This proves her either ignorant, stupid, mendacious, or a combination of those characteristics. It was the Congressional Democrats who threatened lenders with sanctions if they didn’t lend money to those who couldn’t service their loans. Barney Frank and Christopher Dodd were the primary culprits (aided and abetted by Maxine Waters). Jamie Gorelick (she of “The Wall” — which was erected to prevent the intelligence folks from sharing incriminating info concerning Bill and Al’s “funny money” escapades with the Red Chinese with the FBI’s criminal sleuths) also had her hand in the till. Chris Dodd holds the record for “campaign contributions” from Mae/Mac ($134K, 1989 - 2008). Kerry ($111K) was second. In third place was Obama ($106K). It is worthy of note that Obama amassed that much pelf in only three years. Perhaps the lenders remembered his stints as an ACORN rabble-rouser/corporate counsel and figured that it was easier to just pay up.
Several times during the Bush administration, attempts were made
to tighten the regulatory screws on sub-prime lending. Each time,
Congressional Democrats fought —and blocked — those
efforts. Sorry, Ms. Block — it is your DNC talking-points
which merit the pooper-scooper treatment.

GEORGE W. PATTON
George W. Bush is comparable to George Patton (bear with this);
tough, religious, very flawed, and naturally distinct from the
mugging George C. Scott portrayal. I voted for Gore and Kerry but
refuse to second guess history and prefer Dubya to the
egomaniacal LBJ. Not to mention George C. Scott.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
