    What did Bush do to destroy the economy? During his last 2 years in office, the Democrats controlled the House and Senate. Your ill informed. Senator Barney Frank, a Democrat, was largely responsible for the housing crash and the Freddie Mac/Fannie Mae fiasco that crushed the economy. Bush got blamed because he was President. He tried to stop what the democrats were doing. But his efforts got stonewalled. Again, I ask, what did Bush do to destroy the economy? Name 1 thing.

    One thing? Are you serious? How about cutting taxes to people who did not need it. Or what about the 2 wars that increased the deficit to 7+ trillion dollars?

    That's subjective based on you're political views. It's a fact that Obama doesn't understand economics, and there is little that he does understand. Give me one good thing he's done, and I'll give you 10 bad things he's done. NOW, I don't think bush was a good president either, he understood what he was doing. Therefore it's subjective based on you're political views.

    My political views aren't liberal/right wing (both are thieves, snakes, insert any derogatory term). We "supposedly" have the smartest people in charge (in both major parties) running this country, yet this country is in debt. I think it's safe to say that neither party understands economics.

    I agree! I hate politics. Why can't a smart person that cares about the general good of the country run? (I sort of know the answer..... Highly organized special interest groups)

    The best qualified to run our country are making Zillions in the private sector. They don't want to be in the White House and have their family go through all that BS.

    [EDITED]I know what I'm about to state is going to tick people off. If you don't want to get upset, skip over this post. YOUVE BEEN WARNED! Having said that, I am utterly amazed at the amount of people who truly believe that the reason our beloved country is in the current mess that it's in is because of George W. Bush. Yet, after 6 years of leadership under the oval office's current occupant, some people flat out refuse to see the damage done to this nation in regard to debt, joblessness, political correctness, and race-relations, to name a few. I don't care whether you're conservative, liberal or independent. You are not helping this nation as a whole by pretending that BHO is faultless or by defending him or his failures because of the symbolism of his election. Now, people love to say (including BHO) that Congress isn't doing its job. Yet, BHO stumps for many of those same members of Congress, and a lot of "we the people" re-elect the very people we claim to not be doing their jobs. Is that Congress' fault or the fault of we the people? Finally, I'm sick and tired of certain people falling for the "conservatives are for the rich" and "liberals are for the little people" crap. Wake the heck up! How is it that rich liberals stand before the little people and claim the other side is only for the rich and powerful when they themselves are rich and powerful? They live in the same neighborhoods, eat at the same restaurants, work in the same sectors, but yet, only the liberal side care for the little people. Really? Unbelievable! Liberals equal "we will do it for you" whereas conservatives equate to "this is how it's done". See the difference? It's a "feed me" vs "showing me how to feed myself" kind of thing. If you're ticked off at what I've posted then you should have skipped over it like I warned you to do beforehand.......Okay, I'm done venting. Forgive me for any typos. I'll clean up any errors later on. C-ya!

    I agree. Politics from both sides are responsible for the political correctness you mentioned, and it drives me crazy! If the democrats have a good idea, why the hell can't the republicans vote for it? And if the republicans have a good idea, why the hell can't the democrats vote for it? It's sending our country to hell! Also, the idea that the liberal socialists have that higher taxes and more regulation will grow the economy is 5-year-old talk. It's obvious those people are out of touch with reality.( while they ironically claim fiscal conservatives are out of touch with reality by not support a higher government price control on labor) I recently heard on NPR(of all places!!) about a small manufacturer that was having to pay 51% in cooperate taxes! Now think about that... The business owner said the high tax rate he had to pay was hindering him from hiring more, and that he totally understands why larger cooperations are moving to countries where the cooperate tax rates are well below 20%.

    A polite way of saying "same excrement, different president."

    My political leaning shall forever remain to myself as invariably, arguing with people on the internet is a futile exercise, ergo:

    Joe: "No way, no way. Tried it once, doesn't work. You got four guys all fighting over who's gonna be Mr. Black, but they don't know each other, so nobody wants to back down. No way. I pick. You're Mr. Pink. Be thankful you're not Mr. Yellow."

    Everything you said is subjective also ! It may be FACT to you because it's your opinion, but there is no FACT, that he doesn't understand economics. I'm not necessarily an Obama fan, but don't misrepresent what FACTS are. And btw...how was the economy when Bush left office ?

    During the campaign, Obama said of Bush:
    “The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion dollars for the first 42 presidents — number 43 added $4 trillion dollars by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child.

    That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.”

    -Barack Hussein Obama
    At a campaign event in Fargo, ND on July 3, 2008
    All Obama has done is run the deficit and national debt up even further in his never ending quest to expand the government and entitlement programs, to kill jobs, provide tax payer funded bailouts for the banking, housing, insurance and automakers industries, foist an unmanageable "affordable" healthcare plan on America, and create scandal after scandal after scandal.

    Thetotal debt — counting money the government owes to itself through the Social Security and other trust funds — has now reached $17.6 trillion, an increase of 65 percent.

    If Bush was "irresponsible" and "unpatriotic", what would you call Obama?

    He has loaded up every child in this nation with more debt than any President in history. With his policies and the threat of more such policy, he has destroyed more wealth than any human being in history, which is always what happens when you set out to redistribute wealth: you end up destroying it. He has said there is nothing exceptional about America, something no other president has ever said and something which alone suggests he is a historically poor president.

    Bu but Obama said that he's one of the top three presidents... How dare you talk that way about one of the top three presidents! Al Sharpton is the only person that I know of that would make a better president.

    Back in a small pub in Galway, my da once told me....never discuss politics with someone you're not ready to punch....and proceeded to tell my brothers to punch me dead on the mouth...which they willingly complied.

    Tough lesson well learned.
    Sorry, do I understand you correctly? Your father ordered your brothers to punch you because he didn't agree with your political views? And they did?

    I hope you called the police.

    Yes he did. Yes they did. No I didn't.

    I was making loud and inflammatory statements about the IRA, Irish Republic, and Northern Ireland. He had cautioned me against it before. I didn't.

    That was the equivalent of starting up an argument regarding Gaza in the midle of Jerusalem. Not a good idea.
