13. It is good to remember how bad Bush was.
Extremely important! Beyond important!

A list of his terrible policies should be stapled to every campaign poster of every republican running from now until the year 2525. We should be banging the drum with every terrible thing he has ever done, every liberty he has every wrecked, every tax break he has ever given to his worthless billionaire buddies, and every war-crime he has ever indulged in in his quest to bankrupt the federal government in order to shrink it.

In fact that should be the packaged propaganda piece from our side. The Republicans bankrupted us on purpose and their trickle down bullshit was theft. All of this was a scheme to fit into the Grover Norquist mold of drowning government.




But... when we recall why he was so bad, we have to bear in mind that there are dedicated bunches of DLC dipshits that sided with him on too many of his bad policies that screwed us.

29. I have been as frustrated as anyone with some of Obama's shortcomings, but....
there is absolutely no comparison between President Obama and what baby shrub did to the country. We will be living with the consequences of that disaster of an administration for a long time. On the other hand, IMO Obama has been a net plus so far although he needs to do much more.

34. Unless and until he starts resolving the middle class issues like jobs
unemployment, foreclosures, outsourcing, and such, instead of all these giveaways to big biz, big banks, Blackwater/Xe et al, and wall street; I don't see him as substantially any difference. And like many others, in the past two years, my lot in life has sunk to an all time low, like not by a notch or two, but by a whole friggin' ladder worth of rungs.

Sorry, he isn't making the grade any better from what I see.

He is not ABLE to do ANYMORE than "they" LET him do, lest he be killed. Who is "they," you may ask. THAT my friend, is the 64K question. Although, I've got a pret-ty good idea. That's why what he has accomplished and will accomplish in the future is not going to be of the magnitude that you desire. Get used to it.

110. If he is physically frightened, then he should step aside for Biden.
And if Biden can't do it, he should step aside for Pelosi, and so forth, until we get someone who isn't scared.

126. It's going to take far more than a presidency to undo a
corporatist, capitalist society. It's going to take a 'revolution.' Biden can't do it either and neither can ANY 'ONE' person. Face it! Corporations have a strong hold on this country and believe me, they are more powerful than any one person, party or political office.

141. He doesn't behave like a man who is a scaredy-cat. But he'd be a fool not to know he's a target
And Barack Obama is no fool. Not a coward. Not a fool.

This perception is probably an age-related thing. I was 16 when JFK was assassinated, and political assassinations of Democrats and social progressives punctuated my life from then on.

Ted Kennedy's kids remember there were years when he kept a bullet proof vest hanging in the closet with his coats, and would put it on whenever he left the house.

Reality sometimes sucks.

Edited on Tue Aug-24-10 11:40 PM by Aaria
and the center piece of the party would be the voting machines going in the river. Until we get control of our elections we will have to put up with the politicians they give us. The recent NC Senate race is a glaring example of how bad it has gotten. When a person is elected by a wide margin according to the machines and when the mail in ballots are counted the opposite outcome, comes shining through and not a peep in the press about it. As Stalin said, " it doesn't matter who votes, only who counts them."

122. Have you any concept
of how long it takes to clean up eight years of Bush shit pile? Bush's pimple popped just a couple of months before the 2008 election and spewed over ALL of us. And just like the picture in the OP, he's the one who fucked you and caused your last two years of grief. I haven't agreed with Obama on everything, in fact have vehemently disagreed at times, but to say that the work he has done hasn't been any better is just wrong.

Think of a house that has burned down. You have to clear away the debris before you can start rebuilding. We have been in debris mode and will be for at least two more years. THAT's how bad Bush was.

Barack Obama has done the following:

Froze the salaries for top White House staff members. This is a largely symbolic act, but might be an important one.


Set a deadline for the closing of Guantanamo Bay. Some of his supporters would say this is a great thing because they believe it operates as something from the Dark Ages. Others believe this characterization to not be true, and that no plan will be put place to determine what to do with the prisoners. Time will tell.


Fast-tracked the process to apply new fuel standards to 2011 car models AND initiated steps to allow California to set its own standards for auto emissions that are stricter than that of the Federal government. Again, this is a measure that some of his supporters hail as a grand step forward, while his detractors (or flamers) point out that it could provide an additional severe drag on the economy, especially in car manufacturing areas.


Signed a detailed executive order to ban torture and inhumane treatment of prisoners.


Asked the military leadership to engage in additional planning necessary to execute a responsible military draw down from Iraq.


Released the interrogation memos without consulting the Bush staff and/or Bush about it. And they were only partially released some of the information in the memos were not made public.


Signed an executive order that restored a 30-day time frame for former presidents to review records before they are released. It also eliminated the right for the vice president or family members of former presidents to do the reviews.


Signed an executive order that requires that appointees sign forms saying that they were not hired because of political affiliations or contributions. This is far from an unbeatable measure, but is an important early step towards cleaning up governmental hiring policies. It is easier to prove someone lied when their signature is right next to the statement in question.


Signed an order banning gifts from lobbyists and banning anyone from working in an agency they had lobbied in previous years. Promptly made the order toothless by immediately granting a waiver to a former defense lobbyist.


Lifted a ban on giving federal money to international groups that perform abortions or provide abortion information.


