President Obama raised over 750 million dollars during his 2008 campaign; this time he could exceed 1 billion dollars… and that will be the fuel that drives all the effort to be a superior force to whatever anemic right-wing challenger that is crapped out from the tea-baggers republican primaries to be slaughter in the 2012 General Election.

I gave my $100 on the day he announced his re-election website, and was smiling as I did it.

I was listening to the news this morning while getting ready for work. And they were syaing that at this fund raiser last night major execs from JP Morgan, Chase, and Goldman Sachs refused to come to the $35k/plate dinner-fund raiser.

Their reasoning for not coming was they are tired of being blamed for the financial crisis. When I heard this I was laughing. Of course their blamed, they caused it!

These bankers pushed people to invest in the mortgage backed securities that were going to fail while on the other side banking on them failing. So when the run on the money market accounts (tied to the mortgage backed securities) on 15 Sept 2008 for $587B, these same bankers made moeny coming and and when it crashed.

Then these bankers went to Congress and threatened a depression if they did not get bailed out to cover their bad assets (bad assets they created int he first place). When TARP did not work they came back again for more money and got $787B in a stimulus to be able to provide loans.

Here is the thing. The US government borrowed all of that money at interest to give to the banks to loan to us at interest. Your money, my money, our money was taken from us, given to the banks so the banks could loan back to us and charge us interest.

It was your fault damnit.

Funny how it’s always the homophobic right-wing tea-baggers that are quick to put a homosexual remark in their comments… I guess it hard to keep those feelings of being attracted to the same sex suppressed when you see so many men that post on here.

Again you look like an ass in assuming. My comment was in regards on everything that this guy "Obama" does you are right there, accepting it, praising it, worshipping it. It is like you are constantly blowing this guy and in what I fear is a love infatuation. Its like the way the wives of Charlie Manson worshipped him. Not strength to stand on their own 2 feet and stand up for themselves.

You assume that I am hobophobic. At one point in my life I was. I can admit that. However, when your stationed in key West for a couple years you learn to build tolerance and acceptence.

So again you look like an asshole in assuming something you know nothing about. And BTW, stop worshipping this guy. You think he is actually doing good when all he is doing is continuing and expanding Bush's policies. God your an idiot.

It makes me question whether your a government stooge or just a troll. Your weak. You do not have enough strength to stand up for yourself. How can I make this assumption you? By reading your posts and your worship of a man who has to wipe his ass like the rest of us.

Why do you blame only the lenders? Clinton and Janet Reno FORCED mortgage lenders to loan to people who were unqualified, knowing perfectly well that they would at some later date they would default. Knowing this they bundled a bunch of this bad paper together and sold it to BIG LENDER who called this a mortgage backed security. This gave rise to all of the other dubious things called derivatives, but the bottom line was that they knew Fannie and Freddie would pay off on it all. So, all in all, since the lenders were forced into this why is it all their fault? Why should they take all the blame? The blame lies at the feet of Clinton and Reno. And also remember back in 2003 that Bush tried to get a grip on this coming debacle but the smartest people in the room, Dodd, Frank,Boxer and others said STFU Bush, everything is fine. Bush tried twice to get this practice stopped but to no avail. The housing boom was on. People flipping properties faster than pancakes at Pancake House. Everyone making money hand over fist. Until the bubble burst. And here we are, blaming people who didn't cause the problem but did figure out a way to profit from a government failure.

Its a ponzi scheme that starts at the highest levels. I blame the Fed, the government, and these mega banks.

The derivative markets were established by Ken Ley of Enron, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and Alan Greenspan. After they established the derivative markets, Clinton got Glass-Steagel repealed which opened the flood gates.

These mega international banks are really at fault here because they pushed people into these market backed securities knowing that they will crash. During the housing bubble and prices of homes continually increasing, the average salary of a worker did not. They were basically flat lined. This would only lead to a crash. Knowing this, they still pushed people into these securities. While pushing them into the securties these banks were banking ona collapse so they would make money going up and going back down.

After the collapse, these same international bankers went to Congress and threatened Congress that if they do not get bailed out there would be a depression. Well, in my book, that is financial terrorism.

So the government 9the Bush administration and the Congress) gave in and borrowed the TARP funds from the Federal Reserve at interest. Gave it to the banks to cover the bad assets. When that failed, these same bankers came back for round 2. Got even more money (borrowed from the Federal Reserve with interest) in order to loan to the American people at interest.

So first, the Fed and the government are responsible for establishing the bubble and creating this atmosphere int he first place. Then the banks (lenders) are responsible for pushing people into bad investments when they were betting against the very markets they were pushing them into.

And who wins in this? Not the American people, but the Federal Reserve who is getting paid interest on the loans for the bail outs. Then they consolidate. They will begin to take public works and seize those under the guise of "privatization". We the people get screwed and ripped off.

Contradiction-hypocrite… you charge that I’m doing a lot of assuming; and then you go on to assume about me. Reading comprehension is vital if you want to keep up.
I was merely pointing out that for someone who agrees politically with a group of people that are known for their anti-homosexual stand on many issues, your side sure does inject a lot of gay innuendos and references when they make their asinine comments. You just kept that obvious trend going when you made the statement “Smiling or wiping the sperm from your lips?”

Yeah, assumption was a bad word. More like analysis based on your writings. You are the one who praises, worships and are infatuated with the president. Read your own words. You say it, not me.

Also, I am a political atheist, I could care less about the parties. The constitution is all that matters. And your love infatuation has trashed it and continued and expanded all of Bush's policies.

But you just sit there and keep spewing the DNC talking points and worshipping your god. Again, read your own posts.

On a side note, how is one to tell if you are a male, female, or ITS PAT from SNL? You brought up homophobia, not me.

HIS TELEPROMPTER WASN'T ON..........OOPS

The White House sought to correct the record after the president mistakenly claimed Thursday that a Medal of Honor recipient who died in Afghanistan was still alive.

The president made the error while speaking to troops from the 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum, N.Y. A day after announcing his plan for withdrawing surge troops from Afghanistan, Obama praised the division for their service during two concurrent wars.

Just goes to show how lackadaisical and slapdash his presidency is. One would think that before making a speech he would at least proof read it or know what was in it.

Wow, playing party politics much? Sarah Palin? Really? Come on..........

This is the same preson who tried to tell independents and third party supporters that they could no longer sit on the fence and they had to pick either Democrat or Republican.

Yes that right. She said this during a Tea Party rally in TX. You cannot make a decision for yourself. You have to pick either democrat or republican and keep yourself arguing between the duopoly they created for themselves. You cannot be an independent.

And this is the person you want.

Wow.

There's not a dime's worth of difference between the parties. Both serve their corp[orate masters well at the expense of the rest of us. I voted for a Democrat in '08 and got a Bushevik clone. They got me once but it won't happen again. Obama has broken just about all of his campaign promises and is basically rethug lite!
