    This problem developed while both held the majorities and the White House.

    The idea to give homes to anyone that could sign a name, whether it was theirs or not was not a GOP program. They certainly were afraid to stop it at the risk of being branded a racist but it was hardly their program.

    Obama was one of the largest backers of ACORN back in the day. Just because you were not elected to Congress does not absolve you of any of the blame either.

    What if Obama was one of the biggest backers of ACORN? He should be. Do you have any idea what ACORN was? It's amazing how many people have overstated significance and power of ACORN. The ACORN leaders would only dream of having 1/10 the power and influence that people attributed to them. They have to be one of the most benign, yet villified organizations in American history.

    So true. Fox News and wingnut radio have conservatives convinced that this group, that is primarily dedicated to community service in low income neighborhoods, is some kind of demonic coven. And unions, of course. Anyone who registers Democratic voters must be destroyed.

    You have been, and continue to be, one of the least informed persons on the board. You continue to make these unsubstantiated statements that contribute nothing to healthy debate, but only serve to raise the blood pressure of the more informed. Stop being so shallow. This is DEBATE politics, not 3rd grade playground argument.

    You have much to learn about the housing crisis... why don't you do some homework before your next post and actually teach us something while making your point. I have no issue with you taking positions contrary to me or others. I do have issue with trite comments from the ill-informed.

    Though not a complete view of the issue, it should at least get your started. Mortgage Crisis - What Caused the Mortgage Crisis

    Yes, they were one of the groups that pushed to allow people into home loans with unverifiable income. With no S.S. number. It's those like yourself that are going to see that we make the same mistakes one day.

    In 2007, the US economy entered a mortgage crisis that caused panic and caused other financial problems. The mortgage crisis was a result of too much borrowing and flawed financial modeling

    THis is the role ACORN played.

    Oh bull****, if TX could have done without the stimulus they would have. Unless you are suggesting that TX is just full of hypocrites such as to accept stimulus money that they were against?

    So either TX needed the money or they are hypocrites.

    Which is it?

    Why would the state of TX allow its taxpayers to send money to D.C. that was being distributed around the country and NOT request that some of it come back to the state? I guess being "slightly" liberal is the same as being totally liberal which means lack of logic and common sense.

    Or they took the money because it is their money and they might as well use the money for themselves other than just let everyone else have it. I will gladly stand against stimulus and take it when it is passed because it is MY MONEY.