Granted his first TV interview as president to Al-Arabiya, a channel described as a "voice of moderation" to the Middle East. His supporters call this a very smart move to help angered nations and groups feel a bit less cast aside, and let them know that they need not resort to violence to be made a part of the world discussion. Detractors point out that this is the type of thing Neville Chamberlain would have done, though a TV interview and "the Munch Agreement" are leagues apart.

And that was just the first week.

So chew on that and decide if you think Bush would have done any of those things.

Yes, there is much work to be done. But I will never agree that Obama is no better than Bush.

31. I've been thinking about that... Pres. Obama has accomplished A LOT
and it's still not good enough. He's being criticized by both sides as if he's the worst president this country has ever had. You can't tell me with a straight face that racism has not played a role in this. The left is NOT immune to subconscious racism--performance ratings have been shown to be affected by race.

41. That excuse doesn't work anymore.
Yes Bush left the country in shambles* when he left office, but Obama seems hellbent on continuing those failed policies. The only discernible change has been the party and person that occupies the office.

I don't expect Obama to turn the country around on a dime, however he's had plenty of time and a Dem congress to make inroads. Instead that advantage has been frittered away for further corporate giveaways and the financial system is still in disarray. Hell Obama is even willing to bargain away rights in order to get legislation passed (like he did with women in order to pass the health insurance company bailout bill).

And yes, I also realize that Congress doesn't march in lockstep. That's where leadership kicks in. Of course it doesn't help that the Obama administration openly detests the very base it claims to represent.

All the "but..but Bush" excuse making in the world isn't going to quell the growing dissatisfaction. And if Obama isn't responsible now, then when?! Obama isn't the first president to inherit a lousy situation.

*Don't forget that Clinton was the one that repealed GlassSteagall and gave us NAFTA. Lousy policies aren't exclusive to one party.

73. Because uncalled for personal attacks are the mark of the cream of the crop of intelligence, right?
Yeah, we should "shut the fuck up" and be good polite foot soldiers and do as you masters told us. Yeah, that is so monumentally different from the game plan Bush brought for 8 long years. LOL!


Funny to see the DLC and its spin machine's ball bearings wearing out and the wheels coming off... at least you guys are being more genuine with your virulent disdain for the left.

66.  FDR reversed the great depression in less than two years?
"Obama isn't the first president to inherit a lousy situation."

FDR reversed the Great Depression in less than two years?

I thought it took longer, took struggles, took patience, and took time. That's what I get for thinking...

Why not become an Independent? Green? or whatever?

97. Just because we don't see eye-to-eye with Obama on several issues...
Doesn't mean we quit supporting our local Democrats, or Democrats in general.

I think the main complaint is that we just want Obama to act more like a Democrat, instead of Republican-Lite with all his conservative cabinet picks and sell-out on HCR and FinReg, his stance against same-sex marriage, etc. If Obama stood firmly for Democratic values, there would be few complaints...

I mean, if no one speaks up, how do we really expect Obama to move to the Left on issues that are dear to us?

Tired of hearing about him wanting to work with Republicans when all they do is laugh at him and tell him to go to hell. All they want is to be back in power. Don't get it at all... :(

46. brilliant
I was reading the comments from an article from early February of 2009, and it was quite telling how many people were saying they already disapproved of him, even though he had only been in office for a week or two. Sigh.

There's one thing I can gladly thank Bush for: teaching me that the "greater of two evils" can be pretty fucking bad.

128. I agree it needs a bit of "toning". The problem is, there are so many ways we could all come
together and do these simple things.

If we can gather THOUSANDS to send roses, then we could do this.

But, we won't. It's much more fun to call people "the stupid" rather than to work on helping them to understand.

86. George W Bush also lied America into two illegal, immoral and unnecessary wars.
His Poppy did the same. Throw in Prescott continuing to do business with Hitler after NAZI Germany declared war on the United States and we have multigenerational traitors. The fact they're not in jail speaks volumes about American justice and the state of democracy.

78. The worst thing about Obama's presidency has been
the stunning absence of a clear and consistent narrative re: what he is actually accomplishing! This message should be ongoing, loud and unwavering ... especially as an antidote to the repub's well-oiled hysteria machine, aimed directly at bringing Obama down. We also need an antidote to the "snippy jokester dude" Robert Gibbs, who's job it is to speak every day on behalf of the President of the United States. Replacement, please!

81. For example, how many times have we heard about the credit card reforms?
The final phase went into effect this week, and barely a peep from the MSM. The reforms are not earth-shaking, but unlike HCR or the bank bill, they are *actual* reforms.

These guys really can't manage a news cycle. Gibbs has got to go.

85. Agree... Obama's PR limps along, and sounds defensive most of
the time.

Obama should stand up in front of the image of the man who fucked us over a million ways...

and call out Boehner, McConnell, and Fox News for getting us into this mess, where we seem to be
"spinning our wheels" as my old boss used to say.... the mud and muck and slime from the swamp of the Bush years needs to go away, but all those slimeballs remain, didn't get kicked out... no wonder Obama hasn't done as much as we would have liked in 18 months.

We could just as well gather it for educational purposes.

There is also a full-page ad in the NYT..... lots of things we could do, if we changed our focus.
