Repeal of Glass-Steagall was bi-partisan:
The bill that ultimately repealed the Act was introduced in the Senate by Phil Gramm (Republican of Texas) and in the House of Representatives by Jim Leach (R-Iowa) in 1999. The bills were passed by a Republican majority, basically following party lines by a 54–44 vote in the Senate and by a bi-partisan 343–86 vote in the House of Representatives.
After passing both the Senate and House the bill was moved to a conference committee to work out the differences between the Senate and House versions. The final bill resolving the differences was passed in the Senate 90–8 (one not voting) and in the House: 362–57 (15 not voting). The legislation was signed into law by President Bill Clinton on November 12, 1999.[12]
Hah, LMAO at Nobama who eventually developed a bad case of forgetfulness.

This was from back around pg 8500, there was some terrific stuff going on back then__unlike now.

Ad Celebrates Brewer’s Medicaid Expansion As ‘Fiscally Conservative’

"Gov. Brewer's conservative plan will keep our state's budget balanced while providing quality health care to Arizona's citizens so we can focus our budget on what matters most, like education, public safety and growing our economy," the narrator said in the spot. It closed by urging Arizonans to contact their legislators to pledge support for Brewer's "fiscally conservative Medicaid plan."

Continuing to Get the 2012 Election Wrong

Steve Kornacki interviews Newt Gingrich, who demonstrates some awareness of the distorting effects of the GOP echo chamber, but then says this:

First, there was a belief in economic determinism, that you couldn’t have that level of unemployment and have a president get re-elected. So people just sort of had a bias that as long as the economy stayed bad, he would lose. And of course they proved that in many ways identity politics beat economic politics, which I think is a considerable achievement [bold mine-DL].

Here we see Gingrich continuing to advance the common Republican misreading of the economy that created so many of their false expectations about the 2012 outcome. According to this view, the economic fundamentals pointed to a Republican win, but the truth all along was that the fundamentals consistently favored Obama. The assumption that the state of the economy would drive most voters’ decision-making was not wrong. Republicans failed to take into account the actual state of the economy and minimized the importance of the slow, gradual improvement that had been happening in the previous three years.

It certainly didn’t hurt Obama’s chances that many Americans still held Bush responsible for the country’s woes, which created a significant obstacle to Republican efforts to pin blame on the incumbent, but that wasn’t the only problem. Republicans couldn’t distinguish their economic agenda from Bush’s economic record because there was little or no substantive difference between them, and the economic agenda that their nominee presented also happened to be irrelevant to most voters. The outcome wasn’t proof that “identity politics beat economic politics.” Republicans assumed from the beginning that they would prevail in a contest defined by economic politics when they had little or nothing of interest to say to the electorate. Gingrich later on acknowledges that “in the real world [Republicans] were kidding ourselves” and criticizes it as a failing, but it seems that when it comes to making sense of the role of the economy in the 2012 election Gingrich continues to do just that.

Yeah listen up ahole, I don't get worked up over fools like you but simply check in here daily to learn about what's really going on in the political world.

So today we learned that Iran doesn't like being talked down to by the likes of Joe Biden and that the press is really pizzed that the Worm could get into a place that they couldn't. To the point that the thirty other BB guy's don't even have names. Hah!

You fret way too much boy__kinda like the the insecure Carol who you often answer for__what's up with that anyway?

That said__today over forty Syrian regular army deserters were murdered as they were being returned to Syria by the Iraq government-military. Weird eh?

The Syrian's hauled azz rather than fight the rebels__what is it about these "folks" that makes them want to run for their lives when the shyt hits?

And what is it about mutts like McCain, Graham and fools like you that continue to present these cowards ans dangerous to US security.

We should be sending those cowards Nike running shoes instead of military hardware.

a little originality in your troll agenda would make a for nice change. last months' insults just don't have the same bait factor as some new stuff would.

We have no worries, at least for a couple of years. There will be no budget presented to the president. The senate controlled by democrats refuses to vote on budgets passed by the house.
