Bush was a horrible president. At the time, I thought he was the worst president in American history.
But Obama has made a lot of firsts himself …
For example, Obama:
- Has prosecuted more whistleblowers than all other presidents combined
- Sentenced whistleblowers to 31 times the jail time of all prior u.s. presidents combined
- Prosecuted fewer financial crimes than President Reagan, Clinton or either of the Bush presidents. (As bad as the Bush administration was, they at least prosecuted the heads of Enron, Worldcom and some other white collar crooks. In contrast, Obama hasn’t prosecuted even one high-level Wall Street executive.)
