it is not a curse to be the grand child of a guy or born with silver spoon. But it is disgusting to allow those people to occupy white house

Your crazy dude and a troll. I wasn't arguing if there is a "god" I'm arguing that it does not matter who is in office. Someone is gonna dump crap on them there is always gonna be some stigma and negative connotations. I mean you talk shit on United States but if it wasn't for United States you would probably have Hitlers Great Grand Child as your Führer

Even Clinton agrees Fanny mae and freddy mac is the reason for this economic mess!
Even ex-President Clinton admitted that the Democrats were guilty of destroying Fannie and Freddie... and responsible for the current crisis that threatens to bring the entire U.S. economy to the brink of recession: I think that the responsibility that the Democrats have may rest more in resisting any efforts by the Republicans and the Congress or by me when I was President to put some standards and tighten up a little on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
Who were the top recipients of Fannie Mae's money? The top three were:
Chris Dodd (D-CT),
Barack Obama (D-IL)
and John Kerry (D-MA).
And where are these Fannie Mae executives now?
Franklin Raines ($90 million in compensation): Economic Adviser to Barack Obama
Jamie Gorelick ($26 million): Major Democratic Fundraiser
James Johnson ($21 million): Adviser to Barack Obama
"From 1991 To 1998, Mr. Johnson Served As CEO Of The Federal National Mortgage Association, Also Known As Fannie Mae…" *(Josh Gerstein, "Top Talent Scout For Obama Tied To Subprime Lender," /The New York Sun/, 6/9/08)
In 1998, Fannie Mae’s Earnings Were Manipulated, Which Resulted In "Maximum Payouts" To Executives Including Johnson, Who Earned $1.9 Million When He Otherwise Would Not Have Earned A Bonus.(Jonathan Weisman and David S. Hilzenrath, "Obama’s Choice Of Insider Draws Fire," /The Washington Post/, 6/11/08)
Johnson Received Special Loans From Countrywide Financial CEO Angelo Mozilo.*(Glenn R. Simpson and James R. Hagerty, "Countrywide Friends Got Good Loans," /The Wall Street Journal/, 6/7/08)
"Property Records Show Mr. Johnson Has Received More Than $7
Million In Loans From Countrywide Since 1998, The First Coming In
The Waning Days Of His Fannie Mae Tenure."*(Glenn R. Simpson and
James R. Hagerty, "Countrywide Friends Got Good Loans," /The Wall
Street Journal/, 6/7/08)
Johnson Also Received Fees And Compensation From Fannie Mae Worth $3.3 Million Between 2001 And 2006.*(Jonathan Weisman and David S. Hilzenrath, "Obama’s Choice Of Insider Draws Fire," /The Washington Post/, 6/11/08)
Just to let you know, after all these years of "investigation" there are 3rd party studies indicating CitiBank (aka Citicorp, citigroup...100 or so more) is center stage.

I said that history would treat him better back at the beginning of this thread, and it's happening. Of course, it helps that his successor in the White House is a total amateur, and an empty suit who is totally in over his head in that job.

Wishful thinking. Still waiting for a list of his accomplishments as President.

At least now he's just a lame duck.

history has a way of leveling out the highs and lows reflecting a true balanced picture of what occurred.

Obozo has a day of reckoning or truth coming also.

If America survives as a nation history will report him to be the worst most unqualified person to ever be president.

He has saddled our grand children with crippling debt, too much government and too many taxes for us to survive as a free nation.

if you wanted to live in a socialist state you should have moved to Russia cuba leave America alone

I agree that Obama is the most unqualified person to be elected President in my lifetime. It's amazing that he was reelected despite a lack of any significant achievements in his first term.

Obama was reelected because he hashed out a strategy to get the minorities and women voters to vote for him.

His achievement was that he impressed upon them that if he didn't win, then all the government support they enjoy might vanish under Romney.

Hasn't the Obama presidency already vindicated Bush?

Not necessarily true.

It could be that the voters who earn their living off of other people's taxes and get freebies from the government outnumber the taxpayers.

History will judge Obama as the worst president in American history and all those who voted for him will be judged as useful idiots.
