    But more to the point...you can't ignore the face of Obama's incompetence by running around like Donald Sutherland from invasion of the body Snatchers pointing your finger and shrieking "Buuuuuuuuuuuush! Buuuuuuuuuuuuuush!"
    LOL You are the one ignoring the facts because of your obsession with Obama. Who HAD a Housing bubble and financial meltdown on his watch? If that ever happened while Obama was President I would be the first to complain about incompetence. It really did not take a genius to see what he was letting happen in the housing market would not end well. Read this speech and then tell me how bad what Obama is doing is.

    We are here in Washington, D.C. to address problems. So I've set this goal for the country. We want 5.5 million more homeowners by 2010 -- million more minority homeowners by 2010. (Applause.) Five-and-a-half million families by 2010 will own a home. That is our goal. It is a realistic goal. But it's going to mean we're going to have to work hard to achieve the goal, all of us. And by all of us, I mean not only the federal government, but the private sector, as well.

    5 years into his presidency and All you have are excuses. Across the board incompetence...it's all someone else's fault. Pathetic.

Do you think they are going to be fooled again? We need to get the home market moving inventory so construction workers can get back to work. As long as the Reps. are obstructing investment in infrastructure that is their only hope of a job.
    Bad credit is bad credit.

    Eeeeeeeverything. It's not his fault. He can't influence changes. It's congress. It's Bush. It's not his fault. He had a flat tire. The sun was in his eyes.

    5 years into his presidency and all you have is its Bush's fault. Pathetic.

    I really hate the definition of insanity. I wake up every morning and expect the day to be pleasant, despite it never happening in the past.

    I will also add that construction normally accounts for about 8% of our GDP. Today it's about 5%, about 40% too low.

    exactly. and if real people are able to get into home ownership instead of the rental market, it will have other advantages as well.

    Unpleasant in my perspective on the day, not on the area itself. I live in a lovely rural area that's quite scenic, and isolated enough to root out most idiots who would otherwise bother me.
