    In itself that Barack Obama is worse than George W. Bush. He could be -- and I believe that he is -- in many ways a better president than Bush. At the same time, his actions could still be part of a larger set of factors that is, well, ruining the economic lives of regular working families.

      ...of the same factors.

      Rmoney was also worse than Bush.

      than GWB; I see them pretty much the same, and I say that with profound sadness.  It's as if it really doesn't matter any more who gets elected (and yes, that includes McCain and Romney) the 99% of this country are getting thrown under the bus.

        circumstantial with a substantial element of choice on the White House's part.

          I think Obama is to blame too...but we must also admit that Shrub left him with a whole mess o'beans to try to extricate from.

          IOW, Shrubbie created the economic implosion Obama tried to dig out of.

          Now, chained CPI?  Obama is totally to blame.

          But the economic implosion was definitely Shrubbie's fault.

          When I voted for O., I hoped...but he is just another Republican.  Pity.  Nice wife & kids.  Lousy policies.
