And while you are blaming someone, who should be laud for trying repeatedly to force oversight and constraint on Freddy and Fanny, and blame for shooting down all their atttempts?

Are you by any chance referring to McCain's 2005 attempt to stop the excesses at Fannie and Freddie? And whose bill was blocked by Democrats who got the lion's share of contributions from those organizations? And that Obama got the second-highest amount of contributions of any congressman? And that Mr. Raines, who was forced out of the CEO job at Fannie after having been discovered to have been cooking the books, was an informal advisor to Obama? And that Mr. Johnson, another Fannie CEO, was a campaign staff member of Obama's until being tossed under the bus with all the other crooks, racists, terrorists and a white grandmother?

I just want to make sure I understand your post correctly.
