Instead of listening to the campaign blame, read what went on with
Fannie May and Freddie Mac:

http://www.kentucky.com/783/story/561554.html[^]


"McCain's campaign manager, Rick Davis, or his lobbying firm has taken more than $2 million from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac dating to 2000. In December, Freddie Mac contributed $250,000 to last month's GOP convention" McCain says he signed onto the oversight bill, but what would you say if this were Obama? (who also took there money). Dating back to 2000? Let's see - what Republican was running for office at that time? Care to guess?

"Freddie Mac secretly paid a Republican consulting firm $2 million to kill legislation that would have regulated and trimmed the mortgage finance giant and its sister company, Fannie Mae, three years before the government took control to prevent their collapse." - that is, while the Republicans ruled house & senate.

There's a lot of blame and sleeze to go around - but I know who was running the show when these seed were sown, fertilzed, and kept watered - whilst the regulators were kept at bay.

"How do you find out if you're unwanted if everyone you try to ask tells you to stop bothering them and just go away?" - Balboos HaGadol



"It's a sad state of affairs, indeed, when you start reading my tag lines for some sort of enlightenment?" - Balboos HaGadol
