White House Philosophy Stoked Mortgage Bonfire
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
December 20, 2008 / http://tinyurl.com/83qjpf
WASHINGTON — The global financial system was teetering on the edge of collapse when President Bush and his economics team huddled in the Roosevelt Room of the White House for a briefing that, in the words of one participant,“scared the hell out of everybody.”
It was Sept. 18. Lehman Brothers had just gone belly-up, overwhelmed by toxic mortgages. Bank of America had swallowed Merrill Lynch in a hastily arranged sale. Two days earlier, Mr. Bush had agreed to pump $85 billion into the failing insurance giant American International Group.
The president listened as Ben S. Bernanke, chairman of the Federal Reserve, laid out the latest terrifying news: The credit markets, gripped by panic, had frozen overnight, and banks were refusing to lend money.

FBI: 80% of Fraud Attributed To Insiders Not Homeowners
The increased reliance by both financial institutions and non-financial institution lenders on third party brokers has created opportunities for organized fraud groups, particularly where mortgage industry professionals are involved. Combating significant fraud in this area is a priority, because mortgage lending and the housing market have a significant overall effect on the nation's economy. All mortgage fraud programs were recently consolidated within the Financial Institution Fraud Unit, even where the targeted
lender is not a financial institution. This consolidation provides a more effective and efficient management over mortgage fraud investigations, the ability to identify and respond more rapidly to emerging mortgage fraud problems, and a better picture of the overall mortgage fraud problem./ http://www.lvamerica.com/USApdfs/FBI.pdf

The Bush administration warned as early as April 2001 that Fannie and Freddie were too large and overleveraged and that their failure “could cause strong repercussions in financial markets, affecting federally insured entities and economic activity” well beyond housing. Bush’s plan would have subjected Fannie and Freddie to the kinds of federal regulation that banks, credit unions, and savings and loans have to comply with. In addition, Republican Richard Shelby, then chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, pushed for comprehensive GSE (government-sponsored enterprises) reform in 2005. And who blocked these efforts at reforming Fannie and Freddie? Democrats such as Christopher Dodd and Representative Barney Frank, along with the then-junior senator from Illinois, Barack Obama, who backed Dodd’s threat of a filibuster (Obama was the third-largest recipient of campaign gifts from Fannie and Freddie employees in 2004).

'liberal' means: Favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded
I certainly have not seen many liberals on this thread who are "open to new ideas, open to new opinions, or tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others".
----------

Conservatives tend to believe in a higher level of independence and self-reliance, and believe that the government should not get involved in private economic matters. Conservatives generally believe that having more economic freedom and a less social government will lead to a more responsible and efficient society.

MSNBC 'COMMUNITY KIDS' HOST WORSHIPPED WITH OBAMA
Controversial character further tied to president

“So part of it is, we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents, or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to whole communities. Once it’s everybody’s responsibility and not just the household’s, then we start making better investments.”

Told to "lean forward" then BAM!
\"UP YOURS"/ says Obama!
Dimocrats been Flim-Flammed, Hood-Winked and bent over over yet again!
Some 70 years ago, politicians in Washington decided that they needed to take charge of our retirement savings. They levied a mandatory payroll tax to establish a Social Security fund that would pay workers after they retired. This was to keep old people from the indignity of eating cat food.

This worked just fine for about 30 years. In fact, it was so financially successful that politicians — closely related to common bank robbers — decided that they wanted a more hands-on approach to spending all of this free money flowing in. So, in 1968, President Johnson and Congress jointly started raiding your retirement account.

No longer would workers’ payroll taxes be spent only on retirements. Instead, politicians could spend your retirement savings on all their more pressing priorities such as political favors, boondoggles and government buildings. Never mind that if an evil Wall Street tycoon did this, he would go directly to jail.

So here were are, another 40 years of reckless spending later. The amount of money coming in from payroll taxes is now eclipsed by the amount that goes out in payments to retirees. This Ponzi scheme is, shall we say, underwater, and the sanest people involved are calling for Social Security “reform.”

This would be like if you had a bank and robbers walked in every day for 40 years and stole everything customers had deposited. Then, after 40 years, people come in to withdraw their money only to find that all their deposits for the past 40 years have vanished. The only money left to be withdrawn is that which was deposited that day.

Stunned, broke and perplexed, you walk out onto the sidewalk and standing there is one of the bank robbers. He is holding a picket sign calling for “bank withdrawal reform” and talking about how people should start depositing more money and how they just need to learn to withdraw less.

What is really scary is that this guy standing on the street is the most honest of the bunch. At least he says he has given up his days as a bank robber.

So it is today with the Social Security reformers in the Republican Party. Still, it is worth asking,“Well, how about federal government reform? Or thieving politician reform? Or, stop stealing our money reform?”

Although it is a wee bit apparent that Mr. Obama suddenly realizes that Social Security is faltering as a federal government Ponzi scheme, there is no evidence that he is ready to give up the big-spending, high-rolling ways of a bank robber. On the contrary: A stunning report from The Hill newspaper last week suggests he aims to take the thieving to yet another level.

As Dimocrats hide and watch with eyes wide SHUT, watch and see what Oblamer does!

I'm just glad the US is not a Repub world were only the rich could survive. Under a Repub world there would be NO Social Security NO Medicare No nothing. In a Repub world if a person had money for health care they would be treated if not they would die. Repubs want a third world nation of the elites and the peasants.

Too bad you put your hopes in a system designed to fail. Too bad you put your hopes in a president that has a demonstrated track record of lying to his constituents. Too bad social security is not only being raided but being reduced. Too bad medicare is being cut. The only thing we 'fright wingers' can say is baaaaaaaaaaaaa.

Hey libs, oblamers sequestration has made our military incapable of responding to immediate threats. Did you hear that 1/3 of all Air Force flights have to be stopped? Wow, we should have put that money into social programs for lazy incompetent low intellect voters. baaaaaaaaa, but you anti-American libs never appreciated or respected the military anyway. Now N. Korea is shaking in its boots. baaaaaaaaaa

This is just too funny. In a dem world you are the peasant. LOLOL,

The U.S. economy will not be fixed until social security is disolved. Now oblamer just might get more support from the repubs with his current proposals - cut social security. Do you know how to spell baaaaaaaa?

One more then I'll go take a nap.

Hey libs, you are ingrateful. You should be appreciative to your oblamer in chief for not submitting a budget for the past 4 years (as he is required to). His first budget as president and it cuts social security, medicaide. He is sooo good at what he does he even cut the military without a budget. Can you just imagine what your s.s. checks would look like had he submitted a budget in his first year and did not have to worry about votes.

ROTFL at this one. Obamas first budget and he is attacking the very sheeple that put him in there. Now his own sheeple are protesting. Even the non-relevant UAW are upset.

Pay no attention to the posting at the bottom of this message. It is from Fox news so it must be a lie.

LOLOL, baaaaaaaaaaaa

All Republicans want is to mend the safety need Dimocrats have been shredding for decades!
I do not support "doing away" with Social Security! Neither do other Republicans, that's a misrepresentation at the very LEAST!
If it isn't fixed and "locked away" so politicians cannot continue to raid it is done, following talking points will not fix the problem, ignoring the reality will not make it go away!
Calling Republicans names will not secure Social Security!
Allowing more illegals to draw SSI sure as hell won't help save the safety net!
