I just had someone tell me how Liberals caused the housing crisis by "encouraging poor people to buy homes they couldn't afford".
What the hell?! It was Republican programs and initiatives that promoted home ownership for low income families (who couldn’t afford to buy homes in the first place). When the Republican-dominated congress passed the "American Dream Down Payment Initiative", President Bush promptly signed it - and it was Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac who ended up having to take on unnecessary risk by purchasing the mortgages from the banks.We all know what happened next.
I hate revisionism...especially when people do it to their own memories. Hypocrisy is never pretty, no matter the cause.
