IT'S NO WONDER HE HAS TO READ WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE WORLD
The Obama family also is planning a longer-than-usual summer vacation to Martha's Vineyard for two weeks in August, where last summer the president golfed nearly every day on the island.
Obama has golfed every weekend since Washington's weather got clear enough to allow it in April, save a week when he was in Asia.

So what your saying is Obama can't fix it even with two terms, but he can blame someone for his inability to do so. I will give you that Bush raised the national debt $4.9Trillion during his 8 years, Obama is doing far better, he has raised the national debt $7Trillion in only 4 years. At the rate we're going, we should be able to double the national debt during Obama's 2 terms.
Bush spending took the debt frm $5.8 Tri to $12.4 Tri, or $6.6 Tri in additional debt plus the surplus

These people don't realize when they lie about everything you can check their facts with a couple clicks. They look so stupid. If it makes them feel good, what difference does it make? You just have to feel sorry for them after awhile.

When Bush left office the national debt was $10,626,877,048,913 today it is $17,533,088,637,500. Using your progressive math, if you had 10 apples and now you have 17 apples that is an increase of 5 apples.

The worst terrorist attack on American soil happened on his watch when Osama bin Laden’s finally got an inept pathetic republican American president who was weak when it came to national security… the economy crashed, millions lost their jobs, a whole city was lost (Katrina), and an unnecessary war in Iraq was started off of lies.
<quoted text>
More uninformed ignorance from a delusional right-wing tea-bagger… Iraq was going soooo well, if only Obama had kept the war going forever. He should have stayed with the whole idea of occupying that country for eternity. Forget that whole lie about democracy; what difference does it make that the Iraqi Parliament voted for the US to get out…
You’re an idiot.
<quoted text>
… and killed Osama bin Laden, decimated Al Qaeda, got the Stock Market to record highs, brought the unemployment rate below 6.5%, reformed health care and all without allowing a single 9-11 type terrorist attack on American soil…
Mission Accomplished, LOL!
It was the GREAT President Bush's tough on terrorist policies and waterboarding (that Odummy banned)...that captured bin laden. Now Obama is trying to steal credit from the GREAT President Bush's accomplishment. What a moocher.

Bush stopped looking for Bin Laden.

Putting aside Bush allowed Bin Laden to escape in Tora Bora.

Bush knew within 30 feet of where he was.

Thirty feet: that's across the street, American_Imbecile.

And Bush let him loose.

PS: the torturing got no intelligence. That's what Donald Rumsfeld said.

I guess you sources are better than he, eh, American_IMBECILE?
