Subprime fiasco is due to Barnie Frank and Dodd and company yet they will continue to get reelected by the same people they ruined.

Note the Gloom and Doom headline "Foreclosures Soar" when in fact the headline should have read: "Berkshires Only Marginally Affected By Slow Real Estate Market".

Note buried in the article the following paragraph:
"The decrease in single-family homes sales in Berkshire County is lower than the state's percentage because this area hasn't experienced the problems that have affected the housing market in other areas of the state.
"In doing my everyday due diligence as an appraiser, I don't see Berkshire County as significantly impacted as the rest of the state," Wilkinson said.

Why do the liberal editors at The Berkshire Eagle consistently accentuate gloom and doom and negativism in their coverage rather than presenting a reasonable portrait?

Why does Heller always accentuate the doom and gloom of a presidency that is in its infancy? Sounds like the kettle calling the pot black here dufus.

I continue to be amazed with the number of illiterate morons on this site. Heller can't think, supernatural can't spell, and H Hitler can't understand the news that he apparently reads. What this article says, in a nutshell, is that foreclosures are trending up. Why can't you all get that?

Carter was senile when he was in office.
He singlehandedly could have eradicated the so-called fuel shortage during his administration with the stroke of a pen but refused.
He could have signed an executive order de-controlling oil and refined fuel prices.
He refused.
Ronald Reagan did it within 30 days of taking office.
