Obama and the Congressional Democrats have resisted previous efforts to reform Fannie and Freddie! It’s a VERY intriguing video!
(btw – do you know that President Bush, the “Evil W,” has been working since Day One of his Presidency to make changes and rein in Fannie & Freddie? Including some 18 attempted measures this year alone? – but the Dems stall him out every time!)
Many thanks to my Italian friend for this link –
And yesterday, John McCain finally hit Obama HARD, where it hurts:
John McCain today in Cedar Rapids, IA, said Barack Obama has done nothing to help the nation avert fiscal crisis:
“Senator Obama talks a tough game on the financial markets but the facts tell a different story. He took more money from Fannie and Freddie than any Senator but the Democratic chairman of the committee that regulates them. He put Fannie Mae’s CEO who helped create this disaster in charge of finding his Vice President. Fannie’s former General Counsel is a senior advisor to his campaign. Whose side do you think he is on? When I pushed legislation to reform Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Senator Obama was silent. He didn’t lift a hand to avert this crisis.”
His admitted former drug use, friends in the Chicago racket, his associations with William Ayers, 1/2 of his family foreign nationals and some actually citizens of hostile nations…
If Barack Obama were applying for a position as a grunt staffer on Capital Hill, he couldn’t be hired because he couldn’t pass security clearance.
But we could still see him elected to the White House by a nation of gullible sheep who are enamored of the concept of “change.”
Pray for America.
No, I’m not going to publish the photo – although he looks a heck of a lot more groomed and self-respecting on the cover of People magazine than he did in photos announcing the birth of his son.
Clay Aiken, squeaky-clean Idol and self-professed Christian, has outed himself. He says he’s going to be an honest dad.
Bilge and nonsense.
Look, Clay. Being gay isn’t morally heroic. Self-denial is.
I feel sort of sorry for you, and always have done. You’re cute as a bug, you had a rotten rap of male role models, and you’re manifestly a mama’s boy – it’s a dangerous combination.
But, honey, you need to face facts. Being gay isn’t set in concrete. The ancient Corinthians were gay and then some – and they converted to Christianity and gave up the pagan-associated behaviors (look at Paul’s letters to the Corinthians – “Such WERE some of you – but you have been bought!”)
Give it up. Make friends with some strong and decent straight guys who can teach you how to grow a pair.
Learn what real honesty is.
Adrienne loves me! Loves my blog! same difference –
