  • President Is Getting Poor Grades On Economy As Optimism Erodes

    "THE JOB IMPACT OF THE AMERICAN RECOVERY AND REINVESTMENT PLAN"
    - Christina Romer, Chair-Nominee, Council of Economic Advisors
    - Jared Bernstein, Office of the Vice-President-elect
    January 9, 2009.



    "I don’t believe it’s too late to change course, but it will be if we don’t take dramatic action as soon as possible. If nothing is done, this recession could linger for years. The unemployment rate could reach double digits. Our economy could fall $1 trillion short of its full capacity, which translates into more than $12,000 in lost income for a family of four...That is why I have moved quickly to work with my economic team and leaders of both parties on an American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan that will immediately jumpstart job creation and long-term growth.... I urge Congress to move as quickly as possible... it is altogether likely that things may get worse before they get better. But that is all the more reason for Congress to act without delay."
    ~ Barack Obama,
    warning how bad unemployment might get if his $787Billion spending bill is not immediately passed, even without anyone reading it. January 8, 2009

    You Are Who You Associate With:

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care about whom he intentionally chose to associate with in college just as long as they were, in his own words, "the more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist Professors and the structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets... we were resisting bourgeois society's stifling constraints."

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his friend and fellow partner on several Chicago community organization boards and in whose home he launched his political career, William Ayers, was an infamous and unrepentent radical leftwing terrorist who boasted about planting bombs and killing people in this country.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that the Chicago Community Organizing group that he chose to join was founded by self-avowed Communist-supporter Saul Alinsky (who actually dedicated his book, "Rules For Radicals" to Lucifer) and that he was mentored by one of Alinsky's students John L. McKnight who was also an unapologetic radical Socialist.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his colleague, supporter and personal friend, Rashid Khalidi, who was married to the President of the Arab American Action Network to which Obama helped funnel $40,000 from one of his Community groups, was also a long-time anti-Israeli and an ardent supporter of the PLO while working for the Palestinian news agency, Wafa.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that Raila Odinga, the Kenyan candidate for President that Obama was directly communicating with, that Obama had met with and whom Obama was directly supporting during Odinga's campaign had repeatedly stated that Odinga's goal for Kenya was create a "safe haven" for Islamic terrorists, that Odinga would institute radical Islamic Sharia Law, that Odinga had close financial ties to Mohammar Khadaffi and that Odinga had been responsible for the mass persecution, attacks and killings of Christians in Kenya.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his friend Tony Rezko who bailed Obama out of financial trouble and bought him a home was a such a corrupt slumlord that he was just convicted for years of committing extortion, fraud and money laundering.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that one of his vice-presidential search committee advisors, Jim Johnson was the former Chairman & CEO of Fannie Mae which, in a 2004 Federal Investigation, was found to have improperly deferred $200 million in expenses, substantially under-reported his own compensation to the tune of almost $20 million and who personally received below market-rate loans from Countrywide Financial because the corporation considered them to be "FOA's" - "Friends of Angelo" (Countrywide CEO Angelo Mozilo).

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his close friend, Frank Marshall Davis, whom he wrote about with such admiration in his book "Dreams Of My Father" was a radical member of the Communist Party USA, an ardent Stalinist and a outspoken supporter of the 60's Black-Power movement.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his own Church, Trinity United, was founded on the racist 'Black Liberation Theology" teachings of the 1960's radical Black-Supremacist James Cone who wrote and spoke extensively of his hatred of whites including: "If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him... Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy."

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his own pastor of over 20 years, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who conducted his marriage and children's baptisms and served as adivsor on his campaign had regularly spewed the most offensive, racist, white-hating, America-hating "sermons" in his very own Church and praised the likes of Louis Farrahkahn, Mohammar Khaddaffi and sympathized with Hamas.

    Gee, what a wonderful judge of character this guy is.

  • The Fannie/Freddie Talking Points Presentation

    10/09/2008 3:40:15 PM PDT · 7 of 8
    The_Macallan to bugseye

    Gee, nothing like striking while the iron is... cold. Where were the Reps with this two weeks ago!? A day late and a dollar short - more like two weeks late and $700 Billion dollars short.


    Fannie-Mae Talking Points:

    * Throughout the 1990s, the Clinton Adminstration and Democrat-controlled Congress pressured FannieMae to start offering more sub-prime loans to people with poor credit who couldn't normally afford or qualify for home loans (including many minorities). "Fannie Mae has agreed to buy more loans with very low down payments-or with mortgage payments that represent an unusually high percentage of a buyer's income. That's made banks willing to lend to lower-income families they once might have rejected."
    (Source: LA Times, 1999)

    * Warnings were raised as early as 1999 that this program could come back to devastate Fannie Mae.
    (Source: NYTimes, Sept. 1999)

    * Starting in 2001, President Bush has been publicly calling for Congressional reform of FannieMae/FreddieMac - including 17 times in 2008 alone.
    (Source: WhiteHouse, Sept 2008.)

