So, who's really responsible?

Obama camp says Bush's policies are responsible for the DOW diving 500 points yesterday due to Lehman's bankruptcy, BoA purchase of Merril Lynch and the overtake of Freddie and Fannie.

Others say that Bush actually tried five years ago to avoid this mess altogether yet it was Democrats who blocked the legislation for fear it would hinder minority's chances of owning a home.

Personally, responsibility lies on both parties for this mess and I really do not enjoy them talking about economic disaster when they host fundraisers upwards of $20k per person and when Biden who makes 6 times my husband's and I salaries gives less to charity than I do.
