It's all wall street's fault for being greedy and risking their entire firms by selling toxic waste!--so says 60 minutes. Where did that toxic waste come from? Oh, yes. It came as a gov't program pushed by democrats in the form of mandates and regulations. Democrats demanded that these loans be made, and now their lackies in the press sell the fairy tale that wall street was greedy and shameless for selling the very loans that the democrats themselves demanded be created! If wall street didn't sell these loans, what exactly was supposed to happen to them, mr scott pelley? Notice, too, if you watched, that they couldn't quite summon the outrage for fnm and fre for "betting the firm" and being "greedy" for it's downfall. They couldn't do that, mind you, because it might have led to you know who. The mindless masses that don't know the score probably ate that story up. "We need Obama to clean this stuff up!" Indeed.
