You never explained how you were duped into thinking Obama killing the American ambassador and 3 other Americans in Libya.

And, you never told us who told Susan Rice what to say all over the television networks and at the UN when she repeated the obvious lie that the American ambassador to Libya and 3 other Americans were killed by a spontaneous demonstration about a video that didn't even exist when Al Qaeda planned the attack and around the whole world that video had a grand total of 17 hits before Obama blamed the Al Qaeda attack on the US consulate on it.

So, dupe, who told Susan Rice what to say on all the television networks and at the UN?

... well, dupe?

Strange, huh? Especially after all that was said by him and Hillary back in 2008...
Bill had to be dragged out of the shadows to try and save Obama's butt in the name of party loyalty. Nothing more.
Remember how the Bush' trashed John McCain? Saying his adopted daughter from Bangladesh was his "love child"?
The Republicans play the dirtiest, even with their own.

I'd even bet that that anti muslim video released in Libya was the work of Karl Rove.

You never explained how you were duped into thinking Obama killing the American ambassador and 3 other Americans in Libya isn't a significant event.

Nonsense. A consensus of pundits and economists agree with fred that Democrats collapsed the economy with high energy prices and sub prime mortgages.

What Caused the Financial Crisis?
An article in the NY Times, "Pressured to Take on Risk, Fannie Hit a Tipping Point," is causing many people to wonder if Fannie and Freddie caused the financial crisis.
First, let me clarify the question. We are asking what caused the housing bubble, and, by definition, the cause cannot be explained by changes in an underlying market fundamental. I don't mean that we can't point to, say, a rumor that led to a rapid increase in the price of some good as speculators rush in, just that bubbles - by definition - are divorced from market fundamentals.
I think a more interesting question is what sets the stage for a bubble to emerge - what allows the rumor, irrational exuberance, etc., to express itself as a bubble? One thing that is needed is liquidity and credit, some way of substantially increasing demand. This is the air that inflates the bubble. Even if all the other conditions for a bubble to emerge are present, if there is no way to inflate the bubble - no way for speculators to rush in and drive up the price - then it won't inflate.
Wrong!!

Here's what did it:

Bush offers up 'ownership society'

""Bush is placing new emphasis on restructuring Social Security, the centerpiece of his ownership pitch, as he lays out his second-term priorities in Wednesday’s State of the Union address and his 2006 budget next week.

The phrase “ownership society” began popping up in presidential speeches three years ago, as Bush took note of the growing numbers of Americans who own stock and of the importance of home ownership.

As early as February 2002, Bush said at a conference on retirement savings,“I want America to be an ownership society, a society where a life of work becomes a retirement of independence.” Even as Texas governor, he told senior citizens:“Ownership in our society should not be an exclusive club.... Everyone should be a part owner in the American dream.”

Bush made the banks loan money to people who couldn't pay it back because it made him look good - until the loans defaulted.

America gets it - that's why Obama will be reelected!!

Actually, we were climbing out of it in January, 2007, when the Democrats took over all the purse strings of the US government and were handed a declining 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit DURING A WAR, and a total debt of 5 trillion dollars.
What have the Demcorats done to that since?
Did you say they increased the deficit by ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED PERCENT?
Did you say the more than tripled the debt to the 16 trillion dollars it is today?

Thanks for clearing that up for us.

Nonsense. Democrats blackmailed bankers into issuing mortgages to minorities of face the charge of racism, collapsing the financial sector.

WALTER RUSSELL MEAD: Black Depression.

The October employment numbers deepened the gloom among African Americans and those (including the Via Meadia team) who believe that the United States as a whole cannot progress as it should unless African Americans are getting ahead too. As a report from Think Progress reminds us, in October, African American unemployment rose almost a full percentage point to 14.3 percent.

As we’ve noted in earlier posts, unemployment is only part of the story. America’s Black middle class is facing a crisis of historic proportions. African Americans were among the biggest losers in the housing bubble; well intentioned but ill advised policy changes intended to get more low income families and marginal households into home ownership kicked in just in time to lure African American families into the housing market at the peak of the bubble. The loss of wealth and savings has been nothing short of catastrophic; decades of progress in building net worth for middle class and lower middle class minority families have been wiped out since 2007.

So. How’s that hopey-changey stuff workin’ out for ya?
