    Personally I think Moore looked pretty weak on it...outside the WMD part. Sean was more correct on Afghanistan and Al Qaeda. I wish they had actuly talked about movie and bail outs more, since I thought that was the issue to be had here.

    I love listening to Hannity insist the CRA caused the crash. It just reminds me how clueless his audience is.

    Kinda thought that was why Hannity kept poking the Al Qaeda questions at Michael Moore...Sean couldn't argue about the current movie so to catch Michael off guard...IMO...Sean just kept firing the old redundant questions at him {kept Michael off his game and it would make Sean look BRILLIANT}. Hannity is pretty transparent ;)

    So you do not beleive that people were given mortgages, that they could not afford,
    has nothing to do with the mortgage crisis?
    Are you nuts?

    the facts are that it was deregulation, that allowed commercial banks and investment banks to merge, this merger led to the creation of financial products that made the issuing of loans to people who couldnt afford them PROFITABLE, as the large investment banks were able to bundle these loans, sell them, offset their books, pay their own regulators to give them triple A ratings, and thus scam the system and puncture holes in Capitalism itself.

    The CRA did not FORCE banks to give loans to people who couldn't pay them. The Profitability of those loans provided the motivation to give as many of them as possible.

    Profit motivation

    Im not saying that bad loans wasn't a MAJOR factor in the collapse, it certainly was one of 3 major factors. But the rhetoric that it was this sides fault, because of this one thing... .... frankly, its just stupid. Big problems, have big causes. Trying to sum them up on the one thing you can use to attack your political enemy is a sign of intellectual weakness.

    Your assertions that you would know a 'sane' person let alone a 'majority of sane Americans'...well now that is absurd and given the numerous post that are right out of the 'twilight zone' that you share with us...I'll take Michael Moore statements and what he does and what he represents any day over your POV ;)

    Very nicely put...the question is why did the legislators allow the regulatory changes to occur? Everything points to a mixture of appeasing lower income voters and campaign contibuting special interest groups. Even more disconcerting is that regulators looked the other way when things were done that were clearly outside the lines of legal practice. Yet, of the regulators, auditors, and rating agencies; no one is going to jail? How does that work?

    I have no argument with Michael Moore's questions, but instead of just rolling off on a half comedic theory he should really do his homework and dig a little deeper to understand the real accounting scandal that occurred.

    I reference again that he admits that he has never owned a share of stock and doesn't understand a balance sheet. How do you do a documentary on Capitalism if you haven't participated in it. Oh, but he did finance his movie, so I guess that counts.
