Not so dumb to not know the facts:
In 1999 Bill Clinton coerced Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to institute nationwide a subprime housing mortgage underwriting program.
This Democrat program created a mountain of what was called "toxic assets."
These individual bad mortgages were hidden inside traunches and sold by mother companies to "Special Purpose Vehicles" created by the mother companies in foreign countries, then the mother companies bought the bulk traunches back from their "Special Puropose Vehicles", replacing the individual bad loans on their books with a single traunch, making it impossible to investigate.
These traunches were given fraudulent AAA ratings and sold to municipalities throughout Europe to fund their pension plans and bond projects.
In 2003 the looming disaster was identified by the Director or OFHEO in a Congressional hearing, while the Democrats were negotiating for no effective oversight of their lunatic subprime housing loan program, in exchange the Democrats supported the invasion of Iraq.
In january, 2007, the Democrats took control of all oversight of the financial institutions that collapsed our economy after 2 years of Democrat oversight.
The Democrats' idiotic subprime loan program not only collapsed our economy, the Democrats collapsed municipal economies throughout Europe, putting enough strain on the national governments of Europe to cause the social collapse we're witnessing today because those governments are unable to fund their social programs and pay for the recovery of the economic crisis the Democrats' ludicrous subprime loan program caused them.
Kindly explain to us why would the financial institutions that caused the collapse gave so much bribe money to Obama, in the whole of Congress it was only Christopher Dodd that they gave more to.
To answer this, you have to explain why Obama was so important to the financial institutions that caused the collapse. After all, you know they weren't just giving that money to Obama for nothing.


Oh for Christ's sake quit your lying. Obama did not do any of it.

According to yu. none of it had to do with:
unfunded ta cuts
unfunded expansion of government
unfunded Afghanistan war
unfunded Iraq War
Unfunded expansion to Medicare
Unfunded record Earmarks.

All voted for by Paul Ryan & the Republicans & signed by Bush.

When will ever admit that YOUR party did this.

Instead you keep repeating the failed CRA excuse.

What Happens If Romney Wins?

....It is likely that the bad habits that marred Republican rule in the 2000s will resume, and the incentives to retain power will tend to trump any constitutional and fiscal objections to new legislation and increased spending.

....It is possible that Republican control of the White House and the House of Representatives might not produce the fiscally irresponsible policies that marked the early Bush years, but experience suggests that fiscal conservative rhetoric expires when a new Republican administration begins.

....Temperamental and dissident conservatives will have the opportunity to tap into rank-and-file distrust and dissatisfaction with Romney, who will almost certainly try to govern in a more “centrist” fashion than most conservatives want.

Exactly. I overheard this conversation yesterday, between a man and a woman over age 65:
Man: That Hussein Obama, he's, he's, never had a job in his life"
Woman: Oh, I know, it's because of his background
Man: Hussein Obama is giving out free foodstamps and welfare and disability, advertising it on tv so they'll vote for him
Woman: I just hate it when they try to lump us on Medicare in with them
Man: Yeah, that Hussein wants to lump us in with the lazy blacks who have been on welfare their whole lives
Woman: Oh I know, it's his background
Man: You know more than Hussein Obama does, Romney doesn't need the money, he's sacrificing his life to help this country
Everything you heard is correct. The only thing they left out is how Obama took 700 billion from Medicare to provide free health care to 30 million illegal aliens. Oh, and the seniors will be reduced to Medicaid rates as Medicare will be eliminated. Oh and they'll be denied care and aborted by death panels.

'Why Mitt’s winning over women

An interesting story from last winter: An e-mail friend who lives in an affluent suburb far from Washington, a staunch Republican, was watching one of the Republican debates with his wife, a staunch Democrat.

He was surprised by her response to Mitt Romney.“He’s a grown-up. He’s someone who is reliable,” he told me she said.“People will feel safe if he is in charge.”

I’ve been thinking about that e-mail.

There’s obviously been a surge toward Romney. He was trailing in just about every national poll conducted before Oct. 3. He has been leading in most conducted since.

