For those who got loans that were over their heads, YES.

But most of this issue has to do with administrative decisions within the banking system allowed by administrative decisions within the Bush Administration.

If those two groups took honest accountable responsibility for their actions and inactions and decisions and we then took that part of this problem off the board we would find a very, very small problem left to address and attach blame. The media and Congress would not even see it on their radar.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

He looked up to and respected our deposed Howard FFS (from his own mouth on a recent ABC retrospective of the former PM).

How anyone could 'look up to and respect' that little worm (who not only lost his government but also his seat in the House) is incomprehensible and demonstrates just what kind of a fuckwit your CIC is...
