    If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how he inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?

    If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?

    If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan's holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?

    If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?

    If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?

    If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?

    If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia , would you have approved?

    If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?

    If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes, would you have approved?

    If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?

    If George W. Bush had mis-spelled the word "advice" would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoe as proof of what a dunce he is?

    If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?

    If George W. Bush's administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11?

    If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans, would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?

    If George W. Bush had created the position of 32 Czars who report directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in America , would you have approved.

    If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?

    If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?

    If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?

    So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything?

    I always wondered what would have happened if JFK had become impotent?

    I bet he would have actually worked longer at being President than he did getting laid.

    Answer the questions. Though on second thought since it will all be lies don't bother. You liberal kool aid drinkers simply amaze me with what it is you supposedly found bad about Bush but can not find a single thing Obama is doing bad. Retard comes to mind, Idiotic dumb ass is another. And of course Partisan hack is the big one.

    And I just love how Bush was bad but the defense for Obama is always "well BUSH did it". And with a straight face.

    OH Jeeze....here we go again

    Spouting right wingnut nonsense and expecting serious responses. I am not going to refute point by point, it is not worth the effort.

    But....George Bush did use a teleprompter like every president used a teleprompter or written notes, Bush took AF1 on more trips to Crawford than any other president took trips, Bush wasted fuel to go to the Olympics, Bush reduced retirement holdings of anyone in the stock market, Bush kissed the Saudi king and held his hand......

    We have been through this crap a thousand times.

    Try something original

    Yup, more left wing excuses.
    "Sure Obama bowed and scraped to every totalitatarian and monarch but Bush shook hands with heads of state."
    "Sure Obama wasted time and money flying to Copenhagen on a narcissistic fool's errand, but Bush once flew to LA."
    It is the same moral equivalencies we've seen between the US and the Soviets. And it speaks to the moral bankruptcy of the left.

    Are you asking for a serious response to claims like Obama is the FIRST president to use a teleprompter, that he is the first president to take a vacation, or that he is the first president to go to the theater?

    You see, when wingnuts hurl out crap like this, they simply lose credibility. There are some legitimate concerns to be voiced, but when you lump in silly crap like this, people just immediately write you off as a wingnut and the REAL concerns just get blown off as just more wingnut rambling.

    It's stupid.

    If you want to be taken seriously, and if you want your concerns to be taken seriously DON'T water them down with all this silly crap that only makes YOU look disreputable.

    if he had done such i would not approve, HOWEVER Obama has not doubled our History's national debt in one year, not even Bush's national debt in one year....

    you are misusing the term DEBT, you should be using the term 'Budget Deficit' not national debt or debt if you are implying this comment refers to Obama.

    President Bush, doubled our History's National Debt from creation as a country, in just 8 years.
