Clinton had the rules re -written at fannie and freddie to allow or force them to take sub prime mortgages, thus opening the floodgates and of course resulting in the taxpayers bailing them out to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars.
In addition, lenders were coerced and threatened with federal retribution if they didn't start making subprime loans.
I agree, plenty of blame to go around and no one punished, certainly not by Obama's administration. I still maintain without government meddling and coercion this never would have happened.
The result was perfectly foreseeable.
Bsnks were never forced to make bad loans.

When will you f*cking Dumbasss Right Whiners ever blame your own GD party for the eonomic mess they created under you hero George W Bush.

"CRA CRA CRA OMG OMG OMG" You people get dumber every f*cking day.

Lincoln was an idiot. They say he tried to negotiate, but I doubt he tried very hard. The nmoron thought the war would be a piece of cake but being a "lawyer", he was clueless about practicle matters. The slaves ended up suffering anyways and the war didn't really end until 10 years after it technically ended.
Most people don't know this but Lincoln was a gay boy and liked to sleep with men. Too bad John Wilkes Booth waited so long.
HEY STUPID! The South seceded in January of 1861; four months before Lincoln was even inaugurated. They weren't interested in any negotiations dimwit.
Your assertion that he was gay is totally without any shred of evidence liar .
You're an idiot Jimmy and a totally repugnant excuse for a human being.

Topic Reminder Service

Waterbury, CT

#860380 Feb 17, 2013
Topic Reminder Service (TRS) is a publicly-funded non-political organization founded to update Forum Users with accurate factual reminders. This particular Topic could be - indeed has been - deemed out-of-date or "dead" since November 4th, 2008. However, persuant of common OPINION, it has remained one of the more-popular Topix to this day. At this point in time, over four years after the topic's origin and considering none of the facts will change for another four years (making for an estimated eight-year lifecycle), TRS is presenting the following reminders of FACT-

Barack Hussein Obama II is the 44th and current President of the United States. He is the first African American to hold the office. Obama is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he was president of the Harvard Law Review.

Born in Honolulu, Hawaii USA on August 4, 1961, he served three terms representing the 13th District in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004, running unsuccessfully for the United States House of Representatives in 2000.

He began his first presidential campaign in 2007, defeating Republican nominee John McCain in the general election, and was inaugurated as president on January 20, 2009. Nine months later, Obama was named the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

Obama was re-elected president in November 2012, defeating Republican nominee Mitt Romney. He is the first two-term Democrat POTUS since Franklin D. Roosevelt to win two presidential elections with a majority of the popular vote. During his second inaugural address on January 21, 2013, Obama called for full equality for gays: "Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law- for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well."

On February 17, 2009, Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, a $787,000,000,000 economic stimulus package aimed at helping the economy recover from the deepening worldwide recession, thereby continuing an economic aid policy first instituted under the preceding (Republican) President George W. Bush.

Domestic policy items include the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act AKA Obama Care, signed into law on March 23, 2010. Barack Obama appointed two women to serve on the Supreme Court in the first two years of his Presidency. Sonia Sotomayor, nominated by Obama on May 26, 2009, was confirmed on August 6, 2009, becoming the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice. Elena Kagan, nominated by Obama on May 10, 2010, was confirmed on August 5, 2010, bringing the number of women sitting simultaneously on the Court to three, for the first time in American history.

On January 16, 2013 President Obama outlined a series of sweeping gun control proposals, urging Congress to reintroduce an expired ban on "military-style" assault weapons, impose limits on ammunition magazines to 10 rounds, introduce background checks on all gun sales, pass a ban on possession and sale of armor-piercing bullets, as well as additional measures.

Notable foreign policy items include the draw-down of troops in Afghanistan and the end of military operations in Iraq as of August 31, 2010. On March 16, 2011, he authorized the U.S. Military to engage in air strikes against Libya's governmental air defense capabilities in order to protect civilians and enforce a no-fly zone. On May 1, 2011, Obama authorized a "surgical raid" by United States Navy SEALs in Abbottabad, Pakistan, resulting in the death of international terrorist and al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and the seizure of papers, computer drives and disks from bin Laden's compound.

I want to take some time out now to make a serious post. Most of you know me as "NWaxman" (Waxturds,the chubby teabagger from Connecticut), but I'm so much more than that. I'm caring, I'm giving, I'm sensual. Its just that as I get older and fatter, things have slowed down quite a bit for me. A couple of years ago you'd have never caught me posting for 12 straight hours because the phone would ring 5-6 times a night (and it'd be a different dude every time!!!). Now, I'm lucky if the janitor knocks on my door for a quickie after cleaning the community toilets. I guess what I'm REALLY saying is..... I need friends (lovers too!!). I'll do literally anythng to earn your trust, and you can mop up the floor with me six ways from Sunday.

FreedomWorks Is "Freaking Out" Over the Giant-Panda-Hillary-Clinton-Se x Video

http://www.motherjones.com/mojo/2013/02/freed...

"Funny thing is that if they actually had shown the video at the event, most of the audience would have been cheering and clapping. And then it would have gone viral on Fox. Come to think of it, what is Fox's take on this?"

"Oh I'm quite sure Faux News is doing its normal thing and pretending that the video doesn't exist."

Increasing the minimum wage during a depression with high unemployment is insanity.
Since when are we in a depression dumbass? Private sector economic indicators are all going in the right direction and we've had over three years of private sector job growth.
Raising the minimum wage will put more money into workers pockets and they'll spend it creating a greater demand for goods and services which the suppliers will have to meet by increasing production and hiring people to meet it. Lower wages insures a stagnant market and slow or stalled economic growth.
You're an idiot!

Have you ever seen a president crying on television before Obama? In my 48 years I cannot remember ever seeing a president-commander in chief balling on tv soooo many times. Regardless of events/trajedies someone has to be the backbone of the country. Evidently that would be Hillary and Bill Clinton. Is there any way Bill Clinton can take over office now or in next election?

Lets put money into the economy not through private enterprise but rather thru government subsidized actions through unfunded tax cuts/tax credits that add to the debt.

Tea Party Florida governor Rick Scott's 2013 budget proposal is 4 billion dollars higher than last years and higher than the states projected income. Scott now favors generous teacher raises and increased funding for education. My oh my he must be planning to run for reelection.

In other Florida news the Florida Highway Patrol say's it will not enforce the new Florida law that requires tourists from abroad, even Canada, to possess an international drivers license in order to drive, rent cars etc. The legislators didn't think such a law would affect tourism___LMAO.
