Aaaaand; anyone who STILL wants to blame our economic troubles on the Bush administration is in serious need of a history lesson (outside of MSNBC News that is).
For starters, you can take a look at this article published in 1999: http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpag...5AC0A96F958260
"may not pose any difficulties during flush economic times. But the government-subsidized corporation may run into trouble in an economic downturn, prompting a government rescue similar to that of the savings and loan industry in the 1980's."
After that, do some further research into the Carter and Clinton Community Reinvestment Act
(I'm not here to dwell on the past, because I know the future is more important; I'm just dispelling another round of this "Bush is at fault" hogwash.)
Have a nice day
