Just to play devil's advocate. What makes Bush much more worse than Obama? I'll give you Iraq as a freebie. :)

What response specifically are you meaning to the 9/11 attacks? I'm not defending Bush by any means, but let's be honest, a few of those can't be laid directly at his feet. Congress also had a major hand in it, and a lot of people tanked the economy on their own. For example, people making say $40k buying $500k houses, then trying to flip houses when they had no idea what they were doing. Sure, banks should have said no, and never loaned to these morons, but a little personal responsibility goes a long way.

Not only did I live through these years, I joined the Marines right after 9/11 and served in Afghanistan. So obviously, I have a unique perspective, but do enjoy a spirited debate. :)

The Patriot Act. Handed so much power to the federal government, that when crooked scumbags got a hold of it, it became an Orwellian nightmare.

Patriot Act wasn't all Bush. Let's not forget Congress had to vote on it. To which, Hillary voted for it, as well as many prominent people in Congress and those running for President. I'm not defending the bill, I'm just saying it can't be all laid at his feet.
