YES Shrub was the worst to ever live in The White House, that is why we are now stuck with this looser that lives there now. Obama is probably the second worst we've ever had. And now we are asked to choose between clueless and totaly clueless. SUX why don't you just go crawl under a rock?
I think Jimmy "Peanuts" Carter takes the cake for worst ever. I'm not arguing about Bush, but Carter was an idiot who just twiddled his thumbs while Iran held our embassy people hostage.

Lets take a look at Ryan’s plan that Romney so admires and run some numbers. Ahh yes a hackering for the good old days is still with these regressive “Party First” USA second. Ryan would have this accomplished in just one year! His economic plan would cost America 1 million jobs in the first year. Ryan's proposed budget would cripple the economy. He'd slash spending deeply, which would not only slow job growth, but shock the economy and cost 1 million of us our jobs in 2013 alone and kill more than 4 million jobs by the end of 2014.

Ahh yes the Robin Hood of the Cronies is what the defiant waco nrh dude would relish. Ryan would pickpocket the middle class to line the pockets of the rich. His tax plan is Robin Hood in reverse. He wants to cut taxes by $4.6 trillion over the next decade, but only for corporations and the rich, like giving families earning more than $1 million a year a $300,000 tax cut. And to pay for them, he'd raise taxes on middle- and lower-income households and butcher social service programs that help middle- and working-class Americans.

Now what do you think is a wacko nrh defiant split personality worth for merit in making a sane deductive rational decision. These creatures what us to follow their bird brain ignorance. 3 feathers from the same bird. That’s why they are attracted to the “Party First” USA second mentality. After all, the host of the party, will dictate to them all they need to know and shove them back into their Foxy little den. So much easier that way for them. Like to be tucked in and suck on their paws. Ahh that the life..
You really need to work on shortening your posts. Also your spelling. Your logic is pretty crazy and hard to follow, and the spelling makes it even worse.
What's with your obsession with foxes?
Are you seriously using moveon.org as your source for a link? Talk about biased. I wouldn't take anything those morons say seriously.

He may have twiddled his thumbs but the hostages came home alive. Bush took us to war in Afghanistan, no problem with that except that he didn't finish and get bin Laden before he started another and uncalled for war with Iraq. Ten years, thousands of American dead, and billions of dollars wasted we are finaly getting out. The killing and hate hasn't stopped, which tells me that it was just another senseless and unwinable war, that was fought just to suit the Shrubs over inflated ego. Looking back it just might say something for twiddling ones thumbs. Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with going to war against our enemies, but by damn when we do we need to win and they need to never want it to happen again. Yes Bush was the worst to ever reside in the White House, and Obama isn't much better. Just remember that had the Shrub not been so bad we might never have had Obama, lets face it after eight years of Bush, anyone the Democrats ran was going to best any Republican.

Please explain the Bush Screwups.
Bush holds the record for job growth with 52 consecutive months of growth. During the Bush Administration we were at less than 5% Unemployment, had 5% GDP Growth, record month to month Job Growth, Record Tax Revenue thanks to the Bush Tax Rate Cuts for all Taxpayers while the Evil Rich paid more of those Taxes than ever before.
Then the Electorate decided to give Congress and the Senate to Pelosi and Reid, and bang, everything began to go down hill. I'm sure it was a coincidence, just like the Democrat House refusing to investigate and reform Fannie and Freddie as President Bush wanted them to do, but there were too many Democrats getting rich running the place. Let's see, Franklin Raines $90 Million, Jamie Gorelick (yes that Jamie Gorelick)$20 Million, Rahm Emmanuel (bingo)$20 Million, and good old Barney Frank and Maxine Waters defending it all.
Oh yeah, funny how the biggest Bush era Deficit is only one third the size of the smallest Obama Deficit. Isn't that a hoot?
Without willfull ignorance, there would be no Democrats or RINOS.

How does anyone explain a Bush screwup, you can't. He rode his daddies name to everything he ever got, except the surplus Clinton left him and which he turned to a record deficite in less than a year. Every bussiness he ever ran he bankrupted while making millions for himself and all on his daddies name and influence peddling. I guess I just don't remrmber getting my multimillion dollar tax cut. And Obama well just another clueless puke. Democrats getting rich soooo much worse than Republicans getting rich. They all do it, CROOKS one and all. Like I said thousands dead, billions wasted, and the budget in the toilet, all on the Shrubs watch. So like you said just the facts maam just the facts.

Bush tried to tell ALL about what Barney and company would do for the economy with the housing policy- Clinton and Carter thought should be in place. No one listened ...too bad! get it right silly!

Democrats always conveniently forget to mention that the Democratic Party controlled the Senate and House of Representatives from Jan 3, 2007 – January 3, 2009. The economy tanked in 2008 under the Democrats' watch. Barney Frank was Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee from Jan 4, 2007 until Jan 3, 2011. The Bush blamers always forget these documented facts
of HISTORY.

The tech stocks boomed during Clinton's time but it crashed during 2000-2002.... before Clinton left office. During that time, the market lost $5 trillion. Bush took office in January, 2001. He had to deal with this market crash...... but you
never heard him complain about it or blame others, did you? THEN he had to see us through 9/11/01.......... again, you never heard him
complaining. He faced and dealt with both things straight on....... and went through congress to get the support of BOTH Republicans and Democrats to go to war. He did what a president should do........ he took care of business according to OUR laws....... unlike what we have now that gets "permission" from the NATO to get involved in Libya ...... without going to Congress as is the law.

The GOPUX's Romney has an impressive list of accomplishments:

- is guilty of felonies/fraud/lying about when he left Bain

- may be guilty of multiple felonies by dodging taxes overseas for years

- may be guilty of VOTER FRAUD by lying about his state of residence

- may have paid ZERO taxes for 10-12 years

Why doesn't the POS release his tax returns? Maybe HE CANNOT. The tax returns are so toxic that Ann ****face Romney says they provide AMMUNITION for the Democrats.

Wow, you really have a nasty mouth. You seem to really have a huge problem with females. You sure had to use the term "may be" a lot. What's up with that? You mean you have doubts about the lies Obama is telling you?
If Romney hasn't paid any taxes in 10-12 years, don't you figure the IRS would be involved by now? Your arguments are extremely weak.

You just don't get it.You choose to ignore the damage the republicans have and are doing.are you blind? The republican legislature in north Carolina just laid off 12,000 teachers in a state that lags behind must others in education.Then...they gave attorneys in law firms a 50,000$ tax break.But...republicans are perfect? Most of the DEFICIT WAS ALREADY IN PLACE when Obama became president! BUSH....8 years..remember? BOTH parties have to be held accountable! We aren't talking about your favorite football team here people...right or wrong! As l as experience...how many years of Presidential experience does ROMNEY have? You DO KNOW THAT OBAMACARE is based on ROMNEYCARE don't you? Don't just read a republican or democratic LINK and think you have the truth! You have to use unbiased sources.Otherwise we ate all just dancing to their tune.Think for Ourselves!
