I asked allsogreat to own what G. W. Bush did that made President Obama inherit a huge mess. He refused, because apparently, I asked in the wrong thread.

This would be the right thread. I'm waiting with bated breath.

I started this thread by posting a "AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA " by Lou Pritchett.....the letter had nothing to do with GWB. It seems now that the only way the LW's can defend Hussein O'Bama is to try to bash GWB. Hussein O'Bama's mediocre performance has nothing to do with GWB. LW's should try to refute the letter, rather then try to divert the intent of the thread....maybe their not up to it.......
Gracious. It hurt to read that. I know people complain about grammar and spelling nazis (which, by the way, kinda Godwin?) But I can't help myself. You get to spell atrociously, that's your right. I get to announce that it hurts my eyes, and correct you.

"Maybe they're not up to it."

There is no apostrophe in President Obama's last name unless it is there to show ownership. No, you don't get to stick one in there just to be funny. It's not funny, therefore. See how that works?

"Hussein" Yes, that is his middle name. Are you aware that King Hussein of Jordan was an amazing man? Or do you just throw away whatever doesn't fit into the very small portion of your brain you've alloted for fact-finding?

Ready when you are, home skillet!

Let's start with the truth; as far as I know, you never once ask me "to own what G. W. Bush did that made President Obama inherit a huge mess." so don't start a thread by being misleading.

I don't intend to defend GWB, don't like the guy and never did. You brought the subject up and seem to be fixated on GWB, you defend him!

Instead of waiting with "bated breath", just hold your breath until I reply to you again. We'd all appreciate it. If you don't like my spelling, don't read my posts. Simple as that.

I already explained that. I asked Conservative. YOU answered. Therefore. And? You've got nothing? Thanks. It's always good to know when people are operating in a self-created vacuum.

That fits Omama.

I think the reason that many conservatives want to lay the blame totally on Obama and not focus on Bush is because many of his fiscal ideals (such as deregulation, lower taxes, etc) simply did not work and now have a huge mess to clean up. They don't want to own up to the that unfortunate fact.

OR.....

If one chooses to use a contraction. Contraction (grammar) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

One might say, "Obama's a socialist," and, at least, their grammar would be correct.

I would that they could own up to anything on that front. The more they refuse, the more they show just who is incapable of having an open and honest dialog.

It depends on which conservative here you are talking with. I can easily name a few who are a pleasure to chat with due to their honesty.

Zyphlin
Danarhea
LaMidRighter
Dav
Digsbe
RightInNYC
Ockham
rightwingnutjob

And then there are others who do not let reality get in the way of their ideas.

Yes. In fact, I started a thread asking for names, because I knew that such people had to exist here.

:2wave: <waving west from a drenched Milwaukee.>

There is no shortage of reasonable conservatives on this site. The same can be said for this site's liberals and in-between independants.

There is also no shortage of absurd whackos either. You will get to know who they are. It won't take long. After a while, even the whackos will find a special place in your heart.

Welcome to the zoo.

I dont know...maybe you have missed the numerous times I have personally pointed out Bushs dismal economic policy and his debt spending as the reason why I left the republican party. Or the failure at securing peace after what can only be described as dramatic military victories against both the Taliban led Afghanistan and the Hussein led Iraq militaries. Ive never given Bush a free pass.

What you count as a defense is nothing of the sort. The simple fact is if Obama is so incompetent that he cant DO the job he shouldnt have RAN FOR the job. A leader doesnt spend two years making excuses, blaming others, and when all else fails, fallback to race baiting hate speech. Oh...we should have seen it when he started with Bill Clinton during the election, labelling him racist because he dared to question The Ones qualifications vs his wifes. And it has been non stop ever since. Disagree with hios policy ideas? Why...you must be a RACIST.

I held out great hope when Obama was elected. No...not 'that' kind of hope...but hope at least we could move forward in a lot of arenas. I think people were tired of 8 years of bitching, moaning, and just in general being at each others throat. That part was supposed to change. Yeah...umm...not so much.

Its not about defending Bush...its about expecting BOTH PARTIES in congress and the president to stop being whiney bitches, pointing fingers, and do the damn job. Both parties are culpable in our current 14 trillion dollar debt hole. Both parties played a role in the banking failures. Both parties contirbuted to policies which is now contributing to 10% active unemployment.

I didn't like how Bush spent money. I didn't like how he refused to secure the border. Obama is worse on both counts.
I liked the Bush tax cuts and it seems now the Dems might vote to keep them. Finally! The Dems might be doing something that makes at least a little sense. I doubt that Obama will be happy about though.
