Look it up yourself. Here are a few tips.
Start your search with the "repeal of the Glass-Steagall in 1999" replaced by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act.
Assuming you know how to Google, then search "expansion of the CRA in 1995" by the Clinton Administration urging lending flexibility by banks. Critics also blame President Carter for enacting the CRA in 1977 in the first place.
And then if you really want to complete your search, type in "critics blame 1995 changes to CRA" relaxing lending standards as the beginning of crisis.
You won't find any of this information on any liberal media source. So don't waste your time looking at propaganda.
This is an example of the kind of informative websites you want to search.

President Bush Signs American Dream Downpayment Act of 2003

One of the biggest hurdles to homeownership is getting money for a down payment. This administration has recognized that, and so today I'm honored to be here to sign a law that will help many low-income buyers to overcome that hurdle, and to achieve an important part of the American Dream.

http://georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/ne...

Under one of the initiatives launched by Freddie Mac, consumers with poor credit will be able to obtain mortgages with interest rates that automatically decline after a period of consistent payments, he added.

http://archives.cnn.com/2002/ALLPOLITICS/06/1...

so let's see...what do you think would happen if you gave those with low income jobs with bad credit records the money that will help them buy a home?

someone really put some thought into that....

"There is no question we did not recognize the severity of the problems," said Al Hubbard, Bush's former chief economic adviser, who left the White House in December 2007. "Had we, we would have attacked them."

Looking back, Keith Hennessey, Bush's current chief economic adviser, said he and his colleagues had done the best they could "with the information we had at the time." But Hennessey did say he regretted that the administration had not paid more heed to the dangers of easy lending practices.

And both Paulson and his predecessor, John Snow, say the housing push went too far.

"The Bush administration took a lot of pride that home ownership had reached historic highs," Snow said during an interview. "But what we forgot in the process was that it has to be done in the context of people being able to afford their house. We now realize there was a high cost."

Capitalism UNCHECKED was responsible for the mortgage crisis.
……. Obama is addressing ….. The Price Of Inequality…..
People from around the world heard the shot that crippled the financial markets. Shot originated from our Wall Street! Suspects were the Banks to big at fail.
Years of 2007 to 2008 exposed the flaw of the means and ways the USA defined their GDP. Foreign nations discovered that Inequality measurements were not represented.!
.. Symphonizing of the siphoning of wealth from the improvised lower classes to be horded by the 1% minority. Orchestrating with fine attentive desires of greed. Filling their coffers’ treasuries and outsourcing their horde for safe keeping from the Tax distributing environment of their beloved nation.
Melodies of bankruptcy erupted across the nation for over 8 million families homes. Tuning with increasing unemployment. Enveloping all within the finical ballroom. Students waltzing with tens’ of thousand of debt with no work available. Alas as the bell tolled for them at midnight, as they returned to their homeless rewards.
Millions more would soon accompany them with lost savings and defunct pensions. Safety nets that once retained them from such desolation, were sold to the highest bidder of their political domains. Employers with base operatic singing calling for the forced retirement to the improvised laborers.
Americans dreams of secured homes sold for less than its hard earned purchase. Vacancy was the norm through out the nation. Disrepair and lost of upkeep to properties festered on the infrastructures of a once proud majestic nation.
After shocks from the Great Recession will continue to affect this molding Nation until at least 2018 before complete repairs can be considered accomplished. The Price Of Inequality was merely illuminated for a brief moment in time, by the Great Recession. Inequality has been eroding this nation for over a century. Inequality in the past 40 years has accelerated similar to the years before the 1929 Great Depression with similar results.
Within the bastions of the wealthy 1%, the symphony played on. Rejoicing in the price of inequality. Distributions of wealth being divided up with the 1% receiving one fifth of the nations income with the largest share to be rewarded to the 0.1% to the tune of 33% of the national income would be transferred to their coffers due to their wealth of assets. Some of which is rent control of national resources, politics and of course the media. Some assigned to continuously orchestrate the tunes of A La Propaganda.
…Tunes that are required to distract any observation of siphoning as was occurring during the years of 2002 to 2007, to the tune of 63% of the National Income to the 1%.
….Alas had this been more evenly distributed the ballroom would still be overflowing with celebrations of prosperity for one and all.
WOW

O'bama change does not equate to Hope. But but the Moslems around the world love us, say the liberals and democrats. And O'bama was giving the terrorists arms in Libya, what's there not to like? he's probably afraid that the same weapons he gave to the moslem terrorists are now going to be used on American embassies. O'bama is unable to govern. He needs to go to the Hamptons and never come back to the White House.

