Bush should shoulder plenty of the blame. The tax cuts, the Patriot Act, and the two worthless invasions are his to wear.
However, Bush was either a much better liar, or a much better patsy, because he always seemed believeable. Either he was being played very well by
TPTB, or he was really committed to the things he was doing.
Obama on the other hand, made completely empty promises, and he reeled me in during the campaign, but he hasn't even tried to mask his intentions
while president. He speaks out both sides of his mouth with no problem. He entirely reverses his stance depending on his audience. He gives
wonderful orations, and then doesn't do a thing to back them up.
Bush never gave wonderful orations, but whatever he did accidentally let slip, he followed through on, even when it was the wrong thing to do.
For me personally, I'd rather have a president I disagreed with, follow through on his agenda, than a president that says everything I want to hear
and doesn't do anything about it.
