Will someone please tell me exactly what Bush 2 did that caused the credit crisis? I grant that starting two wars (of which Gore/Kerry would have started at least 1) causes some depletion of the treasury and a "war" tax should have been created to pay for it. The Medicare drug bill was another fiasco that hurt the country and could have caused a standard recession. Tax receipts that were $2.0 trillion in 2000 were $2.5 trillion in 2008 so don't blame the tax rate reductions. None of that explains the credit crisis and the mess we are in now. So, again, please tell me what Bush 2 did that caused the housing bubble and subsequent collapse?
