First, the economy was thriving under Bush until the Pelosi/Reid commiecrats took control of congress after the 2006 midterms. 2nd, Bush stopped playing golf out of respect for the military at war; Ocommie's played 90 rounds in 3 years.
And 3rd, how many foreign dignitaries does Ocommie entertain on his surfboard, you communist moron? Bush's Crawwford home was known as "White House West" because of the genuine work he did there.
________
When libs bash Bush for his Crawford vacations, why do they conveniently FORGET that Bush's visits to Crawford were WORKING vacations.... more like TELECOMMUTING than vacations...
Crawford was a fully functioning Western White House, with communications and staff equivalent to the WH in DC... He hosted foreign dignitaries there as well...
Visitors to the ranch have included:
• Russian President Vladimir Putin, November 2001
• British Prime Minister Tony Blair, April 2002

Working vacations? Do you think that Obama isn't "working"
when he's on vacation? You moron.

Bush vacations:

487 days at Camp David
490 days at Crawford
43 days at Kennebunkport

Bush spent 1/3 of his presidency goofing off.

That maybe a record.

An example of Bush's indifference to disaster:
A few days before Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans
Bush was warned that it might be the "big one." (it was)
What did Bush do in preparation?
He flew out to Arizona to help John McCain celebrate
his birthday.

Taliban not the enemy? I'm not sure where Biden gets his information, but the Taliban are definitely the enemy that consistently fired 107mm rockets at my chicken wire compound. It was the Taliban leaders we were raiding and getting intel on.

Joe can't hep it. He never completely sobers up, so his mouth goes off by itself. God forbid something sshould happen to the President, and Joe would step n for awhile. We would truly be screwed then.

Bush goes home to Texas. Your Kenyan lizard pisses away tens of millions at exotic resorts.

Under Bush we had a thriving economy. Under your Kenyan lizard and his commiecrats, we have utter economic ruin.

And the only "goof off" is your despicable subversive Kenyan communist fake, phony and fraud.

Now go swallow some of more of that steaming brown Kenyan koolaid, you need it.

Christie:'After Three Years Of Obama, We Are Hopeless And Changeless'...
Just 55% Between 16 and 29 Have Jobs...but Obama and his backers say, I’LL PIVOT TO JOBS JUST AS SOON AS ALL MY VACATIONS YOU OWE ME ARE OVER.
Although I understand your contempt on the Vacation tip, it's really business as usual for presidents, CEO's seeking bailouts, and jet-setting Congressmen/women, Governors and all the rest.

What really gets to me when I read about Obama & jobs, is why it appears that no one knows about the WIA program to facilitate the most reasonable efforts to that end. It's not that those you mentioned were born unemployed, but became so, after 50,000 factories shut down during the crash. They are not only unemployed now, but have non-transferable skills.

So Obama delivered the WIA program that is administered by the unemployment agency in each state. It offers $6,000.00 for training at local colleges or vocational schools,$50.00/mo in gas & daycare assistance. Placement assistance starts from day one.

The problem? The states! Those who live in states that did not offer this program need to occupy their statehouse and ask why they were not consider worthy of the opportunity to find employment and resume paying much needed state, local & federal taxes again.

Most people today are well past the narrow view of all our problems resting in the office of the president. Congress was recently punked out when Obama put them to task, to trim a mere 1.2 trillion from the national debt & they shot a blank. This of course was to quell the BS "He should do this" He should do that" that weak minds have been drowning in ever since Obama took office.

Do I agree with everything Obama does? No! But to the extent that I'm gonna sit here and assume he has all the power to do whatever he wants one minute and then blame him for such powerful damages the next, is.....well......asinine.

So for all the cooperation he gets from Congress and the unwillingness of the states to accept what he does push through, hell I'd take a vacation too.

The way you quit that kind of a boss is by the same strategy used for the Boston Tea party movement… In other words: refuse any more rule and support from foreign governments and foreign Federal Reserves, and start back producing an independent monetary or bartering system. Might I add that just like the war that followed the Boston Tea Party, a war may have to be fought after trying to separate from Fed. intervention.

Bush never blamed Clinton for one thing, and he could have, but he had more class. I want the Next President to blame Obama for every damn ignornant thing he did for 4 years, all the while correcting Obama's miserable mistakes. Unfortunately Americans will blame the affirmative action President as well they should, but there won't be another black President for a generation.

the bush administration dealt more damage to the environment than this country realizes,and we are powerless to change things politicaly...fact of the matter is ,alot of what obama has tried to do to implement neccesary changes has been halted by a government that has been bought by pharmaceutical and insurance companies,along with the oil industries,in which,by the way ,the bushes have a large interest...http://www.commondr eams.org/views04/0208-05.htm.. .http://www.rense.com/general1 4/bushsformer.htm...
obama,clinton,noone,stands to change the way things are going through the system in place as is...we as a people must rise up and say, "Enough!"and not be afraid to change our lives to make it clear that we have had our fill of being slaves to a system that does not care about the average citizen and has no regard for the environment...if we want to see change ,we have to become proactive...not just talk about it,but accept that each action we take must reflect the way we feel...
i am not waiting on a hero,i am trying to become one...what about you?
