Bush drive for home ownership fueled housing bubble
"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."
For much of the Bush presidency, the White House was preoccupied by terrorism and war; on the economic front, its pressing concerns were cutting taxes and privatizing Social Security, a government retirement and disability benefits program. The housing market was a bright spot: Ever-rising home values kept the economy humming, as owners drew down on their equity to buy consumer goods and pack their children off to college.
Lawrence Lindsay, Bush's first chief economic adviser, said there was little impetus to raise alarms about the proliferation of easy credit that was helping Bush meet housing goals.
"No one wanted to stop that bubble," Lindsay said. "It would have conflicted with the president's own policies."

So, um, you get to ask the questions AND supply the answers? Sounds like a rhetorical argument to me?
You seem to have a severe problem with reading and comprehending the written English language. There doesn't seem to be an answer to the questions in the text.
I'll help you correct this problem with an exercise.
Read the post below. If there is an answer in the post, then don't answer the question. If there is no answer in the post, then answer the question.

Where exactly was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment while it was being watched real-time in the White House?

And;

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Location?
Source of money?

Where did Maxine Waters and Barney Frank go after the housing market collapsed? They sure faded out of the spotlight rather abruptly.

Good thing Senator Barack Obama kept a low profile as the third in line to pocket the most money from Fannie and Freddie's payroll.

He was smart to stay under the radar - as usual. It's easier for him to blame Republicans now.

Everyone has a legal obligation to answer a subpoena issued from the governmental body that represents the people of the United States of America.

I was examined by European 5 star General pschiatrist over village party incident while playing war games with 82nd airborne Division. Chased down deuce and a half wn foot with empty 45. Article 15 or court martial for being drunk off base took article 15. No evidence against me MP General loved Unit warned us three times to return to camp. I could have beaten case but did not want to take chance. General Slaughter sent me to pschiatrist in Europe he said I was not the problem my Army Unit was I was emotional then also.

Hiroshima. Nagasaki. How many "innocent" children do you imagine there were there? Did it take a brain surgeon to figure it out? Or just a few useless American soldiers doing what they told?
Ok, dufus....

It was a foregone conclusion that the United States was going to invade Japan and physically defeat it without consideration of the cost, in either US lives or Japanese lives. It was anticipated that there would be in excess of one million American casualties, and this was not a deterrent.
So, please tell us what your estimate is of the number of Japanese that would be killed when the United States invaded Japan and physically crushed the country.
10 million? 20 million? 30 million?
Then, compare that to the number of people killed by the two bombs that convinced Japan to surrender and end the war.

Well? How many Japanese lives were saved by the use of the two bombs?
... it's a simple arithmetic problem, dufus. What's your answer?

That's why the military hires 19 year olds from Podunk: they believe what you say and will execute orders no questions asked. They are not smart enough to ask questions in any event.
Try giving an order to that young person from Podunk to go to Podunk and kill his own family.
You just might have a problem with your orders being carried out, dufus.
That wouldn't be a problem with people from places like, oh, say, Chicago where they stack the bullet-riddled corpses to the rafters in the morgue every weekend killing themselves. They obviously don't have a problem blowing their own family and friends away there.

How's that feel, honey? When you are finally mine, carol, I will be quick. There is no reward in making a beaten foe needlessly suffer. I, for instance, can't imagine why a Roman would bother to crucify a Jew when Jews are so much better at crucifying themselves?
Damn. I don't believe it. We have here a person who knows everything. I guess I've been asking the wrong people to answer these questions.

Ok, manifestly dominant know-it-all, answer these two questions:

Where exactly was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?

And;

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

A location is required to answer the first question, and a source of money is required to answer the second question.

Which brings to mind Bush and Cheney's numerous lies and fear mongering that sacrificed over 5,000 innocent American soldiers and a few million Iraqis. Now there's some first class hypocrisy and redneck logic.

* Recent budget cuts:$ 38,500,000,000

Let's now remove 8 zeros and pretend it's a household budget:
* Annual family income:$21,700
* Money the family spent:$38,200
* New debt on the credit card:$16,500
* Outstanding balance on the credit card:$142,710
* Total budget cuts so far:$385
Hard to believe.

Whatever happened to that Senator from Illinois who made an announcement on the Senate floor years ago that raising the debt ceiling was a sign of bad leadership?

Wasn't that Senator Barack Obama, now President Barack Obama, who is now demanding conservatives raise the debt ceiling - yet again.

Yep, it was.
