Note that there's no mention of GSEs (Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, etc) or Obama etal as in TJ Hancock's blame and hate mongering b.s., but Bakers does gives particular mention and notable negative critique of The Fed and Alan Greenspan's policies which he (BAKER) claims were at the root of housing bubble debacle. Who was Alan Greenspan? None other that a GOP appointee and Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board from 1987 to 2006.

Greenspan was a TOP advisor to GWB in the lead up to the housing bubble and financial crisis that was/is Bush's nightmare.

If blame is attached to anyone it is the t A.H. Alan Greenspan who appointed by Ronald Reagan and a die hard GOPher during the critical years leading up to Bush's fiasco.

Here's another piece by Baker, a respected economist, in 2013.

Alan Greenspan owes America an apology
The former Fed chair is promoting his new book. He should admit his role in the housing crisis, not insult our intelligence

At some point you just have to shake your head at the Useful Idiots. Thankfully they'll be sent to back of the bus shortly where they belong, to happily smoke pot and blame Bush for everything from the housing bubble to their Aunt Tilly's festering bunions.

Nope, not Bush...

"Now, we've got a problem here in America that we have to address. Too many American families, too many minorities do not own a home. There is a home ownership gap in America. The difference between Anglo America and African American and Hispanic home ownership is too big.(Applause.) And we've got to focus the attention on this nation to address this.

And it starts with setting a goal. And so by the year 2010, we must increase minority home owners by at least 5.5 million. In order to close the homeownership gap, we've got to set a big goal for America, and focus our attention and resources on that goal.(Applause.)And let me talk about some of the progress which we have made to date, as an example for others to follow. First of all, government sponsored corporations that help create our mortgage system -- I introduced two of the leaders here today -- they call those people Fannie May and Freddie Mac, as well as the federal home loan banks, will increase their commitment to minority markets by more than $440 billion.(Applause.) I want to thank Leland and Franklin for that commitment. It's a commitment that conforms to their charters, as well, and also conforms to their hearts.

...... to pull a Phil is to say something completely nonsensical which confuses/baffles human beings with normal, functioning brains.

...... Phils are generally below average intelligence and have a tendency to do stupid things. Beware of encountering a Phil. They may fool you with their university "degrees", charm and dazzling smile, but their idiocy is highly contagious.

"Dude, he totally pulled a Phil and tried to clean those dishes with a microwave!"

"Did he just confuse armadillos with dinosaurs? That guy is such a Phil..."
