Barack Obama, our next President

You know, Rand Paul makes a lot of sense to me.
Of course Rand Paul makes sense to you Carol. Did you know that he sponsored legislation in the Senate that would prohibit the federal government from enforcing child labor, employee safety and wage and hour laws? That's going to play well with the folks. Fortunately unlike the House the Senate is run by the sane and this piece of garbage will never see the light of day.
So you really want Rand Paul to head the Republican ticket in 2016? I think I can safely speak for all Democrats and say we really, really, really, oh please God want him there.

"Bank of America settles loan dispute with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the financial giants whose failed mortgage investments made them wards of the government, have accepted $2.8 billion from Bank of America to largely put to rest claims that the bank sold them faulty loans.

Bank of America settles loan dispute with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac
Bank stocks fall again
Bank of America hit with setback in MBIA Insurance mortgage liability lawsuit
The cost to Bank of America was less than the potential blow some investors had expected, and the bank's stock rose 6.4 percent on the news Monday.
For Bank of America, the settlements eliminate "a doomsday scenario," said analyst Paul Miller of FBR Capital Markets.

"This is a gift" from the government to the bank, said Christopher Whalen of Institutional Risk Analytics. "We're all paying for this because it will show up in the losses from Fannie and Freddie," he said.
The deal with Fannie Mae is not airtight; it leaves open the possibility that Fannie could pursue additional claims against Bank of America. In contrast, the settlement with Freddie Mac essentially closes the book on pending and potential claims.
The Federal Housing Finance Agency, which oversees Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, approved the settlements. In a statement, the agency said the deals were "consistent with market practice and FHFA's conservatorship responsibilities."
Fannie spokeswoman Janis Smith called it a "fair and responsible resolution."
At issue is one of the biggest threats facing Bank of America and other major lenders that weathered the financial crisis with help from the government.
During the housing bubble, the banks typically sold mortgages to investors around the world, including Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. But those investors were generally entitled to repayment by the lenders if the loans were sold on the basis of false assurances..."
No I am not the one countering with numbers and facts with the likes of Ayn Rand political hacks but the facts are true and you know it and we have known for years that Pseudo Liberalism is an economical failure without other peoples work & money and it was the Pseudo Liberal Democrats & the Clinton Adminstration who created the housing mess by allowing loans to people that couldnt repay them or afford the houses they were buying.

As one Congressman said on the Senate floor today, "There's a 'Gone Campaigning' sign outside the Oval Office."
He's back today to high five his peeps in the Democratic Party and made a big to do out of snubbing Republicans because they won't let him have his way. As usual. Reminds me of a 5-year-old.
It goes both ways stupid, John Boehner isn't even returning calls from the White House. That's totally disrespectful to the elected head of this country.

John Boehner isn't receiving calls from the tea party.
He has little power but yet to marry three wives.

Boehner is a Modern Liberal too within the Republican Party which most of his congressional district is Welfare Society and they keep re-electing him too.

Here's what I know... the FRB has the statistics and numbers to show CRA played, at most, a small, insignificant role. FRB data also shows many of the so called CRA loans didn't qualify as such.

And FRB is charged with enforcement.

This versus your outsiders who give their analysis of what they BELIEVE is problems, minus the numbers because they're using their form of 'logic'... in many cases in support of their politics.

Clinton didn't create the housing mess. Corporations in conjunction with capitalism did (as noted by the Bank of America article I presented).

This is what I KNOW for a fact.

Whether you choose to accept reality or not is up to you.
