Fannie Mae's (FNMA.OB) major settlement with Bank of America yesterday takes care of about 75% of the GSE's buyback issue, says CEO Tim Mayopoulos. "Many of those resources we were devoting to legacy issues ... can now be put to other uses."

    There will be no justice for the taxpayer until former Fannie Mae, CEO's and executives salaries are "clawed back" to include, but not limited to:

     

    1. James A. Johnson, CEO, 1991-'99 began easing loan standards.
    2. Franklin D. Raines, CEO (friend of Obama), 1999-'04
    2a. Tim Howard, CFO under Raines.
    2b. Jamie Gorelick, (friend of Bill) Vice-Chairman of FM. 1997-'03.

     

    And last, but by no means least, honorable mention to the US Presidents that put all these evil people into motion with their poorly thought out policies:

     

    1: Lyndon Johnson for taking FM "private".
    2. G.H.W. Bush (Rino) for extending FM's charter to "affordable housing".
    3. W.J Clinton, for pressuring FM to make more risky "low income "
    loans.
    4. G.W. Bush, (Rino), for his "Ownership Society".

     

    On second thought, perhaps the taxpayer deserves the bill for electing these clowns to positions beyond their ken and conscience..

    Barney Frank , Chris Dodd , and Maxine Waters wouldn't allow Bush to regulate them in 2003 or 2005 . The bills were held up in committee and never allowed to hit the floors of House or Senate

     

    Like Harry Reid does with budgets , as the Senate hasn't voted on one in 3 years because they never hit the floor
