If CONS cannot believe the CRA caused the financial crisis then you cannot believe smoking dopes makes it ok to screw a mule!
Why do you Pseudo Liberals think why the Federal Reserve was advocating Congress to make the necessary legislative changes to CRA and the Federal Reserve got them it was because of the legistlative changes done in 1990's that created & allowed these Bad Mortgages to begin with that the Clinton Adminstration was involved with & mandating to be given to people who could not afford them and with the New Changes to CRA now these low income people cant get houses now like they did before under the Clinton Adminstration until they can prove they are financially able to get a loan which before under the Clinton Adminstration they didnt have to prove nothing and if you go back you will find the link that shows the legislative changes.

According to Woodward, Gene Sperling, a senior White House official, had "been less than gracious and intimidating."
Woodward then received criticism from journalists and pundits - probably instigated by Sperling at Obama's behest.
It was only after Sperling sent Woodward an email apologizing for his overreaction did Woodward become more forgiving and toned down his criticism.
Woodward also made a point of saying he had had many disagreements with David Axelrod but Axelrod never said “You’re going to regret reaching a conclusion that we don’t like.”
(By the way, David Axelrod just created "scandals" about Obama's opponents. Obama won unopposed twice in the Illinois Senate and unopposed once in U.S. Senate after an alleged "nasty divorce" scandal by one opponent and an alleged "sex" scandal by another was smeared all over the newspapers.)
Don't you find those odds rather unusual? One candidate wins unopposed three times?
Republicans may be able to rerun the 2012 election?

Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein were aided by Mark Felt who provided Washington Post reporter Woodward with critical information on the story that eventually led to the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon in 1974.

Yes and another big thanks to the "less government" GOP. An entire police agency for ONE law. Can you say "disproportionate response" Mr. Nixon?

And your point is?
Thousands of slaves were already working the land General Sherman promised to them with forty acres and a mule.
President Andrew Jackson, a Democrat and the successor after Lincoln's death, revoked that promise and gave the land back to white slave owners.
Again, your point?
Sherman refused to run for President,
the famous "Sherman statement"
President Andrew Johnson was "a red neck" former Senator

Now I have to post this again just to make my little unhappy judge-it even more unhappy.

Obama's regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein, declared web sites should remove "false rumors" and liberal laws should be altered to make it easier to sue for spreading such "rumors".

Sounds fascist to me. Who is Sunstein to decide what are "false rumors"? After all, Obama claims his abuses of power are now phony scandals.

Van Jones was forced to resign as an Obama advisor early on after being exposed as an avowed communist.

Anita Dunn also had to resign after singing the praises of Mao Tse-Tung.

Both sound fascist to me.

Then, of course, WH officials and the DOJ are threatening journalists - Bob Woodward, Lanny Davis, James Rosen, Fox News and the Associated Press - and illegally confiscating personal emails and phone calls.

Again, fascist tactics.

Maybe if Obama didn't publicly demonize anyone who dared to criticize or oppose his personal vision and agenda...

Nope, fascist does seems accurate.

Think about that "slur" for a while.
Not at all. The election of a black man to be President of the United States has inflamed the inbred racism of the right.

And you posted a racal slur. But hey, I expect you will try to weasel out of it like most the racist f*cks that post slurs here on Topix. So many tough people, if you are going to post slurs, at least have the courage to admit it.

I decided to open topix after a fun filled weekend and it goes straight to the dumbest poster on here making one of her classic stupid posts.

"No one died"

Wrong

Misogony turns this skank on.
