It's all here davey, open your eyes and see the truth:

"agencies would have to lower their standards in terms of such things as down payments and the required incomes. These subprime borrowers would be charged a higher interest rate. Having put the lending agencies into the position of granting subprime mortgages Fannie Mae then had to accept lower standards in the mortgages it purchased. That set the ball rolling. If a bank granted a mortgage to a borrower that was not likely to successfully pay off the mortgage then all the bank had to do was to sell such mortgages to Fannie Mae. The banks typically earned a loan origination fee when the mortgage was granted. The lending agencies could then make substantial profits dealing in subprime mortgages."

The banks and mortgage cos. didn't give a shit, F and F[read the taxpayers} was on the hook for the defaults.

No bank is going to loan millions and billions if their money is on the line.

Wise up.

But that doesn't mean his reason was because he was confessing.
Or because he was guilty of committing the crime.
You should look at yourself. You're a paranoid mess.
You see demons, devils, and racists in every white face.
Aint no way to go through life. And basically, you're a coward.
You're only getting mouthy now because, well one you're drunk, and you think debil, dem are going to come to your rescue. HA!
I'll still drill you a new concept, you a$$ kisser.

Yes, I Am A Legend In My Own Time.
Yes, look at me. I stood up and defended My Husband.
While you, suck a$$, allowed him and yourself to be dawged.
You call it, better than. I consider you less than.

Bragging? If I had to choose one of the two, I'd say letting it be known he doesn't fck around. And don't fck with me kinda guy.
But certainly no confession or sign of guilt. That's your warped mind talkin'... Which is a fawkin' mess.

Ok, time for a little nostalgia:

Republican minority leader admits that he handed out tobacco industry bribes on the floor of the House of Representatives in order to secure subsidies for an industry that kills 443,000 Americans every year.

Republican Minority Leader John Boehner explains why he handed out bribes on the House floor

even conservatives like Bruce Bartlett blame Bush and Bruce called it right and 2008 is when chickens came home to roost.

BRUCE BARTLETT: Bankrupt America? Yes, I think that we have had something like a $20 trillion increase in the national debt under this president's watch and I think that one of these days, I don't know when, but one of these days, the chickens are going to come home to roost.

Bruce Bartlett

Bruce Reeves Bartlett (b. October 11, 1951, in Ann Arbor, Michigan) is an American historian whose area of expertise is supply-side economics. He served as a domestic policy adviser to President Ronald Reagan and as a Treasury official under President George H. W. Bush.

Bartlett has written several books and magazine articles critical of the George W. Bush Administration, whose economic policies he believes significantly depart from traditional conservative principles.

Medicare Part D was a mistake, but would have been passed eventually by the Democrats. The cost of Part D is trivial compared to Obamacare.

Now, do you want to dwell on the mistakes of the past or attack current problems?

WASHINGTON -- When Mitt Romney served as CEO of Bain & Co., his consulting firm helped tobacco giant Philip Morris develop a groundbreaking sales strategy that researchers say has been linked to an unprecedented spike in youth smoking. On Friday April 2, 1993, Philip Morris stunned Wall Street and tobacco experts by the slashing price on its flagship Marlboro brand by 40 cents a pack, to $1.80. It was a landmark day for the tobacco industry, one that became known as "Marlboro Friday" to public health experts.

The country is in bad shape, has been in bad shape and these educated idiots in the elite classes and the LSM somehow think things are going to get better with the same man in charge?

Never has a more stupid class of people walked this planet than the white American liberal. They would destroy this country to protect their twisted ideology.

Bruce Bartlett, whoever he is, clearly has trouble with the facts in blaming Bush when the national debt is "only" $15 trillion,$5 trillion of which and counting belongs to Obama.

We voted for President Obama to maintain balance in the Supreme Court. The people voted; they spoke; they won over the corporations.

No one is interested in your one lone lunatic, he's boring, he doesn't count, even the LSM and the fascist elites don't care about him, I'm certainly going to ignore him.

Is Bush president? Has he been president for the last 4 years?

What does this have to do with our present situation?

443,000? Not 442,000 or 444,000?

A precise claim like that for something that is not directly measurable is BS on the surface.

How much did the taxpayers pay some college professor to invent that number?

CALL:

No, sonic thought I was a man. You told him I was a Woman.

Remember? Or were you too drunk to recall?

Can't recall calling me "Sista'" either?

That was in the post thanking me for exposing Dow Chemicals and Monsanto for the Agent Orange that killed your brother.

See, I remember everything. Because I don't lie.
And because I have an excellent memory.
It comes with Higher Intelligence.
I also have a photographic memory.
Just statement of facts.
Also, I don't pollute my brain with substances.
So when you lie, I'll be callin' it.

UH-HUH ... ONLY LIE WHEN YOU CAN COVER IT.

Nice try. Bad lie. Foolish girl.
