Bush or Obama, which was worse?
Not even close. If Obama could have run a third term he would have been elected again. Bush was a disaster. He had a chance to bring the country together after 911 and then attacked the wrong country based on bad intelligence. Iraq was a debacle which created Al Qaeda and then ISIS. Add the financial meltdown and Bush goes down as the worst President ever.
Obama cleaned up the mess and brought our country back from the worst recession since the Great Depression, and did it in the face of obstruction from racists on the right.
And... it has worked to a degree, it doesn't take but a few percentage points these days to tip an election, every little bit counts, everything that can be done will be done.
You could see it before the election: "Donald Trump is a shitgibbon it is true, but I just can't bring myself to vote for Hillary, what with her e-mails..."
They don't have to convince everyone, just a few percent here, and a few percent there... it all adds up.
