Barack Obama, our next President

<quoted text>Chris Matthews Says 'Unemployment Was Well Past 10%' When Obama Took Office - It Was Only 7.8% This is an indisputable fact. There's no grey area here. Unemployment was at 7.8 percent in January 2009. It didn't get to 10% until O'bama had been in office for 10 months.
"There is so much bad in this report that it is hard to find any silver lining," said Morgan Keegan analyst Kevin Giddis.

Economists surveyed by Briefing.com had forecast a loss of 200,000 jobs in the month. October's monthly job loss total was less than September's revised loss of 284,000. Payroll cuts in August were revised up to 127,000, which means more than half of this year's job losses have occurred in the last three months.

September had the largest monthly job loss total since November 2001, the last month of the previous recession and just two months after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

With 1,179,000 cuts, the economy has lost more than a million jobs in a year for the first time since 2001 - the last time the economy was in a recession. With most economic indicators signaling even more difficult times ahead, job losses will likely deepen and continue through at least the first half of 2009."

May I interject that it is you - not the other poster - who is confused?
Major General William T. Sherman, a Republican, promised slaves forty acres and a mule. It was President Andrew Johnson, a Democrat and Lincoln's former Vice-President, who revoked Sherman's orders. It was vetoed two times by President Johnson. By 1865, around 10,000 freed slaves settled on 400,000 acres in Georgia and South Carolina. Soon after President Johnson reversed the order, that land was returned to white slave owners.
You really need to do a little research before posting.
You don't need to go that far back in history , Republican Ronald Reagan ran on reversing desegregation, affirmative action to correct over a 100 years of racial discrimination of Black Americans that favored White Americans in getting jobs, going to college, and even being elected to public office , and Kennedy/Johnson Civil Rights legislation ' and won.

"...Assessing banks in context
The CRA directs federal banking regulatory agencies, including the Federal Reserve, to use their supervisory authority to encourage banking institutions to help meet the credit needs of all segments of their local communities. These communities, referred to hereafter as CRA assessment areas, are defined as the areas where banking institutions have a physical branch office presence and take deposits, including low- and moderate-income areas. The banking agencies periodically assess the performance of banking institutions in serving their local communities, including their patterns of lending to lower-income households and neighborhoods, and take the assessments into consideration when reviewing the institutions' applications for mergers, acquisitions, and branches.
The CRA emphasizes that banking institutions fulfill their CRA obligations within the framework of safe and sound operation. CRA performance evaluations have become more quantitative since 1995, when regulatory changes were enacted that stress actual performance rather than documented efforts to serve a community's credit needs. However, the CRA does not stipulate minimum targets or even goals for the volume of loans, services, or investments banking institutions must provide. While it is fair to say that the primary focus of CRA evaluations is the number and dollar amount of loans to lower-income borrowers or areas, the agencies instruct examiners to judge banks' performance in light of 1) each institution's capacity to extend credit to lower-income groups and 2) the local economic and market conditions that might affect the income and geographic distribution of lending...."

Chris Wallace Rips Eric Cantor as Fox News Drops a Reality Bomb on House Republicans

Chris Wallace tore through Eric Cantor with some tough realistic question on Fox News Sunday, and proved that Fox News is frighteningly more in touch with reality than House Republicans.

Chris Wallace first asked Cantor,“Is what you have been doing the best way to spend Congress’s time when you are about to go on recess for five full weeks?” Cantor tried to defend the votes with standard House Republican talking points, government doesn’t create jobs, blah, blah, blah. Wallace then dropped a reality bomb on Majority Leader Cantor,“But Congressman, rightly or wrongly, none of these bills that you passed is going to become law. Your own members say they’re not going to pass the Senate. The president won’t sign them. Let’s talk reality. You haven’t passed a Farm Bill. You’ve only passed 4 of the 12 appropriations bills you’re supposed to pass. We face a government shutdown and debt limit in the fall. Again, is the best way to spend your time passing bills that aren’t going to become law? An added question, with so much unfinished business why not stick around instead of taking a five week vacation. Rep. Cantor blamed Obama for being out giving campaign speeches, and not cooperating with the House.

