Wow, we have gone from yellow to almost totally black since obama took over. Seems almost like he is intentionally avoiding legitimate job growth initiatives. Wonder what the plan is? It sure is not in the best interest of our constitutional republic, whatever it is.

Is he trying to back door us into Marxism? After all, his mommy, pappy and grand parents were Marxists. As they say, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree

"There's another reason for working inside the system. Dostoevski said that taking a new step is what people fear most. Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution"

Saul Alinsky...Obama's hero.

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Affirmative, The Liberal/Socialists/Progressive mind set of the Obama oppressers towards the Constitution and freedom of the is country...

I wonder why the map uses January '07 as the starting point. As we know, the recession began in December '07 and that when unemployment started to rise.

The democrats took control of both houses after the 2006 election. You know about the same time nancy pelosi let us all know that she would be "draining the swamp and have the most ethical congress ever." Bills are voted into law by congress, the legislative process, the President signs them into law. For all those that always put the blame on Bush, all you have to do is look at who was in congress voting for what has put us into the mess we are now in, Reid, Dodd, Obama, Pelosi, Frank, Rangel, et al.... Chris Dodd and Barney Frank are responsible for the Fannie May/Freddie Mac fiasco. Look at the corruption going on the 9th Congressional District. Marcy Kaptur has taken millions in earmarks (pork) and given it to her campaign donors who turned around and gave her back some of that money in the form of campaign contributions. That is money laundering. A private business owner would be jailed for that. I hold these corrupt politicians responsible but I really have to question the intelligence and integrity of anyone that would vote to reelect such an unethical group of pigs feeding and getting fat with power and wealth from the public trough. Sickening.

When democrats took control of congress...unemployment was at 4.6%...

Desiree, what specific bills did the Democrats craft after Jan 07 that led to the financial crises? The vast majority of bad loans were from the private sector

Go back and read my post.

Extra, Extra, Read all about it.........

From the story....

"In fact, Frank & Co. made matters worse by pushing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to take on greater risk. They wanted more loans to people who might not qualify for traditional bank financing. And, as The Wall Street Journal has pointed out, Frank “pressured regulators to ease up on their capital requirements — which now means taxpayers will have to make up that capital shortfall.”

Your government at work.

Pink Slip,

You stated,

"I wonder why the map uses January '07 as the starting point. As we know, the recession began in December '07 and that when unemployment started to rise."

Please answer how this is not also the fault of democrats that took over both houses of congress with the 2006 election. Please explain why the national unemployment rate is over 10%? Please explain why Nancy Pelosi has not yet drained the swamp!!!!!!

So Frank stopped reform back in 2003...who controlled congress in 2003? He had no real power to stop anything.

Pink Slip says the private sector was responsible for bad loans. The government led by Barney Frank and Chris Dodd caused the mess of Fannie and Freddie. Read what I posted, Yeesh!!!!!

Sensor, when will that swamp start draining???????

Yep - It's all the Democrats fault for not fixing everything the Republicans did.

Again, R. E. A .D!!!!!!!

I posted

"For all those that always put the blame on Bush, all you have to do is look at who was in congress voting for what has put us into the mess we are now in, Reid, Dodd, Obama, Pelosi, Frank, Rangel, et al.... "

The democrats are fixing nothing. Things are getting worse. 10% unemployment with democrats in charge. Wow, impressive.

To Pink's point - what did the Democrats do since 2006 to cause the unemployment?

" what did the Democrats do since 2006 to cause the unemployment?"

They got elected and took control of Congress in 2006.

Everyone knows that Socialists are bad for the economy. Just ask the former U.S.S.R if Socialism works.

Or, read this article http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=newsarchive&sid=aSKSoiNbnQY0

Alan Greenspan warned Congress in 2005 that Fannie and Freddy were going under. When Republicans were in control, they did not force a fix through.

Then Democrats took over in 2006 and just bellied up to the trough of Public Money.

