Study Confirms That Democrats Destroyed the Economy

Home - by - December 28, 2012 - 11:30 America/New_York - 20 Comments

The reason you hear Obama repeat over and over the stupid refrain ” why go back to the policies that got us in this mess?” is because he is employing typical progtardian behavior – projection.

Examiner -

A new study from the widely respected National Bureau of Economic Research released this week has confirmed beyond question that the left’s race-baiting attacks on the housing market (the Community Reinvestment Act–enacted under Carter, made shockingly more aggressive under Clinton) is directly responsible for imploding the housing market and destroying the economy.

The study painstakingly sorted through failed home loans that caused the housing market collapse and identified an overwhelming connection between them and CRA mortgages.

Again, let’s review:

-President Bush went to Congress repeatedly for years warning them that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were going to destroy the economy (17 times in 2008 alone). Democrats continuously ignored him, shut down his proposals along party lines and continued raiding the institutions for campaign contributions on their way down.

    So when do the prosecutors start filing charges. Conspiracy, fraud, embezzelment would be a good start. Conviction, jail, and throwing away the key would be a good finish.

    Bush tried to put the kibosh on Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac in 2004 but the Democrats wouldn’t let him. The one guy who tried to stop the sub-prime mortgage crisis is the one guy who continues to get blamed for it to this day. American voters are stupid.

    Franklin Raines made $93 million perpetrating this nationwide fraud on hapless taxpayers. Urban guerilla Jamie Gorlick made something like $23 million keeping the candle of fraud and deception burning at Fannie/Freddie, as it drove our once-thriving economy into the crapper.

    Fear not, duped taxpayers!!(yeah, youse, who just voted O’Blowmen Samich back in as our nation’s Imam for another four years): The MSM will come to our rescue by relentlessly reporting the results of this important study for months on end, and soon all the perps will be rounded up and become front page news on every major and minor liberal rag, I mean newspaper and news program in the country – starting in 3, 2, 1………….

    It’s from IDB, so you won’t be able to convince anyone, just like with Fox News. In other words it’s the truth, but it’s not on Huffington Post.

    Old news. You know it, I know it, and anyone with half a brain knows it. The problem is that the 51% Low-Information democrat voters don’t have a clue and could care less about anything beyond their next video game or Facebook “friend”. The future of our country is in the hands of totally clueless morons – the backbone of the democrap party.

    Destroy the economy, destroy the currency, register then confiscate citizens’ lawfully owned guns.

    Sounds like a communist takeover.

    As inflation takes off, jobs continue to dry up and taxes increase more “low information voters” are going to be forced to pay more attention. Too bad for the rest of us that wanted to avoid the coming catastrophe and now will have to share the hurt with the rest of the door knobs that let the Democriminals carry on their fraud scheme.

    And it was only happenstance that Bush began his 8 years with a great economy, a record surplus and left it with record deficit and near depression? You have a paper asshole.
