Jesus Told Me to Take Out That Mortgage I Can't Afford

From the Cunning Realist:
"And so we need more counseling and more education to make sure our fellow citizens know what it means to buy a home and can get comfortable with the idea of buying a home. And so we've doubled the amount of money available for community-based programs, faith-based programs -- (applause) -- to be able to brief their parishioners and/or their fellow citizens about the opportunities and the hope and what it takes to be able to purchase a home."

-George Bush 

The setting for that 2003 speech? Just outside of Fresno, California. If you don't know what happened there, 
here's one post-mortem.

Isn't this all about George Bush's "ownership society"????
