Default slanted for the Glory of the DNC

Bush had one of the strongest economies until the Dem's took control of Congress in 2007.

The Surplus is interesting point, however no remembers Bill Clinton Closing bases and cutting back the Military to a point we were using old equipment in by time of 911. GW had to rebuild the Military to achieve our security goals.

Moving forward to Obama and when he leaves office the true mismanagement of this President will come fully and make Carter look like atop shelf president.

Obama is a afraid of the World and is continuing to say a whole lot of nothing until he is required to comment on a crisis.

Obama has racked up a record breaking Deficit and currently holds the title. At least the GOP is trying to balance the budget and make trade deals that is good for America.

I bet most historians would agree that it is not possible to evaluate a prez until at least a decade or two has passed, if not more. Take Harry Truman, for example. He left office with low approval ratings, but is now well-regarded by both Republicans and Democrats.

It's too soon to be able to evaluate either W Bush or Obama. In fact, fast forward 50 years and don't be surprised if left-wingers look back at W with fondness. That is kind of what has happened w/ JFK (in reverse). JFK was considered a liberal prince in his day, but now right-wingers look back and note that JFK was a)NRA life member who liked guns b)staunch anti-commie who had worked w/ Joe McCarthy in the Senate c)supply sider who cut taxes on the rich.

Bush was as much a dumbkard as Grant was a drunkard.
