    Look People, the story is not loans given to credit risk Americans, but rather that BHO had his hand on this CRA Time-Bomb that just happened to blow-up on President Bush watch. BHO rode this theme all the way to the White-House "It's Bush's fault" and the media echoed this phrase for years and is still doing so. Three things stick-out in my mind about BHO or HIM either name will do for now. It's either BHO is the luckiest politician ever, or He is very cunning in his ability to set a trap so far back that it blew up at just the right time, or He is getting help from someone with GREAT powers either God or the Devil ...you be the judge?

    That's not forcing them to make bad loans. That's saying "You make the same loans to black people as you do to white people".

    p.s. how many of the top 10 subprime lenders were covered by CRA?

    GOD forbid they worry about discriminating when loaning money to people that can,t pay it back.
    The point is the oaf, sued to get them to make the loans and still takes no responsiblity

    Yes, but the banks needed it to look like they were forced to give bad loans.

    the bank supports the politician to get elected, in turn the politician scratches the banks back, the politician gets elected and he scratches some more, the bank leaves money laying on the politicians desk, scratch, scratch, the bank is making some bad loans and need gov't help so they leave more money scratch, scratch, bank gives away too much money and needs bailed out scratch, scratch, Bank gets large sums of taxpayer money and leaves some on the politicians desk, scratch, scratch.....

    he sued them to make them loan money to people who could not afford to repay the loan. That is why we are in this mess
  • Grabitz POODYLO... 2011/12/08 17:32:53

    I just have a hard time believing that is the reason . I'm seeing the work all outsourced and the working class getting laid off with many and many unemployed or underemployed could not afford to pay their loans . Do you really believe people put down a huge down payment just to watch the banks take their homes ? Come on poodylou .

    Just a couple years ago you could buy a house with nothing down. Loans were easy to come by.

    Still all and all I'm sure people had their dreams of owning a home and had good intentions of paying them off and keeping a good credit rating . No way you can convince me that millions of people did this on purpose at the same time . The odds of that would have to be a billion to one .

    I think the people thought they could wing it, I am sure the banks knew that they could not. A well as did Fannie and Freddie. Of course to the Ultra wealthy a bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush!

    This is true Poodylou , I know when I first started off I was winging it as a young man and had one hell of a time in the first recession we had . If it wasn't for the family I would have sunk like many did even back then . With no jobs all being given to the commies how do you expect people to pay ? It just seems to me your all pushing the blame on the poor . You all make it look like the poor has no right what so ever to pursue the American dream . for most they have to start off from somewhere , not all are born with the silver spoon in their mouth . Some win some lose and in these crappy time we just ended up with a lot of losers and i blame this on the outsourcing . Did you know that China is a communist country and trying to dictate to us as what and where we can go and do ? All wile our treasonous American corporation is feeding them making them the strongest country in the world . Is this what you all really want ?

    During this time1998 through 2006 John and I was continuously offered loans we knew we could not afford. When we bought our house the kept trying to get us to buy a house that cost double. Our plan was to buy something we could afford if we ever had to live of just one of our incomes. China is dictating to our government as much as our government is dictating to us. I have never said a poor person should not pursue the American Dream, but, be realistic and buy within your means. I do not want to lose every thing I have worked for because others do not understand the term personal responsibility!!

    The fact of the matter is that China OWNS us! That you can blame on American Politicians who have increased the debt ceiling and the Treasury for giving money to foreign banks over the past several years. You can blame that on the war machine that insists on spending $2 a week on wars that do not involve us.

    Anyone who backs Obama and his Corporate puppet masters need to rethink what they want! NOT ME!

    Well the only being that OWNS ME is GOD himself . If you keep bowing before your money masters you have a serious problem . Personally I did not create this debt this country is in and will now bow before the great money Gods , let Bush and Obama do the bowing its just not in me they created it so hold both of them responsible and let my people go and prosper just as i hope you prosper as well as I am .
