Right after Obama was elected he stated “ I've got four years and … A year from now, I think people are going to see that we’re starting to make some progress, but there’s still going to be some pain out there … If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.”
Now clearly Obama did indeed inherit a mess. This there is no doubt. There is however enough blame to go around. Did Bush make mistakes and screw some things up? Yes, but to lie and lay all the blame on Bush's shoulders is just cowardly and not the truth. Obama's lapdogs in the lame stream press have never stopped blaming everything on him. Are they just ignorant, incompetent journalists? Or are they just plain stupid. Do I think they are stupid? No, I don't think so. I believe they know exactly what they are doing. Most have spent a lot of time being educated and have all kinds of degree's. So I think a lot of them are just plain lazy and have a liberal agenda. You see they know from history that if you tell a huge lie and repeat over and over again you can brainwash the masses. This makes them dangerous. This is also not some new phenomenon. Thomas Jefferson said it best... As for what is not true, you will always find abundance in the newspapers. 1806
Now we all know what happened to the economy. It was like the perfect storm. Too much government spending leading to too much debt. The collapse of the banking institutions and the housing market. Bush was definitely guilty of grossly over spending. The major cause of the collapse however was the failure of the banks and housing markets. This Bush tried to warn us about. Several times. In fact 17 times in 2008 he warned and pleaded with congress to reform Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. This was as we know blocked every time by the socialists Chris Dodd and Barney Frank. These two mental midgets are the ones Barack Obama should be calling out if he was an honest person. Its really hard to use the word honest and Obama in the same sentence. The two are polar opposites. Oh yea and by the way this stoke of unbelievable stupidity started with Jimmy carter back in 1977. It was called a nice compassionate, "Community reinvestment act." Under Carter and Clinton they forced the banks to relax the standards of lending requirements to minorities, and low income individuals applying for home mortgage and small business loans. Regardless if they could afford the loans or not. What a stroke of genius.
So what does all this ranting boil down too? We have a dishonest anti constitution President and a lame excuse for a press corp. Now you definitely can't trust this President to get the truth. The press however does manage to squeeze bits of it in little drips and drabs. So you really have to dig around and do your own homework to get at the truth. Our founders tried to warn us of this, if we are ignorant and expect to remain free we're only fooling ourselves and insuring that the next generation will be less free than we are now. We are lucky though, unlike in Jefferson's day. We have a fantastic tool called the internet. We have a vast amount of information at our finger tips. Use it and put an end to ignorance.
