|Kinda makes you sick, doesn't it?|
President George W. Bush was not an economic wizard. Even though we went to war, he requested – and received – a massive tax cut. Good for him; great business move for a conservative. Unfortunately, it was idiotic to think you could go to war and still cut taxes. Who's supposed to pay for all those bullets and bombs? That decision was just one reason for the massive deficits left by Bush at the end of his presidency.
Although he was brutal in his criticism of President Bush's deficit spending (Obama called it "unpatriotic"), our current president spent more money in his first four years than Bush spent in eight. He also continued many of Bush's policies that he had criticized with great drama on the campaign trail: The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the use of Gitmo for jihadist prisoners, and the bailouts of the powerful banks and members of the Progressive "elite."
It now seems that even the Progressive Socialists are having trouble with their “savior” Barack Obama:
EVEN DEMOCRATIC PARTY LOYALISTS STARTING TO WAKE UP TO THE FACT THAT OBAMA IS AS BAD AS BUSH....OR WORSE

Glenn Greenwald notes that even Democratic party loyalists are getting fed up with Obama’s Bush-like actions:
Even the most loyal establishment Democrats are now harshly denouncing the president for his war on transparency ….
This secrecy has become so oppressive and extreme that even the most faithful Democratic operatives are now angrily exploding with public denunciations.
(Greenwald gives numerous examples.)
The Hill reported last month:
A majority of voters believe President Obama has been no better than his immediate predecessor, President George W. Bush, when it comes to balancing national security with the protection of civil liberties, according to a new poll for The Hill.
Thirty-seven percent of voters argue that Obama has been worse than Bush while 15 percent say he has been “about the same.” [In other words, a total of 52% think Obama is just as bad as Bush. That was before the drone controversy - discussed below - went viral.]
