    1) Clueless consumers who have no concept that current actions have future results.
    2) Government intervention in the private sector.
    3) Alan Greenspan, Larry Summers and the Clinton Administration for setting this up.
    4) George Bush and both houses of government for ignoring looming disaster resulting from horrific policies.


    Now...ask me who I will blame for the recession coming next.

    all of the above plus;

    1) so-called citizens milking the public tit
    2) big business milking the public tit

    However ultimately it is entirely the fault of each and every voter who has continued to vote for the same failed policies of failure for the last 50-75 years

    Many factors, including the President, both major parties, some GOP stalwarts, world economic conditions, natural disasters, and last but not least, the american people.
