The White House's announcing that a mortgage fraud deal between state attorney generals and mortgage bankers is just around the corner isn't premature. Rather, it seems to be a deliberate pressure tactic to get many state AGs to sign off on a deal they think is still too lenient ... to much too lenient.
And, it is.
None of the strongest AG opponents was at the White House's Hooverite press conference.
And, yes, "a solution is just around the corner" is in part Hooverite. In addition to being heavy-handed.
And, it's "looking forward" instead of backward, too.
