To correct every post bellow
Bush did not cause the debt we are in. And Obama is not helping it.
They have no power over the economy what so ever. They can pitch ideas though.
Congress are the people who controls the economy. Don't bitch about the president, bitch about congress

Are you ******* kidding me ?!

Do you see who is chairman of the federal reserve , the same guy who argued for deregulation which caused the financial collapse is still the chairman

and Henry Paulson the ex CEO of Goldman Sachs went to work as Treasury secratary under Bush !!!!

Your American Government ****** a lot of the world over, due to systemic risk and the interlinking of countries.



Under your ******** strive for freedom your congress and president wanted more free markets which allow rich individuals to reap benefits and mitigate the risk to the organisation whilst losing nothing personally

Except the deregulation didn't cause the economic collapse, it's actually accredited with lessening the blow of the clinton housing bubble (the thing that actually caused the market to crash.)

Except that just because a housing bubble bursts there will be a stock decline, but the fact that the banks were allowed to leravge themselves 33 to 1 meant that as soon as any market that was backing a security burst the whole bank was seriously at risk

Banks were allowed to back way over 95% of securities in the mortgage market alone, so yeah the bubble bursting caused a recession but only because the regulations in place that would have limited the effects were removed under bernankee and Paulson

politicians will always be corrupt if the democracy is in a capitalistic frame

look at americans elections, there isnt a single politician who dares piss off any of the big firms, simply because they are dependant on their support/lack of opposition to have any chance at a succesful career as politician.

The US was not in debt before Bush. It was more than $10 trillion by the time he left. He gave massive tax cuts to the rich and gave jack **** to the middle and working classes. I agree that Obama is not helping, but saying that Bush did not create debt is ignorant as hell.

Except the crisis was largely caused by the housing bubble created by clinton, the deregulation on wall street by bush was actually accredited as actually lessening the blow when the bubble started to burst, learn your ******* history.

Accreddited by who ?


The whole deregulation aspect escalated any loss due to the over investment in one area without having a enough reserve funds to mitigate the risk ...

Debt is not the problem with our economy..... and Bush did the exact opposite of what we should have been doing during an economic boom.

Well, your opinion has lack of evidence.
I bet you don't even know how the government works.
Economy is controlled by the Federal Reserve.
Anyways back to government, Obama can't pass laws that will help us progress.
In order to pass most laws, acts, policies, what have you, they must be approved by citizens, then the house of representatives then through a majority vote in congress before even seen by the president. Most of the time they get shut down before the president can even make a decision on what actually happens.
You see, our government is separated in to cabinets, not kitchen cabinets but sections; these sections entail many many people, some republicans, some democrats, these people think differantly than each other, Republicans Coke, democrats Pepsi.
Now lets back it up, When president Bush served his term, most of the cabinet was chosen by him because people left, quit, blah blah blah. Bush chose a majority republicans for his terms. When Obama became president, he had to deal with all these republicans refusing and rejecting a lot of democratic inclined acts.

I agree with you. But the Gif kinda symbolises that Bush ****** up the economy, and Obama carries on. That is why the ending is cut off, where the guy stops the rampaging caddie.

When the guy gets into the cart to try and stop it the steering wheel cover folds down and a boxing glove shoots out, knocking him off the cart.

That's how that would be represented.

bush may have ****** up some, but he didn't triple the national debt in under a year his first term, obama on the other hand did, and has continued to **** up the national debt since then. he gave us hope and change alright, he changed our debt into one that will never be able to be payed half way off let alone all the way, and he makes us hope that his entire cabinet including himself resigns so we can get a competent president in office before the country falls into complete disarray or worse yet a civil war(yes i do believe we are on the verge, not saying we should or shouldn't have one just saying its right around the corner with the way this clown is ******* things up)

We should never have to have another Civil War, but if we don't get elected people who truly care about our needs (party lines don't mean **** to me anymore, but Libertarians seem to have their **** completely straightened), we will use force. That's what the Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence declare logical in such conditions.

Obama didn't triple the Debt, nor the deficit. The increase in deficit came from bailouts approved by bush, then attributed to Obama.

On top of that, Bush sent troops to every corner of the world and approved mindless military spending that continued to fund money to useless military programs that are pointless.

I'm not saying this from a liberal POV, just trying to say that people are stupid to put blame on Obama when history shows that the blame falls on the previous two terms, both of served by Bush.

ya, how could i be so stupid the Bush's protection of this great nation was mindless spending on a useless military program that helps keep the crazy anti-american ***** at bay for the most part(yes some slip through but nothing is fool proof)

you're not saying it from a liberal pov but yet you are doing the same thing the liberals do and blame the guy you replaced. so does that mean from 2016 till 2024 we can blame everything that goes wrong on obama? and take credit for anything good that happens due to policies inacted by him like he did with binladen? we would have never had the info we had to know what doctor to pressure into helping without the big bad water boarding done by bush even though obama opposed those tactics he was quick to claim the victory that came from them
