Bush Won't Help Lenders, Countrywide Demonstrates Why
Here's a contextual quirk that appeared in Joe Madison's AP news feed. In the video, Bush refuses to support a bill that bails mortgage lenders out of crisis mode. Meanwhile, a contextual ad for Countrywide -- a lender in dire straits -- appears below his torso.
"No closing cost refi. No points. No credit report," the ad promises. Jesus, Countrywide. Is it any wonder Bush wouldn't stick his neck out for you?
In related news, Countrywide recently got ripped in the press when its CEO trashed a hard-up borrower via email. (It was an accident. The borrower was appealing for financial relief, and apparently the flustered Mozilo pushed "reply" instead of "forward.")
What beautiful irony.
