    <div align="center"><div align="left">Full Factchek.org review, with the end summary below:
    </div><font size="2">

    The Real Deal
    </font></div> <font size="2">

    So who is
    to blame? There's plenty of blame to go around, and it doesn't fasten
    only on one party or even mainly on what Washington did or didn't do.
    As The Economist magazine noted recently,
    the problem is one of "layered irresponsibility ... with hard-working
    homeowners and billionaire villains each playing a role." Here's a
    partial list of those alleged to be at fault:
    </font> <ul>[*]
    <font size="2">[*]The Federal Reserve, which slashed interest rates after the dot-com bubble burst, making credit cheap.[*]Home buyers, who took advantage of easy credit to bid up the prices of homes excessively.[*]Congress, which continues to support a mortgage tax deduction that gives consumers a tax incentive to buy more expensive houses.[*]Real estate agents, most of whom work for the sellers rather than the buyers and who earned higher commissions from selling more expensive homes.[*]The Clinton administration, which pushed for less stringent credit and downpayment requirements for working- and middle-class families.[*]Mortgage brokers,
    who offered less-credit-worthy home buyers subprime, adjustable rate
    loans with low initial payments, but exploding interest rates.[*]Former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan, who in 2004, near the peak of the housing bubble, encouraged Americans to take out adjustable rate mortgages.[*]Wall Street firms,
    who paid too little attention to the quality of the risky loans that
    they bundled into Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS), and issued bonds
    using those securities as collateral.[*]The Bush administration, which failed to provide needed government oversight of the increasingly dicey mortgage-backed securities market.[*]An obscure accounting rule
    called mark-to-market, which can have the paradoxical result of making
    assets be worth less on paper than they are in reality during times of
    panic.[*]Collective delusion,
    or a belief on the part of all parties that home prices would keep
    rising forever, no matter how high or how fast they had already gone up.</font>[/list]<font size="3"><font size="3"> <font size="3"> <font size="3"><font size="3"><font size="2">The
    U.S. economy is enormously complicated. Screwing it up takes a great
    deal of cooperation. Claiming that a single piece of legislation was
    responsible for (or could have averted) is just political
    grandstanding. We have no advice to offer on how best to solve the
    financial crisis. But these sorts of partisan caricatures can only make
    the task more diff</font>icult.</font></font></font></font></font>

    Looking forward to this debate. I finally get to see how Palin holds up in a debate setting, and if Biden ends up saying something really stupid.
