The democrats raised the ethanol mandate which set off a huge run on grain prices globally which in turn made beef and chicken go up in price. This also bankrupted at least one company, Pilgrims Pride (look it up, Gustafson) and damaged many other companies. The ethanol mandate and other feel-good Green subsidies created economic dislocation and inefficiencies.

Each thing the Dems did in 2007 and 2008 helped weaken the economy, an economy which was weak trying to digest the housing bubble bursting. taken together, the Democrats’ agenda was the ‘straw that broke the camels back’ that tipped us into Lehman bankrupcy and then unraveling of the financial markets.

Because Bush was President....you gullible political knowledge left brained sheep just followed the dem polticians of blame....so they could get your vote and on to high salaries, fringe benifits, new airplanes, etc. You fell for it...we didn't.

Clinton....lawyer who's license was given up before it was taken away...same for hillary...same for obama

Bush's, Romney, Reagan..all busniessmen...

You blew it.

Of course the dems are what Obama "brings" up
daily. they hope everyone is as ignornant and easily led as they are. No one is suppose to
question what he does. I assumed
they would wake up in 4yrs., but that was just too
much to ask . Is it any wonder why they don't
notice what a shape this country is in?

We got CHANGE from Obama. The Change from Cronie Capitolism to Cronie Socialism.
The tax slaves get screwed either way. And, the beat goes on.......
Billions? How many billions?

And why do Republicans care now about billions of dollars
wasted?
They didn't when Bush was president and he wasted a couple
trillion on his trumped-up Iraq war.

Oh, I forget. When Republicans squander trillions it's okay.
It's for the good of the country.

Really? After 5 years it's still GW's fault? I thought we gave Democrats the House, Senate and the Presidency to at least try to turn that around. They have done nothing but dig the hole even deeper.

This is stooge insanity....... ROFLMAO

Link or other wise list and identify (1) one bill the democrats proposed in the two years they held majority in the House that George Bush signed authorizing expenditures.......... ROFLMAO

America was not loosing jobs under Carter, Inflation was running unchecked under Carter, which was residue from the Nixon Fiscal Policies of price and wage restrictions and conversion from the gold standard......

You sure don't know much about American History to be so mouthy here on these forums... are you Mexican?

People as uninformed as you on historic political events in our nation, like you shouldn't be allowed to vote.....

Bush tried 4 times to head off the housiing crunch and regulate fannie/freddie.......blocked each time by Dodd/Frank.
Ameica was LOSING jobs under Carter, clown. That's why he was defeated..........we were losing defense, and certtainly our standing in the world due to that wimp Carter.

What good is the House Majority if the President doesn't sign their proposed bills?

Clinton proved that in running a surplus, in the budget which pass that brought in an era of Fiscal Responsibility to America, republicans to the man in the House of Representatives voted against Clinton's proposal. The measure passed on party line votes in the House.

Boehner, Cantor and a mess of lifetime Republican representatives in that Congress voted the other way, not for the responsible measures that saw one of only three surpluses in the history of American government.

Bull Chit........ Pilgrim Pride filed bankruptcy in Nov 2008, mostly because of the damage the Bush/Republicans did to the world economy and because as a result of that faltering economy Russia decreased it's poultry imports, by 300,000 metric tons causing Pilgrim Pride a economic catastrophe. Pilgrim's estimates fell by more than 45%, dragging down their stock price, which as of 2013 have rebounded from $0.65 in Bankruptcy to more than $8.00

Pilgrim went Bankrupt under the Bush regime, and found econmic restoration under the Obama Administration.
