Wondering why RW folks are bringing up Bush as an example of an administration that worked out just fine.

We were attacked on our own soil during Bush's administration. (And after he ignored written briefings about an upcoming attack.)

Bush and his neo-con advisors lied the U.S. into two wars with no way to pay for them.

The economy crashed on his watch.

Took years for the nation to get back on the road to prosperity. We're still paying the price for the wars. (Is it still too soon to call them "quagmires?")

Trump voters and Trump himself dislike Bush as much as we dislike Obama. It's the Never Trumpers who still worship both Bushes.Sorry to ruin your stereotype.

At least the left wing predictions weren't as bad as the reality :

Worst recession since the Great Depression & two Wars in the Middle East that he left for Obama!

Most of which he expanded and made worse!

Plus the drone murders, the assassinations of American citizens, etc.

Thank God above that he didn't get around to completing any of that, although he was in progress with a few of those plans. It's not that he wouldn't have tried, though.

Hell half the stuff we complain about now was started during the Bush Presidency. Why are we still in Afghanistan?


People speculate and infer things about other modern Presidents or have 1-2 things to really hammer on (NAFTA) but Bush had so problems that cost American tax payers Trillions in addition to thousands of lives for no reason.
Daryl, I just have one small piece I want to address. The housing bubble bursting in 07-08 was one of those things blamed on Dubya. The fact though is this. He warned the Dem-controlled Congress about the Fannie/Freddie fiasco, how way too many mortgages were being approved for folks who couldn’t make the payments, and how a housing bubble collapse would lead to or greatly exacerbate a recession. He was ignored. The same thing happens regardless of the party of the President. Legislation is made in Congress. They should take a ton of the blame, regardless of the party affiliation of the President, or majority in Congress. These days, you can throw them all in a bag, shake it up, dump a couple out, and they will be generally just as self-serving as any of the others, regardless of party.

We need a viable third party.

Number 4. Though I am not sure who you would blame. Obama was heavy with his class warfare approach to politics as well as inserting himself into local police affairs. That said I think his supporters were the real culprits. If you disagreed with Obama's politics then you were a racist. Didn't vote for Obama? You are a racist. Everything became racist.

Is that a race war? No, but I think it is a beginning of one.
