GOP means Grand Old Pirates

The White House Blog: “This is the same agenda that caused the deepest recession since the Great Depression, costing 8 million jobs, wiping out trillions in family wealth and setting middle-class families back. Instead of a pledge to the American people, Congressional Republicans made a pledge to the big special interests to restore the same economic ideas that benefited them at the expense of middle-class families.”

The parties are so far apart. One is for America, one is for the rich in America. I’ll let you decide who is who.

Are you that ignorant to just believe what the White House Blog says as fact?

I think if you did a little research of your own you would be pretty surprised as to what and who actually caused the recession.

HINT! It all started with mortgages and people getting loans and homes they could not afford and should have never received. These loans where chopped up and resold as parts of large portfolios on the secondary market (a normal practice that works when loans are good).

Try and find out who basically told the banks to give out these loans. Nobody from the GOP and in fact the GOP did everything they can to stop it but were called racists by groups like ACORN saying they were denying minorities of the right to own homes. Who cares if they can afford it right?

Better yet, find out who was a part of presenting lawsuits against banks who would not lend lend and LEND some more. HINT! He’s now the President of the United States.

Maybe do some research on Freddie and Fannie and see their hand in everything and see who was running them and see which candidate they provided the most financial support for?

But I don’t really expect you to actually find out the truth as you take a blog post from the White House as fact.

Maybe you like videos?

Try actually doing like it says and Google the info it presents so you can read it for yourself., I don’t usually approve comments from people that hide their identity, but I’m going to make an exception this time. If you’re too cowardly to show your name, you’re not worth the trouble.

Further comments will not be approved unless you give your real name, and a verifiable e-mail address.

Thanks for sharing your opinion. Like I said, the parties are definitely at odds.

Rob, I can not agree with you more. Sadly there are people that actually believe the garbage in the GOP’s pledge.

My favorite is the GOP is painting people that oppose them as elitists out of touch with the “main street” American, when they themselves are elitists who policies and “pledges” are drafted to benefit those who have the most



Mr. No above has some good points in his rant. There’s some truth in there. Deregulation hurt us because the criminals figured out how to take advantage of it. That and the housing loan craziness. Heck, I’m a big dummy and remember telling my wife we were going to be in trouble when all the “balloon” style loans given back when housing prices went nuts kicked into overdrive.

I just wish the two parties could find someone to unite them. Find a middle ground for the good of America. BOTH sides need to give a little because we’re getting nowhere.

I’m biased of course, I’d describe myself as a Demublican, or Republicrat, because I’m moderate in my thinking, just left of center in many ways.

There’s a lot of anger today. No solutions, just anger. That needs to be fixed and one party cannot do it alone.

I’ll invite you to examine the bi-partisan bailouts of the big banks, and the donation disparity at the high end: the dirty secret is that Democrats are much, much more dependent on large donors than Republicans are. Republicans get a higher percentage from small donors.

The reality is, big banks (Goldman Sachs being the best example) buy into both parties in a huge way. Just look at where both Paulsen and Geithner came from.
