Bail out is an insult to the American people.

When it comes down to it there would be no mortages loaned with out freddie and fannie. What I meant about a clearing house is that local banks orriginate loans and then Freddie and Fannie buy those loans from the locals. You may have your mortages orriginated and serviced by your local bank but I am 99% sure that your mortages were sold in a bundle back to freddie and fannie which in turn sold those bundles to foriegn investors. Mordern banks do this now to keep themselves liquid so they can do more business. But sometime along the way the standards kept being lowered and freddie and fannie set the bar for those standards. Some people say that it goes all the way back to the Carter administration that lowered the standards so that more poor people can buy houses.  (Sep 29, 2008 | post #33)

No, Fannie and Freddi was a clearing house for loans. Since they were a quasi gov. entity they could be able to handle any type of loan. They set the parameters for what hoops the borrower had to go through to be able to get the loans. Fannie and Freddie were all ready gov supported and it has been years since anyone noticed how out of hand they had become. As for the funny names I am not ure thier origins.  (Sep 29, 2008 | post #31)

I agree it isn't all of Bush's fault it is the system that failed but he was on watch when it did. This has been going on for years. I remeber buying my first house in 1996 with only 3 percent down and a fudged income level to qualify for a FHA loan. The problem here was every bank in town began to starting to offer the same terms but with out the FHA backing. But as it turns out Freddie and Fannie ended up buying these loans anyhow but with out the "official government" backing.  (Sep 28, 2008 | post #28)

what makes white men so goofy

I am white, I am goofy, not very good looking, I have a decent home, and I just started a garden this year. I have a great pumpkin and some tomatoes to show for it but it is a long way from nice.  (Sep 28, 2008 | post #21)

I think you are either drunk or ignorant, I was giving you the benefit of the doubt saying you were drunk. I guess I was wrong too. As for white men being goofy. I just said that their dancing was. This statement is comming from me, a white man.  (Sep 28, 2008 | post #17)
