” Watch out!! You’ll likely be called a faux conservative for calling out the hypocrisy!”
Yeah....only “faux conservatives” are against destroying the united states.....gotta remember that LOL!
SJB pinged me because he knows I love tormenting the Bush-bots by reminding them of his real record, not their imaginary one. Many of them fled here in 2011 and many others still here dont mention GWB anymore short a ‘miss Bush yet’ thread they cant resist.
Bush's hands were all over the (his term) housing bubble and he could have stopped it in time ~ mid 2004 but the actions required would not have been popular. By late 2005 house prices had risen too- high too-fast to result in anything but disaster.

It would not have been popular, to say the least, but it would have stopped the madness. Bush preferred to wring every ounce of political capital he could out of this. He ran from the problem, and then tried like hell to capitalize on it......especially with hispanics. Made me sick.
If Bush had given a TARP speech in 2004 instead of 2008 calling for Regulations rather than the later bailout there would have been some unhappy investors and home owners and it would have been harder to be re-elected, but the damage would have been a small fraction of what it resulting in by letting the debt and house buying fever to continue.
A small panic from the speech would have stopped it, and many a few regulations would have been passed.
Getting rid of the down payment requirement was stupid.
