No Slack

Alan Greenspan comes out with his book tomorrow but already the guts are on the street. What I want to know is how a major enabler of Bush and of everything that has gone wrong in the last 6 years gets off writing a book that blames everyone else? Greenspan enabled the tax cuts that sent the economy into a deficit of historic dimensions. Greenspan remained silent when the war for Iraqi oil was started. Greenspan had a mighty pulpit, he could move the global financial markets with a whisper and he could have alerted the American people to the financial disaster that Bush was creating. Greenspan should be jeered for his complicity in the nightmare we find ourselves in now, not cheered.

Granted he is evidently not kind to the Bush cabal in the book but he should take some responsibility for what he hath wrought.
