I agree, all of that was blamed on Bush. Glad we cleared that up.

Was it right to blame it on Bush? Do two wrongs make a right?
Absolutely not. But, the double standard is ridiculous. Look, I like Obama as a man. He's a cool dude, and was a much needed change in direction. But, a lot of his promises haven't been achieved. Everything that was listed in this thread, that's being blamed on Obama, was at one point or another, blamed on Bush. All I'm saying is, if it's good for the goose, then it's good for the gander.
Blame where it is deserved is one thing (whether it be Bush or Obama) but the ludicrous, unsubstantiated, hateful rhetoric that people spewed about Bush and now do about Obama hurts our country. If we want things to be better we have to stand up against those types of tactics whether we agree with the policies of the candidates or not.
Again, I agree with you. I'm at the point were I can't stand either party. It's hard to believe we are this divided as a country. But, it's hard to look at Obama's body of work as our President, and call it a success. On the flip side, that can also be said about Bush. My point is, GWB was bashed in 2008 for many of the same short comings that Obama is getting bashed for now. What's the difference, other than Obama is black?
