    Obama blasts banks for opposing financial overhaul - Yahoo! News

    He told "60 Minutes" that the banks were to blame for the financial fall out last year.

    I thought it was Bush's fault.


    Oh wait...later in the article, he singles out republicans and lobbyists as the ones that are opposed to stricter oversight. Which confuses me, since there were SO many democrats who benefitted from the risky moves that the banks were making on shakey loans in the first place.

    I think the POTUS just has his panties in a wad because somebody decided to quit kissing his shiney little Nobel Peace Prized ass.

    Well the solution is as plain as the ears on Obama's head. The federal government should have a public bank option. This would force competition and make for higher quality banks available to all.

    Come on dumb asses I'm waiting.

    Well, let's see. For the first six years of Bush's presidency, the Republicans held the presidency and both houses. They also had a majority in the Supreme Court.
    They never included the cost of either war in their budgets. They cut taxes for the rich, DURING A TIME OF WAR and and completely deregulated Wall Street.

    Republicans ran up enormous deficits and yet did nothing to fix health care or our crumbling infra structure. Where did the money go? Who knows?

    Now, tell me again how it's the Democrats "fault".

    Democrats, 0-3 on these as well. You were working your way right up to a good point and then you took a wrong turn. So sad.

    That's the problem with Republicans, drop a little truth on their tiny heads and they say, "It's not true". No supporting evidence, no corroboration. Just "It's not true". As if denial equals truth. So sad. Sad and pathetic.

    Truth? You can't handle the truth.

    1. Obama has THE LARGEST deficit, by his own hand, of any President.
    2. Obama has not accomplsihed ANY inprovement in health care coverage.
    3. Infrastructure is just as broken as the day he took office.
