    that is the point, people lose site of their own personal responsibility and expect the govt. to do things for them it was never created to do. I support the limited govt. intent of our Founders and power back at the state level where it belongs except on national security issues. Much of the state budget is duplicated at the Federal Level and that says it all. The question is why?

I do recall Barney Frank however claiming that there was nothing wrong with Fannie and Freddie.
    I remember President Bush claiming he wanted Fannie and Freddie to give 100% mortgages to low income people.

    That you and people like you conveniently ignore Dems like Barney Frank and their role and also the PEOPLE that foolishly put themselves into those situations and instead CONTINUE to fixate on a group of republicans...yeah...you. Put your hat back on and get comfy in it.
    What the hell are you talking about?? Do you even know? Barney Frank was in the minority party until 2007; how do you blame him?? Not to mention, as soon as he became a member of the majority party in 2007, he sponsored a bill with oversight and pushed it through the House, where it passed even though most Republicans voted against it. How do blame Frank?

    Face it, Republicans dropped the ball.

    Wanting to so something doesn't take away the personal responsibility of someone taking the loan. whether someone makes a 100% loan or not doesn't mean the lending institution ignores the ability of that borrower to pay.

    Republican wins Democratic New York House seat - The Washington Post



    Bob Turner, the winner, cast the election as a referendum on Obama’s stewardship of the economy and, in the state’s Ninth Congressional District, which has a large population of Orthodox Jewish voters, the president’s position on Israel.

    I don't really think they'd make their decision based on Obama's statements on Israel. I think they'd listen to the person actually running and their views on Israel.

    That's bull****. If someone is told they qualify for a loan, why would they think they don't qualify? The lenders are to blame. I bet you blame women who get raped for getting raped, huh?

    What if the lending institution inflates the real value of the home being purchased or value of a home in second mortgage situation? Would you say in that case this was a predatory loan situation? Further, lending institution sells the 'paper' to an investment bank who bundles them together and turns them into securities which eventually rated by a rating firm such as S&P as AAA.

    What does that even mean other than you're using it like a crutch to avoid addressing what I said.

    You're blaming a member of the minority party for not passing oversight who sponsored a bill with oversight as soon as his party took control of the House.
