During Bush's first term is when the biggest damage was done. Lot of his laws are not up till this year. Troops in Iraq had a deadline also. Dec. 2010. And which is why Obama's healthcare cannot go into affect till 2014--we are still on Bush's policies which expire this year. Basically Bush in 2002 relaxed a lot of restrictions which caused business to price gouge the people in interest and fees. Like I asked my healthcare provider last year--why are my premiums going up and you are paying less and they said cause they are able to increase premiums without restrictions. The home business was the biggest fraud made to the people ever during Bush term --next car companies wanted to cash in before he left office. Democrats and Obama took over and said if bail you out we are going to send our own people to monitor the business and we are to be paid back with interest. And they were. It was not free money.<quoted text>Which political party was in control of both houses of government when the economy went south? By 2006, George Bush couldn't do anything without the approval of Nancy Lugosi and Pinky Reid. They were the ones who started spending us into oblivion and who turned a blind eye to the housing bubble. The democrats HAD to win the White House in 2008 or right now there would still be some democrat politicians serving time in jail. Obama gave them cover and the media turned a blind eye to the corruption.
Republicans only went after Pelosi with a hate campaign because she dare question Bush about Iraq and they felt he was the president you do as he says. Pelosi was furious about Iraq and the fact there was no proof. American citizens were attacked by a foreign country and Bush sent troops on the ground to the wrong country and the wrong leader with lies. Pelsoi is there to represent her people who voted in office not be anyones yes person like a robot. Of course you also have republican jockeying for position as Boehner wanted her job and it was his dream to be Speaker and he started a hate campaign.
It was Bush and Cheney the people wanted arrested for war crimes. When they left office the polls were down to 16 percent in favor of Bush and now you want to pretend and lie and blame democrats. Bush is the first president in history to go down as the most hated president ever in the history of this country and you want to lie about it. Even your lies do not change history and facts. Lies about facts are so wrong simply because we are the people we are the ones affected by what laws are passed and you want to fight about democrats or republicans. That is a ruse to keep you busy hating a party and your own fellow American by not checking on every legislature passed by both parties.
