re-posted from Daily Kos We all know 'that guy'; the one that has Rush Limbaugh playing 24/7 at his desk at work and swears that Bush never lied - not even once. On a recent trip back to my office, I overheard him explaining why the financial crisis happened: Carter, Clinton, Janet Reno (for real), and above all else: MINORITIES.
Yes, you heard right.
The point of his angry screed was that had the "liberals"not "forced" banks to lend to minorities, none of this would have even happened. He noted, in an petulant tone, that Janet Reno had threatened to, "bring the full force of the federal government," down on all those that did not comply. The horror!
That load of horseshit is not just that - it's the latest GOP talking points. Rush, and others, are attempting to place the blame squarely on "minorities" and the "liberals" who love them.
Barack Obama may be far from perfect, but anyone that is adherent to 'that guy' should never be elected President.
