For Beshear and his party--you are so right.
Beshear has not been too bad for Ky.where he plays a small part in the national scene..He did get his main competitor out of the way by making him a judge for life.But he had to give up his desire to have Casinos in KY to do it.Judd-for anything?Not likely.

The big case for Beshear right now is what he will do with the electricity problem and the aluminum smelters in Ky.That will be a loss of some 2000 jobs!!And two companies as they pull out.!He has no answer.

Maybe he can put it off till after the election or onto the next generation ,just as Congress and the POTUS>?

Nooo,Bush was not the only one involved.His war certainly did not help,but it was the Freddie and Fannie housing bubble really set it off.That was the Democrats fault,you know,Frank and Dodd.But then,this is still not accepted by the Democrats.

Not being part of the Repub. party,not being there to be in the know,don`t know if they were invited or decided to not show>

Need more time to read reality ? If you don't "get" some of the words, just ask !!!

"We can put light where there's darkness, and hope where there's despondency in this country. And part of it is working together as a nation to encourage folks to own their own home."

- President George W. Bush, Oct. 15, 2002

The global financial system was teetering on the edge of collapse when Bush and his economics team huddled in the Roosevelt Room of the White House for a briefing that, in the words of one participant, "scared the hell out of everybody."

It was Sept. 18. Lehman Brothers had just gone belly-up, overwhelmed by toxic mortgages. Bank of America had swallowed Merrill Lynch in a hastily arranged sale. Two days earlier, Bush had agreed to pump $85 billion into the failing insurance giant American International Group.

The president listened as Ben Bernanke, chairman of the Federal Reserve, laid out the latest terrifying news: The credit markets, gripped by panic, had frozen overnight, and banks were refusing to lend money.

Then his Treasury secretary, Henry Paulson Jr., told him that to stave off disaster, he would have to sign off on the biggest government bailout in history. Bush, according to several people in the room, paused for a single, stunned moment to take it all in.

"How," he wondered aloud, "did we get here?"

Eight years after arriving in Washington vowing to spread the dream of home ownership, Bush is leaving office, as he himself said recently, "faced with the prospect of a global meltdown" with roots in the housing sector he so ardently championed.

There are plenty of culprits, like lenders who peddled easy credit, consumers who took on mortgages they could not afford and Wall Street chieftains who loaded up on mortgage-backed securities without regard to the risk.

But the story of how the United States got here is partly one of Bush's own making, according to a review of his tenure that included interviews with dozens of current and former administration officials.

From his earliest days in office, Bush paired his belief that Americans do best when they own their own homes with his conviction that markets do best when left alone. Bush pushed hard to expand home ownership, especially among minority groups, an initiative that dovetailed with both his ambition to expand Republican appeal and the business interests of some of his biggest donors. But his housing policies and hands-off approach to regulation encouraged lax lending standards.

Bush did foresee the danger posed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government-sponsored mortgage finance giants. The president spent years pushing a recalcitrant Congress to toughen regulation of the companies, but was unwilling to compromise when his former Treasury secretary wanted to cut a deal. And the regulator Bush chose to oversee them - an old school buddy - pronounced the companies sound even as they headed toward insolvency.

I am not reality--but your last paragraph says what has been said many times without any Democrat accepting it.

My opinion?Both parties contributed to the bust due to unwillingness to do the right things
Bush had his war,Democrats caused Fannie and Freddie,then Obama spent more than this Country may be able to control,and Congress has not the guts to cut off the spending,nor to get rid of the special interests and lobbyists that pay to get Bills that do for the special interests only and not the interests of the people and the Country.

Why even reply to spam of slew.
The most ineffective spammer on topix.

She doesn't care what you think.

Polarization of two parties is her goal.

And shes so terrible at it.
You would think someone who devotes 7 days a week promoting partisanship would have some knowledge about human Psyche.....

But she doesn't...

Slew posts the same partisan bait year in and year out.

Her goal isn't progress of society.
Its to widen the partisan divide...

Further entrenching people in their respective political parties.

Slew posts not to provide solutions but merely to create more partisanship.

Dumb bitch knows nothing about human thought processes
