    Why do Republicans insist that the so-called "free market" requires government intervention to fail?

    Wait a second. On the one hand, you lash out at "liberals" for blaming a predecessor too long, but then you go on to blame the preceding government balance, ie: two years of Democratic control. Now remember, when it is noted that the economy collapsed before Obama became president, the conservative reply is always that "Democrats had taken control of congress in 2007." So not only do conservatives try to blame Democrats by mere existence (unable to say WHAT they did in less than a year to CAUSE a near second Depression), but when it is also noted that the DOW hit a record 14,000 in 2007, credit is NOT given to the new majority. (Btw, the DOW hit 14,000 the other day, same day it was reported that the economy shrank by .1%, so your trickle-down economics are alive and well, so why complain?). Seems to me you're caught up in a "blame game" yourself rather than considering the POLICIES that cause negative or positive effects.
