Comments on: Fannie Mae’s unneccessary evictions http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/06/16/fannie-maes-unneccessary-evictions/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: HBC http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/06/16/fannie-maes-unneccessary-evictions/comment-page-1/#comment-15958 Thu, 17 Jun 2010 04:18:03 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=4294#comment-15958 Fannie Mae is like the Idi Amin of housing finance, installed to make all its commercial competitors look pristine by comparison in exchange for cash duly shoveled to them out the back door.

Other than woe betiding its customers of course Fannie’s doing a fabulous job. A Fabulous Fab job, even. The banks will sorely miss ‘er when she’s gone.

If not, oh well, sucks to be you.

Absinthe is right, but dear Lord, can’t any one in a bank use common sense to cut through bureaucracy?

If someone at Newberry’s organization is stupid enough to think this is a good idea, I hope their IT planning isn’t involved in their business model.
