Averted a great depression.....our market crashed in 08. If we look back to the last great depression times were not that bad in 31......but we know how that ended. In 1931 we heard the same tired cry from the same tired Aristocracy.....we saved you from the evil you cant see

As Dr.Phil would say - Hows that working for you ?

You want a reference of when a great depression was stopped, look at 1920-21. Depression started and ended within 16 months. Harding did nothing, let the failures go bankrupt.

How quick Republicans forget that Bush was president when the bank bailouts were granted and that he praised Congress for passing it.

Yes, Bush initiated TARP and the Main-Stream-Media gave Obama high marks for returning to Wahington DC to call for "urgency" in passing it.

The long and short of is that Obama and Bush are playing for the same team and it is not the American team; but rather the GLOBALIST TEAM!

TARP and the bailouts were just plain wrong. If a Great Depression is needed, then let it come! Living beyond our means will only bring a Greater Depression later. I would rather suffer now than my Grandchildren later. Socialism sucks! Class Warfare sucks! Obama sucks!

The Bankers, Financiers and Politicians that created this scheme needed to Fail. Instead, Sen. & Pres. Obama, Bush, Dodd, Frank, Reid, Pelosi, McCain rewarded them with Bail Outs that translated into record Bonuses courtesy of Tim Geithner.

There's still several Trillion in TOXIC ASSETS or worthless paper that the Obama admin is not telling you about. The Fed keeps buying more which Socializes the Losses to the Tax Payer again.

These politicians need to be indicted, not just thrown out.

With the biggest Financial Fraud in History, WHY aren't we seeing anyone hauled away in hand cuffs?

Why is the Obama admin protecting the money men? Including Tim Geithner and Larry Summers?

Selling bad times to people is not an easy thing. But these political cockroaches kept the same bull going for years paying off their special interests and making the problem worse. When history is written, I hope and pray that most of these people will be taken to justice. It is just amazing that they are still in power and act innocent of any wrong doing. Turning people poor has a rotten effect on things. America has many levels of wealth and many levels of overlap. they have been slowly dissolved over the years and there are still levels existing. This is going to end bad if we do not eliminate the massive corruption and the payouts that contribute to it.

Bush is not running for office. Perhaps you forgot. The folks who voted for it, both GOP and Dems that are still in office, are the only ones we can hold accountable.
