To be Republican is to be a hypocrite

Republicans are out today bitching, moaning, groaning, complaining about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. They're upset about the $150 Billion we've had to spend to save housing. They're upset that we're not addressing the problems with Fannie and Freddie right now.

SHUT THE F*%# UP. Stop being hypocrites. The American people are pissed off at politicians who point the finger of blame everywhere but in the mirror.

On September 2, 2004, President George W. Bush stood at the podium of the Republican National Convention in Madison Square Garden in New York City. He gave an acceptance speech. He was accepting the Republican party's nomination to run for a second term. A link to the speech is here. Read the speech. You will find this line of particular interest:

"Thanks to our [Republican] policies, home ownership in America is at an all-time high. Tonight we set a new goal: seven million more affordable homes in the next 10 years so more American families will be able to open the door and say welcome to my home."

George Bush and the Republican Party were ALL about "an ownership society". George pushed housing ownership like there was no tomorrow. George caused this F*#*ing housing crises. Republicans are to fault for this giant mess at Fannie and Freddie. This was their fault. They failed us. They failed all of America.

Republicans need to be punished for their failures. They controlled the White House for 8 years while this mess was in the making. And now they're being hypocrites by complaining about the crap they left on our doorstep.

ENOUGH. We've had ENOUGH. We need to boot out of office every politician who served during the Bush Administration. That includes our sorry Republican Senator Richard Burr. The man is an empty suit who has accomplished absolutely nothing of substance for the citizens of North Carolina. We deserve better than our sorry Republican Senator Richard Burr.
