“Common Joe” posed a questions earlier that allowed me to cover some important topics:
“While its good to see you responding, but your comments here really puzzle me.
IMHO, there would never ever be any political compromise here.. if you try to deal with 1 or 2 guys yes, but whole party ? … there could be better chance of making pig flying than make agreement on both parties.
Now tell me Tim.. why Obama doesnt want to get credit by releasing FnF back to be privatized and make housing in better position soon ?
Let them build capital and get Gov Chartered out of them… he can be praised fixing the housing , apart of killing bin laden, closing Guantanamo, etc…. This is the biggest issue and dont let Republican gets their dirty hand into it as well. He doesnt have much time before he leaves his office.
Why let court to handle by force instead of settlement to make everyone happy and economy better shape, less taxpayer risk.
Dont tell me he doesnt see this in his plan – even common Joe like me can think thru of it.
Greed and corruption have to end sometime, and it needs to end gracefully if it can, im seeing there is a win-win solution to this without having to engage on court… but seriously the delay here what i just dont understand.
I hope you can answer this if you do have connection with inside admin.
Many of the answers you are looking for have been well covered in prior posts. President Obama and the Democrats are currently perfectly happy having the GSEs nationalized as they currently are. In the near term, it will take a major legal victory to dislodge this mindset. The perils of this strategy are many but the fact that by waiting they will ultimately have to negotiate housing finance with the House Republicans and they will lose much of what they have now in housing finance is a biggie. Quite the war was waged between Treasury and the GSE haters in the administration and the pro affordable housing forces. We ran a very successful campaign on this front which was evidenced by Treasury and others attacking the minority and civil rights groups that were pushing for the GSEs release. Some of this momentum was channeled towards the Hillary campaign, but much more progress likely could have been made if we were able to stay in the activist position we were in prior to last October.
Trump was approached by Corker who attempted to push his Kill the GSEs at all costs strategy and Trump essentially told him to get lost.
Needless to say, we are in desperate need of a victory in the Perry Appeal and although it is not critically needed an order forcing the Obama administration to hand over the docs they are withholding would be a great help.
Not only do I believe we are on the verge of achieving these victories, but our opponents also believe this is so.
A loss in the Perry appeal would be a major setback on the legal front, but the war will still proceed in Sweeney’s court. I rarely mention the other cases because I have never had much hope there.
Aside from legal front we have as you said nearly checkmated them on the political and policy front.
So yes I am more confident than ever for many reasons. Whether this ends soon or drags on for years, we will be involved in various capacities. We have changed the course of the debate on more than one occasion and look forward to doing so some more.

I commented a few days ago that I am going to be doing a post in honor of : Daniel Gregg Gannon who passed away on July 9th, 2016. Many of you know him as ” Dan Xtropin” Anyone who has something to say or share please email me so I can include it in the post. Dan was a loyal soldier of the Truth and his passing is a very sad turn of events. Some people have already sent over some great suggestions but I wanted to get this in a post as well.
In regards to the comments section please try and limit the political attacks/posts I understand it is election time but there are millions of forums where you can vent this type of stuff. Try to limit comments to the truth about Fannie and Freddie and what we can do to save everything they represent.
Keep The Faith!
