Poor old man...you just can't handle the truth!! Get out of fantasy land and enter the 21st century. The points above re the housing issue was a problem that BOTH sides of the party line contributed their share of stupidity and greed. Wall St fiasco was and remains at the hands of the Repubs and they control the financial purse strings that bought the Repub party into stalling legislation that would have helped the economy recover more quickly...open your eyes, gurly man!!
