I have shamelessly copied this from one of my favorite blogger!
When someone brings up the "fact" that Geo. W. Bush is to blame for the fiscal mess just quote this:
This from a Yahoo “green shoots” article commenter:
January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress:
At the time:
1. The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77
2. The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%
3. The Unemployment rate was 4.6%
4. George Bush’s Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB CREATION!
Remember the day...
1. January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.
2. The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy? BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!
3. Thank Congress for taking us from 13,000 DOW, 3.5 GDP and 4.6% Unemployment to this CRISIS by dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac fiasco’s! (BTW: Bushasked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in 2001, becauseit was financially risky for the U.S. economy, but no one was listening).
And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac? (Obama)
And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie???
(OBAMA and the Democratic Congress.)
So when someone tries to blame Bush...
REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007....
Then we have THIS!
This is sheer genius
In a bid to stem taxpayer losses for bad loans guaranteed by federal housing agencies Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac, Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn) proposed that borrowers be required to make a 5% down payment in order to qualify. His proposal was rejected 57-42 on a party-line vote because,as Senator Chris Dodd (D-Conn) explained,
"passage of such a requirement would restrict home ownership to only those who can afford it."
Wouldn't it be nice if more Americans knew the facts above? But, oh, well..............we can hope. And we can pray. And we can expect a miracle in November, because it'll have to be miracle as the media's doing everything in its power to collude with the White House and make sure people are on their side.
