why u say that?

I agree with u bush started all of this greed of oil
Report as
Obama continues. Seriously, what's changed?
Report as
Amen flawless!
Report as
Flawlesstiger is right.
Report as
Nothing has changed except for the increase of debt
Report as
Because we are still operating under jrs tax cuts AND paying for his wars AND paying for the pharmaceutical giveaway.
Report as
Obama was the one who bailed out GM and Chrysler to save jobs but ended up increasing the debt by 700 billion, and the companies are still struggling
Report as
Actually bush started that bailout
Report as
Bush didn't do anything but play golf all day and take vacations! They even made a documentary on it . He even started 9/11 just so that he can make Muslims look bad and make war worse. I hope he rots in hell!
Report as
Bush started it, Obama is trying to fix it. THe republican party is doing everything in their power to prevent him from fixing it. And the people are paying the price of republican treason. The worst thing though, and it's thanks to Ruprt MUrdoch and his war on truth, through his puppet company FOX, is they have a very large segment ofr society brainwashed into thinking the republicans are trying to help. ANd that it is the democrats that are doing the damage.

Your comment just sounded absolutely ridiculous

Jason in what way do you think Obama is the worst president we ever had? I don't think anyone was worse for this nation than Bush. 4 years later and we are still suffering from his 8 years of destructive policies. I realise it's not all Bush's fault. The republicans have been very effective in dearilaing and sabotoging the attempts to fix our economy. But do you have any specific reasons why you think Obama is the worst president? Worse even than George W?
Report as
His bark is bigger than his bite, everything he said he was going to improve he's either done nothing or made worse....people are going to like him no matter what he does because it is inspiring that he is the first president to not be fully caucasian ...if you excluded the minority vote, he would not have even won the primary election.....I'm not saying he's the worst, im saying he's 99% talk
Report as
His policies have brought over 7 million jobs, the deficit is actually lower, inflation is lower, employment is up, the economy is improving. He has made good on everything he set out to do. It is true the republicans have blockaded a lot of his efforts which I think is disgusting how they would rather try to make the president look bad then help out in the problem their party caused in the first place, so a that some of Obama's programs haven't achieved their desired results. But are there any specific things he said hed do but didn't do?

"... didn't react in a timely manner to 9/11 ..."

It happened in Sept, we had planes in the air and spec. ops. on the ground attacking the taliban and a.q. by Oct. One month after 9/11, That's not "timely" enough?

Obama is still worse by far!

Look at the bs promises of Sandy.
Report as
More of our military have died in Obama's wars then in Bush's. We have also spent more money that we don't have under Obama. Time to take a long hard look at what Obama has been doing. He has our military spread out all over the Middle East. Hey but we are out of Iraq... Oh never mind, we are still there.
Report as
Hmmm.... Obama stopped by Sandy for a photo-op for a couple of hours and you want to b!tch aboutBush and Katrina? The problem with Katrina was the idiots in charge in Louisiana, who happened to be democrats!
Report as
Obama should be ashamed of himself TWICE for his handling of Sandy! If the media didn't have their heads so far up their @sses they'd be reporting in it but then again Obama is not a mere mortal, what the hell was I thinking!!
Report as
He ended Iraq, I thought, but we still have tens of thousand of troops there??? Now Lybia, without congress by the way, possibly Syria so you want to talk about Bush?! Not even close!! Obamas credit card is way way over the limit!!!!!
Report as
More soldiers died in Obama's war than in Bushes phony made up wars?! What about Sandy? Obama not did something unlike Bush, but Obama dia great job in Sandy. And I think you know and choose to ignore is that most of Obama's spending was the bill Bush gave us. I haven't been watching the lies coming from FOX lately, are these the new lies FOX is brainwashing on you guys? Or is this freelance propoganda? In other words is this canon propoganda or is it fan based fiction?
Report as
Fan based fiction.
Report as
Stella09 is exactly right
Report as
Not hardly. Sandy was a bigger issue because
A) more people, tighter quarters, lack of housing for displaced persons
B) places like NY and NJ aren't set up to deal with hurricanes
Bush's photo op was a flyover.
Report as
Obama did a great job with Sandy. Had he pulled a Bush flyby, hed have lost the election.

No, each president has helped in something, good or bad, its not easy and just being president is a challenge.
So alot of people will say yes, but honestly he is trying, and not the worst.

