    Sure, households who had a severe loss of incomes and could no longer make their mortgage payments.....were "stupid".

    LOL Why don't you answer the question I asked? The ONLY reason I brought up Bush promoting homes was because Bronson trying blame the Democats for doing the same thing.

    People who signed up for "make your payment" loans or adjustable 3/1,5/1 mortgages under the guise that they would inflate their home's value to cover the potential risk were stupid.

    What is important as a basis in any discussion is honesty.

    There is nothing wrong with promoting home ownership but the problem was Democrats refused to legislate to prevent abuse of the system and you want to blame Bush for that. You have yet to acknowledge that it wasn't Bush alone that created the housing crisis and that is the point. Stop blaming Bush and accept responsibility on behalf of Democrats

    Libertarian means anyone of that persuasion, which you claim to be
    Your decision to discuss it has lead to a red herring.

    Not all is right and that is the point.
    What point? You can't have it both ways. In one hand you say the financial crisis was not that bad (all we needed was patience) and on the other you say "not all is right". Which is it?

    In the private sector there are going to be failures and successes, not all banks wanted TARP money and that is the point. I stand by my point

    Banks that didn't take TARP are in better shape than peers - Sep. 11, 2009
    A blog post from 2009 is of no interest to me. Recapitalization was a necessary step in regaining confidence in the financial sector.

    Nor is yours, I am waiting for who those people are that lost wealth since apparently you and millions of others including me aren't among them. Maybe I am indeed smarter than many here but don't tout in and certainly am not given any credit for it
    You have been provided the data. Aggregate real net wealth is not at 2007 levels. This is simply a matter of fact.

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    This represents what share of total mortgage defaults? If you cannot provide the evidence, it makes little sense to make talking points.

    As I recall the recession began in December 2007 for fiscal year 2008 when Democrats controlled the purse strings and the legislative agenda. I am sure Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi were excited about reigning in Freddie and Fanny as well as cutting back on home loans
