Reid, in his Nevada election bid, seems to have morphed into Joe Biden. Today, he said the economic downturn was not his fault.
"I had nothing to do with the massive foreclosures here. [snip] I don't have any hand in what took place during the Bush administration. I tried to rein that in."He, along with Pelosi, was one of the driving forces of Obamaism. Reid has never met a government program he did not like and support.
This recession has government-causes at it core. Liberal economic policies that ignore sound economics caused and continue to prolong the downturn. Reid is leading the way with burdensome Congressional programs and taxes.
Until the government spends and taxes less, the economy will flounder. Reid will continue to support the recession, but blame it on past administrations (which he was core to).
