OleUncleJoe . . . I love your multi-piece post so much I had to edit it back to shape and email it to a few friends. You are missing a key piece (or maybe I missed it). Where did those toxic assets come from? From the LIBERAL policy of pressuring lenders to lend to poorer people who could not afford to buy a house. Sure it allowed these people to enjoy the America Dream of home ownership who would not have been able to, . . . until the interest rates started to rise and they couldn't afford the payments on their mortgages any more. How many people think (raise your hands, now) that any self-serving, greedy bank would lend money to people who can't afford to make the payments unless someone is pressuring them to . . . .

Teacher, don't you know that these lenders were tackling people as they passed their lending institutions. These "predatorory" lenders caused it all according to the demonrats.

Breaking news: The Fishwrap of Record has finally discovered that the Obama administration gives its Chicago corporate pals special access to power and regulatory favoritism. On Thursday, The Not-So-New York Times published an A1 story titled "Ties to Obama Aided in Access for Big Utility."

Everyone, put on your shocked faces!

"With energy an increasingly pivotal issue for the Obama White House," the Times intoned, "a review of Exelon's relationship with the administration shows how familiarity has helped foster access at the upper reaches of government and how, in some cases, the outcome has been favorable for Exelon."
