<quoted text>Seriously?

February 4th, 2010

President Barack Obama says the federal government is wasting money by paying banks to offer student loans, and wants to cut out what he calls "middlemen" who cost taxpayers billions, and to use the savings to expand other financial aid programs.

"It turns out that right now a lot of the student loan programs are still run through financial institutions and banks. So you got this middleman, and they get billions of dollars per year managing loans that are guaranteed by the federal government," Obama said at a New Hampshire event Tuesday. Obama said those middlemen "are essentially taking no risks, and yet they're still extracting these huge profits."

Poor teabagger.
During the recent campaign, President Obama claimed credit for increasing funding to the Pell Grant program, which provides college funds, free from repayment, to millions of students. However, an email sent out Tuesday to some Dallas college students is revealing a detail the President forgot to mention: the time a student can receive a Pell Grant has been cut, by as much as three years. With Pell Grants for the fall semester now dispersed, colleges are informing students of their options, bringing the cuts to light.

The email, sent out by the Dallas County Community College District, informed students of the changes to the Pell Grant program. It revealed that the number of semesters a student could receive a Pell Grant had been cut from 18 semesters down to 12. It is a detail likely unknown to most students; in fact, the cut in grants has gone largely unreported by the media.

The email states that the cut in eligibility was part of an education bill President Obama signed into law in 2011. "On December 23, 2011, President Obama signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012 (Public Law 112-74). This new federal law states that the amount of Federal Pell Grant funds a student may receive over his or her LIFETIME will be reduced to the duration of a student's eligibility from 18 semesters (or its equivalent) to 12 semesters (or its equivalent). This new law applies to ALL Federal Pell Grant eligible students effective with the 2012-2013 award year beginning July 1, 2012.

<quoted text>REPORT: NY Dem Sen caught on FBI wiretaps attempt at bribing GOP bosses...
Malcolm Smith is a Democratic state senator who is accused of bribing a city councilman, two county Republican leaders and two Rockland County officials in order to get on the ballot as a Republican and run for mayor in 2013.

Dan Halloran is a Republican city councilman who is accused of working as a "quarterback" in state Sen. Malcolm Smith's bribery scheme, identifying officials who would be open to bribes and arranging meetings with them, prosecutors said.

Halloran, 42, arranged for an undercover FBI agent who was posing as a real estate developer to meet with two Republican county leaders to bribe the county leaders for their support of Smith's mayoral campaign, authorities said.

Vincent Tabone is vice chairman of the Queens County Republican Party. He is accused of taking a $25,000 bribe in return for supporting Democratic state Sen. Malcolm Smith's bid to run for mayor as a Republican.

Joseph Savino is chairman of the Bronx County Republican Party. He is accused of taking a $15,000 cash bribe in return for supporting Democratic state Sen. Malcolm Smith's bid to run for mayor as a Republican.

An undercover FBI agent posed as a corrupt real estate developer as part of the federal government's investigation into the alleged bribery scheme.

The FBI agent provided cash that was used to bribe Republican county leaders Joseph Savino and Vincent Tabone in return for their support of Democratic state Sen. Malcolm Smith's attempt to run for mayor on the Republican line, authorities said.

John Catsimatidis, the wealthy founder of the Gristedes grocery chain, is running for mayor as a Republican.

His aide, Vincent Tabone, was arrested Tuesday and was accused of accepting cash bribes in return for helping Democratic state Sen. Malcolm Smith run for mayor as a Republican.

All these teabaggers were awful accommodating.

The teabagger "flavor of the month" said “Now, as soon as I’m done speaking, I’ll tell you what the criticism on the Left is gonna be. Number one, that he drank too much water,” Rubio said to laughter.“Number two, that he didn’t offer new ideas, and there’s the fallacy of it. We don’t a new idea. There is an idea. The idea is called America, and it still works.”

Rubio not only called for attacking Iran, but also advocated a military assault on Syria.

Speaking of Iran, Rubio stated,“We should also be preparing our allies, and the world, for the reality that unfortunately, if all else fails, preventing a nuclear Iran may, tragically, require a military solution.”

He also said that Syria should become a target for “American leadership,” in the context of ignoring UN mandates and sending in American troops to directly help rebel fighters who, as we have documented, are being directed by Al-Qaeda terrorists.

Same old, old gaurd republican, neocon and now teabagger theme.
I bet it sucks being a democrat. Knowing YOU helped vote this man into office. WOW, dems are shallow baby killers who think everyone owes them something and can't do anything but whine, cry and point fingers.

Teabagger talking heads in meltdown.

Bill O'Reilly exploded at conservative radio host Laura Ingraham Tuesday over her criticism of his argument that gay marriage advocates have a "more compelling" case than gay marriage opponents. O'Reilly claimed last week that opponents simply "thump the Bible" and the biblical argument wasn't strong enough against reasonable logic that gay Americans just want to be treated like everyone else.

The argument began when Ingraham told the Fox News host that she felt there was a feud between O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh over the issue. She added that she didn't believe O'Reilly needed to make his comment about "Bible thump."

"There's no feud between me and Limbaugh," he responded. "I don't talk to Limbaugh."
