Karl Rove lays it out, how the Dems and Obama caused the housing crisis and the Republicans tried to stop it.
Way to go, Karl! (emphasis is mine)
We started in 2001 to try and reign in Fannie and Freddie. We spent four years doing it. We got a bill through the Senate Finance Committee on a party line vote to reign in Fannie and Freddie in 2005 and one of the first things Barack Obama did when he came in to the United States senate was, because he was the third largest recipient of Fannie and Freddie money he joined a filibuster of every democrat led by Senator Chris Dodd to block that measure from being brought to the floor of the United States Senate. Three years later in September 2008 President Obama, then candidate Obama, voted for the same bill he could have voted for three years ago after Fannie and Freddie collapsed. So don’t tell me that we didn’t try to do something during the Bush years to reign in the housing problem. We were the people who said let us subject Fannie and Freddie to the same kind of scrutiny that we subject banks, savings and loans and credit unions and it was candidate Obama who refused to join that effort, that would have kept this from being an accelerant to a worldwide financial crisis.
King Obama to Congress: “write the legislation I want, or else I will simply enact it by decree” – Atlas Shrugs
Ok, if this happens can we FINALLY start working on impeaching him? He is now bypassing the Congress and forcing his cap-and-trade requirements without legislation.
To explain in summary, because there is such strong opposition to his “Cap-And-Trade” tax that it probably will not pass, Obama has decided to order the EPA to enforce it anyway. As justification for doing this, he is using the Clear Air Act, which does not cover any of the rules he is putting in place.
This is a blatant bypassing of the checks and balances of the Constitution. The president is granting himself powers beyond what the existing acts allow. Chavez did this sort of thing, not a US President.
It looks like President Obama, facing the failure of his domestic agenda in Congress, is now going to attempt to pull out a victory by threatening Congress with the usurpation of its legislative powers. How? The administration has announced plans to impose sweeping controls on emissions of carbon dioxide by executive fiat, through the EPA, bypassing the legislature altogether.
As I warned early this year,
Under what system of government does the chief executive say to the legislature, in effect, “write the legislation I want, or else I will simply enact it by decree”? The answer: not under a system of representative government and the separation of powers. Barack Obama is proposing to govern, not in the manner of an American president, but in the manner traditionally sought by leftist strongmen like Hugo Chavez.
We’ve now arrived at that point. This is another step toward the Obama Banana Republic.
The Obama’s prove once again that they make up reality as they go… Or she lived in a REALLY creepy family

UPDATE: A reader, AK, pointed out ,quite correctly, that my math sucks and I put a wrong date for the 1976 Olympics. I corrected them. I blame racism.
Ok, here is the quote:
Some of my best memories are sitting on my dad’s lap, cheering on Olga and Nadia, Carl Lewis, and others for their brilliance and perfection.
Now, let’s take a look at this.
Michelle Obama was born in 1964.
Olga Korbut, was in the Olympics in 1968, 1972, and 1976, when Michelle was 4, 8, and 12. Makes sense.
Nadia Elena Comăneci made her perfect 10 as a gymnast in 1976 and competed again in 1980. Michelle was 12 and 16. Getting odd.
Carl Lewis was in his first Olympics in 1984. Michelle, a 20 year old woman, was sitting on her dad’s lap cheering. Ummm… that’s really odd.
Obviously, she left Princeton University to head home to just for the occasion.
