Yes, there are many dark alleys to look at when it comes to the market meltdown. However, to casually point to any Republican(s) as if there were no Democrat fingerprints in the collapse is being completely dishonest.
We can post article upon article blaming this person or that entity, but the real bottom line is this is what takes place when government tries to run private business. Government doesn't belong in the loan industry. It doesn't even know how to govern yet alone how to run business. Let banks decide on what standards and who they will make loans to is the solution to the problem--not more regulation.
If minorities and poorer people are shut out of home ownership, then too damn bad. Get a better job and do something about your credit. Quit having kids you can't afford or car payments that you can't keep up.
If somebody blows up your house with dynamite, don't blame the dynamite, blame the person who put it there and lit the fuse.

As Christie colors outside the republicant coloring book, we should remember how much Christie was dumped all over for praising Obama.

Oh the delicious irony of it all!

That fat bastaard.
Who does he think he is attempting to put the needs of his devastated state above the political hosrehockey of the the GOP?
He actually beleives he was elected to represent the people of NJ and fight for THEIR interests.
He has absolutely no concept of how the GOP is run.
Making sure nothing good happens for the next 4 years is the job of the GOP. If anything gets accomplished during Obama's presidency then they will have failed in their mission of discrediting a leftist presient.
The ruins of NJ will just have to fester for 4 more years, because until Obama is gone, NO republican in congress will do a damn thing that the president could possibly take credit for.
How dare Chris Christie put the needs of the selfish people of NJ ahead of the very important work of the GOP.
Doesn't Christie know congress is tying to stop Obama from:
1 taking all of our guns
2 taxing the wealthy
3 givng poor people money
4 the indoctrination of our school children
5 advancing sharia law in America
6 golfing
7 ruining the economy
8 giving Iran a nuclear bomb
9 making pot, coke and heroine legal in all 50 states
10 getting all our foreign dignitaries killed
11 making healthcare affordable
12 building windmills
13 ending fracking
14 making government owned GM build electric shitbox cars
15 the anhilination of Isreal
16 Acorn voter fraud
17 using corn for ethanhol
18 giving guns to mexico
19 allowing illegal immigrants to live
20 banning cigarettes
21 retuning to prohibition

Doesn't Christie realize that congress has to stop Obama? Congress does not have time to get involved with the petty struggles of regular Americans. The people devastated by Super Storm Sandy are on their own. They knew owning property along the coast of the Atlantic was dangerous. And they had better be thankful for the work congress is doing instead of just passing out money to people in need.

"Let banks decide on what standards and who they will make loans to is the solution to the problem--not more regulation".

That's what caused the depressions in 1929 and in 2007.

"If minorities and poorer people are shut out of home ownership, then too damn bad"Government doesn't belong in the loan industry..

They already are.

"Government doesn't belong in the loan industry".

Absolutely, because those "loan sharks" would never put their company in financial ruins--the government will.

Nobody in this country is discriminated against because of sex or race when it comes to mortgages. Nobody. People are discriminated against on their credit scores and history. If blacks or Hispanics happen to fall in that category, then it's not discrimination. They happen to be less responsible people, that's all. To make it a race issue is a red herring that doesn't need resolution via federal regulation.

Banks like employers don't care about color of skin. Their favorite color is green. Those who can produce that green are favored regardless of race or ethnic background.

An employer can pay his or her people anything they desire. An employee can work for anybody willing to hire them. If one is making more than another doing the same work, it's because they are producing less quality or less quantity in the work they do.

Funny name to bring up given the fact that YOUR President was supported by the US Communist party two elections in a row. Not to mention the major dictators of the world.
