The planning and the timeline of events couldn't possibly be a coincidence.
Shortly after Pelosi & Reid get the keys, the economy takes a dive.

Around 2003 the GOP passed a bankruptcy reform bill. During the 2006 elections both Pelosi and Reid decried that legislation and vowed to repeal. During the 2006-2010 Democrat control of the congress a repeal package was never even introduced. It would have been so helpful during the 2008 meltdown.

In 2001 Bush warned Congress of future financial and housing crisis
During her weekly press conference on April 15, a reporter asked Pelosi a seemingly innocuous question about taxes. Pelosi prefaced her response with a fairly standard litany: explaining the dire state of the U.S. economy inherited by President Obama and setting the blame at the foot of the Bush administration. But she also added this: “When [then-Senator Obama] accepted the nomination in Colorado, the [Bush] Administration had kept from the public the idea that, in a matter of weeks, the financial community would be in crisis, and we would need to pass the TARP legislation.”
The state-run media is trying to make something of this latest Pelosi fabrication today.
But, what Speaker Pelosi failed to mention was that President Bush warned the Democratic Congress 17 times in 2008 alone about the systemic consequences of financial turmoil at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and also put forward thoughtful plans to reduce the risk that either Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac would encounter such difficulties.
Unfortunately, these warnings went unheeded, as the President’s repeated attempts to reform the supervision of these entities were thwarted by the legislative maneuvering of those who emphatically denied there were problems.

I have been posting on this subject for a while, with all of the Bush bashing and Lib trying to rewrite History. Even GW said " History will judge my Presidency". When alternate view folks dig for dirt even they stumble on the truth on what Polse and Reid, Waters, Dodd, Frank mislead the President and the People of this country.

Good Post, I knew more Poster would evidently pick up my post. Very Good!

On a related note, I wake up in the morning and the sun comes up. I clearly caused the sun to rise. Oh, wait, I'd have to be an idiot to assume that because A happened and then B happened that it doesn't mean that A caused B.
