    Personally, I blame the Pastafarians. The noodly appendages of their heavenly dish reach into every crack and crevice in D.C.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I will like your post for the Life of Brian reference.

    It can't be libertarians fault since no one has ever been dumb enough to actually give them any kind of power.

    The economy isnt just a bi-product of 'today'. Republican in the WH House and Senate all contributed. I support the war against the Taliban and the war to oust Hussein. I support the war and terror and have supported Obamas continued support of Bush policies to combat terrorism. Those dont come free or even cheap. There should have been steps taken back in 2002 to help pay for those wars. Both parties are on the hook for the housing crisis. Industry has been driven out of this country for decades. No one goes unscathed.

    No, it appears you don't actually have it. Clinton, Bush, and Republicans pushed hard for increasing homeownership for those who could least afford them; I blame them for that. After interest rates were dropped to historic lows which opened the floodgates to toxic loans, it was the responsibility of the federal government to enforce oversight to protect the consumers from predatory lending. They failed to do that. For that, I blame Republicans who were in charge inb 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006. I blame Democrats for failing to do so in 2007 but by then, even oversight wouldn't have prevented the meltdown. The only ones pinning blame for all of that on Democrats is the irrational hyperventilating right.

    It really is a shame that we have the choices we have today but with the 24/7 media and close scrutiny of that media I don't understand why anyone would run for office. Why put your family through that?

    We have a two party system in this country and until that changes we are left with choosing the party closest to your ideology. For me,who grew up a Democrat, that is the Republican Party because I always have been a Conservative.

    I didn't vote for Obama nor will I vote for him in 2012 as after spending 35 years in the business world and seeing all kinds of resumes his didn't warrant the job he got. Obama has zero executive and leadership skils and his legislative record was poor at best yet the hope and change message fooled a lot of people. NY 9 seems to have figured it out as did the electorate in Nov. 2010.

    The problem is however is he is building a dependent class that is going to go crazy if anyone takes over and puts fiscal responsibility back into the govt. Too many people today aren't paying any FIT and it isn't likely they are going to support anyone who tries to remedy that situation.

    I don't think either party has the guts to do what is right but will continue to vote for the better of the two candidates and that seems to be the Republicans today. whether or not it will make a difference, I can only hope

    What executive experience did Lincoln, Kennedy or Truman have have? And then you have examples like Bush, who had plenty of executive experience and still ran the country into the ground.

    Post 880 aside you mean...right?

    The housing crisis extends well into the 90s. That you and people like you conveniently ignore Dems like Barney Frank and their role and also the PEOPLE that foolishly put themselves into those situations and instead CONTINUE to fixate on a group of republicans...yeah...you. Put your hat back on and get comfy in it.

    The Greens scared the hell out of the dems and and got their attention. The Libertarians and now the Tea Party has shook up the GOP. If enough people stopped complaining about what the government ISNT doing for them and instead insisted on responsible government we would HAVE better choices.

    I would love for someone to explain predatory lending to me. Only in the liberal world is there no such thing as personal responsibility. I don't recall anyone holding a gun to someone else's head forcing them to sign on to those mortgages. correct me where I am wrong? I do recall Barney Frank however claiming that there was nothing wrong with Fannie and Freddie.
