pffffffffffft Rufus…...come now, dear chap…must we go over this again?
Ok, here goes….
The man leaning over the patient in the above cartoon was one of the main culprits responsible for the economy blowing up via his support of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the agitators at ACORN who literally harassed banks, via protests and legislation championed by Obama, into making risky subprime loans to people who could not afford their homes in the name of “affordable housing for all”. Nice in theory, disasterous in practice, like any socialist program.
If anything, Bush can be blamed for not stopping the attack, but his policies certainly cannot be characterized as the smoking gun. Sorry.
AJ: what?! wait a second.
It was bush and cronies that chanted Drill baby Drill.
It was paulson and Bush tat bailed out AIG and friends so they could get million dollar raises jets and an office party in Hawaii or wherever.. Obama inherited the mess and the cleanup of it. And the money he lent was to be paid back which much of it was from what I understand. Its just AIG that still is in it deep.
Its the offshoring thats killing business. Look at Pfizer. everything off to Ireland. no more rockland workers. Nice huh..
