Stop the BS and let's tell the truth...

Every person running Democrat has been misrepresenting the position of most of their Republican or Tea-Party adversaries when it comes to their positions on taxes and trying like hell to revise history on the Bush years.

The Truth is that yes, the current recession began during the Bush Presidency but had nothing to do with the administrations' tax cuts as (most) all Democrats would have us believe.

Yes, the Bush administration agreed to the TARP fund for reasons that looked like were definately anti-Free Market. Yes, the Bush administration had a massive increase in the Education spending and the Prescription Drug program. Bush was/is a moderate (not a small-goverment guy) and, the then Republican-controlled House and Senate exuded no conservative "small government" controls on the growth and size of obligations to the taxpayer.

But, the current recession had nothing to do with any of that. It was the housing bubble bursting and overwhelming the banking system, pure and simple. The economy took a huge blow because the conservatives woke up too late to oppose the subtle and not so subtle changes in the lending/banking laws that also (I might add) ALL Democrats voted for.

So, lets stop all the BS about the Republicans driving the car into the ditch, shall we?
