You don't strike me as a particularly well educated man, so I will need to explain this to you slowly. Under standard economic theory, when businesses and consumers stop spending money due to some economic calamity, it is then that the government should step in and run deficits and spend money in the private economy, in order to keep prices up and to keep job decline down. Bush on the other hand, pretty much did everything the opposite of sensible economic theory: tax cuts financed with borrowed money. Tax cuts vs raising taxes in war time. Deregulating the banking system, and appointing every fox he could find to be in charge of every regulatory hen-house in government. And then finally, running deficits instead of surpluses when the economy was booming with all that funny money. The results have been a disaster, and now you, like TNT, want to play pretend, that all these things never happened.
Tell me, do you have any facts on Barney Frank and the other right wing mythology? Or will I have to whip your ass with the facts again? The grasped-straw CRA program was a miniscule part in this, and you know it.
That being the case, why haven't the Dem's had an inquiry? You know damn well there would have been if there were any Republicans involved.
