If Democrat Chris Dodd didn't filibuster to stop George W. Bush's bill meant to kill the bad loans, we would be living in a much better world right now. Gubmint news doesn't want you to know about that.

IF it weren't for Clinton and Reno forcing bad loans, IF it weren't for Dodd, Frank, Waters and the rest of the democrats stopping Bush and his efforts of reigning in Freddie and Fannie, and IF Bush would have had the guts to veto any and all of the democrat spending measures during his last two years we wouldn't be anywhere close to where we are today. But then, IF bullfrogs had wings they would fly.

That is absolutely correct my good man. Bush tried to stop it and Chris Dodd filibustered the bill dead. Live with it. You are a product of Gubmint news. MSNBC-The Gubmint Station!

Yes the liberal morons once again screw the economy and dare to blame the conservatives. How disgusting. Even worse the conservatives try to help the FED and Banks knowing these criminal libtards will only continue to screw the working person. Apply for welfare and food stamps, crash the system so the libtards starve!

I'm shocked! You didn't say it was "Bush's fault!" LMAO

I've always felt you have a smidgen of intelligence, and as you know, Bush tried to get it under control and warn the country.

His attempt at regulation was blocked in the senate by Dodd/Frank.

"There is nothing wrong with Fannie/Freddie" Barney Frank.

Let's see how "bi-partisan" you can be.

There never was a bill submitted to "filibuster".

That's what I'm saying.

Reagan had secret alien technology developed at area 51.

Prove it wrong.
