If George Bush was re-elected as President, why shouldn't Obama be re-elected?

Bush started TWO wars that he didn't pay for and couldn't finish and took the country from budget SURPLUSES to budget DEFICITS and he was re-elected.

Any wonder why his name wasn't mentioned at the RNC this past week?

Update:

@ JRHRLH- What kind of President STARTS 2 wars AND lowers taxes?

@ OZZY- Hoover was never re-elected

    Because in 04 there wasn't a better alternative.

    I guess you dont recall that for over 7 of Bush's 8 years we had strong economic growth and record low unemployment.

    You also must have missed Jeb Bush talk about W and ask Obama to to quit blaming him and take responsibility after 4 years.

    I guess ignorance is bliss.

    Giving you the benefit of doubt and assuming that Bush and Obama are equals in performance, then what you are suggesting that two wrongs make a right.....or that the Democrats deserve equal time to screw up?

    Because Mr Reporting for Duty Kerry was a bucket of warm spit

    ''I know American troops committed atrocities in Vietnam'....oh really as an officer you had a duty to report these atrocities did you? ''well ...welll no...I did not see them I heard about them''

    Mr Kerry appealed to the lowest level of Americans just as Mr Obama

    Yes.. You are hitting the nail on the head with this one. The nazis cannot admit that their boy Georgie did more damage to America than any other president has or will. Amen. This is why they did not have Georgie or any of their other mistakes speak at their convention and this is a very poignant point.

    The democrat congress and house took us from surpluss to deficit. Are you so ignorant as to think one man could do that? Grow up.

    No wonder. He asked not to be included. You really need to study some and pay attention.
