I think you need to check this... Let's see. Are the problems with Greece's economy failing due to "conservatism"? No; that would be due to LIBERALISM. Is the reason that all of Europe's economies hang on a cliff due to conservatism? No, that would also be due to LIBERALISM/PROGRESSIVISM.

Was the US BANK INDUSTRY BAILOUT due to conservatism? NO, that would be due to BARNEY FRANK, CHRIS DODD and the rest of the PROGRESSIVES; who forced Fannie and Freddie to approve loans with cash back to people who had no possible way of repaying them! Then it caused crashes in the banking and investment industry. AIG failed because of all the credit default insurance they had sold on what were assumed to be A++ securities. Now who controls AIG, Fannie, and Freddie? The F'in PROGRESSIVE government who screwed them in the first place! Kick the PROGRESSIVES WHO LARGELY HIDE BEHIND THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY OUT; this has nothing to do with CONSERVATIVES OR THE TEA PARTY.

Knotty, I'm with you here.

All Im sayin is Bush never saw a spending bill the repubs and he didn't like.

I understand what you are saying about the dems. But progressives are in both parties and like I said before I want to kick the bums out.

By the way back in 1989 the S&L crisis in the midwest had a guy at the center of it. REMEMBER HIS NAME?
Another banking crises with his brother in the office of president. Coincidence? I THINK NOT! There all a bunch of crooks and thieves and need to go away.

From the NYT:

At a news conference in Washington on Thursday, Mr. Obama said he was angry and frustrated about the catastrophe, and he shouldered much of the responsibility for the continuing crisis.
Those who think we were either slow on the response or lacked urgency, dont know the facts, Mr. Obama said. This has been our highest priority.

yeah, it's hard to sit on your thumbs for a month.
