There is the possibility that events of the last five years have made Bush’s star shine a little brighter, relatively speaking. In Bush’s last year in office his party’s reputation was likened by retiring Rep. Tom Davis to “dog food” that ought to be taken off the shelf. Today it’s still on the shelf and isn’t any fresher after being pitched by salesmen like John McCain and Mitt Romney. Republicans have reason to be a little wistful for the Bush years. And there’s a feeling among centrists that whatever his mistakes, the party Bush led wasn’t as nasty as it has since become.

What's making Bush shine is that people are finally beginning to recognize what we have now in comparison. Also, more and more people are catching on to the corruption in the main stream media.

When was the last time the main stream media reported anything that put Obama in a bad light?

When was there ever a day when the main stream media didn't portray Bush in a bad light?

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to get this.

Rick Santorum blames President Barack Obama for “a nightmare of dependency with almost half of America receiving some sort of government assistance.” But the same could have been said of George W. Bush. In fact, the Census Bureau reported that in the third quarter of 2008, under Bush,“nearly half of U.S. residents live in households receiving government benefits.”

Back then, Census reported that 44.4 percent of Americans received some sort of government benefits. That has risen to 49 percent under Obama as of the most recent figures available, and much of that modest increase is due to the aging Baby Boom generation reaching retirement age.

Indeed, Santorum is also being profoundly misleading when he refers to all “government assistance” as a “nightmare.” Those receiving benefits include tens of millions of senior citizens and disabled persons on Social Security and Medicare.

Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood Propped Up by US Since 2007 Under Bush

In 2007, the Wall Street Journal published an article titled,“To Check Syria, U.S. Explores Bond With Muslim Brothers.” And even then, it was noted that the Brotherhood held close links with groups the US recognizes and lists as terrorist organizations, including Hamas and Al Qaeda.

Imagine the negative press coverage if Bush were the president during the past four years:
1. Fast and Furious fiasco.
2. Benghazi fiasco.
3. Acceleration of the drone program.
4. Ongoing wars in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
5. Record high number of people on welfare.
6. Boston terrorist attack.
7. Underwear bomber potential disaster.
8. Supplying money to the Muslim Brotherhood.
9. Obamacare unraveling.
10.Tripling the deficit in four years.

Hello??

I wonder if that one will stick?
More taxes on the middle class are coming.

This president would tax anything that isn't nailed down.

He just doesn't get that's not how revenue is raised.

And he never will.

27 million Blacks are still owned as slaves in Muslim countries.
No Liberals ever complain about that.

To put that in perspective: As of 2012 there were 43,884,130 African-Americans in the United States.

Something to think about.

Oh, for heaven's sake. Stop embarrassing yourself.

Should I list all the atrocities committed in Syria, Egypt, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran alone in the past four years??

Not to mention Boston?

One more time you prove yourself a phoney sonofabitch. You accuse folks of racism but offer no proof.
I have on a number of occasions taken racists to task. Ask "silly" who has on a number of occasions acknowledged and agreed with my posts. Speaking of commenting on racist posters I have commented several times on your blatant racism.
Peace

If you read the posts from which I cited a racial slur & you did not think it was a racial slur then perhaps you;'d be a racist f*ck.

When I identified these slurs, in you jumped in telling the poster to ignore me because I played the race card.

I have news, Bozo, that is defending those that posted those slurs.
