Because when President Barack Obama was blaming every problem under the sun on his predecessor President George W. Bush, he just wasnt go back far enough. Via RCP:
WARREN: I grew up in an America that was investing in kids. It was investing in public universities. It had a higher minimum wage. It was an America that said every kid would get a fighting chance. And thats how we built Americas great middle class. Then starting in about the 1980s, we turned in a different direction.
COLBERT: You mean when Reagan came in and it was morning in America. The direction toward greatness, pride.
WARREN: Thats right. And what happened is that he had a couple of ideas. The first one was that they would fire the cops. Not the ones on Main Street but the ones on Wall Street.
COLBERT: The ones who were shackling creativity, and ingenuity in our financial institutions.
WARREN: And making sure the biggest financial institutions actually followed the law. Those were the cops they got rid of.
COLBERT: The law thats a vague term, law. Your one mans law is another persons regulations. And regulation is bad. Regulation stifles business and stifles entrepreneurship.
WARREN: No, no. no. See if we dont have happens is exactly what happened then. And that is the big financial institutions made billions of dollars by cheating people on credit cards, mortgages.
COLBERT: What do you mean cheating people on credit cards? You sign up for a credit card, you use the credit card and then you have to pay your bills. Is that too complicated for Harvard?

When Elizabeth Warren holds a telephone up to her head the party at the other end hears the ocean.
Maybe Princess Lying Toad could blame it on Sitting Bull.
Fauxcohantas needs to put a sock in it.
“Then starting in about the 1980s, we turned in a different direction. “
And thank God we did, idiot, because Carter was sitting there watching the country go down the drain. Reagan started a 20 year economic boom.
Gee, why the hell would we want to go back to the 80’s, we were all working.
Miserable lying bitch..
She grew up buying foreclosed houses and flipping them.
From there she went on to lying about Indian ancestry to land a sweet job at Harvard.
She says she cares about the poor but lives in a multi-million dollar home in Cambridge.
Wow, they be way too clever for me. If I didn’t know better I’d swear they’re trying to be sarcastic (or something).
Buy it's true, she cares a great deal about the poor. That is she cares a great deal about keeping the poor the hell away from her and her house in Cambridge.
Are you serious? Honest injin?
Does anybody remember the 1970’s? I do. It was hell. You couldn’t buy a job. Delusional Leftists.
“Does anybody remember the 1970s? I do. It was hell. You couldnt buy a job. Delusional Leftists.”
Yep, graduated 1980. My first election of voting age and voted for Ronald Reagan. I’ve never felt as proud as I did voting for that man that day.
Carter was an absolute disaster. As a high school age kid, we thought the world was coming to an end.
“She says she cares about the poor but lives in a multi-million dollar home in Cambridge.”
She does care about the poor and is going to use YOUR money to “help” them.
Franklin Pierce did it!
