Day after day reading these threads, I'm constantly seeing critiques of our president met with "But what about Bush" or "Where were you for 8 years under Bush". Then, when someone on the right or a Tea Party supporter suggests we vote in someone more fiscally responsible, more competent, or just simply more transparent than our current politicians, we are met with "Oh you mean like Bush/Cheney/Haliburton/Evil Empire I hate 'em so much". Seeing our liberal friends obviously have little knowledge of federal laws (see immigration debate, Sestak job offer, etc), I thought maybe I should just fill them in. To all the lefties: George W. Bush cannot run for president in 2012. He's not allowed to by law. Presidents are limited to 2 terms. FDR's socialist/borderline communist actions scared Americans so much, that afterwards they passed the law limiting 2 terms to avoid dictatorship should someone like him come along again (Which it has, under Obama). So, from now on, when we say we want someone better, we aren't talking about Bush. We are talking about someone better than Bush, and FAR better than Obama. Mmmkay? When we say we want fiscal responsibility, a secure border, smart diplomacy with aggressive terrorists or terror sponsoring nations, common sense entitlement programs...........we are talking about someone better than Bush, and FAR better than Obama to bring that. Mmmkay? So, just to review: 1. George W. Bush cannot run in 2012. 2. We all want someone better than Bush. 3. We want someone far far better than Obama (you obviously do not). So, back to the debate guys. I hope I cleared up that issue for the left. Bush is gone. And he can't run again. We aren't talking about electing Bush again. And no, not even "Bush's failed policies of the past 8 years!!!". No, we want better than that. We want someone extremely better than Obama. Maybe you will too.
