You all were awfully silent when Bush pissed away over 5 trillion, and what was that spent on again? Talk about pissing money away.
You say pissed away, I say stopped a full blown depression dead in it's tracks.

If Mitt Romney Loses, Blame All the Time the GOP Wasted This Cycle

The conspiracy theories, the obviously unqualified primary candidates, the Clint Eastwood speech -- it all adds up to a lot of opportunities lost.

Birtherism wasn't the only time-suck of a theory.

The Republicans never voted for anything Obama wanted but now you tell me that they finally voted for a Obama plan & it was to cut military spending.

Besides, it’s not as if Powell’s endorsement comes as a surprise. On foreign policy alone, Romney has gone out of his way to make himself unacceptable to someone like Powell, and there are enough other disagreements on domestic policy that it would have always been a stretch for him to justify backing Romney. If he were going to endorse Romney, he presumably would have done so on foreign policy and national security grounds, and Romney’s campaign this year made it impossible for him to do that. Voters that would take Powell’s criticism of Romney’s foreign policy seriously have already reached a judgment about Romney’s readiness to be president, and I suspect the vast majority of them already reached the same conclusion Powell did.

Sheesh, Romney surges in the polls and the stock market takes a dump. Fortunately he is slipping back and the market is starting to right itself again.
Very foretelling of the future if Romney were to win.
Clint Eastwood was right. When Barack Obama's leadership has been needed, he has been absent.

~While at the University of Chicago, according to Senior Lecturer Richard Epstein, "Obama did the minimal amount of work to get through. No one remembers him. He was not a participant in luncheons or workshops. He was here and gone."

~As a U.S. senator for less than one term, according to Gov Track.us, "From Jan 2005 to Oct 2008, Obama missed 314 of 1300 recorded or roll call votes, which is 24.0%. This is worse than the median of 2.4%."

~As President, the Government Accountability Institute points out that from January 23, 2009 until May 31, 2012, President Obama was in office for 1,225 days and only attended 536 presidential daily briefs, an anemic 43.8% attendance record.
(The Obama administration contends that holding such meetings is not important, that the president simply reads his PDB when there is no meeting.)

~According to CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller, President Obama has held 208 fundraisers since filing papers for re-election including 141 so far in 2012.
(For comparison's sake, President George W. Bush, who was facing a tough re-election campaign attended a total of 97 fundraisers.)

When was the last time President Obama met with Congress members?

President Obama, where art thou?

“Let Detroit Go Bankrupt.” But Romney has done a good job of concealing, until now, the fact that he and his wife, Ann, personally gained at least $15.3 million from the bailout—and a few of Romney’s most important Wall Street donors made more than $4 billion. Their gains, and the Romneys’, were astronomical—more than 3,000 percent on their investment.
It all starts with Delphi Automotive, a former General Motors subsidiary whose auto parts remain essential to GM’s production lines. No bailout of GM—or Chrysler, for that matter—could have been successful without saving Delphi. So, in addition to making massive loans to automakers in 2009, the federal government sent, directly or indirectly, more than $12.9 billion to Delphi—and to the hedge funds that had gained control over it.
One of the hedge funds profiting from that bailout—&#8232;$1.28 billion so far—is Elliott Management, directed by &#8232;Paul Singer. According to The Wall Street Journal, Singer has given more to support GOP candidates—$2.3 million—than anyone else on Wall Street this election season. His personal giving is matched by that of his colleagues at Elliott; collectively, they have donated $3.4 million to help elect Republicans this season, while giving only $1,650 to Democrats. And Singer is influential with the GOP presidential candidate; he’s not only an informal adviser but, according to the Journal, his support was critical in helping push Representative Paul Ryan onto the ticket."
And you idiots bitch about paying for free lunches for poor kids?
You still haven't told us why Obama saved the union pensions and threw the Delphi pensions under the bus.

And, we're tired of paying for the free lunches in Washington with money that should be going toward education. Eliminate the Department of Education and send the same amount of money directly to the states. Then, education would automatically get more money just by ending an obviously failed program in Washington.

Focusing on the dream of home ownership for the nation’s minorities, President Bush on Saturday credited his tax relief program for being a key to driving the housing market to record levels.

“Because of tax relief, Americans have more to save, spend and invest — and that means millions of American families have moved into their first homes,” Bush said in his weekly radio address as he spent the weekend at his ranch.

Bush drive for home ownership fueled housing bubble

For much of the Bush presidency, the White House was preoccupied by terrorism and war; on the economic front, its pressing concerns were cutting taxes and privatizing Social Security, a government retirement and disability benefits program. The housing market was a bright spot: Ever-rising home values kept the economy humming, as owners drew down on their equity to buy consumer goods and pack their children off to college.

Lawrence Lindsay, Bush's first chief economic adviser, said there was little impetus to raise alarms about the proliferation of easy credit that was helping Bush meet housing goals.

"No one wanted to stop that bubble," Lindsay said. "It would have conflicted with the president's own policies."

You got oversight right. Pelosi and Reid were warned and did nothing, but your allegations of the cause are misplaced.
The CRA redline area loans have a much higher solvency rate than the ones that were bank voluntary. If you want to look for the smoking gun, check into the lender practices connected with the G-L-B Act.
