Yarmony - it's absolutely true that Bush inherited the recession that resulted from the dotcommie bubble that grew, was "nurtured," and burst on Clinton's watch. And the current recession has roots that go back before Bush's time. As for Palin, she's out there now keeping herself in the news by claiming unfair treatment... vs. acknowledging that she wasn't remotely up to the job. It's not just that I can't get over her, she can't get over her.

If we are not counting senatorial experience as executive experience, many, many presidents had next to no experience. Lincoln and JFK are just two examples. I wasn't meaning to insult family buisinesses. The reality with Bush is that he didn't actually contribute to the construction of the buisiness, and was essentially given a free ride by his family. Obama got to where he is based upon his intellect and talent. Those are two very, very different things.

On a side note, what were we thinking when we elected as president a man who used to be a high school cheerleader but who is also strongly opposed to many gay rights measures. Watching him conduct foreign policy has been like watching a three year old put his hand into the garbage disposal.
