I didn't like Clinton either, in fact I quit the D. party during his first term and became an Independent.
Like I said the R. couldn't take enough credit for the housing boom in 2006, and in 2008 they were running away from it and that is just the truth.
That is the definition of truth. This is historical fact you can't go back and change dates, times, and events, the only thing you can do is lie, deny and blame others. That is exactly what your kind are attempting to do. But to your disdain we have fact checkers such as myself, who are going to make you eat your creation.
This article begs the question. Are all R. pathological liars or are they just plain stupid like oneblackcat88?
"Then his Treasury secretary, Henry Paulson Jr., told him that to stave off disaster, he would have to sign off on the biggest government bailout in history. Bush, according to several people in the room, paused for a single, stunned moment to take it all in.
"How," he wondered aloud, "did we get here?"
Eight years after arriving in Washington vowing to spread the dream of home ownership, Bush is leaving office, as he himself said recently, "faced with the prospect of a global meltdown" with roots in the housing sector he so ardently championed.
There are plenty of culprits, like lenders who peddled easy credit, consumers who took on mortgages they could not afford and Wall Street chieftains who loaded up on mortgage-backed securities without regard to the risk.
But the story of how the United States got here is partly one of Bush's own making, according to a review of his tenure that included interviews with dozens of current and former administration officials.
From his earliest days in office, Bush paired his belief that Americans do best when they own their own homes with his conviction that markets do best when left alone. Bush pushed hard to expand home ownership, especially among minority groups, an initiative that dovetailed with both his ambition to expand Republican appeal and the business interests of some of his biggest donors. But his housing policies and hands-off approach to regulation encouraged lax lending standards."
This following headlines from their article makes a lot of sense.
Google- "What in the World Is Happening With Oil? - Part 1: Iran's Superweapon"
Pretty much claims that the slowing of fracking won't be enough to soak up the oil glut, reason Iran has millions of barrels in storage, and they can produce over four million barrels a day once sanctions are lifted, combine that with the US, Russia, Iraq and the Saudis pumping flat out, anemic demand the Chinese stock market crash and the impending US stock market crash, and we have a recipe for even lower oil prices. So far I'm staying in the lower oil prices wagon, and if the western world doesn't stop this foolish austerity they are imposing on the victims of the gw BuSh depression you will see even worse economical reports in the future.
The following are US exports of Ng from 2009 -2014, and as more export facilities that have been licensed get finished the more Ng will be exported.

" Shale companies commonly hedge some of their production, locking in prices for which it can sell its product well ahead of time. That provides them with certainty and insulates them from huge price swings. Many companies secured high prices last year before the price crash.
Those positions are now starting to unwind. As they expire, small and medium sized shale companies will be more exposed to lower oil prices. For a company that had hedged a quarter or half of its oil production last year at $80 or $90 per barrel, they will now suddenly feel the pain of oil trading at $60 per barrel."
you might as well not have free speech if you don't know what you are talking about. Faux news as the example lie and form the message at will, and there minions parrot what ever they say as if it came from their God. Washington State Supreme Court upheld the right to lie as being free speech, when they rejected a suit against a politician who lied to get elected. What about the voters right, if you vote for someone because of what they claim they stand for, then after winning the election they don't do as promised, are not the voters victims of fraud?. Then you have the Supreme Court who gave Corporations person hood, a business entity is now a person.
So Idiot why are you continuing the thread by replying to it, a person who calls another a fool for doing the same thing is a fools fool. LOL
so jamesboy does the same thing that he puts others down for, too funny. but typical, if it wants to see a sociopath all it has to do is look in its mirror. . It also claims it knows history but has yet to offer what it believes.. Again the Con federate flag stands for slavery, sedition and LOSERS. Fly your flag where you want, but not on government property, only winners have that right. Maybe jamie thinks the south won and the commies rewrote the history books? Whatever all I know is jamie's real civil war history is a closely held secret. LOL
Rah, Rah, Loser it is you that don't have a clue if you don't know the civil war was fought over sedition, and sedition came from the issue over the south's instance on continuation of slavery, any deviation from those facts and it is you that is attempting to rewrite history. And Loser, if you want a tattoo of it or fly it on your vehicle or anywhere else on private property, that is up to you, but not on government property. It is absurd to insist that a flag that stands for the abuse of humans, and a lost war over sedition should still fly on government buildings.
Loser, I volunteered for three years service (63-69) in the US Army for that one,it means something to me. The Con flag is a different thing altogether, but I'm not surprised that you don't know the difference.
It stands for slavery, sedition and placing second in the war they started. if you want everyone to know you are a loser by all means display the CSF, but not on government property. After all the US government won that one.
World population exploding " Most of the world never has been able to afford oil, now we just have more that can't. Austerity equals slowing demand.
I'm thinking smart money is leaving the markets. Their selling drags everything down. The individual investor is nothing, hedge and sovereign funds rule.
