    Isn't Bush the one who placed industry cronies in charge of the banking regulatory agencies that were not inclined to pursue infractions for misdeeds?

    what shouldn't be expected, and yet happens today, is having a President 3/4th through his first term not be held responsible for much of anything.
    one full term is going to based on nothing more than victimhood.


    sorry Obama, you wanted the job, you took it... now you own it.
    it doesn't matter if you were left a crap economy.... own it or gtfo.
    So it is your opinion that the worst recession since WWII should have been "fixed" sooner??? How would you have accomplished that feat?

    And what has the GOP offered in the last 2-1/2 years to "fix" the recession quicker?

    As long as he deserves it.

    As long as he is responsible for the consequences of his actions, which is, indefinitely.

    If you mean how long it will maintain valid political currency: as long as the consequences of his actions are still exerting influence in socio-economic events.

    that's the problem with the blame game... too few are interested in truth, too many are interested in partisan politics.
    Even if it started under Clinton, that doesn't mean that you let it keep going on if you know it's not the right thing to do. Also we should have kept a closer eye on Wall Street and the loans that they were giving out to people that wanted mortgages.

    Possibly, but the Democrats didn't think that was enough. They had to push it over the ****ing cliff.

    Whatever you can claim that Bush did wrong, and whatever adverse effect you can claim it had on the economy, is nothing compare to what The Democrats have done to it since Obama took office.

    If Bush was negligent or careless, then Obama and his cronies were maliciously, willfully destructive.

    If you believe that anything that Obama has proposed will actually reduce the debt, or for that matter, have any effect other than to drive the economy further into the crapper, well… that only goes to show that there's a Thunder born every minute.

    A completely made up belief. There's no action of Obama's that can't be measured to be economically beneficial. Although, none of them have been beneficial enough to satisfy the American people.

    You clearly misapprehend the scope of the tax cuts, increased military spending, and domestic negligence and how it has trapped successive political leaders in economic and political conundrums that have no viable solutions.

    I don't think Obama is driving our economy further down the crapper I think we are falling down the crapper and Obama is trying to keep our head above water. Is he solving the problem? No, he's simply attempting to try to make sure that things don't get worse.

    If you trust someone once, and he rips you off, do you trust him again?

    If Bernie Madoff offered you a great investment opportunity, would you take him up on it?

    Obama told us before, that he was going to fix our weak economy, and reduce the deficit. Too many Americans were stupid enough to trust him once, and with that trust, he trashed the economy, and drive the deficit up to previously unprecedented levels.

    Amazingly, even after that, there are still plenty of Americans who are still stupid enough to trust him.

    How many times can one con-artist rip you off before you wise up and stop trusting him enough to let him continue doing so?
