    Not only that but Obama abstained from taking a position. McCain WAS right in his assessment. Granted both parties got us to this point but is was republicans that identified the red flags prior to the collapse and tried to push democrats into instituting stiffer oversight of Freddie & Fannie. Republicans should have pushed forward anyway even after the legislation was defeated. Democrats clearly were the party that DIDN'T want more regulations yet the gop seems to get the label pasted on them. The biggest disaster in a century was caused because democrats DIDN'T want further oversight like the gop did.

    Please watch the entire video segment so our issues are based on the topic at hand and not some made up propaganda.

    I saw that in the news. Congress is not happy about it. Our tax dollars hard at work.

    Republicans had the majorities, Gramps, Republicans are the most responsible, though I think Dodd and Frank should be held culpable for their nonsense.

    Every democrat "according to the clip" voted against the legislation that the gop proposed to stop the Freddie/fannie train wreck.

    Yes, the gop held the majority but feared the legislation could not be forced through a democrat opposition. As I clearly stated they should have tried anyway.

    I thought it was greed that made all of these poor people buy houses and cars they couldn't afford. {aside from demorats forcing banks to give loans to those making 20-30K a year} then they bought the 250K homes,,and borrowed more money against the home equity,,,,HEY,,,WE BOUGHT A NEW HOME !!! AND WE HAVE 50k in Equity !!! Lets go use it to buy a truck and a few Large Screen TV's !!!!
