Your hero's sidekick said it was very, very intrusive before the 1/2 white guy became president.
Good thing for Harry Reid and Obama, himself, that he is actually more dark-skinned than light-skinned.

It has worked to his advantage. Just look at Lily. That's all she sees.

Fetch Allstupid is the real expert but you're learning. Heck, she's so psycotic that she complained to the moderators that I was responding to her posts despite the fact that she specifically requested that I not post to her....then she continues to post to me despite the fact that the moderators told her to stop her nonsense. You people are a real piece of work.
Translation:

I hate it when you non-libtards challenge my lies and ignorance. I want to be able to repeat the misleading propaganda I hear, read and repeat.

So I guess up until Obama came in to office they were sitting around twiddling their thumbs and/or possibly detaining a carrier pigeon or two for the last 60 years.
Quit obsessing over obama. Look at the big picture. They have a file on you. Why should they have a file on homer? What have you done?

And the bulk of those changes are at the personal level.

I smile when they do that. It tells me they don't have much of a leg to stand on.... facts or otherwise.

"During debate in the House of Representatives, Rep. John Dingell (Democrat of Michigan) argued that the bill would result in banks becoming "too big to fail." Dingell further argued that this would necessarily result in a bailout by the Federal Government.[4]"
This was one of the major flaws in the bill noted by the CRS.
"Crucial to the passing of this Act was an amendment made to the GLB, stating that no merger may go ahead if any of the financial holding institutions, or affiliates thereof, received a "less than satisfactory [sic] rating at its most recent CRA exam", essentially meaning that any merger may only go ahead with the strict approval of the regulatory bodies responsible for the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA).[16] This was an issue of hot contention, and the Clinton Administration stressed that it "would veto any legislation that would scale back minority-lending requirements." [17]"

AND here is the CRA amendment that Carol mentioned. She wasn't lying. The Bill made the regulatory body of the CRA a partner in deciding if banks could expand. Clinton himself said he would veto the bill if these low income loans were not made.
Go apologize to Carol

Information is power. Politicians are addicted to power. With todays technology, its like super heroin to someone like obama.
Even democratic strategists are saying once you lose the people's trust, it's virtually impossible to get it back.

This administration has to go. It's the only possible solution at this point to restore any measure of stability again.

We're limping along now only because the president is convienently hiding out overseas for the time being. But people on both sides are getting antsy for some answers and changes.

As I understand it, Holder has already been given a letter by a group of bipartsan congressmen to resign.

The House bill, the 2005 Federal Housing Finance Reform Act, would have created a stronger regulator with new powers to increase capital at Fannie and Freddie, to limit their portfolios and to deal with the possibility of receivership.
Mr Oxley reached out to Barney Frank, then the ranking Democrat on the committee and now its chairman, to secure support on the other side of the aisle. But after winning bipartisan support in the House, where the bill passed by 331 to 90 votes, the legislation lacked a champion in the Senate and faced hostility from the Bush administration.
Adamant that the only solution to the problems posed by Fannie and Freddie was their privatization, the White House attacked the bill. Mr Greenspan also weighed in, saying that the House legislation was worse than no bill at all.
Oxley isn’t too happy about all the criticism Congress is getting for letting Fannie and Freddie get too big.
“All the hand wringing and bedwetting is going on without remembering how the House stepped up on this,” he says.“What did we get from the White House? We got a one-finger salute.”

LOL. It all goes back to the fact that they are poor losers who looked like absolute fools after Obama's reelection. They just can't accept blame. Seems to be in their blood.

“Hurricane Sandy saved Barack Obama’s presidency.”

Obama “succeeded by suppressing the vote.”

Of course, in Dumbass Dave's world, they would never decide to become foreign corporations.
Why didn't they become foreign corporations when their foreign profits were taxed in the year they were earned?

Why are they still here regardless. According to you, they would jump ship to save a few % in corporation taxes.

So why are they still here?

If all you said was "Okay", then that would have been fine. You want to make this about obama. Obama just happens to be the guy with the power right now. I'll still be bitching about these tactics if they are happening in the next presidency no matter who is there. So quit acting stupid.

Obama doesn't know what to do other than push his domestic agenda of big government. Never has.
No one takes him seriously on the world stage. The majority of us don't either.
Why would it take the President of the United States nine days to respond to Iranian students protesting their Iranian oppressive regime and begging the outside world for support - even if just a statement of support?
No wonder the rest of the world thinks we're weak.
It's just too mindboggling how detached this man is as a leader.
Your yarns start early on Friday mornings ?
