While watching CNBC this a.m., Squaw on the Street's Mark Haines, talking to NBC's John Harwood, says the Republicans and George Bush are responsible for "driving the economy over the cliff".

Now read my email response:
"Would someone there please remind Mark Haines and John Harwood the DEMOCRATS regained control of BOTH the House and the Senate in 2006. Therefore, if my math is correct, the Democrats have been in control of Congress and this economy for FOUR years. Granted, a lot of Republicans are complicit in the crap that has emanated from Congress since 2006 (earmarks, etc), but the toss off line “the Republicans have driven the economy off the cliff” just doesn’t cut it with me or a lot of others folks I suspect. How about criticism for Harry Reid, Chris Dodd, Nancy Pelosi and Barney Frank? In my opinion, they have more culpability for the financial mess than GWB."
If you feel the same as I do, let them know at CNBC. Here is the email link for Squawk on the Street: 'firstname.lastname@example.org'
