Barack Obama, our next President

Whether one wants to blame politics or mortgage bankers, there would not have been any housing bubble and subsequent collapse were it not for irresponsible buyers who "purchased" houses far beyond their financial ability.
The buyers should bear most of the blame for their circumstances.
Granted. Can't count the number of times I asked "how are these people affording these overpriced houses" when we were renting to wait out the bubble bursting.

Eventually the kind of loans that allowed them to do that became clear. And why there were so many foreclosures a few years later.

As usual, you're wrong.
There is little inflation because Ben Bernanke has done a great job at the FED.
You nitwits were predicting massive inflation, ans you were proven wrong. As you were proven wrong about the Auto Bailout, with American Cars doing really well again, beating Toyota and Honda for quality in many cases.
And you're dead wrong about Obamacare. Proof is that 22% of Republicans had a good opinion of the 'Affordable Care Act', whild 12% of the same Republicans had a good opinion of 'Obamacare'.
There was an election last Novbember, where your guy ran on "I'll Repeal Obamacare on Day One".
He lost. Obama won, proving Americans want Obamacare.
Obamacare will be a major success, and that's what's got you nitwits so scared of it.
You nitwits poisoned the well as best you could, but you've lost.
Crazy person.

Bush did foresee the danger posed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government-sponsored mortgage finance giants. The president spent years pushing a recalcitrant Congress to toughen regulation of the companies, but was unwilling to compromise when his former Treasury secretary wanted to cut a deal. And the regulator Bush chose to oversee them - an old school buddy - pronounced the companies sound even as they headed toward insolvency.

As early as 2006, top advisers to Bush dismissed warnings from people inside and outside the White House that housing prices were inflated and that a foreclosure crisis was looming. And when the economy deteriorated, Bush and his team misdiagnosed the reasons and scope of the downturn. As recently as February, for example, Bush was still calling it a "rough patch."

The result was a series of piecemeal policy prescriptions that lagged behind the escalating crisis.

"There is no question we did not recognize the severity of the problems," said Al Hubbard, Bush's former chief economic adviser, who left the White House in December 2007. "Had we, we would have attacked them."

Looking back, Keith Hennessey, Bush's current chief economic adviser, said he and his colleagues had done the best they could "with the information we had at the time." But Hennessey did say he regretted that the administration had not paid more heed to the dangers of easy lending practices.

And both Paulson and his predecessor, John Snow, say the housing push went too far.

"The Bush administration took a lot of pride that home ownership had reached historic highs," Snow said during an interview. "But what we forgot in the process was that it has to be done in the context of people being able to afford their house. We now realize there was a high cost."

Lois thinks the President should be her servent!
On Twitter, former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney announced the adoption of his “22nd grandchild,” Kieran James Romney, who is the second twenty-second grandchild he’s acquired in two months.
The child, adopted by his son Ben and wife Andelynne, is black. The circumstances of his adoption are unknown.
Critics have been quick to note that the boy’s name, Kieran, means “black” in Gaelic.

We elect our leaders to serve us, the people. Obama serves his self-imposed personal vision and blames republicans if they don't share his same vision.

Don't recall too many presidents like this one before. Most presidents reach across the aisle and work with representatives of the people who might not have voted for them.

It's a 'possible future home'?

You come here to tell others about your 'possible future home'?

There's a core of you folks that really need to get off this thread and get an actual life. I can always count on seeing certain names however infrequently I stop by.

This is the first president in our history who actually wants to bring this nation down and weaken us on the world stage - almost as payback for past sins - even though blacks have long since taken their place as a crucial part of this nation's fabric.

LOL. And I see you apparently live in New York City. Enjoy buying every drop of water you consume in the very near future all thanks to Bush, Cheney and your friends at Halliburton. And if you or your love ones drop dead as a result of exposure to the poisoned water, too bad for you b/c Bush/Cheney's 2005 Energy Policy Act states the oil & gas companies are immune to suit. LOL.
