Welcome to the SILLY SEASON, called MID-TERM ELECTION DAY POLITICS. Even Senator Bernnie Sanders, I/VT gets face time in this video.

Fannie and Freddie caused the meltdown. How else did you think the sub-prime mortgages got marked backed by the full faith and credit.
inspectors not doing their job and drilling too far out to please eco wacko’s had more to do with it.
you bet fannie and freddie caused it.
The Pravda Media calls him an “Independent” but he is a SOCIALIST.
Joe Lieberman is an independent, the Democrats kicked him out of the Democrat Party. So Democratic of them.
I say it’s Vermont’s fault.
I blame maple syrup.
Democrats have given up on even making a pretext to being honest these days. Lying really is in vogue in the party of corruption and dishonesty.
I thought he was killed in some sort of restaurant-based accident with Ted Kennedy and Sheets Byrd.
What a shame.
I heard a guy on the radio this morning say that positions on this bill broke into 3 camps:
1) Republicans who are just going to say No to anything without considering whether it would help the country or not.
2) Pragmatic people who will seek compromise and help in some ways and hurt in other ways as they do not really root out the real problems (Chris Dodd was in this well-meaning but too soft group).
3) Smart people who understand the problem thoroughly and who are trying to really do the right thing and fix the system (Socialist Bernie Sanders was in this group).
Unbiased media on display.
Actually it was a dumb ass ‘company man’ on the rig in a hurry to fill out some paperwork.
Bwarney Fwanks Fannie caused it.
Maybe MMS and SEC need more porn filters.
Irresponsible BORROWERS lead to financial crisis.
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are literal creatures of government regulation and the only reason to drill 50 miles out to sea and a mile deep is the government regulations have limited access to more economically viable sites .
I blame socialism.
Someone please remind Bernie that Bill Clinton signed the repeal of Glass-Steagall.
Sanders knows nothing. Why would ANYONE pay an attention to what this self proclaimed socialist says?
Deregulation! what deregulation? Get specific, what deregulation is he talking about, name it. There is no deregulation, government is a monster growing like the blob, there has been no deregulation since the Reagan administration. I challenge anyone to name for me what has been deregulated!
