The Libs hold sway with the media anyway. The story of the housing collapse is laid bare in this article and Bush takes the fall for the ENTIRE debacle. I think it is more complcated than this story presents. I think Bush began his presidency with a desire to get some economic sense into the financial markets but after 9/11 the thinking turned to "how can we get as much money spent as possible into our markets and world markets to goose economic growth" which for all practical purposes was headed for the tank. It was a fateful change of policy and it was highly contrary to the tenants of Republican conservative financial stewardship. It was a plan merrily
accepted by the Democrats because it was key to their long-term plan to increase the economic power of its own voter base. Add to that a ballooning bubble that nobody wanted to prick or even let the air out of under regulatory pressure.
so ... here is the story that blames Bush... remember up to now - our conservative resources have played to our suspicions that the key culprits were mostly Democrats, including many who are about to rule the government. http://www.iht.com/articles/2008/12/21/business/21admin.php

Why Those Pearl Harbor 'Conspiracy' Theories Ain’t So
Sunday, December 07, 2008
I hope there is an alternative view expressed on Bloomberg. This interview was a platform to save the Unions and not much else even though the word "Union" was carefully avoided from what I could hear.
Both the high tax governor's preference of a federal bailout and the unstated conservative's preference for chapter 11 roceedings are legitimate approaches to saving American car industry. In BOTH cases many jobs will be lost. However, many who watched the corrupt unions kill their own industry over the years - are eager to see their hold broken and the companies to flourish with a fresh approach to management and labor. Chapter 11 will allow that.
This "news piece" by Woodruff is a "Save the Union" plea and not much else. In my view - high taxes by the State of Michigan and union abuses in the old manufacturing belt around the Great Lakes have driven new industry elsewhere and kept the union buggy whip makers fully employed in a world where buggy whips are gone. Woodruff and the governor are pleading in this puff piece to save the unions because they were solid behind Obama. Where is the other side of this discussion?

To All My Democrat Friends:
Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2009, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that
To My Republican Friends:
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I think the CSA needs a bailout !!
Yes, Benjamin (Jewish) was Sec. Treasury for CSA ... lot of folks don't know that. I'd like to get this but am thinking investments in FORD or GM might be better SHORT TERM bets for now - given the Unions Survival being of utmost importance to the Democrats who formerly waged war against "THE Union" at the time of this certificate of loan.
