We're you so worried then?
What the Republicans refuse to understand is that in our country the WINNING party governs and the second place winners are supposed to monitor and conduct themselves as a function of overseeing the Ruling party
With OVERSIGHT. Not anger..not petty whining, some racial, because they lost. They lost through fault of their own. No matter how much they want too blame everybody else.
OVERSIGHT, Again something the previous adminstration neglected to provide Americans.

President Ronald Wilson Reagan-Greatest president in my lifetime!
YO DEMOCRATS, BACKSTAB THIS!
it's suicide politics
those aren't "hard core conservatives" at those town meetings, they're NORMAL americans
SENIORS are FREAKING over their heartfelt FEARS
talk to your parents
and ALL their friends
as for approvals, he has plunged in his personals like a pit in every poll this period
and on particulars, he's getting PULVERIZED
quinnipiac produced a plebiscite THIS WEEK that had SEVENTY TWO PERCENT saying they DON'T BELIEVE HIM when he says he can extend insurance to 50 or so million (1/3 of them ILLEGALS) without significantly increasing the deficit
and by 57 to 37 americans said they didn't want health care if it added to the debt
that's syllogism, sir
by telling americans with whom he happens to disagree that they need to shut up and get out of his way, or be ratted out by their neighbors for saying FISHY stuff, he takes normal political opposition and turns it into RAGE
how would you feel if i spoke to YOU like that
and i'm not even POTUS, i'm just lil ol cliffy
he's killing himself
THIS is why bluedogs won't play
his OWN PARTY's CBO
blue governors like bill richardson, christine gregoire, bill ritter, phil bredeson
the freshman formation led by jared polis
the progressive posse, pronounced by ms woolsey
the most INEPT politician i've ever seen, obtuse obama, and i've seen em all
Interesting you should say that considering that according to July 2008 foreclosure statistics most of the foreclosures from the subprime market are in CA, FL, NV and AZ, states that don't have very dense minority population groups.This relaxation was forced upon lenders by liberals, based on the idea that most unworthy applicants were minorities, and that denying thse people was based on race.
That's not entirely true. No, most of the major banks and mortgage lenders didn't want to do subprime mortgages at first, but once the saw how some of the smaller lenders were making bank by leveraging in the mortgage industry the jump on that bandwagon fast! Soon, everyone was making money hand over fist. Only problem was nobody stopped long enough to see that the interest rate on those adjustable rate mortgages would come due on or about the same time w/so many being balloon payments - "pay in full" NOW!And so, "the mess" came from an unsound change in lending prractices, one opposed by those with the most at risk -- the lenders. Had things been left alone, we'd not be in this mess.
I can't agree with you here. The banks and mortgage lending companies (including Freddie and Fanny...especially Freddie and Fanny) along w/AIG were all leveraged to the hilt! What made things worse is that AIG had a large portion of the mortgage backed securities that went so wrong and were calling them in from the banks!! The very banks that weren't getting paid by the homeowners because they mailed in their keys! If folks weren't paying their mortgages, the banks weren't getting paid. If the banks aren't getting paid, AIG's investment in the real estate securities and investment field can't be repaid. The banks can't pay because their operating and reserve funds are tied up just trying to keep them afloat. It was a mad, vicious cycle. Corporate American couldn't fix itself.The solution? Let everyithing run its course, and then revert to the sound lending practices that would -prevent- a 'sub prime' credit collapse. The idea that only government can fix what's currently wrong is absurd, unsound, unsupportable, and championed only by people that stand to gain personal and/or partisan political power from doing so.
Now, that's neither fair nor right. Do your homework; do a websearch on CDO's and/or mortgage-backed securities and then you'll understand what really happened. Don't believe the hype! This mess really kicked off around 2003 and by 2008 the bottom fell out!!Just like a liberal, to make stuff up just so he could bash the other side.

Single payer is socialized medical coverage but not socialized medicine. The means of production namely the hospitals and doctors are still privately owned.
