    I nicked this from Oscar on rec.boats

    "Apparently, I'm supposed to be more angry about what Mitt Romney does
    with his money than what Barack Obama does with mine."

    Worked for it? Used his brain?
    Obama has fixed nothing at all, so why keep a 'leader' who can't lead?
    BO is a lair an fraud.
     
  4. Rearranged chronologically:

    #1-pushing fannie/freddy to make risky loans
    #2-killing the Glass-Steagall act

    The first made the second necessary, and the second by itself was the
    removal of a regulation that never existed for European banks.

    So as your side always does, you ignore #1 and point out that #2 was
    bi-partisan. Matt Damon and many other great documentarians have made a
    science of this.

    Of course if we didn't go along in a bi-partisan way, then we would be the
    Party of "No." If we do go along, we are equally guilty.

    But in this case everything depends on ignoring #1, and therefore pretending
    in a truly fantastic way that Fannie and Freddie's 4 trillion in debt came
    from nowhere, nor did it have any bearing on anything. So you can be said
    to have a fantastic point of view.
     
  5. So we can thank the new debt for our 2% growth then, and also for the
    interest on the debt, which happens to be 2% of GDP. What a boon.

    Shortly after George W. Bush was elected president, Congress and
    President Clinton were trying to pass a $384 billion omnibus spending
    bill, and while the debates swirled around the passage of this bill,
    Senator Phil Gramm clandestinely slipped a 262-page amendment into the
    omnibus appropriations bill titled: Commodity Futures Modernization Act.
    It is likely that few senators read this bill, if any.



    Selective memory, eh.


    Of course the senate voted for it, they did not know what they voted for.

    Complement hell. BO is doing the same things that W did and considerably
    more and worse (more bailouts/stimulus, more war, more entitlements [but
    for different recipients], much higher deficits, etc.,). This also isn't
    fixing the economy. Now he wants another term of doing far worse that his
    predecessor?

    ?-)
