Economy not Bush's fault. No Siree! Everybody - anybody - else is to blame

Closely related to the post just below this one, AlterNet's headline cuts through the crap:

Hey Homeowners, Bush Blames You -- Not Iraq -- for Our Tanking Economy

From Bloomberg: Money & Politics:

U.S. Home Foreclosures Jump 90% as Mortgages Reset

Yeah, the economy's in the shitter because people couldn't keep up the usurious payments on the pie-in-the-sky fraudulent loans that Bush wouldn't let the states regulate.

Yeah, it's all their fault. Borrowing trillions to finance a criminal war that increased the national debt to where the big light-up signs don't have enough numbers to display it, all the while cutting domestic expenditure so the rich won't have to be inconvenienced by paying taxes like the Great Unwashed of the rest of us do, had nothing to do with it. It's all the lazy bastard Americans who can no longer support the banks and swindler lenders in the manner to which they've become accustomed.

Yeah, right.

Note to Bush: You. Fucking. Asshole.

I'll give the bastard this: He can lie with a straight face like nobody I've ever seen. Probably sleeps like a baby, too. Why not? He's never had much of a conscience, and he doesn't have to worry about his soul - it's long gone to the devil in exchange for the office he holds.
