Whose fault is it?

I am so tired of seeing Obama's spokespeople today somehow blaming John McCain for what's happening on Wall Street. There's plenty of blame to go around.

Thanks! This article encapsulates all the bits I've heard on the mortgage meltdown in the past year or so. Now I need to start some deep breathing exercises to lower my blood pressure.

If the Democrats really are to blame than why didn't Bush do something about it in the 8 years he was in office?

Why don't we blame the people who really are responsible, the ones who overextended themselves? Why is it that people look at those who took out the mortgages as victims? No one put a gun to their head and made them take out the loans. And how about the government as a whole, not one specific party, but all of them who decide to mess with the mortgage lending business?

I totally agree with you Kim. That was Neil Cavuto's point yesterday. There is plenty of blame to go around. And the Democrat spokesperson he was talking to wouldn't admit that there was any responsibility borne by those who took out the loans!

What is frustrating to me is that the Dems in congress are saying that they had nothing to do with it. That's pure baloney!

I think Bush should have tried to do something. But Bush has been a huge disappointment in many areas.
