lou dobbs, you dirty ape

Media Matters has a nice piece about the conservative panic attack to convince everyone that the Blacks are to blame:

MYTH: The 1977 Community Reinvestment Act forced lenders into irresponsible lending

MYTH: Excessive lending to undocumented immigrants is responsible for the financial crisis

MYTH: Congressional Democrats, led by Barney Frank, opposed strengthening oversight over Fannie and Freddie

MYTH: Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac caused the "current financial mess"

MYTH: Sen. Barack Obama's campaign has significantly more ties to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac than does John McCain's

MYTH: Democrats sought to divert funding in the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act to ACORN

MYTH: Former President Clinton has blamed Democrats for the financial crisis
