Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Ok, dufus....

It was a foregone conclusion that the United States was going to invade Japan and physically defeat it without consideration of the cost, in either US lives or Japanese lives. It was anticipated that there would be in excess of one million American casualties, and this was not a deterrent.
So, please tell us what your estimate is of the number of Japanese that would be killed when the United States invaded Japan and physically crushed the country.
10 million? 20 million? 30 million?
Then, compare that to the number of people killed by the two bombs that convinced Japan to surrender and end the war.

Well? How many Japanese lives were saved by the use of the two bombs?
... it's a simple arithmetic problem, dufus. What's your answer?

Try giving an order to that young person from Podunk to go to Podunk and kill his own family.
You just might have a problem with your orders being carried out, dufus.
That wouldn't be a problem with people from places like, oh, say, Chicago where they stack the bullet-riddled corpses to the rafters in the morgue every weekend killing themselves. They obviously don't have a problem blowing their own family and friends away there.

Damn. I don't believe it. We have here a person who knows everything. I guess I've been asking the wrong people to answer these questions.

Ok, manifestly dominant know-it-all, answer these two questions:

Where exactly was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?


Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

A location is required to answer the first question, and a source of money is required to answer the second question.

Which brings to mind Bush and Cheney's numerous lies and fear mongering that sacrificed over 5,000 innocent American soldiers and a few million Iraqis. Now there's some first class hypocrisy and redneck logic.

* Total budget cuts so far:$385
Hard to believe.

Whatever happened to that Senator from Illinois who made an announcement on the Senate floor years ago that raising the debt ceiling was a sign of bad leadership?

Wasn't that Senator Barack Obama, now President Barack Obama, who is now demanding conservatives raise the debt ceiling - yet again.

Yep, it was.

TIME - The mess that Fannie Mae has become is the progeny of many parents: Congress, which created Fannie in 1938 and loaded it down with responsibilities; President Lyndon Johnson, who in 1968 pushed it halfway out the government nest and into a problematic part-private, part-public role in an attempt to reduce the national debt; and Jim Johnson, who presided over Fannie's spectacular growth in the 1990s. But it was Johnson's successor, Raines, who was at the helm when things really went off course. A former Clinton Administration Budget Director, Raines was the first African-American CEO of a Fortune 500 company when he took the helm in 1999. He left in 2004 with the company embroiled in an accounting scandal just as it was beginning to make big investments in subprime mortgage securities that would later sour. Last year Fannie and rival Freddie Mac became wards of the state. #ixzz2HaZqqPOE
In 2004 Congressional hearing to rein in F&F:
Maxine Waters (D): Through nearly a dozen hearings, we were frankly trying to fix something that wasn’t broke. Mr. Chairman, we do not have a crisis at Freddie Mac, and particularly at Fannie Mae, under the outstanding leadership of Franklin Raines.
Gregory Meeks (D):… I’m just pissed off at OFHEO [the regulators trying to warn Congress of insolvency at the GSEs], because if it wasn’t for you, I don’t think we’d be here in the first place.… There’s been nothing that indicated that’s wrong with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac has come up on its own … The question that then comes up is the competence that your agency has with reference to deciding and regulating these GSEs.
Lacy Clay (D): This hearing is about the political lynching of Franklin Raines.
Barney Frank (D): I don’t see anything in this report that raises safety and soundness problems.
....Continue to solely blame Republicans if you want...even in the face of this documented information...can't help foolish.

Statement of Administration Policy: H.R. 1461 - Federal Housing
Finance Reform Act of 2005

The Administration strongly believes that the housing GSEs should be focused on their core housing mission, particularly with respect to low-income Americans and first-time homebuyers. Instead, provisions of H.R. 1461 that expand mortgage purchasing authority would lessen the housing GSEs' commitment to low-income homebuyers.

wanna guess who sponsored it?

The House bill, the 2005 Federal Housing Finance Reform Act, would have created a stronger regulator with new powers to increase capital at Fannie and Freddie, to limit their portfolios and to deal with the possibility of receivership.

Mr Oxley reached out to Barney Frank, then the ranking Democrat on the committee and now its chairman, to secure support on the other side of the aisle. But after winning bipartisan support in the House, where the bill passed by 331 to 90 votes, the legislation lacked a champion in the Senate and faced hostility from the Bush administration.

Adamant that the only solution to the problems posed by Fannie and Freddie was their privatization, the White House attacked the bill. Mr Greenspan also weighed in, saying that the House legislation was worse than no bill at all.

Oxley isn’t too happy about all the criticism Congress is getting for letting Fannie and Freddie get too big.

“All the hand wringing and bedwetting is going on without remembering how the House stepped up on this,” he says.“What did we get from the White House? We got a one-finger salute.”

wouldn't it be nice if the right wing bloggers/FOX would tell the whole story?

Last week, Fox News asked Bush if he was worried about being the Herbert Hoover of the 21st century. "No," Bush replied. "I will be known as somebody who saw a problem and put the chips on the table to prevent the economy from collapsing."

Darrin West could not believe it. The president of the United States was standing in his living room. It was June 17, 2002, a day West recalls as "the highlight of my life." Bush, in Atlanta to introduce a plan to increase the number of minority homeowners by 5.5 million, was touring Park Place South, a development of starter homes in a neighborhood once marked by blight and crime.

West had patrolled there as a police officer, and now he was the proud owner of a $130,000 town house, bought with an adjustable-rate mortgage and a $20,000 government loan as his down payment - just the sort of creative public-private financing Bush was promoting.

"Part of economic security," Bush declared that day, "is owning your own home."

A lot has changed since then. West, beset by personal problems, has left Atlanta. Unable to sell his home for what he owed, he said, he gave it back to the bank last year. Like other communities across the United States, Park Place South has been hit with a foreclosure crisis affecting at least 10 percent of its 232 homes, according to Masharn Wilson, a developer who led Bush's tour. "I just don't think what he envisioned was actually carried out," she said.

Two stints as a summer intern.
Some work on something called "Project Vote" (ACORN, no doubt)
... the next thing on Obama's resume is:
Faculty, University of Chicago Law School/Constitutional Law

Give me a break. That idiot is calling Obama a "constitutional scholar" when Obama had never even passed the bar or even seen the inside of a courtroom as a lawyer before he was put on the faculty at the University of Chicago Law School.
It's obvious Obama didn't even attend classes before he (supposedly) received a degree from Columbia.
I think it's reasonable to conclude Obama has never even read the Constitution.

Obama has chosen Lew to replace Geithner as next Treasury secretary!! Remember Obama crucifying Wall St in the wake of the financial meltdown, President Barack Obama derided Wall Street bonuses as “obscene,” calling them examples of “fat cats who are getting awarded for their failure!”

But now, Mr. Obama has announced that he will nominate as his next Treasury secretary Jack Lew, a man who in 2009 bagged a $950,000 bonus after his bank, Citigroup, received billions in a taxpayer-funded bailout!! Like many of Obama’s promises they have expiration dates this one like others has Expired!!
