Shortsighted economic policies like ...forcing banks to make loans,

Are you guys STILL spouting that "CRA caused the big crash" nonsense? Really?

Well, what should I expect from a guy who INSISTED that there was NO WAY Obama could possibly get more than 277 EV's, and even that number was pretty optimistic.

At one point in the past you weren't detached from reality. Dunno what happened to push you that far into the "blinded by partisan bias" arena, but there you are.

Seriously, drop the "gummint forced banks to make loans" line, it pretty much insures that anyone listening should ignore anything you say. You're in Right Wing Talk Radio territory there.

(BTW, for the record, the overwhelming number of home loans made late last decade were from institutions that were not subject to the CRA, and those loans that were subject to CRA actually had BETTER performance metrics than those which were not. But hey, let's not let any facts get in the way of your ideological bias. Like those damn pre-election polls, we all know Facts Have A Liberal Bias. Keep looking for something, ANYTHING that you can argue supports your beliefs)
