gsgreen: "Let's just state it like it is. The government created the mortgage mess by requiring/encouraging loans to unqualified persons"

no one required lenders to make loans.

"and have now made it a nightmare for qualified persons to get mortgages by the institution of new, confusing and insanely restrictive rules."

Generally better not to attribute to malice what can also be explained by stupidity. I suspect the problem for BG is at the lender level.
