Why was republican President Bush such a failure?

2 unfunded wars

Unfunded drug program

Hurt Americas image

Increased spending while cutting taxes

Country was attacked months after sworn in

29% approval rating from Americans

He was such a failure and did nothing good. Mission accomplished my assss.

President Obama in 100 times better. The country crashed in 08 and millions and millions of jobs were lost in his final months in office as he left the country in shambles.

    Obama isn't 100 times better. If anything, he's 100 times the same...if not worse. For the first 6 years of his presidency, Bush had to deal with a DEMOCRATIC majority in Congress. It was DEMOCRATS who sent us to war, the President can't unilaterally declare war without the approval of Congress. So before you blame Bush for the war...look at who has the power to declare war. Congress.

    People who blame the President exclusively really have no idea how the government works. I'd suggest that you read the Constitution for starters, then maybe take a class at your local community college on the function of government.

    MILLIONS fewer Americans in the workforce today than the day Obama took office.

    Largest budget deficits in human history.

    Largest increase in health insurance costs in history.

    Hurt America's image

    Violated war powers act in Libya

    Ran guns to Mexican drug cartels

    Ordered generals to lie about national security so that his campaign contributors could make money ( LightSquared ).

    Ordered loans reworked so his campaign contributors would get money ( Solyndra )

    Downgraded US credit rating.

    Supported Al Qaeda backed rebels taking over Libya and the Muslim Brotherhood take over Egypt.

    Forced a record number of Americans on to food stamps

    Allowed worst environmental disaster in US history, then played politics with the recovery effort.

    When you say "President Obama in 100 times better" I can only take that as an expression of your hatred of the US and the people who live here.

    Because he was stuck with majority liberals in both houses when the economy crashed.

    Obama is 100 TIMES WORSE!

    PAY ATTENTION TO policies rather than what Obama says- there is VAST DIFFERENCE in OUTCOME!

    Im not protecting Bush- he had his share of mistakes, but at least he took responsibly when most of it was really Pelosi, Reid,Dodds and Barney FRANKS fault!

    Obama probably blames his fart smells on Republicans!

    Bush was not a Conservative.

    Bush was a RINO and not liked by real American Conservatives.

    Yet, he was still a much better choice than Kerry or Gore.

    Bush was a very good president. Obama is the worst president in the history of the nation, bar none; well maybe Carter.
