Nary a Peep About Housing from Either Candidate

Trend #7 – Remember history
There are some interesting stories in the news that are worth examining:
“ From “The costs of the housing crisis remain steep in Greater Cincinnati and across the nation, yet the presidential candidates barely touch on the topic. ‘I find it absolutely remarkable,’ said Bill Faith, executive director of the Coalition on Homelessness and Housing in Ohio. ‘If you look at what triggered this whole financial market seize-up, it was housing.’”

Not much mention of this in the all important swing state of Ohio.... I wonder why????  Could it be that both parties are equally responsible for cheer leading the run-up in housing values and making their genius constituents (a.k.a. the middle class) feel all smug and good about themselves between 1995 and 2006???  Naaaahhhh.  I probably just have the chin strap on my tin foil helmet a little too tight.  When a little thing called reality comes a' knockin' on the door of hubris and false pride, no one wants to get up off the sofa, answer and look the truth in the face.