A growing rift within republican party is widening into a chasm! From the depths will their come rebirth or desolation?
Chasm widens. Will this give birth to the Progressive Grand Old Party?
Senator Ted Cruz {R Tea Party} from Texas has launched his desires for the 2016 presidenticy as has Marco Rubio {R Tea Party} of Florida.
Cruz has revealed as he says “ A dirty little secret, republicans {traditionalist} would like very much to cast a symbolic vote against raising the debt ceiling and nonetheless to allow our democrat friends on the left side of the aisle to raise the debt ceiling.”
Mike Lee {R Tea Party} and Ted Cruz prefer the hostage/ransom method to block any progress of the Congress. John McCain {R Traditional} disagrees as this will inflame the scenario of an up and down vote by the democrats. Who will then expand that to all Key issues.
Democrats begin to set the stage. Complaining of how the republicans are blocking or delaying confirmation of top White House nominees. Including Federal Judges. Accusing a small group are abusing their powers to block actions for our Congress to proceed with the governing of our Nation.
The Chasm Widens…
What's the big deal? Biden ran against O'bama the light skinned negro-Hillary ran against O'bama while Bill Clinton was saying that just a few years ago he would have been a slave bringing us coffee and See gars. O'bama doesn't know how to govern. He says stupid crap like he is going to shut the government down. I wish he could. Don't you?

Refresh all our memories doll__your history has a few empty spots. Where did you teach school? For how long?

I don't recall you living in a larger city. Matter of fact going back even to the thread we met up on your past seems small town until you found your way to Orlando.

You don't seem to know very much about Florida's education system.

BTW the Florida commissioner of education, Tony Bennett resigned yesterday due to some stupid stunt he pulled on his last gig in Indiana. Why is it that Florida's governors bring commissioners in from states like Indiana and Oklahoma only to have them resign in short order.

I don't think those guys are progressives, do you?

"More than three-quarters of the Senate Republican caucus signed onto legislation introduced Wednesday by Sens. Tom Coburn (R-OK) and Rand Paul (R-KY) that could render it virtually impossible for Congress to enact any legislation intended to improve working conditions or otherwise regulate the workplace. Had their bill been in effect during the Twentieth Century, for example, there would likely be no nationwide minimum wage, no national ban on workplace discrimination, no national labor law and no overtime in most industries."

President George W. Bush cautioned against criticizing gay couples, saying in an interview on “This Week” that you shouldn’t criticize others “until you’ve examined your own heart.”
Bush had waded into the revitalized same-sex marriage debate last week - if only barely - in a comment to a reporter in Zambia, who asked whether gay marriage conflicts with Christian values.
“I shouldn’t be taking a speck out of someone else’s eye when I have a log in my own,” Bush said last week.
In an interview in Tanzania with ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl, the former president explained his comment further.
“I meant it’s very important for people not to be overly critical of someone else until you’ve examined your own heart,” Bush told Karl.
As president, Bush opposed gay marriage, and Republicans pushed ballot measures to ban it at the state level. The topic has seen rejuvenated discussion after the Supreme Court overturned the federal ban on same-sex marriage, the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
On another hot political topic – immigration – Bush said he thinks a major reform bill “has a chance to pass.” In 2007, Bush sought to pass an immigration bill similar to what’s been proposed in Congress this year, seeking to provide citizenship opportunity for undocumented immigrants already living in the U.S.
” I think it’s very important to fix a broken system, to treat people with respect. And have confidence in our capacity to assimilate people,” Bush said on “This Week.“It’s a very difficult bill to pass because there’s a lot of moving parts… But it looks like they’re making some progress.”
Bush said immigration is important to pass “to fix a system that’s broken,” not to improve the Republican Party’s political standing among Latino voters.
“Good policy yields good politics, as far as I’m concerned,” Bush said.

After being a substitute teacher for one year in Illinois, I taught in local schools in smaller towns in Central Florida after moving back to my hometown.
I've mentioned once before that I was one of only two teachers in my school asked to be a "supervising teacher" for a student intern from a nearby college. I learned very quickly the colleges in Florida are part of the problem. But don't get me started on that subject. Also, I was what was then called a "peer teacher".
Liberal politics - even in my relatively small school districts - drove me out of the teaching profession.
And a lot more just like me were itching to get out - the good teachers, I might add.
I loved the "art of teaching" but I've never looked back. Not once. Even two decades ago, liberalism and political correctness in the smaller school districts where I taught was in full swing. I've long since kicked that dust off my sandals and moved on.
But the public schools in the cities are like circuses every single day. I know this first-hand. Even tried to do something about the one I knew about just because it was so bad.
Have you ever taught in a public school?
Teaching is tough and most people can't do it.
