    Today's email chuckle:

    This is sheer genius

    In a bid to stem taxpayer losses for bad loans guaranteed by
    federal housing agencies Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac, Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn) proposed that borrowers be required to make a 5% down payment in order to qualify. His proposal was rejected 57-42 on a party-line vote because,

    as Senator Chris Dodd (D-Conn) explained,

    "passage of such a requirement would restrict home
    ownership to only those who can afford it."

    I can't add anything to this.

    Hey, go back to Snopes and read the last paragraph of their "explanation".

    Corker proposed an amendment, Dodd said it would be a disadvantage to those without the down payment.

    Tomato, tomahto.

    If you can't come up with a down payment how the hell can you pay the morgage?
    I had to have a down payment and a closing cost. What a crock! Some folks are just plain stupid and you can't fix stupid. That's why were in the crap were in now. When I got married the morgage was based on what I made not both husband and wife. If the wife got pregnant the morgage would not be paid. Some where alone the way this was ruled out. How many of your friends are still married after 10 years? I'm going on 45 this November, and to the same girl.

    It never ends. Liberal pukes will defend other liberal pukes,,,REGARDLESS,,,of said or implied idiotic statements.


    The problem is much deeper and far more serious than hussein obozo, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the "Prince of the Fools" should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

    The Republic can survive a hussein obozo, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president. Liberals are a disgrace.

    When I saw this thread I thought yall was talking about our own Bob Dodd.

    So I was going to jump in and agree that he is a genius but since I don't watch tv then I can't comment on the other dodd at the present time.

    halfmile posted here, and inaccurately attributed a satirical statement, written by a satire writer named John Semmens, to Chris Dodd.

    Dodd never said those words.

    How can you guys read it any differently?

    I don't care for Senator Dodd's politics, same as you.

    But if you want to find fault with those with whom you disagree politically, at least have the dignity to quote them accurately.

    Attributing inaccurate or misleading statements to people for the sole purpose of making them look stupid, fails. It makes you look stupid, not them.

    That was the purpose of my post.

    What a novel idea. Having to put 5% down in order to purchase a home. I don't care what Dodd was quoted as saying. His vote against such legilastion shows exactly who he supports. He is as guilty as any banking institution for the mortgate crisis. You are who you sleep with. And he has been in bed with Freddie and Fanny all along. He has no intention of making it right now. He is a liberal scumbag that expects taxpayers to keep ponying up for the deadbeats. If you like his ideas defend him if not do what you can do rid congress of another socialist pig.

    It doesn't matter if he said it or not. DA Dodd and Barney have cost this economy more jobs than Carters have liver pills.

    Blame big business, the banks, or anyone else, but the fault is the American "give away" of unearned benefits. (Fanny Mea/Freddie Mac)

    Proof that if you didn't earn it, you won't respect it....... or work hard to keep it.

    glenn mcleod, quote: <i>"Those 2 statements say the same to me. How can Snoopes read it differently?"</>

    Because the people who run Snopes are liberals.

    There is a definite bias there, sometimes very subtle, sometimes just shy of blatant. The key is to read between the lines. For example, there was an email going around with a lot of "facts" about Obama. The number varied from around 40 to as high as 70, as some were added when the email made the rounds.

    Were all of these "facts" true? No. Many were not.

    Were SOME of these "facts" true? Yes, they were.

    But here is where the subtle bias of Snopes kicked in. Snopes rejected ALL of the "facts" as false, but only cherry picked out a handful, and condemned all of the rest without examining them.

    Snopes has its uses, but don't take everything they say or conclude at face value.

    The last paragraph on the snopes comment tells what Dodd said, and though it's not what the referenced email reported, It is in the same vernacular. People without a down payment would be "denied" home ownership. Boo Hoo. I bought 3 houses and paid 20 % down on all of them.

    Our country is foundering from allowing people to make dumb purchases without having any skin in the game. How people like Dodd, Frank, Geithner, Schumer, et al weaseled their way into the halls of power is a damn shame.

    Let there be absolutely no question that Chris Dodd and I are in any way related. I'm sure he can trace his last name back to some "old country" while I got mine from a grandfather who assumed his Dodd moniker when he ran away from his 1890s home and didn't want to be found by extra stiff parents. This was well before social security cards and other means of tying down one's identity. Were he to have kept his original name, I would be a WULFF. Not sure I care much for the name Bob Wulff!......breakemall.....Bob Dodd

    Bob,,

    You've been around here since before the Dead Sea was sick, and we have all read your excellent posts throughout that time. I seriously don't believe one reader thought negatively of you because of the title.
