Times Blames Bush – I Couldn’t Agree More

It seems that the biggest reaction coming from the White House in over seven years is its response to the New York Times article which blames Bush for the mortgage crisis. And that's precisely the problem.

Defenders of the worst President that history will ever see are saying that the Times itself blamed the Clinton administration and other factors ten or so years ago for what would then be the coming crisis, and my response to that is – so what?

Yes, Clinton and people like Barney Frank were and are to blame, by Bush knew that there were big problems ahead, and yet he did nothing , as is his custom (has any President done less?). He could have and should have been at the podium on a daily basis warning of what would happen, but he wasn't. Had he done so, he'd have avoided virtually all blame. And today, he's the biggest socialist this country will hopefully ever see.

My own feeling is that there's nothing now that Bush doesn't deserve blame for. Even things he did right went badly and he responded by doing too little, too late to correct the little he has corrected, not to mention that he's acted unilaterally in bailing out the auto industry, when he could have been hailed, as Reagan was, for breaking the back of a union.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.
