This made putting off the inevitable no longer possible.

Blame, blame, blame.

No mention of the National Intelligence Estimate of October '02 on Iraq. How come? Doesn't fit the "blame Clinton" line?

I'd wager you couldn't provide a single credible reference to anything to support that silly statement. Who am I kidding, you're a Republican, of course you can't. Duh!


I vote this the dumbest and saddest statement ever entered into these forums.


Was it Reagan or GHWB who repealed Glass-Steigall at the request of Citicorp so they could merge with the Traveler's Group to form Citigroup?

"Clinton vowed to veto the Senate version of the bill unless it was re-written to include "requirements that banks make loans to minorities, farmers, and others who have had little access to credit."

YouTube - EVIDENCE FOUND!!! Clinton administration's "BANK AFFIRMATIVE ACTION" They forced banks to make BAD LOANS and ACORN and Obama's tie to all of it!!!


So after Carter invited the invasion of Afghanistan (30 days later) by allowing our military ally in Iran to fall, what should have been the US response?

One day you too will be able to form your own opinion.
Apparently, you not only hate George W. Bush,...you hate intellectuals as well. That figures,...ignorance compounded by hatred for the more intelligent.

Historians support their analysis of various administrations with FACTS. To equate your opinion with those of scholars is quite amusing. Keep on writing,..I have always enjoyed the Three Stooges.

If you're trying to make the case that Clinton simply punted all of his unfinished business to Bush, I agree.

Key Judgments: Iraq's Continuing Programs for Weapons of Mass Destruction

The Democrats were right and we had every reason to believe that Iraq was concealing WMDs. Stockpiles of yellow cake, chemical agent precursors and biological weapon growth medium in addition to traces of chemical weapons in soil samples all point to an active WMD program that was interrupted.

Now please folks,..inform us about Obama's college records at Occidental and Columbia, and why those records have been closed to the voting public.

As for the "alcoholic" comments from the leftist haters,...let it be known that Obama is not pure as wind-driven snow,...he'll snort a line or two and smoke a little dope,..by his own admission. Used dope,...and may still be using, No one knows.....
What a sad joke.

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.
These are simply beginning efforts in what is meant to be an ongoing challenge to the private sector. To continue finding new strategies to expand opportunities, and in order to maintain a strong focus on this goal, the White House will convene a conference on increasing minority homeownership, both as a forum for continued discussion of how best to tear down the barriers to homeownership and to promote successful strategies that expand opportunities.
