So since Bush did a bad job he must be a progressive socialist?
Care to elaborate? Would his running mate Dick Cheney be the same?
Who is the 12% of congress that is ok, or is that just some random stat you made up.

Thank you for this. Show him for who he really is..A liar and a cheater.
Name a single candidate is either party who isn't. It's like a requirement. The list of who isn't would be much shorter. But I'm sure whoever someone is supporting is on the short list, the others are the problem.
Crazy how people on this site support Sanders so much but we all know what socialism and socialist governments do to our privacy.
Did Socialists create the NSA and the Patriot Act?
The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 ("FISA" Pub.L. 95–511, 92 Stat. 1783, 50 U.S.C. ch. 36) is a United States federal law which prescribes procedures for the physical and electronic surveillance and collection of "foreign intelligence information" between "foreign powers" and "agents of foreign powers
CNET reported in 2008: Months before the Oklahoma City bombing took place, Biden introduced another bill called the Omnibus Counterterrorism Act of 1995. It previewed the 2001 Patriot Act by allowing secret evidence to be used in prosecutions, expanding the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and wiretap laws, creating a new federal crime of “terrorism” that could be invoked based on political beliefs, permitting the U.S. military to be used in civilian law enforcement, and allowing permanent detention of non-U.S. citizens without judicial review.* The Center for National Security Studies said the bill would erode “constitutional and statutory due process protections” and would “authorize the Justice Department to pick and choose crimes to investigate and prosecute based on political beliefs and assocLink
Trump Tower was built by S&A Concrete, whose owners were “Fat” Tony Salerno, head of the Genovese crime family, and Paul “Big Paul” Castellano, head of the Gambinos, another well-known crime family.

Did it ever occur to you that people know Trump's nose isn't clean? And perhaps people know that Bush/Clinton/Sanders/(insert rest of the candidates here) are also dirtbags?
I mean this with respect...and no diss against you personally: Anyone who thinks this election is about finding a white knight with a spotless record is an idiot. Anyone who thinks that this election is about finding out who has the least dirt is an idiot.
This election is about doing something different than what we've done before - whether it's Sanders and socialist ideas, Trump and his business savvy and bluntness, Biden and his awkwardness, creepiness, and (again) big mouth, or even Rand Paul and his...pipe dreams.
No other candidate for the White House this year has anything close to Trump’s record of repeated social and business dealings with mobsters, swindlers, and other crooks. Professor Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian, said the closest historical example would be President Warren G. Harding and Teapot Dome, a bribery and bid-rigging scandal in which the interior secretary went to prison. But even that has a key difference: Harding’s associates were corrupt but otherwise legitimate businessmen, not mobsters and drug dealers.
Trump’s career has benefited from a decades-long and largely successful effort to limit and deflect law enforcement investigations into his dealings with top mobsters, organized crime associates, labor fixers, corrupt union leaders, con artists and even a one-time drug trafficker whom Trump retained as the head of his personal helicopter service.
...piecing together the long history of federal filings, court records, biographical anecdotes, and research from my and Barrett’s files[, w]hat emerges is a pattern of business dealings with mob figures—not only local figures, but even the son of a reputed Russian mob boss whom Trump had at his side at a gala Trump hotel opening, but has since claimed under oath he barely knows.