In short, Republicans saw it coming and did nothing. Democrats took over, saw the crisis coming and did nothing.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

It should be said that even when the Democrats "took over", any legislation would have been subject to a presidential veto as the Bush administration was still in control of the WH until Jan 09.

Pink Slip

1) "As of December 2008, President George W. Bush had vetoed only 12 bills since taking office in January 2001. Only one Presidential veto occurred before Democrats took control of Congress in January 2007. This is the fewest Presidential vetoes of any modern President; in March 2006 Bush set a 200-year veto record. Source: US Senate."
http://uspolitics.about.com/od/electionissues/tp/Bush-Vetos.htm

2) IF the Democrat controlled Congress HAD come up with ANY bill and IF Bush had vetoed it, the DEMOCRAT MAJORITY CONTROLLED CONGRESS still could have passed the bill.
SInce you obviously have never read the Constitution, here is how that works.
"If the President vetoes the bill, a veto message is sent back to Congress. The message contains the President's objections to the bill. The two houses of Congress may decide to revote on the issue right away. Normally, it is known if enough members will vote to override the bill (two-thirds is needed). If such a majority exists, the revote is almost guaranteed. If no immediate revote is taken, the bill can be tabled for later vote or sent back to the committee to have further work done. If a vote is taken to override, and the vote fails, the bill dies."
http://www.usconstitution.net/consttop_law.html

So, since the Dems did not present ANY bill for Bush to sign, no bill for Bush to veto, and no bill to even discuss at all, your answer is total B.S. and more Democrat wishful thinking.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

Which means he vetoed 11 bills between 2007-2008. So the veto threat was very real. Realistically speaking, you're not going to spend a bunch of time and effort trying to regulate Wall St when you know the president will just veto your effort. And as you pointed out, it takes a TWO-THIRDS majority to override a veto. The Democrats were never close having that type of control. It's a little more than disingenuous to say the Democrats caused the financial meltdown, when they had only been "in control" for 11 months. Let's remember, the GOP was in control of all three branches of gov't from 2001-2007.

Pink Slip

I whish the Democrats had the same fear when they rammed through Obamacare.
Why bother making ANY bills if there is a threat that the president may veto them?

Once again, the lame excuse that "it's Bushs fault" that Democrats (and Republicans too) didn't have the backbone to even try to stop the meltdown.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

I'll give you credit for acknowledging that the GOP played a role in creating the financial culture that led to the meltdown. I agree--that why I said it's disingenuous to blame the Democrats. And I didn't say "it's Bush's fault". Although, he certainly had his role as well.

Pink Slip

According to your "logic", why did Congress bother to try and pass public financing of Stem Cell research on July 20, 2006?
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/07/19/AR200607...

Why would Congress "bother" to try and pass a law allowing public funding of stem cell research that Bush had ALREADY INDICATED HE WOULD VETO 5 years before the bill arrived at his desk?
http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/health/july-dec01/bushspeech_8-9.html

I guess you are saying that giving taxpayer money to Pfiser, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Eli Lilly and the other "BIG DRUG" manufacturers is more important than stopping a financial meltdown.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

I'd put more of the blame on Alan Greenspan, who insisted there wasn't a housing bubble. Typically, Congress will yield to the Fed Chairman in matters of the national economy. But Greenspan insisted, "no bubble"

Pink Slip

Desiree, can you name any laws that the Democrats introduced since they took over in 2007 that led to the financial crisis? Freddie Mac & Fannie Mae have been around for decades.

Pink Slip

ss passed has made this crisis worse- printing more money we don't have .

Tell me why unemployment is over 10%!!!!!! The democrats have been in control since 2007 and the Obama Administation has been in charge since January, 2009. When does it become the Obama economy?

The Fannie and Freddie mess is a big part of the economic crisis. Chris Dodd and Barney Frank shoulder the blame for that.

You didn't answer my question, Desiree
