In the conservative/Republican narrative of the financial crisis much of the blame goes to the GSEs or government sponsored enterprises, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Some place more blame on the Department of Housing and Urban Development's Fair Housing Goals. It's a fairly narrow view of the crisis. (See the report of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission where I worked and its dissent by Peter Wallison) That's not the same thing as getting a check from MoveOn.org or MSNBC but it could be something to explain to Republican primary voters.
