I guess I don’t really judge these people on a personal level, if someone is an a-hole and they’re a great president I’d much rather have that than a nice guy who sucks at it.

Just my personal belief.

I owe you an apology. This is no great excuse, but I misread what you wrote late at 1 am and responded to what I thought you wrote. I am sorry.

I am one conservative who can admit when I am wrong. Something the liberal left never does. They continue to throw darts (like Obama) even when they are clearly wrong…why? because they have no rational argument.

One thing I will always respect Bush for, he didn’t stoop to such low levels like Obama and Clinton blaming everyone else for what is wrong in the world. Bush was a class act because he wouldn’t take the bait and try to destroy people…just to look good…

I put right out in the open 20 similarities Bush and Obama share and that’s somehow me taking attention away from Obama? That’s interesting how you come to that conclusion.

I thought Bush was a disaster, I think Obama is a disaster. Every president gets worse, Bush was much worse than Clinton, Obama is much worse than Bush, happens every time as the power of the executive branch and power of gov’t expands.

Lol, though I’ll be honest this is the first time I’ve compiled an enormous list of similarities between Bush and Obama and been called an “Obama apologist” for it. He’s an absolute trainwreck top to bottom, don’t change my opinion to better suit your argument sir.

Brian Lee,

What I’m saying is there’s not one thing about the Republican party that’s conservative, not one thing. So if you vote Republican than there’s not one thing about you that’s conservative.

I’m not sure how you take Obama for being weak, I take him as a warmonger and the evidence supports me. He’s increased warmongering in Afghanistan, he’s spread the warmongering into Pakistan and pulling out of Iraq means nothing because Bush signed the pullout agreement in December before Obama took office. Obama has taken every bit as “strong” of a stance against Iran and North Korea as Bush did.

Michael you are very good at keeping the attention off Obama. But the fact of the matter is, he Is president now and is accountable for his actions. Bush at this point in his first term had 55 percent approval rating. Right now, Obama has 47 percent approval. He is off to a horrible start because he is working hard to force his agenda on the majority of Americans who want nothing to do with his “fundamental” change.

If you think Bush was bad, then you are just sticking your head in the sand about Obama. It is a travesty he has added 1.7 trillion to the deficit this year. Everything Brian said is spot on. His policies are not appreciated by the world….see UN. His inaction in Afghanistan is putting our troops and country at peril. Health care is going to cost us more than you can imagine…and that isn’t a good thing. Over 70 percent of the nation does not agree with global warming…but he wants to force cap and trade on us to redistribute our wealth.

The list is endless and in the end you will not be better off then when he took office. No one likes him, but he has the media protecting him….

Oh well, you Obama left wing apologists will not see the truth of what he is doing to our country…destroying it…probably on purpose…

But we don,t have a great choice at present hopefully some the talent coming through will have more leadership abilities.There is certainly going to be a need for a strong leader after Obama.We were told that because of his “presence” all the world wars and aggression would cease, but because of his weakness things have got decidedly worse in the 10 months of his presidency.

1.) Expanding the federal budget

2.) Appoint lobbyists to gov’t positions

3.) Expand the welfare budget

4.) Spread warmongering

5.) Bail out corporate america

6.) Take in record tax revenues

7.) Grow the national debt to new records

8.) Keep our borders wide open

9.) Support the Patriot Act

10.) Arrest those against you, claim dissenter as possible terrorists.

11.) Use american taxpayer dollars to give healthcare to the uninsured

12.) Against gay marriage

13.) In favor of holding suspects without trial and torturing them in foreign countries.

14.) Foreign nationbuilding at the expense of the US taxpayer.

15.) Provide funding to Israel at US taxpayer expense

16.) In favor of Affirmative Action

17.) Support religious based profiling

18.) Warrantless wire tapping and the ability for gov’t to spy on its citizens

19.) Invent new czar positions to expand power of the executive branch

20.) Keep all drugs illegal

Well there’s 20 similarities off the top of my head that are leading to the destruction of this country, but if that’s not enough for you to even question leaving your party, nothing is.

Obama got a free pass,similar to the Czars that he has employed, but wait till his bubble bursts with the press then you will see stuff start to surface.Thanks Micheal can you ask me to do this on a regular basis,it is important to get the message out!

There’s not one part of the Bush administration/Republican Congress from 2000-2006 that could be considered conservative, they did absolutely nothing to pull gov’t back.

You are right. I have always said the last 2 years of the Bush presidency wasn’t his best. So, no argument from me.

However, my statements are about the here and now and the future of our country. In case you haven’t noticed Obama is president now, not Bush.

It amazes me how this administration and congress won’t take ownership over anything. The agenda being pushed right now needs to be stopped…Hopefully the elections in a few weeks will be the start. Also, hopefully this health care fiasco will be stopped dead in its tracks….It’s a bad bad deal what they are trying to push on us…Socialism…

Bail out corporate america?

Expand gov’t pork spending?

Increase welfare?

Increase the size and power of gov’t?

Which is it?
