CFO Timothy Howard to become vice chairman
RISMEDIA, Jan. 10-Fannie Mae has announced that Vice Chair Jamie Gorelick has advised the company she will step down on July 1, 2003, to devote substantial time to the bipartisan national commission investigating the attacks of September 11, 2001 and to pursue other interests. The company also announced that its Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Timothy Howard, will succeed Gorelick as vice chair, and will be nominated to be elected to the Board of Directors at the annual meeting in May.

“Jamie Gorelick’s leadership is a big reason why Fannie Mae is a great company that achieves its mission of bringing the American Dream to all Americans,” said Fannie Mae’s Chairman and CEO Franklin D. Raines. “Jamie’s unwavering focus on our corporate responsibility has made Fannie Mae the market leader in serving minority and lower-income families, a model corporate citizen, and one of America’s best places to work.”

“All of us at Fannie Mae are extremely proud of Jamie’s commitment and service to the company and her devotion to the American Dream business,” Raines said. “But we are also proud of her lifelong devotion to public service and her commitment, and the unique contributions she will make, to helping our nation understand and learn from the events that led to the searing tragedy of September 11th. We appreciate her dedication to the company and to our nation, and we will deeply miss her presence at Fannie Mae.”

Gorelick joined the company in May 1997 as vice chair. As a member of the Office of the Chairman, she has shared responsibility for the overall management of the company, directed its efforts to reach underserved markets and has overseen Fannie Mae’s external relationships, legal and regulatory affairs.

“This has been an extremely hard decision for me because I am so proud of the role that our company plays in the housing finance system,” Gorelick said. “However, I was very honored to have been asked to serve on the bipartisan national commission that will investigate the prelude to the attacks that occurred on September 11th.?

Prior to joining Fannie Mae, she was Deputy Attorney General of the United States, a position she assumed in March 1994. From May 1993 until she joined the Justice Department, Gorelick served as General Counsel of the Department of Defense, and from 1979 to 1980, she was Assistant to the Secretary and Counselor to the Deputy Secretary of Energy.

No offense intended, but the video comes across as teleprompter reading practice. I punched out after a couple of minutes.

I do use scrolls a lot in my video and at times I know the speed is a little fast.

I try to use quotes from articles that show irrefutable evidence.

Youtube is filled with liberals, 9/11 truthers and Ron Paul Cult nut-bags.

Its dreadful. If they have a point they need to make it. First visual, right up front.

Second, I sort of fast forwarded and it started going on about 9/11. WTF? I thought it was about Obama, his friends and Fannie Mae.

Take this mess down now! It is a loser.

“WTF? I thought it was about Obama, his friends and Fannie Mae.”

Sorry but you didn't read that Jim Johnson, Jamie Gorelick and Franklin Raines are all on the list to be in the Obama administration?

Did you read that Acorn received multiple grants from the Fannie Mae Foundation?

Our country is going bankrupt do to legislation that forces lenders to give loans to people that cant pay back.

The Democrats are in deep with this scandal.

Please read post #2 to understand the departure of Jamie Gorelick from Fannie Mae then look at post #7 to see what she received for a bonus.

The Democrats had a lot to protect and I would be concerned about Gorelick being in a position to make President Bush look bad during the 9/11 hearing.

Jamie Gorelick is a treasonous pig with lipstick.

Don't argue with me. I am telling you that whatever point you are trying to make is lost in the poor presentation.

If you can't get through to me, who am sympathetic, how are you going to get through to someone who doesn't even want to try to listen. I tried. I just don't get what this mess is about.

Sometimes when making a video the point is for people to formulate their own thoughts.

I like to think my videos are made for thinkers and not people that want to be entertained.

I found that people don't learn anything when all the dots are connected for them.

There are a lot of troops in Iraq waiting for the respect they deserve because part of our country remains stupid and cant figure out that Jamie Gorelick was an obstacle as a 9/11 Commissioner rather than seeking actual resolution.

If you tell me your a fan of Ron Paul I'm not going to waste my time.

People should be up front and honest when they are posting at Free Republic if they are a member of the Ron Paul Cult.

Their Confirmation bias explains everything.

What does all of that have to do with the title of this video about Obama's connections to Fannie Mae?

If you want to make a video entitled "How Jamie Gorelick dishoners our service men and women" make it. I have no problem. But for a short video, you need to pick a theme and stay on message, and not wander all over all the evils of Democrats since the beginning of time.

When I get Home I am going to repost the video with a slower scroll so you can read the parts you seem to be missing.

The moderator has helped me change my URL link to a new Youtube video link with a slower scroll provided that is easy to read.

Ron Paul Cult may still have problems understanding the material.

If your not capable of understanding my video here is another one from Fox News.

You will just have to use your imagination on how corrupt Jamie Gorelick was moving from Fannie Mae to the 9/11 Commission.

http://elections.foxnews.com/2008/09/22/hard-hitting-mccain-ad-links-obama-to-chicago-political-machine/

“The first ad to hit Obama for would-be shady associations came out last week. It tied the Illinois senator to former Fannie Mae executives Franklin Raines and Jim Johnson.”