    * In 2003, President Bush recommended a new agency to oversee FannieMae/Freddie Mac which was even then known to be broken. Democrats not only blocked this effort - they DENIED there was even a problem: ''These two entities -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- are not facing any kind of financial crisis,'' said Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts, the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee.
    (Source: NYTimes, Sept. 2003)

    * Barney Frank, who is openly gay, was actually involved in a long-time romantic relationship with a FannieMae executive Herb Moses for ten years throughout most of the 1990s. Frank had in the past been called upon to use his influence on the House Financial Services Committee to support FannieMae.
    (Source: Business & Media Institute)

    * In 2004, House Democrats continued to vehemently deny there were any problems with FannieMae/FreddieMac and viciously attacked those who suggested that they were heading into trouble and needing reform.
    (Source: Video of House Democrats)

    * In 2005, Republicans in Congress did create legislation to regulate and reform FannieMae/FreddieMac and to try to avert this coming disaster. John McCain supported and was a co-sponsor of that bill. McCain did what he could to stop this disaster years ago.
    (Source: Congressional Record)

    * Democrats in the Senate killed that Republican Bill to regulate and reform Fannie/Freddie right before the 2006 election. After that Democrats took control of the House and Senate in 2006, there were no more serious attempts made to avert the coming meltdown of FannieMae/FreddieMac by the Democrat-controlled Congress.

    * Since 2006, Barack Obama has received $125,000 in campaign contributions from FannieMae/FreddieMac employees and PACs - more per year than any other member of Congress.
    (Source: 1989-2008)

    * Obama is the second largest recipient of total campaign contributions from Fannie/Freddie PACs - fellow Democratic Senator Chris Dodd is #1. Dodd also oversees the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Development - and he made sure that no one did anything to address the long-standing problems with FannieMae.

    * In the 1990s, Jim Johnson was Chairman and CEO of FannieMae. In 2004, a Federal Investigation found that during Johnson's tenure, FannieMae had improperly deferred $200 million in expenses, over-reported its value and later found that FannieMae substantially under-reported Johnson's compensation to the tune of almost $20 million.

    * After Johnson's tenure, Franklin D. Raines was Fannie Mae Chairman/CEO until 2004 and he also supported these risky, sub-prime loan programs. In 2004, Raines was forced to take an "early retirement" from Fannie Mae while under investigation by the Securities & Exchange Commission and lawsuits over "accounting irregularities". Raines settled those lawsuits this year by paying millions in penalities.

    * Franklin Raines has been tapped as an economic advisor to Barack Obama's Presidential campaign and Jim Johnson worked on Barack Obama vice-presidential search committee.
    (Sources: Wash. Post July 2008, Wash. Post Aug 2008)


    BOTTOMLINE:
    - The FannieMae "subprime" problem began with the Clinton Administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress in the early 90s.
    - Warnings were sounded in the late '90s of a coming financial disaster.
    - President Bush tried repeatedly to fix this problem since 2001 - but Democrats denied the problem it even existed.
    - Republicans in Congress tried to fix this problem - but Democrats effectively blocked them.
    - Proposals for bipartisan solutions stopped when Democrats took control of Congress.
    - Democrats even viciously attacked people who tried to alert Congress of the growing FannieMae problem.
    - Democrats who are NOW claiming they can fix the problem (like Frank, Dodd, Obama, etc.) are the exact same ones who ignored the problem, who denied the problem, who are tained by FannieMae contributions and obvious conflicts of interest and who are still associated and entwined with failed and discredited FannieMae CEOs.
  • Now All Inconventient Facts About Obama Are 'False Rumors'

    10/09/2008 9:58:33 AM PDT · 22 of 34

    Obama Just Can't Get On The Right Side Of Any Issue.



    Barack Obama Was Wrong - The Surge Worked In Iraq:

    * US casulaties are down almost 80%, violence is down even more to the lowest levels since the war started and it's directly due to the troop surge that John McCain was among the first to support. The surge worked, Al Qaeda In Iraq is being neutralized and stability and cooperation is growing among Iraqis. Barack Obama was wrong to oppose the surge and was wrong when he said it wouldn't work and was wrong when he said that it would make the violence worse.

    And now, faced with the undeniable success of the surge, Obama has the audacity to simply distort the truth, in an interview aired the very night that John McCain accepted the Republican Presidential Nomination, saying that "nobody anticipated" the surge would succeed like it did. John McCain thought it would work, knew it would work and that's why he pushed for it from the very beginning.
    In Barack Obama's First Major Foreign Policy Decision As US Senator - He Voted Against The Surge And He Got It Completely Wrong.


    FannieMae former-CEO's Golden Parachutes Landed Them Right Into The Obama Campaign:

    * John McCain was right to co-sponsor a Senate Bill to reform FannieMae's recklessness back in 2005, to head off the coming subprime mortgage meltdown. That bill was blocked by Senate Democrats. The Chairman & CEO of FannieMae at the time, Franklin D. Raines, soon took an "early retirement" amid investigations by the SEC for "accounting irregularities" and was sued for his mismanagement of FannieMae, lawsuits which he just settled this year by paying out millions in penalites. Raines is now one of Barack Obama's economic advisors.

