Here Is The Problem

If you want to know what is to blame for the housing crisis, watch this video.

A school bus driver buys an $800,000 home and now they cannot afford it, but they want Obama to halt foreclosures and responsible people like you and I who buy a house we can afford to bail them out.

Here is the harsh reality - your $800,000 house it is not my problem, I do not want to pay for stupidity. If the loss of investment in the market is a personal issue, than so is the loss of investment in a house.

Its the mortgage dealer who's the criminal, not the mortgage junkie.
Remember that.

This is typical of what I have come to expect from this blog. You jump to blame the poor innocent guy who's just trying to achieve the American Dream and own his home.

Where is our compassion for these poor people. OK, they spent a little beyond their means, but everyone does that. Despite what this person's annual income was, I am confident that he entered into the agreement in good faith and intended to make his mortgage payments. People like you get all hung up on personal responsibility. What will come next, some vitriol on the evils of ridding yourself of credit card for pennies on the dollar?

It is the banks that are the evil wrong-doer in this little story. The banks and the Repubs for pushing them to lower their lending standards. The Dems are here for us, baby. Cradle to grave.

I thank God every day for Obama as he will find a way to help these folks stay in the homes that for which they have worked so hard to buy.

IT TAKES A VILLAGE. Help me out here, Wiley. Don't let them drag these poor sould through the muck.

9:28 an if you can buy an $800,000 home you are not poor and you should be able to read. It is no one's fault but the buyer. You are out of your mind.

Oh and Barney Frank and Smuckey Schumer are responsible for anyone lowering the standards.

9:55 Your a high and mighty idiot. Ever been to college. Do you even have a GED. I didn't think so.

Your comments tell everyone that your a bitter heartless redneck clinging to your gun and your bible, endowed with computer access. Who only wishes their neighbor to fail. If your a real American then America's already done for.

I suppose it would be too much for me to ask for a vehicle upgrade. Had my eye on this sporty little car, but it was just a bit out of my price range.

My American Dream simply won't be complete without it. Please help me Obama.

Frogman, you had it right the first time. 10:21 is a haha, he's just a wee bit inconsistant, which makes his sarcasm difficult to read. Me, I've been consistant since the beginning of time.

Does the warmer weather mean I have a better chance for cardinal?

An 800,000 mortgage with nothing down and a mere 1% interest has a payment of $2573 per month. This does not include taxes or insurance. If a school bus driver can afford that it explains why our school taxes are out of sight.
