Subprime Woes: You can thank the Democrats – repost

Filed under: Blogroll,economy,media,Politics — lullabyman @ 2:10 pm

While democrats have been trying to get political advantage from the current financial crisis the underlying facts belie their position. It was democrats, not republicans, that set the ball in motion and pushed it faster and faster until it crashed into wall street and shattered the market. A few videos to help describe how it happened:

That said, I don’t think anyone should make a vote punitive. Look what happened 2 years ago … the public sent the republican congressmen packing for purely punitive reasons and has the democrat congress done any better? Ask yourself, “am I better off than I was 2 years ago before they were in power?”

If you want results then make your vote constructive not punitive.  If you make it punitive though, make sure you know who’s really to blame.  This all started long before Bush, and democrat congressmen were as much or more to blame as republican congressmen.

  1. Holy posting spree, Whorled Man!

    Exactly. It’s too easy for Democrats to make this a political weapon just because of the Republican name-association with “big business.” Hopefully the general public is more careful than that. Probably not. Much more relevant than political affiliation are issues of power, class, and campaign contributions.
