Bush was ignored....and now you want to blame the Republicans?

These are ALL HARD COLD FACTS
. That is right jt800, And the Democrats, they said, Freddie and Fannie are doing a very good job.


The Bush Admin and Senator McCain warned repeatedly about Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac and what thus became the 2008 financial crisis -- Starting in 2002 (and actually even earlier -- in the Clinton and Carter White Houses. Democrats resisted and kept to their party line, extending loans to people who couldn't afford them.

Hey jambo, we were losing 700,000 jobs a month Jan 2008, if roads bridges and infrastructure is responsible for businesss success, then why were we losing jobs? Clearly the infrastructure didnt disappear, right?

You aren't on Bath Salts are you?

I see you're lamely attempting to pull the race card like a good Moonbat. Guess what? Liberals wore out that one long ago!

Speaking of hypocrites.....I don't see ANYONE touting Obama's wonderful record.

I see NOTHING There that screams "racist" at all.

I see people who disagree with Obama's policies and plan for America wanting to see him get defeated in 2012.

Do you even know what racism really is?

By the way......a huge majority of American polled say they think America is headed in the wrong direction under Obama. So are ALL those Americans "racists"?

To the OP--I wouldn't be proud of threads like this. You might think it's funny, but it makes the republican party look like a bunch of jerks, and that ticks me off. I'm hoping the voters have the sense to kick this crew of R's out of office this fall, and then we can start rebuilding the party to what it once was--common sense conservatives who work for the benefit of mainstreet and communities.
Let's see now. Throw those people out and we end up with a Democrat controlled Congress like we had in 2009 - 2010. How many more obamacare type of laws would that bring on? I guess you may be right but if we keep Obama we are screwed for more years than I want to think about, If this should happen I will be glad that I am very near the end before the Death Panels stack their crap on me to get rid of me.
