November 9 Debate Transcript: Now I want you to take particular note that he is speaking with respect to his part as a consultant, er, "historian" in the year 2006. 2006. And he fails to mention he actually worked for their top lobbyist for seven years. Take note, too, how he also concocts this heroic story of himself. He is told by Freddie Mac they were being forced to make bad loans and Newt the Wonder Horse rides into town and declares this is insane. He says "this is a bubble". And just to drive the point home, he says the GSEs should be broken up. Well, I missed last night's debate, but I have been perusing the transcipt, and it appears Mitt Romney has read the same Q&A session Newt had with Freddie Mac that I have. He made a passing reference to it: As happens every time more information comes to light about him, Newt begins to subtly change his story: What a pathetic attempt at a diversion! He continues: Now I want you to note he says "in the early years". Okay. But what things did Newt have to say about the GSEs in the later years? What did he have to say on the very eve of the destruction of our economy? What did he say in 2007? This: Market-Based Models Are Key to Transforming U.S. Government to a 21st Century Organization - Freddie Mac Read that. Over and over. Let every sentence sink in and see if each one is not EVERYTHING conservatives have been screaming about. See how each one completely contradicts his hero story. See how he favors the GSEs keeping their charters. How he praises their model! On and on. Think about every rabid raving about Freddie Mac you have ever heard from conservatives. How it was the Democrats and their desire to get more people into homes that killed us. How they did it by forcing the GSEs to make loans. How the GSEs completely destablized the economy and how dear Dubya tried to stop them. Look how Newt tries to cash in on that in the November debate. "It was insane!" I told them! I donned my cape and tried to stop them, BUT NOooooooo! They didn't listen! What a scumbag piece of lying shit. He heaps glowing praise on Freddie Mac and the bang-up job it is doing getting people into homes. He was being paid to advise their top lobbyist how to lobby lawmakers to keep the GSEs growing and going. He loves GSEs so much, he says there should be more of them in the paragraph preceding that one. This is one lie he won't be able to laugh off.
