The following blog website thought Bush was a horrible president.

But thinks Obama is worse. Make up your own mind whether you agree with the website or not:

Income inequality has increased more under Obama than under Bush.

Under Obama, the richest Americans have captured more than 100% of all income gains.

Liberal Nobel prize economist Joseph Stiglitz said in 2009 that Obama’s toxic asset plan “amounts to robbery of the American people”.

While everyone knows about the $700 billion “Tarp” bailout which started under Bush, a top banking analyst puts the current bailouts under Obama at more than $780 billion each year.

Obama has prosecuted fewer financial crimes than President Reagan, Clinton or either of the Bush presidents.

Obama has prosecuted more whistleblowers than all other presidents combined.

In March 2010, AP documented that – under Obama – 17 major agencies were 50 percent more likely to deny freedom of information requests than under Bush.

A new AP investigation published last week shows that the Obama administration has recently become more secretive than ever.

Obama is spying on Americans more widely than Bush. The former head of the National Security Agency’s global digital data gathering program, William Binney, says that the pervasiveness of spying under Obama has only “gotten worse”.

Under Obama, the agency which decides who should be killed by drone is the same agency which spies on all Americans.

Obama has dramatically escalated the use of drone assassinations which are creating many more terrorists than they are killing. He’s actually underestimating damage from the program as drones have become the number 1 recruiting tool for Al Qaeda.

Nope. The IRS offices are not located in the White House;they're no where near each other. There ought to be a statute of limitation on redundant stupidity .Time's up. The Republicans should not be allowed to waste the tax payers money and time on silly bureaucratic messes as an excuse to not address the serious issues plaguing the country like catastrophic climate change.

No longer a government of the people by the people and for the people - now a government serving itself with taxpayer dollars!

Chicago grew because of cattle shipping, now it exports bullshit to the white house and Obama should apologize for knowingly IRS targeting. Obama continues to further eroded public trust in government and his administration.

Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was manufactured in England.

In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York.

This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico. But as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York. The ship hit an iceberg and sank.

The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were eagerly awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning.

The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known, of course, as -

"Sinko De Mayo".

Two wrongs don't make a right, ever.

If the current admin would actually use the brains in the head on their shoulders, they wouldn't waste time and dollars partaking in "bully practice government"

They would instead, spend time much more wisely, doing things like trying to REFORM some of the TAX codes, that would actually CURB abuses to the system.

But thus far, they would rather seem to play elementary sandbox games, like self elevated above the law type grand poopoobahs, playing cowboys and injuns.

Obama's IRS choice... If the administration hopes to avoid a drawn-out investigation, it would do well to be more forthcoming.

Message to the Obama: Resistance is futile.

There are plenty of juicy targets for investigators in the IRS scrutiny of organizations that applied for tax-exempt status, but the most dangerous for Obama is: Did bureaucrats in Cincinnati create this mess on their own? Or did someone in the White House give the marching orders to target the president's enemies?

The Treasury Department's inspector general asked that latter question of the IRS brass, and they said no — but he didn't demand their emails and phone records.

So Congress is demanding them now. On Monday, Sens. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) and Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah), the top members on the Senate Finance Committee, asked the IRS for all records of communications with "any and all White House employees — including, but not limited to, the president."

Obama shouldn't merely allow the IRS to cooperate; he should order the IRS to cooperate fully and enthusiastically. Meantime, the White House staff should also begin combing their own records to see if there's anything else they need to fess up. Under the doctrine of executive privilege, internal White House records are normally immune from congressional probing, but it would benefit Obama to be forthcoming.

The reason is simple: The president needs to prove a negative. He needs to show that there was no political influence over the IRS decisions. Proving a negative is never easy; it's doubly difficult when others are beginning to doubt your word.

The White House hasn't done much to bolster the president's credibility so far. While Obama himself has said the right things, his aides have sounded grouchy and grudging about cooperating with congressional investigations.

When spokesman Jay Carney was asked whether the White House would disclose emails to Congress, he refused to say — beyond a general promise to cooperate with any "legitimate congressional oversight."

White House advisor Dan Pfeiffer was downright pugnacious. "This is a Republican playbook," Pfeiffer charged during one of his Sunday TV appearances. "When they don't have a positive agenda,[they] try to drag Washington into a swamp of partisan fishing expeditions, trumped-up hearings and false allegations."

Even worse, the administration is having a hard time getting its story straight on who knew about the IRS problem and when they knew it.

The initial story was that nobody in the White House knew anything about the inspector general's findings in advance of the report's release last week. Then it turned out that White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler was briefed on its findings in late April. A few days later, the White House disclosed that Ruemmler told Chief of Staff Denis McDonough about the findings. But McDonough decided not to inform his boss, the president — according to the White House, that is.

The irony is that it shouldn't matter if Obama knew the inspector general's report was coming or what it said. The important thing is that no one in the White House intervened to block, delay or change it.

lol! Well gee son, thanks to cons and the Citizen's United ruling, that's exactly what we got.... government that is no longer "...of the people by the people and for the people..."

Now they've made it legal for corporations, both foreign and domestic, to not only influence politics, but hide from the people on what they're doing.

So don't complain. Non cons didn't want this... conservatives did!
