'The government is promoting bad behavior... do we really want to subsidize the losers' mortgages... This is America! How many of you people want to pay for your neighbor's mortgage? President Obama are you listening? How about we all stop paying our mortgage! It's a moral hazard'...

The whole thing pisses me off. All my life I have been fiscally responsible. So who is doing anything for me? Answer .. no-one. In fact, they will end up making me pay more tax to subsidize the losers.

It looks like it pays to be irresponsible. Have plenty of debt and get a good credit report. Have too much debt, declare bankruptcy and screw the creditors. Buy a house you cannot afford and get bailed out by the taxpayer.

At least he kept his frustration and outrage in check. He could have raked Obama over the coals and castigated him alot more. But this is only the tip of the iceberg.

He was ranting again in the last hour today --- I say, good for him as he has the opportunity to let his voice be heard for those of us who unless we were irresponsible are asked to sit down and be silent so that our wonderful govt. can continue to bail out more and more stupid people.

This whole thing makes me so mad!!! I sit as a small business owner, always have been honest and run my business above board --- I guess a good nights' sleep is the only reward!!!

Yea he leans conservative, but he's a market cheerleader. The day he endorses the idea to abolish the Fed is the day he'll earn my respect.
