No tax money going there? No political appointees? Federal Reserve private? Just where do they get the authority to hand out $85 billion a month to banks and WS?

The mess that Fannie Mae has become is the progeny of many parents: Congress, which created Fannie in 1938 and loaded it down with responsibilities; President Lyndon Johnson, who in 1968 pushed it halfway out the government nest and into a problematic part-private, part-public role in an attempt to reduce the national debt; and Jim Johnson, who presided over Fannie's spectacular growth in the 1990s. But it was Johnson's successor, Raines, who was at the helm when things really went off course. A former Clinton Administration Budget Director, Raines was the first African-American CEO of a Fortune 500 company when he took the helm in 1999. He left in 2004 with the company embroiled in an accounting scandal just as it was beginning to make big investments in subprime mortgage securities that would later sour. Last year Fannie and rival Freddie Mac became wards of the state.

Dood/Frank has been a disaster, as Oblama's home refinace scheme once again puts taxpayers to foot the bill again, it doesn't matter anyway.

Southern Strategy: The race question has haunted Reagan and the GOP for decades
The same could be said, of course, about such Republican heroes as, Barry Goldwater, Richard Nixon or George Bush the elder, all of whom used coded racial messages to lure disaffected blue collar and Southern white voters away from the Democrats. Yet it's with Reagan, who set a standard for exploiting white anger and resentment rarely seen since George Wallace stood in the schoolhouse door, that the Republican's selective memory about its race-baiting habit really stands out.

No tears for Reagan

Excuse me if I don’t shed any tears over the passing of former President Ronald Reagan. While the news of the 40th president’s death brought on a flood of sentimentality over the nation’s media this past weekend, I could not help but recall what the Reagan presidency really meant for Black Americans. Similar to what occurred upon the death of Richard Nixon, amnesia has set upon journalists as they recall Reagan’s era; choosing to indulge in idol worship rather than serious reflection on the former president’s policies.

Turn around is fair play. The Democrat controlled Senate refused to vote on House bills to extend the individual mandate and now they want the Republican controlled House to vote on THEIR bill? I say NO!!! They made their bed and now they need to sleep in it!!!

It is really sad that you can not see your own racism. Republicans do not show preferences based on race and you interpret that as racism when in fact ANY racial set-asides is a form of racism.

France is already within range of Iranian missiles. All the Iranians need to do is put a nuclear warhead on them.

So glad you're not in gov't or running anything. France has 2,000 nuclear-armed missiles for a possible-in-5-years Iranian ONE. The US has thousands of missiles/nuclear bombs to Iran's possible-in-5-years ONE. Missile shield? What the hell are you talking about?

You prefer talking to the Iranians, along with your allies or you prefer the hostility and cold war with Iran and you want it to last forever?

What if everything they proposed was wrong, destructive and counter productive? How many republican votes did Oblamkare get? Something less than 1 if memory serves me well.
Where was that bi partisanship?

The sad truth is that today's Tepublicans are so extreme and obstructive, were Reagan running today they would brand him a RINO.
so extreme how? By wanting reasonable taxes, less federal government and less obscene federal spending? By wanting more to pull their own weight?
Extreme like that?
Isn't $500 billion a year in welfare a bit excessive?
