    Meh. He had majorities in Congress at that time. They legislated themselves out of jobs in 2006.

    Good riddance.

    The powerful forces even though the republicans had a majority did not have enough to bust a threaten democratic fillabuster. Oh and 2003 wasn't the only time he said something he did it for all of his 8 years.

    Bush will be remembered more like Harry Truman.
    Obama will be remembered like Jimmy Carter. Unfavorably.

    They didn't evey put up a fight. They damaged the brand, and Bush presided over that.

    Seriously.

    Exactly how did Freddie and Fannie get us into this financial mess? They back up loans brought to them by banks and of late, agents of financial companies.

    This is no surprise to me. Bush was a lone voice over Fanny and Freddie... and much more. I don't credit Bush for much but, on this, he listened to the right people - Economists - who were warning about the state of the financial industry, ballooning personal debt through stupid lending policies and really stupid Americans borrowing more than they could afford. On Fanny and Freddie, both Republicans and Democrats fucked us over. A bipartisan effort. One of the very, very few who actually tried to do something BEFORE the shit hit the fan was George W Bush.

    When the government says it will back any loans made by Freddy or fanny and Freddy and fanny makes loans to people who cannot or will not repay the loan and when you have enough of those types of loans. PLEASE PUT 2 AND 2 TOGETHER.

    Agreed I am not saying the repuyblicans aren't at fault but afterall Freddy and Fanny are democrats pet projects and the CRA which is another democratic thing did most of the damage.
