A new low for libs on this board. Get yer head out of the sand. It's not even up for discussion that the liberal congress, with their affordable lending mandate and Freddie Mac, caused the lesser depression and that big O kept it rolling. Finally, if President's don't cause their own downturn, then we should blame Clinton for the downturn under Bush? What if a second democrat wins the WH next term, and we continue in this depression. Would you finally be willing to blame Obama? Nah, intellectual honesty's a tough pill for lefties to swallow.
