Full story: Fox News

Sept. 5, 2012: President Barack Obama shakes hands with Former President Bill Clinton during the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. You could see all the rhetorical sleights of hand, the magic of a delivery, the wit of the argument, the sarcastic sallies against the other side.

We all know Clinton would make a deal with the devil if it paid him well. He was China's best buddy for a while. He made tons of money for his charities after his presidency in covert deals. This 50 minute speech is no different.$$$$$$$$$

Yes, all the BS in the world from Clinton doesn't get the bills paid.

Still, this FALSE NARRATIVE that Obama inherited a bad economy when he was a prime mover in the economies woes of the US, has to be addressed.

A friend to Fannie Mae crooks Jim Johnson and Franklin Raines, a top receipient of Fannie/Freddie political contributions, a member of the MAJORITY PARTY on Congress chatged with oversight of the GSE's and, going back over a decade, an ACORN Lawyer pushing for unsecured home loans. Yes, Obama played a role in the meltdown AND the Republicans let him off the hook by saying he inherited a bad economy.

Reckless Endangerment---a book report

In which Fannie Mae and then imitators squander hundreds of billions, take a big cut, and shuck the losses onto the public.

The recent book “Reckless Endangerment”, by Gretchen Morgenson and Joshua Rosner, documents how Jim Johnson, head of Fannie Mae, profited from the gap between what private mortgage lenders had to pay for funds, and what the government-backed Fannie Mae had to pay. Fannie Mae, and Johnson, kept back about 1/3 of this government subsidy, passing only 2/3 of the subsidy on to borrowers in the form of lower interest rates. The 1/3 cut was then spread around. Some stuck to Johnson and the rest of the management team. A lot of it was spent on advertising. A lot was spent on charity, most of that very strategic. A lot was spent, ultimately, on campaign contributions in favor of friends and against enemies. And a lot of it was spent on lobbying. Some of it was even spent to simply take out campaign ads against a candidate Fannie didn’t like. This, be reminded, was federal tax money.

The dishonor roll is long and heavy with big names.

Jim Johnson, Rep. Barney Frank, Rep. Henry B. Gonzalez, Alan Greenspan, Joseph Stiglitz, Robert Rubin, Peter Orszag, Larry Summers. Phil Gramm, Jim Leach, Thomas Bililey, Dianne Feinstein, Bob Zoellick, Jim Moran, Walt Fauntroy, Sen. Kit Bond, Sen. Robert Bennett, Henry Cisneros, Angelo Mozilo
