Hey Dave, it's been a while since posting for me. I can see the moronic fanatical righties are still dwelling in idiotsville, while whining their pathetic asses off. Too funny. I was in hopes that by now those programmed minions would have all used their guns and last remaining brain cell for suicide. Just thinking about all of those morons packing weapons is scary.

Duhmmy.

Why we are where we are today:
1999 - Bill Clinton put CRA on steroids pushing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to increase number of sub-prime loans.
1999 - New York Times published an article “Fannie Mae Eases Credit to Aid Mortgage Lending” warning of coming crisis due to lax lending policies of the Clinton administration.
2003 - White House called Fannie and Freddie a “systemic risk” and Bush administration pushed Congress to enact new regulations.
2003 - Rep. Barney Frank said Fannie and Freddie are “not in a crisis,” bashed Republican-sponsored regulation legislation.
2005 - Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan voiced warning over F&F accounting, saying,“We are placing the total financial system of the future at a substantial risk.”
2005 - Sen. Charles Schumer said F&F “over the years have done an incredibly good job and are an intrinsic part of making America the best-housed people in the world.”
2006 - Sen. John McCain again called for reform of regulatory structure governing F&F. And again Democrats blocked reform legislation.
2008 - The housing market collapsed.
2008-Present - Democrats blamed the Republicans.
And inflation. Over forty years, housing market prices have increased times 19 in some areas. Not doubled, tripled or quadrupled, but ninteened. An economy spiraled to TOTALLY out of whack, fueled primarily by nothing more GREED, brought on by plague like waves of a LACK of ANYthing redemptive at the heart of Americas backbone no doubt!

Those who profited most by ignorning impending crisis:

1. Dodd, Christopher Senate (D)-$133,900
2. Kerry, John Senate (D)-$111,000.
3. Obama, Barack Senate (D)-$105,849.
4. Clinton, Hillary Senate (D)-$75,550.
5. Kanjorski, Paul (D)-$65,500.
6. Bennett, Robert Senate (R)-$61,499.
7. Johnson, Tim Senate (D)-$61,000.
8. Conrad, Kent Senate (D)-$58,991.
9. Davis, Tom House (R)-$55,499.
10. Bond, Christopher Senate (R)-$55,400.

Republicans 3 versus Democrats 7. President Barack Obama/former Senator Obama holding the #3 spot.

Anyone who continues to solely blame Republicans and chooses to ignore the role the Democrats played in this economic crisis is, well...either a simpleton or a fool.

Carol is an idiot.

Your claim that Vill Clinton put the CRA on steroids is jut too funny.
That bill, Graham, Bailey, Leach is the one where Republicans tore down the safeguards between banks & investment houses.

All Clinton did was insist that these new players in the mortgage business play by the same rules as the banks did as far as the CRA.

Where the uninformed like you get confused is that you think that all subprime loans are CRA loans. While CRA loans are subprime by definition they are not the loans that caused the mortgage meltdown.

Statistics show that the percentage of all loans that were CRA is about the same as the percentage of all failed loans that were CRA.

Bush Republican crash in Oct 2008 is what voters remembered when the turned their back on the republican candidate for president who polled an amusing 47%.
