No we do not need a president like Obama .. George Bush was against abortion, and went out of his way to try to choose decent Supreme Court nominees .. After 911 the country was safer with Bush.. The world may have supposedly hated us (as they still do)... But they also Respected us - and we (our military) Earned it .. Obama chose to use the economy problems for his carte blanche to throw away huge monies .. Bush tryed to warn of the housing problem in the economy .. but it was ignored.. . His (Obama's) government is so much in our faces as to force the People to have taxed (or fined) Health Insurance. The government started by forcing auto insurance, certain drug substances to be made illegal, etc .. .. Now the government (Obama) wants to make health insurance mandatory. And the government wants to tell the food industry what they should serve in restaurants .. The government has gotten Out of Hand! Time will tell if Obama will follow George Bush's defense policy ... Aside from choosing a presidential candidate who will show Proof of U.S. Birth - We should also have a president who have served in the military (in these trying times) .. .. so that he can at least act like he has a clue!
