    Plenty of blame to go around. But the companies get the lion's share in my opinion. They rode the gravy train. True, the congress and Fannie Fred allowed it, but a company is made oup of people who are responsible for having a least basic business sense and ethics.

    They didn't open the door but they ran through it, and thought they could get away with it and get bailed out.

    But there is plenty of blame to go around.
    Hey careful man! There's a beverage here!

    Agree. When the market started going through the roof back in '05, I was amazed at what people were doing, bidding the prices through the roof. It's a lot of people's fault for buying more than they could afford or not understanding the basic principles of an ARM.

    Then with SO MANY foreclosures, it seemed too systematic. I can understand people buying over their heads, but with the volume indication, there certainly had to be mortgage companies pushing borrowers into these deals.

    Why were lenders pushing these? Well, obviously FNMA & Freddie Mac were pushing THEM. Who pushed FNMA & Freddie Mac? The Clintons and the Democrats in the name of "affordable housing for everyone who wants one".

    It ALL makes perfect sense now! Liberal stupidity strikes again!

    Companies that loan money to people who clearly weren't qualified ?

    I'm mad at whoever invented the dumass "interest only" mortage so my son could buy a house double the price of what he'd qualify for a conventional fixed-rate.

    Of course the Miami area's housing market is down about 35%, after 3 years, he still hasn't paid down his principle, no equity.......what b.s.:mad:

    There is a story on DU about dead people that received mortgages! I guess as long as they voted dem, it was OK.
    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

    I'd have prefered another choice - but of the choices available I chose the best.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
