    That's right. Dems controlled both houses and drove us straight into the ground. Bush was complicit as well but it was democratic policies and spending bills that got us here.

    I will accept that Bush spent like a fool but I bet you all will excuse the democratic congress.

    W was a stupid piece of shit and along with the right wingers, taking the biggest surplus in US history, to the biggest deficit. It takes some real idiots to pull that one off, and those idiots are the GOP.

    The so called surplus was a paper numbers gimmick. Debt is debt

    List the bills Democrats authored and Bush signed that drove us straight into the ground.

    Otherwise, your post is sheer bullshit, whining and a childish temper tantrum.

    Democrats AND republicans got us into this mess.
    And further more many of us were pleased as the house of cards was built up.
    Homeowners were happy that their home value was increasing at an unbelievable rate.
    Finiancial institutions were happy that they could sell junk mortgage packages for good money and have them rated AAA by S&P and Moodys.

    And many/most of us kept re-electing those responsible for this mess.

    The roots of this problem started back under Reagan or slightly before.
    Didn't the finiancial dereg start under Carter?
    And every administration since has deregged it further.

    When Reagan took office the debt was something like 600 billion.

    Wrong again, Gramps.

    Democrats controlled Congress for just 11 months before the December 2007 recession began.

    It took years to get into this ‘mess,’ and it can’t be ‘fixed’ in just short of four.

    One might make the argument that GWB wasn’t solely responsible, that the actions of previous administrations and Congresses contributed to the recession, but it’s a fact Obama and the democrats weren’t the cause of it.
