Obama Weekly Address: Hey, My First Round Of Mortgage Modification Bills Worked So Well I’d Like Another…

…And those pesky Republicans are to blame for failing to bail out my failed policies

(WRAL) Citing historically low mortgages, President Barack Obama is pressing Republicans to back housing policies the White House says would help struggling homeowners refinance their debts and prevent foreclosures. (full transcript here)

Obama is blaming congressional Republicans for not passing legislation he proposed in February that would lower lending rates for millions of borrowers who have not been able to get out from under burdensome mortgages. Republicans have objected, citing among other things the estimated $5 billion to $10 billion cost of the proposal.

They already tried this with HARP and other measures, some included in the Stimulus. Apparently those measures failed since now Obama wants more. Either that or he’s just using this issue, and the official resources of the White House, for campaign fodder

“Now, there are some who think that the only option for homeowners is to just stand by and hope that the market has hit bottom. I don’t agree with that.”

So, he took a dig at Congressional Republicans and Mitt Romney while using the resources of the White House. He campaigns enough without turning the resources owned by The People into Obama 2012 material, too

Congress has recessed and is not scheduled to return until after the November elections.

“Instead of worrying about you, they’d already gone home to worry about their campaigns,” the president said.

Now that was some serious chutzpah from an elected official who has spent most of his time since inaugurated campaigning, and has recently blown off meeting with world leaders, including Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu, in order to go on The View.

Of course, this same legislation would cost the taxpayers a boatload of money, since it will primarily be run through Freddy and Fannie, putting taxpayers on the hook for loan defaults. And the Democrat led Senate is taking their sweet time dealing with the legislation themselves. Weird that Obama failed to mention that.

    At least some reality must have set in Teach as you are no longer describing Obama as “desperate”. Apparently the American people are going to reelect him.

    What’s his silly face is back!!!

    Hey Teach, I wonder if we actually don’t have more people like WHSF here who will do ANYTHING to maintain his government slave status? I wonder how many actively work to assure that they get tons of free money without having to pay for it.

    I imagine, that if Repubs, true Liberals, and Conservatives do not come out and vote, then the 40% of America’s leeches who will vote for their free money and more Socialist creep, will win this and coming elections.

    Because that is what WHSF and many of this 47% are…… LEECHES.
