Yep.
FACT: "50% of subprime loans were made by mortgage service companies not subject to comprehensive federal supervision and another 30% were made by affiliates of banks or thrifts which are not subject to routine supervision or examinations." Nothing to do with Fannie and Freddie.

Yuuup!

Unfortunately, all cons know is the name Barney Frank... and everything else is dreamed up from there.

Facts are noticeably absent since it doesn't fit into that equation.

Obama specifically gave 3 million dollars to illegals that do not work as tax refunds.

While harassing Conservatives.

White House staffers have adopted a new and unflattering nickname for their boss: "Obam-me," Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan says she heard in chats with a few senators.

And how did the staffers come up with that name?

"Because it's all about him and his big thoughts," Noonan writes in a column. "I guess the second-term team is not quite as adoring as the first."
Noonan, a former speechwriter for Ronald Reagan, joins a wide swath of Republicans who have complained about the president's apparent self-absorption.

Just this week he was taken to task for going ahead with a speech attacking the GOP on the economy just as news of the Washington Navy Yard slaughter was coming out.

Former GOP congressman Joe Scarborough said Obama seemed "bored or disconnected or out of touch or something," adding, "He's president of the United States. He should be smart enough."

The Weekly Standard's Stephen Hayes called the decision to press on with the speech "small and petty."

Days after House Republicans voted nearly unanimously for a measure to defund Obamacare, Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) reminded them of one little detail: Their own budget relies on savings from President Barack Obama's signature health care reform law.

During an appearance on ABC's "This Week," Van Hollen, the ranking Democrat on the House Budget Committee, said Republicans owe the public an explanation for how they can regularly vote to get rid of the Affordable Care Act -- they have now voted 42 times to repeal or defund it -- when they passed a budget that balances in part because of Obamacare savings.

Republicans "have to explain to the American people how they voted for a budget that includes all of the Medicare savings from Obamacare, that includes the same level of revenue generated from Obamacare and, in fact, would not even balance in 10 years, if not for the Affordable Care Act," Van Hollen said.

They have?
Could you tell us where Obama and Hillary were during the attack?
Could you tell us why no forces were dispatched considering they did not know hoe long it would last?
Could you tell us who was the person or persons directing the operation in real time?
and finally,
Could you tell us why Obama and Hillary lied and blamed it on a video?
According to testimony given before the House Committee on February 7, 2013 Leon Panetta testified that the President was in constant contact with military authorities and monitoring the situation closely. The AP also reported that Obama was meeting with Panetta and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen Martin Dempsey when the reports of the attack came in and that he order troops to be deployed.
Where was Hillary? At that point it didn't actually matter since it was strictly a military affair.
Immediately following the attack rescue efforts were being run out of the embassy in Tripoli and by the Army's Southern Command.
According to Libyan witnesses on the ground the group responsible for the attack was Ansar al Sharia and that the video did indeed serve as an impetus for the attack. So even if Obama and Clinton claimed the attack on the video, which they never did, where's the lie?
Got it moron?

There's a reason for stonewalling. Guilt.
The Benghazi survivors have been mysteriously silent, emails and documentation surrounding Benghazi have not been forthcoming and the top echelon in the IRS have been anything but cooperative and truthful.
Brings back memories of Nixon's Watergate.
And once again Carol, you're making statements that you can't back up with any facts or evidence.

Can you tell me why Muslims in Benghazi would not riot when others were?
Dumbass.
Because Obama and Hillary already knew who was responsible and then went out and blamed a video.

John Boehner Is Letting GOP Extremists Hold the Government Hostage

How could he allow the spending bill defunding Obamacare to reach the House floor? He’s not even trying to stand up to the GOP’s hostage-takers—and he’s easily the worst speaker in modern history.

EGYPT BANS MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD GROUP


CAIRO (AP)-- An Egyptian court has banned the Muslim Brotherhood group and ordered its assets confiscated in a dramatic escalation of a crackdown by the military-backed government against supporters of the ousted Islamist president Mohammed Morsi.

Egypt state TV said the court issued its ruling on Monday.

The Brotherhood was outlawed for most of its 85 years in existence. But after the 2011 ouster of autocrat Hosni Mubarak, it was allowed to work openly, formed a political party and rose to power in a string of post-Mubarak elections. In March, it registered as a recognized non-governmental organization.

*The United States should follow Egypt's example, O'bama would have to go.

Obama was against raising the deficit before he was for it. Has the stimulus and the rest of Obama's $ 5 Trillion deficit spending worked? More people are on food stamps, less people are working now than when he was elected and the average income has dropped.

And, I bet, you think he's doing a great job. For who?

Inflation....pumping $ 5 Trillion in deficits and $ 4 Trillion from the Fed has done nothing but inflate the stock market and Wall St which will drop like a lead balloon once the Fed stimulus is removed. How exactly do you think unwinding the Fed $$ Trillions will affect the economy? With oil at $105/ barrel and Obama opposed to the Keystone pipeline it will remian high. That's $ 500 billion removed from the pockets of American taxpayers and I bet you wonder why the economy isn't doing better.

Go ahead blame it on Bush and call me a racist. It's the typical looney left response
