    "The Obama administration is engaged in a broad push to make more home loans available to people with weaker credit, an effort that officials say will help power the economic recovery but that skeptics say could open the door to the risky lending that caused the housing crash in the first place.
    President Obama’s economic advisers and outside experts say the nation’s much-celebrated housing rebound is leaving too many people behind, including young people looking to buy their first homes and individuals with credit records weakened by the recession.
    In response, administration officials say they are working to get banks to lend to a wider range of borrowers by taking advantage of taxpayer-backed programs — including those offered by the Federal Housing Administration — that insure home loans against default."

    Really? For years?

    Can you pinpoint those years?

    The reason I ask is that I'm not sure they've really had that many years in which they COULD be an opposition Party...at least, when compared to the number of years they were the controlling Party.

    Which is further evidence they can be bought. Liberals complain about all the money Bush spent on law and order, but I do not recall New York City or any blue states refusing that money.

    Re: Is obama insane, stupid or malicious?

    Just my .02¢ about the housing. I follow this because I'm a recent landlord and buying houses is "my business".

    What I think is going on right now is a disproportionate amount of home sales are going to investors. Indeed, investors have pretty much shut out legitimate home buyers. A few months ago, I was given to understand that Fannie/Freddie would waive to the appraisal requirement. My first reaction was WTF!!! but I can see that if they don't, nobody will get a house because most homebuyers need credit and investors don't. So, now a private buyer can outbid a cash investor and yes, housing prices have jumped sharply. But, at least in my area the prices are literally back to where they were 20 years ago and even if they increase, housing is a lot more rational than it was in 2004-6.

    Just to use my own home as an example, it sold for $225K in 2005. I bought it for $63K in 2009 and in 2011 I bought an identical unit for $45K. Now, I see they are asking $65K and even if a lower credit buyer gets it, the intrinsic value is still greater than the retail price. In short, this is no way anything like the craziness of 2005.

    To me, the worst years were the 90's....................Though, nothing probably tops the virtual wholesale endorsement of GOP policies post 9/11

    Good evening, Bonz.

    Maybe the word "opposition" means something different to you than it does me, but they sure looked like the opposition party when Bush was President! I think BHO's decision to turn things over to Reid and Pelosi was the wrong one, but I understand why he may have done so. He was new on the job, and both of them had been around forever, and knew the ropes. It was a natural way to avoid making mistakes, but as it turns out he could have chosen better. The good news for him is that Pelosi and Reid are taking the heat that he would have gotten, so maybe his decision was the right one...for him! It did cost him dearly in 2010 midterms, though, and he acknowledged that fact that by calling it a "shellacking!

    None of the above. Or, let's say, no more malicious or insane than your average politician, regardless of party affiliation.

    Both people on the right who demonize Obama and people on the left who idolize him seem oblivious to his most obvious quality: The man is deeply, profoundly mediocre. Unremarkable in every aspect of his public persona. From his terrible economic and fiscal policies to his belated positive promise on gay rights and immigration reform, he is a repeater and follower - not any kind of leader or trailblazer.

    His oh-so-scary socialist ("liberal" in our nonsensical political jargon) ideology is merely an averaged and diluted version of the consensus that long dominated the minds of center-left Americans - for so long, as a matter of fact, that it already sounds archaic and reactionary to outsiders.

    I think ten, twenty years from now, this presidency will be viewed not as an onslaught of dark forces or a long-overdue arrival of enlightened reformers, but as a period of repeated mistakes and wasted time. With Obama himself dwindling into a footnote.
