Sep 30, 2008 – Obama Sued Citibank Under CRA to Force it to Make Bad Loans -..... the federal government and the Democratic Leadership, Citi chose to settle the case.... In September 1992, the Chicago Tribune described the group's

That's right. Obama himself helped start the mortgage crisis. Democrats should be ashamed of themselves.

Much like like the rest of the countries woes, it is indeed Cheney, er, Bushes fault...

President Bush advocated the "Ownership society." According to a New York Times article published in 2008, "he pushed hard to expand home ownership, especially among minorities, an initiative that dovetailed with his ambition to expand the Republican tent — and with the business interests of some of his biggest donors. But his housing policies and hands-off approach to regulation encouraged lax lending standards." .
There appears to be ample evidence that the Bush administration recognized both the risk of subprimes, and specifically the risks posed by the GSE's who had an implicit guarantee of government backing.

Barack Obama made a whole bunch of promises when he ran for president.

And now, we see a laundry list of broken promises that have left middle-class Americans worse off under President Obama.

23 million people are struggling to find work.

Nearly one in six Americans is living in poverty.

And half of recent college graduates can't find work to fit their skills, or any work at all.

This isn't the hope and change anyone voted for.

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan's plan for a stronger middle class means more jobs, more take-home pay and better opportunities

Obama kills baby's and allows illegals to roam our country freely...Romney won't

Just in case anyone is interested in the proposals being put forth be the parties I've provided a links to the party platforms (the article did not). Please note that the candidate's proposals on thier websites and that they hint to in the media may not be exactly what is stated in the platform.

link to the Republican party platform (national)

link to the Democratic party platform, 2012

Those of you that wish to think for yourself may want to consider Thomas Jefferson's words "Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories."
Be sure to consider Bernay's assertion "... The voice of the people expresses the mind of the people, and that mind is made up for it by the group leaders in whom it believes and by those persons who understand the manipulation of public opinion. It is composed of inherited prejudices and symbols and cliches and verbal formulas supplied to them by the leaders."
