As someone else said:<quoted text>
Look,when will you right whiners accept the blame of this recession? It was primarily G W Bush backed by the Republicans in Congress that fomented this recession.
All you read here is post after post from you morons "OMG OMG the unemployment" "OMG OMG the food stamps"
I have news. If we did not have the Bush recession,these things would not be where they are today.
Obama took office just as the effects were mounting up. It took nearly a year to stop the destruction.
Since he has gained back the jobs lost in his first year as he worked to stop the damage. Our economy is growing.
So really, I have a deal. You idiots quit blaming Obama for the effects of this recession and I won't have to keep reminding who who fomented it.
Face it. The right would love us to have a balanced budget. You would love for this country to be where it was in 2001.
But yet, you are too stupid to know who took us off that path.
The financial crisis was a perfect storm of liberal policy about subprime mortgages that went amuck with unscrupulous mortgage brokers, Congressmen like Barney Frank allowing us to believe everything was ok with Fannie Mae, and Wall St bundling credit default swaps that should have been monitored by the incompletent SEC. This coupled with unqualified pension fund managers trying to get something for nothing by purchasing these phoney mortgage bundles, etc. You can't leave out the American public who signed purchase agreements and mortgage loan documents that spelled out the risks very clearly but no one, at the time, cared to read the fine print.
To simply "blame Bush" is much too simplistic and naive.
