www.washingtonpost.com/.../fact...bush-tax-cu ......
Oct 1, 2012 – FACT CHECKER | It's time for Obama to retire the talking point that Bush tax cuts and deregulation caused the 2008 economic crisis.

"The Facts

We should stipulate at the outset that Romney adamantly rejects the idea that he has proposed more tax cuts for the wealthy. His plan would cut tax rates, but also eliminate tax deductions, which he says would make the plan revenue neutral. But no one has proven that his numbers add up, and the respected nonpartisan Tax Policy Center concluded that the available details on the Romney plan suggest taxes would decrease for the wealthy but rise for the middle class.

Romney has advocated repealing the Dodd-Frank financial regulation bill. As for the role of deregulation in the crisis, there certainly has been news reporting showing that the Bush administration generally took a hands- off approach to regulating financial institutions.

But others would note the irony of Clinton citing the perils of deregulation under Bush because he also is culpable. Clinton signed into law a repeal of the Glass-Steagall law that separated commercial and investment banks — a policy shift that some have said also played a role in the economic crisis. Moreover, Clinton also signed into law the Commodity Futures Modernization Act, which essentially removed derivatives contracts from regulatory oversight. By many accounts, derivatives, such as the credit default swap, were at the heart of the financial crisis.

Indeed, Clinton has admitted that he was given wrong advice about the need to regulate derivatives contracts.“I think they were wrong, and I think I was wrong to take” their advice, Clinton said of his economic advisers.

The Dodd-Frank bill tightened regulations on derivatives contracts, thus reversing the decision that Clinton — not Bush — had made.

While one can argue whether deregulation under Clinton or Bush played a bigger role in the financial crisis, the notion that the Bush tax cuts “led” to the 2008 crisis is especially puzzling. "

Wise up, dummies.

The only thing you can take credit for is disbursing nearly $500 billion a year to the "poor", with other people's money and borrowed money.

You can be proud of that.

I'd love to see you go back to your homeland.

Attempts at repeal
According to historian Glenn W. LaFantasie of Western Kentucky University, "ever since 1985, when Ronald Reagan was serving in his second term as president, there have been repeated attempts to repeal the 22nd Amendment; this proposal has failed repeatedly in Congress, although it is still introduced over and over again." In addition, several Democratic congressmen, including Rep. Barney Frank, Rep. José Serrano, Rep. Howard Berman, and Sen. Harry Reid, have introduced legislation to repeal the Twenty-second Amendment, but each resolution died before making it out of its respective committee. Other alterations have been proposed, including replacing the absolute two term limit with a limit of no more than two consecutive terms and giving Congress the power to grant a dispensation to a current or former president by way of a supermajority vote in both houses.

Now that Obamma has won, you would'nt happen to know what he has planned for the country?
I've heard a bunch of general stuff but nothing specific.
As a former Army Paratrooper and the proud son of a Marine, I have the UTMOST RESPECT for a RAIDER (I actually KNOW what that is, well, WAS.), be that as it may, you seem to know your stuff and I would be gratefull for any usefull information.
(this is an honest attempt at a conversation and I have no desire to trade insults with a RAIDER!)
(even Paratroopers ain't THAT dumb)
Thanks for being civil, unusual concept here. I don't pretend to know what Obama has planned, I was more worried about what Romney SAID he was going to do.
Be careful sharing anything personal here, these vultures are waiting to pick anything you say about yourself apart. I started out like you, just interested in bouncing thoughts off others and trying to understand where the other side was coming from. But on here if you turn the other cheek, you get hit with the other hand.

One for Homer--

(Who ever told you Hostess didn't make Devil Dogs H--was either lying- or as usual-utterly IGNORANT.)

Latest on Hostess-
The ailing company, which also makes Wonder Bread and Drake's cakes, sought permission from bankruptcy court on Monday to liquidate its business, claiming that its operations were crippled by the bakers' strike and that winding down was the best way to preserve its dwindling cash.

Sounds like we Hostess chocolate lovers are outa luck for awhile Homer!

Good on ya - both! Think I told the story about a local old fart who I've taken care of as a patient. Sits at the Romney table at the local restaurant for coffee. Never speaks to me when he's there with the fellas. Stopped me uptown one day and asked how I was doing. Said he still "liked me as a person," but would never be able to talk to me when he was with Rusty (ring leader at their table). We saw him at lunch today (sitting by himself) and had a really nice political conversation with him, discussing issues and what we would like to see happen in the US of A in the next four years. He sure hates Obama, but loves this country like the rest of us.

Why is civility a surprise?
