This iReport is part of an assignment:
Bush Bad, Obama Good - Really?
Seems that the accepted mantra over the last few years and continuing into this new year of 2013 is that anything "tainted" by enactment, implementation, carried out by former President George W. Bush is bad. The mirror of this is that anything "blessed" by enactmentment, continuation or carried out by current President Barack Obama is good.
I can only ask, "Really?"
For the sake of argument, let me ask if in fact Bush is too blame for all the evils and woes the nation faces and finds itself in, why has and does Obama reauthorize, continue and carry out so many policies, actions, activities and legislation from his predecessor?
The majority of this legislation, activity, action and policy which our just re-elected President pursues is not required by legal obligation or treaty. Yet, for all the "bad" of Bush, Obama seems to like to keep in play so much of what Bush started or allowed.
I will give you that there is much which occurred during the Bush years that I did not agree with or approve of being done. There is plenty to disagree with the former President. But for all that, it does seem that the President does seem to have a lock on many of those actions, activities, legislation and policy.
From the Cornfield, just a question to ponder, cuss and discuss on this frigid 3rd day of January, 2013.
