Libs, if you think Bush lied and overspent and that he was a bad President for doing so?

Why do you use him as an excuse for obama to do the same and think its ok?

    Why ask liberals? They don't know anything but the lies they hear on tv. Look at the answers. Spending is down, the economy is stabilizing. None of that is true or base on any facts. In reality the economy is still going down every day, unemployment is still growing. Bush lied about nothing. The wmd's were there and have been found in Syria where sadamm sent them. The economic meltdown was cuased by the democratic congress which included obama. Bush didn't overspend on anything. He actually fixed the economy that clinton broke.

    There are 2 false assumptions in your question.

    The first is that we think its "ok" for Obama to have continued almost all of the Bush policies. Many liberals do not.

    The second is that because of the Bush spending, the Obama spending is required; yet conservatives can't seem to admit that. The converse of your question is also true: Since conservatives think Obama is so "bad"; why did they support Bush for doing the exact same things?

    Obama's trying to fix Bush's mess, it's not the same

    any recession causes more debt until the economy grows

    if the republican's would lose their party first mentality and stop sabotaging the economy for political gain things would be much better than they are

  • all presidents lie and overspend... at least all modern presidents...

    so, then it becomes only a measure of how did they lie and why did they overspend... and how justifiable were those actions...

    example... Reagan overspent... spent more than any prior president... but the recession was a pretty good reason if you ask me... iran/contra? but no one cared that much...

    but Bush.. lied to start a WHOLE WAR? and then overspent a ton... and then had a huge recession at the end? meh... no so good...

    does Obama have a decent reason, and how damaging are his lies?

    Rock the Casbah- SPENDING IS DOWN?!!! What rock have you been hiding under?

    The deficit from last year is the same as the year before. This year's budget has barely seen one quarter. We have NO IDEA what levels government is spending at.

    In the Encyclopedia Britannica, next to the the term "Kool-Aid Drinker" is your picture. In full color, I might add.

    Fox news watchers, Bush DID overspend, and it is STILL his fault. He took a surplus and turned it into a damn trillion dollar deficit. Spending has grown the least under obama than any of the last 5 presidents.

    If you get your news from Hannity and Bill O'Lielly, then you will continue to not know anything about this world.

    bush spent 6 trillion and got us into the great recession. and nothing to show unless you can name one thing and please leave iraq out. we all believe it was dumb and ill conceived. Obama spent 5 trillion. and stopped the recession and turned it around. and we have better roads, healthcare passed. might be good or bad but its better than not having anything.
