The ‘financial crisis’ came about in 2006 when Pelosi took over.

Look at the spending jump between 2006 and 2008

She never once opened her mouth without saying the words “the failed Bush administration”

Correct. The Dimorats took power in Congress in 2006.

And, Bush went right along with her. The ink in his veto pen ink well dried out along with any of my support.

To get the answer to the causes of the economic crisis, perhaps you should look at Bush's financial policies during his first term in office.

This is when he set the events in motion that ultimately led to the crisis that occurred at the end of his second term where the effects of his the Partnership for Prosperity Agreement (with Mexico), New Alliance Task Force and PATRIOT Act of 2001 were felt.

If you want more details, feel free to read all about it on my FR home page.

Not disagreeing with you there.

It's just that W and top GOPers at the time NEVER EVER laid out a coherent "here is the problem, how we got there, and the logical solution would be ...." case to the public.

No matter how shrilled the liberals screamed at the time, more 'adults' would have looked/listened dispassionately, and thus rationally. [Probably another chalk up Rove's brilliance.]

Yes, the day Pelosi took over the headlines began to move away from wall-to-wall coverage on Iraq (which Bush was now winning) to wall-to-wall coverage on the "Depression economy" (even though unemployment was steady in the 4% range).

They used those headlines to drive the economy in and usher in a Chicago thug socialist...and the closer Obama got to his goal the more the economy crashed.

This still makes me physically nauseous.
