2004 Video: Democrats Defend Fannie/Freddie from Regulation:

Inside Obamas Acorn: By their fruits ye shall know them
Stanley Kurtz, May 29, 2008
"What if Barack Obamas most important radical connection has been hiding in plain sight all along? Obama has had an intimate and long-term association with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (Acorn), the largest radical group in America. If I told you Obama had close ties with MoveOn.org or Code Pink, youd know what I was talking about. Acorn is at least as radical as these better-known groups, arguably more so. Yet because Acorn works locally, in carefully selected urban areas, its national profile is lower. Acorn likes it that way. And so, Id wager, does Barack Obama."
Good post with links, ping for later
Bookmarked. Just like another one of your lists.
Thanks for all the hard work.
I can’t finish my work in the Timeline Project without linking to here. Good job! And your profile is awssome too for in-depth. — FRegards ....

According to FoxNews, McCain will talk about Obama’s role in our economic woes.
It's starting to look that way...
This will be interesting but I'm sure they will have comebacks.
Why have the repubs been tepid in their response to the financial crisis? My guess is this: the sub-prime “mortgage” fiasco is just the tip of the iceberg. We will soon find out that much more of the credit market is “toxic.” The repubs have done a lousy job of oversight of the securities industry. That’s probably why McCain called for Cox’s resignation early on. Other shoes are going to drop and both parties are culpable. The fear right now is for the “system.” Will we see new political parties spinning out of this financial debacle and election? I believe that possibility is very real.
It's time to go to Glenn Beck's studio and pick up the pitch forks.
Oh yes, the stock market is tanking. Anyone surprised?
