I'm an Independent and I'm starting to really like the Tea Party. While I've never been married to one party or the other, I never have and never will vote for a Progressive. But here in Ct., we've got two progressives running, one with a D and one with an R. So I'm happy that they're weeding out the RINO's and hopefully, we'll see a re-emergence of my favorite candidates, moderate Dems. This country's best periods have been with a balance of the two parties, keeping each other in check.
Amen!

You have yet to post anything I didn't know, and I've repeatedly criticized Dems AND Repubs for the current mess, although Wall St. was most of all to blame for it.
Dragging around the ball-and-chain of partisan politics as you do, you can't see that and must insist that I'm a "Dem" who supports everything that any Dem has ever done, including unquesitoning support of Obama and Clinton. Trouble is, these delusions of yours are ENTIRELY FALSE. They're just the excuse you use for endless cut n' pastes of supposed "refutations" which I by-and-large tend to AGREE with.
Naturally, you prefer to slant this all toward the Dems, because as noted you're a partisan stupid-head; but even you can't hide the fact that both parties AND Wall St. are to blame.
Please stop crowing about how smart you are and celebrating a victory you aren't even winning. I say this for your sake, of course, since I'm laughing my ass off at YOU.
LOL!:)
As long as you're learning something from these lessons, I'm fine with you having a good time.

Keep in mind that You have consistently supported the Dem/Obama policies and have exposed yourself as a 'bot' by your deranged responses to any criticism of lord Obama.

There's a simple truth here that Independents know and it's that ONE PARTY RULE is big trouble and when the One Party Runs the WORST CONGRESS IN US History next to one of the Worst Toutus in US History, it's a National Disaster.

Not going to wade through ALL of your baloney, it's a waste of time. But while it's true that Dems didn't reform Fannie and Freddie pre-recession, neither did Repubs do anything much about it pre-2007 when THEy were in the majority. Why not? What about their "oversight responsibilities" THEN, huh?
Oh, and PLEASE stop this "Dems took over and there was a recession" nonsense. NO ONE with a brain buys this partisan crapola.

Democrats Were Wrong on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

By Michael Barone
Posted: October 6, 2008

Seventeen (17). That's how many times, according to this White House statement (hat tip Gateway Pundit), that the Bush administration has called for tighter regulation of the government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Congress has cooperated only once. In spring 2007, as House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank likes to point out, the House did pass a bill in response.

The Senate did not act until 2008; Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd spent most of 2007 camped out in Iowa running for president.

The legislation passed by Congress in 2008 enabled Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson to put Fannie and Freddie into federal conservatorship this summer when they failed. But it didn't prevent them from spewing a huge amount of toxic waste, in the form of subprime and Alt-A mortgages, into our financial institutions from 2004 to 2007.

As Stephen Spruiell points out in The Corner on National Review Online, Fannie and Freddie spewed out $1 trillion worth (face value) of subprime mortgages between 2005 and 2007.

That's a whole lot of toxic waste. For more detail, consult the items referred to in my previous blogpost on this subject (most of the comments seem to have been disputes about the plot line of the movie It's a Wonderful Life, which I should think could be settled by consulting a reference work).

Much if not all of that could have been prevented by a bill cosponsored by John McCain and supported by all the Republicans and opposed by all the Democrats in the Senate Banking Committee in 2005. That bill, which the Democrats stopped from passing, would have prohibited the GSEs from speculating on the mortgage-based securities they packaged.

The GSEs' mission allegedly justifying their quasi-governmental status was to package or securitize such mortgages, but the lion's share of their profits—which determined top executives' bonuses—came from speculation.

Hoyer’s audacity

By Rick Manning
09/23/10

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) released a missive today attacking the Republican agenda with assertions that would make carnival barkers blush — digging at Republicans for, get this, not supporting small businesses and opposing paperwork-reduction measures. Combined with the standard outsourcing-of-jobs claim, Hoyer’s tired act is running thin across America.

For anyone not paying attention, here is the Pelosi/Hoyer/Reid record since they came to power in January 2007:

· The unemployment rate has gone from 4.6 percent in January 2007 to 9.6 percent in August 2010.

· More people are unemployed, with the numbers more than doubling, from 7 million in January 2007 to 14.9 million in August 2010.

· The federal budget deficit has exploded from what was an embarrassing $163 billion at the close of fiscal 2007 to an estimated $1.46 TRILLION for the fiscal year about to close on Sept. 30 — an increase of nine times.

