Barney Frank says GOP housing attacks racially motivated
AP ^

Posted on 10/06/2008 7:10:38 PM PDT by Chet 99

BOSTON (AP) - Rep. Barney Frank said Monday that Republican criticism of Democrats over the nation's housing crisis is a veiled attack on the poor that's racially motivated.

The Massachusetts Democrat, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, said the GOP is appealing to its base by blaming the country's mortgage foreclosure problem on efforts to expand affordable housing through the Community Reinvestment Act.

Barney could do himself a favor and keep his mouth shut. He doesn’t realize how big a mess he has gotten himself into.

Ugh, no. Targeting minorities and giving them loans they couldn’t affords is RACIST.

Barney Frank, the epitome of impeccable morals, sees fit to lecture us.

Really, these people in Congress do live in a rarefield world all their own.

McCain better not be afraid to make that case or he can't win the election. He must show to the American people that the Democrats are responsible for subprime loaning and that is what cause the present financial crisis.

He should have done this right from the beginning. It is ridiculous they have let this go on for weeks without clearly naming names and making the case against the democrats.

Years ago they called the banks who used “red-lining” racists. Now, people who investigate the ensuing disaster caused by the “cure” are racists.

He's saying that because he hates women. And resents that Sarah's on the ticket. That's the real reason... he's a sexist.

Blah blah blah...

They might want to check and see if hurling around the word “racist” has any power anymore.

That’s the problem with over-using a word like “racist”, especially against people who AREN’T- the power goes away.

Since I assume McCain was afraid of beating the Dems over the head with Fannie and Freddie because he was afraid of being called racist, he might has well start firing with both barrels since they have already played the race card here.

Only true if the loan program was racially targeted. Right?

Very interesting question. Maybe we should see stats...how many poor white people received these loans?

Barney’s defense is itself racist. He blames Republicans for attacking the poor. Only barney has drawn the conclusion that all the poor who have had housing problems are black. Barney Frank is a racist bigot.

“the GOP is appealing to its base by blaming the country’s mortgage foreclosure problem on efforts to expand affordable housing through the Community Reinvestment Act.”

To the extent that the CRA, along with DhimmiRat demands that lenders loosen mortgage underwriting guidelines, created this problem, YES, I’m in agreement with the GOP assessment.

Had banks been left alone, using the credit worthiness guidelines they’d had in place for many years, this would not have happened.

The LibTards have their fingerprints all over this debacle, and they are scrambling like roaches when the light comes on to avoid taking responsibility for their shenanigans.

(Excerpt from Atlanta Journal Constitution, November 4, 2007)
Blacks dominate subprime loans.
By Carrie Teegardin (cteegardin@ajc.com)

National disparity: Lenders aggressively target minorities for mortgages with higher interest rates.

(COMMENT BY DB: GEE, COULD THAT HAVE BEEN BECAUSE, AMONG OTHER THINGS, LENDERS WERE BROWBEATEN AND PRESSURED TO DO SO VIA CHANGES IN THE HORRIBLY MISNAMED “COMMUNITY REINVESTMENT ACT” BY THE LAST DEMOCRAT ADMINISTRATION AND THE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WHO CREATED THIS MESS???)

Black Americans of all income groups were much more likely than whites to take out high-interest “sub-prime” mortgages when buying a home, making them more vulnerable in the ongoing mortgage meltdown.

Nearly half of the blacks who bought a house in 2005 or 2006 ended up in the high-interest mortgage, compared with 13 percent of white home buyers, according to an AJC analysis of federal mortgage debt.

The disparity was striking, even in a comparison of home buyers with similar incomes. Among black home buyers making more than $100,000 a year, 41 percent got a sub-prime mortgage, compared with 7 percent of whites in the same income category.

(For the rest of this piece, you may be able to find it at AJC.COM)

This is why McCain has held back, but it makes no sense.

We must play the race card. Fully. Unapologetically. Ruthlessly. McCain cannot be hurt among black voters, who will never support him anyway. And he can capitalize on bitterness among blue collar and poor whites who never got jack shit from the Feds, but now are getting the shaft. It also doesn't hurt that Obama has surrounded himself with racists his entire career, and has a wife who is a bitter racist and admitted Ivy League affirmative action recipient.
