How's about we start in late 2006 or 07.. when it all came to a head and 2009 had NOTHING to do with it. I'm sorry but I fail to see the Obamanization factor in what precluded this terrible mess NOR am I willing to blame the Bushwacked era. When are people gonna stop blaming the political administrations or party's for crimes committed by greedy industry ?? I've got a Masters in Business Admin but don't think that has led to my conclusions. When Greenspan put out the word of his retirement, at the peak of insanity, I had some serious misgivings about the future. He and his cronies got out of the markets just in the nick of time....... KINDA makes ya wonder...... doesn't it??? Here's a way to look at this thing..... Obama is nothing more than the Doctor in charge of triage. He didn't cause the injury and we're bleeding out.
