Blessed Benefits

Had a political rant here that is probably better left unsaid... let's just leave it at I'm amused* at the many ways the right is flip-flopping now that President Obama is in the hot seat. Crying crocodile tears for those they recently vilified, and expecting overnight solutions to problems it took years to create. If you're given a prescription for antibiotics, if you take all 40 pills at once, you're going to get sicker, not better...

Here's Vanessa with a definite example of faded glory...

*by "amused," I mean "apalled."

Are there really no comments to this or did you just delete them?

Taking all 40 pills a once? Isn't that what Obama is doing? Well after all wasn't he the candidate for change?

You're right about one thing though, it did take many years for this (economic crisis) to happen. If you really want to know how far back just do a little research (Google) starting with Jimmy Carter's Community Reinvestment Act, the Glass-Steagall act which separated commercial banks from investment banks in 1933 in response to the great depression and was repealed by Bill Clinton in 1999. (And yes I know the Republicats were in control of congress at the time, but let's be consistent and give the POTUS full credit just like George got full credit even though the Democrats were in control of congress at the end of his term.)

Do a little research too on the roles played by Barney Frank, Maxine Waters, and other Democrats in all of this as they very clearly ignored warnings about Fannie Mae and Freddy Mack. Judging from their own words, their criteria for the success of Fannie Mae and Freddy Mack was how many "no money down" loans were given out. Didn't matter that the people these loans were given to couldn't qualify, or that they didn't have the income to make payments. And what's the fix for all the defaults? Why, let's have the government (taxpayers) make sure these people don't lose "their" homes! Excuse me, how is it your home when you didn't put any money down and didn't make your payments? Never mind about that. Never mind about the facts. Don't you know this is really a redistribution of wealth. Those "evil rich" people have too much and it's the government’s job to take it away from them and "spread it around." It's always a good thing when we can "spread it around." Right!?

Just do some research man. So you don't sound like an idiot totally oblivious to history.

Oh! And I'm amused too. Amused at how the left can, with a straight face, accuse others of what they are guilty of. And I'm appalled that the news media allows them to get away with it.

So how sure are you that you REALLY know what's going on?
