In regards to Obama vs. Bush, Obama has taken the abuses of George W Bush and driven them further and is now in the process of codifying them. The
Patriot Act under Bush created massive abuse of Executive power. Obama, who ran against these abuses, has not reversed them. His DHS has driven the
TSA to become a 4th amendment destroying, abusive agency it is. It was created by Bush, taken to its extreme by Obama. The signing of the latest NDAA
proves Obama's antipathy to freedom or welfare of American individuals.
Obama has driven the use of domestic drones. He clearly does not support civil liberties and has taken the door cracked by Bush and flung it wide
open. Its funny to watch liberals defend his murder of an American citizen without trial or investigation of any kind. If Bush, did that, they'd be
frothing at the mouth. Now, the DHS official policy is that anyone who vocally supports the Constitution is considered a potential domestic terrorist.
This happened under Obama and it is getting more intense.
As to foreign policy, I don't see any real divergence from Bush. Economic hitmen and Corporate/banking interests are given support at the expense of
American interests. He followed Bush's exact timeline in Iraq and he supports the same corporate crony leadership in Afghanistan. He supported a phony
war in Libya so the Banking interests could secure Ghadafi's gold, huge assets, and oil to bolster their failing socialist, debt laden economies
(because the banks own the Western world). Now he is sending "advisers" to Africa to fight against "injustice". Right smack where a poop ton of oil
was recently discovered. Sound familiar?
So, if based on Presidential performance, I'd say they both suck, but Obama's actions to help his corrupt, failing allies(same allies Bush had) are
far more catastrophic to the US than anything Bush did. Which is saying quite a lot.
If based on party performance and Democrats are supposed to be the people's party, all they have done in the last 40 years is help ensure, directly,
that an international, corporate/banking super elite has fully consolidated power on the planet. Why are we trusting them any more than the
