No you're very wrong.
Housing under Bush shot up only 1 percent, and a fraction of that was Sub-Prime.
The vast majority of worthless loans were made under Clinton as Housing shot up from 63 percent in 1993 to 68 percent in 2000.
Tax cuts were extended out to everyonex not just " the rich" amd are you seriously STILL blaming Bush 6 years into a Progressives Presidents term ?
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
I don't understand how someone could put Bush and Carter in the same boat.
As to the question, I think that Bush was a simpleton and the neocons (Cheney's gang) played him like a fiddle. Kind of sad that Bush got taken advantage of like that, but he chose his fate.
