Liberal Congress was responsible

I was reading letters to the editor on Thursday, and saw “Bush presided over bank bailout.” It was humorous. The writer stated that “George Bush was the president who presided over the financial collapse that initiated the recession, and it was the Bush administration that orchestrated the bank bailout.” He was right on one thing, Bush was president at that time. What the writer doesn’t realize is the fact that to Bush’s credit, he was trying to pass a law at the time which would stop the radicals from forcing banks to give home loans to anybody. The radical liberals in Congress voted against the bill. The liberals involved in the big scam that messed up the economy were Chris Dodd, Barney Frank, and Barack Obama.
