"Increased debt"

True of every President since Carter. Next?

"We are still in what is a more explosive Middle East."

Before or after we invaded and occupied a few countries? If you are trying to say Bush made this better during his time in office, that would be laughable if it was not so sad.

"Not even a suggestion on how fix any of the entitlement programs"

How was Bush any better in this regard?

"No improvement in unemployment"

True, but I would argue that the freefall in place at the time Bush left has been stopped.

"The unknown costs for the undefined Obamacare"

As opposed to what? The existing health care situation was one of the primary reasons cited by business as a drag on the economy BEFORE teh reform act. How was that better?

"Expansion of the Patriot Act"

One I agree with you about.

"No attempts to balance the budget"

Same with Bush.

and on and on...
