Of course, the people that think Bush is evil will still see him that way even though he isn't, much the same way Obama fans think he's a knight in shining armour even though he isn't.
Truth doesn't always matter to some people.
Are you nuts???
All of a sudden in this ONE circumstance BUSH became a LIBERAL?
BUSH further deregulated electricity, military supply, insurance companies, public works , nuclear standards, pollution standards, lead in water standards......
ALL of a sudden BUSH said WAIT - I think I will regulate the mortgage and financial industry while we are in the middle of a boom...
GOD you guys are way past funny....\
...You are moving toward disaster, until and unless, all the welfare state conceptions have been reversed and rejected...It is precisely these trends which are bringing the world to disaster, because we are now moving towards complete collectivism, or socialism- a system under which everybody is enslaved to everybody...
...I am for the separation of State and Economics...
...it sprang up from the same source as the abuses, if by abuses you mean the legislation which originally had been established to help industries, which was already a breach of free enterprise...
...capitalists with government help are the worst of all economic phenomena...
...You know that both parties today are for socialism in effect...for control...
...all depressions are caused by government interference and the cure is always offered- so far- to take more of the poison that caused the disaster...

The video clip that was not allowed in the USA!
This video shows that Bush tried to warn Congress starting in 2001 that this economic crisis was coming, if something was not done. But congress refused to listen, along with Barney Franks.

I think most of us here know Barney Frank is corrupt there is no surprises there. But so are most of those fools. They ALL need to be tried for treason and hanged.

Well said! The incompetance of both houses and both parties are at fault here and to blame the figure head who was there for the short time he was, in comparison to the decades of some in our congress, seems to be ignored by the masses. I'm realy interested to see who gets the blame when our total collapse happens under the 'NEW and IMPROVED' government we have just had thrust upon us!
