Who in the hell does this "BOY" Obama think he is to call anybody with assurances. The only assurance he can give is he is still the same STUPID idiot he was. Change my foot, he can't even spell the word. We all know how both he and his wife got into law school.
They are both a disgrace to AMERICA

Why didn't other borrowers use the Obama loan method? Find a rich sponsor to buy the lot next door so you can "afford" your house. No Fannie, no Freddie needed.
The McCain system works also. Say I Do to the right person and pick up 7 to 10 houses and fourteen cars. And you think they don't understand the plight of the average Joe?
The real life examples of how this
$ 700 billion boondoggle works won't be be seen until after election day, when it will be too late. wait til the average Joe finds out he is paying for mortgages he didn't sign for. The homeowner will be made whole and the banks can't lose, so guess where the bucks will come from and we didn't even get kissed first!

Smart congress members should have said, "Hey, here are those reparartions for the 500 years of oppression," because this crisis was brought on by giving people who couldn't afford mortgages a mortgage. Most of those people were African American (prove me wrong). So here are those reparations guys. Now stop crying and enjoy the America's ride down the drain with the rest of us.

I think Steny Hoyer was misquoted as saying, "What happens on Wall Street is bound up with the jobs of millions, and the retirements of millions, and the homes of millions, and the dreams of millions." What he actually said was "What happens on Wall Street is bound up with the jobs of millionaires, and the retirements of millionaires, and the homes of millionaires, and the dreams of millionaires."
