Any thinking person who opposed Bush could not logically support 0bama. 0bama has done virtually everything Bush did (record-breaking deficits, rampant violation of privacy rights, wars of aggression, complete failure to secure the borders, etc.) but he has done them to a greater extent. 0bama is Bush on steroids.

I love what the O did to get rid of the Patriot Act because it was a violation of the Bill of Rights...oh wait! He didn't do anything to get rid of the Patriot Act...

He took advantage of a bad decision by his predecessor, and amplified the wrongness, and now he is hiring thousands of gun-toting IRS agents as his ptivate army, along with all the other
"Enforcement arms" of agencies that exist without Constitutional authority. Can uou spell Gestapo?

Actually, no. You're correct about Obama accumulating 4X the annual deficit of the Bush admin, and also about the borders remaining open (which is also true of Clinton, Bush I, Reagan, Carter, Ford, Nixon, etc.) But Obama is corrupt where Bush was honest; he has used the government to enrich his buddies and assault his enemies. Obama considers himself above the law, where Bush considered himself subject to it. Obama exhibits disdain for the plight of the average American, where Bush felt it personally, and expressed it in his conduct. Obama is narcissistic where Bush was selfless. Obama empowers the largest corporations where Bush empowered the entrepreneur.

Also, "rampant violation of privacy rights and wars of aggression" is nonsense.

(A) The existence of two agencies hardly justifies the adjective "rampant," even if you are correct about them.

(B) While both are currently violating rights by enacting the agenda of the Democrats, nothing about their existence inherently violates any rights.

So, no, I can't agree that the Bush admin engaged in "rampant violation of privacy rights."

Very well said, inkling... not just on this post, but on everything you've written that I've read so far. Bush was a far better president, being a decent man, than he ever gets credit for.

Once upon a time, a group of people known as the "Democrats" expressed great fear of tyranny by government.This was a time long, long ago, when a man from a place called Texas, representing a people known as the Republicans, occupied the White House. Leaders of the Democrats feared tyranny by the Republicans and called the man from Texas racist, oppressive and tyrannical.

To refresh your recollection, we offer a few examples from the distant past:

Billionaire Democratic contributor George Soros. He said the George W. Bush White House displayed the "supremacist ideology of Nazi Germany" and that Bush's administration...
