climbing to dizzying new heights in idiocy ...

the 2 morons that played key roles in letting the financial crisis happen in the first place, are responsible for making sure it doesn't happen again.

(all that's left to be worked out is ... who to blame when THIS plan fcks up!)

It’s not as idiotic as you right-wingers wanting to put republicans back in power when it was on their watch that this nation went to crap.
Their failed policies will reverberate for generation; the Gulf oil disaster is testimony to that fact.

But at least we now have leadership in the White House that will regulate the Banks and financial institutions so that there won’t be another crisis like the one that happened during Bush’s failed presidency.

That's right. Next to Obama, President Bush looks like a genius. I always thought he was smart, certainly smarter then the Kenyan, but this current President is so far over his head it isn't even funny. It helps that his wife is intelligent, but he is as dubmb as a stone.

Agree.

Question is HOW do we fix it when the corrupt SOB's write their own rules and investigate themselves?

"All but a few brain-dead holdouts have begun to accept, the "blame Bush" mantra is no longer an effective response to every dark cloud, bringing heavy showers of incompetence, with occasional bouts of self-pity, to the Obama White House."

It will be interesting to see how fast the next Congress, and President will reverse the many anti American decisions made by the Kenyan President. That is what is so great about our form of Government, we can correct any mistakes we make in one election, in the very next election.

Come on man, I consider you one of the sensible right-wingers that post on here… at least be honest; Bush was a disaster. And whether you agree or disagree with President Obama; he is trying to clean up the mess that Bush left behind.
Furthermore you would have to concede that the Banks need to be regulated in order to prevent another meltdown like the one that just happened.

How about the restoration of the Glass-Stegal Act that protects savings with FDIC and keeps investments across the street.

• Obama Seeks $50B in Emergency Aid
President writes letter to Congress pleading for billions to save jobs, support economic recovery
• Obama Urges Congress to Pass 'Doc Fix'

All the moron would have to do it to make it where ANY NEW OR USED vehicle bought in 2010 and 2011 would get the interest on the loan as a tax deductable item off their federal taxes for the life of the loan.

THIS WOULD ADD JOBS IN MANY FACETS OF OUR ECONOMY

: Steal Industry
Rubber/Tires
Textiles/Seat Covers
Electronics
Copper
Batteries
Lights
Insurance
Shipping
Automobile Factories
Unions
Sales
Service
Parts
Dealerships
Banks to handle the loans

Basically 25% of the Economy…………………………use the 50 Billion for that instead of blow it like the trillion that has already produced nothing…………the formula has always been there, but if you can’t see the forest for the trees………….except on the golf course then it doesn’t matter anyway.

The real disaster is currently residing in the White House! LOL

Had Barney Frank and Chris Dodd done their job in the first place, their would be no need to revamp banking regulations. Adding additional laws doesn't make up for not enforcing the ones currently on the books. Congress is giving the problem lip service to appease their base. Lets see what damage will be done to the market.

I'm not saying the Bush administration was the best in history, he could have done much better. But Obama's administration is NO PICNIC either!
