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

So, you expect the President to work how any hours a day? Do they get a break? Lunch?
Wow. Talk about disconnect.

A lunch break and a BJ in the workplace aren't in the same universe.

Probably why so many of us feel we're living in a parallel one presently.

Hey clueless fk, Carol was talking about the president, not TV & radio people, or worse yet, frikkin actors. A moron like you does not have the ability to put things in context.

Carol is correct and not a hypocrite, but you sure are an airhead and it's no wonder you make a good Obama voter.

Comparing Clinton to TV actors on the right demonstrates what a moron you are.

Nutjob!

Baawwwaaahhh!!!!!

Clinton was a flawed man. He's said so and has been forgiven by the American Public. That's why he's so popular to this day.
Clinton had a consensual relationship with a woman, unlike many gay, closeted Repugs who do their disgusting acts in public men's rooms, etc.
Criminal Repugs who deny and hide the truth. Larry Craig, anyone?? David (diaper boy) Vitter?? John (screwing an aide's wife then buying them off) Ensign?? Mark (sexually abusing male pages) Foley??
How about Bill O'Reilly?? His sexual harassment of a young woman cost him $10 Million to keep her quiet.
How about what he did to his wife when she wanted a divorce?? Going after her police officer boyfriend??
This is all ok with Aunt Betty??
""In October of 2004, the words “loofa” and “falafel” were mainstreamed into our sexual vocabulary. To the shock of some, and to the entertainment of millions, religious right wingnut Bill O'Reilly was accused of sexually harassing coworker Andrea Mackris with explicit phone conversations that were allegedly taped. Besides the use of loofas and falafels as sex objects, Bill O’Reilly had also revealed homoerotic desires to use vibrators on himself, fantasies of explicit Caribbean vacations, and a desire for Ms. Mackris to perform oral sex on him, but not finish. He also revealed some disturbing news about what Fox News was planning to do to Al Franken. To Bill O’Reilly’s enemies, this news was God sent.
The reason people were fascinated with this story is the same reason they are fascinated with Rush Limbaugh’s drug use, Matt Drudge’s allegedly gay affairs, and the penisification of underage boys by anti-gay activist and idolized Republican Mark Foley: we love exposing hypocrites! Bill O’Reilly has used his highly rated program, The O’Reilly Factor, to criticize sexuality in the media. His favorite targets have been rapper Ludacris, Janet Jackson, porn stars, and all the other “immoral” Hollywood stars. The only Hollywood star whom he constantly praises (or at least used to praise) is Mel Gibson, the director of the anti-Semitic Passion of the Christ. The fact that Mel Gibson was going to turn Bill O’Reilly’s soft-porn epic Those Who Trespass into a movie certainly helped.
On October 28, 2004, O'Reilly and Mackris reached an out of court settlement, and dropped all charges against each other. It was widely rumored that O’Reilly paid Mackris close to ten million dollars to “shut up” and destroy the tapes. The fact that the story disappeared from the media soon afterwards remains a mystery that people should question.""
You fail to mention Rush Limbaugh's addictions or Glenn Beck's multiple addictions.
You fail to mention Larry Craig, David Vitter, John Ensign, Mark Foley, or any Right wing male who've done worse than Clinton could imagine.
You're the worst sort of hypocrite. A stupid one.

As I told frontporch, helping those who "qualify" for a downpayment is a far cry from giving a mortgage loan to anyone who can sign on the dotted line whether they can afford it or not.
You're supposed to be smart. The difference is pretty striking and clear.

So the New Bedford landfill that's being searched is named Crapo Hill. Cute!

The bombers each had laptops, probably smart phones as well__there should be a treasure trove of info on those devices. Also__the wife__while she claims to know little, it's only a matter of time before LE starts leaning on her.

I wonder if she's learned to speak any Russian or just sat around and diddled herself while everyone else in the room was speaking Russian?

You'd probably pay your employees to have orgies on your dime.

At least Clinton confessed and admitted his actions were "morally indefensible".

That's all it takes to be forgiven.

O'Reilly has never been the president or the leader of the nation. He stepped over the line flirting and became a victim himself of extortion and blackmail.

The critics have forgotten that the House passed a GSE reform bill in 2005 that could well have prevented the current crisis, says Mr Oxley, now vice-chairman of Nasdaq.
He fumes about the criticism of his House colleagues.“All the handwringing 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.”
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 privatisation, the White House attacked the bill. Mr Greenspan also weighed in, saying that the House legislation was worse than no bill at all.
“We missed a golden opportunity that would have avoided a lot of the problems we’re facing now, if we hadn’t had such a firm ideological position at the White House and the Treasury and the Fed,” Mr Oxley says.
http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/8780c35e-7e91-11dd-...
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.

deal with it.
The Democrats were in the majority in the Senate in 2005. 49 D and 2 I voting with them. Do research anything or do you just copy and paste and naively assume the person writing your OP-ed piece is informed?

On January 26, 2005, the Federal Housing Enterprise Regulatory Reform Act of 2005 (S.190) was first introduced in the Senate. After being reported favorably by the Senate's Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs in July 2005, the bill was never considered by the full Senate for a vote.
The House also introduced similar legislation, the Federal Housing Finance Reform Act of 2005 (H.R. 1461). The House Financial Services Committee crafted changes and produced a Committee Report to the legislation. It was passed by the House in October in spite of President Bush's oppossition to the House version: "The regulatory regime envisioned by H.R. 1461 is considerably weaker than that which governs other large complex financial institutions."
The legislation met with opposition from both Democrats and Republicans at that point and the Senate never took up the House passed version for consideration after that.
Bush cannot be blamed when both sides dropped the ball over splitting hairs over the exact wording or Democrats demanding it be watered down.
Every single sponsor of that bill that could have prevented the housing crisis was a Republican.
Not one Democrat.
In 2005, Repugnants controlled the House, Senate, and Presidency. If Bush wanted something, he would have gotten it from a Repugnant Congress!! DUH!!

To say it's not Bush's fault, as Chief Repugnant in Charge, is as stupid as so many of the claims you make in his defense.

Here's the truth about Bush and housing;

""As early as February 2002, Bush said at a conference on retirement savings,“I want America to be an ownership society, a society where a life of work becomes a retirement of independence.” Even as Texas governor, he told senior citizens:“Ownership in our society should not be an exclusive club.... Everyone should be a part owner in the American dream.”

----------

Bush ignored the housing bubble and let it grow.

Your lies to the contrary are just that, lies, filthy ones.

Much like your lies concerning the Iraq War.

You fault people who were lied to for voting based on a pack of lies presented by Bush and Cheney.

You're really sick.

Why do you think there were so many bad loans that no one ended up making a supposed profit from buying which ultimatey caused the collapse?

Why were there so many houses sitting empty because of massive foreclosures?

Maybe it's you living in a parallel universe.
