He is not much different, but he is a little more conservative on fiscal policy. However, he is MUCH better than Obama, as Bush was much better than Obama.

We had more jobs and less debt under Bush than we have now under Obama.
Romney will be a better president than what we have now!!!!

"At the time Bush took office the economy had grown at a 1.1% annualized rate over the previous three quarters to March 31 of the first year of Bush presidency (see Early 2000s recession). Bush had his tax cut plan approved by Congress in June.
Overall real GDP grew at an average annual rate of 2.5%. Between 2001 and 2005, GDP growth was clocked at 2.8%. The number of jobs created grew by 6.5% on average. The growth in average salaries was 1.2%. Growth in consumer spending was 72% faster than growth in income. Investment in residential real-estate soared, growing 26% faster than average.
A March 2006 report by the United States Congress Joint Economic Committee showed that the U.S. economy outperformed its peer group of large developed economies from 2001 to 2005.(The other economies are Canada, the European Union, and Japan.) The U.S. led in real GDP growth, investment, industrial production, employment, labor productivity, and price stability."

The main difference will be in who is controlling Congress. Clinton's good years were a direct result of the Republican controlled Congress. Bush's bad years were a direct result of the Democrat controlled Congress.

Obama is the one who is closest to the Muslims who want to change America into an Islamic nation.
Look up Osama Bin Laden's Letter To America!!!!
The goal of the Islam Extremists is to change America into an Islamic country. Islam will be the main way of life. No freedom of religion. No America as we know it.

When President Bush took office, the Senate was split 50-50 between the Democrats and Republicans. With VP Cheney's tiebreaking vote, the Republicans controlled the Senate until Senator Jim Jeffords from Vermont switched from a Republican to an Independent in June 2001 and sided with the Democrats, which controlled that Chamber until November, 2002.
The following is cut and pasted from the official Senate website http://www.senate.gov/pagelayout/history/one_... :
Note: From January 3 to January 20, 2001, with the Senate divided evenly between the two parties, the Democrats held the majority due to the deciding vote of outgoing Democratic Vice President Al Gore. Senator Thomas A. Daschle served as majority leader at that time. Beginning on January 20, 2001, Republican Vice President Richard Cheney held the deciding vote, giving the majority to the Republicans. Senator Trent Lott resumed his position as majority leader on that date. On May 24, 2001, Senator James Jeffords of Vermont announced his switch from Republican to Independent status, effective June 6, 2001. Jeffords announced that he would caucus with the Democrats, giving the Democrats a one-seat advantage, changing control of the Senate from the Republicans back to the Democrats. Senator Thomas A. Daschle again became majority leader on June 6, 2001. Senator Paul D. Wellstone (D-MN) died on October 25, 2002, and Independent Dean Barkley was appointed to fill the vacancy. The November 5, 2002 election brought to office elected Senator James Talent (R-MO), replacing appointed Senator Jean Carnahan (D-MO), shifting balance once again to the Republicans -- but no reorganization was completed at that time since the Senate was out of session.
