Barack Obama, our next President

I never realized how ignorant Ospammer really is, To see him try and speak in public without a teleprompter is so sad. I am embarrassed for him. 57 States?

Cant blame him for hiding his college records along with everything else he hides from the fools that elected him.

I guess the united negro college fund isn’t working either.

Sounds great but did Bush say give loans to people that can't pay for them?
//////////
THE seeds of today’s financial meltdown lie in the Community Reinvestment Act – a law passed in 1977 and made riskier by unwise amendments and regulatory rulings in later decades.
CRA was meant to encourage banks to make loans to high-risk borrowers, often minorities living in unstable neighborhoods. That has provided an opening to radical groups like ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) to abuse the law by forcing banks to make hundreds of millions of dollars in “subprime” loans to often uncreditworthy poor and minority customers.
Any bank that wants to expand or merge with another has to show it has complied with CRA – and approval can be held up by complaints filed by groups like ACORN.
In fact, intimidation tactics, public charges of racism and threats to use CRA to block business expansion have enabled ACORN to extract hundreds of millions of dollars in loans and contributions from America’s financial institutions .
The Woods Fund report makes it clear Obama was fully aware of the intimidation tactics used by ACORN’s Madeline Talbott in her pioneering efforts to force banks to suspend their usual credit standards. Yet he supported Talbott in every conceivable way. He trained her personal staff and other aspiring ACORN leaders, he consulted with her extensively, and he arranged a major boost in foundation funding for her efforts.
And, as the leader of another charity, the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, Obama channeled more funding Talbott’s way – ostensibly for education projects but surely supportive of ACORN’s overall efforts.

One of the programs is designed to help deserving families who have bad credit histories to qualify for homeownership loans.

You can ignore that which doesn't fit the right wing meme, but you can't erase the facts.

Bush drive for home ownership fueled housing bubble

The president also leaned on mortgage brokers and lenders to devise their own innovations. "Corporate America," he said, "has a responsibility to work to make America a compassionate place."

And corporate America, eyeing a lucrative market, delivered in ways Bush might not have expected, with a proliferation of too-good-to-be-true teaser rates and interest-only loans that were sold to investors in a loosely regulated environment. But Bush populated the financial system's alphabet soup of oversight agencies with people who, like him, wanted fewer rules, not more.

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/21/business/wo...

In the 2004 election cycle, mortgage bankers and brokers poured nearly $847,000 into Bush's re-election campaign, more than triple their contributions in 2000, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.

Poll of Absentee Voters in Israel Finds Overwhelming Support for Romney

An exit poll of Americans who voted absentee in Israel finds Republican nominee Mitt Romney beating President Obama by a significant margin, 85 percent to 14 percent.

IVoteIsrael, a nonpartisan organization founded over the summer to encourage American absentee voting, conducted the poll among 1,572 of the approximately 80,000 people the organization registered to vote absentee. The survey has a margin of error of 2.5 percent.

Among those who said they were voting on “jobs and the economy,” Romney beat Obama 59 percent to 29 percent. Among those voting on Iran, the margin was even larger, 86 percent to 5 percent. Among those voting on Israel-related issues, such as Jerusalem and the peace process, Romney won 89 percent to 3.5 percent.

The organization estimates that the swing-state breakdown for absentee ballots cast in Israel includes 7,500 votes in Florida, 3,500 in Ohio, and 3,500 in Pennsylvania.

The exit poll showed that Romney won the Florida vote 85 percent to 15 percent and the Ohio vote 86 percent to 18 percent. No data was given for Pennsylvania.

CIA security officers went to the aid of State Department staff less than 25 minutes after they got the first call for help during the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, U.S. intelligence officials said Thursday, as they laid out a detailed timeline of the CIA's immediate response to the attack from its annex less than a mile from the diplomatic mission.

http://news.yahoo.com/us-officials-no-delays-...

Fox News reported that when CIA officers at the annex called higher-ups to tell them the consulate was under fire, they were twice told to "stand down." The CIA publicly denied the report.

