    I gave up a long time ago trying to use logic with you however most with the ability to read, comprehend, and think understand logic, common sense, and facts.

    I didn't support TARP but the Great Depression was caused by the failure of the banks and TARP bailed out the banks preventing failure or so we were told.
    What he said should be obvious. You have no excuse.

    perhaps you are mispresenting as you point to a later post, long after the one I responded to. That too should have been obvious.


    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    All I can say is you're not addressing what I said.

Either way it was a Bush program not an Obama program. I would have let them fail but regardless those were loans and most of them have been repaid. Using the Savings and Loan crisis was no where near the magnitude of the TARP bailouts.
    You are correct, the S&L crisis wasn't close to this one, but they both revolve around deregulation, so that's the similarity. Republicans/conservatives hate regulations.

    It seems unambiguous to me, you agree with the economists claim, but not the stimulus.

You continue to buy the rhetoric and ignore the substance.

    Guess liberals believe in the nanny state and that people aren't responsible for the choices they made. Remember lenders held a gun to the head of individuals forcing them to sign for loans on houses they couldn't afford. Yes, we need the nanny state. Wonder how our Founders ever survived without that Federal Govt. to take care of them like we have today. Retirement income, retirement healthcare, unemployment insurance, universal healthcare and all thanks to the Central Govt.

    Stick with your liberal buddy, but irrelevant, it wasn't the Obama stimulus that did it but it is the Obama record that you are ignoring.

    TARP was nothing but an excercise of covering your ass. One can not pick and choose which rhetoric one buys is wrong and which is not.
