Do you actually comprehend what you are typing moron? Just how stupid are you?
Just when you think you've read all the idiotic posts by the rightwing puppet brigade, this idiot shows up.
Brutal.
i do, fatboy, you don't. sorry i can't make it shorter than it is, find an adult to read it to you.
Maybe this will help:

"In the 1990's under the administration of Franklin Raines, a Clinton Administration appointee, Fannie Mae began to demand that the lending institutions that it dealt with prove that they were not redlining. This meant that the lending institutions would have to fulfill a quota of minority mortgage lending. This in turn meant that the lending agencies would have to lower their standards in terms of such things as down payments and the required incomes"

i doubt it however.

So Freddie and Fannie loosen the regulations probably spurred on by pressure from the Bush regime, criminals in the guise of mortgage companies take advantage and it's F&F's fault.

Criminal lenders sold those crap mortgages which they knew were crap to criminal banks until the entire ponzy scheme collapsed because the Bush Cabal could no longer prop them up because we spent all our money on the useless war in Iraq and the never-ending war on terror.

But hey lets go after the welfare recipients and people on food stamps.

" The guilt for the subprime mortgage financial crisis lies both with the lenders who knowingly put borrowers into booby trapped mortgages and the management of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for making a market for such booby trapped mortgages thus giving the lenders the incentive for writing them."

gee, lemons were forced down the throats of financial institutions and they made lemonade, what a shock. Who could have foreseen that?

This is the policies of liberals, over and over. Just force folly and to hell with the consequences.

Fact Check: Obama Had More to Do With 2008 Economic Meltdown Than Bush Ever Did
Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, September 5, 2012, 2:02 PM

" President Barack Obama was a pioneering contributor to the national subprime real estate bubble, and roughly half of the 186 African-American clients in his landmark 1995 mortgage discrimination lawsuit against Citibank have since gone bankrupt or received foreclosure notices…

…Obama has pursued the same top-down mortgage lending policies in the White House.

Obama’s lawsuit was one element of a national “anti-redlining” campaign led by Chicago’s progressive groups, who argued that banks unfairly refused to lend money to people living within so-called “redlines” around African-American communities. The campaign was powered by progressives’ moral claim that their expertise could boost home ownership among the United States’ most disadvantaged minority, African-Americans."

Whose policies led to the credit crisis?
posted at 9:40 am on September 16, 2008 by Ed Morrissey

The credit crisis and the lack of oversight over government-subsidized lenders like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac occurred on the watch of George Bush, and many blame his economic team for their lack of oversight in the collapse. Barack Obama has made this point one of his major campaign themes, arguing that John McCain would provide more of the same failures that Bush did. However, what many do not recall is that Bush wanted to tighten oversight with a new regulatory board for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and other government recipients for the express purpose of addressing bad loan practices — and Democrats blocked it.
