    Did you know that Kublai Khan ruled over the greatest sized empire ever? It just so happens that Genghis Khan did most of that work for him though.

    Genghis Khan didn't have a Constitution to uphold.

    ... he said, the point sailing over his head.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    -- Adam Smith

    Who doesn't blame Bush?


    Do you think the policies of Barack Obama and the Democrats or George W. Bush and the Republicans are more responsible for the country's current economic problems?
    • Obama and Democrats: 32%
    • Bush and Republicans: 52%
    • Both equally (vol.): 13%

    It isn't what Bush did in 2007, that's your strawman, it's what he did in 2003 ... passing legislation which opened up the floodgates to homeownership by those who could least afford it ... and by what Republicans didn't do in 2003, 2004, or 2005, which was to pass much needed oversight to prevent wall street from writing them toxic loans.

    Why? Do you hate Bush that much?

    Since we have not yet reached the statute of limitations on FDR, I'd say not for decades to come. Given your age, I'm afraid you'll be hearing about Bush for the remainder of your life.
