George W. Bush, once the golden boy of modern conservatism, has now been disowned by the entire Republican party, who are seemingly just as eager to disown the name of the party itself: The words "Bush" and "Republican" are hardly spoken together. Republicans do not take political responsibility for their economic policies. I say, if the Republican party was dog food, they'd take it off the shelves. The policies of the George W. Bush administration have gotten us into this mess - you can't walk away and say, "Oh, we had nothing to do with this".

What is, perhaps, most unrelentingly galling about their affected posture is that, even as they disown, disclaim and distance themselves from Bush's economic policies and promote McCain as some sort of saviour, they refuse to acknowledge that his proposals are just more of the same conservative überfail that got us into this morass in the first place.

But that is, of course, exactly what the Republicans are now trying to do. Bush is persona non grata. The ownership society? Never heard of it! Gee, it's a terrible situation we're in - how'd that happen? Well, never mind. Now is not the time to point fingers and lay blame! Let us tell you about a hot little commodity named John McCain.

So much for the Republican ownership society.
The hypocrisy of the personal Republican responsibility brigade brazenly, utterly refusing to take responsibility for the financial mess, and the irony of these great champions of the ownership society flatly refusing to own the economic policies which have resulted in massive losses among American families, would be positively hilarious if it all weren't so goddamned tragic.

George W. Bush and the Republican controlled Congress passed a law in 2004 that frothed the housing market with the American Dream Downpayment Act. Below, a liberal website? NO! http://www.heritage.org/Research/budget/wm378.cfm Here's a link discussing the concerns of the Heritage Foundation of the American Dream Downpayment Act; "Fiscally Irresponsible and Redundant to Existing Homeownership Programs." The link below explains how George W. Bush eagerly "Hosts Conference on Minority Homeownership." http://www.hud.gov/offices/cpd/affordablehousing/programs/home/addi/
