    This, my friends, is what you call appeasement.

    I am prevented by the rules to respond as would prefer to this distortion of the facts and point everyone in the direction of them, rather relying on the Party line defense of the Dims (no spell error) to explain away the truth.
    The Liberals like to claim the high ground from which they can make claims they can't back with facts and will not stand up yo the light of day.
    he factors leading to our current economic problems are in fact in part a result of errors on the part of the Bush administration but pointing fingers now do nothing to help NOW.
    Obama is doing everything wrong and that is clear as is shown in the 10.2% unemployment rate he said would not go above 8% if we spend 787 billion. We it' has make no positive impact and every example Obama claims is shot down as another lie to the point even the Lame Stream Obamedia is catching on.
    Read and learn.

    Dems push expanded Community Reinvestment Act; deny Act's role in mortgage meltdown; GOP cites ACORN connection | Washington Examiner
    Republican critics point out that the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now has used the CRA to pressure banks to pour money into ACORN and its affiliates, allowing ACORN to facilitate loans to clearly unqualified borrowers. Now, with ACORN under fire after a series of undercover videos showing ACORN workers in Baltimore, Washington DC, New York, and California openly encouraging prostitution, tax evasion, and other crimes, Republicans on the committee are citing the CRA-ACORN connection as yet another reason the Act should not be expanded
    Clearly the banks were under pressure from ACORN and anyone with half a brain now knows ACORN is a corrupt organization that will do or say anything to make money. In this case to get their cut from the loans they forced banks into.

    If you take the time to look into it you will find that the idea of the Community-Reinvestment-Act was a good one on the surface with lofty goals it has been abused over the years and has infact contributed too the Economic problems we see today.

    What's more crooks like Barney Franks want to expand an already proven failed system. You cannot count on a group of corrupt Dims to provide proper oversight when many of their own numbers are involved in questionable financial dealings. I suspect many Republicans are in the same boat, but as yet have not been found out.

    Nope. It's a third way that transcends the liberal conservative dichotomy.

    Unrestricted individualism spells ruin to the individual himself.

    George W. Bush was the biggest threat to freedom and economic growth that this country has faced since 1941.

    That's some sort of ideologically distorted worldview. "It's ALL Bush's fault!" "He was the biggest threat to freedom"... Oh, brother...

    There is something ironic....yet sadly unfunny about GWB talking about economic growth.
