Let's get the TRUE story....Bush asked congress over six or seven times to regulate Fannie and Freddie because he said that they could ruin the economy should they fail...congress refused. Bush was not to blame for everything that happened. Remember this date....January 3, 2007....that is the date that the Democrats got majorities in both the House and Senate....so from January 2007 through December 31, 2010, the Democrats had a majority in both houses, four years. Barack, Barry Sorento, Obama or whoever he is, was a voting Senator during 2007 through 2008...the Democrats made this economical mess by spending like a drunken sailor. So if Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.
