    For more than half a decade --even to some extent at this present time, George W. Bush has been blamed for our current economic mess. And he has been the fallguy (hey! remember that show?) for every other woe that has befallen this country, despite the fact that he has been out of office for ages.

    I realize that #43 deserves some blame for the condition of the country --especially big spending. But pardon me. B.O. has broken the back of our nation in so many areas it is disturbing.

    I resented Democrats always blaming Bush for everything --years into President Obama's administration. I thought it was an unfair cheap shot that sought to remove the onus from B.O. and the Democrats.

    But now, am I being inconsistent when I think that the next President will of necessity have to shoulder Obama with the deplorable condition of the nation?

    Soon Democrats running for President will have to consider the possibility of blaming B.O. for the shape of the nation. The Republicans sure are not going to run away from that charge.

    G.W. Bush started two of the longest and most meaningless wars in U.S. history. He funded both of these "off budget" and they cost us $6T. If anything the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq made us MORE vulnerable to terrorist attacks not less. al Qaeda wasn't in Iraq before we invaded the country. I think in 2007 when he was asked about capturing bin Laden Bush said that wasn't an important objective! Why did we start that war then? Obama took out bin Laden and a number of other top terrorist leaders.

    Let's talk about facts not partisan propaganda. Bush was the worst president in U.S. history.

    Yes let's do talk about facts. There are no facts possible to make a case for Bush being the worst president in history.

    Really? Did he do it all by himself or did he have help?

    Is that why you want to ignore the Democraps' role in going into Iraq?

    He was bad, but not even close to being as bad as Wilson, FDR, Carter, or Obama.

    Obama gave the final order that is all. The groundwork and mechanisms that existed which effected the death of Bin Laden were all put in place by Bush. Obama's participation was minimal at best. Considering the degradation of our military and intelligence Obama would never have been able to put that ground work and mechanisms in place himself. He and many liberals are taking a victory lap off of Bush.

    Lets take a look at the country from a morality perspective in addition to economics. Where do we see a God honoring and biblical approach and where do we see a abortion and queer marriage agenda? CLEARLY IN BO 'S ADMINISTRATION. So from my Christian prospective it is BO that stinks....and this guys going to hell. Hopefully sooner than later.

    "It's his fault" is a great way to distract ourselves from the obvious. Both parties serve the interests of the .01%.

    "It's his fault" is the road that has lead us to where we are. Indebted slaves and "regime change warriors" for a small group of private global financiers and huge conglomerated transnational (meaning loyalty to no one but themselves) corporations.

    The truth is, it's our fault for playing the blame game while both parties work to undermine our freedom and sovereignty.

    But don't let me spoil the party, keep playing the game.

    So we can assume you are among the 0.01% who understands "The truth is, it's our fault"?

    You can assume anything you like whether it be based on facts or not OR.

    You've proven that more than once, haven't you? Go ahead and keep playing the blame game look where it's got us so far.

    I keep telling you it's easy. All you have to do is quit reacting to the media's propaganda and start looking at all the evidence, or lack of evidence when they tell you something is so.

    The media isn't there to inform you. It's there to manipulate you, distract you and keep us divided.

    In other words, quit playing the leftie vs rightie game and start being objective.

    I said that with the understanding that you can never do it because you'd have to stop identifying with "your side", drop your biases, over come your fears and draw conclusions from the evidence or the lack of evidence instead of what the "experts" and "authorities" say.

    Don't watch the video I posted. You might learn something if you do. :eek:

    Once upon a time I asked OR to prove his allegations. All he proved was that he could sing neocon talking points while his pet monkey backed him on guitar.
