May I remind you that the reason why we are in the financial mess we are in is because of actions CLINTON did (everyone should own a home)? May I also remind you that our economy was doing OK until the Dems took over Congress in 2006.

I get so tired of Obama always spouting off on TV the mess he "inherited"......HE ASKED FOR IT!!!! If he didn't want to "Inherit" the mess, he shouldn't have run.

In Southern California they are STILL building like that? Its still happening here in Texas, but our economy here is not as bad as what California's is.

Biden should know, he's usually wrong about almost everything.

"Stand up, Chuck! Stand up!"

These guys are governing on happy socialist thoughts.

Wait for the idiot-induced crash that's coming when the perfect storm they're creating hits the perfect fan.

I guess you just don't have enough empathy.

Well, you're OFF the SCOTUS short list!

I've noticed an inability of conservatives, in general, to discuss economic issues in anything but emotionally driven attacks of placing blame anywhere but on the previous Bush Administration, and argue without providing anything of substance to their arguments.

The reason for this is by ignoring the Bush failures (RECORD job losses, tow disastrous wars that were terribly directed, to include one that should have never been started but is continuing today) they have no argument. So they attempt to place blame on:

1) Pres. Clinton, who left his successor a budgetary surplus
2) Pres. Obama, only in office for 5 months.

He inherited an incredible economic trainwreck, that saw Pres. Bush's last year in office (2008) come in second only to 1945 (end of the manufacturing for WWII) in job LOSSES. Heck'uva year Brown...I mean George.


Reality is Bush burned down everything, leaving everything to be rebuilt.

Wrong, I was not blaming Bush, but since you wanted to talk about making bad guesses I figured that we should not forget the biggest bad guess in generations, too bad you did not get the point.
