Well, actually, there was a difference. Bush loved his country, Obama hates his...or at any rate, the one where he lives and of which he happens to be president.
The thing I thought was amusing is that Bambi was actually stealing an idea from Bush (to have retirement accounts for low-income workers) that the Dems condemned at the time as being too cheap and not enough government largesse.
If Bush loved the USA he would have stopped the illegal alien invasion. After 9/11 he could have stopped all immigration. Bush and his party had control of the whole federal government for six years and all they did was expand the power, scope, and cost of government. I don't think they rolled back, let alone ended, a single leftist program.
If Bush loved the USA I can't imagine what he would have done if he hated it.
