Are you sure the Bible doesn’t actually say: “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need?”

You must be reading the old Bible, not the one taught in public schools, universities......

What I find amazing about people like this woman is that they can so easily make the claim, “Worst President in History” without so much as a scintilla of evidence that backs up their claims. I challenge anyone to find me a President in our nation’s History that has faced as many natural and man-made disasters as President Bush and still managed to keep the economy going for most of his Presidency while preventing any further terrorist attacks against our nation on our soil.

Very well written response to their insanity - unfortunately, they will not objectively consider your many valid points.

This is what Republicans get for “cooperating” with Democrats.

And I guess we just going to go back to having stuff blow up now and then in the U.S. to avoid any more “quagmires”

That jumped at me too. I live in a Dem area, it's been so since 1932. We have lost jobs and families galore. Pittsburgh's population is one half it's population of 1950. The schools here are horrible. 67% black, cause white families fled the insanity, or use private/parochial schools.

I find it interesting that the schools are 67% black, considering the fact that da Burgh is only about 20% black TOPS (maybe a little less), and that parochial schools are probably closing there like they are everywhere else.

This is not evidence for the Bush Presidency being the worst in History. Can you come up with any possible reasons for why the debt grew outside of blaming one man? Do you really believe that just one man is responsible for all of this? Where does Congress’ responsibilities lie in all this? How does the 9/11/01 attacks and all of the natural and un-natural disasters that occured over the course of the past 8 years play into this? Quit being so simplistic in your accusations (again, an accusation with zero evidence that places blame at the foot of this one man).

George W. Bush’s legacy as the worst president in history presents an opportunity to the next president. If Barack Obama acts timidly and only tweaks the failed Bush policies, he can expect to be caught in the same quicksand that has brought us to this point. If Obama acts boldly, he can create a legacy as a leader who brought the United States out of depression and war, into a time of peace and prosperity. On the heels of “the worst president ever,” Obama can be the best president yet.

ROTFL! Methinks history will judge George W. Bush much more kindly, once we've had to endure the Obamanation for a few years.

I'll say this: No civilians were murdered on his watch. 7+ years of protection is the record. I don't think it is in much danger of being broken with Zero at the suicide switch. You asked for a "scintilla of evidence". That's all I've got. If GWB uses TARP funds to finance the UAW through an "auto bailout", I'll have 2 scintillas. He's not Hitler. He's not evil. He's just not great, probably not even good, possibly not even mediocre. You asked for a scintilla, you got the only one I have.

It is a terrible shame that so many conservatives have jumped on the hate Bush bandwagon.

I don't think conservatives have joined the 'hate Bush' syndrome, but it's hard to be enthusiastic about a presidency that ended with a crashing economy.

The crash, of course, was directly caused by Democrat policies (community reinvestment baloney, refusal to allow energy production on US soil) which is hard to prove when talking to a liberal.

The biggest disappointment of President Bush, and I'll support him till the day he leaves office, is his naive belief that caving to Democrat demands would get him any credit ..... of that it would do America any good at all.

Bush's downfall was caused by his confusing "compassion" with compromise.

Compromising with those who would destroy our great prosperous capital driven nation is NOT compassionate.... it is naive in the extreme.

once we've had to endure the Obamanation for a few years.

Unfortunately, the economy will more likely improve (by late 2009) than get worse ..... due in large part because oil/gasoline is at $1.49 a gallon --- which is the same thing as a HUGE tax cut for EVERYONE!!

Of course Obama policies would have kept gasoline at $7 a gallon, but the media and Democrats (same thing) will never allow that narrative to see the light of day.

People don't realize the effect energy prices have on the entire economy. I've said many times before that it was panic over possible $8/gallon fuel (in mid-2008) which scared many companies into slamming the brakes on growth and job creation.

In fact, methinks this entire energy spike was a contrived plot to destroy the Bush-Republican economy just in time for the 2008 election.

Combined with falling real estate, and overleveredged banks, etc ..... it was a deadly combination for the Bush Administration.

There was not one original word in this talking points memo.

Everything this person wrote was on the same level as a school kid's term paper written to kiss up to his or her liberal teacher.

And the ironic reality is that as soon as Obama and the democrats succeed in legitimizing those 10 million new Hispanic voters they can toss any hope of their beloved gay marriage out the window - since it will become a political impossibility. An interesting type of poetic justice to say the least.

I just did a little checking on Catoosa County and Catoosa County Schools. Something jogged my memory. I looked at this area some years ago. This is "Deliverance" country. The Black citizens slipped away to ring church bells? Not likely. They probably needed to get out before the lynchings started. Catoosa is 96% White and 2.6% Black. In Georgia. Really.

Catoosa County is also ignorant. The schools are mostly slightly above average. Georgia average. Schools in Marietta are rated higher and they carry a solid percentage of minority pupils. Catoosa schools are almost all White and that is usually worth 20 points. These are some dumb crackers.

High School graduation rates are below average, again Georgia average. They don't have the burden of inner-city dropout rates. Bachelor's degrees are scarce, 13.8% against a Georgia average of 24.3 and a national average of 29%.

If she wants to see stupid she can just look around. Or perhaps in the mirror.

If Bush is so stupid how did he become President? If Babbs Taylor is so smart why didn't she offer solutions instead of name calling. This is so typical of the Dem.s rude and crass but no answers.

I asked for a scintilla of evidence that George W. Bush is “THE” worst President in this nation’s History. You’ve given a scintilla of evidence that during his Presidency the amount of spending by Congress grew enormously. Where’s your smoke? There’s certainly no fire.

I would not want to be in the Obamasiah’s shoes - He’s going to have to pull of Jesus like miracles just to satisfy the expectations of those who voted for him. If he does not deliver on everything he’s promised the brainless masses that voted for him, his will be the most failed Presidency in this nation’s History.

Now, giddy Obama supporters edged past each other in the crowded banquet hall, sharing smiles and ogling the vast array of T-shirts and buttons.

Giddy, eh? The crash is going to be ugly.
