Name One Thing Bush Did That Wasn't A Disaster For Most Americans - I Dare You

Republicans complain non-stop about president Obama. I had a neighbor tell me the other day Bush wasn't so bad, but Obama is horrible. I asked him to name one thing Bush did a better job of than Obama. Of course he couldn't

Please help me out.

Please name one thing Bush did while in office that was good for my family.

2. He left on his last day. A President Cheney would have become Dictator Cheney.

I hope that this helps.

5. Medicare prescription coverage

Yes a "giveaway to Big Pharma" but it did help a lot of seniors, like my parents. Both are gone now but without the Medicare prescription benefit they would have paid well over $1000/month for their meds.

7. The Problem Is Medicare Part D Was Not Paid For

 

Seniors needed the help, and it did help probably most seniors, but it was all with borrowed money.

Their kids and grand kids will have to pay the bill with interest.

If crushing the kids to help granny is good, well, you call it.

BTW after watching the Bill Moyers show on how they smashed this bill through congress, I then became involved in politics for the first time.

Democrats had zero input on this giveaway/handout/welfare to PHARMA.

Remember, no negotiating prices. They charge what they want, and we the tax payer can't say anything.

8. Northwestern Hawaiian Islands Marine National Monument

Proclaimed by Bush in 2007. Not sure how much credit he really should get, but at least he didn't oppose it. That's all I have.

Sure as heck doesn't put him on the plus side. Not sure there are enough good deeds in this world he could do to make up for his failures, which are too numerous to mention here.

9. Yes, You Found The One Thing I Agree With! Good Job!

 

I can't say everything Bush did was bad and be honest.

Being 100% honest is a personal thing.

Bush did do one good thing in 8 years.

Signing the bill making the Hawaiian preserve.

Maybe even a couple other good things, making the total 99 to 1.
