    re: Bush Mortgage Bubble FAQs[W:1083,1531]

    Q are you serious? I've heard "Barney Frank said Freddie and Fannie were fine" a million times as if it proved something and now I find out that Bush said it too. I give up. Whats my next question?

    A uh you want to ask me about "dems blocking reform"

    Q fine, did dems block reform?

    A Well since everything else the 'conservative entertainment complex' said was a lie, why wouldnt this be a lie? Now remembering that Bush forced GSEs to buy more low income home loans, got freddie and fannie to buy an additional 440 billion in mortgage backed securities and reversed the restrictions Clinton placed on the GSEs purchases of subprime home loans this will not be much of a shock

    "Strong opposition by the Bush administration forced a top Republican congressman to delay a vote on a bill that would create a new regulator for mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac."

    Despite what appeared to be a broad consensus on GSE regulatory reform, efforts quickly stalled. A legislative markup scheduled for October 8, 2003, in the House of Representatives was halted because the Bush administration withdrew its support for the bill,

    (fyi, broad consensus means it would have probably passed. what happened to it again? oh yea bush stopped it)

    Maggie did not contradict anything Vern said. Bankers caused the housing bubble out of greed while the Bush administration and Congress did nothing to stop them. In fact they did things to protect the banks from anyone who tried to stop them.

    Your post was agreeing with him. You said banks were responsible and so does he. You are both right.

    No. It was put squarely on the back of Bush.

    So posting facts = hatred?

    Why would people not read it. Am I not making clear straightforward points? Am I not posting solid factual links to back up those points?

    Yes I am blaming Bush. But see how I used actual facts to make my case instead of anecdotal stories. Please let me know which clear straightforward point you dont believe.

    That’s not a surprising reply. I find Conservatives often run away from the facts. Before you run away, could you please explain why you want to run away?

    Anyhoo, thanks everybody for the praise. Not one of you could contest anything I posted. You could only whine or deflect. Lets face it, your beef is I posted facts that shred the silly things you want to believe and you cant use your usual excuses to make the facts go away.

    I fear I may vomit if I see another one of your "Q & A" posts.
