Wkth all of the scandals and false promises from the Obama administration, there's no way you could do worse. Benghazi, gaza strip, ISIS, the list goes on and on. Not to mention the four and a half million illegal immigrants that will become legal tomorrow from executive legislature. Thanks Obama!
President Obama has done nothing but make all of things Bush did even worse. He has increased the debt to 18 trillion dollars, and has made countless lies and mistakes. Bush was not a good president by far, but he sure as hell did not lie as much and did not mess things up as badly as Obama has done.
Let's do the Obama-gate count: ISIS-gate, Ebola-In-US-gate, Open-Boarder-gate, Benghazi-gate, IRS-gate, Press-gate, Fast-and-Furious-gate, NSA-gate, Vet-gate, Bowe-gate, Gruber-gate, Birth-certificate-gate, etc, and the end is not near.
Obama changed the US Constitution with a “pen and a phone.” Voters wanted “fundamental change,” they got it.
On the other hand, Obama may be a better golfer than Bush. Perhaps, we should have a playoff game. The country is much safer when Obama is on the golf course.
There has been no policy change in major matters . It is only Obama is more sleek than Bush . For example war is continuing and expanding too . Regime change is going on . But Obama does not draw attention to it . Similarly in USA , home land security is tightening as Edward Sweden so rightly pointed out , Torture , hijacking of suspects and putting them in international torture cells is still going on. This actually gives government power to do anything including setting up false flag operations . Obama also supports Big money just like Bush . He actually lied during his Campaign
He got elected because people wanted change, but he ended up just compounding anything that Bush did wrong. I don't really see a valid complaint anyone could have on Bush and not Obama. Not to mention the miserable failure of Obamacare and the insane amount of scandals Obama was involved in (Benghazi, fast and furious, NSA, IRS targeting conservatives, and trading 5 known terrorists for Bergdahl to name a few). People lost their minds when bush wiretapped some people's phone's without a warrant, but no one seems to mind the NSA monitoring EVERYONE'S internet and phone activity. I'm not saying Bush was the greatest president we ever, but he was definitely better than Obama.
Obama not only has been involved in multiple foreign policy blunders (ISIS, Ebola, Ukraine, Israel ext.), but he has also been ignored by his own Democratic Senators! When your own party starts to abandon you it means you have hit a low point in your policy making. The policy at home is even worse. With problems with the IRS, NSA, VA, and CDC the Obama administration has been behind the eight ball. Obamacare and the Stimulus package only have plunged the United States into $1 trillion+ dollars of added debt. Finally, the lack of transparency and a simply gaffe ridden vice president put a nail in the Obama presidency coffin.
If I recall bush put are country at war, fail to catch the 9/11 terrorist and etc. But Obama has made where our lower income families can have health care, and he took out the 9/11 terrorist. Obama has been active in troubled places and even tried to take guns off the street . What did bush Do. And those immmigrants deserve better how would like it if you were them living in poverty, being raped,and whatching family die.
Bush was actually one of the WORST presidents in the history of America. Case in point:
The Iraq War (most pointless conflict of our time).
The No Child Left Behind Act.
His vacation time! It's so funny when people complain about Obama and his vacations when Bush was off at some resort every other week! He had over 1200 days of vacation time, so more than a third of his time in office was spent not doing his job.
The national debt doubled under him.
He stole the 2000 election from Al Gore.
His environmental record.
Catered to religion instead of his country.
Poverty increased by almost 30%.
Cut veteran's healthcare funding.
Completely obliterated reproductive rights.
9/11/01 and its entire aftermath.
Liked the death penalty too much in his time as Texas governor.
The Patriot Act.
Screwed up foreign affairs.
The national deficit skyrocketed.
The job market suffered.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg. Now, I understand not liking Obama (as long as you have justifiable reasons) but Bush was just heinous, right up there with Reagan.
If I was a presidential teacher, I give Obama a B- and Bush a D-. Bush was an absolute disaster; Obama has made mistakes but not nearly as frequently. Under Bush we saw a mediocre economy and massive deficits leading to the financial crisis. Plus a disastrous war in Iraq based on lies. Under Obama there has been health care reform and economic recovery--admittedly neither has been perfect. Bush may have been the worst ever, so this is more comment on him than praise of Obama.
Bush made us enter a useless war in Iraq. We wasted billions of dollars on a stupid war. Not to mention the recession was primarily the fault of his administration. Bush is an idiot who should not have been elected in the first place. Bush should never have been elected in the first place. The fraud he did in the 2000 Elections lead to the decline of the United States. Obama isn't much better, but atleast he made some improvements to our failing healthcare system.
