RE foreclosure debacle: The poit I don't hear made is that when this crisis was breaking a tremendous amount of blame was dumped on homeowners for irresponsibly taking loans they couldn't afford on real estate that was overvalued. The point for me is that for decades, it was known that banks wouldn't grant mortgages unless they were very sure you could afford it. This latest "robo-signing of foreclosures" shows that a substantial part of the original problem WAS the banks - it is now credible that they were oggling profits and not doing the due diligence a responsible lender should.
