If Bush Jr. was dumb then Obama is even dumber by continuing 90% of all Bush/Cheney failed policies.<quoted text>
I repeat, Dems and Repubs are dishonest,(they have no choice, beholden as they are to their "sponsors") and work tirelessly for "me, myself and I. But I still maintain that dems do have a thought now and then for the middle class and less fortunate, proof being the social legislation that they alone have pushed and through the years. Also, let's face it, and intellectually speaking, Repubs not in the same league as Dems. And Dem politicians are more interesting, bigger patrons of the arts. That's important to me, reveals an attractive side.
Obama, no help for College loans.
Obama, no help for homeowners.
Obama, no single payer health care.
Obama, no transparency.
Obama reneged on just about every promise, even Obamacare was a Republican health care plan WITH NOT ONE REPUBLICAN VOTING FOR IT.
Which means the Democrats are center right and the Republicans are far right.
Obama did not pick even ONE LIBERAL in his cabinet.
CCR Executive Director Vincent Warren Critical of Elena Kagan’s Nomination to the Supreme Court / http://tinyurl.com/2g3xh28
NEW YORK - May 10 - In response to President Barack Obama's nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the United States Supreme Court, Center for Constitutional Rights Executive Director Vincent Warren issued the following statement:
"When the president nominates a woman or man to sit for life on the highest court of the land, we must look seriously at the broadest and most long-term implications seating that person will have for our country. At the Center for Constitutional Rights, we have fought at the forefront to hold back presidential overreach and the dangerous growth of executive power, particularly as it concerns torture, detention, surveillance and racial profiling, areas where the government has flouted the law most blatantly over the last decade. I am sad to say that Solicitor General Elena Kagan's record indicates a troubling support for expanding presidential powers, something we must be vigilant about at this time. President Obama would appear to be seeking to appoint a Supreme Court Judge who will endorse his policies and appease conservatives. This is not the way to make a decision that will affect our nation for decades to come."
The Center for Constitutional Rights is dedicated to advancing and protecting the rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Founded in 1966 by attorneys who represented civil rights movements in the South, CCR is a non-profit legal and educational organization committed to the creative use of law as a positive force for social change.
FBI: 80% of Fraud Attributed To Insiders Not Homeowners
The increased reliance by both financial institutions and non-financial institution lenders on third party brokers has created opportunities for organized fraud groups, particularly where mortgage industry professionals are involved. Combating significant fraud in this area is a priority, because mortgage lending and the housing market have a significant overall effect on the nation's economy. All mortgage fraud programs were recently consolidated within the Financial Institution Fraud Unit, even where the targeted
lender is not a financial institution. This consolidation provides a more effective and efficient management over mortgage fraud investigations, the ability to identify and respond more rapidly to emerging mortgage fraud problems, and a better picture of the overall mortgage fraud problem./ http://www.lvamerica.com/USApdfs/FBI.pdf
