Quotes from your GOP article: (my emphasis added to a few)It was largely created out of a misguided need (mostly by Democrats) to feel as though America was actually doing something to help the poor own their own homes.
Over the last decade, Democrats like U.S. Rep. Barney Frank, D-MA, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, and U.S. Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-CN, chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, have insisted that these ridiculous loans be made.
Former Attorney General Janet Reno, carrying out the wishes of her boss, threatened legal action against any institution that discriminated or "redlined."
And where were Newt Gingrich and the Republicans in the 1990s when Clinton and his cronies were building this house of cards?
the tax increase passed by Clinton and the Democrats who still controlled Congress during the first two years of his administration. Seniors who had saved and invested for retirement, and who made more than $34,000 ($44,000 per couple) received a tax increase under that plan.

Opinion & a Statement to all current Republicans who like the 2008 version of thier Republican Party.
Oh yes.....It is a fair article in the GOPUSA paper............. in the same way that Auschwitz was a fair solution to Germany's proclaimed problem with Jews!
The fact that you even perceive this piece of trash as fair just goes to show how deeply divided we are in this country. The Republicans have owned the White House for the last 8 years & controlled our Congress for 12 of the last 14 years & yet you guys are trying to sell the current crisis as being equally shared blame
by all of us? The American people don't buy that BS by over a 2 to 1 margin. It wasn't Democrats who have been screaming FREE MARKET or preventing legitimate Congressional oversight for the last 8 years.........& it wasn't the Eskimos....It was you Republicans!
(I wonder what honorable men like Dwight D. Eisenhower or Barry Goldwater would think of their party if they were still alive??......I'm guessing they would be deeply ashamed.)
Stop pointing fingers, start telling the truth for a change ,start to accept some responsibility for your actions & Man Up!
