George Bush initiated almost every policy Obama is getting flack for. The federal debt? Bush and the republican congress operated the federal government at 20% (or about half a trillion dollars) over budget for 8 years, amassing 5 trillion dollars in debt and doubling the deficit. Bush started the bank bailouts, he signed the stimulus bill (which was actually a good thing, but whatever), he bailed out the auto industry, collectively putting us about 1 trillion dollars over budget this year and last year.
He also oversaw the financial collapse that lead to all that spending.
Barrack Obama? He tried to get us universal access to health insurance. Oh the shame.
George Bush? Told interrogators it was okay to do things like beat prisoners’ heads against concrete walls and floors because it wasn’t torture so long as they had a medic there.

Back to Barrack Obama, lets see what did he do? Well, he said america isn’t perfect when he was overseas. Oh, he gave the prime minister of england a bunch of DVDs and they turned out to be from the wrong region, that was embarassing. Of course that was because he didn’t yet have protocol people because he was trying to fill treasury positions to fix the economy, but it was still a screwup.
Lets see, what else did he do? He created a private army Americorpse and gave them half a trillion dollars to arm themselves… that is according to glenn beck. In reality of course this is complete fiction (feel free to google it yourself).
What else? He raised all of our taxes, right? The tea party people were out in force protesting against… the tax cut he gave them.
Okay well I’m sure I’ll think of something else bad he did. But for the moment lets see what bush did.
He made the world hate us. He got a lot of our soldiers killed. Started two wars which ended hundreds of thousands of civillian lives. He apparently hired a mercenary firm to fight our war for us that was run by an evangelical christian bent on killing as many muslim civillians as he could.
But that’s nothing, because Barrack Obama had a christian preacher who was a bit extreme. And he’s not an american citizen! And he’s also a secret muslim. And… and…
