    • Blaw Blaw Blaw.....

    • If GWB had appointed 30 Czars he would be grilled for it. Obama is making his own rules as he goes.

      I stayed neutral for a long time on this guy but he sucks and I also think GWB sucked too.

      • You are entitled to your opinion.

        I think Obama sucks but 43 really sucked but that's my opinion, the only I'm entitled to.

    • If George W. Bush had used a forged document as the basis of the moratorium that would render 87000 American workers unemployed would you support him?
      I'm not aware of any forged documents being used to put 87K people out of work.

      If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a TelePrompTer installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?
      43 was the 1st and only tongue tied & dyslexic orator in the country's history.
      That Obama is able to speak in complete and coherent snetences should not be a sore point among conservatives.
      You can always google GWB's gaffs if you need a laugh or 500.
      BTW...Is Obama really the 1st POTUS to use a teleprompter?

      If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?
      Yes I would, they both could use a real cultural evening out as opposed to spending millions of our tax dollars traveling to the other cultural center of the universe, AKA Crawford, Tx.

      If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan's holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?
      Decades of mis-mgmt in the auto industry took it to the brink of extinction.
      Have you ever heard of "Designed Obsolescence"?
      That Obama was bold enough to include the UAW in his recovery plan and that it was successful seems to be another sore point among conservatives.
      GM is on schedule paying back it's TARP or stimulus money, you have a problem with that?

      If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?
      43 joked about looking for WMD's all over the Oval Office which I thought was very crass.
      Don't try to tell us that 43 never misspoke.

      If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?
      No.

      If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?
      Yes.

      If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia , would you have approved?
      I didn't approve of 43 kissing the Saudi King/Prince on the mouth in the WH Rose Garden, a polite bow is not nearly as offensive to sane people.

    • If George W. Bush had doubled the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?
      I had enough trouble getting my arms around Reagan's tripling of the debt he inherited from Carter.
      Obama's only doubling 43's debt doesn't sound nearly as serious.

      If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?
      Have we seriously looked at what 43 did to the debt and balanced budget he inherited from Clinton?

      If George W. Bush had criticized a state law that he admitted he never even read, would you think that he is just an ignorant hot head?
      All POTUS's hire a staff to review laws.
      I'm sure Obama's staff looked at the law with all it's warts and came to a decision.
      The law was so poorly written it needed to be revised by the AZ legislature.

      If George W. Bush joined the country of Mexico and sued a state in the United States to force that state to continue to allow illegal immigration, would you question his patriotism and wonder who's side he was on?
      I questioned 43's patriotism when he kissed Vicente Fox's backside over illegal immigration and drug smuggling followed by his lawyers prosecuting and jailing (2) BP agents for shooting a drug smuggler and granting that smuggler prosecutiorial immunity, followed by that same smuggler returning on another drug dealing trip.

      If George W. Bush had put 87000 workers out of work by arbitrarily placing a moratorium on offshore oil drilling on companies that have one of the best safety records of any industry because one company had an accident would you have agreed?
      If Bush, led by Cheney and his secret meetings with oil big shots on our dime and in the people's White House hadn't dealt away our enviromental protections that might be an issue.
      Unfortunately, the bribe checks were cashed before 1/20/2001 so the point is moot.
