You're right. What was I thinking? Let them die. A few hundred dead won't change the outcome of the election. That's all that matters now anyway, the election. Right? I say go ahead with the Marathon too. Just get the bodies and debris out of the way so the runners don't trip over stuff. That could result in a lawsuit against the city. Thank you for making sense out of it all. I certainly hope those stupid people on Staten Island have learned their lesson!

I nominate Mitt Romney as worst human being on earth.

Can I get a second?

(The blatant liar leaves 72 million uninsured! 20 million children! That is a crime against humanity.)

Sure it is if organizations like ACORN intimidated banks into making loans that were very high risk. Obama sued Citibank to make those kind of loans.
So the banks were doing home invasions and kidnappings to get those borrowers down to the local branch, I suppose...?

Just because something is legal doesn't mean you HAVE to do it.

It's that whole 'personal responsibility' thing...

Using that logic, the diplomats at Benghazi knew there was unrest there, yet they chose to go anyway. It's their own fault they were killed. Obama was right not to send help and risk more American lives to protect the Ambassador and the three others who made an unwise choice.

The Democrats led Americans to the worst recession since 1929 via the Community Restoration Act, a liberal idea that every one should be able to own a home even if they couldn't afford one.Problem is weird things happen when you can't pay your mortgage.
Bull.

The repeal of Glass-Steagal by the GOP Congress under Clinton would later spread the bad home loan crisis to the financial markets. But let's go the beginning of crisis.

Alan Greenspan lit the fuse with low interest rates.

Then Bush signed The American Dream Act passed by a GOP majority which greatly eased the 10% downpayment obstacle.

The banks themselves made bad loans. They were "bad" because the banks themselves set them up that way. They knew the borrower would default, in which case the bank would keep the payments and own a more valuable house in what at that time was a rising market.

The FBI warned Congressional leaders in 2004 of an impending financial disaster.

And how did the Repubilcan majority act? They did nothing.

That a handful of Democrat senators and congressmen acted on behalf of the banks hardly absolves the GOP Congress from an incredible display of negligence.

Furthermore, when the Dems regained the majority in 2007, one of the first things they did was to rein in home loans. But by then, the damage was done and the dam getting ready to burst.

Elephants busted again.

Why are you a drunk? Scratch that - I don't give a popcorn fart in a windstorm why you're a drunk. That's your business.

Obama is either a Kenyan, an Indonesian, an admissions-fraud perpetrator, a really bad student, or has decided his school records are none of your business.

None of which was proven before he went on the Presidential ballot, Congress having had a year to dig.

Get over it.