Carter is one of the smartest presidents we've ever had. Did you know he was a nuclear physicist? Obama is one of the best presidents we've ever had. GW Bush was one of the worst ever. At least he ruined it for Jeb, he made it clear what the Bush clan is all about. Never again!

Carter was book smart, but as president he was an idiot. Obama will go down in history as even worse than Carter.

Unlike Bush who was book smart, street dumb, and presidentially dumber. Carter did a good job by the way. Actually Tony737, when our guy does well, you guys attack him anyways and make up false stuff about it. ANd when your guy does badly you guys just attack our guy and blame our guy for your guys foul ups. That is how the republicans roll. Dirty politics is th ename of your game. Heck you guys wrote the book on it.
Report as
Get real, I remember when the unemployment rate was 4.4% and yet your side still vehemently attacked Dubya.
Report as
George Bush and his administration caused the problem.
Report as
They made it worse by doing a stimulus, Obama attacked him for it. What did he do? A stimulus! The same thing he attacked Bush for. He said Bush was spending too much, that it was "unpatriotic" to run up the debt. Do what did he do? Spent MORE than Bush! Hypocrite ... Unpatriotic by his own argument. He spent more in FOUR years than Bush did in EIGHT. Imagine where the National Debt will be in 2016. Your side will own it, as of Jan 2013 no more blaming Bush.
Report as
When we've fixed bush's errors then we can finish with bush
Report as
Bush made mistakes trying to be a lefty, that's where he went wrong, Obama did the same thing, who's more wring, the guy who makes the mistake or the guy who repeats it?
Report as
I don't think BUsh made mistakes. I think he was following the agenda of his party. Make the rich richer atthe expense of the middle class, And drive everyone else either into the grave or the poor house. ANd they succeeded with flying colors. ANd I think that is the main reason why the republicans have been dragging their heels opposing every effort to fix the problem. Problem?! THey caused it! ANd they have used all of their resources to keep it the way it is. To them the economin crisis and our financial meltdown is a well oiled money machine. Wake up and see the truth. Bush didn't mees up, he succeeded in achieving his party's true agenda.
Report as
Funny 'cause I see it the other way around, Obama wants to ruin the economy so that more people will be dependent on govt and beholden to the Donks and they'll keep on voting for them do they can keep getting their monthly checks.
Report as
Tony. You really have to give up on fox. Bush a lefty... Hahaha.
Report as
As soon as you give up on MSNBC. I didn't say he was a lefty, I said he was trying to be one by passing the stimulus and then Obama did the same thing, he's a lefty, no?
Report as
Obama has spent the last four years trying to fix the problems the republicans caused. ANd the republicans have put up one heck of a fight to prevent him from fixing it. What's worse is the republican that caused the problem and prevented the fixing of the problem also blamed Obama for the problem they caused and sustained. Forget FOX, Forget MSNBC, forget all the propoganda sources, and read up on the facts. You might be surprised to see who really is doing the lying to the people.
Report as
This goes back further than Bush, it started because Clinton wanted banks to give housing loans to people who couldn't afford to pay the mortgage.

Based purely on how much they changed the government to ignore the Constitution ... I would say Lincoln and FDR were the worst Presidents we've had. They both set the stage for Obama's ignoring it (with the "Affordable Care Act").

Just because times are bad does not mean the president is a superhero who would have the power to shower us with money and peace. He's doing the best he can and, if you ask me, maaaaany other people would have dug America's grave deeper. He may not be keeping us totally above the ground, but he||, consistency is better than an all-out crash. Being the president at a time like this ain't a picnic. Poor guy inherited a lot of issues, but he is certainly doing his best. Red out.

8 years of Bush really put us in the hole. Imagine your playing a video game, and your having an all time high score, a record game. Then your mom calls you and when you get back your little brother messed your game beyond recognition. When Clinton left office we were in great shape! 8 years of bush later, and when Obama got elected the republicans made our country a train wreck.

Excuses. All excuses. Many people could have led us out of this mess better than Obama is doing. The problem lies with stupid indoctrinated into socialism, Americans. They keep doing the same thing expecting different results. 4 more years of this and we might not survive.

I would have thought the point was obvious. Then again most people don't use the word 'duh' as part of the their vocabulary. The point is, stop taking the lies on FOX as scripture and facts. Step outside of the fictional bubble, and embrace reality. It's better to embrace the uncomfortable truth, then the lies that comfort.
