    Not sure what you're getting at but I pay my share of taxes.
    I know that results don't matter to you but here are the numbers

    5 trillion, debt added since the democrats took control of Congress in January 2007-January 2011
    4 trillion, debt Obama has added in 2 plus years in office
    800 billion, the Obama stimulus plan passed and signed in February 2009

    Get it yet?

    Pssst ... He boasted about his homeownership plan (the one you cited as causing the financial crisis) before you voted for him again.

    Results, not rhetoric ... right?

    Re: Obama announces his Candidacy for 2012.

    =Objective Voice;1059390560]It's not a "claim" that TARP was initiated by GW Bush. It is fact!!! You can say it. "GW Bush started TARP". Go on...I won't condemn you for it.
    Reading comprehension problem? I didn't say TARP wasn't created by Bush, Economists claimed that TARP kept us out of Depression. Yes, Bush created and signed TARP, October 2008, 700 billion of which Bush spent 350 billion and left 350 billion for Obama

    And yes, Pres. Obama followed through on what Bush initiated. He had no choice!
    How did Obama vote on the legislation? He had a choice to spend the 350 billion left him by Bush

    Bush purposely left TARP to be restructured once the next president assumed office. Bernanke (sp), w/Pres. Obama's oversight, made some modifications to TARP which allowed the Treasury, and by default the American taxpayers, to get back more of their investment in TARP than what was originally structured when Bush first initiated the program. In fact, just last week a few more banks made payments on their TARP loans.
    Where did the repayment of TARP go? Most of TARP has been paid back, where is the credit to the Treasury?

    Again, campaign contributions isn't a partial issue of this thread topic. You're trying to make is such, but nope...not falling for it. Bring the thread topic back around...
    I am simply pointing out that Wall Street supported Obama more than McCain as the Campaign Finance Commission will show and that is contrary to the view here by many who claim that Wall Street supports only Republicans.

    I am really worried about your reading comprehension. You are proving to be a typical Obama supporter

    You sure have a lot of time invested in Bush hatred, suggest you seek help. Worthy goal, one that started by Jimmy Carter and supported by all Presidents. Nothing wrong with the goal, what was wrong with the Senate Oversight that didn't exist. Nothing in that goal about people getting homes they couldnt afford

    LOL!

    that's what obama said

    BEFORE he tried to tax ENERGY, both production and consumption, in the midst of our malaise

    BEFORE he pumped 2.7 tril into mortgage backed junk---UNDIVERSIFIED

    BEFORE he "rescued" gm which leaves the us taxpayer on the hook for tens of B's

    BEFORE he EXEMPTED fannie and fred from his reg reform, his #2 domestic prioirity which, like his first, he can no longer talk about

    BEFORE he WASTED the better part of another tril on the obscene s-word he can no longer pronounce

    remember when he told nymag in october that he's only just learned THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS A SHOVEL READY JOB?

    BEFORE he CRAMMED a radical redrawing of 1/6 of our economy via RECONCILIATION only days after he was prepared to DEEM the damn thing

    how bout the time he told the sf chron that he'd work to BANKRUPT coal and electricity?

    it's really not that extreme
