Shows where the majority of you sheep's heads are at.
    Yes, and the tech bubble was Bush's fault, and CRA was Bush's fault also, RIGHT? Clinton and CRA did more to destroy the housing market than anything. ACORN use to file protest against every bank merger announced coutrywide in order to extort cash and unwarrented home loans from the banks to allow mergers to go through. The result?, large numbers of home buyers no where near capable of paying for homes, negative amortization home loans, interest only home loans, followed by lots and lots of foreclosures. These cycles usually take 7 to 10 years to play out and poof, the housing collapse.

    Irresponsible governance has been around for a very long time, only now we have an administration willing to violate the constitution and break the law repeatedly, like its his own candy store. PLEASE send this thread to he trash pile. Cajunhawk too doped up on sugar from the coolaid...

    let's not forget that even though there were close to 20 written warnings by the Bush administration we had testimony from the chairmen of the House and Senate committees that all was well with F-Mae and F-Mac

    -I can still see the Videos of Barney Frank and Chris Dodd and their saying all was well and there was nothing to worry about---The damn thing put this country and its savings back 10 years and worse got the dumbest president as far as knowledge of the private sector ever!!!

    He has no education in business as far as we know---he has NO experience ---and he has surrounded himself with the least # of advisors from the private business community ever!!!

    Dude, no need to be a dick to people. The patriot act is a travesty that was initiated under the bush administration and has been expanded under the Obama administration. Lets all just drop this partisan finger pointing and actually work on solutions.

    The Patriot Act is a great thing---The Patriot Act is a horrible thing---If used correctly its the former---if used incorrectly it is the later---But the economic solution being tried by this group along with the Obama health situation has got to be stopped and the only way is at the ballot box!!!

Watch "The Queen of Versailles", and realize that ACORN had no part in this, regardless of what Rush told you.

    The deregulation of the Financial Sector did not happen until 1999 by a Republican Congress. That has done more to fuel the bubble bursting affects than anything Clinton or Obama could have done, and it was not done out of Partisan ____ing contests...it was a backdoor money deal that would have happened regardless of who held the control of Congress. 7 years sounds about right. Toss in the madness that is rampant oil speculation and what you have is an economy based on "____ you-get money" principles.



    Only now? Didn't Richard Nixon say it was perfectly OK for the President to break the law? Wasn't that on National TV? Obama is nothing new to DC my friend. If you think this is new...you need to stop listening to Rush, and unscrew your head from your ___. Please tell me how the Patriot Act wasn't an infringement on the constitution. I would love to know how unlawful search and seizure being thrown out is not complete disregard for this country and it's founding ____ing document. And you misspelled Koolaid dip____.
    Not sure your back ground but we saw the housing mess coming even well before 2005 and the data pointed to lots of real-estate purchases and government policies prior to 2000 (Barney Frank made sure of that), that stuff had everthing to do with Clinton and CRA and anyone involved with the law new it. ACORN was just a pawn to leverage special interest power.

    OH and by the way, Nixon resigned, should we expect the same from mini-me currently in the White House? I also don't listen to Rush and I miss-spelled Koolaid on purpose, I guess you didn't get the joke with EL-Presidente and his sunglassess, beer drinking, golf playing COOLness, right? However, it does not surprise that you would evolve to blog cursing, thats all liberals do when they dont know facts and get PO'ed.

    As for Patriot Act, presidents throughout the history of this country enact laws under war-time, just check out FDR's actions. This Patriot Act as bad as some things are, it did aid in battling fraud and money laundering in the banking industry in a very big way. But rather than dialing back some aspects of these laws, Obama is going full force in expanded supression of the American public.

    By the way Ms. Pelosi is finally seeing whats in this new Obama health plan and has even lost the Unions. YEAH!

    This is my final political diatribe or defense of such for at least a year...

    GO CAJUNS, WE ARE ONE!!!

    I think that any time you give the federal government the ability to abuse it's power, its a horrible thing. The government should always fear the people and not the other way around.
