Skip to comments.Democrats: There Is No Crisis at Fannie...Freddie (You gotta see this video)
Posted on 09/29/2008 2:45:34 PM PDT by Straight Vermonter
I just want to be serious for a second, friends. This is a DEVASTATING video. It is absolutely unacceptable that this video is not being played on every news station and at every Democrat interview around the country over and over again.
More Democrats denying there was an impending crisis at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac - this time, outright denied by Maxine Waters (D), the moron who threatened to socialize...er, nationalize the oil industry. And Barney Frank (D).
And more. So much more. Watch the whole thing, and send it to everyone you know. Link to it everywhere. Do it. Now. Point and laugh derisively.
Praising Franklin Raines. More Barney Frank. Democrats mad at the GOP for calling out these two corrupt companies...while denying there is a problem. Republicans calling for more regulations, oversight and accountability with Democrats blocking them, etc. All meat and potatoes here.
Nothing those who have been paying attention to people other than Barack Obama haven't seen, but note just how explicitly and exactly perfectly these clips crystallize the argument that this was a GOVERNMENT failure - and one party in particular's fault. Jackasses.

Agreed.....keep posting this video....make sure everyone sees it. No finger pointing required, the democrats condem themselves. People need to see this.
Rush played audio of this today. Every one of them should be tarred and feathered.
McCain needs to run this on CNN and MSNBC.
Every one of them should be tarred and feathered.
I think you are far too nice. They should be jailed after a very public trial and then sentenced to social security like the rest of us after they get out, if they live that long.
In 2004, Republicans held an oversight hearing on Freddie Mae and Fannie Mac. They warned us about this crisis back then, but Barney Frank, Maxine Waters, and other Democrats charged racism. Franklin Raines, the disgraced thief Democrat CEO of Fannie Mae, insisted the loans were "riskless."
if BARNEY FRANK, Palousie, Reid, Gorelick and all the elite who knew things were not kosher and were on the take don't take, er, gained from this farce are not frogmarched straight to the courtroom like ENRON people, then I have no hope whatsoever for this country. If people in charge remain the people in charge of F&F, God help us!
This needs to be ran as a TV ad all across the country for all to see that the ‘rats are responsible and ignored the warnings.
This ought to be run on every network and radio station in the country, over and over and over again.
Any ideas on how we can get these retards prosecuted????
How was the legislation proposed by Bush to regulate Fannie/Freddie blocked in 2003? The Republicans controlled all three branches of government? Rino’s? Who?
FOX news should be playing its own journalism over and over...
no 2/3s vote...the DEMs blocked it.
Once you’re there you can look at the White House News by date.
That is a GREAT video clip. Thank you for posting it.
Can someone tell me how to download the video to my computer so I can burn it to a DVD?
Are you sure a 2/3's vote is necessary?
Thanks for posting this, SV.
No photo of Baghdad Bob? ;)
bailout bump, dems on video
I heard clips on Rush’s radio show [assuming they’re the same]. Devastating. The rats keep stepping in it.
This is how we combat the Drive-bys. Videos like this need to be a Freeper Manhatten Project. We need to tell the stories that never make it on the news and email it to everyone.
First we need a database of video, then a way to search it and third a few creative people to put the story together.
How do we get started? Any ideas.
thanks for posting!
I think many of you have the right idea — self-reliance. Promoting you tube is like trying to protect a sand castle.
Many people fear email attachments, but that sounds like the easiest option. To reach those who fear email attachments, maybe web meister — Jeff Head — could offer technical pointers.
I imagine we could burn blank CDs too and work out a CD loaning program in our local areas.
Here’s another point — Governor Blunt of Missouri is doing important work right now. The litigation goons blocking free speech about the truth are conspiring against peoples’ civil rights. Any way people can back up the good governor would be great.
Blunt is the key to opening a doorway for 527s. We know what the Swiftboats for Truth achieved in 04.
We already had an ad running in Virginia about Unrepentent Terrorist Ayers. But the litigation goons shut us down. That’s the kind of thing Governor Blunt of Missouri is addressing.
You need 60 votes to be filibuster proof. When’s the last time the RNC had that?
Another wizard I had the pleasure of encountering is Papa Smurf. By the way, when I visit his village, he sometimes calls me Mudfoot Smurf. I don’t know why.
[Seriously, we’re trying to figure out how to have our own low cost grass roots ad campaign without relying on youtube.]
This is important — search engine positioning of an ad page is key to increasing visiters. So while you might be ‘preaching to the choir’, you will also attract others.
The bill McCain cosponsored passed in committee, all Republicans voting for, all Dems against. Was the threat of filibuster the reason it did not go to the full senate for a vote? Seems like from what I read the reason given was simply that there was not enough votes in the senate to pass it. I suspect that a few (or more) Rinos sided with the dems.
