    That's a SMACKDOWN !!!
    Since your interest is in assigning blame for the repeal. Does this mean that you for its re-establishment? Or, are you just playing some game of political one-upmanship?

    Another trying to establish blame for the repeal. Does that mean you are for re-establishing the Glass-Steagall Act?

    No, but your fallacies and distortions need to be corrected.

    As to what I advocate, it would be for not only reinstating the provisions of GS, but going so far as not allowing retail banks to become interstate entities...

    This is a major comprehension problem. I am rebutting the blame assigned to the GOP, pointing out that it was both bipartisan, and that frankly, it had little to do with creating the crisis, or causing the inevitable bubble to burst. The repeal of Glass Steagel is a liberal red-herring.

    The " Great Bush Recession " is the new narrative to convince the low information voter that 4 years into the Obama Malaise that it's some how someone elses fault.

    But its being countered with the truth. That Obama's miserable performance is a continuation of a sub prime bubble collapse that was mandated by the Democrats.

    I mean its one thing to offer up excuses as the commander in chief 4 years into your administrations failure.

    Obama's changed the expression of "the buck stops here" to " the buck stops where I can convince the uneducated voter it stops ".

    I get you guys need excuses,but an excuse thats a lie ?

    Cmon...

    And yet unemployment was lower on every day of the GWB administration than it has been on any day of the BHO administration.

    First, go back and find anywhere in this thread where I attacked anyone...THEN you can accuse me of what I'm doing...

    That's what an Identity Philosopher is. He puts loyalty to the group ahead of everything which is exactly what McCain did. It's captured on videa from an interview on Fox Noise. That makes him a putz in my view. Party over country. My comment on the Republican caucus is not a personal attack on any poster including you. It's an apt description of the Republican mentality of group over country.
    Now, please explain how calling McCain a putz is not a personal attack...then explain how you are not guilty of what you falsely accused me of...

    junior indeed...

    What difference would it make? Per you sides economic 'idol':
    It’s true that Glass-Steagall, a Great Depression–era law that forbade the mixing of securities trading and accepting FDIC-insured deposits under the same corporate roof, wouldn’t have prevented the 2008 implosion of Wall Street. Instead, it was extraordinarily high levels of leverage at investment banks like Lehman and Merrill Lynch, as well as the holding of huge portfolios of toxic subprime mortgages by deposit-taking banks like Bank of America, that were the fuel for the conflagration.
