Perhaps Romney needs to create some campaign ads interviewing people like Selma Buycks-Roberson and others in Obamas Chicago neighborhood who have been foreclosed on or filed bankruptcy because of Obamas legal prowess back in the 1990s.

Mitt’s too genteel to do that, but it would be shocking if some GOP related PAC doesn’t do it for him.

It is important to note that during the ‘redline’ period, blaks had the same default rate as whites, indicating that there was discrimination based on the likelihood of repaying, but not based on mere race. Obama’s cure was to have the government guarantee the loans (through Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae). After all, what could go wrong?

In 1994, then President Bill Clinton was responsible for overhauling the mortgage industrys lending policies. One of those provisions was to outlaw redlining practices. Clinton also forced the mortgage companies to lower their lending requirements so more people could secure a mortgage and supposedly own their own homes...it can not be repeated often enough - this is the very basis of the great economic calamity of 2007 and 2008 - when the housing bubble created by these practices and the hyped derivitives built on these mortgages finally collapsed - when Obama and other 'rats yap about not wanting to return to the terrible policies of the past which led to our almost ruined economy, these are the policies they are talking about - they are the people they claim to dislike most - if Republicans don't get all over this, they really are brain-dead.......
Nah, they’d just say it happened in 2008...Bush’s fault.

Save the ads until about 3 weeks before the election.
Remember we are dealing with RATS that have a very short attention span.
The rest of US already know what a low life ZERO really is.

Alynski radical tactics like this and the welfare overload in NY Mayor Guliani had to deal with are testing grounds for larger scale operations as we can see with the mortgage bubble. We are at war and most are oblivious
