    I've been a lurker here for some time and thoroughly enjoy the discussions between the two sides. To those who are anti-Obama, please assess the George W. Bush presidency. How do you rate his presidency – better than Obama? Worse? Why?

    Please, anti-Obama posters only, I will post a question later for pro-Obama posters. No smart ass comments. Thank you.

    Definitely against the N.D.A.A. provisions approved by this president and unsatisfied in general with his performance in the post.

    'W' was a near-total disaster and it would be very difficult to imagine anyone worse.

    Bush was a mediocre President who spent too much money and was destroyed by the media. Obama is a poor president who spends WAAAAAAY to much money and is glorified by the media.

    They are the 2nd and 3rd worst Presidents of my lifetime - behind Carter.

    If Obama can keep his partisan control freak ego in check and actually try to work with the Republicans and get spending under control - he could leapfrog W with ease (as long as Obamacare doesn't totally destroy the nation - which it could). My guess is that he will never be able to compromise as he is a radical leftist by nature and unable to work with anyone who doesn't bow to his every whim.

    I pray he will put our Nation ahead of his ideology and prove me wrong.

    Bush was bad, I didn't like his creation of Homeland Security. Obama is absolutely the worst thing to ever happen to the U.S.A. I hope freedom and Liberty can survive another 4yrs of his socialist policy. By fundamentally changing America he meant destroy liberty and our Constitution. He will go down in history as the first UnAmerican President. Pray for us.

    Bush was a very good president who was called on to make some tough choices. He actually did get us out of a recession. And without spending 6 trillion dollars. For most of his presidency the UE rate was under 6%. Inflation and interest rates were low. There were no terrorist attacks after 9/11, due to his policies. He removed Saddam Hussein, a major fomenter of terrorism for 20 years. He got Ghaddafi to give up his nuclear weapons program. He won the war in Iraq and set the peace terms. And that was after the Democrats were declaring "The war is lost." He unseated the Taliban. He displayed true leadership, which means making hard decisions that weren't very popular. He employed more blacks in his administration than any other. Yes, he did make some bad choices. Ben Bernanke. Steel tariffs. Auto bailout.

    Obama has been a clear and consistent disaster in every way. Every policy is a failure.
