They told me in 2008 that if I voted for Sen. John McCain we would get the third Bush administration. They were right. I voted for McCain and now we have the third Bush administration under Barack Obama.
Obama continued bailouts, stimulus payments, high deficits and presidential vacations. He convinced Congress to continue all the Bush tax cuts.
Obama is carrying on Bush's efforts to weaken the Social Security system by reducing Social Security taxes in spite of the fact that many have had to delay retirement because the economic collapse damaged their private pension programs. If Obama were a real Democrat, he would want to strengthen Social Security.
The health care program Obama conned the Democratic Congress into approving apparently originated in the administration of the first President Bush. Republican Gov. Mitt Romney enacted a similar program in Massachusetts.
Some Republicans refer to other Republicans as "RINOs" for Republicans In Name Only. It appears that President Barack Obama could be a "DINO" or a Democrat In Name Only.
Maybe it's time for Democrats to ask for that birth certificate.
Anything that could get the Democrats to force Obama to prove he's a citizen would be a step in the right direction.
Deficits, bailouts and Obamacare are the worst programs of the Bushes .
If The One really did become a centrist (yes, I know it will never happen), would that make him DINObama?
He will end up like Carter. 5 buck gas will do him in.
That's a very cheap shot even for leftists.
I feel the need to mention some things. He did not convince Congress to continue all of the Bush tax RATES. He was opposed to them - all. W tried to privatize SS - not weaken it. When did W take an expensive vacation on the taxpayers like o? He went to HIS ranch or to his family place in Maine.
