    Any my whole point that the financial support for suicide bombers isnt doing much: Saddam funds fail to buy Gaza hearts | World news | The Guardian

    These were used by the Bush administration, they aren't their words but other findings by other people.

    On the original link I just provided there were some VP Cheney's words but I didn't use them.
    Saying this is mostly faulty intelligence.

    Giving money to a family who lost their son/daughter/father/mother is not supporting terrorism. But if you consider that terrorism why didnt we invade Iran, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait? Hell after all we supported terrorism... Some say we still do.

    Well, with only a yes/no... He was better than he was bad. Far from the best president, but I think he handled his presidency with honor. The last democrat precedent that honored the presidency with respect was Kennedy.

    They would make fun of him on the comedy shows. after one came up with "strategery" for the skit, Bush turned around and used the word intentionally in a speech.

    Most people didn't see his sense of humor.

    I like the dinner where he made the slide show looking for the nukes.

    When will liberals stop repeating that misinformation?

    The Mission Complete banner was because that ships mission was complete. It was sailing back to it's home port.

    How can you expect to be credible if you can't get simple facts strait?

    The main cause was similar to other property bubbles. People invest because they expect prices to go up. Once prices no longer go up, they will try to sell as fast as possible to avoid losing money. Everyone trying to sell at the same moment will further decrease prices.

    Many people are unable to pay back their loans because their assets are worth too little. Banks will have to pay the rest. Once the bank start to struggle, then you have an financial crisis.



    I think it will have little effect, and is not the way to achieve economic recovery. He needs to focus on jobs instead.

    I am not too worried about a new financial crisis right now. They generally come when people have forgotten about the last one.
    It's a little disturbing that they would be trying to encourage banks to lower their standards again though. Simply stated, everyone cannot afford a home with the prices they are at.