Wallace kept after Cantor,“You could tend to your own knitting. You could pass a Farm Bill. You could take. You have the power of the purse. Only 4 of the 12 appropriations bills have you even passed. Why not do what the House is supposed to do?” Cantor claimed they passed a Farm Bill, and tried to turn their complete failure to pass a comprehensive Farm Bill into Republican reform. Cantor blamed the Senate for lack of passage of appropriations bills, and said the House has passed more than the Senate.

When Fox News is more in touch with reality than the Republican Majority Leader in the House, there’s a big problem.

This a network that is still hyping the debunked IRS and Benghazi scandals, but yet, they are telling House Republicans to wake up and get real.

Wallace’s aggressiveness spoke to how unpopular House Republicans are within their own party. Everyone is tired of their decision to waste their time on stunts like votes to repeal Obamacare, and meaningless week long votes on “government waste.” Republicans know that they need to at least give the impression that the House is doing some serious work, but Boehner, Cantor, and developmentally tea disabled House crew refuse to listen.

Rep. Cantor dodged the vacation question, because he is the one who designed the schedule. The 126 day 2013 House work schedule was his idea. Of course, he is not going to take responsibility for only leaving 9 legislative days out of two months to avoid a government shutdown. House Republican want that confrontation. Even though the manufactured crisis strategy hasn’t worked for two years, they are going to go back to that well again.

Fox News always had the broader best interests of the Republican Party at heart. Even they see that the behavior of the House Republican majority is hurting their party. Eric Cantor lost his cool for a bit during the interview, because he isn’t used to being pushed. He is especially not used to being pushed by Fox News.

Wallace ripped into all of Cantor’s weak spots, and the Majority Leader did himself no favors by retreating back to old talking points.

Consider this interview a Fox News style intervention. House Republicans have a problem, and not even their loving family members at Fox can convince them that they need help.

The Federal Reserve Board has found no connection between CRA and the subprime mortgage problems. In fact, the Board's analysis (102 KB PDF) found that nearly 60 percent of higher-priced loans went to middle- or higher-income borrowers or neighborhoods, which are not the focus of CRA activity. Additionally, about 20 percent of the higher-priced loans that were extended in low- or moderate-income areas, or to low- or moderate-income borrowers, were loans originated by lenders not covered by the CRA. Our analysis found that only six percent of all higher-priced loans were made by CRA-covered lenders to borrowers and neighborhoods targeted by the CRA. Further, our review of loan performance found that rates of serious mortgage delinquency are high in all neighborhood groups, not just in lower-income areas.

That's your consistent claim.

As I pointed out, many of your so called 'facts' didn't exist (wikipedia) or were right wing writers with a clear agenda (AEI.)

In looking for causes of the subprime mortgage crisis, some people have contended that the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) pushed banking institutions to make high-risk mortgage loans in lower-income communities and that such lending led to the crisis. In a November 2008 study, Federal Reserve economists Glenn Canner and Neil Bhutta analyzed mortgage-related data to assess such arguments and found no empirical evidence to support the claim that the CRA was a major contributor to the subprime crisis.

Mike Oxley, we hardly knew ye. An amazing report from the FT:

The Ohio Republican who headed the House financial services committee until his retirement after mid-term elections last year, blames the mess [at Fannie and Freddie] on ideologues within the White House as well as Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the Federal Reserve.

The critics have forgotten that the House passed a GSE reform bill in 2005 that could well have prevented the current crisis, says Mr Oxley, now vice-chairman of Nasdaq.

He fumes about the criticism of his House colleagues.“All the handwringing and bedwetting is going on without remembering how the House stepped up on this,” he says.“What did we get from the White House? We got a one-finger salute.”

Statement of Administration Policy: H.R. 1461 - Federal Housing Finance Reform Act of 2005

The Administration strongly believes that the housing GSEs should be focused on their core housing mission, particularly with respect to low-income Americans and first-time homebuyers. Instead, provisions of H.R. 1461 that expand mortgage purchasing authority would lessen the housing GSEs' commitment to low-income homebuyers.
