McCain on FANNIE MAE in 2005

(instapundit) As with the Surge, he was right. Difference is, he was listened to on the Surge.

McCain deserves credit for being on the right side of this. Meanwhile, Obama in just four years in the Senate raked more contributions from Fannie and Freddie than any other Senator in the last 19 years — save Dodd, who's pretty demonstrably in the pocket of Big Mortgage. McCain should pummel Obama with this. He's right on Fannie/Freddie where Obama has done nothing but take their money look the other way.

UPDATE: David Frum: "On the surge and the mortgage crisis, John McCain was both prescient and brave, while Barack Obama was opportunistic and wrong."
