Gives you that nice, warm, cuddling feeling. Doesn’t it?

@Peter: because the Republicans caused the housing crisis? Better check your facts. Here is one democrat that will actually admit the truth. There are some other great articles that say the same thing if you just look… Check it out rather than just believing what comes out of their mouths today.
