    The Obama ran against the policies and actions of the Bush Administration.

    His message of Hope and Change was predicated on the promise that He would bring "Hope" to the country by Changing those actions and policies - that he would deliver us from the ideological evil that was GWB.

    Questions:
    -Which of the specified GWB policies/actions has The Obama changed?
    -How did He change it?
    -How has that change brought the improvements He promised?

    Please be sepcific in your responses, and be sure to show causation.

    Once a Commie, always a Commie. He saw his opening and he made a run for it. Chest and armpit deep now in Obama's debris and destruction, the country has to figure a way to get rid of the cause and dig its way out.

    He's doubled and in some cases tripled down on Bushs' Policies...while chastising Bush in the process.

    Obama accepted ownership with the oath...and has failed.

    That simple

    He put some teeth behind President Bushes 9-11 rhetoric. In that we would go after the perps of 9-11 no matter where they were hiding. Evidenced by his willingness to attack the Pastun area of Pakistan (although Bush didn't really have the advanced drones Obama has, he was hand off the tribal area) as well as authorizing the attack deep inside Pakistan to kill OBL.

    President Obama has proven to be a politician capable of most any lie. I'm still glad he is president and not McCain.

    He pushed for and stood behind the healthcare legislation which is a big win for him. We will have to wait to see how that plays out in the long run, but the fact is that even if you don't like it, it is a step in the right direction and we can make changes to any parts of it that are not working. Next, he got us out of Iraq. Bush had plans to do this, but Obama actually did it. Overall, he hasn't changed much though. Up til now he has supported the extension of the Bush tax cuts and even added a few of his own. In many ways, he's acted like a Republican, yet the Republicans continue to try to convince us that he is a flaming liberal, possibly the most liberal ever. It's a riot.

    OK, but...
    Did The Obama run against GWB's policies/actions on this issue?

    He followed Bush's plan. No change in policy/action.

    So far, there's not been many (any?) examples of how The Obama has actually changed any of the things He ran against, much less how those changes have delivered the "hope" He promised.

    Yes, the topic was brought up several times during the campaign and debates. Several Republicans including McCain criticized him for his position.
