That's total crap. He's yours, a true Blue republican, trickle down economics and all.


Plus Iraq.


You can keep him.
You keep trying to slough off your leftist Bush families and your Obamas onto the right only when they publicly embarrass you.

MSNBC devoted an evening to Jeb 2 nights ago, and NYT wondered repeatedly why you no want Jeb several months earlier. The left has a Bush love affair. Clinton is even a Bush brother by another mother--Barb even said so.

So, you have GOP controlling the House, Senate, White House, Supreme Court and the Fed, and somehow you still manage to think they had nothing to do with it

It's sad, and that attitude guarantees history will repeat itself, and no one will take any responsibility of their mistakes.

Bush actually established a goal to put millions of low income minorities in houses they can't afford.

Quote:
Bush's mission to get 5.5 million low income minorities mortgages when they would not otherwise qualify for them.

Mobilizing the Private Sector: America's Homeownership Challenge

Establish a national goal of at least 5.5 million new minority homeowners before the end of the decade.
Challenge the private sector real estate and mortgage finance industries to dramatically increase their efforts to reduce the barriers to homeownership faced by minority families and to work with the nonprofit sector in a concerted effort to achieve this goal through national and local partnerships.

Convene a White House Conference on Increasing Minority Homeownership, to highlight the homeownership barriers faced by minorities and develop proposed solutions.

A substantial increase of at least $440 billion in the financial commitment made by the government-sponsored enterprises involved in the secondary mortgage market, specifically targeted toward the minority market;

Twenty-five different local initiatives to be undertaken across the nation, geared toward eliminating the specific homeownership barriers faced by minority families in those communities;

A commitment to raise $750 million in below-market-rate investments by 2007, which will work in collaboration with local homeownership initiatives and be targeted to heavily minority program areas;

Pursuing strategic partnerships in 20 top housing markets between homebuilders, lenders, local officials, and community leaders to develop approaches that address the local challenges to building homes for minority families living in urban centers;

Establishing of faith-based housing partnerships between the participants and at least 100 churches, mosques, synagogues, and other faith-based institutions;

Aggressively developing new mortgage products so that conventional market alternatives are available to combat the predatory loan products that are disproportionately targeted to minorities;

Creating new mortgage products to meet the unique needs of recent immigrants;

Dramatically expanding financial education efforts for minorities, providing financial counseling to at least 380,000 minority families, and taking measures at the local level to reduce predatory lending; and

Establishing multilingual, consumer-oriented internet Web sites designed to help minorities overcome barriers to homeownership, including creation of a central data bank of affordable housing programs made available to real estate agents when working with clients.

Pence has backed every free trade deal in the past 15 years. That goes completely against Trump's stance.
Trump has not said he is against trade deals in general, he said he is against bad deals. Of course that's same as saying nothing, since he decides which deal is bad, and which ones are good.

The libertarian candidate said he would have signed TPP into effect, because it seems like a good deal. Trump says its a horrible deal, but I think most people know Trump does not know what's in it.

I will give you credit for this if you get me the source. This not the narrative I have heard. The above is always attributed to Clinton & the Democrats.

He was referring to Clinton's mandate on housing. Both Dem's and Republicans are to blame for the housing crisis. The Dem's do not get a pass - and yes it's sad when supporters won't take responsibility for their mistakes. The plain truth is that we voters are to blame for letting them do it.

It's politicians and their handlers who are the enemy folks -- which is why you want someone not beholden to special interests in there.

So if Hillary gets elected and America doesn't end "like we know it" will you admit your bias influenced you to be WRONG!

Blame whatever politics you want.

It was business that almost took us down. Unfettered capitalism with a lack of proper regulation.

Without financial heads figuring out how to package and then pawn off all their risky and even fraudulent mortgages, this would never have happened, at least to degree.

They first needed the formula. Recipe for Disaster: The Formula That Killed Wall Street | WIRED

Then they needed to figure out a way how to rubber stamp AAA on all the rot and pawn it all off to the world. S&P. High risk crap, which it was, is not nearly so sellable a commodity in the investment world.

Without the business technology and the S&P malfeasance, the whole process would have had to come to a halt much sooner. The volume of completed and pawned off paper would have been much less. And about every neighborhood and community on Planet Earth would not have suffered as a result.

I am not a big fan of Trump and still am undecided on how I vote.

However, I think Newt would answer questions and debate a lot better than Pence. I am a bit shocked that Pence got the VP pick.
