Barack Obama, our next President

The Government-Created Subprime Mortgage Meltdown

by Thomas J. DiLorenzo

The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria.

The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.

So-called "community groups" like ACORN benefit themselves from the CRA through a process that sounds like legalized extortion. The CRA is enforced by four federal government bureaucracies: the Fed, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The law is set up so that any bank merger, branch expansion, or new branch creation can be postponed or prohibited by any of these four bureaucracies if a CRA "protest" is issued by a "community group." This can cost banks great sums of money, and the "community groups" understand this perfectly well. It is their leverage. They use this leverage to get the banks to give them millions of dollars as well as promising to make a certain amount of bad loans in their communities.

<quoted text>can you picture Moochelle doing anything humanitarian where her salary wasn't mysteriously doubled overnight? without an entourage of her 100 best friends and mother? the difference is if Obama & Moochelle lifted a pinky when his presidency is up, the media would cover it even more than they talk about the Kardashians. but we barely heard what George & Laura were doing regarding their anti-aids work in Africa.
We can thank the propagandists for keeping Bush's humanitarian efforts off the front page. There wasn't enough room with all the other progaganda. They only cheer for the Weasel Team.

The Department of "Injustice", Eric Holder, made sure the FBI were forced to step back from getting any more information from the Boston bomber. He read him his Miranda rights personally.

Before Mr. Holder told the terrorist he had the right to remain silent, however, the FBI did discover there were 6 more bombs prepared to go off in Times Square.

Too bad we will never learn of any other plots that might have been under way.

If Obama wasn't President__someone else would be you stupid fk and it would be John McCain or Sarah Palin.

Unless of course they had already been impeached___due to incompetence.

The majority of America's voters were "so over" BushCo and the Republican right that they selected a little known black feller with a funny name and a guy who spent thirty five years as the Jr Senator from a state with only three counties?

And the USA is much better off for it.

Aunt Bettie Lou, You've got things backwards,dude. It was the Democratic Congress that pushed Bush W to pursue the more bi-partisan African AIDS policy AFTER Bush W's early actions to reinstate Reagan's Mexico City gag rules and cuts in funding to prevent AIDS made the situation worse. Check this out: http://thinkprogress.org/politics/2013/04/25/... "On Bush’s first day in office he reinstated a rule that prevented any non-profit doing work overseas from using any of their own, private money to fund family planning services. This so-called “Global Gag Rule” posed a serious threat to international maternal health, but it also cut off funding for HIV/AIDS initiatives, child health programs, and water and sanitation efforts."

I am of the opinion of Bush as a failure of a president and I believe that history will judge him so, but after hearing his speech yesterday he has earn a bit of sympathy from me for basically making a mess of the nation.
Perhaps history will judge him as a well intention man that lacked the judgement to make good choices. Better to be see as an idiot with a heart than a evil mastermind.
There's no way one man could have made a mess of the nation.

It was a joint effort.

Trust me.

So what, in your opinion, do you think he did single-handedly to make a "mess of the nation" that Obama or Clinton and the Democrats didn't do or share in the responsibility?

Aunt Bettie Lou, "Funny though how you want to insist this effort as being bipartisan and not the Iraq War. " You are forgetting that the Iraq War intervention by Bush W WAS NOT bi-partisan once Bush was found to have lied about WMDs in Iraq . He rushed to judgement based on a pack of lies and got us into a war that we never needed to fight.
Oh, hush. You sound like a friggin' broken record replaying the weasels whining "boo hoo...we were lied to...boo hoo...we were left out of the loop...boo hoo...we're too stupid to know we were given the same intel as the rest of the world...boo hoo hoo hoo hoo..."
