    I don't recall President Obama saying anything about $36 billion, when did he say it?

    You really don't pay any attention to actual news reports, do you? Where did the 36 billion dollar number come from and why would this Administration propose expiration of those rates?

As it turned out, loans under CRA performed better than other loans

    The financial crisis is a very complex issue that created by low interest rates causing the price of homes to soar. People used their existing home as a credit card and eliminating the phony equity they had. These mortgages were sold to Wall Street and when the bubble finally burst it had world-wide implications. As long as the lending institution didn't worry about repayment (because the paper was sold), they make more and more risky loans.
    You are factually incorrect, apart from your finding it 'complex', and if you were to go over the details and the time line you'd soon realize how wrong you are. It takes a little time, for sure, and some patience.

    I enjoy debate based on facts and then interpreting those facts in whatever way we might see them, but you obviously have no idea what you're talking about here.

    I would suggest the same for you

    The time line does not support your arguement, not does the punishment for not being in compliance with the CRA

    How can you or anyone believe that Americans think at all.

    Certainly the dumbclucks and crooks they freely elect would tend to show no thought whatsoever.

    Perhaps merely attention to whoever posts the biggest or most garish advert.

    You only have to wait a little for Obama's economic version of Sebelius to "re-educate" you. Of course with the assistance of the government sanctioned Journolists.

    Then everything will be clear. When the Wizards are done with you... up will be down, down will be up, left will be right, and right will be wrong.

Those are verifiable facts that the voter sees instead of buying the rhetoric of how bad things "could have been" without liberals screwing things up.

    I remember well the cries of liberals back when Bush took office, "Where are the jobs?" yet today there is total silence when comparing the reality that we have over 3 million fewer employed people today than we had when Obama took office. So, claiming that this is the strongest jobs recovery in decades ignores the actual facts. No President in U.S. history has ever had this level of unemployment.
    BULLSEYE.

    Added to this is the fact Democrats have controlled the show and didn't require a single republican vote to pass anything... until Brown was elected.

    They had free reign to do whatever they pleased... and they did... and blew it big time.

    What they did accomplish is confusion in the market. Businesses have no idea what economic H-Bomb Obi will drop next, and business people know they will be coming... not just when, who, or how big.

    Obi, though he claimed he would run an open, transparent government, he and his party have been the Queens of Stealth.
