U.S. Politics: Past Presidents, Do You Miss Me Yet?

Updated on January 7, 2017

Mission Accomplished

It's the Economy Stupid!

First Month for President Obama

Everywhere you turn, the Republicans are asking if we "miss him yet"; meaning George Bush of course. So, I thought I'd go down memory lane and see what there is to miss.

The first month in office and before 9/11- George Bush and Dick Cheney discussed ways to get back into Iraq and go after Sadaam Hussein. Then 9/11 happened and they were elated to have a way in. So, without just cause, they pin it on the Al Queda in Iraq and weapons of mass distruction.

The first month of the Obama Administration, the Republicans made a pact to become the Party of NO. Vote No, say No and by no means agree or help further any agenda that the Obama Administration wanted to proceed with.

The first month of the Obama Administration, he worked to start making his 500 campaign promises become a reality. Health Care Reform and getting our troops out of harms way and back to their families.

"Economy is In Great Shape"

As George Bush put it just a few months before the collapse of our economy.

"Our system is sound", then we hit a dire crisis and jobs were lost, homes were lost and he said, "Law shouldn't bail out lenders", then he did. And even as our economy was falling apart, he still couldn't answer questions.

As he told a reporter at a press conference, "I don't know, ask an economist, I think I got a "B" in economics".

An outstanding remark from the leader of our country. "Do you miss him yet?"

Bank Bail Out

The Bail Out Will Work

Just months earlier, George Bush felt that the law shouldn't bail out lenders, then he changed his mind and said "it would help the economy, over a slow period and it would take time".

Then the Automakers got into trouble due to the economic downfall and "he" chose to bail them out too.

The Republican Party members quickly fell in line behind President Bush to help with the bailouts. They never asked how are we going to pay for these. Bush said, it would leave this mess to the incoming President.

So, why then, if it was o.k. for the Republicans to support President Bush on bailouts without asking about the "deficit", are they today so concerned with the "deficit" under the Obama Administration?

Bail Out Automakers

Nothing New for the Future

Republican Plan for the Economy

What plans do the Republicans have for fixing the economy and creating jobs? Follow in George Bush's footsteps. Continue his agenda for Americans. If you miss him, you can look forward to more of the same under Republican control.

Americans deserve better from their Representatives. That's why they voted for "Change" in 2008. So before you thing of asking, "Do you miss me yet". Think about what you are asking....that part of history isn't worth reliving.

    Surprised you have had no other comments. Your article makes sense, maybe that is the reason. People in today's political climate aren't really interested in making sense; just in saying outlandish things and passing them off as truth.

    We can learn a lot by looking back. Specifically, the spending bills created by Bush and passed by the GOP controlled congress have left us in an unsustainable position economically. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around how the Bush Administration added 6 trillion dollars to the debt and there is not a whole lot to show for it.
