The fact of the matter is the one individual who has the most power to influence the economy is NOT THE PRESIDENT! It is the Federal Reserve Chairman. I blame Greenspan and Bernacke for getting us in this mess.
I agree ! The elephant in the room is Both Greenspan and Ben have the right of return. I do not believe their primary allegiance is to America. I also found it difficult to believe Michael Chertoff , also with the right of return was chosen to head DHS. It is very difficult to deny that 2+2 does in fact = 4 . Additionally do not dare pull the Anti-Sem Card. my wife is Jewish.

Greenspan is a perfect example of what is wrong with conservatism. He is a lifelong devotee of Ayn Rand and all of his policies reflect that ideology. The man saw the problems coming and chose to ignore them so that those with the money kept making money. But the economy at that point needed the housing bubble to stay afloat because it was the only thing producing new jobs consistently.
