Gee, why am I not surprised that you're too dishonest (or ignorant) to admit that it was the Democrats who were the driving force behind the socialist mortgage giveaway through Fannie Mae and Freddy Mack?
Some highlights:
1930s: Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal
Fannie Mae started as the Federal National Mortgage Association. Fannie Mae provided local banks and thrifts with money needed to finance home mortgages.
1968: Lyndon Johnson converted Fannie Mae into a public-private hybrid called a “government-sponsored enterprise”[GSE].
1970: Freddie Mac, was created so Fannie Mae would not monopolize mortgage buying (but they have, in fact, marched in concert).
1977: Under Jimmy Carter, the Community Reinvestment Act [CRA] compelled banks to make loans to poor borrowers.
1999: Under Bill Clinton, driven by Chris Dodd and Barney Frank, banks were given strict numerical quotas for forcing sub-prime loans.
Thus, the economic downward spiral began.
Wow. Just, wow. I guess I should have predicted that that level of bespoke crazy would come from someone with that handle, but wow. This is even better than a really good Birther rant.

You now have my entire attention. Please, I beg of you, do go on. I'm just agog with anticipation dreaming of what other handcrafted wackiness you will be gifting us.

The "economic downward spiral" began with Ron Reagan's borrow and spend false prosperity. Clinton arrested it, but GW Bush's treasury raid kicked it into overdrive, and eventually crisis.

Haha. What was predictable was your immediate reversion to insults and attack mode.

Nice whine, though…now try countering

Haha. No surprise that the lying, insane Mr Bill will never be honest enough to admit that it was the Democrat's attempted but failed Socialist mortgage giveaway that precipitated the entire downward spiral.

Boring. You had the perfect opportunity to actually say something and you waste it going, "Nyah, nyah."

You have achieved failure.

There's no point in "saying something" to the insane Mr Bill. He lives in his own little world and seldom understands what is said or has anything rational to say in return.

But what's your excuse? When you had the opportunity to respond intelligently in our conversation, you kicked the can down the road with a childishly ridiculous personal attack. People in glass houses, you know...

Ahhh... I get it. So you're nothing more complex than an organic spam-bot. You don't THINK about what you type, you just cut-paste whatever bumper sticker you saw that day. Good to know.

I always like knowing who has an opinion of their own versus who, like you, I can safely ignore secure in the knowledge that they will never have any substantive to contribute.

Hey, if pretending (i.e. lying) that you didn't respond to my factual post with a ranting, ad hominem attack makes you feel better about yourself, be my guest.

Well, thankfully, you never had a "factual post" so it hasn't come up as yet...

The poor creature lies as he breaths. I have advised it to run for Senate for the teabaggers.

I also think it would do well making up facts for Rush Limbaugh's circus of misanthoropics. Or Glenn Becks cavalcade of calumny.
