Timeline shows Bush, McCain warning Dems of financial and housing crisis; meltdown (video)

Did I get your attention? Good! This is a fascinating thread I stumbled on over at FreeRepublic (I know, I know). I went there tonight to see how the Newt Gingrich Fan Club was dealing with the loss. I just had to click on it after reading the title because, of course the premise is bullshit. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2840700/posts

It starts off with a few freepers jumping in to say "I knew it, those friggen DEMONRATS!!!!" But then, a strange thing happens...a couple of posters start telling the truth...and boy, did they ever. One poster, Ol' Dan Tucker, gives them a solid, well researched analysis of the Bush administration's total culpability that led to the housing bubble and eventual banking meltdown in 2008....

After posting the facts, quotes, and great resource links....well, you can imagine what some of the dimbulbs thought of this turd getting dumped in their punchbowl. I recommend the thread just for Ol' Dan Tucker's research links - this guy has obviously done his homework. We are going to hear a lot of Republicans rewriting the history of the banking debacle that tries to pin the problem on Democrats...this is a great counter to that lie. And I found it at propaganda central!

1. Before the poster gets banned, I copied it...


Edited to add: The next long post of his is a doozy. It's very long & I'll leave that to others to peek in over there to read.

How soon they forget. There was no pushback from the Bush administration nor was there any initiative when they had a veto proof congress.
The initiative that Bush did show was to open the US banking and housing market to Mexican illegal aliens.

Funny how Bush's supporters never, ever seek to answer the following questions. If they did, the only reasonable answer is that Bush was in collusion with the DemocRATs to gut the US economy to the benefit of his Wall Street banker buddies and the detriment of the US citizens.

They always conveniently forget that Bush comes from a long line of Wall Street bankers and it is this constituency he served, from the day he entered office until the day he left.

This youtube video posted by the thread starter was created by the Bush folks themselves to hide Bush's actions which wrecked the US economy.


Why did Bush meet with El Presidente de Mexico, Vicente Fox on February 16, 2001, just 3 weeks after being inaugurated?

Exactly what was the purpose of the US/Mexico Partnership for Prosperity Agreement?

Exactly what was the purpose of the New Alliance Task Force?

Exactly what was the purpose of the American Dream Down Payment Act?

Why did the Bush Justice Dept. and Treasury Dept. give their blessings to the change in banking regulation to allow banks to accept the Matricula Consular card as ID?

Why did Bush, in 2002, praise Franklin Raines, of Fannie Mae and Leland Brendsel of Freddie Mac and call on them to increase their financial commitments to the 'minority' market by $440 billion?

Why did the Bush Administration change the rules to allow banks that served the 'minority' market through international remittances to claim CRA credit?

What are 'international remittances' and what size is the market?

Why did Bush champion amnesty for Mexican illegal aliens?

Why did the Bush administration claim that national security was a priority and form the TSA and DHS while supposedly fighting a "War on Terrorism", then leave the southern borders wide open by ordering border and interior immigration enforcement to the lowest levels in years?

Why didn't the Bush administration complete the southern border fence despite the signing the appropriations into law?

Why did Bush sign the US/Mexico Social Security Totalization Agreement that would allow a Mexican national to apply for and collect US SS benefits after having worked (illegally) in the US for only 6 quarters (18 months) and could collect US SS benefits for their family back home in Mexico, even if the family had never stepped foot into the US?

2. I copied it too...because the links are so well researched. No question he'll be zotted..can't have

truth and education allowed on FR!

Poor Deb, she's having a hard time dealing with this reality. She so wants to believe that everything is the fault of the DEMONRATS! Dan may be a troll, but I think he's more in the Ron Paul/3rd Party camps where both parties share the blame...but clearly, he's not accepting the BS premise of the OP.

5. I like how he answers the poster in #16

Stuff your stupid list. I donít respond to idiots who make up BS lists.

The only people posting BS are the 'idiots' who defend Bush's presidency.

It's document-dump time...

And Ol' Dan Tucker proceeds to address every one of the questions presented in that #11 thread.

4. Mitt Romney started this evening

with his victory speech at the Florida primary. One of the lines was about there more foreclosures under this President's term than that of any other. He forgot to mention that it was a Republican in the Oval Office which triggered the whole disaster. Guess we will have to start reminding them ... openly and often.
