Still blaming Obama for the effects of the Bush recession.
Recovery reaches the top first & the rest later.
More proof the government, the demorats own this, doorknob:

"In the case of the subprime borrowers they were charged higher interest rates and were required to pay for default insurance. This higher burden increased the risk of default. The subprime mortgages became bad investments and no amount of securitization would alter this aspect. But the process of producing graduated risk securities backed by the subprime mortgages disguised the fact that they were bad investments. The perceived status of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as quasi-governmental institutions enabled them to sell their toxic product world-wide."

your boys own this, dumbass, take your head out of yur rear end and wake up to the truth.

A prominent NAACP official recognized Martin Luther King Day by labeling black senator Tim Scott a puppet for the Republican party.“A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy,” said Reverend William Barber II, the president of North Carolina’s NAACP chapter.

The State reports that Barber’s remarks came in a speech in Scott’s home state of South Carolina.“The extreme right wing down here,” he said,“finds a black guy to be senator and claims he’s the first black senator since Reconstruction and then he goes to Washington, D.C., and articulates the agenda of the Tea Party.”

Last year, Barber gained national attention leading the “Moral Monday” protests in opposition to North Carolina’s Republican governor, Pat McCrory.

Scott is the first black senator from the South since Reconstruction. He dismissed Barber’s remarks as ”baseless and meaningless rhetoric.”

“I will honor the memory of Dr. King by being proactive in holding the door for others and serving my fellow man. And Rev. Barber will remind me and others of what not to do,” he told the Daily Caller.

"According to one of the key witnesses expected to testify before the committee this week, even Ambassador Stevens himself had repeatedly requested more security personnel, but was turned down.
Lt. Col. Andy Wood, the former head of a U.S. Special Forces "Site Security Team" in Libya, has told CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson that he and many other senior staff at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, "felt we needed more, not less" security personnel in the country, but were told "to do with less. For what reasons, I don't know."
http://www.cbsnews.com/news/top-us-counterter...
The lying left Keeps on spinnin'!
"A key witness?" Lt. Col. Andy Wood has an inflated opinion of his own self-worth. He was a member of the Utah National Guard. He never served in the "military" and was assigned to Libya for a mere six months... February 12, 2012 to August 14, 2012, where he was put in command of the 16 member Temporary Member Site Security Team working directly for the Regional Security Officer. The same SST team that Ambassador Stevens declined two specific offers from General Carter Ham to sustain in the weeks before the terrorist attacks."

Senate Report, page 20/21:

State Department headquarters made the decision not to request an extension of the SST's mission in August 2012, approximately one month prior to the attacks, because State believed that many of the duties of the SST could be accomplished by local security forces, DS agents, or other State Department capabilities. As a result, DoD changed the mission of the DoD personnel in Libya from protection of the U.S. Embassy to training with the Libyan Security forces."

Mr. Wood, in his lengthy written statement to the committee, stated that the "State Department's decision not to extend SST's security work beyond August 5th terminated our work in this capacity."

"DoD confirmed to the Committee that Ambassador Stevens declined two specific offers from General Carter Ham, then the head of AFRICOM, to sustain the SST in the weeks before the terrorist attacks. After reading the August 16, 2012, EAC cable, General Ham called Ambassador Stevens and asked ifthe Embassy needed the SST from the U.S. military, but Stevens told Ham it did not. Shortly thereafter, Stevens traveled to Germany for a previously scheduled meeting with Ham at AFRICOM headquarters. Ham again offered to sustain the SST at the meeting, and Stevens again declined."

I may have misspelled his name a couple of times, but at least I respect the memory of the man unlike Hillary the Pillory-ist.

"I" never would have left him there as helpless zealot bait, a lamb among wolves.

Here's a tip: Hillary would not have treated you any better than she did him if you were in Steven's position. Consider "that" the next time you lie for your glorious elitist pigs at the top.

I don't expect you to understand. You have obviously never worked for a government agency. You are absolutely clueless when it comes to U.S. Foreign Policy and the workings of the State Department. It is better if you just sit back and remain silent on the subject if you don't want to confirm your ignorance.

Former Virginia governor Robert F. McDonnell and his wife Maureen were charged Tuesday with illegally accepting gifts, luxury vacations and large loans from a wealthy Richmond-area businessman who sought special treatment from state government.

Authorities alleged that McDonnell and his wife received gifts from executive Jonnie R. Williams again and again, lodging near constant requests for money, clothes, trips, golf accessories and private plane rides.

In exchange, authorities alleged that the McDonnells worked in concert to lend the prestige of the governorship to Williams’s struggling company, a small former cigarette manufacturer that now sells dietary supplements.

The two were charged with 14 felony counts, including wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, obtaining property under color of their official office and conspiring to the do the same.

They were also charged with making false statements to a federal credit union.

McDonnell was also charged with making a false statement to a financial institution, and Maureen McDonnell was charged with obstructing the investigation.
