    Post a link to the chart, please. It's too small to read.

    you know, what's kind of interesting... i've been searching around for where that info came from...and I've found it repeated in an awful lot of blogs...

    WITHOUT A SINGLE SOURCE for the info...

    goody... I think I'll make up stuff, put it on a blog and see how many loonies repeat it without ever checking it's accuracy.

    Babble is a Dem?

    What difference does it make, unless your point is that Bush is screwing Dems into the ground with his socialization of corporate losses.

    I saw that, too. The Democrats were able to make a lot of money from Fannie and Freedie because they pushed loans for minorities.

    That's a link to Drudge allright... It doesn't link me to where the numbers come from near as I can see though. Perhaps you'll link me directly?

    Though while I was there, I did find this...which you might have missed:

    Just do a google search of 'Top Recipients of Fannie'. There are several links, so you can take your pick. I'm aware that both Democrats and Republicans are part of this scandal, yet 95% of Americans will still vote for them.
