Who is responsible?

It is said that the two standard Russian questions are: “Who is responsible?” and “What are we going to do?” It seems, not only Russian. It is also said that Russia is full of two things: roads and idiots. Maybe not only Russia.

To continue the question of the earlier post, who is really responsible for the current economic state of affairs? One opinion says: those that encouraged people to borrow against their means, and when those people screwed up, encouraged them some more.

This series of cartoons says the same thing (without pointing out the source of the situation... you guessed it: the liberals who felt bad for people with low income and bad credit history who couldn’t afford to take mortgage).
