/11, Democrats still supported him.

    Republicans said they were out to get Obama even before he was sworn in. They keep talking about his "agenda" even if they can't tell what it is beyond "he's a Marxist" or some nonsense.

    Clearly, Obama has been able to do more good for America, even though Republicans have fought him every step of the way, than Bush did, even with support from both sides.

    By the time Bush left office, his low approval ratings were because he was inept.

    If Obama is not elected, Republicans will go down as the worst party in the history of the country. Because Obama has changed our foreign policy completely by doing what Bush did, but with no American deaths at almost no cost. Republicans will enact his entire jobs plan and take credit for it just like they did when Obama took out Bin Laden. We know that's what will happen. Over a hundred Republican congressmen have already taken credit for jobs in their districts created with Obama's Stimulus funds.

    With Obama gone, Republican will enact every single one of Obama's policies, especially his jobs policies, and Republicans will try to take credit for them.

    Republicans think it will be forgotten, but it won't. Obama has already wrote two best sellers. He will make three times the money of Bill Clinton. He will be seen as a good president who could have been great but was stopped by a Confederate Conservative Party that loved America less than it hated him.

    Which comedian did you steal this rant from? :confused:

    You almost never provide a source and everyone knows you're not nearly smart enough nor creative enough to have written that all by your lonesome.

    He didn't get to dismantle Social Security, and he didn't get to really address the immigration issue in the way he wanted to - his own party was against him on that one.

    Oh, so he didn't get to dismantle Social Security and he didn't get to put his secretary on the Supreme Court. I guess he didn't get everything he wanted.

    He also said in his book he was saddened that there were NO WMDs in Iraq. For those who say there were, but they were "hidden", Bush says there weren't. And believe me, he had everyone looking. He had plenty of reason to have everyone he could possibly get to look, look.

    Republicans vs. democrats reminds a lot about europe in the 30s this days with the finacial crisis. With nationalist and communist forces in each end.

    Republicans representing the nationalists wanting war and invasions, closing the borders and deporting immigrants. Competing in being most radical, the woman suggesting waterboarding the worst of them all. Angry at muslims and mexicans as nationalists were to jews in the 30s. No muslims in the army Cain said.

    Democrats the communists wanting to tax the rich and a strong government that can redistribute wealth. Wanting a strong leader. Supporting wall street rebels and friendly towards more immigration as Marx. Wanting free healthcare and education. Obama has been president for three years now why hasn’t he taxed the rich yet?

    Ron Paul however seperates from the rest being the only sensible candidate, but the communists and nationalist dosen’t like him, they want a revolution

    Will it be a communist or a nationalist revolution, time will show:razz:???
    If Ron Paul goes for president as an individual could he have a chanche, no individual has been elected president ever?

    There's going to be a lot of Obama supporters pissed off that they can't post that long-assed laundry list anymore of stuff they claim Obama has accomplished
