Democrats hate the competition.

I was in Chicago last winter and it was cold.

In fact, it was so cold I saw a democrat politician with his hands in his own pockets.

Why could Zero possibly be upset? They were just redistributing his wealth.

“organizer of a financial crime enterprise”

OH, in other words, a “COMMUNITY ORGANIZER”?
Wonder what will happen if he turns state’s evidence?;)

And now for the rest of the story... They were/are actually a couple of Zero’s best students in the class he’s teaching on the side, Thieving 101, going for a little extra credit.

What’s the problem? They didn’t start it. Besides, turnabout is fair play, right?

For all we know, this was a set up; yet another way for Obama to redistribute the taxpayers’ money and have some of it funneled back to himself. :)

Redistributing the wealth is fine. Pre-redistributing the wealth is a horrible horrible crime. How can Obama get credit for it if the money never went through his hands?

Go to jail, live there for free, eat their food for free, and then come back after you get out and we will have a nice community organizing position ready for you. We'll have some nice grants or something.

A very large percentage of Dems want Obama to take/steal money from other people i.e producers and give it to them. Why should they care if someone steals their money? They should heartedly approve.
