    What if George Bush forced banks to make bad sub-prime loans knowing they would default. Threatening prosecution on discrimination if they refused and causing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to collapse causing the housing crisis. Lets blame Bush not Barney Frank.

  • If GW had a teleprompter, we may not be laughing about the stupid words he created and gaffes he had.

    And as stated, all of those things have been done over the years by ALL presidents. I just find it funny that because THIS president chooses to do these things as well that so many want to come out and slam him for doing it. Where in the hell were you when Nancy Reagan was buying all that china for them to use at the White House, or having psychics come into the White House to "advise" on policy? You don't find that to be a bit on the extravagant side?? I don't hear about Michelle Obama spending millions on designer dresses (like Nancy did). Matter of fact, her typical wardrobe came from J. Crew - hardly "high end". Don't recall seeing Laura Bush or Nancy Reagan stooping so low as to shopping at the local mall for their clothing. . .

    It is all in political perspective. You choose to be against Obama, so you choose to magnify the insignificant rather than examine the significant. It is playing politics, and so many do it now days because they have the internet.

  • No. If George Bush had a D instead of an R as his political affiliation liberals would approve.

    I would like to state that I view both Barack Obama and George W Bush as ineffective presidents. That should answer your question.

    Ronald Reagan always did a speech using cue cards. That was never an issue with anyone.

    No. And, for the few things in there that are true or aren't distortions, I'm none too happy about those either.

    But, Georgie did far far worse than any of those things combined.

    George W. Bush wouldn't stoop so low. He was a much better president than the one we have now.
