I really am sick of this partisan fingerpointing when it comes to the downward spiral the economy seems to be on. They all need to take blame and work together to help the economy recover, but this is Washington and fat chance of that ever happening. McCain and Palin are opting for pointing the finger mostly at Wall Street, the Democrats are blaming Bush policies and the American people who are caught up in the housing crisis are blaming predatory lending. It’s not called predatory lending, its called getting into a house when you don’t have the money. Just today after McCain said that the SEC head should be fired (which solves nothing) Obama responded with this:
“I think that’s all fine and good but here’s what I think. In the next 47 days you can fire the whole trickle-down, on-your-own, look-the-other way crowd in Washington who has led us down this disastrous path. Don’t just get rid of one guy. Get rid of this administration. Get rid of this philosophy. Get rid of the do-nothing approach to our economic problem and put somebody in there who’s going to fight for you.”
So Obama has nothing to do with this economic crisis – nothing to take blame for? He’s going to fight for you. Hmm…that seems strange when considering that he is number two on the list of Congressmen who have received payoffs, I mean payouts, from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Obama also happens to be number two in donations from Lehman Brothers – Hmm. I’m sure that didn’t affect his judgement. I’m also pretty sure this is all the Bush Administrations fault since they head up the oversight committee on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac or wait, would the Chairman of HUD be Democrat Chris Dodd? The same Chris Dodd who is ranked above Obama on that donation list from Fannie and Freddie, meaning he is number one. And I’m thinking this whole idea of getting people who couldn’t afford homes into homes started back with Jimmy Carter when everybody wanted to be politically correct and not be thought of as racists. Yeah, so let’s pin this squarely on the Republicans. Now I know the Republicans are to blame here as well. That’s why I’ve been calling for the whole lot of them to be thrown out for sometime.
Since Obama is going to solve this whole problem perhaps he could ask Nancy Pelosi what in the hell she is doing by adjorning Congress right now. Weren’t these losers just on break? Does she have another book tour since the first one bit? Maybe she has decided to be a better mother and hang out with her kids where women belong. Or perhaps she agrees with Harry Reid who said, “No one knows what to do.” They are hoping to not return to Congress after the election and just wait until next year. Talk about leadership. So let’s see, that’s nothing done for the energy crisis (except that little bill that gives the government all the money for oil and states nothing and allows drilling in all the areas with no oil) and nothing for the housing crisis and nothing for the economic crisis. At least they got some post offices named.
