    Yeah...Bush did that...no insane oil speculation, the housing bubble burst that was 30 years in the making (and largely facilitated by Clinton-era legislation), or the failure of the auto industry and major banking giants.

    Yeah...TOTALLY all Bush.

    Moderator's Warning:
    State of the Union AddressWhile some may think State of the Union addresses are nothing more than Campaign Speeches in the modern era, factually they are not. This thread doesn't belong in the Presidentail Election forum. Moved to *Breaking News* and full transcript added to original post

    Good Lord, NO!

    I've seen him distort and lie before. Why should I put myself thought that again?

    I watched some re-runs of The Big Bang Theory. Then I watched a great speech by Mr. Daniels.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    OK, fine, but will you also include the full transcript of the rebuttal by Mr. Daniels'?

    It amazes me that people are so partisan that they won't even watch the SOTU speech. As much as I disagreed with Bush, I never missed one of his SOTU addresses.

    No, not all by himself. He plenty of help.

    "Thanks to our policies, home ownership in America is at an all-time high." ~ George Bush, 9.2.2004, RNC acceptance speech

    To whom do you think Bush was crediting success of all-time high home ownership when he said "our" in that self congradulatory statement?

    Home ownership is a good thing. Being able to afford and pay for that home is even a better thing.

    Once the government got involved in the home loan business it was bound to be screwed up......and it most assuredly was.

    Once again the government was the problem, not the solution.

    It was private lenders, private credit ratings firms, and private derivatives traders who caused this blow up -- not the government. It could have been prevented with effective government regulation, but regs were either not enforced, repealed, or blocked by members of both parties.
