Wrong group blamed for mortgage crisis
News that the U.S. Department of Justice is going after Standard & Poor's over pre-crisis mortgages is startling; it shows how far the Obama administration will go to take away focus on those really responsible for the home mortgage crash. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is seeking to prosecute S&P when he ought to be going after the real culprits: Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Chuck Schumer and others involved in encouraging (forcing under pressure) Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae executives to provide mortgages to people who weren't eligible for them.
