"President Obama has decided not to sign a bill that would make it difficult for homeowners to fight foreclosure. Man, why is Obama all of a sudden so sensitive about people being kicked out of their House? Oh yeah, sorry."

What?

I thought he was gonna catch up everybody's house payments. I thought foreclosures were a thing of the past. This legislation should be moot.

RE: I thought foreclosures were a thing of the past

They are, For the present

Did you get that one?...a thing of the past for the present?

Amid a snowballing foreclosure fraud crisis, President Obama today blocked legislation that critics say could have made it more difficult for homeowners to challenge foreclosure proceedings against them.

The bill, titled The Interstate Recognition of Notarizations Act of 2009, passed the Senate with unanimous consent and with no scrutiny by the DC media. In a maneuver known as a "pocket veto," President Obama indirectly vetoed the legislation by declining to sign the bill passed by Congress while legislators are on recess.

The swift passage and the President's subsequent veto of this bill come on the heels of an announcement that Wall Street banks are voluntarily suspending foreclosure proceedings in 23 states.

By most reports, it would appear that the voluntary suspension of foreclosures is underway to review simple, careless procedural errors. Errors which the conscientious banks are hastening to correct. Even Gretchen Morgenson in the New York Times characterizes the problem as ?flawed paperwork.?
