The fact is we are all to blame. I voted for Bush as did alot of folks did. We were angry about 9/11 and our anger blinded us to the fact that the BushMaster were raping our a$$. Obama hasn't been able to accomplish hardly anything due to putting out fires that were already in motion when he came into office. My anger has cost me severely in my past and it's costing this country now. We are to blame for Bush as well as Obama. What kills me is the nation all but banned the Dixie chicks for making the slightest negative remark about Bush, but is alright for the media now to call Obama a liar and a terrorist. Why does he not get the same respect as bush? He certainly isn't any worse than bush. He is our president and when we show a total lack of respect for him. We show a toal lack of respect for this country. It makes us look weak and divided to the world.

Bush did his share of harm to this country and Obama has taken up exactly where Bush left off. I have trouble with accepting the truth and transparency that was promised by Obama. It does not exist.
As far as the news media saying anything bad about Obama,--I don't see it. They have let this man get away with everything. Just take a look at Benghazi for example. That whole thing was an obvious lie and and the truth is still being covered up. The same goes for Eric Holders Fast and furious gun deals. Now Obama would like to take your guns away but his dropping polls are stopping him. The economy is dismal and Obama refuses to cut spending and even try to balance a budget.I wish you and I could just keep spending more with less income. Oh that's right, He wants to raise taxes again. The man is an obvious socialist, so no I do not respect him but I do respect his rank of Office as the President of the United States. To be clear he is not the first President that I have had no respect for and probably not the last.

Yes, it went over your head. The demons in each of our heads are the different people that we blame our troubles on. They simply trouble us. I may have one or two and you may have only one. They might very well be different people and probably are depending if we think as a liberal or a conservative. I don't know why it is that way because one would think that facts are facts and one can only see facts one way. As I have said before I am a realist. That does seem to bother some people but I see things that are ugly as ugly. I see good as good. I see evil as evil. I normally can smell a scam 10 miles off. It isn't always easy being me because I have never been able to wear rose colored glasses to ease my expectations or my pain of seeing bad people continuing to fool and take advantage of many people of the world.

Do you speak of me? I am transparent and what you see is what you get. I do not mince my thoughts or words no matter who it is about. I am only human and I am not God. Therefore I do not judge. I see things through a conservatives eye. But being a realist gives me some libertarian qualities also. You do not have to agree with me as that is what America is about. All I ask is for you to give me a fair hearing and get the facts. If you prove me wrong than I will admit it. If you are wrong, then you admit it. That is all I ask of anyone.

fair nuff.saying something is 'over someones head' and maybe they should try to figure it out just seems a little judgemental to me-but who am I to judge.besides me,there seem to be a few others that did know exactly what you meant,either.

Typical Right Winger - when you F.. up the country you blame moderates for not being able to stop you from doing it.

Man up. This debacle is yours. Not mine or my friends. You broke it - you bought it.

Don't try to share your guilt with those if us you attacked when we tried to educate you on the idiocy of your schemes. And if those who supported this unnecessary war feel no guilt - they are truly sociopaths. Marines in body bags and Trillions borrowed and wasted have to cause guilt and remorse in any rational mind.

Instead, join the rational folks in objecting to Obama's continuation of Bush's Right Wing Corporate Policies.

Having been so so so so wrong, so often, perhaps this anniversary will cause some Right Wingers to stop attacking, and instead join, the people who obviously make better choices and obviously place the country's welfare ahead of their own.

Hope springs eternal.

Just curious. How do you explain the following promises he made and flip flopped on?

-allowing 5 days of public comment before signing any bills
-NO NEW TAXES on a family making less than $250K a year
-100% transparency in his administration
-support of traditional marriage 1 man-1 woman
-end income tax for seniors making less than $50K a year
-remove earmarks from PORK projects before he signs any bill
-bring ALL our troops home within ONE year
-put the Health Care negotiations on CSPAN
-NO LOBBISTS IN HIS ADMINISTRATION
-close Guantanamo
- to RESIGN if he didn't cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. I believe he stated that he should be a one term president.
-UNITE THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY

I guess all of that is Bush's fault, too, huh? I can't believe that you die hard libs are STILL not seeing the handwriting on the wall. Obama has lied to you and the people of this country until I don't know what else he CAN lie about. Bush screwed up and certainly needed to go, but for God's sake, man. OPEN YOUR EYES.
Great post.

What's amazing is how:

Right Wingers ignore how Obama governs exactly like Bush - but with a brain;
and
Left Wingers ignore how Obama governs just like Bush - but with a brain.

Bush/Cheney kept the Right Wing troops in line waving the flag, claiming he was "protecting" normal folks from crazy socialist commie leeeeeeeberals.

Obama keeps the troops in line by waving the flag and claiming he protecting the normal folks from crazy, fascist Right Wing Wackos.

The sad thing is, to a very small degree, both are somewhat true, but both are distractions from the real issues - who has the money- and who gets more money.

NUT!
Always looking for someone to blame for the failure of your generation! You had the best and you squandered it with your greed and hate of people you didn’t and don’t understand.

Not one politician in the history of the world has not made campaign promises they couldn't or wouldn't keep. You always bring up Bush!! Bush and his administration not only told lies, the lies they told got lots of good people KILLED and spent OUR money on wars we couldn’t win and were fought due to the lies he told.“Weapons of Mass Destruction”,“We have won the war in Iraq”“We will kill Osama BinLaden” and on and on.

NOBODY saw the economic meltdown coming and NOBODY had a damn clue what to do about it now or then. They had no clue because there was and is no easy fix for YEARS of bad judgment.

YOU have some serious mental issues. For GODS sake man open YOUR eyes.

Actually, I agree with you, to a degree, except I don't think Obama has any more of a brain than Bush has. That's just a left wing "phrase" which, for some reason in the eyes of disappointed left wingers, makes Obama seem a little "better". Not so. During the Bush years, the people thought he was protecting our country from another attack. As it rocked on, it became obvious that the Middle East was/is a lost cause....actually always has been, but we were frightened by 9/11 and the war raged on.....to the benefit of contracters, etc.(those who had a dog in the hunt.)
Obama is an empty suit with an extreme narcissistic personality who is keeping the hate of EVERYONE BUT leeeeeeeberals going at full tilt. In the last few years, I've given a lot of thought to how this country has progressed down the path of destruction and although I was one of those who thought those who claimed the two parties were the same were just conspiracy theorists, I've come to the conclusion that those people were/are right. It didn't start with Bush and barring a miracle, it won't end with Obama.
The citizens ARE totally kept off balance by distractions from the real issues. That is how we have gotten to this point. We are constantly being distracted and that is by design.
