I was going to write a long drawn out answer, but after seeing that link, I can't do any better myself. For those looking for an answer to this question, look at that link.

Speaking of rose tints, can you name the solutions that George Bush came up with during his eight years in office? Uhnha....thats what I thought.
We are over five years into Obama's administration, lamenting over Bush is totally irrelevant - Obama continued most all of the Bush policies. The worst criticism of Bush is that he IS the blame for us getting shafted with the Obama administration.
That's all you have, though. Whenever anyone says anything bad about Obambi, you go after Bush. Or better yet, you play the race card. You people need better arguments if you want to make the current POtuS look better than the last one.
BernietheMovieGuy, I'm not one of these rah rah guys for either party! It's tradition in our country to give credit or blame to the person who is office. Today I see "fans" of both parties refusing to acknowledge (anything) good about the other.
Again nothing you say has anything to do with the question you are supposed to be answering - a tactic right out of the liberal playbook - change the subject or raise a straw man or answer a question that was never asked.
tsadjatko, Let me spell it out for you so you'll understand. I don't believe ANY president (Democrat/Republican) has or is destroying America! My answers illustrate there is no proof America is worse off than it was in 2009 when Obama took office.
Bush is the last representation of a republican president. So unless you pick a smarter candidate, we can't talk about anyone else. You want Romney? He was more confused than Bush! The man with no solutions is worse than the man with some good ones.
Like who didn't get your point? You continue to make the subject anything other than the question like the 252 reasons I supplied as an answer. Just another playbook tactic, belittle your opponent. You are so transparent.
I'm saying no president is perfect. Is Obama making some bad decisions? Absolutely. Is he destroying the country? I don't think so. It is better now than before he took office.
If you actually read the 252 ways President Obama Has Systematically Destroyed America you'd see how irrelevant Bush is and how we aren't "better off" than before BO took office - name one Bush policy BO hasn't continued that makes us better off.
You want to look at Bush. lol. Obama had to clean up his mess since he took office, and still cleaning. Now people want to blame him for the problems Bush ignored. Bush had Homeland Secruity. He never cared about the economy. Thats why the Dems won.
Sri T, if Bush "never cared about the economy" and Obama, by your obvious implication, does, then why are we $17 TRILLION in debt?
It may have something to do with Bush's "war on terror". That's where his attention was, not on the economy. You can't have both. Let's face it, the war was a waste of lives and money.
Personally, I like the idea of keeping our foreign enemies off balance so they can't fly planes into our tallest buildings. But I digress. We were only $4 Trillion in debt when he left office even with the wars going on.
Sri T why didn't you answer my question?you can't name 1 bush policy that caused the financial crisis of 2008(directly attributable to liberal policies not Bush)http://www.humblelibertarian.com/2011/08/bush-20-1...
We can point fingers all day but nothing changes without "good" solutions. You must admit whenever Republicans become president lately, (ex) Bush(father and son) dark clouds cover America until they leave. Dems clean up, then Reps destroy it again.
30% un- or under employed, $17 Trillion in debt and people losing their healthcare. Yet for the last five years, I see no Republican in the White House. Care to elaborate on those dark clouds? Sounds to me like you're pouring water into a sieve.
You can't go by propaganda numbers. Propaganda is designed to manipulate and brainwash the public. You can only judge when the term is complete. We ran Bush #1 off after one term. Clinton cleaned up with a surplus then Bush #2 came. Dark clouds again
Actually, the propaganda number is the one the administration keeps touting, which is 6% unemployment. Closing your eyes to reality doesn't make it go away even if the White House DOES choose to ignore it and the media chooses to puppet report it.

First off the question is aimed at conservatives of which you obviously are not one, secondly you simply spout left wing propaganda and there fore are incapable of even answering this question because Obama zombies are blind to the truth.
If you don't remember the disaster of George Bush you are indeed a zombie. It's all propaganda until it affects your life, until your company shuts down or needs a bail out. Iraq was propaganda too? Weapons of mass destruction. Never happened right?
tsadjatko. I'm actually a moderate Republican! I just don't buy the fact that party loyalty is above all else. I voted for Ronald Reagan. None of the stats I mentioned are of the "Zombie variety". Clearly (you) don't remember the start of 2009!
Thank you for confirming all I said about u- a moderate Republican is as far from conservative as a liberal democrat, who u voted for 30+ years ago has noting to do with conservatism or who you are now. You are clearly using left wing talking points
Moderate Republican? You're part of the problem, Scorpio. RINOs seem to belive that the best way to fix our country is work the same agenda as the Democrats. You're part of the reason why the conservative movement arose and why it's necessary.
BernietheMovieGuy, Moderates aren't blindly loyal. They're thinkers! They look for the best solution regardless of party. Extremists will never succeed on a national level. Reagan would be considered moderate compared to the Tea Party!
Therein lies the problem with RINO philosophy. Conservative thought is purely common sense and logic rolled into a sound fiscal plan designed to reset the ship of state on a path toward ressurection of a great nation. RINOs simply accept failure.
Truth is Bernie there is no such thing as a moderate republican.It's a trick liberals use to make themselves acceptable to conservative thinkers. One is either conservative or liberal, there is no in between & DS's liberal talking points prove it
