I'm confused....Bush's policies are being blamed for the failing economy. But...doesn't Congress pass the laws...and isn't the majority of Congress Democrats...and hasn't Bush been on TV several times asking them to get off their *** and do something? Somewhere along the line I must have gotten confused. Maybe the Democrats are waiting to do something until their guy gets elected. Probably because they can't "reach across the aisle" and get it done without him.
By the way, I just read an editorial that said the next Pres will be one-term because he won't be able to get it done either.
I love our system, but sometimes it stinks!

it's not the system, its the career politicians on both sides. they are either too stupid or too greedy or both to get anything done. that's why I prefer libertarians.

if the president is SIGNIFICANTLY outnumbered on a matter he cannot veto anything.
If the Congress overrides the president's veto by a two-thirds majority in each house, it becomes law without the President's signature. Otherwise, the bill fails to become law unless it is presented to the President again and he chooses to sign it.
EDUCATE YOURSELVES ANONS!!! LOL

I feel sorry for president bush...a lot of uneducated people who think that the president controls EVERYTHING that goes on in this nation blame him for EVERYTHING!! Sure...he may have made a mistake or two but I would LOVE to see any regular civilian who judges him do better than he has. It's pathetic how ignorantly and quickly people rush to find a scapegoat for their problems.

The sub prime mortgages were initiated long before this sitting congress. Also, Bush pushed very hard on de-regulation. He probably thought he was doing good by the American people, helping them to get the credit (mortgages) they needed to achieve the American "Dream". He was at fault but not totally. Pre 2006 Congress was at fault as well. So were the Americans who choose to live beyond their means. I'm sure there are more names to be named - greedy CEO's, greedy oil stock holders, greedy corporations. Nobody is blameless. Do your reseach, the Democrats are not the problem. Greed is the problem.
