how is bush a better president than obama?
1) Stimulus bill has been a complete waste
2) Obamacare is/will be a complete failure. Will only raise premiums (some insurance companies have already started) and was shoved down our throats.
3) Said he was against war on terror or at least scaling back. Yeah we pulled out of Iraq, but he increased troop counts in Afghanistan so that nullifies that. Plus Osama is in Pakistan, where we should be focusing on.
To me they are basically almost the same and there are many reasons why neither were really good presidents. History will be (already starting to) be kinder to Bush rather than Obama. Polls have shown that even Obamas staunchiest supporters are starting to grow tired of him. I really do not think Obama wants to worst for our country. When right-wing nuts say he wants to destroy America, it is just nutcase talk and the likes and should be ignored. Same goes to far left-wingers who mocked Bush all throughout his term and to this day call him a moron (yeah he sucked as a public speaker, so what? He at least didn't use the teleprompter for every single stupid speech like Obama).
If the Republican party want to hand Obama a 2nd term, they might as well nominate Palin. I read a study that says in every single election, the vote is won by statistically about a percentage smaller than 10% of voters who are usually undecided until election day. That study is somewhere on the net and it is a good read, but the point is that Palin will no way win those undecided. She is too extreme for their vote. This is where Clinton exceled at, and that was finding the middle-of-the-road Americans. Clinton overall was a decent president, but there were a few instances aside from the scandal that I am not too fond of. For every president I can bitch at least something about them. Honestly, lately when I go and vote I try to either go 3rd party as I have no confidence in either Republicans or Democrats. The only republican I respect right now is our governor, but that is another arguement. There are Democrats I respect too, but they are few and far between (Cuomo running for gov of ny for example).
Overall, our political system sucks is my point lol. Hate that we have to choose between the lesser of 2 evils in order to even get our vote count is in this 2-party, winner take all elections. In Europe at least, if you are 3rd party you can actually win seats in Parliament. That is more true democracy than what we have here.
