    Why do you post crap like this? Who was in charge of both Houses of Congress and the While House in 2004?

    Fair enough and I've acknowledged that in the past. For 11 months in 2007 leading up to the Great Recession, Democrats did nothing about the housing bubble. So how come Conservsative won't apply that same blame to Republicans who did nothing in 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006? Not to mention, by 2007, the damage was done. The housing bubble had already peaked in 2005-2006 and was on its decline towards busting.

    Whose job was it to do something about it in 2007 which is what was asked to provide? At least Sheik was honest enough to acknowledge it.

    Unfortunately the saved jobs were for public sector union jobs. And yes the stimulus went to make their health care accounts whole and to prevent needed layoffs in the public sector. It is a damned shame that taxpayers had to pay for those jobs.

    I think every member of Congress who was around then and still around should be fired. They failed in epic proportions. Be it a (D) or a (R). It wll be one of the leading major chapters in Bush's legacy.

    O.K. there were a small handful trying to get something done. I hate to condemn the innocent with the guilty but their numbers are few.

    What would that have done to possibly prevent the housing and credit meltdowns?

    I respectfully disagree. It is very clear that an insurgency can wear down a military and a nation. Can you not imagine that a great many in the armed forces would choose to leave the military rather than to fight US citizens?

    Therefore the people always have the final say. Always.

    Perhaps only one of you is. The money came from somewhere. Over two trillion was taken from the productive to give to the unions. The rest was borrowed or printed. So it is a chimera.

    Our problems today are far bigger than that. Now what you were asking was what didn't they do that could have helped with the recession today. THe huge deficits, the unfunded liabilities, etc are all weighing heavily on the economy and causing a major drag. It's not just housing/banking.
