    No, I know what you are saying, and believe me, it is NOT what I thought was acceptable at the time when Bush was touting this as acceptable either. But IF I read you correctly, either you are saying that 'it's ok because Bush did it too'... or, you are saying that these jobs are acceptable to you because it is your choice for President carrying the banner, and using these numbers as success. Neither in my opinion is a very positive light shining on your POV with respect to this.

    sunday:

    More than 28 percent of U.S. homeowners owed more than their properties were worth in the first quarter as values fell the most since 2008, Zillow Inc. said today.

    Homeowners with negative equity increased from 22 percent a year earlier as home prices slumped 8.2 percent over the past 12 months, the Seattle-based company said. About 27 percent of homes were “underwater” in the fourth quarter, according to Zillow, which runs a website with property-value estimates and real-estate listings.

    Home prices fell 3 percent in the first quarter and will drop as much as 9 percent this year as foreclosures spread and unemployment remains high, Zillow Chief Economist Stan Humphries said. Prices won’t find a floor until 2012, he said.

    Thank God Obama is still destroying the housing market. I need about 6 weeks to get my self together on a bid, and then I can take advantage of the market.

    i understand

    being an aged california public school teacher who paid off his house when he was 51, i have a huge surplus income and nowhere to put it

    i believe in real value, whatever that is, but these days it might be an 18 wheeler full of guns

    or a big tank of gasoline

    a house, even if paper is worthless, still has some instrinsic worth

    i feel forced to move up

    my point---when home prices are low, the differential between my modest 3 bedroom and that mini mansion in the gated retirement community is constantly shrinking

    so i wait

    and i don't really want to move, i finally got this place exactly like i want it

    oh well

    we all got problems in tuff times like these

    stay up

    Remember, "It Takes a Village" which no apparently means that is what it takes to protect Obama for the disastrous results of the Obama Administration and to divert to the "everyone else does it" defense which now seems to make it right.
