Seems like NObama was too cozy with many of the people running the failed institutions. Look at his campaign staff and contributions from failed Fannie/Freddy.

"In the next 47 days you can fire the whole trickle-down, on-your-own, look-the-other way crowd in Washington who has led us down this disastrous path."

Well Mr. NObama, YOU are part of that crowd, and your record and associations (i.e. Jim I cooked the books" Johnson) prove it. I hope the voters fire YOU!!!!

You don't think McCain has any friends apparently. And Johnson doesn't work for Obama anymore. But I think McCain has filled his camp with lots of shady figures. Check them out sometime. Perhaps you should google "McCain ties to Fannie and Freddie" and see what comes up too. Revealing. And it certainly says a lot about BOTH sides.

A job he got from Mr. Ayers, an unrepentant bomber, terrorist, and associated with the weather underground. The money he got from Ayers and spread around (ca.$50,000,000) went to people like his Pastor Rev. Wright. After close ties for 20 years he don't want to talk about Ayers or Wright anymore, why is that???

Law degree,professor of Constitutional Law!

Nope, lectured NEVER a Professor. How did he get into Harvard law with B- grades at Columbia? Well, a rich Saudi, contacted people with some pull at harvard (google that one too....)

Representative!

Where his primary patron was Tony Rezko, besides shady real estate deals Rezko also got taxpayer dollars funneled by NObama to "refurbish" neighborhoods, the result being some of the worst of the chicago slums.

U.S. Senator for eight years!

To much Kool-aid tonight or can't do math? He was elected 11, 2, 2004 , a senator for a little more than 3 years (e.g. sworn in Jan 2005)

Many battles for the American people,not Corporate America!

Besides making the top three in tainted cash from Failed Fannie Mae:

Barack Obama:
Goldman Sachs $421,763 Ubs Ag $296,670 Lehman Brothers $250,630 National Amusements Inc $245,843 JP Morgan Chase & Co $243,848 Sidley Austin LLP $226,491 Citigroup Inc $221,578 Exelon Corp $221,517 Skadden, Arps Et Al $196,420 Jones Day $181,996 Harvard University $172,324 Citadel Investment Group $171,798 Time Warner $155,383 Morgan Stanley $155,196 Google Inc $152,802 University of California $143,029 Jenner & Block $136,565 Kirkland & Ellis $134,738 Wilmerhale Llp $119,245 Credit Suisse Group $118,250

Against the war in Iraq,before there was a war in Iraq!

O.K., I'll give you that one

Supports sending far more troops to Afghanistan where the war on terror belongs!

Maybe he can get Pakistan involved and get to play with some nukes!!!

The Man has done many important things!

Name one, just one????

If you truly wanted to know you can go to google and find out!

Goggle up: obama/chicago/slum, obama/jim johnson, obama/fannie mae, obama/ayers, obama/rezko/real estate, obama/saudi/harvard, obama/2nd amendment/gun control, obama/communist/mentor........ ..thats a good idea, great sites I found!!!

Johnson left because they (NObama) saw the storm coming.

Besides "cooking the books" at fannie Mae he went on to get bogus sub-prime loans from other institutions, institutions the American taxpayer (e.g. our grandchildern will be settled with debt from.) will have to bail out.

NObama wants buddy Jim to keep his $114,000, a MONTH bonus, despite of it only being a result of fixing the books to show false profits. This is going to make the war on terror look like buying a car compared to buying a Palace.

And NObama is up to his Dumbo ears in it!!!!

McCain didn't seem to have a problem with Carly Fiorina's golden parachute. She has a comfy spot right in McCain's camp. She got a nice $45million even as HP was laying off left and right. Must be nice.

That's only ONE of McCain's close buddies with a shady side. Lest we forget that John McCain was one of the Keating 5. Corruption. Finny how they just got a slap on the wrist and won re-election. The Keating 5. Let's google that one and see what comes up.
Doesn't take much to dig up more. Shall I continue or do you want to have a lesson on Charlie Black, Phil Gramm (fmr senior ECONOMIC advisor and campaign co chair) whose legislation to prevent regulation got us where we are. Or maybe you might know him better by his ties to Enron ('The Enron Loophole') and yet he is STILL with the McCain camp! Even after he called the nation a bunch of whiners. Nice. Here's just a snippet of how Phil Gramm helped us with our crisis:
FROM WIKIPEDIA
"Banking Deregulation and the 2008 Mortgage Crisis
Later in his Senate career.

Gramm spearheaded efforts to pass banking reform laws, including the landmark Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act in 1999, which served to reduce government regulations in existence since the Great Depression separating banking, insurance and brokerage activities.

Years later, critics of Gramm point out that this same legislation may have been pivotal in encouraging the corporate practices that led to the 2008 mortgage crises in America. Others claim this assertion is nonsense and that Gramm's reforms were one of the saving graces that helped keep the crises from being much worse."

I can feel the breeze from here, save your breath.

I'm not voting Mc-Demlite and would take Satan/Charlie Manson over NObama/Biden (or any combinations with Hildebeast)

Ron Paul, dig some dirt up on him connected with this fiasco.

He tried to prevent it years ago but alphabet news was told to ignore him by their corporate owners (the same ones that control the Berk Buzzard....)

I like Ron Paul too but I wont give the republicans the pleasure of having my vote look like a vote for them.

I can't vote for Ron Paul....it would be like handing the presidency to the McCain crooks.

I do think they should do third party debates. It's only fair. Many people like Ron Paul and agree with his views.

It's Obama for me this time around. Let's see what they do with it.
