Yes, Harv, I am sure your pitiful excuse for leaders are wasting additional billions on useless fantasies, but we need people who believe in those fantasies to pay for them not the taxpayer. When we change Administrations, and get qualified people in there instead of Affirmative Action failures they will figure out the alternative automobiles.
Another lame response from the Cat Ladee, flavored with a little race-baiting and the usual foolishness.

Way to go! Keep the streak alive, Ladee...:)

The Arab-American network behind Obama
September 19, 2012 | 11:54 pm | Modified: September 20, 2012 at 12:00 am

IS IT ANY WONDER OBAMA IS SO PRO-ARAB AND MUSLIM………..HE OWES THEM MUCH.

Ray Hanania, a Chicago-based Arab-American journalist and activist, described the network in a 2007 interview with Chicago magazine as "a small cluster of activists." Chief among them was Obama mentor Tony Rezko, above. Stuart Levine, right, Rezko's former partner and the government's star witness in the Rezko trial, testified that Obama met Nadhmi Auchi at a private Rezko reception held at Chicago's Four Seasons hotel.
President Obama's controversial relationships with radical figures like Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi have been well-publicized in recent years.

Prior to his academic career in the United States, Khalidi worked for Yasser Arafat's Palestine Liberation Organization when it was classified by the State Department as a terrorist group.
Less well-known is a cluster of Chicago businessmen who formed an Arab-American network at the heart of Obama's political apparatus. Ray Hanania, a Chicago-based Arab-American journalist and activist, described the network in a 2007 interview with Chicago magazine as "a small cluster of activists" in the business community who were politically involved.

Chief among them was Obama mentor Tony Rezko. Born in Aleppo, Syria, home of strongman Bashar al-Assad, Rezko migrated to the U.S. in the late 1970s and built a political and financial empire in Chicago and Springfield, the Illinois capital.
Rezko is now serving a 10-year federal prison sentence following his convictions on federal fraud and bribery charges related to disgraced Gov. Rod Blagojevich and state contracting.

Rezko offered Obama a job at his Rezmar Corp. after he finished at Harvard Law School, but the new lawyer instead accepted a position at a Chicago firm with close personal and professional ties to Rezko. Their relationship steadily deepened in the years thereafter.

Rezko and his Arab-American business associates have contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to Obama's political campaigns. Following Rezko's conviction, though, Obama donated to charity at least $85,000 in Rezko contributions to his 2008 presidential campaign.
The Chicago Sun-Times estimated Obama received at least "$168,308 from Rezko and his circle," while ABC News put the total to be as much as $100,000 higher than the amount claimed by Obama.

While he was in the Illinois Senate, Obama helped key Rezko associates gain appointments to the state board that controlled health facility contracting for building expansions.
Once his associates were appointed, Rezko sought kickbacks from contractors favored by his friends in a process that became the heart of the federal case against him.

When Obama became chairman of the state Senate health committee that oversaw appointments to the medical board, among his first acts was to gain fast-track passage of a bill to reduce the board from 15 to nine members, thus making it somewhat easier to gain the panel's approval for contracts.
Rezko then used his connections with Blagojevich to stack the restructured board with his political cronies. Their appointments were confirmed by Obama's committee, then sent to the Senate floor.
Soon thereafter, contributions from Rezko and his health board allies began pouring into Obama's campaign coffers, according to federal and state campaign finance data.
Rezko associate Dr. Michel Malek, for example, donated $15,000 to Obama after gaining appointment to the health board.
Dr. Imad Almanaseer, another Rezko ally appointed to the health board, initially gave Obama $3,000. Over the next three years, he and members of his family donated nearly $10,000 more to Obama.

Is it any wonder you can't deal with the topic and continue to post offtopic spam and cut n' pastes? I mean, it's not like you can think and reason for yourself, or honestly debate a subject.

That's what happens when you work in an 19th century industry in the 21st century.

Should we also worry about all the buggy makers who are out of work because of the darned horseless carriages......

As Carney Says 'Terrorist Attack,' Obama Still Cites Anti-Islam Film, they hadn’t changed Obama’s teleprompter yet.

Romney: Obama's New Slogan 'No, I Can't'...OBAMA: YOU CAN’T FIX WASHINGTON FROM THE INSIDE……………Obama hasn’t learned yet, you can’t bribe your way to all your goals……………….Chicago Style.
