Aug 8, 2013 Full story: The Daily Beast 12,467

As the Virginia Flaggers loft their Confederate flag in opposition to the 'tyranny' of 2013, Jamelle Bouie argues that racial bias plays at least some part in Obama's collapse in the South.

The recession was caused by not having the money to fix it before it happened, and we didn't have the money because George Bush gave it away in 2001 and then started spending.
Who did Bush give it away to?

They're using pretend money now, why didn't they then?

yur full of crap:

I get so tired of educating those who refuse to acknowledge the truth. For the last time, the Bush Tax cuts resulted in 54 straight months of economic growth. The recession occurred after Democrats gained control of Congress and began wildly borrowing and spending trillions of dollars and implementing their bone-headed and supremely irresponsible fiscal policy.

The economic numbers don't lie. Take a look for yourself:
http://forecast-chart.com/chart-gdp-rate.html

The economy grew every single quarter until Q4 of 2008. That's solid continual economic growth that directly resulted from the Bush Tax Cuts.

The economy didn't take a shit until a year and a half after Democrats took over Congress and their socialist policies were in place

Bush's figures are right there in the chart, GDP went from app.$11 trillion to $15 trillion under Bush, because of his tax cuts, obviously tax receipts went up as well.

Federal tax receipts under Bush

From $2.04 trillion in 2000 to $2.7 trillion in 2008 tax revenue rose under Bush, now suck on that, or try to deny it.

http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/taxfacts/displ...

The same tax charts will show you federal revenue continued to rise under Ospenda and the dems, however the yearly deficits soared into the trillions.

Where did the money go? The dems spent it.

Those were due to continuing resolutions at Republican Majority levels, and Spending Bills to support the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, there was no approval of Democrat spending by George Bush, he signed continuing resolutions to keep the Government operating after the Dems won the majority in the house.
Those spending levels were approved by the Republican majority that went unchecked before 2007 in accumulating those deficits, and those spending level continued because Bush refused to sign Democrat legislation sent to this desk.
Yur mistaken, Bush refused to sign almost nothing. When the dems took over and larded up the budget he finally put his foot down.

"NEW ALBANY, Ind., Nov. 13 , 2007-- A budget dispute erupted into a full-scale battle Tuesday as President Bush vetoed the Democrats' top-priority domestic spending bill and the party's Senate leader threatened to withhold war funding if the president does not agree to pull out of Iraq.

Bush Veto Sets Up Clash on Budget
Bush Vetoes Health and Education Bill
The long-anticipated clash came to a head as Bush rejected a $606 billion bill to fund education, health and labor programs, complaining that it is too expensive and is larded with pork. Within hours, Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) declared that Bush will not get more money to pay for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan this year unless he accepts a plan to complete troop withdrawals by the end of next year"

"The exchange encapsulated a broader confrontation over national priorities, a battle both sides appear eager to wage heading into an election year. As Bush demands full funding for the war, he signaled that Tuesday's action will be the first of a cascade of vetoes killing other spending bills, casting himself as a deficit hawk blocking a tax-and-spend Congress."

Having researched the treasury website, you seem to look beyond the summary that accompanies those deficit amounts.
You can even see where the tax cuts reduced revenue into the treasury as the Bush and Republican spending increased annually until 2007 when Democrats won the majority after winning the 2006 mid term elections.

Democrats seated on Jan. 3rd, 2007 - six months before the banking and housing crash.
Need proof? You gave none - here's a refresher;
"The One Hundred Tenth United States Congress was the meeting of the legislative branch of the United States federal government, between January 3, 2007, and January 3, 2009, during the last two years of the second term of President George W. Bush. It was composed of the Senate and the House of Representatives. The apportionment of seats in the House was based on the 2000 U.S. census."

Now, when did Bush and Paulson request TARP to begin the bailouts?
"The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (Division A of Pub.L. 110343, 122 Stat. 3765, enacted October 3, 2008), commonly referred to as a bailout of the U.S. financial system, is a law enacted in response to the subprime mortgage crisis authorizing the United States Secretary of the Treasury to spend up to $700 billion to purchase distressed assets, especially mortgage-backed securities, and supply cash directly to banks. The funds for purchase of distressed assets were mostly redirected to inject capital into banks and other financial institutions while the Treasury continued to examine the usefulness of targeted asset purchases.[1][2] Both foreign and domestic banks are included in the program. The Federal Reserve also extended help to American Express, whose bank-holding application it recently approved.[3] The Act was proposed by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson during the global financial crisis of 2008."

See a correlation between TARP , the Great Recession, and the deficit?
If you don't, you're willfully blind due to your ideology.

This isn't study material, this is a hatchet opinion job on CRA to propagandize the twisted narratives deflecting the blame from the Republicans policies that cause an economic melt down of the United States financial system.

Your entire assumption on credit worthiness prior to credit scores is ethnicity and gender which were the legal basis for CRA and all discriminatory lending laws and the establishment of enforcement mechanisms.

