The biggest propaganda lie ever concocted and foisted upon the American people is the lie that Bush caused our economic crisis. He did not.

Before the Democrats took Congress in 2007 unemployment was 4.1%, gas was $1.70 a gallon, and the economy was expanding.

Then the Democrats took Congress in 2007 and promptly destroyed the economy. When Obama became president in 2009 he made it twice as bad.

Let’s do a little math here:

Bush was president for 8 years, from 2001 to 2009.

As I said, in 2007 unemployment was 4.1% and the economy was expanding. That is SIX years into the Bush presidency mind you - SIX OUT OF EIGHT.

Now, can anyone explain to me why the first six years of the eight-year Bush presidency was just fine, and then magically, when the Democrats took over Congress, the economy tanked? Simple: The Democrats took power. When they took power they pushed their social engineering policy of trying to let minorities who wants to own a house own a house whether they could afford it or not. All the bad loans the banks made, they were browbeat into that the the Left. And THAT was the first domino in line to fall.

As I said: The biggest propaganda lie ever concocted and foisted upon the American people is the lie that Bush caused our economic crisis. In fact, Democrats did, with policies that can find their genesis in the Clinton years.

I love it when people like you GENE and Alumni and The Other LIBTARDS post the undeniable facts. I've done the same myself in pointing out that when the dems took over congress in 2007 everything went to pot as Bush's hands were tied and he actually had become a lame duck. Lets not also forget that the Dodd/Frank sub prime housing fiasco of fanny/freddy caused the real estate collapse. So the dems are responsible for everything negative that happened and did Happen to our economy. Now we have obama residing over the greatest decline in our economy since the Great Depression, yet we still have some Liberal yahoos blaming Bush for this guy's failures. Go Figure! Keep Backing A Looser Gene Anal whatever Im Sure Obama Laughs every night before he goes to his prayer rug!!!!

Bush's big failure was being President while the likes of Pelosi, Frank, Dodd, Reid and Hillary were busy trying to destroy the mean ole banking system while giving away money in an misguided effort to buy inner city and blue state votes. Well, the democrats bought themselves some votes but busted the country in the process. Bush should have recognized what these idiots were up to and stopped the train before the wreck, but he didn't...

Then they give us this POS Alynskyite community organizer whose claim to fame was being black and voting "present".( Don't get me wrong, America has plenty of capable blacks who could make good as president. Unfortunately, Obama isn't on that list).

Remember "I need $700,000,000,000 by Friday or the Banks go under!" speech?

W ask for 700 billion dollars to bail out his rich friends at the banks.

He never saw it coming.....come on. If that's true he was more stupid than we all thought

W started 2 wars for no reason... no way to pay for it. He never tried to find a way to pay for it. W said... phuck it... let someone else worry about

W sold our country to china because.....cheney haliburton could make billions.

W gave tax cuts to the rich while spending at an enormous rate.

Y'all can hope and pray Americans will forget. IT won't Happen

No matter how you scream and fuss.... These are all FACTS that are true.

Well Catfish This is thEASON those Banks asked and GOT the Money!! They were TOLD by The Clinton Regime to give subprime Mortgages to anyone even if they couldnt afored it!! its The MAIN reason We had A collapse in our economy noiw in comes Mr Messiah as you see him and whats he do?? trys to SPEND his way outta of every mess he makes THEN points the Blame at anyone else but himself.......

Basically, it was under Clinton that Fannie and Freddie really began blowing the housing bubble, issuing epic amounts of mortgage-backed debt.

: Liberal Bill Clinton thought he could use government to make everyone a homeowner and so naturally this ended in disaster.

This was all done under the controversial Community Reinvestment Act,
How did they do this? Through rigorous enforcement of housing mandates such as the Community Reinvestment Act, and by prodding mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to make loans to people with lower or no credit credit scores (and to buy loans that had been made by banks and, later,“innovators” like Countrywide).

The Housing Department was Fannie and Freddie’s top regulator — and under Cuomo the mortgage giants were forced to start ramping up programs to issue more subprime loans to the riskiest of borrowers.
And you might say to yourself HOW can this be its the first time we had A balanced budget!! YES we had A balanced budget BECAUSE lets Look at who was running the House and senate..republicans controlled the house and senate till 2001.

