The primary cause of the 2008 crisis was that the government forced banks to make housing loans to people who could not or never intended to repay them. The people who warned of the consequences were denounced by the Democrats pushing these programs. To expect government to fix a problem it created is pure folly. The government cannot and does not create prosperity or jobs, it only gets in the way. This is not to say that some regulation is not necessary. The problem is that the people making the regulations are either not very smart, or that they have selfish, ulterior motives.
"And yet public opinion shows pretty convincingly that Republicans were on the losing end politically of last year’s partial-government shutdown. " Thanks to the lying news media. Anyone with any sense knows that president "I will not negotiate" wanted the shutdown (17%...big shutdown).
Maybe they tried a rescue, maybe they didn't. Unfortunately, I cannot believe anything that comes from this administration/government any longer. This convenient news release is just that, too convenient.

"a still-popular president" You're kidding, right?
"We elected an anti-American. Twice. " "How many share my suspicion the President of the United States actually wants--and is carefully inciting--the social unraveling we are seeing?" Thank you. It is refreshing to see written what many of us believe to be true. I do not chalk up obama's disastrous presidency to incompetence...he is truly an enemy of our country.
"With president Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, race-baiters Al Sharpton, Sheila Jackson Lee, and an assortment of others constantly fanning the flames of hatred" I believe I would have put the "race-baiter" adjective immediately prior to the word "president".

I am all for giving the police the tools to do their job and to keep them safe, but much of the military gear they have been acquiring is very troubling. The missions of the military and the police are polar opposites, as anyone who has served in the military knows. I saw a picture of one police officer in Ferguson in full camo battle dress complete with a ka-bar knife...really? That's a bit much. When you give the police all this military equipment, there will always be someone who will find a way to use it.
obama would not even pass a basic security background for the military...and yet he is President and CIC.

And what does any of your post have to do with the concept of Jihad and the belief that those who will not convert must be killed?
"November should tell the tale. " You are correct there. However, it will say more about our country than it will about obama...I want to be optimistic, but based on the last six years, I am uncertain that we will like what we see.
