How would an Obama presidency differ from Bush's presidency?

Reply Thu 5 Jun, 2008 05:06 pm
Let's get this right on the table (this theme has been kicking around in a few threads)-- but let's attack this straight on. Several A2Kers have been claiming that Obama (called "OBusha" by some) will be little more than a third Bush term-- others have disputed this account.

So.. is this charge valid? Of course different people will lead to some difference... but as far as policy and positions, how much difference is there?

Here is my list of topics that I think are important and interesting in this matter (of course, you can add topics).

- Taxes and Spending
- Labor Issues
- The war in Iraq
- National Security, civil rights and torture
- Immigration
- Education
- Abortion
- FISA and amnesty for telephone companies
- Same-sex Marriage

So are there significant differences in policy or position between Bush and Obama? If so, what are they?

I wouldn't think there would be a great deal of difference. After all they both are running on the platform of changing washington. Look what a great job Bush did. I think the next presidency is going to be very interesting. After another 4 years of change maybe the people of the U.S. will finally realize that the politicians aren't going to help them and will take control of our government. But I doubt it. Our whole system is geared to doing as are told too and to believe what our business controlled media tell us to believe.

Could most of his speeches become just a hollow acknowledgements if he makes it to the presidency? I'm talking about Obama, of course.

Bush talks a good empty game when it comes to "empathizing" with the "less well-off."

This sums it up fairly well.
