    Re: Clinton says he could have prevented economic collapse

    They're all factors, but the deregulation of 1999 didn't have to do with mortgages, etc..

    In any case, Clinton would not have done away with any of it. In fact, he was asked very recently if his 1999 deregulation was to blame, and he said it wasn't, and in fact it had helped . . . so it's a safe bet it wouldn't have been changed.

    On the contrary... Clinton was recently on Larry King Live. He said something to the effect that it appears now that some decisions he made during his Presidency may have contributed to the economic crisis. He was very apologetic about it.

    Rip him apart if that is what makes you feel good. At least he's man enough to admit he made mistakes.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    It's not what he says here.

    Bill Clinton on the Banking Crisis, McCain, and Hillary

    You got a transcript of that Larry King interview?

    And, of course, the OP ran from his own topic.

    Re: Clinton says he could have prevented economic collapse

    Folks, it takes 2 to tango, in this case, Republicans and Democrats.

    In 1999, Phil Gramm (Republican) introduced the Gramm-Bliley Act, which passed Congress, and was signed into law by Bill Clinton (Democrat). The Gramm Act was instrumental in removing the protections of the Glass-Steagal Act, passed in 1933, which was the prevention for what happened to our economy in the 21st Century.

    [rant]
    You know, I get kind of miffed when I see Republicans blaming Democrats and Democrats blaming Republicans instead of blaming their own party, whichever one it was that danced with the other. How about you hyper-partisans putting America first, for a change? Until you do, you guys at both extremes are just part of the problem. Try being part of the solution instead. Finger pointing is not only too easy, it is wrong.

    Re: Clinton says he could have prevented economic collapse

    Just thought of something else. In the interview, Clinton called the Republicans hypocrites. I have one important question to ask:

    If the Democrats are correct (just for the sake of argument) in asserting that Republicans have spent us into a hole, then isn't it important that Democrats right that wrong by..............

    Not doing the same damn thing the Republicans did?


    Who's the hypocrites now??

    Re: Clinton says he could have prevented economic collapse

    I agree. Just as only Nixon could have gone to China,
    only Clinton could have passed welfare reform (he did),
    and only Clinton could have opposed selling impossible
    mortgages to menial laborors.
    Take the red pill.
