Isn't it clever how Democrat policy is mostly to blame for the Great Recession but Democrats blame the GOP?

That's not clever and neither are you. How are you measuring mostly? Neither party operates in a vacuum. Neither party had more or less opportunity to create or repair the issues that lead to the recession, though the GOP had 4 years of exclusive control of DC from 2003 to 2007 when they could have done something to fend off the problems that caused it. They didn't do anything of substance and that may be why the GOP at least looks more at fault. The collapse of the housing bubble actually started in 2006 after it peaked. Washington didn't react until things got out of control in 2008 and 2009, that includes both parties.

The media has no credibilty anymore. NBC, ABC, CBS all have liberal producers and editors a bunch of damn democrat yes men repeating the lies of the progressives. What is even more retarded, many asinine libtards actually think the comedy show The Daily Show is an actual news outlet. Then these same stupid kids stay in their lil circles, never expanding their information base and just agree with each other when these damn stupid kids don't even know what they are talking about in the first place. Its mental illness gone wild.. look for the sitcom on MTV soon.

Sorry, pal. Bush/Cheney, repub congressmen and their masters on Wall Street ARE responsible for the Great Recession.

Obama got re-elected so unfortunately their tactic is working. The GOP needs to stop focusing on the democrats and reinvent themselves. Tout fiscal responsibility, national defense, the Constitution, and leave everything else up to the states. They are losing because of social issues. Most people these days don't care about financial obligations but care for social issues instead. It's a flaw in society, but the GOP still has to adjust to regain power and fix this mess.
The Community Reinvestment Act of 1994, Chris Dodd and Barney Frank refusing G.W. Bush and John McCain's warnings, 9/11, and high business tax rates is what got us into this mess. The GOP had a small part in it yes, but the democrats ran away with the spending and don't even care about creating a budget or cutting spending.
Don't listen to people blaming "Bush's 2 wars" because the two wars have only amounted to 1/16th of our national debt. Obama apparently "ended" one of the wars yet spending hasn't gone down, and in fact it has increased. The government is pumping the economy with quantitative easing to cover up how bad it really is, which is actually making the problem worse.

It's clever that you blame it all on the democrats but give GOP a free pass

I have asked before and I will ask again. Name any bills passed by congress from 07 to 09 that hurt this country. Uh huh. And if you are referring to bills passed before 07 then your party had six years to remedy that. And if you are referring to the housing crisis, that was brought about by two bills passed in the mid 80's. Guess who was president then?

Well, since that isn't exactly true, no, I suppose it isn't clever.

Bush/Cheney policies brought the country down near the end of Bush's two terms. We can't let Republican policies do that again.

It is what they always do. They thought Bush stole the election in 2000 when that fat dope actually conceded and then took it back because he figured he could steal Florida by changing "chad" votes and disenfranchising the absentee military votes.
