Obongol's "catch and release" program is just another example of what he will do for the hispanic vote. What a clown. A disgrace to this great country. Even Dems have to be asking WTF?

And the only thing you left off of your last sentence after the comma (was that Freudian?) was " begun by the Clinton administration."
Looking forward to your spin on this regards,
The deregulation was not started by Clinton. It was started by Reagan. Some of what was done then made sense. However, the excesses implemented then directly caused the collapse of the S&L industry and a tax payer financed bankruptcy of pension plans to feed investment speculation. Clinton added to the problem and Bush shoved it into high gear.
The problem with "deregulation" is that it becomes the same type of ideology as tax cuts. Any rational person understands that both policies are finite. Unfortunately, it all sounds so ideologically pure that real logic goes out the window. The Bush collapse should have been a wake up call for both parties. The Democrats haven't taken it far enough, and the Republicans want to use the collapse as an excuse for making things even worse.
EDIT: The rate of increase in Federal government expenditures more than doubled under Bush as compared with Clinton, In addition, Federal revenues grew under Clinton and shrank under Bush, whichis why we see a constant reduction in deficits under Clinton followed by dramatic increases under Bush.
As for Clinton, all I'll say is that the "Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac" floodgates were opened....and Osama bin Laden was allowed to escape. We don't need to use too much imagination to figure out how these two ditties affect us still today...
