Why I miss George W. Bush as one leader of the free world
George W. Bush not only tried very hard to asset the population of the United States by helping their financial growth but he also tried to help Arabs in other countries by giving them freedom of choice in democratic voting and the opportunity to advance as the western world has for many years.
U.S. President George W. Bush signed a 168-billion-U.S.-dollar economic rescue package on Wednesday, February 15, 2008 to fend off a possible economic recession. "I know a lot of Americans are concerned about our economic future. Our overall economy has grown for six straight years -- but that growth has clearly slowed," Bush said at a White House signing ceremony.
Bush was enthusiastic and boasted about the cooperation between the White House and Congress, saying, "We have come together on a single mission, and that is to put the people's interest first." He was very glad that the both of the strong government offices worked closely to accomplish the same goals.
The stimulus plan was achieved after Bush held talks with leaders of Congress last month about "whether or not we could come together to provide a booster shot for our economy -- a package that is robust, temporary, and puts money back into the hands of American workers and businesses," he said.
Now, in 2010 President Barack Obama is earning very low approval ratings over his handling of the economic problems that Americans face and the lack of concern for Americans is noticeable.
After Bush left office President Barack Obama quickly tried to gain political achievement and respect for his continuance of Bush’s economic boosts. Unfortunately, most people have complained that they never did receive them. Then, Obama put a permanent freeze on the paychecks of the disabled in America by stopping Social Security and Veteran’s pension increases despite the heavy inflation during this recession.
By preventing cost of living increases for federal employees and the disabled population, Obama felt that he was doing the country a favor and this has attributed to his low approval ratings. There are many other reasons that President Barack Obama has disappointed voters and the campaign promises which have never been brought into fruition have caused a general lack of respect for Obama throughout American culture.
Bush supported religious freedom but still maintained the American culture that Obama has inflicted cold and uncaring attitudes toward. Bush never initiated ethnic cleansing as Obama seems to continue to support in the U.S.
Obama is supporting religious freedom of the foreign citizens living in America yet he denounces American ethnicity and wants to cram Muslim Mosques down our throats whether it has been accepted fully or not. As a politician he does wind down with saying “I am not so sure it’s a good idea.”
Bush would never make a decision or statement and not follow through and stand fast with his beliefs because he cares about public opinion and when he made his decisions he stood by them until the end, and he did not waffle despite what the media may have said about him over the course of his presidency.
Obama tries to please everyone and in doing so, he actually causes people to turn away from him because he says one thing and does another.
President Barack Obama earned his lowest marks ever on his handling of the economy in a new Associated Press-GfK poll, which also found that an overwhelming majority of Americans now describe the nation's financial outlook as poor. A frustrated electorate could take it out on the party in power — Obama's Democrats — in the November elections. Eleven weeks before the Nov. 2 balloting, just 41 percent of those surveyed approve of the president's performance on the economy, down from 44 percent in April, while 56 percent disapprove. And 61 percent say the economy has gotten worse or stayed the same on Obama's watch.
More than half of Americans now disapprove of President Barack Obama’s job performance, new polling found, as the ground zero mosque controversy appeared to further erode ratings that the nation’s stagnant economy already had damaged. Gallup’s tracking poll for Saturday through Monday found Obama’s disapproval rating at 51 percent, a new high, the organization said Tuesday. For the third day in a row, the president’s approval rating was 42 percent, a new low for Obama. This latest three-day tracking began the day after Obama delivered a speech in which he said that a group of Muslims had the right to build a house of worship anywhere local laws allowed, and that the nation’s commitment to religious freedom must remain “unshakable.”
