Your view is extremely limited. No surprise there.
Oh sure. Limited.

So what about that deal in Florida? And Colorado, Nevada, North Carolina and Virginia?

No point in you being limited. You're the guy who thinks that 10 cases of voter impersonation since 2000 are a big deal, so tell us what kind of big deal RNC hired vote fraud might end up being? Or would the outcome hinge on who's running the DOJ come January? Kind of like what happened in 2004.

You tell us what Barney said but you don't tell us how he put words into action.
Because you can't. But I can put Bush's actions to his words.
Last June, I issued a challenge to everyone involved in the housing industry to help increase the number of minority families to be home owners. And what I'm talking about, I'm talking about your bankers and your brokers and developers, as well as members of faith-based community and community programs. And the response to the home owners challenge has been very strong and very gratifying. Twenty-two public and private partners have signed up to help meet our national goal. Partners in the mortgage finance industry are encouraging homeownership by purchasing more loans made by banks to African Americans, Hispanics and other minorities.
Representatives of the real estate and homebuilding industries, through their nationwide networks or affiliates, are committed to broadening homeownership. They made the commitment to help meet the national goal we set.
Freddie Mae -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- I see the heads who are here; I want to thank you all for coming --(laughter)-- have committed to provide more money for lenders. They've committed to help meet the shortage of capital available for minority home buyers.

You can live in the denial that is necessary from all who voted for Bush, but you can't wipe his words from the internet.
In case you weren't paying attention, here's what really happened in Congress with the obviously failed CRA and how the Democrat program collapsed our economy:
Here's the link to read the Democrats negotiating for no effective oversight of the Democrats' idiotic subprime housing mortgage underwriting program that collapsed our economy. In the article you also see the Director of OFHEO citing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for cooking the books to hide the massive CRA failures that were a known threat to our economy as early as 2003.
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1222905743912 ...
Now, let's look at a time line. After the Republicans gave to the Democrats what they wanted, no effective oversight of the Democrat program that collapsed our economy, the Democrats supported the Iraq operation. That's when they were for the Iraq front before they were against it.
Barney Frank doing... how did you put it?
"...lessen the housing GSEs' commitment to low-income homebuyers."
Wow. What bullshit. Let's get a real Barney Frank quote on the subject:
Barney Frank - " I do think I do not want the same kind of focus on safety and soundness that we have in OCC [Office of the Comptroller of the Currency] and OTS [Office of Thrift Supervision]. I want to roll the dice a little bit more in this situation towards subsidized housing."
That kind of blows a hole through the keel of your bullshit, doesn't it?

<quoted text>Wasn't it Graham who was recently wondering if there were enough cranky old white men to keep the republican party going? Well, once again, those crappy old white men try to use brave, young, dead men to advance their agenda. It would be nice if anyone who hasn't seen "Capitalism: A Love Story" weren't allowed to post anything economy related.
Lindsey Graham, despite his "moderate" assignation by complicit d-bags in the media, is a party line pro-Life, pro-wealth, pro-dereg, pro-tax cut, pro-no bid contracts for big donors...and when someone like Sen. Graham admits publicly that they are running out of "cranky old white guys"...maybe conservatives across the nation should stop and ask themselves if maybe they should try and add policy to their platform instead of sticking by the old platitudes and rhetoric aimed at making white guys cranky.

Tommy Thompson believes he's being hurt by Mitt...as do many other down ticket Rs who have never warmed to Mormon-guy. Mitt is a clusterfuck unto himself. He rarely misses an opportunity to expose himself as a political opportunist, elite douchbag, or callous businessman who is worried about him and his not We the People.

Sorry, Tommy Two-face...but Mitt and your state-mate Paul Ryan...aren't your problem. You are. Your message is. Your party is. Your party's message is the problem.

"It's about the economy (stoopid)"...Tommy et al want Americans to believe. Their answer to fix the economy? "Vote for us. Blame them."

Well, perhaps you can remind us what Biden's response was when Ryan pointed out the fact that the people the Democrats want to tax to pay for those same social programs that are bankrupting Europe don't have enough money even if Obama taxed them at 100 percent.
So, perhaps you can answer that for us.
Who are the Democrats going to get the money from to pay for the government they created?
... you actually have to identify the people Obama will tax to pay for the Democrats' programs to answer this post.
Biden couldn't answer that one.
According to Paul Ryan, we should make no effort to raise revenues or cut spending unless that one action will eliminate the national debt.

Look, the idiot Ryan basically said it is a waste to consider raising the rate on the wealthy because the billions of dollars it would bring in to lower the deficit was not worth it.

So why is killing Big Bird to save 400 million worth it?

Why do care? You only read that rag the NYPost, and gunner reads taygar, the Hezbollah propaganda site.
Throw in a little Worldnut Daily, Drudge and Fox, and you're all set.
I regularly read The New York Times, the left leaner's Bible. I also read Newsday, which leans toward the left. It is comical but sad how the news is slanted in favor of anyone they agree with.

Newsday isn't as blatant as the Times, having never divulged CIA secrets on its front page. But any chance they have to evade or bury or display to give Obama the advantage, they do. Not just Obama...any candidate who sacrifices common sense to be politically correct is their candidate. i still recall how a Democrat they worshipped was suddenly deemed awful by the editors because he (gasp) opposed hiring halls for illegal aliens and invoiced the federal government for illegal aliens the taxpayers were supporting in the county jail.

meanwhile, like you--the editorial staff is insulated from the lefty PC social issues they advocate. yes, bus gang bangers and other thugs from a failing school to another town that borders it but has a thriving school. yes, set up taxpayer funded hiring halls to help people who shouldn't be in the country at all, get jobs. yes, give them drivers licenses to "bring them out of the shadows." all while none of the limousine libs who promote the above are affected by it....cause just like you...it ain't in their neighborhoods. the problems are only seen on TV or read about.

"The facts:

On Wednesday, the State Department's former point man on security in Libya told the House Oversight Committee that he asked for additional security help for the Benghazi facility months before the attack, but was denied.

Various communications dating back a year asked for three to five diplomatic security agents, according to testimony at Wednesday's hearing. But Eric Nordstrom, the one-time regional security officer, said he verbally asked for 12 agents."

What to Make of Declining Democratic Registration?
Voter registration in the Buckeye State is down by 490,000 people from four years ago. Of that reduction, 44 percent is in Cleveland and surrounding Cuyahoga County, where Democrats outnumber Republicans more than two to one.…
Ohio is not alone. An August study by the left-leaning think tank Third Way showed that the Democratic voter registration decline in eight key swing states outnumbered the Republican decline by a 10-to-one ratio. In Florida, Democratic registration is down 4.9 percent, in Iowa down 9.5.