Forget the damn polls and pundits, vote!!
by Mark Levin on Thursday, November 1, 2012 at 12:20pm ·

As you know, I have spent the last several months trying to draw attention to, and support for, a number of conservatives who are running for the Senate and the House in some very tough races. If they win, we will take control of the Senate and hold the House, and a number of wonderful conservatives will be sent to Washington or hold their current offices.



As I have said for years, you are the Paul and Paulette Reveres who will make the difference in this crucial election. You are the grassroots activists, the Tea Party activists, and the heart and soul of the conservative movement. You are the constitutionalists who stand for individual sovereignty and unalienable rights.





I am not interested in the polls. I am not interested in reading tea leaves. I am not interested in predictions. I, like you, am interested in victory! We must win this election, and we must win big. And if we do, it is thanks to you, not the polls, not the predictions, not media figures, and not me.





Below are the Senate candidates who've been on my program and deserve your support. If you live in a state with other Republican Senate candidates, I would encourage you to support them as well. Just because I did not have your candidate on my program does not mean they are unworthy of your active support and vote. We must take back the Senate or we will not repeal Obamacare even if we win the presidency. And the Romney agenda will be obstructed by Harry Reid and his party every step of the way.





The Senate is crucial, and has been mostly ignored by many of my radio colleagues. These Senate races are very close. Please do all you can to help these candidates and the others not listed here! God bless you.

With Mitt Romney holding a narrow edge in Florida, black clergy in the state mounted a push to get worshipers from the pews to polling places on Sunday so they could cast their votes early.

In Sunday sermons, Florida clergy invoked Biblical parables and the civil-rights struggles of the 1960s to persuade congregations to vote during the eight-day early-voting period that ends next Saturday. Pastors at black churches in Miami, Orlando and Jacksonville arranged caravans of buses to help people get to the polls after services ended.

When traumatic events strike, it is very common for people to look for causes that seem to explain events. Most commonly, for those who do not find purely scientific answers satisfying, the tendency is to ascribe the event to God. God is, after all, the author of all things, and it seems reasonable to look to him for explanation. How, then, can we understand the occurrence of such evil forces as Hurricane Sandy, if God is good.

Jesuit writer Nathan O'Halloran, while deflecting away from God direct responsibility for natural events like Hurricane Sandy, does find religious justification for our tendency to blame God for such disasters. He points out, in effect, that our beliefs about what God has done say more about us than they say about God.

“[O]riginal sin 'causes' Hurricane Sandy in the sense that, because of original sin, human beings now perceive and experience hurricanes and other natural disasters as 'evil' in some sense rather than simply being. This is a more indirect sense in which original sin 'causes' a hurricane. By this I mean that it 'causes' a hurricane as an evil when before it would have not been perceived as such. According to this perspective, hurricanes and natural disasters always existed, but the first self-conscious beings may not have experienced them as evil.”

In proposing that God creates hurricanes to cause harm to men, commentators are focusing on one of the aspects of God: retribution for sins. And Hurricane Sandy has caused lots of such comments. Several preachers of suggested that Sandy was visited upon United States because of homosexuality. As an example, John McTernan opines:

“I am not saying this super destructive hurricane was because of the homosexual act. The Holy God of Israel will judge individuals for their sinful acts.

“What I am saying is the judgment is for the government promoting homosexual 'marriage' as an ordinance. Once a nation legalizes sin, like abortion and homosexual “marriage”: that nation falls under the direct judgment of the Holy God of Israel. God does not destroy a nation right away but first warns.”

Or, in the alternative, McTernan suggests perhaps it's because of our policy towards Israel:

“Hurricane Sandy is hitting 21 years to the day of the Perfect Storm of October 30, 1991 .... This was the day that President George Bush Sr. initiated the Madrid Peace Process to divide the land of Israel, including Jerusalem. America has been under God’s judgment since this event. Both of these hurricanes were cause by freakish weather patterns that came together to create (sic).”

That judgment was echoed by WND White House correspondent William Koenig, who told us,“When we put pressure on Israel to divide their land, we have enormous, record-setting events, often within 24 hours ... Hurricane Katrina, 9/11 – we have experienced over 90 record-setting, all-time events as we have acted against Israel. And the greater the pressure on Israel to ‘cooperate,’ the greater the catastrophe.”

