That only depends on which version of history you read. Even though he did spend all of that money (which is a microscopic fraction compared to what Obama has spent), it still took a world war to get us out of the Great Depression.

That was also creating new jobs and everybody pitched in to help the war effort, rather than this one which is an attempt to save failing companies. And, unemployment is still rising, unlike the money spent during WWII.

The point I'm trying to make is that you can't just blame the finger at Bush or just blame it at Obama, just giving another citing example how the government has been continuing to f' things up.

Businesses that are doing bad business should be allowed to fail regardless of size as they will be replaced by better businesses. McDonald's, Wal-Mart, UFC, etc. are still growing even during these hard times. Instead of bitching and moaning about needing a bailout, they could simply become innovators like McD's, Wal-Mart, UFC, etc.
i agree with everything you said except that we are now headed towards communism, i think that is just getting blown out of proportion....all i was trying to say is that the blame through this should not go solely to obama...I don't love what he's done, but he inherited a helluva mess and I don't see anyone here hating on bush like this even though he is equally to blame...I know y'all are biased, but face reality a little bit

i agree with you guys on the fact that i think throwing all that money around is questionable...but the point i was trying to make is that we just need to wait and see, a severely damaged economy is not going to fix itself overnight or even in a year...this takes time and we won't know if he was right or not until we see how it plays out

I was mad at Bush for bailing out the Bank's and Obama makes me miss Bush! This is coming from a guy who also sent Bush an Email telling him that he's supposed to work for the American people not Mexico!
