What Happened, you ask?

February 6, 2011

I remember before Obama became president, a lot of folks on the left were asking; “Are you better off than you were 8 years ago?”

They put the major focus on what a ‘bad’ man President Bush was, rather than paying attention to who they were trying to put in the White House, or what his agenda was, or what part he and his friends played in the financial crisis that was looming overhead.

Let’s take a look at a couple of major events that played a crucial role in putting our economy in dire straits.

In 2004, during the Fannie Mae hearings, Democrats such as Barney Franks, Maxine Waters and others, LIED and said there were no problems with Fannie Mae nor Freddie Mac, when they knew better.  It’s all on the record with C-Span…

Democrats in their own words Covering up the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac Scam that caused our Economic Crisis.


The housing meltdown was created largely in part by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The Democrats defended them as they crushed the economy.  Bush’s fault?

Nope…

And where does Barack Obama fit in to that whole mess? Read up on it:

Barack Obama’s Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac connection.

 

Then there was this, in 2008, which is part of why we pay so much for gas these days…

Speaker Pelosi won’t let the House debate the merits of offshore drilling.


She shut the Republicans down, turned out the lights, literally.  Bush’s fault?

Nope…

So who is currently draining all that oil that we could be benefiting from?

Cuba, China Drilling for Oil 50 Miles from Florida Shores

 

The latest about that from Obama…

Obama: No more offshore drilling in Gulf of Mexico until 2017

Wonderful…  China will have sucked the gulf dry by that time…

But let’s keep blaming Bush.
