Agreed.

Oh, wait, I bet you were employing sarcasm...

The Democrats led Americans to the worst recession since 1929 via the Community Restoration Act, a liberal idea that every one should be able to own a home even if they couldn't afford one.Problem is weird things happen when you can't pay your mortgage.
Bull.

The repeal of Glass-Steagal by the GOP Congress under Clinton would later spread the bad home loan crisis to the financial markets. But let's go the beginning of crisis.

Alan Greenspan lit the fuse with low interest rates.

Then Bush signed The American Dream Act passed by a GOP majority which greatly eased the 10% downpayment obstacle.

The banks themselves made bad loans. They were "bad" because the banks themselves set them up that way. They knew the borrower would default, in which case the bank would keep the payments and own a more valuable house in what at that time was a rising market.

The FBI warned Congressional leaders in 2004 of an impending financial disaster.

And how did the Repubilcan majority act? They did nothing.

That a handful of Democrat senators and congressmen acted on behalf of the banks hardly absolves the GOP Congress from an incredible display of negligence.

Furthermore, when the Dems regained the majority in 2007, one of the first things they did was to rein in home loans. But by then, the damage was done and the dam getting ready to burst.

Elephants busted again.

Obama is either a Kenyan, an Indonesian, an admissions-fraud perpetrator, a really bad student, or has decided his school records are none of your business.

None of which was proven before he went on the Presidential ballot, Congress having had a year to dig.

"Mr. Bin Laden used to live in Sudan ... And wed been hearing that the Sudanese wanted America to start meeting with them again. They released him. At the time,'96, he had committed no crime against America so I did not bring him here because we had no basis on which to hold him, though we knew he wanted to commit crimes against America."
William Clinton
February 2002 business luncheon in Long Island, New York
You keep tilting at windmills, and like Don Quixote you keep getting knocked off the saddle.

Now if you can prove there was evidence of Bin Laden involved in an indictable offense as of 1996, then hurray for you. Because that would prove Clinton was negligent.

But alas, Don Quixote, no such evidence existed. Try to get it through your skull that the attacks at Nairobi and the USS Cole were two years down the road.

So Clinton was right. There was no grounds upon which to make an arrest.

And the Sudanese offer of extradition fell through because it was based on Saudi compliance which did not materialize.

Check and mate.

No, no sarcasm here. A majority of people who are involved in tragedies get that way due to their own stupid decisions. If you lose everything in a natural disaster it's probably your own damn fault. Why should my tax dollars be used to bail you out? Anyway, the only thing that really matters is that President Obama's campaign wasn't adversely affected by the storm.

I've seen you Repubs call the POTUS all kinds of vile names. We Democrats only called Bush dumb. That pretty much summed it all up.

While on the subject of Bush. Only a few days left to persuade us Dems to vote for Mitt. Have any of you come up with just ONE difference between Romney and Bush? Just ONE example of where the ideas of Mitt are any different from Bush?
