Umm no the banking crisis was due to the liberal mindset that banks should lend money to people that can't afford the loan. it was expanded under Clinton, and when bush attempted and republican in congress attempted to get Freddie and fannie under control chris dodd and barney frank both stopped them from doing it.
other liberals went on their typical rant of how republicans hate poor people nonsense. so chris dodd and barney frank are the largest two people responsible for the recession.
yes we would it beats the mediocrity and stagnation that we have lived with under Obama.
