Timbo, where to start? I see how wars started under Bush are considered Bush’s fault but after Obama got elected partly to slow things down he actually attacked three more countries than bush did plus continued the Bush wars. After eight years under Obama continuing past policy, that can hardly be described as a Bush fault. No, they were Obama wars. Obama gunrunning weapons to the enemy didn’t help any. https://www.poynter.org/news/fact-checking-war-comparisons-between-obama-and-bush
The New Madrid fault line in Tennessee is about as close to what one could refer to as Bush’s fault.
Corporation breaks are a point to note. Several were bailed out but not all were successful. A half a billion or $535 million to Solyndra in taxpayer money down the tubes after they gave a generous donation to Obama’s campaign. President Obama lied when defending his administration’s approval of a $535 million loan guarantee to Solyndra, a now-defunct solar company. Obama referred to Solyndra’s loan at an Oct. 6 press conference as “a loan guarantee program that predates me.” That’s not accurate. It’s true that the Energy Policy Act of 2005 created a loan guarantee program for clean-energy companies developing “innovative technologies.” But Solyndra’s loan guarantee came under another program created by the president Obama’s 2009 stimulus for companies developing “commercially available technologies.”
The feds lost $11.2 billion in the GMC bailout.
Obama’s regulations cost corporations $488 Billion and the feds spent $93 Billion enforcing their own regs.
Yes, corporations get tax breaks and the maximum was lowered, but the GOP had originally intended to abolish the AMT. But on Friday, with the clock running out — and money running short — Senate Republicans put the AMT back into their bill. Unfortunately for McConnell, they forgot to lower the AMT after doing so.
This is a big problem. The Senate bill brings the normal corporate rate down to 20 percent — while leaving the alternative minimum rate at … 20 percent. The legislation would still allow corporations to claim a wide variety of tax credits and deductions — it just renders all them completely worthless. Companies can either take no deductions, and pay a 20 percent rate — or take lots of deductions … and pay a 20 percent rate.
With this blunder, Senate Republicans have achieved the unthinkable: They’ve written a giant corporate tax cut that many of their corporate donors do not like. As The Wall Street Journal reports:
Then there was Moochelle’s friend who spent half a billion dollars err 400 million creating an Obamacare web site that didn’t work.
$105 million in Obama’s travel costs
I agree the crime rate has decreased consecutively for many years coinciding with record gun sales. However illegal immigrants who comprise only 3.5 percent of our nation’s population, are convicted and sentenced for the crime of murder at a rate of three times that of their American citizen and legal immigrant counterparts.http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/cr...anctuary-cities

The only positive thing Obama ever did was the cash for clunkers because it got so many Obama bumper stickers off the road.
Yes, the wall will pay for itself.
