"Among his biggest strokes of free-wheeling capitalism was the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, which repealed the Glass-Steagall Act, a cornerstone of Depression-era regulation. He also signed the Commodity Futures Modernization Act, which exempted credit-default swaps from regulation. In 1995 Clinton loosened housing rules by rewriting the Community Reinvestment Act, which put added pressure on banks to lend in low-income neighborhoods. It is the subject of heated political and scholarly debate whether any of these moves are to blame for our troubles, but they certainly played a role in creating a permissive lending environment."

The poster, Yeah, is apparently upset by this. He thinks someone repealed something that changed the loosening of housing rules when Clinton rewrote the CRA. Or something. Not sure what. He keeps it a secret.

In a 2011 New Yorker article, journalist Jane Mayer wrote that Drake felt the NSA was committing serious crimes against the American people on a level worse than what president Nixon had done in the 1970s.

When President Barack Obama took office, he championed the cause of government transparency and spoke admiringly of whistle-blowers. But the Obama Administration has pursued leak prosecutions with a surprising relentlessness including the Drake case using the Espionage Act to press criminal charges in five alleged instances of national security leaks more such prosecutions than have occurred in all previous Administrations combined.

It actually did start with Clinton. But the liberal media successfully brainwashed liberals into believing the housing market collapse and the ensuing economic crisis was "Bush's recession".

The majority of Democrats in the Senate voted for the resolution to use military force in Iraq, but liberals were brainwashed into believing it was "Bush's war".

The liberal media needs a lot more scrutiny. They are misleading many Americans.
