Ok, I have mulled this over for a few hours and feel the need to respond.
My issue with any video that has been "sliced and diced" as this that it may or may not show the full truth. Slicing and dicing videos, speeches etc are generally done to prove a point
, the opinion and point of view of the person or group presenting the video or soundbite. I have the same issue when a sentence or two is pulled out from a speech to prove someone's point of view. Show me what was said before and after - - better yet let me read or hear the entire speech, then I can have the full picture to base my opinion on. Example, I give a speech and someone who wants to prove I am a bigot pulls out a sentence that says
All white middle class men hate women
From that one might assume that is what I really believe and that I am myself a bigot. But the sentence before and after stated
A recent study by Group XXX showed the following. All white middle class men hate women. Please be clear that other studies conducted by Groups ABC and XYZ have found that to be false. I myself do not believe the Study by XXX to be valid
Sure changes that once sentence doesn't it.
I would venture an opinion that in 04 there were many from both sides
espousing the views in this video, republicans that felt Fannie and Freddie were sound and democrats that felt the opposite. As Bonnie stated, there is enough blame to go around.
After all if we believed everything we read and hear, one would believe that Bimmer dislikes me since his avatar says he wants to imagine a world without liberals and I am one. But I'm sure that is not the case, in fact Bimmer doesn't even know me and probably has little, if any opinion of me.
No one party, no one group of people, no one person has all the answers and all the truths
