    Damn the torpedos, full steam ahead regards...

    Bush wasn't guilty of the financial deregulation that happened in the '90s. Both parties are complicit in that travesty. So are a few people that are close to Obama.

    But as I understand it, Bush called attention to the problems with Freddie and Fannie only to be told to butt up a rope by Franks and his compadres.

    What happened to the righties for "less government control?" The republicans are for deregulation aren't they, unless of course it suits their needs for more government control.

    Less government control would have been no requirements by Freddie and Fannie forcing lending institutions to make loans they shouldn't have in the first place.

    I consider myself fiscally conservative and socially somewhat libertarian. Oftentimes the Republicans talk about the ideals that I believe in, but very rarely deliver. Why? Because individual and party power are more important to 90% of them than anything else. Same applies to the other side.
    Here's something to think about. Reagan's illegal immigration policies are a huge part of why we have the issues we have with illegal immigration. Slick Willy signed probably the most effective pieces of welfare reform legislation ever. My point is that people on either side do good things and bad things and nothing positive is going to happen as long as we pigeonhole people and treat our political system as if it were a football game. When "my side" had control, the country was headed in the wrong direction. When "thier side" won, it kept going, only faster. If you stop listening to other people who tell you how to think and really look at what's going on, you will see that there is lots of difference between what the Repubs and the Dems SAY, but very little difference in what they actually DO.

    That right there is probably the truest thing ever written in POTUS place!