His national lead was matched as swing state polls came in. In the realclearpolitics.com average of recent polls, he’s ahead or even in states with 248 electoral votes. He’s ahead, even or within 2 points in states with 301 electoral votes, 31 more than the 270-vote majority.

Fascinatingly, it appears that he’s made greater gains among women than men. The USA Today/Gallup poll has him running even with Barack Obama among women, 48 to 48 percent. Pew has women at 47 to 47.

That’s a huge difference from 2008, when the exit poll showed Barack Obama leading John McCain among women by 56 to 43 percent. Men favored Obama by only 1 point.

All the evidence suggests that the first debate made the difference.“In every poll we’ve seen a major surge in favorability for Romney,”

Democratic pollster Celinda Lake told USA Today’s Susan Page.

“Women went into the debate actively disliking Romney,” she went on,“and they came out thinking he might understand their lives and might be able to get something done for them.”

That sounds a lot like what my e-mail friend’s wife said last winter.'

This coming from a person who voted for Bush who doubled the debt & left office with the worst recession in 80 years.
That recession etched these trillions in debt in stone. That recession lost over a trillion in revenues alone. It added hundreds of billions to unemployment, social services costs, meanwhile we still had two unfunded quagmire wars & unfunded medicare & government expansions carried over from the previous administration.
If you really don't like debt, then you need to ask yourself what happened that took us from a balanced budget in 2001 to this mess we have today.
It didn't happen under Obama.
Democrats are 100% responsible for the collapse of the financial sector. The Kenyan's communist coup made the economy worse.

HOW ABOUT $300 MILLION IN PUBLIC FUNDING FOR CLEAN ENERGY FIRM WORKERS TO SIT AND PLAY CARDS? That’s what is happening at LG Chem, another of those electric car battery makers that got major federal funding, according to a local Michigan television news operation. Only problem is there’s almost no demand for what LG Chem makes.

Casey's opponent, Tom Smith, plays this ultra conservative right winger tea party guy. He's been a Republican for about a year.
One year.
Prior to that, he's been a Democrat.
Sounds like another Romney. A liberal pretending to be a conservative to dupe the voters.
lots of folks in PA register in the other party if their county is controlled by the other party so that they have a voice in local primary elections, which usually determine the eventual winner.....

Tom Smith appears in his own ads....

Casey has been in hiding for six years, unable to appear in public...if Casey ever debated, it would quickly become apparent that he is an imbecile....

Nice looking ride IMO and I can see 40,000 people in North America wanting to own one. As I've mentioned previously, some folks are paying upwards of $30,000 for golf carts and custom all terrain vehicles www.villagesgolfcartman.com/

It's said that there are over 50,000 golf carts at The Villages alone. These brokeazz right wingers think everyone else is broke like them.

The program that provided rebates for home owners & companies to weatherize, install panels, or install geothermal HVAC systems.

There are thousands of family owned water well drilling businesses in he US. These families invested in drill rigs, costing over $500K & elated equipment. Their main source of work in home building.

When housing collapsed, many would have gone out of business.

But the rebate for geothermal HVAC created a lot of work. Instead of drilling water wells, they were drilling holes for ground loops.

It saved hundreds if not thousands of water well driller's businesses & saved thousands of jobs.

It also created work for HVAC unit manufacturers & installers.

It reduced the amount of heating oil needed & eliminated home emissions.

And it will save these that installed these systems thousands of dollars.

People, schools, government buildings & churches.

This is a successful program that had a positive effect on thousands of families & this country.

Mitt Romney called this waste of money.

As for the Volt, I don't own one (yet) but the couple people I know that have them think they are great.

TEA PARTY says NO! to new taxes

OBAMA’S SECRET SECOND-TERM AGENDA, revealed.“At every turn in his presidency, Obama believes he understands Republicans and can bully them into submission. And at every turn he has underestimated Republican resolve. If Obama wins reelection he will no doubt try to govern in his second term the exact same way he tried to govern in his first. And he will get the exact same results. In other words, if Obama wins reelection, we are definitely going over the fiscal cliff.”
