Where did cons get the absurd lie that the economy was fine until the dems took control of Congress?

I smell regurgitated Hannity or Limbaugh. The dems did not take control of Congress until January 2007.

Why would cons parrot a lie that is so easily proved false?



Because the Republican Party constituent base is, typically, either undereducated and cannot discern lies from truth or they are of that class that does not care about truth so much as they care about having a party that will protect their priveledge and guard their unethical profits.

Ha…that’s nice…because everyone knows history only began after the Clinton years. FWIW…they’re wrong too, but not all the way.

It actually can be traced all the way back to 1977 (which president was that?), and the Community Reinvestment Act. From there, that awful policy (good intentions, terrible follow-through…typical politics) got new life in 1995 (which president was that?) which allowed the program to expand and offer even more loans to people who can’t pay them. Then, in the earlier part of this decade, change was sought (around 2003…which president was that?) but shot down.

Quoting Barney Frank (D-MA) here: “These two entities — Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — are not facing any kind of financial crisis, the more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.” This was said about 4-5 years ago, when anyone could’ve told you that this was going to happen, even with the tiniest amount of accuracy.

Go back to the schoolyard.

I don’t know the exact answer to the question it needs more research….

I would start with Jim Johnson Ex-Ceo of fannie-Mae and his ties to Obama’s team to find a VP

maybe I would look into Mr Rezko a little bit
then maybe I would talk to Chris Dodd about his strange bedfellows at countrywide….
maybe talking to barney franks unwavering support of fannie/freddie needs looking at?

SO….you still believe the “cons” have everything to do with this? please…

and how does one get to top contributor in politics? by fawning to all the obama-bots?

“to a crisis in August 2007 for the subprime, Alt-A, CDO, CDX, mortgage, credit, hedge fund, and foreign bank markets”

Funny, I was almost certain that August 2007 was after January 2007.

They love to shift blame….they always do and they never mention how much bush has used veto since then
he didn’t before…

If they block everything how can they get anything done when they do not have a true majority(2/3)

A lot of people just accept anything they are told by authorities. Maybe it is a result of poor parenting – they are not taught to think for themselves or to research anything or maybe they are just lazy. Maybe they are also uneducated and see only what they want to see.

Well gee, where did Obama get the absurd lie that he has strong links to the Working Class? While he was out partying with the rich scum in Hollywood, McCain was speaking with the Working Class citizens in Ohio.

See, in Politics, everybody lies. You can’t trust anything you hear. Whether it’s the Republicans or the Democrats, they will both lie to advance the political agendas of their party. Good, honest, politicians who are intested in bettering off America are long gone.

According to cons Bush has no effect on ANYHTING. Everything has has done wrong is to be blamed on Clinton or a Congress that has been in for less than 2 years. Anything has has done right…..oh wait, he hasn’t done anything right.

well, seems to me the last dem. we had as president(Clinton) handed to reigns to Bush with a balanced budget, so what does that tell you? Bush has ruined us, he has put us in the poor house and made the US look like a laughing stock to the whole world….so the blame….REPUBLICANS!!!!!

Because it is true.

We have Pelosi to thank for the current mess.

Follow the money…