· New monthly bankruptcies have risen from 57,240 in January 2007 to 127,028 in August 2010.

· Our national debt has ballooned from just over $9 trillion at the end of fiscal 2007 to almost $13.5 trillion in less than three years.

The Hoyer leadership record has wrecked the economy, and with it people’s lives. With more than twice as many unemployed for a much longer time, and a spending splurge that would make Paris Hilton gasp, now Hoyer has the audacity to call out Republican plans to restore fiscal sanity to our federal government.

Steny, who famously called himself a “tax, tax, spend, spend Democrat,” attacks Republican opposition to a targeted small-business lending program that plunges America further into debt while doing nothing to solve the underlying economic problems of the nation.

It is Hoyer and his cohorts on the Democratic side of the aisle who raised corporate taxes this past summer even though U.S. corporations already pay the second highest tax rate in the world. No wonder jobs are being exported; Uncle Sam’s hand is so deep in U.S. corporations’ pockets that the only logical choice is to export jobs. The right answer is for the U.S. corporate tax rate to be lowered across the board to make it profitable to create jobs here in the U.S. However, Steny would rather bloviate against the job creators in our nation than create an economic environment that puts Americans back to work.

Even more outrageously, Hoyer claimed to want to reduce the paperwork burden on small businesses. Small-business groups have begged Congress to fix the ObamaCare legislation that will require every small business to send 1099 forms to any business that they have either purchased or sold more than $600 worth of products or services to over the course of a year. Hoyer supported this requirement, which will create a blizzard of tens of millions of forms flying between businesses and into the IRS. Yet Hoyer claims to want to lower the paperwork burden?

<quoted text>Hate to be the bearer of bad news...but if you wanted to vote Democrat in the last election...you should have voted McCain. Shows you are just a gulible voter that vote party lines and don't actually do any homework on the candidates. You got duped thinking Obama was a democrat. Next election stay home until you know your candidate and what he or she stands for.
Sorry, but that's just silly. McCain isn't a very Conservative Republican in many ways, of course, but to think he's more of a Democrat than Obama is absurd.

If this is all the two parties can come up with in the way of candidates, though, I may vote Green or some other third party exclusively in future. Why throw away a vote on a bad candidate because they're mainstream?

Let's keep it short.

You have nothing to "teach" me.

I've supported some OBama policies and opposed others. The only "bot" here is you, since you interpret everything I say as "support" for Obama policies.

There is no "one party rule" in America. Wasn't true in 2001, isn't true now.

No idea what a "Toutus" is, something you wear at home in front of your bedroom mirror? If I'm correct, please don't tell me...:)

Since I wasn't arguing whether or not reform didn't happen and acknowledged Dems DIDN'T reform Fannie and Freddie, your "point" here is hard to see. Your use of AEI Fellow Barone in lieu of "discredited" [sic] Wikipedia is laughable, too.

LOL!!! Idiot boy, the Glass-Steagall Act was signed into law by FDR in 1933. It mostly prohibited bank holding companies from owning other financial holding companies.

It was REPEALED by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999, which was created and passed by Republicans, principally Phil Gramm (R-Texas). THAT act was indeed signed by Clinton, one of many mistakes Billy Boy made during his Presidency.

And in response to your foolish question:

"Didn't (D) Bill Clinton sign a certain piece of legislation in 2000 that allowed Derivatives to exist?"

..the answer is "no, dumbass, that's not what it did." Futures, for example, are a kind of deriviative that have been traded for CENTURIES.

Your false and slanderous claim that I "lied" about this is therefore disproven. You may apologize at your leisure.

ALL of those things are as a result of the fact that Bush left office before the recession, which struck during the last months of his Residency, had reached its low point. Obviously had it happened in his FIRST term and had he won another, it would all have happened to him rather than to Obama. To blame Obama for inheriting a recession he didn't cause but had to cope with is the slimiest form of dishonesty.

Bush, Jr. is IMO the worst President in modern history. Your opinion of Obama, of course, is pure partisan poop.

You mean bush told his cronies in the labor department to report that unemployment was unbelievably low. If they didn't report a low poverty rate they would be fired. bush ordered his wars for oil be kept off the books removing 2 trillion from the gigantic deficits he created.

No, you are again just believing the wildest lies bush could dream up.
