You are right it will not get better for the American people until Obama and his friends are gone. BTW if they want to save money keep a tight leash on Michelle.

4.25% was greater than the Unemployment rate of 4.0% that Bush inherited from Bill Clinton, the Unemployment rate increased from the 4% when Bush came into the White House to 8% when he left in 2009, a increase of 100%

How many spending bill proposed by that Democrat Majority in the House did George Bush sign into law in 2007, or 2008?

You do understand the protocol and congressional procedures on how money is draw from the U.S Treasury I presume?

Which democrat Spending Bill proposal did Bush authorize in his last 2 years?

I assume you do know how to track legislative history for the House of Representatives for the 112th Congress, right?

I remember the two recessions. I remember the 4,000 Americans that died in Iraq because he wanted to get a leg up in the 2004 election. I remember he telling Americans the war would last a few weeks and that Iraq would pay for the costs in oil revenue. I remember him insisting they had WMDS. I remember him telling us the Hussein supported Al Quada and that he was involved with 9-11. I remember George Bush being the only president that endorsed torture of other human beings. I remember him appointing to the UN someone who thought the US should pull out of the UN. I remember George Bush and Katrina.

I remember Bush being the worst president in my lifetime, and I have been alive a long time.

NO they weren't, ya stupid bigot, banks were making billions of dollars selling and reselling loans, they did not give a damn if the loans were good or bad as long as they were making money on the commissions.

These loans were first made during the Clinton years. Bankers were encouraged to make loans to minorities even knowing they couldn't pay back.

Under Obama, a Record Decline in Government Jobs
By FLOYD NORRIS
When Barack Obama ran for president four years ago, he appalled some Democrats by saying Ronald Reagan had been a transformational president.
Three years into his presidency, he has exceeded Reagan in one area: reductions in government jobs.
Over all including a decline of 12,000 public sector jobs in the Labor Department report for December government employment is down 2.6 percent over the last three years, compared to a decline of 2.2 percent in the early Reagan years. That is a record.

The primary culprit supplying predatory mortgages to unqualified consumers and, then selling those securities for a profit in the after market were Mortgage Companies, not banks..... Mortgage Companies have never been regulated by the federal Government. Republicans have historically been against regulating Mortgage Companies. Don't you know the politics your representatives stand for in Washington? Just as they are currently against the Consumer Protection Agency.

Country Wide Mortgages, left unsupervised, was at the center of the 2006 mortgage debacle, they were never regulated by Federal regulators, nor was the Mortgage Brokers industry, subject to the CRA provisions that minors Banking activities to determine if banks were servicing consumers of a community where they planned to expand.

American Banks have to qualify to expand or open branches and the CRA monitors their activities specific to the consumers in the area identified for a Bank's expansion activity.

The day of taking deposits out of the minority community to lend to the majority community are long gone because of CRA.

Bush was no conservative, he tried to reach across the aisle and placate the democrat Marxist party. It got him the financial collapse and it got us the worst president in the history of this country. For that, I do blame Bush.

It's obvious you don't understand the policies that you're attempting to discuss and, or belittle.

You're repeating the nonsense delivered by the word smiths on the Conservative Stooge Network.

It's not your fault, but it's a telling sign that you weren't interested to do an objective search to locate the definition of the CRA and exactly the intent of the policy.

CRA is a policy that's been on the books more than 40 years, and it's basic GOP Opportunity to associate those policies with the financial debacle that grew and matured under the leadership of George Bush and the Republican Majority in the House and Senate for 6 years as they practiced "Look the other way Oversight" of America's Financial Industry. It's a ruse used by the Republicans to throw off the yoke of accountability for their neglect to enforce standing rules and policies.

George Bush appointed Franklin Raines.... or had you forgotten?

With solid Majorities in the House, Senate and having control of the White House, tell me more about how the democrats thwarted any proposal the Republicans sought to put in place for 6 years of Republican domination........ ROFLMAO

George never signed a proposal submitted by the Democrat Majority House from 2007 until he left in 2009.

Country wide was working closely with the Bush Administration to dismantle any regulations....... as they did with the Oil Industry who were allowed also to write America's Oil and Drilling policies and legislation....... leading right up to the BP disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.

Taking what deposits out of the minority community? You can't get something out of nothing. I notice you skip right over Fannie and Freddie. You remember them, don't you? The one where Obama's buddy Franklin Raines made off with a cool 7 million, while the housing industry and Fannie and Freddie crashed and burned, along with our economy.
