What's so unfair about blaming Obama? Wasn't he one of the Dims that took over both houses of Congress in January 2007? The recession began 11 months later (no coincidence). After Chris Dodd, Obama received the most money from Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac and allowed them to create havoc in the financial sector. Obama gave speeches favoring the bailouts and voted for them. Did he ever support cuts in taxes and spending? What's his argument -- that Bush is to blame because he was almost as bad as the Dims when he caved and went along with them? It was the GOP who called for auditing Fannie and Freddie. Who voted against TARP? Again, conservatives like DeMint, Bachmann, and Paul.
