I don't find Bush's personality (contrivances and all) to be all that endearing either. Tax cuts were the issue that put Bush over the top.

See I'd rather him use that money to pay off the deficit while lowering taxes rather than just giving the money back.

Ya Derrick and while your hero was in office we went from 5 trillion in debt to 12 trillion in debt.

His name is Derek, not Derrick. And I agree with you, Bush Jr. was a fiscal catastrophe (just like Reagan and his dad were) despite claiming to be a fiscal conservative. The debt rises that have been occuring under Obama were inherited from Bush Jr.

My apologies to Derek for misspelling his name I was drunk when I posted that lol. When Reagan took office we were like 800 billion in debt now its close to 13 trillion with no end in sight. Wallace was right in 1968 when he said theres not a dimes worth of difference between the two parties. The republicans are so fake with there message. We have got to stop this spending before we bankrupt this nation.

Are you drunk on all your posts?

Well I don't think the GOP is "trying" to bankrupt us but both parties have their head so far up their own asses that they aren't listening to the people. That's why tea partiers are winning on the right and on the left you have people like Joe Sestak and that guy out in Colorado who defeated Michael Bennett. It's time for real change. Not change In Name Only.

Oh yea the GOP is so great, Bush put us almost 8 trillion dollars more in debt and he had republican house and senate, but ya your right people are sick of this.

I think the GOP lost its way under Bush too. With Clinton in office the GOP knew how to say no to government programs and out of control spending. It wasn't until they took over congress that we ever had a balanced budget or surplus. Both parties have payoffs after elections are won and that results in more debt for our grandchildren.
