Loadstar, Very well stated! Unfortunately, the "Left-stream media" not only looks the other way but is ACTIVELY CAMPAIGNING for Obama (who might better have tried the NBA)!

If you would look at the facts, Clinton allowed the mortgage companies to come into existence, IF, they would do what HE required, and take D credit loans, AND he threw-out the rules that had been put in place after the 80's Savings and Loan scandal, setting the scene for what followed. Bush and scum could not have created the housing bubble that led to the small people being foreclosed on, leading to the loss of jobs, leading to more foreclosures, and the bankster welfare by 0bama, without the ground-work as laid-out by Clinton.

'Inside Job' has these Repub senior execs openly admitting to the fraud that occurred almost to the point of 'self-incrimination'... Like so many, you just listen to talking points rather than doing your research for the facts as they are

“Don’t confuse me with the facts. I’ve got a closed mind.” These words were famously uttered by Rep. Earl Landgrebe (R-IN), a Nixon partisan to the bitter end, at the Watergate hearings. They are all that remain of that legislator’s political legacy. And yet, they reveal a truth. Michael Kinsley defines a gaffe as when a politician tells the truth — some obvious truth he isn’t supposed to say. A statue should be raised in Rep. Landgrebe’s memory for daring to state explicitly one of the governing principles of modern American government: “Don’t confuse me with the facts.”
