I don't agree that Bush destroyed the nation.
The Iraq war was ill-advised but otherwise Bush made some very sound decisions on global warming, taxes and the overall war on terror.
He also made some very bad decisions such as trying to grant amnesty to 20 million illegal aliens.
But Obama is rejecting the good things that Bush did and accepting all of Bush's bad policies.
With Obama it's a lose-lose situation.
He's an idiot.
LMAO...you praise bush in this post and blame President Obama in the previous post for inheriting bush's economy! You truly have no clue.

I just give credit where credit is due.

Bush gets some credit while Obama has earned none so far.

A majority of the voters may have agreed with you last November.

But now they've had a year to see what Obama is all about and now I think more than half agree with me.

It's just too bad they didn't wake up sooner.

SURE! Bush gets credit for napping while the US and world economic system self distructs and wakes up with us on the precipite of a great depression caused by the now fulled demeaned reaganomics. Give him a lot of CREDIT for that. And acknowledge that Obama, the first black president, managed to cold-cock the depression with quick action in the TARP loans and the stymulus bills. We're still in a recession. But 10% unemployed is a whole lot better that an estimated 30%, or more. Like I already said, blinded by you own ignorance.

As to what people may think, that vacillates and migrates up and down. Your alleged majority is not real, except on FOX none-news and opinion only channel.

Bush gets the blame for whatever happened on his watch.

Now Bush is gone and it's Obama's turn to take all the heat for the economy during his adminstration.

If Obama just wanted to tour the world and play golf without getting any criticism for his ineptness he should have stayed in the Senate.

It is Obama's stupid economic policies that is dragging the recession out longer than it needs to be and the voters are going to punish the Dems for it in the next two elections.

As a fellow Texan I want to say that Rep. Senator John Cornyn is a fine decent hardworking Senator who constantly who consistantly keeps the best interests of all of his fellow Texans on his agenda and I am proud of him knowing I can go to sleep at night knowing there is one fella in Wash. looking out for us here in Texas. Sorry for the ones in other States that cannot brag on your Senators especially you Democrats.

Senator John Cornyn is a rat. He ignored his constituents about the criminal in Crawford. He just scurries onto the boat like the rest of the rats.

Jose,
what we need to do is send all of the illegals butts packing, We need to toughen our immigration laws like Mexico and throw your butts in prision make you pay for your up keep and when your time is served put you on the first greyhound out of town.
Us Gringos are tired of the 3rd world mentality you want to live in. IF Mexico is that great ,please be our guest and go home! We have enough issues with our country without the "beaners" ( same terminalogy you used for us) trashing our country, stealing from the government( by lying about where Pedro is, I no see him, so I need free housing, free food, free medical,,blah blah) and Pedro is sitting in the free housing we GRINGOS pay for, and enjoying a life long vacation. This country is tired of supporting illegals who give nothing back...tides are a changing...

Party bickering plays into the hands of politicians. As long as we think we have to align ourselves with parties, politicians will continue eating steak diners together and High 5ing each other in D.C. while laughing at our false sense of value. They just trade off every few years. I understand though, it's really rare to find a politician with fudiciary(?) concern. I'm not real sure what to do, but something has to happen. BTW, I've been a republican my entire life.
