    He failed to push for the reforms the Democrats were blocking that could have blunted the edge of the looming disaster.

    Other than that, Bush vs the Socialist Banking Disaster looks almost exactly like King Canute ordering the tide to go away.

    Things got worse over time.

    Carter's CRA.

    Clinton's CRA II.

    The empowerment of a racist organization to sue banks claiming racism if the bank didn't lend money to people who couldn't pay it back.

    Clinton signing the Republican sponsored bill that removed the block on residential lending banks from playing with the big boys in the commercial banking side.

    Barney Frank getting hot over a (male) teller's ass and blocking reform legislation under Bush.

    Most of the blame is on the Democrats for flat out disobeying the Constitution, some, not much adheres to the Republican RINO squads.

    Well he must have done it, in order to cause the collapse correct


    If all he did was block something, it means the reason for the collapse was enacted before him

    And if you do, I bet I can find something more than just "it's Bill O'reilly, so I am going to ignore it". I don't wuss out on backing up my claims.

    Too late, you just did. I'm sure it comes as no surpris to most here. You fooled quit a few people for along time on this forum. But, the cat's out of the bag, now, so it's all good.

    Paul Krugman!... That's brilliant!
