More Evidence Dems Root For Failure

Those compassionate Lefties at Democratic Underground are beside themselves with glee:
The largest single home foreclosure auction in Las Vegas history will take place this weekend on Sunday, Aug. 5 at the J.W. Marriott in Summerlin. It starts at 1 p.m.

Drive through any neighborhood in the Las Vegas Valley and you are bound to see evidence of a housing market in a free fall.

"I would say this is a new home someone bought, whether they could not afford it or they decided not to move, whatever the case may be -- obviously unlived in as you can tell. Everything is brand new," said Joe Iuliucci, a Prudential real estate agent.

Eighty homes located near the Northern 215 Beltway and Jones will be auctioned. Last year's auction had only twelve homes.
An upside-down American flag accompanies the brief. Is DU normally a real estate blog? No. Then why the interest?

Because they're anti-greed (other people's greed, that is) and anti-Bush. The presumption is people were too bought-into the materialistic society and spent beyond their means in order to keep up with the Joneses. It's OK to keep up with the Mother Joneses, but not the Joneses. And their hope is that a real estate market in "freefall" (it's not) will be bad for Bush and good for Dems.

And where are the people -- you know, The People -- in all this? Well, let's take a look at some of those conspicuously consumed homes that are on the auction block:
These do not appear to be the homes of greedy people. The Left used to worry about the working man. Shoot, they used to be the working man. Now that they're spoiled brats, college professors and guilty rich folks, they see a home auction and they immediately think people like them ... but not as smart as them ... are going under, and it's Bush's fault and consumerism's fault and America's fault.

But it's just people who are down on their luck, or who bought the hustle on a bad morgage. The Left should be compassionate, concerned, even outraged ... but they're just ugly.
