    Going very much against the media meme that the current financial crisis is all George W. Bush and the Republicans' fault, Bill Clinton on Thursday told ABC's Chris Cuomo that Democrats for years have been "resisting any efforts by Republicans in the Congress or by me when I was President to put some standards and tighten up a little on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac" (video available here, relevant section at 2:45).

    Now is anyone surprised that republicans were so outraged by Nancy Pelosi's partisan finger pointing speech today prior to the vote?

    Too bad trickle down was first used on the national level by a Republican. Aww too bad for your theory. FYI, just cause Bill Clinton says it does not mean it is right.

    Hard to argue with reality - it is their fault. Have to wonder why Clinton would actually tell the truth during an election year though. Of course if Obama loses and McCain dies in office -it leaves 2012 as another "wonderful" opportunity for Hillary to try and inflict herself on the nation again, doesn't it?

    Given the present economy, she would do better with McCain staying in office

    Well, ignore the fact that Bill Clinton was actually President for 8 years. Still deny it--put the ear plugs in--whatever you do--do not watch the video of his comments.

    It may permanently make your eyes cross.

    Aha, more name calling. What am I in denial about? I must once again force you name callers to give your biased opinion so I could discredit them with fact. It is getting kinda old.

    Hillary has a very good chance in 2012. Obama is set up to be a repeat of President Herbert Hoover. There is no chance a community organizer is going to solve an economic crisis of greater proportion. (US>some neighborhood in Chicago).

    It is a fact--that Bill Clinton said this. If it hurt your feelings--tough!

    As was Reagan, who had the backing of both parties, with a senate maority. As did Bush will a Congressional majority for, correctme if I am wrong, 6 years.
