Last night, President Obama again tried to revise history by blaming our current financial crisis on the war in Iraq stating We have spent over a trillion dollars at war, often financed by borrowing from overseas. This, in turn, has short-changed investments in our own people, and contributed to record deficits. Of course he and his brethren on the left continue to ignore Fannie Mae and Freddie Macs contribution to the current crisis.
Between the two institutions they have secured nearly sixty percent of the $12 Trillion in mortgages in the United States, a large portion of which were subprime mortgages . The president and his willing accomplices in the media have been blaming George W. Bush for the financial crisis in America; however, the current economic crisis is directly tied to the Democrats dating back to the Clinton Administration.
After being elected, the Bush administration warned both in 2001 and 2003 of the impending financial disaster and attempted to regulate Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It was Democrat Barney Frank, then the Ranking Member of the House Financial Services Committee who defended Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Representative Frank said that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are not in a crisis.
