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 ...

All of you Obama people are anti-child. You are destroying the country with your moronic ideals, dirtbag. GFY.
LOL. And I see you apparently live in New York City. Enjoy buying every drop of water you consume in the very near future all thanks to Bush, Cheney and your friends at Halliburton. And if you or your love ones drop dead as a result of exposure to the poisoned water, too bad for you b/c Bush/Cheney's 2005 Energy Policy Act states the oil & gas companies are immune to suit. LOL.

there it is.

the hatred you harbor for this man is truly beyond belief.

Darrell Issa (Almost) Successfully Trolls Democrats for Not Caring About Benghazi Victims

Pat Smith and Charles Woods, who've appeared in other media to shame Congress and the president for not working hard enough on Benghazi, called on the lower house to call more witnesses. If the House decides to create a special select committee—something leadership hasn't ruled out—we'll surely hear more from these parents. Faced with them, the five Republicans and two Democrats who stuck around the Oversight Committee basically one-upped each other on pathos, with South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy putting in a eulogy/apology worthy of Tennessee Williams.

At some point during these testimonies, an Issa staffer stood at the back of the room and took a photo, revealing how few Democrats were there. Issa tweeted this, twice.

PHOTO:@OversightDems excuse themselves from testimony of #Benghazi heroes' family members #PJNet pic.twitter.com/NP9u2I2noC
— Darrell Issa (@DarrellIssa) September 19, 2013

After ARB testifies, only 2 @OversightDems decide to stay & hear testimony from family members on 2nd panel PHOTO: pic.twitter.com/zfOjjppU0V
— Darrell Issa (@DarrellIssa) September 19, 2013

Notice how Issa softened the accusation in the second tweet—from all "Oversight Dems" to all but two. Didn't matter—the story rocketed around conservative media that, as Fox News put it, Democrats were "spitting on the graves" of Benghazi victims by not sitting for the parents' testimonies.

Just how cheap is this story? Well: There are 24 Republicans and 17 Democrats on the committee. Democrats sit on the left, from the witness's perspective; Republicans sit on the right. Here's a screenshot from the moment Gowdy started speaking to Woods and Smith.

There don't seem to be 24 Republicans sitting down for this; there seem to be six of 'em. So does Rep. Patrick McHenry not care about Benghazi victims? Does Rep. Thomas Massie not care about Benghazi victims? Does Rep. Doc Hastings not care about Benghazi victims?

You come here to tell others about your 'possible future home'?
There's a core of you folks that really need to get off this thread and get an actual life. I can always count on seeing certain names however infrequently I stop by.
On both sides.
You don't seem to understand the process of home buying. We have the option to walk away if the inspection reveals a costly repair and the sellers will not fix it.

The inspection and appraisal are scheduled for next week and we can walk away if there's a problem with costly repairs.

So, basically, we bought a home. After the inspection, we can say it's definitely ours.

Sarah Palin: GOP ‘Gutless’ for Not Standing Against Obamacare

“Whenever anything bad happens, the media blames Republicans for it,” Palin writes.“That’s not an excuse to roll over and play dead. It’s a call to follow the advice I give my daughters: Woman up, stand your ground, and fight like a girl!”

http://swampland.time.com/2013/09/22/sarah-pa...

but it already looks like a catfight in the House.

"Bank of America today announced agreements with the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) to resolve outstanding and potential repurchase and certain other claims relating to the origination, sale and delivery of substantially all residential mortgage loans originated and sold directly to Fannie Mae from January 1, 2000 through December 31, 2008 by entities related to Countrywide Financial Corporation (legacy Countrywide) and Bank of America, National Association (BANA).

In addition, Bank of America announced that it signed definitive agreements to sell the servicing rights on 2.0 million residential mortgage loans totaling approximately $306 billion, as measured by the aggregate unpaid principal balance (as of November 30, 2012).

“As we enter 2013, we sharpen our focus on serving our three customer groups and helping to move the economy forward,” said Bank of America Chief Executive Officer Brian Moynihan.“Together, these agreements are a significant step in resolving our remaining legacy mortgage issues, further streamlining and simplifying the company and reducing expenses over time.”

Fannie Mae agreements

The agreements with Fannie Mae cover loans with an aggregate original principal balance of approximately $1.4 trillion and an aggregate outstanding principal balance of approximately $300 billion. Unresolved claims by Fannie Mae for alleged breaches of selling representations and warranties with respect to these loans totaled $11.2 billion of unpaid principal balance at September 30, 2012. These agreements extinguish substantially all of those unresolved claims, as well as any future representations and warranties claims associated with loans sold directly to Fannie Mae from January 1, 2000 to December 31, 2008, subject to certain exceptions which Bank of America does not expect to be material.

As part of the agreement to settle representations and warranties claims, Bank of America will make a cash payment to Fannie Mae of $3.6 billion and also repurchase for $6.75 billion certain residential mortgage loans sold to Fannie Mae, which Bank of America has valued at less than the purchase price. These actions are expected to be covered by existing reserves and an additional $2.5 billion (pretax) in representations and warranties provision recorded in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Bank of America also agreed to make a cash payment to Fannie Mae to settle substantially all of Fannie Mae’s outstanding and future claims for compensatory fees arising out of past foreclosure delays. This payment is expected to be covered by existing reserves and an additional provision of $260 million (pretax) recorded in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Together, these actions described above are expected to reduce Bank of America’s pretax income by approximately $2.7 billion in the fourth quarter of 2012...."

So why do you devote so much time and effort talking about Gsalt in the third person? Why don't you just go back to being Nobraina? It's not like you've fooled anyone, even those who won't call you on it.

For the same reason he claims bills should be separated and not bootstrapped, but has no problems with the debt ceiling bill being bootstrapped to Obamacare.

Granted. Can't count the number of times I asked "how are these people affording these overpriced houses" when we were renting to wait out the bubble bursting.
Eventually the kind of loans that allowed them to do that became clear. And why there were so many foreclosures a few years later.
Isn't it amazing how these loan companies thought people could afford them?

Just like the realtors did?

And the developers kept jacking up the prices?

Isn't it amazing, son?

That's about as fundamentally transforming an image as one can get, short of the nazi "final solution."

Three Strikes And You’re, Well, Still Playing The Same Game

Steve Benen notes that Republicans have been completely wrong about the U.S. economy three times in the past two decades — about Clinton, Bush, and Obama — but haven’t changed their doctrine a bit.
