Ownership Society

TPM has a video on a right-wing pivot on the financial meltdown: blaming past Democratic Presidents and minority home ownership.

I remember another fellow talking up an "Ownership Society" a few years ago:
To give every American a stake in the promise and future of our country, we will bring the highest standards to our schools, and build an ownership society. We will widen the ownership of homes and businesses, retirement savings and health insurance - preparing our people for the challenges of life in a free society. By making every citizen an agent of his or her own destiny, we will give our fellow Americans greater freedom from want and fear, and make our society more prosperous and just and equal.
Yes. That's George W. Bush's 2005 inauguration speech.