Those are fascist policies practiced and accepted by Fascist.

Part of the conspiracy in perpetrating economic genocide with in America's capitalist system. Republicans used this inept theory to demonstrate against banking regulations as they use and exaggerate most any and every kind of regulation in America's markets.

Stop Covering Up And Kill The CRA
11/28/2008 06:38 PM ET
Regulation: The Community Reinvestment Act is to blame for the financial crisis, but it so powerfully serves Democrats' interests that they'll do anything to protect it including revising history.
The CRA coerces banks into making loans based on political correctness, and little else, to people who can't afford them. Enforced like never before by the Clinton administration, the regulation destroyed credit standards across the mortgage industry, created the subprime market, and caused the housing bubble that has now burst and left us with the worst housing and banking crises since the Great Depression.
The CRA should be abolished, along with the government-sponsored enterprises that fueled the secondary market for subprimes under pressure from Clinton, who ordered HUD to set quotas for "affirmative action" lending at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
But powerful Democrats in Washington want to protect the act along with Fannie and Freddie and spin the subprime scandal as the result of too little regulation, not too much.
"Repealing or weakening the CRA would be a mistake," warns Senate Banking Committee Chairman Chris Dodd, D-Conn., who argues that the CRA should be strengthened.
Dodd, the top recipient of Fannie donations and himself a beneficiary of a sweetheart mortgage brokered by a subprime lender, recently invited one of Clinton's top enforcers of the CRA to testify.
"The notion that CRA has caused this problem is a pernicious thought," said former Comptroller of the Currency Gene Ludwig. "These are not truthful statements. The CRA has helped to create a better and sounder world for finance, not the opposite."
Dead wrong. But the mainstream media believe it, and have attacked those, including this paper, who dare to tell the truth about the crisis. Already the debacle has erased $13 trillion in wealth, while putting taxpayers on the hook for up to $8 trillion in bailouts.

Prior to CRA in 1977, Minorities were illegally frozen out of purchasing property where they desired by blatant discriminatory practices,

What matrix was used to determine credit worthiness before 1987? Based on your below reply the assumption was based solely on ethnicity.

There is no credibility in believing a man working beside you couldn't also make the same housing payments you could, or purchase a property in the same neighborhood other than racism, while earning the same salary.

How does a man earning the same salary on the same job with you not qualify for the same price home you may have been qualified to purchase? All things being equal, how is it possible to paint everybody with such a broad brush without being bias?

What analysis have you to prove the majority of Blacks have Bad Credit, how about Women and Native Americans or Hispanics before CRA they were equally shut out of consumer loans. That's a long perpetuated stereotype with no basic in fact that minorities are any more above average in not being credit worthiness. That's the reason for the adoption of credit rating and CRA among other enforcement measure against discrimination in lending and economic genocide.

This is part of the thinking that makes Conservatives obsolete in American Politics and why those theories and ideas the Republicans have are thoroughly rejected by an overwhelming majority of he Electorate

No, because of the area they wished to purchase. No bank wants to loan money to a person that wants to purchase in a market on the decline. It's bad enough if a bank has to endure the expense of a foreclosure, but it's even worse when they have to foreclose on a house that's worth 20 thousand dollars less than the money the lent out.
Banks like employers don't care about race or gender. They care about making profit. This whole housing mess started because minorities were upset that they didn't qualify for standard home loans. It wasn't because of their race, it was because of their credit. It's just that many blacks have bad credit so it was viewed as racial.

We're not talking any other tax than than actual income tax. Nearly half of this country doesn't pay income taxes. They pay other taxes such as sales taxes and deductions from their paycheck, but no income taxes. No skin in the game.
Everyone that receives a pay check has skin in the game, all social programs are funded by wage taxes, not income taxes. The working poor and middle class that pays no income taxes foot the bill for the social safety net programs all funded through the mandatory spending portion of the budget.

Sales taxes are applied to local spending, there is no federal sales tax at the consumer end. Any salary below $35,000 with dependents because of credits and exemptions generally has a zero INCOME tax liability but pay upwards of 15% in federal wages and unemployment taxes. Federal income taxes fund discretionary spending of the federal budget.

10 to 15% of $30,000 is definitely skin in the game.

Mandatory Spending Items: These include the major entitlement programs, such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, all supported by wage taxes. Almost all of them are permanent, but there are exceptions. For example, the Food Stamp program requires periodic renewal.(Source: Senate Appropriations Committee,

Discretionary Spending Items: For 2014
Defense -$520.5 billion.
Health and Human Services -$78.3 billion.
Education -$71.2 billion.
Veterans Administration -$63.2 billion.
Homeland Security -$39.3 billion.
Energy Department -$34 billion (includes $11.2 billion for the National Nuclear Security Administration).

This is the third time I'll ask, what legislation did Bush sign into law which the democrats forwarded to his desk after the Dems won the majority other than the appropriations for the Department of Defense?

You've found links to post, why can you not provide a link or copy any information that sheds light on legislation Bush signed after 2007?
