Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

You need to present a credible source for anyone to give your posts any credibility, moron.
That photo is not from 1959 but rather from a celebration of Barack SR graduating. You are dumber than sh*t.

"Americans have always elected a president who had an American-born father (besides George Washington) and a capitalist father.
Unless you know of one besides this one."
so in the course of trying to make the point that Obama is unique in that his father wasn't an American citizen so that you could insinuate that there's something wrong about that, you make a declarative statement with all the confidence of any FOXbot who's under the very mistake impression that they know everything. and then you try to be a smartass by also insinuating that no is going to be able to prove that you're wrong.
but you were wrong. on both counts. try to wiggle out of it all you want, but you were WRONG. WRONG. WRONG.
and this whole thing about Obama and all the BS you freaks come up with that's so far out of the mainstream that anyone can see that it's nothing but a desperate attempt to once again figure out a way to run him down without mentioning the real reason you don't like him, which is...only a white man should be sitting in the White House.
hey.....tuff shit. he's there, he's going nowhere, so just deal with it and quit your FOXbot whining.
Obama's father was Frank Marshal Davis. The problem is, Obama's father dumped Obama's mother after he knocked her up.
That's typical for what the black culture has become, isn't it?

Obama would never have been born is the US was like it is today then. After being knocked up and abandoned by some black communist, Ann Dunham would have gone to the Planned Parenthood facility and had an abortion.

In Obama's world, Obama would never have been born.

The recession started in 4th quarter of 2007. Housing started its slide in 2006.

I write. You copy and paste.
I studied the matter. You haven't got a clue about anything.

The CRA welfare mortgages were bundled into traunches and transferred to Special Purpose Vehicles in foreign countries, then sold back to the original mortgage underwriting company as a single unit, removing the individual worthless mortgages from their books and replacing them with a single traunch which cannot be investigated without the governments of the countries these Special Purpose Vehicles were created in forcing these Special Purpose Vehicles to open their books for investigation... something the government of the United States has not done.
If you want direct proof, why not ask Ben Bernanke why he specifically referenced "Special Purpose Vehicles" in his testimony to Barney Frank's committee, after which all questioning of him immediately ceased, and it was enough to shut every Democrat mouth in DC and guarantee 100 percent support from Democrats for him to resume as head of the Fed.

You really don't know anything about this, do you?

Wouldn't his wife be somewhere with or near him? Where is his son and wife celebrating his graduation with him? There would obviously be other photos of that event, wouldn't there? All I see is a group of people with leis standing on the tarmac at an airport. Looks like the typical arrival in Hawaii at that time.

Ann Dunham got knocked up by Frank Marshal Davis, who dumped her after he fucked her. She married a young communist from Kenya that her father met at the airport in Honolulu when he arrived in 1959. Frank Marshal Davis arranged for Ann Dunham to have her baby in Kenya, out of the country and not an inconvenience to him. Ann Dunham returned to the United States, having been abandoned by Obama's father, and, being a college dropout with a black child, she most likely worked as a prostitute, the dominant profession of women who appeared in pornographic magazines of that era.
Capitalism is better than communism.
Canada is better than Kenya.

Community Reinvestment Act had nothing to do with subprime crisis

Fresh off the false and politicized attack on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, today we’re hearing the know-nothings blame the subprime crisis on the Community Reinvestment Act — a 30-year-old law that was actually weakened by the Bush administration just as the worst lending wave began. This is even more ridiculous than blaming Freddie and Fannie.

....Better targets for blame in government circles might be the 2000 law which ensured that credit default swaps would remain unregulated, the SEC’s puzzling 2004 decision to allow the largest brokerage firms to borrow upwards of 30 times their capital and that same agency’s failure to oversee those brokerage firms in subsequent years as many gorged on subprime debt.(Barry Ritholtz had an excellent and more comprehensive survey of how Washington contributed to the crisis in this week’s Barron’s.)

There’s plenty more good reading on the CRA and the subprime crisis out in the blogosphere. Ellen Seidman, who headed the Office of Thrift Supervision in the late 90s, has written several fact-filled posts about the CRA controversey, including one just last week. University of Oregon professor and economist Mark Thoma has also defended the CRA on his blog. I also learned something from a post back in April by Robert Gordon, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, which ends with this ditty:

It’s telling that, amid all the recent recriminations, even lenders have not fingered CRA. That’s because CRA didn’t bring about the reckless lending at the heart of the crisis. Just as sub-prime lending was exploding, CRA was losing force and relevance. And the worst offenders, the independent mortgage companies, were never subject to CRA — or any federal regulator. Law didn’t make them lend. The profit motive did. And that is not political correctness. It is correctness.

You just like the "some" you talk about are cowards. At least Mel Gibson had a reason for his delusions in the movie " Conspiracy Theory " &, he acted on those delusions. You & your mindless minions won't do a damn thing. You covet the spirit of fear!

The Sarah Palinization of the financial crisis

Of all the canards that have been offered about the financial crisis, few are more repellant than the claim that the “real cause’’ of the mortgage meltdown was blacks and Hispanics.

Oh, excuse me -- did I just accuse someone of racism? Sorry. Proponents of the above actually blame the crisis on “government policy’’ to boost home-ownership among low-income families, who just happened to be disproportionately non-white and immigrant. Specifically, the Community Reinvestment Act “forced’’ banks to make bad loans to irresponsible borrowers, while Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac provided the financial torque by purchasing billions worth of subprime paper.

The argument has been discredited time and again, shriveling up almost as soon as it’s exposed to sunlight. But it keeps coming back, mainly because the anti-government narrative gives Republicans a way to deflect allegations that de-regulation allowed Wall Street to run wild. It’s the financial version of Sarah Palin’s new line that “extreme environmentalists” caused the BP oil spill.

After losing the 2012 election the G.O.P. engaged in a bit of soul-searching, and talked publicly about changing their image, if not their policies. That phase is definitively over. The Republicans are back to denouncing every utterance that strays from an absolutely rigid right-wing orthodoxy, and even ones that really don’t.[...]

In another sign of the intense pressure on Republicans to prove their bona fides, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas on Sunday released evidence indicating that he is really and truly American. I mean he gave the Dallas Morning News his birth certificate proving that he is a “natural born American”— and therefore eligible to run for president. Mr. Cruz was born in Canada (not quite Kenya, but definitely not the U.S. of A.). But his mother was an American citizen, meaning he never had to go through a naturalization exercise.

How bizarre that Mr. Cruz felt he had to do this. Of course, the way the Republicans are going, by 2016 merely having lived in the socialist haven north of this country will probably be enough to knock him out of contention.

The University of Chicago who owns that hospital is a private institution. It can pay whatever it wants. The $300K + is an exaggeration.

How is working for a private institution t market rate a crime. I thought you right whiners were all about free enterprise.

Explain the numerous pictures of Barack Sr &, Jr together. Barack Sr, Jr, & Jr's mother all together. I look like my dad, my brother looks like my mother but, we have the same parents! He doesn't have to look like his father to be his son. Haven't you seen Maury before?
