Transcripts show Fed underestimated crisis in 2007

There are 12 comments on the www.usatoday.com story from Jan 18, 2013, titled Transcripts show Fed underestimated crisis in 2007. In it, www.usatoday.com reports that:

The Federal Reserve on Friday released transcripts of its eight regular meetings and three emergency telephone conference calls in 2007. The meetings occurred as the country was on the brink of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.

The transcripts paint a picture of a central bank that was forced to switch from worrying about inflation and only gradually recognized the scope of the approaching crisis. That year, the Fed began to cut interest rates and took extraordinary steps to ease credit and shore up confidence in the banking system.

Is that you Nagin? Democrats are so stupid they still don't realize that barney frank, Dodd, and Obama caused the mortgage crash. Benghazi was terrorists. Now all the hypocrite democrats are calling out "TERRORISTS EEEKKK TERRORISTS in Algeria, Benghazi #2. Panneta and Hillary make me sick. Nagin is a thief. Reid better get a budget or the senators go home with no pay. GOOD.
5 days till Hillary sings. If I was her, I would divorce myself from Obama and his horde of corrupt and completely stupid idiots now. I would throw him under the bus so fast about Benghazi it would make Barack's little pinhead pop right off.
There is no hope for Obama. He is a trashed as Lance Armstrong. And you, are an IDIOT.

2001

April: The Bush Administration’s FY02 budget declares that the size of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is “a potential problem,” because “financial trouble of a large GSE could cause strong repercussions in financial markets, affecting Federally insured entities and economic activity.”

2002

May: The President calls for the disclosure and corporate governance principles contained in his 10-point plan for corporate responsibility to apply to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.(OMB Prompt Letter to OFHEO, 5/29/02)

2003

January: Freddie Mac announces it has to restate financial results for the previous three years.

February: The Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO) releases a report explaining that “although investors perceive an implicit Federal guarantee of [GSE] obligations,”“the government has provided no explicit legal backing for them.” As a consequence, unexpected problems at a GSE could immediately spread into financial sectors beyond the housing market.(”Systemic Risk: Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Role of OFHEO,” OFHEO Report, 2/4/03)

ALL attempt by Bush to regulate Fannie/Freddie and get it under control BEFORE the crunch hit was blocked in the House by Dodd and in the Senate by Fwank....geniuses "we'll just blame Bush,, the libeals will fall for it!! LMAO The gullible left.

"Blame Bush" ain't working any longer, bubba as the truth is coming out.

Now, how 'bout those cities filing for bankruptcy in good ol liberal California!!! LMAO
