Dubya or Obama...?
as clulessly stupid as Obama might be, it would be incredibly difficult for him to outdo the dumb-shit motherfuckerness of Bush's Iraq misadventure...
Bush II, no question, ignoring al Qaeda to send others to die in Iraq AND the failure to fund NOLA restoration project. The ACE took the blame but the Bush boy cut funding every year prior to Katrina. GHWB & Clinton funded all requests.
Corps of Engineers Repairing New Orleans Levee System
On June 1, 2006, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers -- the agency that built them -- stood up and took total blame for the failure of the New Orleans levee system during Hurricane Katrina. The failed levees were considered largely responsible for the catastrophic flooding that left 80 percent of the city underwater. Since making its first-ever admission of design deficiency, the U.S. Corps has poured its heart, soul and billions of dollars into the repair and improvement of the New Orleans levee and flood control system.
I chose "undecided", President Obama still has one more term to serve in order to fairly compare him to his predecessor. I will say that the previous Administration did get us into this cluster fuck. Government grew under the previous Administration and is still growing under the current Administration. Civil liberties shrunk under the previous Administration and is still shrinking under the current Administration. Basically I'm not happy with either of them.
sorry, but i remain unopinionated uintil i've been 'dicided'
Looks like Iraq and New Orleans are distant memories.
Should have a 'both'. Then I could vote. As it is, no.
Foreign affairs - Bush (not that Obama has done much better no matter how many times he bows)
Domestic affairs...close tie...but Obama is probably worse as we have yet to feel the largess of his policies.
If you check the misery index.... Obama wins that by almost 5 points in less than 1/2 the time.. (and not in the good way)
