Bush participated in the bailout of companies with RICH executives for goodwill. Bush would like to help those struggling out of goodwill so they can get up and go get a job.

The problem with all of these bailouts is that people abuse the system. The problem is these people who abuse the bailout of the government.

You may be waiting a longgggggggggg time if you want any postive outcome from this,

unless your one of the poorest americans who plan to upgrade your internet connection, get more food stamps and be able to afford hijacking some free HBO. In that case, dont worry, free everything as our new govt intends to help the weakest who pay no or little taxes, and make them comfy enough to want to use the system and live off it.
The rest of us will only pay higher taxes until we go broke.
It is the begining of the end, only way out will be the anti-christ to show up and I can see that coming shortly.

Guess this means we will now be negotiating with terrorists.

Maybe even bringing them over to the USA to give them more access to terrorize.

One thing Bush said was right on, when he said to note, we have not been attacked since 9/11........
it almost rung with song in that
whatever happens after jan 20th with the terroists is not because of him.

Clearly, Obama is not losing any time to stop the great achievements of the great American patriot President Bush and turn victory of our US troops against the Islamic terrorists to a defeat.
The truth about the Islamic messiah and the new leader of the Islamic world and the president of the American people is coming to light.
President Hussein was able to hide his tight political and financial connections and mutual interests with the Islamic terrorist regimes of the Middle East and especially Iran and Hamas using the liberal media of the New York Times and LA Times that are sponsored of al Jazeera.
President Obama could not wait even few hours to give freedom to the worst savage murderous Islamic terrorists on earth in Gitmo.
Now that he was elected, the Islamic rooted Messiah Barack Hussein Obama is 'paying back' his promised favors to the Islamic terrorist supporting regimes that supported his election campaign with more than 560 million dollars. The rights of Islamic terrorists that killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 and thousands US troops are sacred to president Hussein who became the leader of the Islamic world, declaring in his inauguration speech that he has the same interests of the radical Islamic regimes of the 'Islamic world'.
Clearly, the Jews were feared of the new president as they hurried to pull out of Gaza and leave their achievements far from being achieved.
The Jews know that the new Islamic Messiah President Hussein is bad news for them as he will support the same interests of the Iranian regime of Ahmadinajad who called for renewed holocaust and whose demands as represented by Hamas.
Evidently, Hamas and Hezbollah Islamic terrorists under Iranian regime call for the destruction of Israel and conversion the Jewish state to democratic state for Muslims and Jews with Jerusalem becoming international city of the world.

And we weren't attacked by terrorists on US soil anytime BEFORE 9/11 either... what's your point? The terrorists not attacking since 9/11 has nothing to do with Bush, let's be honest.
And none of us should judge Obama as our president because he was sworn in yesterday and that is not enough time to prove what he is capable of AS PRESIDENT. Try to look past, for one second, his accomplishments (or lack thereof) up until this point. You should give it some time before criticizing his efforts as our president.

Could be, but Hey, let's give him a chance and see what he does. Remember it's only two years before the next campaign starts and we can get the next Bush back in the White House.

This happens EVERY time a new president enters the white house. I guess the liberal BS media decided not to mention that so obama seemed like a superstar. Bush did the same thing, so did clinton and so on and so on........

perhaps Bush will be able to tell us of all the attacks that were thwarted after 9-11... like the one on Fort Dix where the young muslim men were caught with bombs in their trunk...the ones aimed against bridges.. surely you cannot be that naive to be unaware that there have been many attempts to attack America since 9-11.

President Obama has not had a chance to prove CHANGE but for once I do believe some things will change!

We all as Americans have to do our part! Before we look at the glass and say it is empty, what a wonderful time to proclaim it is half full.

The real question is to those who love to spew hate and violence, try choosing chance, hope, or positive and constructive critism.

You just may view your world that you helped made it into now a better place.
