Obama had cheap gas. He had the House. He had the Senate. He got everything he wanted. He had a fawning media.
The fact is: he wants high priced energy. There are plenty of quotes from him to that effect. He got what he wanted. He's a huge success. $5 gas.
To go back now and say prices may have been higher at some point under Bush just shows you're fucked in the head. The economy was never this bad under Bush........................
While I agree that the economy is an important aspect of judging a presidency, in fact it is probably the most important, it isn't the ONLY aspect. Otherwise you could say Hitler was one of the greatest leaders of all time(I can hear Scal coming into this thread now).
I'm not saying Obama is a good President. But to say he is the worse is incorrect. The guy before him was way worse. I think we would be in the same shape if not worse had Bush been able to serve a third term. Hell we would be in the same shape had McCain won the election.
Wanna know a way to help the deficit speed up? Invade a country for no real purpose what so ever AND cut taxes for the country's wealthy.
And how bad was that Iraq game plan? America invaded an oil rich nation and our gas prices STILL continually climbed up.
I'm actually with Hutch, I don't think it matters who is in the White House, whether it's a Dem or a Repub. We're all pretty much fucked.
But to put this ONLY on Obama and to call him the WORST President in history just seems false to me....unless he manages to invade another country for no real purpose what so ever in the next year.
