Have you ever heard of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission (FCIC), AKA-Angelides Commission?
A bi-partisan commission, of Republicans and Democrats.
"While the vulnerabilities that created the potential for crisis were years in the making, it was the collapse of the housing bubble—fueled by low interest rates, easy and available credit, scant regulation, and toxic mortgages— that was the spark that ignited a string of events, which led to a full-blown crisis in the fall of 2008. Trillions of dollars in risky mortgages had become embedded throughout the financial system, as mortgage-related securities were packaged, repackaged, and sold to investors around the world. When the bubble burst, hundreds of billions of dollars in losses in mortgages and mortgage-related securities shook markets as well as financial institutions that had significant exposures to those mortgages and had borrowed heavily against them. This happened not just in the United States but around the world. The losses were magnified by derivatives such as synthetic securities.“
Not as simple as the Boston Herald editorial board's
"Barney Franks legacy"
is it?
Oh stupid me will take the opinion of a bi-partisan commission with subpoena power over that of the editorial board.
While your hypocrisy is often very amusing, it doesn't usually make me actually laugh out loud. This one, however, did... Robby Sobel... I mean BARNEY

<quoted text>Let's be honest here. This mess was caused by rich democrats peddling goods to poor democrats. Poor dumb democrats signed papers without reading them because they were told they could have a home, the American dream. They were told that even though they only made $20,000 a year they could qualify for a $300,000 + morgtage! Then the "CHICKENS CAME HOME TO ROOST" and they figured out that they couldn't pay for those big houses. So instead of taking full responsibility for their actions they cried foul, "we didn't know about baloon payments and variable rates and money, what's money." So as usual the hard working tax payer had to go in and bail out the big dummies! Forget voter identification their should be an IQ test before these libtards can breed!
We can put light where there’s darkness, and hope where there’s despondency in this country. And part of it is working together as a nation to encourage folks to own their own home.”— President Bush, Oct. 15, 2002
“The Bush administration took a lot of pride that homeownership had reached historic highs,” Mr. Snow said in 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.”
But the story of how we got here is partly one of Mr. Bush’s own making, according to a review of his tenure that included interviews with dozens of current and former administration officials.
From his earliest days in office, Mr. Bush paired his belief that Americans do best when they own their own home with his conviction that markets do best when let alone.
He pushed hard to expand homeownership, especially among minorities, an initiative that dovetailed with his ambition to expand the Republican tent — and with the business interests of some of his biggest donors. But his housing policies and hands-off approach to regulation encouraged lax lending standards.

<quoted text>Until you finish high school and get your degree in the english language, lay off the criticism about how we type. Get over it. I can't speak for warrior, but i'm pretty sure he has a job. I on the other work my rearend off so ignornant lazy people like yourself can draw a welfare check. I'm pretty sure you wouldn't know hard work if it bit you on the butt. You might to read your post, quit talking about yourself. After all I ain't the one whineing about no welfare raise, sorry obama hasn't sucked enough taxes out of the rich people for you yet. Be patient he's working on it. Hate to break you heart but anyone that defends obama as you have, is absolutely getting welfare check and food stamps as a bonus. And if anybody on here is spewing rhetoric, it's you. Because if somebody doesn't agree with you. You attack like a junk yard dog. Should i find you a bone. You need something to chew on would that make you feel better. I'm pretty sure i got some dog biscuits here some where. Now calm down.
Believe me ma'm highschool and college are way behind me and I grduated from both. I do not care how you type what I care about is the ignorance you republicans believe is fact that is included within your text. I do not draw a check ma'm so do not include me into your stereotype that you republicans like to place upon everyone. I am in the middle class, can you say the same? I think not. Do you even know what the "middle class" income consist of? I think not. So if you try and figure that out, you might want to take it slow as to not hurt your head. Oh you are not? That's funny because your whole party is whining about giving raises to anyone, expecially the ones on a fixed income. Really? Do you believe that Steven Spielberg, Stephen King, Dennis Haybert, Dustin Hoffman, Calven Klein, Jamie Foxx, Tyler Perry, and Seth Rogan are drawing welfare as well? I think not. So how can everyone be drawing a check that believes in Obama again? I am not asking anyone to agree with what I say but you cannot count fact as a disingenuous statement, so when you republicans decide to get over whatever social hill you are trying to climb, then the rest of the world will be waiting.

<quoted text>Hey TOOL, I am retired. I was fortunate to be able to retire early because my parents instilled in me knowledge, wisdom, outstanding work ethic, morals and solid core values. They are proud of the life I made, I am proud of the family I raised. They are Republicans. I wish democrats could be like this also..
There are many democrats that have led and live the same core value life you have explained and laid out. I am proud of you for accomplishing a feat that most cannot; however, that gives you NO right to degrade and think that other people are beneath you because they have not accomplished the same goals. That core value must have made it to the drawing board in your family. Your sterotypical view of most people is beneath the nature of most Americans and is considered inconsiderate. You are retired, but are you drawing a check as well? Social security? If so then you need to think real hard about what kind of party you actually want to support since republicans want to gut social security and medicare to privatise them. In the long run we may all not agree on the same things but a bit of respect showed on both sides is something that should be agreed on.

Thank you for giving credit to the author whos quote was in quotation marks in the above refferenced post.

I know you have learned to find quotes like I taught you.

Fully anticipating an attack, I left the authors name off on purpose but put quotations marks on his QUOTE to prove to you, I lead your dumb ass around like a dog on a leash.


P.S.

You should really learn what those little squiggly marks at the beginning an end end of a paragraph mean.

You leave the names off because you are completely insecure with what you are posting and are paranoid that people know how to operate a computer to find what weak and mostly false information you provide.

You're false sense of superiority to make yourself feel better is just as amusing, Robby....

Does Guest type what you think about yourself, or is it you feel the need to regurgitate the banter to make an attempt at covering your ass.

Just wanted to let you know that radio shack, game stop, jcpenny, sears and a whole bunch of other change discount stores most are closeing 200+ stores each national wide. But here's the clincher walmart are discussing right now about actually closing stores accross the nation wide. Now somebody so smart as you missed this. Now barney if walmart are actually talking about closeing some stores. You cannot sit there and tell me that the economy is doing so awesome if walmart is thinking about closing stores. Look it up if you don't believe because it true and this ain't no joke. And this proves i'm right. Your expert opinion on economy is full of crap.
Now you are going to have to hurry up and wait,

so you can tell me

I told you so.
