Obama loves to say that we shouldn't "return to the failed policies of the past". While he never explains what that's supposed to mean, you'd assume he means that Bush's policies led to the financial crisis.
Again and again, Repubs refuse to point out that it was Democratic policies like the Community Reinvestment Act and the Clinton era push on Fannie and Freddie to back bad mortgages that got us into this mess. The evidence is there. Sources like the NYT and NPR have all the articles in their archives; they just don't raise the issue. And the lie continues.
When are the Repubs going to get some backbone and go after these fools who are ruining the greatest country on the face of the earth?
