Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Obama promised to cut government spending but wants to blame the Republicans because he can't get his new taxes. He's happy the Bush tax cuts have expired, he can blame that on the Republicans too.

I'd like an administration is a budget they can pass through Congress, reform and reductions without the campaign blame game.

Here's the Savings and Loan history you're trying to talk about: "1980: After interest rates rise 13 percentage points in 2 years, President Carter signs law further hollowing out Glass-Steagall. The measure—pushed through by Sen. Jake Garn (R-Utah), a former insurance executive—demolishes usury caps for mortgages and raises bar for prosecuting lenders.

Jan 1981: Sen. Garn becomes chair of Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee with fellow deregulation advocate M. Danny Wall as majority staff director. American Banker exults that "lobbyists here view Mr. Wall's promotion as a gift swept to shore by the [GOP] tide last election day."

1982: Sen. Garn coauthors Garn-St. Germain Depository Institutions Act, which deregulates savings and loan industry.

Jeb Bush

1984: S&Ls start crashing in Texas as oil boom peters out. More than 1,000 thrifts nationwide will fail between 1986 and 1995; debacle will cost $500 billion, including $124 billion in taxpayer money.

April 2, 1987: Sen. John McCain meets with federal regulators to discuss investigation of Lincoln Savings and Loan. The thrift's owner, Charles Keating, was the senator's business partner and campaign contributor, and flew McCain around on his private jet.

Sept: Drexel Burnham Lambert, home to "junk-bond king" Michael Milken, creates "collateralized debt obligations" (CDOS)—securities made up of myriad loans and bonds with different risk levels.

Dec 9, 1988: Silverado S&L collapses, leaving $1.3 billion taxpayer liability; board members include Neil Bush, who engineered loans to friends in what federal Office of Thrift Supervision will call "multiple conflicts of interest." Bush later tells Congress a few of his deals may have looked "a little fishy."

Feb 6, 1989: President George H.W. Bush bails out S&L industry; among those helped is his son, Jeb, as government takes over most of a $5 million second mortgage on his Miami office building."

Barney Frank became chairman of the House Financial Committee in 2007...I guess we've all found out where Gormless Old Pukes go to die...

It was due a few weeks ago and he missed the deadline again. Only two out of four years.

No one bought this line of republican nonsense
when you posted it before the election.

Republicans are the rich for the rich, and you with your small income have been taken in.

Keep post fun to read.

The crisis started during the Clinton administration when Fannie and Freddie were "let loose" with very little oversight.
The two budgets Obama proposed was rejected unanimously in the Senate by every single Democrat. If they had voted for even more spending, they might lose their comfy seats in the Senate.
If the Senate refuses to even bring up any bills passed by the House, they become culpable of obstruction.
But thanks for trying.

So___you're saying that Countrywide Financial and HSBC were "not" savings and loans?

Why then is the Chicago poster talking about S&L's, is he having flashbacks to "olden times?"

http://thinkprogress.org/
According to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, Obama set the target for deficit reduction far too low failing to mention the $4 trillion economists were calling for after the Simpson-Bowles report is now more like $6.7 trillion today. "By that measure, our debt problems will be far from solved".

Keep in mind it was the president who first proposed the sequester and insisted it become law.

The Republican Senate leader expressed his opposition saying, "the American people will not support more tax hikes in place of the meaningful spending reductions both parties already agreed to and the president signed into law."

That says it all.
