A Quick Favor to Ask

I have a favor to ask of any Obamapologist who might be reading this blog, concerning this current economic crisis and the meltdown of "Big Mortgage" that precipitated it.

If, as Obama stated unequivocally in last week's debate, this "crisis" is overwhelmingly the fault of the Bush Administration (and presumably his Republican allies in Congress, as well), can someone please send me some links to all the video clips and news articles showing President Bush or any Republican in Congress obstructing the efforts of Democrats to regulate and reel in these irresponsible, corrupt lenders?

By my calculations, assuming Obama are being truthful with the American people (hey, work with me here, people), there should be, at least, ten buttloads of such evidentiary items out there.

Because, there's certainly one buttload of video footage and news articles floating around now, that speak to the contrary, showing Republicans making repeated efforts to reform the way these lenders do business, only to be attacked by the Democrats who had been handsomely paid off by those folks driving Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into the ground.

OK, I'll make a deal with you.

Send me ONE such link.

And, sorry, but a canned speech by Barney Frank, given at a press conference in front of adoring, fawn-eyed media news crews doesn't count.
