You would be hard-pressed to find any credible source who puts the economic crash solely on Bush's shoulders.
What led up to it goes back much further than 2007 or 2008.
However, if you took a macroeconomics course in your local community college, you'd learn that too.
It's a good thing you're here to take the blame off of bushie boy and place it.... well....'somewhere' else!

"Alaska Democrats See a Palin Legacy They Can Like
Nicole Bengiveno/The New York Times

By KIRK JOHNSON
Published: November 27, 2013

ANCHORAGE — For many Alaskans, Sarah Palin is a figure in the rearview mirror, the memories of her time as governor obscured and distorted by the national spotlight she stepped into as Republican vice-presidential candidate, pundit and Tea Party darling. And often as not the memories come with a grumble anyway, since her shooting-star career mostly took off after leaving the state.

Jack Roderick, a former mayor of Anchorage, said:“She did the right thing. She put in a tax that was tough on the big guys.”

But now the Palin legacy is being burnished, if not a little airbrushed, by a seemingly unlikely source: Democrats. The reason is oil.

Ms. Palin was elected governor in 2006 on a pledge to clean house after revelations of oil-industry corruption in the State Legislature, and in 2007 oversaw a sweeping overhaul of policy that included big new taxes on oil profits. But this year Gov. Sean Parnell — Ms. Palin’s lieutenant governor, and successor after her resignation in 2009 — led a drive in the Republican-controlled Legislature to repeal the Palin tax package, arguing that it discouraged new exploration. That is a big issue in Alaska, where oil taxes pay for 90 percent of the state’s general fund budget.

But that was not the end of it. Opponents of the new law gathered enough signatures this spring and summer to put the issue on the statewide ballot next year. They want voters to repeal Mr. Parnell’s new tax plan and replace it with Ms. Palin’s old one...."

Obamacare does NOT PROVIDE health care.
Obamacare CONTROLS health care.
Until you can digest this fundamental purpose of big government, you will never understand its consequences.
They go hand-in-hand. By CONTROLLING health insurance providers, the ACA insures that proper health care will be PROVIDED. History has shown that we can't have one without the other.

FACT: Anyway you look at it, MILLIONS with pre-existing conditions will now be able to AFFORD health care as a result of the ACA. I call that "providing health care".

Just looking at Biden's and Obama's tax returns the first time around, the charity part seemed to be pretty skimpy.

The Pilgrims figured out communal living didn't work for the same reasons it doesn't work today.

People back then didn't mind watching other people work either as long as they got the same stuff. The Pilgrims ditched communal living rather quickly and were actually the first capitalists - dividing up the land and saying 'do it yourself or don't eat.'

Yes, the day of reckoning has yet to be seen. The Democrats insisted everything was just fine with Fannie and Freddie. Far more Democrats stuffed money from F*F into their pockets than Republicans while saying this to the American public.
Seems greed is bipartisan. Timothy Geithner, Charlie Rangel, Barney Frank, John Kerry and Barack Obama just to name a few apparently got their hands dirty by greed as well.
Then there was the Democratic Congressman whose freezer was packed full with ill-confiscated money. Sounds like greed to me.
Ah! You political stories!

Oh, and let's not forget about the death panel, oops, I mean the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB.)

"Death Panel"?

Nah, of course not..."even though its function is to decide which lifesaving treatments will be paid for and which ones, because of cost, a chronic condition, and/or advanced age, will be denied."

You seem to forget it was greedy Republicans who increased their leverage by borrowing against their homes to invest in the stock market. Talk about untamed greed!!! The day of reckoning is coming and Republicans will, once again, be the biggest whiners after losing their shirts. The difference this time around is there are no bailouts are in your future.

Wonder if she found Bush to far to the left

A C A is simply President Obama following President George W Bush's footsteps. President George W Bush expanded Medicare to include Prescription drugs!

Monday, December 8, 2003 Posted: 1:23 PM EST
WASHINGTON (CNN)-- President Bush on Monday signed into law landmark Medicare reform legislation that includes prescription drug benefits and has sparked a bitter fight between opponents and supporters.
Speaking at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington,

Bush characterized the measure as

"the greatest advance in health care coverage for America's seniors since the founding of Medicare."

Do you understand that more people will have a much more difficult time getting prompt health care or that the CBO estimates 30 million will still be uninsured under this big government takeover?
Big government is guilty of "idolatry of money" more than anyone. Except they're idolatry lies with "other people's money."
We have already discussed the 30 million uninsured. Don't you remember? The system was not designed to provide insurance fro everyone. It doesn't cover illegals or those who do not qualify for medicaid and can't afford coverage even with a subsidy. We knew that from the beginning.(Of course, we didn't know that so many Republican governors would refuse to expand Medicaid).

As far as people having "a much more difficult time getting prompt health care", that's conjecture...another conspiracy theory. Wait and see.

Newsflash! 40% of Americans identify as Independents and they tend to lean more toward Republicans than Democrats. So, your claimed 33% share of the electorate plus just over half of Independents gives you your 54% polling number.

Republicans have proven that they can't "work with" anyone. There is no sense in even trying.

The few good things in Obamacare - pre-existing conditions being one of them - could have been legislated separately without Obama and the IRS taking over our lives and telling us what insurance coverage we HAVE to buy whether we want it or need it or not.

And causing a major upheaval in everyone's lives when only 15% of Americans weren't happy before.

We needed changes - but not giving up our individual rights to make our own choices.

Do you not see what's wrong with that?

You have a tendency to try and pass your shortcomings on to others. I know for a fact that I am far more generous of my time and money than a whiner like yourself. And, just for the record, I never tip less than 20%...never.
