Mitt Romney Encourages Foreclosures
“I’m not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there. If it needs repair, I’ll fix it. I’m not concerned about the very rich. They’re doing just fine. I’m concerned about the very heart of America — the 90-95 percent of Americans who right now are struggling.”
This is the same man who bragged last month that he liked to fire people at a time when nearly 13 million people are out of work and who accepted the endorsement this week of Donald Trump, who has made “You’re Fired!” his television catchphrase.
Also the same man that drove twelve hours with his dog in a crate on top of his car only to reply to the public that his dog, Seamus, “likes fresh air.”
Here is one I missed. In October, during an interview with the editorial board of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Mitt-Twit said:
“There are things you can do to encourage housing. One is don’t try and stop the foreclosure process. Let it run it’s course and hit the bottom. Allow investors to buy the homes, put renters in them, fix the homes up and let it turn around and come back up.”
It’s all about making a profit, isn’t it Mitt. Forget about the children, the elderly, the handicapped, the veterans, and just all your average Joe’s and Jane’s living in those homes.
Forget that the banking industry received a bailout after packaging an exorbitant amount of bad loans – which never should have been signed off by an underwriter – all hidden among the good loans when selling them off in bulk.
Forget that the subprime sharks and underwriters turned over-appraised homes faster than a Waffle House line cook flips pancakes.
Forget about the fraudulent documents sent through by the loan officers.
Forget that the UW’s were so overburdened that they didn’t even look at these loans but merely scribbled a signature on the form as the assembly line of 1003’s danced across their desk.
Forget that many of the loan officers probably were not smart enough to explain what the TIL is about, “Mr. and Mrs. Smith, if you want this home… just sign here.”
Forget that these innocent home buyers who trusted their banks, their mortgage brokers, their LO’s did not receive a bailout – at least some assistance to try to keep their homes (cough, cough, B…of…A, cough).
Forget that these same home buyers, especially the first time home buyers, proudly moved into their new home to happily find credit card offers filling their mailbox every day by the same greedy banks offering “instant credit” to buy, buy, buy and fill their new home with new furniture, new appliances, new everything!
And forget that many of these foreclosure are ILLEGAL!
No… just forget all about that. All that matters is getting those people out so investors can slither in and reap the benefits.
The banks made some very bad decisions and were helped. Many home buyers made some very bad decisions and were kicked to the curb – literally.
Just as Barking in the Dark said about Karl Rove, you are:
The bile in the liver of a corpse dead of cirrhosis
The presence of the ghoul
The ugliest, the grossest
The hemorrhoid of assholes
The ooze from out the rash
The pus squeezed from the pimple
The maggots in the trash
Phew… Okay. I feel better now.
Mitt is a twit – and I’m being nice.