Your Truly A Libtard !!Heres your other reason WHY shit went overseas, The so called outsourcing of Jobs!! its your Libtarded Democrats who Screwed us ONCE again!!!!\
The Clinton's threw the doors open with NAFTA and outsourcing Began in Ernest He then used their connections in China to get money to campaign in 96. Hillary is still waiting to get the next round of payoffs from those special interest groups that keep Her Stupid Ass funded. Never forget the aim of the Democrats is to have everyone on some form of public assistance while importing everything from those who pay the most. The Unions drove out the jobs by wanting too much for too little and then the democrats capped things off my not imposing rules for countries wanting to import the proceeds of slave labor to this country....YOUR G.E.D. is showing My Libtarded Friend..

Jerry,
You must have a very short memory!

Don't you remember George Bush Jr was pushing just as hard (maybe harder) for everybody in this country to own his own home - even people with bad credit & minoriites???

If you don't believe me - just go on the internet & key in " George Bush - we want everyone in America to own their own home"

You can actually see & hear Bush Jr begging people - people with bad credit & minorities to go out and buy their own home. Bush is also singing the praises of Fannie May & Freddie Mac...

So, you CANNOT put all this housing crisis on Democrats!!!!!!!!!!

You're either a bald faced liar or you've listened to the lie so many times, you actually believe it.

The time line of the banking crisis is established fact. Barney Frank and a host of democrats fought republicans and Bush for years to get and keep those bad loans for their inner city cronies. Finally, the banks and the Bush administration backed off because of the bad publicity from the liberals in the press.

One more example of liberal democrats and the drive-by media combining to bring down America with stupidity.

Then, 12 years after the deed is done, we're still arguing with "quacks and liars" who want to rewrite history to rehabilitate democrats who were disgraced and left office years ago.

No, you are wrong on both accounts - I'm neither a bald faced liar nor do I recall any lies about the housing crisis - except those coming from Republicans. Of course, that is to be expected - REPUBLICANS LIE ABOUT EVERYTHING!!!

As a matter of fact, Republicans have been famous for LYING through the years. Haven't you ever heard the old expression "lie like a Republican"? Decades ago, this was a pretty common old expression.

I actually lived through the Bush Jr administration & remember George Bush pushing very hard for people (everybody to go out and buy their own home) and he was singing the praises of Fannie May & Freddie Mack.

Are you afraid to go on the internet & see & hear this for yourself. All you've got to do is key up: "We want everyone in America to own their own home - George Bush".

It seems to me someone just said no one can call him names.... but you just called Jerry an idiot. Seems like you have a double standard here. I bet you also argue with other people as well because you think you are the only one with an opinion that counts.

A new chart from the minority side of the Senate Budget Committee shows a startling fact: Almost 1 in 4 Americans between the ages of 25-54 (or prime working years) are not working.
Here's a chart showing those in that age group currently employed (95.6 million) and those who aren't (28.9 million):

"There are 124.5 million Americans in their prime working years (ages 25–54). Nearly one-quarter of this group—28.9 million people, or 23.2 percent of the total—is not currently employed. They either became so discouraged that they left the labor force entirely, or they are in the labor force but unemployed. This group of non-employed individuals is more than 3.5 million larger than before the recession began in 2007," writes the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee.

"Those attempting to minimize the startling figures about America’s vanishing workforce—workplace participation overall is near a four-decade low—will say an aging population is to blame.

But in fact, while the workforce overall has shrunk nearly 10 million since 2009, the cohort of workers in the labor force ages 55 to 64 has actually increased over that same period, with many delaying retirement due to poor economic conditions.

"In fact, over two-thirds of all labor force dropouts since that time have been under the age of 55.

These statistics illustrate that the problems in the American economy are deep, profound, and pervasive, afflicting the sector of the labor force that should be among the most productive."

And now we've got radical Muslims chasing our wives and daughters around trying to cut their heads off!
