I hear CONSTANTLY how our current financial mess is the fault of the media's favorite whipping boy, President Bush. Surely it has to be his fault... isn't everything?
Take a moment and watch the Fox News clip below and you'll begin to realize that not only is the current problem NOT President Bush's fault, but he actually tried on several occasions to push through legislation that may have avoided the mess. John McCain as well weighed in, warning that a problem was brewing that we needed to address immediately.
They were both defeated in their efforts by whom?.... Evil foreign powers? Crazy alien visitors from another world?
I almost think its funny that Barney "I'm a big douchebag" Frank is shown on video claiming that everything is rosey with Fannie and Freddie, while today he's been all over the screaming that the Republicans are at fault for all this mess. I say "almost" because the $700 billion bailout we're gonna get stuck with as a result of Democratic "feel good" policies makes everything pretty Un-funny right now.
Its also important to note that Obama is nowhere to be seen before this became an emergency issue. He's positive he has all the answers now... but he didn't even see it coming? Hmmm......
