Lickety-Split Links (011710, Morning)

At the New York Times: Jared Laughner’s “anger would well up at the sight of President George W. Bush.”

Gateway Pundit: “And, yet the horrible leftists in the media plotted to blame this slaughter on the tea party and Sarah Palin? What awful people.”

That would include lots and lots of people at the New York Times.

Keith Olbermann hearts Eric Fuller, the far-lefty arrested at an ABC “This Week” taping in Tucson:

Clarification: As noted in a few weekend posts (here, here, and here), Eric Fuller’s Democracy Now appearance endorsed by Olbermann included this name-naming rant:

It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target. Their wish for Second Amendment activism has been fulfilled—senseless hatred leading to murder, lunatic fringe anarchism, subscribed to by John Boehner, mainstream rebels with vengeance for all, even nine-year-old girls.

From Doug Ross: “White House: we were shocked that Tucson memorial crowd hooted and hollered throughout because our APPLAUSE signs were actually quite discrete.”

From the “Give Me a Break” Dept. — Leftists are claiming this was just closed captioning for the hearing impaired.

Sure. People ALWAYS close caption applause lines at live events.

Update: Others commenting — Gateway Pundit, Ed Driscoll.

Busted: Unsealed Docs Show The Fed Was Fully Warned Of A Housing Crisis.”

They were warned, but not fully warned, because no one besides a few people inside Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and presumably a number of higher-ups in the Democratic Party (but I repeat myself) knew about this:

… from the time Fannie and Freddie began buying risky loans as early as 1993, they routinely misrepresented the mortgages they were acquiring, reporting them as prime when they had characteristics that made them clearly subprime or Alt-A.

Thus, by 2005, when Business Insider writes that the Fed was “fully warned” (this would appear to mean that the White House wasn’t, since the docs were just recently unsealed), the aforementioned parties were already about 12 years into their campaign to systematically deceive the ratings agencies and capital markets about hundreds of billions, if not trillions, of dollars in mortgage-backed securities.
