Yes you people who voted for republicans the last ten years, you cost this country dearly. You got the war in Iraq, over 5000 dead Americans, and well over 1 Trilliuon dollars, in debt, you got the financial deregulation, banks giving loans without information to people with no jobs and poor credit, and you gave us the bailout, you gave this country many many problems. I strongly recommend you become more informed before pulling the lever at the ballot box, your foolishness has cost our country enough!!!!!!!
The war was voted for by a huge bipartisan majority.
Clinton is the one who deregulated ('I think everyone deserves to own a house"), and started forcing banks to give bad loans. Bush tried to stop it 17 times. He was blocked by Democrats every time (including Senator Obama), so it blew up under Bush, and those same Democrats blamed him for it.
Bush did a tiny bailout compared to Obama's bailout also (not that either was the right thing to do).
Obama is the first president ever to get our credit downgraded too. It was downgraded because he refused to cut spending. And you call us the uninformed ones.
of course you forgot that bill clinton attacked iraq. He and the demolosers promoted iraq and weapons of mass destruction. You forgot the housing mess started under clinton. You forgot clinton himself blamed the democrats for economic mess. You forgot to check your facts before you exposed your stupidity.
this whole thread illustrates why 40% of the electorate no longer votes, they fear becoming one of the political-know-it-alls damned to swill in an ehdless unproductive argument that nobody ever wins. So tell everybody on the finance board exactly how this tripe makes anybody any money?
May be i forgot but i though the libs voted to go to war after Clinton bombed them for 4 years??? Ohhh yea i remember the libs did vote to go!!!!!!!! I seem to remember Lib Barney Frank and the houseing. He was in charge are had something to do with it.It's starting to come back. Let's see Fannie and Fredie are in great shape he said right before the bottom fell out.Barney allowed the loans to go to people that could not pay for them. Who was it that told the banks they had to honor these loans??Lets see? I know it must have been the rep because the libs have NEVER done ANYTHING WRONG!!Was that Bush that had all the automatic weapon kill all the people at Branch Dividian compound? Lets see i remember a litttle about it LOL LOL!!!!!!!!!
But Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with that and we killed the guy that kept Iran at bay.
Talk about stupidity, that was a major costly blunder if ever there was one. All under the
guidance of King George (mission accomplished as he strutted on that aircraft carrier deck)
What a joke he was and is. He set this country back at least one generation.
