I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
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.Originally Posted by Sheik Yerbuti
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
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.
