yeah, how interestin’.

Was thinking about this bailout, who’s to blame. Seems like the usual suspects, although the Republicans aren’t really standing up to prevent it.

Thanks for digging.

Interesting that Christopher “Country Wide Savings” Dodd is at the head of the list. Of course this story to be ignored by the msm. They tried their best to bury the Edwards story.

It doesn’t look too good for either party. There’s nothing to be proud of here since to my thinking both parties were culpable in this mess. It’s just that the top 5 happen to be dems. Praise be for that at least.

Well, I was kind enough to bring this to the attention of CNN and MSNBC, along with a note that if they could tear themselves away for "Sarah Palin's Penecostal Roots" long enough, they MIGHT want to investigate a newsworthy story.

Granted, I know it was wasted keystrokes, but it did feel good to throw a jab for once.

Yeah, those totals are for 1989 - 2008, meaning Dodd and Kerry had a LOT more tenure (re: opportunity) to obtain campaign funds. Obama surpassed Hillary by $30,000, and fast!!!!!

There may not be enough time for CNN and MSNBC to report the fact that the Agent of Change raked in over $100,000 from Fannie and Fred. I did learn, however, that Sarah wrote Bilical passages in her yearbook messages. STOP THE PRESSES!

And Senator Obama is certainly, um, "gifted" - gifted to the tune of $105,000.

But, but, but Senator Dodd said these are viable and strong institutions just 60 days ago.

http://www.marketwatch.com/news/story/sen-dodd-calls-fannie-freddie/story.aspx?guid=%7B6D500286-5BDC-433B-A2EF-A9B3CE520ADE%7D&dist=hpts

"This is not a time to be panicking about this. These are viable, strong institutions," Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., said at a Capitol Hill press conference.

"The economics are fine in these institutions and people need to know that," Dodd said. There's no reason "to talk about failure," he added.

The entire Board of Trusties of both companies should be arrested and their assets seized for defrauding the tax payers of America. Have you even look to see who is on the board. Its shocking to say the very least.

Bush a fiscal conservative??? LOL! Try a fiscal socialist.

To the tune of $797,000 according to the WSJ.

So, not only is Obama one of the top recipients of Freddie/Fannie, but so is ACORN, where he so proudly "served" as a Community Activist... Nothing to see here.

Not only did Snobami receive a lot of money from fannie and freddie, so did Acorn, the fund raising group that hates America and honest voting.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB121728651034091275.html?mod=googlenews_wsj

Most of this foundation money goes to charity groups uninvolved in politics and policy. But tens of millions of dollars find their way to policy advocacy groups on the left and even some on the right. (See nearby table.) Affiliates of Acorn, the left-wing activist group, have received multiple $100,000 grants for their “housing” activities.

Jesse Jackson’s Citizenship Education Fund, an offshoot of his Rainbow/PUSH Coalition, has received more than $500,000 from Fannie and Freddie since 1996. A decade ago Mr. Jackson accused Fannie and Freddie of discriminatory lending practices. Those charges of racism went away once the grant money started flowing. Groups on the left complain about “corporate welfare” all the time, but curiously nary a one has opposed the Fannie and Freddie bailout — which amounts to one of the biggest corporate welfare gifts in U.S. history.
