    4. I know you are refering to Libya but Bush first went into Pakistan using drones (and no Iam not defending Obama's use of drones, but the point of this blog is not the facts)
    5. It was the administration not him specifically, and I support that ban after the BP oil spill
    7. The money was supposed to go to projects that were ready to be created, but they did not exist
    9. 12 states currently have state wide DREAM Acts, it was not signed in at the federal level, Obama merely stated he was adopting some of the measures.
    11. You mean he made BP pay for ruining the Gulf and the lives of people who rely on it for their income
    12. A company that failed and was filing for bankrupcy
    13. Nasa is still going strong
    14. http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2013/05/01/presidential-proclamation-national-day-prayer-2013 We arent a Christian nation, as a seminary student I do not feel comfortable having leaders be in charge of faith
    15. The Patriot Act extension had a lot more wrong than being signed with an autopen, but he wasnt the first to sign it so I guess thats why you left that part out.
    16. It was the defense of marriage act, the state has no right to tell people they cannot marry another adult consenting person
    19. He blocked voting laws, you leave much information out of these
    22. It is not bankrupt
    20 and 21 are the same, as are 23 and 24
    25. Czars oversee specific policies, Bush appointed 49 (no moral stance on either one just stating facts)
    26. Thats assuming that there is something wrong with communists, McCarthy is gone no need to keep his witch hunt alive
    27. Everyone needs a hobby and some time to think or even talk casually with political allies and opponents
    29. True but what did Kissinger do to earn his?
    30. the US has been part of many injustices and it means a lot to have an apology made at a state level, the us should admit its wrongs more often
    31. Bush spent 32% of his time in office on vacation for 977 days. For Obama I only know his first term which totaled 78 days.
    32. http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/firstlady.asp
    33. Only dog walker on staff passed away in 2011, there is another aid who among other things walks the dog
    35. Nothing evil about the Quran or about saying a call to worship is beautiful
    36. http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/veteranshealth.asp
    37. It didnt happen so...
    38. He stated that a national policy needed to be established concerning illegal immigration, against Arizonas extreme measures. He acted as a president smoothing out relations with a neighboring country concerning their citizens.
    39. Benghazi isnt a real scandal, yes people died but similar things happened under the Bush admin without the public uproar.
    40. the founding fathers were terrorists.
    You never cite a source for any of these.
