You folks that blame home buyers are complete idiots!
Ever since credit began there have been credit checks.
It is the lenders responsibility to make sound loans - NOT THE BUYER!!
People have always tried to buy the most they can with credit.
And they used to be turned down when it was shown they couldn't afford it.
So what REALLY changed?
Update: bmoc - you think that banks and lenders have no responsibility?
You are selling out your fellow citizens with right wing talking points.
Update 2: macmomma - the lenders have the ultimate responsibility - not the buyers. Get it right.
Update 3: right?!? - You are way WRONG!
Bush has a speech in 2003 pushing for everyone to be a homeowner and should be. Look it up.
Update 4: mrteabag - like your brainwashed bretheren you are totally overlooking any responsibilities of lenders. Do banks pay you to think the way you do?
Update 5: ralph w - I agree, people should do research. But whatever type of research a buyer does the lender still has the final say. Sorry - that is where the buck stops!
