    Obama had two years, total control of the Congress and generated the results which have led to a 38% JAR, that says it all.

    Obviously you are looking for that liberal utopian world that doesn't exist where the govt. takes care of all your needs and provides cradle to grave coverage as well as the parental responsibilities that apparently liberals lack. The nanny state suits you well. Why would anyone vote for Obamanomics after the results generated?

    Didn't hear a lot about this, did you? Wonder why?

    THis is the role ACORN played.
    I did not know ACORN did financial modeling, nor were its credit lines big enough to do much borrowing. How are they responsible for the economic collapses? Your statement ties ACORN to the problem just about as logically has tying the Colorado Rockies to it (afterall, the other unique about 2007 was the Rockies only world series appearance).

    Sorry, but the economic collapse of 2007-2008 was extremely complex... and largely a supply side problem. There was a ton of money flowing from hedge funds and other money managers flowing into the market. Investors, a trendy group, were at the time fascinated with mortgage-backed securities and derivatives. The problem was that there was too much money chasing too few of solid deals. Hence, they went after less qualified deals.

    I know a fair amount about what happened here as a did a fair amount of strategic consulting for a boiler-room style sub-prime mortgage originator in 2005 and 2006. You could see the house of cards from this vantage point pretty clearly..... This little company (less than $10M in revenue) had a $250M credit line with Countrywide and $100M with Lehman... they were able to make their own credit decisions, close and package the loans and "ship them" to the funding source. This company would earn as much as 10% of the loan value in fees. It was a blank check for the originator... all they needed was a warm-body owning a house with a social security number that would agree to take a mortgage.... to get this, they did OUTBOUND telemarketing talking people in financial trouble to take a 1st, 2nd or 3rd mortgage to fix their financial problems.

    I suggest you do some more reading.... if you think ACORN had any significant role in this, you are ill-informed. It simply lacked the size and organization to have any impact on the US economy or elections... it was a benign organization.

    I think you have said it all with a single post reposted 20,327 times. You have more re-runs than the TVLand network.

    Yet liberals make the same claims over and over and are never questioned. Imagine that actually trying to stay on thread topic?

    Why did you avoid the valid questions I asked? Perhaps you don't have the answers?

    Like all liberals you look to the govt. to provide the money, taxpayer money, to fund job creation which just goes to show how little you know about the private sector economy. There is plenty of private sector money but it isn't going to be spent with this President in office and his job killing economic policy.
