You need to go back to the SENATE Testimony that I linked from Paulson that said as much. I think you only read what you want to see and miss the rest. A have provided link after link that shows that the Bush Administration has failed to REGULATE with the current regulations on the books. Note the link by the SEC Chair regarding the Madeoff scandal.

If you want to post up what I have said, do it correctly.

EDIT: Here are three of the links I have produced since October.

Who is going to determine all the bills introduced (not just passed) that have an effect on regulations?

Thus, the questions, deservedly, should go unanswered.
Nicely put.

The righties need to start to blame bushie for everything.

Once they get that story implanted in the voters mind the next step will be to say that bushie is gone, long live the next rightie.

problem solved.

Fine, skip the first question if it is to hard. Just do the rest of them.

Once again, you can't prove the negative. In order to prove that something didn't happen as the result of one person's neglect, you have to prove that only that person could have produced the effect that didn't happen.

As to your links, it would be so much easier to discuss BWOT posting history if you as good a memory of what others posted as you do about yours. Somehow when you want to refight an issue, you just can't seem to remember any valid points made by your opposition.

"To" hard? It's overbroad, unnecessary and irrelevant.

Where are the lefties when you need them to answer your questions? Reread post 37.

OK TOO HARD. Several of the answers are ONE WORD Skippy. As usual you hide and avoid and run from things that prove that YOUR party and YOUR Bushie failed. Let me help you through this hard exercise.
  1. At what point during the Republican Majority Congress and Republican White House was a BILL introduced to actually change regulations? 2002 SARBANES-OXLEY.
  2. Which Branch of Government is responsible for Enforcing REGULATIONS ON THE BOOKS? Administrative
  3. Which Branch of Government is responsible for Supervising GSEs? At present, three federal agencies are responsible for overseeing the major GSEs: The Farm Credit Administration (which supervises the Farm Credit System and the Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation (Farmer Mac)), the newly- created Federal Housing Finance Board (which oversees the Federal Home Loan Bank System), and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (which oversees the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac)).
  4. Which PARTY had MAJORITY in SENATE and HOUSE in Congress during ALL of those warnings? REPUBLICAN
  5. Has anyone EVER shown a filibuster by a single Democratic Senator that BLOCKED legislation to include any new Regulations? NO
  6. Did the REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT VETO any REPUBLICAN CONGRESS passed laws regarding any new Regulations? PRESIDENT BUSH only vetoed a single bill from Jan 20, 2001 to Jan 20, 2007 when the Republicans lost control of congress. That was HR810-Stem Cell Research.
  7. Other that providing a 10 minute sound bite what power did Barney Frank, in a MINORITY position have to stop ANY Regulation from being passed in CONGRESS? Frank or Dodd are not on record of threatening Filibuster or countering ANY legislation regarding the Financial Industry.

That took four minutes, including look up on the GREs.

How long have you posted here to still not know the posting schedules/habits of many of the folks on the left or right?

Sounds like you are getting wordy - all those adjectives add up to "too hard for me."

It was a characteristic of the previous administration you so admired - do a half assed job of everything and then mount a disinformation campaign to try to claim doing the job right was just beyond anyone's capability. You can shed that skin now if you want.
