You've got to be kidding me. According to your warped logic, everything bad that happened to Bush was a carryover from Clinton, but everything bad that happens during Obama's Presidency has nothing to do with the prior administration.

Give me a break.

And yes, Cheney held secret meetings with energy companies and opened the floodgates to offshore drilling. His administration presided over the most corrupt MMS in the history of that agency which is supposed to regulate oil companies, which is saying a lot. And yes, he did very little to promote alternative energy which would compete with his precious oil companies.

Give me a break.

Actually, yes, I and a lot of people were upset about Obama's private meetings with insurance companies. We feel President Obama should be more open and transparent.

OUCH! You know it's gotta hurt when every time a liberal starts off with "I hate," and then goes on to rant about Bush and Cheney, they're hit smack in the kisser with stories of their Obamessiah doing the same thing...or worse. The stuttering silence that usually follows is very amusing.

Huh, I don't agree with everything President Obama does. I supported President Reagan. You really don't know me.

Here's what I know. The Republicans since Gingrich through Bush, Cheney, DeLay, Boehner and Palin have been among the worst politicians in our history. They have been massively corrupt, fiscally irresponsible and reckless in our foreign policy.

I strongly disagree with some of President Obama's positions. And that is a drop in the bucket compared to the disastrous Republicans who led us into the worst recession since the Great Depression, and the unfinished, costly, mismanaged wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Go ahead and pick at me. Others can make balanced judgments.

>>> Huh, I don't agree with everything President Obama does. I supported President Reagan. You really don't know me.

Well, first of all, of course I don't know you...this is an anonymous debate board. Second, supporting Reagan has nothing to do with people who obviously support, and apologize for, Obama now. Still, one has to wonder what could have happened to someone's ideology and common sense to make the leap from supporting a strong conservative like Reagan to a socialist like Obama.

>>> Here's what I know. The Republicans since Gingrich through Bush, Cheney, DeLay, Boehner and Palin have been among the worst politicians in our history. They have been massively corrupt, fiscally irresponsible and reckless in our foreign policy.

I'd know that too if I drank lots of kool-aid and got my information from the far-left newsletter. Fortunately, I don't...so I know that Gingrich was a very effective Speaker. Boehner has led the Republicans from down-and-out to crushing the Dems in every poll and re-taking the Congress in November, all in just two years. Bush and Cheney led the country through almost a decade of prosperity, greater security and victories in both Iraq and Afghanistan. And Palin...one of the most successful, popular governor's in Alaska's history...and now is also one of the most influential political "personalities" in the country and a constant foil for Democrats. The Dems, on the other hand, with the colossally inept Barry at the helm, are responsible for the economic collapse and their corrupt "leadership" has only led to MONUMENTAL debt, rising unemployment, reduced national security and gained us the animus of both ally and enemy alike.

>>> I strongly disagree with some of President Obama's positions.

Yes, you've been very vocal with your apologies...er...opposition.

>>> And that is a drop in the bucket compared to the disastrous Republicans who led us into the worst recession since the Great Depression, and the unfinished, costly, mismanaged wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Go ahead and pick at me.

I'd rather pick at the Dems who were responsible for the economic collapse, and Barry who's leading us through the "meteoric recovery" towards a second recession.

>>> Others can make balanced judgments.

Not if they're Obama supporters.

>>> "And yes, Cheney held secret meetings with energy companies and opened the floodgates to offshore drilling.

Actually, no...it was Clinton who signed the "Deep Water Royalty Relief Act" in 1995, to entice oil companies to drill in deep Gulf waters. And...here's another bubble buster...it was Obama who SPECIFICALLY gave the Deepwater Horizon rig authorization to drill in the Gulf...and also provided the regulation and oversight that led to the current spill.

>>> His administration presided over the most corrupt MMS in the history of that agency which is supposed to regulate oil companies, which is saying a lot. And yes, he did very little to promote alternative energy which would compete with his precious oil companies."

Again...um...no. It was Obama, after naming Salazar the head of the interior and overlord of the MMS, who presided over the current MMS scandal...but it's not surprising to hear the enthusiastic call of the liberal apologist..."Bush did it!"
