Home values have dropped steadily for the past 8 months.

NBC reported this morning that home ownership is at it's lowest point in a generation.

How's that hope and change thing working out?

And can we all just agree that it's all Bush's fault?

We've also had some bad weather, which you may want to blame O for.

But adults with some sense realize the president cannot control the weather, and likewise, cannot control pricing in the domestic real estate markets.

What does the weather have to do with home ownership being at the lowest levels in a generation?

I can't wait for the day when you lefties start telling us about an increase in new home building yet your forget it is entirely caused by this recent bad weather you talk about.

Both are impossible to control from the Oval Office. I thought that point was obvious?

Which takes us right back to the thread title? If, as you say, it can't be controlled by the white house, how is it we keep hearing that it's all Bush's fault?

Personally, I think that the overall economic policies of this administration probably do have something to do with the drop in home ownership. n The decision to create a trillion dollar slush fund rather than take steps to encourage the private sector job growth have much to do with an unemployment rate that has hovered near double digits since he took office...and high unemployment means a lot of people have lost their homes, or aren't in a position to buy one.

Exactly. When Obama took over unemployment was going through the roof. The US was losing 800,000 jobs a month!!!!

..and lower wages, less security in the workplace, etc

The major reason is that the banks who caused the housing crash, after being bailed out by the people of America, did absolutely nothing to help the situation like they promised to. They actually did a u-turn and instead of helping people stay in their house, they made it worse by fraudulently foreclosing on folks with forged papers!

Very good, Q. Now, see if you can find a graph that looks at unemployment....which is what I was talking about.
