This is John Boehner, Republican House Minority Leader in response to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer bringing up the connection between deregulation of the financial industries and the present situation. How these bastards can just lie like this about something so important and do it just to try and regain power is utterly befuddling. How do these people sleep at night? And how does the media so easily and so commonly play along without jumping on the throats of people like Boehner?
Wolf, you have to understand, there was no deregulation of anything in the financial services industries. As a matter of fact, there was an increase in regulation.
