That is right, but an important aspect was the guy selling that mortgage did not care if it defaulted because he was going to sell it. Whether it was successful or failed did not matter to him.
The people that bought it from that seller didn't care because they bundled them up into securities. Mortgage based securities were selling like hotcakes & that created the demand for more mortgages. So it goes well beyond banks & well into investment houses. Companies like Standard & Poor then gave them AAA rating for the right price.
The buyers often knew they could not make the balloon payments. Many were hesitant but they were told that when the time came for the balloon payment that they could just remortgage at that time. But home values tumbled & they were all underwater.
So many were duped.
Now these types of mortgages were not CRA loans. So for all those out there screaming "CRA CRA", no. CRA loans were typically standard long term mortgages.
60 million Americans were duped into voting for the empty suit fraud Oblamer.

It's almost like they have a grudge against this country and have to prove something even if it means going in the wrong direction. There's no other way to explain it.
I do believe far too many liberals are simply brainwashed and can no longer compute or grasp common sense anymore. They're much too willing to cut off their noses to spite their faces. Probably where that saying came from.
I agree.

I'll also say many dumb dems are simply jealous of those who make it on their own. They loathe their own failures.

Aunt Bettie Lou, "It's becoming more about party loyalty and preserving the party and, thus, power than the best interests of the country..." If you're talking about the GOP then you are absolutely right. The GOP is splintering right down the middle with the young guns(Tea Party Republicans) who would rather see the country fail then compromise with a Democratic Administration on what's best for the Public Interest and the old Republican guard--many from Deep South states who still remember fondly when setting aside ideological differences and making deals across the aisle with democrats where everyone gives up something so all can enjoy better ,shared benefit wasn't equated to treason and scorned. We'll indeed see in this 2014 election if the 'sequester backfired' or not-- do you really think most Americans approve of Congressmen only acting to protect their own privileged lifestyle ,but won't lift a finger to end the sequester for the poor and middle class most negatively effected by it? Many Republicans , like Hal Rogers, are in for another rude awakening as if they forgot why President Obama and VP Biden won reelection in 2012 so handily.

http://www.nationalmemo.com/poll-americans-ba... "According to a new Morning Joe/Marist poll, Americans overwhelmingly favor the Democratic approach to managing the economy and toughening gun laws.

The poll finds that 64 percent believe that creating jobs should be Congress and President Obama’s top priority, while just 33 percent agree with the Republican position that reducing the federal budget deficit is paramount.

Furthermore, when asked how they believe the deficit should be reduced, 42 percent agree with President Obama’s position that we should both cut spending and increase revenues, while 35 percent believe that we should primarily increase revenues, and just 17 percent agree with House Republicans that deficit reduction should come mostly through spending cuts.

Although Republicans have repeatedly asserted that new tax revenue should be off the table as a result of the fiscal cliff deal that raised taxes on family income above $450,000, the American public does not agree."

I don't Consider Rush Limbaugh a Conservative at all, only in name and is more a Neo-Con(Liberal).

I ove it.

Republicans in Congress meet in December of 2008 & decide that if Obama is for it, they would be against it.

Mitch McConnell makes dumping Obama his number one priority.

And you blame Democrats & accuse therm o being of party first.

Republicans in the house all voted against bills that were top help us recover.

Republicas in the Senate filibuster every effort.

My God, they couldn't even vote to end subsidies to companies making billions in profit.

GOP Battles A Threat To Gun Rights That Even The NRA Says Doesn’t Exist

A bill introduced late last week by Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) and Rep. Frank Lucas (R-OK) would ban federal agencies, excluding the Pentagon, from buying more ammunition during a six-month period if it currently possesses more than its monthly averages during the Bush administration.

The conspiracy theory that incubated the bill is that the Obama administration is trying to buy up bullets so ordinary Americans have less access to them in the marketplace.

“President Obama has been adamant about curbing law-abiding Americans’ access and opportunities to exercise their Second Amendment rights,” Inhofe said in a statement.“One way the Obama Administration is able to do this is by limiting what’s available in the market with federal agencies purchasing unnecessary stockpiles of ammunition.”

Only it’s false — as no less a pro-gun organization than the NRA declared last year.

Last fall, the NRA issued a statement saying the claim was being pushed in an “Internet rumor mill” and was designed to “stir up fear.” The “more incendiary authors,” the group said,“suggest that these government agencies are preparing for a war with the American people.”

“As most gun owners will agree, skepticism of government is healthy. But today, there are more than enough actual threats to the Second Amendment to keep gun owners busy,” the NRA said.“[T]here is no need to invent additional threats to our rights.”
