G "DUBYA" BUSH's Legacy

Why do the news outlets and leftist liberals not report the good things that he has done for the country and the people of Sudan instead of focusing on the problems that the country endured under his fine leadership?

In this case, you do not know what you are talking about. Wishing something is true does not make it so. Talk to someone in the banking industry. Banks who ignored the weaker thresholds on lending and stuck with the rigid old school guidelines, made it through the crisis with no problem. Those who went with the lower standards supported by the Dems had record loan defaults.

In a mid-August 2003 letter to Fannie Mae, Barny Frank urged Fannie to withdraw the underwriting guidelines that the Bush Administration had successfully gotten Fannie to strengthen (raising the principal/collateral commitment from 3% to 10%). He wrote, the Bush-inspired “changes could make housing too expensive for many Americans.”

So they started to make largerloans that were mostly unsecured. Schumer and Waters agreed with this. So as the Bush administration tried to reign in Fannie and Freddie from stupid loans the Dem gave them the go ahead. Shorty after, Freddie got into subprime and the rest is history.

Talking about GM, at least when they were the nation's largest employer, they paid enough for their workers to by their products without govt. subsidies unlike Wal-Mart, who will show their employees how to file for snap, medicaid, and other social services, plus what medical insurance is paid by socialist making GM vehicles in Canada, like those beloved GMC trucks. Again blame the working taxpayer and the working poor.

There is plenty of blame to go around for the crash in 07, but again ply the dictionary, anf find the term 'synthetic' credit default swap, alas how many poor people who could not afford their mortgage, bet against the ability to pay mortgages,and bundled them as equity and then sold them around the world,, Then made billions when a lot of people lost their shirts,pensions, and 401 k's, but tis so easy to blame the poor.

The auto manufactures forgot they are in the business to make Cars and Money, not to provide health insurance and retirement packages to union workers who were out to make it as difficult as possible to make Cars and Money. Remember the UAW’s legacy of Lordstown.

And GM who got themselves into bankruptcy by signing lousy contracts with greedy unions. Like GM said, they end up in Bankruptcy as a Health Insurance company that made cars on the side.

Bush inherited a recession from Clinton and 9/11. If the wars were unfunded you should blame Congress for given them the OK.

My plan reduces the national debt, and fast. So fast, in fact, that economists worry that we're going to run out of debt to retire. Presidential Radio Address (24 February 2001) Another mission accomplished....

THEY passed a near Trillion dollars for that, are you really that dense? So, in your opinion, we need to spend another trillion, "slated" for public works, that he'll spend some other way again?

The only thing he's told the truth about came the other day, when whining that the press was asking him difficult questions, "Gee, I guess I just need to pack up and go away!"

Yup, I'll come help you and Missy pack!

Free, does it hurt your head coming with such nonsense? It should!

So, Obama "tried" to get Republicans "on board" for a public works program? Oh, you mean "Stimulus II?" The first near one trillion dollar stimulus was supposed to be for "Shovel Ready" jobs, wasn't it? That's a public works program, That didn't go to public works projects.

Instead, it went to prop up public employee pension plans, freeing up money the state and local governments would have been forced to pay. That money was used instead to keep public employees on the job for a year. When that same money tree didn't appear the NEXT year, well, they got changed to other 'guvment jobs, or got dumped into the Unemployment line.

Many of the same posters here have time and time again said the presidents have no control over the price of a gallon of gas. You need to pick your arguments a little better. Maybe we should argue about the Keystone Pipeline and why BO wants Canadian Oil to go to China. DUBYA would have had the pipeline built by now and the oil would have been flowing. Or maybe we should argue why BO keeps supporting ethanol when the energy used and resources wasted in it production far out way any benefit we get from ethanol.

The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum opened to the public Wednesday, with the 43rd president greeting 43 area schoolchildren who were its first visitors.

"It was amazing seeing one of our nation's leaders who left an eight year legacy behind him," said Eduardo Borrego, a 6th grader Mark Twain Elementary in Richardson. He added, "I was like, 'I can't believe he's here.'"

The library and museum, along with Bush's policy institute, are housed in the George W. Bush Presidential Center on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas. The center was dedicated last week during a ceremony that featured Bush, President Barack Obama, and former Presidents Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush, who is Bush's father.

The 43 Dallas-Fort Worth area students were chosen by their superintendents to be the first visitors to the museum Wednesday, said library and museum spokesman John Orrell. He said about 300,000 visitors a year are expected.

Whose fault is it? The first week Obama was in office he trumped his nose at Congress and kicked them to the side of the road and rammed a bill past them !!! Would you call that cooperation?? I think not. I am tired of you saying it is all the repubs fault when your hero started this mess !!
