Warren is a former classmate of the big rodent and will act as his advisor. I can see where that is going.

ARAB AMERICAN ACTION NETWORK
The directors of the WOOD'S FUND, including Obama and Ayers, provided a $40,000 grant to the Arab American Action Network, or AAAN.

The co-founder of the AAAN, Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi, was a director of the offical PLO press agency WAFA in Beirut from 1976 to 1982, while it was involved in anti-western terrorism and was labeled by the State Department as a terror group. He also has held a fundraiser for Obama.

Khalidi's wife, Mona, serves as president. The fund provided a second grant to the AAAN for $35,000 in 2002.

The $40,000 grant from Obaam's Woods Fund to the AAAN constituted about a fifth of the Arab group's reported grants for 2001, according to tax fillings obtained by the WND. The $35,000 Woods Fund grant in 2002 also constituted about one fifth of AAAN's reported grants for the year.........

Obama and Bill Ayers tied together again..........

OBAMA, THE MAN WHO KEEPS SAYING HE IS NOT MUSLIM, BUT HAS BACKED THEIR PROGRAMS FOR MANY YEARS.

“No respect.”

I’m with Simon Johnson here: how is it possible, at this late date, for Obama to be this clueless?
Obama sought to combat perceptions that his administration is anti-business and trumpeted the influence corporate leaders have had on his economic policies. He plans to reiterate that message when he speaks to the Business Roundtable, which represents the heads of many of the biggest U.S. companies, on Feb. 24 in Washington.
Oh. My. God.
First of all, to my knowledge, irresponsible behavior by baseball players hasn’t brought the world economy to the brink of collapse and cost millions of innocent Americans their jobs and/or houses.
And more specifically, not only has the financial industry has been bailed out with taxpayer commitments; it continues to rely on a taxpayer backstop for its stability. Don’t take it from me, take it from the rating agencies:
The planned overhaul of US financial rules prompted Standard &&# 8201;Poor’s to warn on Tuesday it might downgrade the credit ratings of Citigroup and Bank of America on concerns that the shake-up would make it less likely that the banks would be bailed out by US taxpayers if they ran into trouble again.
The point is that these bank executives are not free agents who are earning big bucks in fair competition; they run companies that are essentially wards of the state. There’s good reason to feel outraged at the growing appearance that we’re running a system of lemon socialism, in which losses are public but gains are private. And at the very least, you would think that Obama would understand the importance of acknowledging public anger over what’s happening.
But no. If the Bloomberg story is to be believed, Obama thinks his key to electoral success is to trumpet “the influence corporate leaders have had on his economic policies.”
We’re doomed.

You talk way too much. Makes it vey difficult to listen.

I have a suggestion for you. If you have something to say, engage in an actual two-way conversation during which people of differing viewpoints can express themselves. That way, not only will you better get your points across, but it will also make it seem like you actually care about listening to what someone else has to say.
