When President Bush recommended and proposed regulation of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in 2003, the Democrats blocked it claiming that it would hinder deserving Americans from home ownership. When Congress proposed an overhaul of these entities in 2007, Chuck Schummer(D) NY and others vehemently opposed any such regulation on the same grounds. We are now bailing out these (un) "deserving" homeowners and others who were too greedy to live within their means. Tom Periello needs to study up on these and other events so as not to sound so foolish. The Senate record and the words of the Congressional Democrats are archived for his listening pleasure.

Oh, please. The excesses of our age are the direct product of the Bush Administration. They scream and cry that any regulation or oversight is socialism and turn around and scream and cry for a government bailout when it suits them. Chris Cox at the SEC knew about the mortgage problems, and he did nothing. I don't support the Republican bailout of their cronies on Wall Street, and I certainly don't support the worst president this nation has ever had. I look forward to the numerous corruption trials involving Bush, Cheney, et al, just as we have witnessed those that have already been skewered: Ted Stevens (R-AK) and his corruption trial on 7 felony counts , Mark Foley (R-FL) schtupping little boys in the page office, Scooter Libby's obvious conviction, Larry Craig (R-ID) trying to have sex in a public toilet in the Minneapolis airport with some guy who turned out to be a cop, Ed Schrock (R-VA) doing the same thing on the internet, Tom DeLay's (R-TX) shameful corruption in the Abramoff lobbyist payoff scandal, and on and on and on. These men are criminals, and I suspect that even now there are Wall Streeters in the White House paying off the Administration for bailing them out to the tune of almost a trillion dollars. A vote for the GOP, a vote for Virgil Goode, is a vote to continue this shameful nonsense.

Hey how about those Democrats passing a bill to allow for off shore drilling. What a joke. The biggest reason that our economy is suffering is our lack of affordable energy. The current crop of Dems led by Nancy Pelosi purposely drfted a bill that was designed to be voted down by the Reublicans in the senate. Drilling is allowed offshore but only 100 miles or more out not where the oil is located. And States get no revenue from the sales of the oil. This is sickening to me. I am fed up with partisan politics. We need oil to allow time for Natural Gas to be implemented into our cars. We need nuclear, Solar, wind, etc. Keep blaming the Bush Admin. this strategy is going to loose the election for you in November!

One more point if you please. The largest receipiants of money from Fannie and Freddie were Democrats. 2nd on the list Barak Obama. I'm sorry but their have cases of corruption on both sides of the isle. Currently Charlie Rangel head of the committe that writes tax laws. He is under investigation for not paying taxes on income received from a vacation home in the Carribian. He also sits on the House Ethics committe and Nancy Pelosi says she sees no reason for him to step down?

They did it first by "Dumbing Down" the school system so some kids won't feel the "stigma" of failure.(That what sue happy lawyers are for!)
Then they "lowered the credit standards" so those with little or no credit "Can have part of the American Dream". Now they can't afford to pay it back.
AFFIRMATIVE ACTION AT IT"S FINEST!!

Just like every other politician in history. Same old game that has been played for over a century just new players are on the field and ready to hand the ball off.

I would NEVER eat a peach in a rainstorm while sitting on a duck with one leg during the evening.

Now you just think about that.