Some proclamation sounded almost gleeful. Writing on an Islamic extremist blog, one person had this to add: "God destroys their country like they destroyed ours (Iraq). This is on the head of the dog Obama." This is an inverse mirror image of McTernan's and Koenig's claim. A series of tweets from Shirley Phelps-Roper, daughter of Fred Phelps of Westboro Baptist Church, was similar in tone. After Sandy cause destruction in the Caribbean, she tweeted:“God sent the whirlwind.#ThankGodForRighteou sJudgment,” and later,“wrath from God hangs over NY and Doomed USA like a Sword of Damocles.”http://www.examiner. com/article/why-god-caused-hur ricane-sandy

SILENT NO MORE: NAVY SEALS FURIOUS WITH OBAMA

"The SEALs removed one threat to America, now it's time for the voters to remove the other." - Retired Navy SEAL Brad Nagel

Former Navy SEALs Brad Nagel, Scott Taylor, Ryan Zinke and Benjamin Smith in Veterans for a Strong America's expose.Veterans for a Strong America has filmed a shocking interview with Navy SEALs who tell the TRUTH about the Obama Administration and the incredible danger it poses to America.
These guys know the facts. They were silenced by their service. But they refuse to remain quiet any longer. The stakes are simply too high.
HELP US NOW. HELP US SPEAK OUT. HELP US WARN THE AMERICAN PUBLIC.
SELECT HERE TO HELP VETERANS FOR A STRONG AMERICA RELEASE THIS SHOCKING VIDEO!

"Obama's love affair with the Muslim Brotherhood poses a clear and present danger to America, but worst of all are the lies and failure to act, especially in Benghazi, that got my buddies KILLED," says Brad Nagel, 20 year Navy veteran and former SEAL.

Newly released emails indicate that the Obama White House KNEW WITHIN 30 MINUTES of the initial uprising that the American Embassy in Benghazi was under full terrorist attack. An American drone reportedly sent the State Department situation room real time footage of the jihadist assault. As State Department officials watched the bloody, clearly pre-planned and well organized attack unfold; our Commander in Chief refused to take action. It has been further reported that instead of staying in the situation room, the President retired to his quarters for an early bed time, leaving horrified State Department personnel alone with the live feed horrors from Benghazi.
HELP US RALLY OUR FELLOW SOLDIERS, SAILORS, AIRMEN, MARINES AND EVERY RED BLOODED AMERICAN TO VOTE BARACK OBAMA OUT OF OFFICE - SELECT HERE!
Of the four killed during that 7 hour battle, 2 of the people died in the final hour. Ty Woods, a former SEAL teammate of Nagel's was one of the last to die. "Ty ran his weapon dry and killed 50 jihadists before he was taken down. If this Administration had used the intel they had and sent help, my friend might still be alive" said Nagel.
Other SEALs are just as furious with Obama.

"If Obama sent Ambassador Stephens to a death sentence mission in Benghazi; what will he be willing to do to the American people to appease what appear to be deep Muslim Brotherhood ties?" - asked former Navy SEAL Benjamin Smith.

Brad Nagel, Benjamin Smith and a host of other SEALs have come forward to speak out in a serious of shocking and hard hitting commercials we are producing at Veterans for a Strong America.
HELP US NOW. HELP US SPEAK OUT. HELP US WARN THE AMERICAN PUBLIC.
SELECT HERE TO HELP VETERANS FOR A STRONG AMERICA RELEASE THIS SHOCKING VIDEO!
IT IS IMPERATIVE WE GET THESE VIDEOS TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC BEFORE ELECTION DAY.
BARACK OBAMA IS A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO AMERICA.
BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP.
We are simply a bunch of prior service and retired military guys who are afraid for our country. We are not wealthy. Many of us struggle just to get by. We simply do not have the funds to get this video out.
We were silenced during our years in the service. But the oath we took to protect and defend the Constitution DEMANDS that we speak out now, to protect America.
