And I am very sorry you chose to support a President who believed that we could just spend our way out of recession and spend our way out of debt. It is like telling Rosie to eat her way out of obesity or a drunk to drink his way out of alcoholism. He first chose NOT to react to the failing economy and when he finally did, he did too little, too late.

So, no Bushie did not cause the Hurricanes but he certainly facilitated this debacle with a complete failure to understand the problem and how to react to it. And that has been proven beyond EVERY doubt.
What about YOUR democRAT controlled Congress for the past years? Where the hell were they--and YOU--during this disruption?????????????????????????????

The President does NOT Raise or Lower taxes. That is the responsibility of
CONGRESS.
What a loser response! You amaze me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The very VERY sad part of this is that most could have been avoided if Regulations had just been enforced and companies had adhered to solid economic banking principles instead of the quest for ultimate profits and greed.
Oh, for God's sake! Get over yourself!!!!!!
