    Looks like the new york time has taken Bushie to task and the Whitehouse has taken exception to it. Has Bush taken credit for a fu-kup because they far out number her successes.

    Living in the Midwest, I don't subscribe to the NYTimes. Do you have a link?

    It's not the first time.

    The Day the S.E.C. Changed The Rules


    This shouldn't really be a surprise. The assault on government oversight began with Ronald Reagan and went supernova under King George. Just government get out of the way and let business build wealth for one and all (mainly one). Now we have every business in the world lining up at the enemy's door which once was government for a handout.

    Another good one here
    Two Cheers for Rod Blagojevich.

    My favorite line:

    Once again, regulators slept. Once again, credit-rating agencies, typified this time by Moody’s, kept giving a thumbs-up to worthless paper until it was too late. There was just so much easy money to be made, and no one wanted to be left out. As Michael Lewis concludes in his brilliant account of “the end” of Wall Street in Portfolio magazine: “Something for nothing. It never loses its charm.”
    Also the Times has a whole series The Reckoning - Series - The New York Times

    This is one of the most biased and factually inaccurate articles I've read in a long time. That's 2 minutes of my life I will never get back. Unreal. NYTimes is moving into the tabloid industry if its not already there.

    Diddo. I read this article this morning and about pissed myself. This is why the NYT is slipping toward irrelevancy. What a crock of liberal shit.

    Facts do have a liberal bias
