And that's why you're still ignorant and mindlessly repeat the Democrat party line mantra that's been proven a lie over and over.
So, how about you actually learn what a "Special Purpose Vehicle" is to start with.
But, something you can explain to us right now is, how did our economy collapse while it had been under the complete oversight of the Democrats for 2 full years?
How could that possibly have happened? I'd be interested in reading your explanation.

The sun, which we believed simply turned itself off at night, has been secretly rising in such places as North Korea and Iran while republicans weren't looking? Well, I for one think this redistribution of American sunshine has got to stop. That's our sunshine and we worked hard for it and the very idea that some people should get all they want for free is just another reason why Obama is the worst president ever.

The U.S. Census Bureau wrote that in 2010, the female-to-male earnings ratio of full-time, year-round workers was 0.77."
But the Obama ad takes a solid statistic and describes it incorrectly. The campaign is wrong to say that the 77-cent figure describes the pay differences between men and women "doing the same work."
The 77-cent figure compares all male and female workers, regardless of their occupation.

In a reversal of traditional gender roles, young women now surpass young men in the importance they place on having a high-paying career or profession, according to survey findings from the Pew Research Center.

Say you're sorry.
That would be a great argument if it wasn't for your total fallacy that Obama actually said it...very Romneyesque.

As stimulus-funded ($249 million-plus) A123 Systems sees its stock price drop back near its all-time low and waits for a Chinese rescue, two Republican senators want answers about whether taxpayer dollars are again funding jobs and technology that will be transferred overseas.
Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley, the ranking minority member on the Judiciary Committee, and South Dakota Sen. John Thune queried A123 CEO David Vieau about the logistics of a proposed sale to China-based Wanxiang Group Corp. In August, just as the company reported another $82.9 million in second-quarter losses, a deal was announced in which Wanxiang would deliver $75 million in initial loans and then would buy $200 million of senior secured convertible notes, followed by a possible $175 million “through the exercise of warrants it would receive in connection with the bridge loan and convertible notes.” If fully consummated, the end result could mean A123 ends up 80 percent Chinese.
What kind of name is A123? Were they hoping for a better listing in the phone book? lol
