Frist, Hastert and DeLay were asleep at the switch?
Or were they just stuffing their pockets along with all the other Republislime screaming about how sane people (that excludes you) were Un-'Murcan?
2003 was real early times.
Wasn't Bush the Lesser just a minor mass murderer at that point with ambitions for even greater slaughter than he was allow to achieve by his handlers?
Good thing President Frank and President Waters were on hand to keep him in check for a while. Unfortunately Presidents Frist and Hastert were working on behalf of the enemies of the People of the United States (of which you are one) to destroy families and livelihoods for their personal gain.
"Finally, as to the matter of whether government housing policies were a primary
cause of the crisis: for decades, government policy has encouraged homeownership
through a set of incentives, assistance programs, and mandates. These policies were
put in place and promoted by several administrations and Congresses—indeed, both
Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush set aggressive goals to increase home-
In conducting our inquiry, we took a careful look at HUD’s affordable housing
goals, as noted above, and the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA). The CRA was
enacted in to combat “redlining” by banks—the practice of denying credit to in-
dividuals and businesses in certain neighborhoods without regard to their creditwor-
thiness. The CRA requires banks and savings and loans to lend, invest, and provide
services to the communities from which they take deposits, consistent with bank
safety and soundness.
The Commission concludes the CRA was not a significant factor in subprime lend-
ing or the crisis. Many subprime lenders were not subject to the CRA. Research indi-
cates only of high-cost loans—a proxy for subprime loans—had any connection to
the law. Loans made by CRA-regulated lenders in the neighborhoods in which they
were required to lend were half as likely to default as similar loans made in the same
neighborhoods by independent mortgage originators not subject to the law.
Nonetheless, we make the following observation about government housing poli-
cies—they failed in this respect: As a nation, we set aggressive homeownership goals
with the desire to extend credit to families previously denied access to the financial
markets. Yet the government failed to ensure that the philosophy of opportunity was
being matched by the practical realities on the ground. Witness again the failure of
the Federal Reserve and other regulators to rein in irresponsible lending. Homeown-
ership peaked in the spring of and then began to decline. From that point
No, I happen not to know. Perhaps you could elaborate.
Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission Report:
"We conclude widespread failures in financial regulation and supervision
proved devastating to the stability of the nation’s financial markets. The sentries
were not at their posts, in no small part due to the widely accepted faith in the self-
correcting nature of the markets and the ability of financial institutions to effectively
police themselves. More than 30 years of deregulation and reliance on self-regulation
by financial institutions, championed by former Federal Reserve chairman Alan
Greenspan and others, supported by successive administrations and Congresses, and
actively pushed by the powerful financial industry at every turn, had stripped away
key safeguards, which could have helped avoid catastrophe. This approach had
opened up gaps in oversight of critical areas with trillions of dollars at risk, such as
the shadow banking system and over-the-counter derivatives markets. In addition,
the government permitted financial firms to pick their preferred regulators in what
became a race to the weakest supervisor."
They do tend to crapflood financial message boards with quasi-political rantings as Schickelgruber day approaches. There's some tidal influence on the National Socialists that the event exerts.

"The duty of care arises in the tort of negligence, a relatively recently emerged tort. Traditionally, actions in tort were divided into trespass and trespass on the case, or simply ‘case’. Trespass dealt with the situation where the injury was immediate, in other words direct and foreseeable. Actions based in case however, covered consequential injuries in the case of libel or deceit, etc. An underlying problem of this approach was that there was no fundamental principle or test that was applicable to a novel set of facts. A broader formulation was introduced by Lord Esher (then Brett M.R.) in Heaven v Pender  11 Q.B.D. 503. This broader formulation was very much the precursor to the modern doctrine of negligence. Lord Esher, essentially proposing a doctrine of foreseeability, explained why a duty might be owed by one party not to injure another. He stated that “whenever one person is by circumstances placed in such a position with regard to another, that everyone of ordinary sense would at once recognise that if he did not use ordinary care and skill in his own conduct with regard to those circumstances he would cause danger or injury to the person or property of the other, a duty arises to use ordinary care and skill to avoid such danger.”
Negligent misrepresentation of the immediacy of a threat from the Iraqi Navy leading to the deaths and dismemberments of thousands in a jolly little war for political gain might be considered a cause for sequestration into a gated compound in some desert wasteland, for instance; with the possibility of some occupational therapy to facilitate rehabilitation.
"The Census Bureau produces health insurance data from three surveys and one model-based program. Depending on your needs, one data source may be more suitable than another data source. The following is a list of programs from the Census Bureau:
CPS ASEC: The Annual Social and Economic Supplement to the Current Population Survey
ACS: The American Community Survey
SAHIE: The Small Area Health Insurance Estimates Program
SIPP: The Survey of Income and Program Participation
The programs differ in length and detail of the survey questionnaire, the number of households interviewed, the methodology used to collect and process the data, and consequently, in the health insurance estimates produced. As a result, it is important to understand how different surveys and methods produce different results, and when it is appropriate to use each survey or method. More information on each data source is available in the U.S. Census Bureau Health Insurance Data Source Comparison table."
Another? I'm pretty sure that Dubya the Lesser was the planner, the decider and the executioner of all the evils you cheered on and that made you feel so manly as you heard of the great "triumphs" from your keyboard battle station. Perhaps you want to blame others for all the problems you've caused for yourself, that would fit with your general psychopathic tendencies.
Being generous, perhaps you're just confused. Alcoholism, bankruptcy, career failure and paedophilia often leave senile, useless old tards with delusions of adequacy that way, just ask your "sister in law".

Why should I have to, paedo?
Obsessed with genitalia? Particularly male genitalia? What does your "sister in law" have to say about that?
Johnson jokes are presidential.
Laughing about how service members are being killed and maimed on some BS hunt for fake WMDs is presidential.
I understand it's tough living under the brutal oppression of a muslin marxist dictator but it was the price we had to pay to be able to hunt down Mirtocap and bring him to justice. If Delta force's raid into Ciudad Juarez is successful in eliminating Plmowran it will be an even bigger pay-off.
