You all talk as if there were a real difference between having Bush put us deep into the hole and Obama digging it deeper.
The term Bushism is a neologism that refers to a number of unconventional words, phrases, pronunciations, malapropisms, and semantic or linguistics errors that have occurred in and defined the public speaking of former United States President George W. Bush
Yet people still followed and voted for him?
I don't think it's bias, but that's just my opinion.

Bush and Obama supporters....how would you feel right now if the names were switched?
What if this was really Bush doing this? Would you be supporting what is happening right now or would it still be ok because you think all of this spending is the right thing to do?
Do you admit the media bias?
THe same goes for Bush supporters...if this was Bush..would you still HATE what is happening...or would you defend it?
The problem is, you look at things from a ideological perspective, which can distract us from the bigger picture (we all do this, ALL of us). Both Bush and Obama are willing to spend until our nation is dead. This is because if they don't, our nation is dead.
I think that it's silly to talk about "media bias" in an era of the internet. I also think that it's silly to talk about media bias in an era of Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, and Glenn Beck (although I actually like Glenn Beck, a lot). The door really swings both ways.
I've come to the conclusion that roughly 50% of the population just picks a "team" and roots for it no matter what, just like they would a sports team.
