    I was sittin' on the toilet and I concluded that the housing crisis, the bank crisis, the economic crisis, failing school's, massive deficits and Iraq are not Bush's fault, nor for that matter are they the fault of anyone in the administration.

    Responsibility for those things lie with the American people. Not all of them, mind you, only about 50 million people.

    They aren't my fault because I didn't vote for Bush.

    But they are the fault of people who voted for him, and ESPECIALLY the fault of people who were stupid and ignorant enough to vote for him twice.

    We constantly hear about demanding our politicians take responsibility for their actions. Well, maybe it's time that "We the people" take responsibility for our votes.

    So true, but they won't take responsibility. Hell, they won't even admit that they voted for him when they KNOW they did (umm Ninja perhaps)

    It never even came close to crossing my mind to vote for that monkey

    Wow! That's some serious "potty pondering"!

    Deregulation gave birth to the financial mess we find ourselves in... and Bush had his role in that. But, spread the blame around.

    Blame it on greedy lending institutions that gave a mortgage loan on a $500k house to a guy making $12/hr.

    Blame it on the guy making $12/hr. who bought a $500k house with no idea how he'd pay for it.

    No market (purchasers); no product (loans).

    We see the kind of people responsible for the existence of a party like Bush is involved with here on this board every day.

    These people are

    1. not very bright about issues involving the social sciences

    2. Angry about having to pay taxes and convinced they're entirely self made men

    3. Shameless liars who take their idiotic talking points from hate mongers.

    this is not Bush's fault? lol! maybe if our tax dollars went to more useful things like education instead of war. and Bush's out of control spending we might not be in this mess.

    I agree there are people buying things they cannot simply afford, but maybe if credit card companies and banks stop allowing people to make large purchases and loans when knowing full well they person living above their means, people wouldn't feel so free buying a $80,000 car when they only make $30,000 a year.

    I have been in the finance business for over 12 years and it doesnt matter how much people make they all over extend themselves. I wish I had a dollar for every credit report I have seen where someone was a doctor, lawyer, engineer etc and they have $1000 car payments and all their credit cards are maxed out. Its a problem that all people have.

    I saw a special news report recently that said the leading causes of debt are the use of credit and poor money management. It was truly eye opening. :cool:
