Did Republicans deliberately crash the US economy?
Did the republicans fuck up the housing sector and the banking industry?
Big time, and idiots still support them.

Conservatives want to "starve the beast"...
Actually, defense is the beast that should be starved - not social programs.
I think it's more they deregulated the banking industry and completely gangfucked the economy in order to line their pockets and piss on the little people. The destruction of the economy was more an unforeseen consequence of their greed. And as evil as the Republicans are the Democrats deserve blame for being their willing prison bitch through much of the GWB administration and not being tough enough during the Obama Administration.
What really annoys me about the right wing of this country aside from their unbelievable ignorance is there's a whole litany of things to nail Obama and the Democrats on but they choose utterly the most retarded arguments and things to bitch about.
It wouldn't be the first time.....

No bias there.
The Reps crashed the economy on purpose?
Good Lord. What a load of bs. The economy was crashed through the combined efforts of the Clowns in congress. Both parties.
The Clowns we elect to represent we the people. The Clowns who voted themselves some pretty nice perks at the expense of we the people.
The Clowns who really could care less about we the people as proven by the lack of spending cuts.
The Clowns who think money grows on a tree and will always be there for them to spend, spend and then spend some more.
The Clowns who that budget is just a word.
If you want to blame anyone for the meltdown then blame the appropriate people. The Congress full of Clowns who hold the nations pursestrings. Both parties.
