    That's a big part of the problem, isn't it? Politics is about managing our resources, about where to draw lines on a map, about rational things.

    Why would you let your gut do your head's job?

    Which is pretty much the same for Obama detractors. What is amusing is the Bush defenders who have turned on the most recent incarnation of Bush. Oh God, it's a Democrat! Ignore he's doing many of the same crackpot policies that Bush did, the person we defended!

    Ok so we can't blame Obama when he fails to fix our economy (pretty far out of his control as an individual) but we can blame bush for individual citizens taking out loans they couldn't afford? Ok, I got it now. I just needed to clarify that.

    So can every person who was ever shot blame our founding fathers for the second amendment? After all, we can't possibly blame the guy doing the shooting, right? Oh wait, you mean you can't blame someone for someone else's actions simply because a 3rd party they gave them the ability to? That's what I thought. Grow some balls and admit Obama failed and failed because of his own damn decisions and stop blaming bush. That's horrendously childish behavior. Obama continues to be the do-no-wrong president. God for heaven people grow up.

    If the economy became bushs puppy on Jan 20th 2001 and Clinton can't be blamed for anything that happens past that date then this economy became obamas on jan 20 2009 and bush can't be blamed for anything happening past that date. Anything different and you're a worthless political hack who's opinion isn't worth the bandwidth on the forum, no matter which way you lean.

    Actually most could afford the loans until they lost their jobs.

    Nope. Most could afford the loans until the interest rates went up and they couldn't refinance.

    they were counting on houses continuing to appreciate so they could refi before the adjustables and balloon payments WHICH THEY KNEW WERE COMING came due

    when housing depreciated, instead...

    So they could afford the home when they purchased it. The number one reason for foreclosure is loss of job or change in employment. That's what got the foreclosure ball rolling.

    "Countrywide Financial, the largest mortgage company in the country, also cites economic performance as a cause of foreclosures. Countrywide released its findings on the main reasons for foreclosure, which was reported in about 80 percent of the cases. Countrywide attributed "curtailment of income" as the primary factor 58 percent of the time. This far exceeds some of the other reasons:

    * Illness or medical reasons made up 13 percent of foreclosures.
    * Divorce came in at 8 percent.
    * An inability to sell the house clocked in at 6 percent."