    And another former FannieMae Chairman & CEO, Jim Johnson, led Barack Obama's vice-presidential search committee. In 2004, a Federal Investigation found during Johnson's tenure, FannieMae had improperly deferred $200 million in expenses and later found that FannieMae substantially under-reported Johnson's compensation to the tune of almost $20 million. Coincidentially, Obama has received more campaign contributions from FannieMae employees than ALL other Senators except one, Senator Chris Dodd.
    We Need More Reform And More Accountibility With Less Favoritism And Less Conflict Of Interest.


    Allowing Born-Alive Babies To Die Is Not Part Of A Woman's Choice:

    * When asked by Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren "When does a baby get human rights", Barack Obama said glibly that it was "above my pay grade". How can a man who wants to be President Of The United States say that questions about Human Rights are "above my pay grade"? Barack Obama, while Illinois State Senator actually voted several times to allow newborn infants, babies born alive who survived late-term abortions, to be neglected, denied medical care, starved and killed in hospitals as a form of "reproductive rights" and "women's choice".

    Even dogs would have more rights than babies who survive abortion under laws supported by Obama. Barack Obama voted on record to say that those living breathing infants do not have human rights and yet he didn't even have the courage to answer that same question at a time when the people of the nation he wants to lead are all watching and listening. That's just shameful cowardice.
    We Can't Protect Human Rights If We Can't Protect Human Life.


    ALL Americans Will Pay For Obama's Tax Increases:

    * When taxes on business go up, customers pay for that tax in higher prices in goods and services. Barack Obama's tax increase on business will be payed by everyday consumers and that affects EVERYBODY. Obama also wants to double the capital-gains tax on investments. When capital-gains taxes go up, it stifles investment incentives which is a direct hit for any middle-class folks with stock investments, and an indirect hit to anyone wih an IRA, 401k or pension because of the stifling ripple effect it would cause in the markets.

    And Barack Obama has even admitted himself that he wants to double the capital-gains tax NOT to raise revenue, but rather to get even with people who make money on their market investments - he said back in April 2008 that he wanted to raise the capital-gains tax NOT to increase revenue but simply "for the purpose of fairness". How is it "fair" to punish people who invest their money and put their money at risk in the stock market? If anything it punishes the entire market and everyone who has any investments in the market (including IRAs, 401ks, pensions, etc.) will be punished by a stifled stock market that is smothered by higher taxes "for the purpose of fairness".
    Taxing "The Rich" Does Not Create Jobs Or Wealth For The Poor.


    You Don't Control Spending By Creating New Spending Programs:

    * Barack Obama's own campaign website details no less than $200 Billion per year in new spending programs or over a quarter of a trillion dollars in new spending in just his first four years as President. $85 Billion-a-year in income-tax credits to non-payers of income-tax, $65 Billion-a-year "global poverty tax", $65 Billion-a-year gov't health care plan, $30 Billion-a-year for "free" college tuition, $25 Billion-a-year increase in foreign aid, $18 Billion-a-year in education spending, $15 Billion-a-year in green energy, $5 Billion-a-year universal mortgage credit, $5 Billion mortgage bailout plan, $2 Billion-a-year "Clean Technologies Venture Capital" slush fund, $3.5 Billion for a national service plan, $1.5 Billion "paid-leave" funded by the gov't. Put it all together, and we are talking about a $200 billon plan, $800 Billion over four years.

    And these are just the STARTING figures. As a universal rule, gov't programs always end up costing far more than their projected to cost when first proposed. And this doesn't even consider the $700 Billion FannieMae/FreddieMac bailout being pushed through Congress right now.
    Barack Obama's Answer To Every Domestic Issue Starts With A Billion Dollars And Ends With A Bigger Government Program.


    Inconsistent Rhetoric Reveals Inconsistent Resolve:

    * While campaigning in Oregon in April 2008, Barack Obama nonchalantly dismissed the very serious notion that Iran is a threat to the US saying, "They don't pose a serious threat to us... Iran may spend one one-hundredth of what we spend on the military. I mean, if Iran ever tried to pose a serious threat to us, they wouldn't stand a chance". Then, just two days later, Obama proclaimed, "Iran is a grave threat. It has an illicit nuclear program, it supports terrorism across the region..." Well, which is it? Is Iran a threat or not?

    Confusing statements such as this do not show a confidence of understanding or resolve. Back in August 2007, Barack Obama stated categorically that he would certainly launch military attacks within Pakistan against terrorists without then-President Mushariff's approval or cooperation "If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won't act, we will,". Pakistan is a nuclear power and ally in the region. Apparently Obama thinks Iran is less of a threat than Pakistan because he has said repeatedly since then that he'd prefer to use economic santions against Iran if they don't cooperate with stopping their nuclear program - but if Pakistan is uncooperative about terrorists hiding in their mountain caves, he says he'd launch military attacks inside Pakistan.

    But then, we don't even know if Obama is serious when he says he would support economic santions against Iran. Last year Obama was one of only few Senators who voted against the bipartisan-supported Kyl-Lieberman Amendment which would impose economic sanctions against the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. Even Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin voted for sanctions, but Obama voted 'no' calling it "saber-rattling". Again, Obama's recent trail of very inconsistent stances regarding the threat of nuclear-armed Islamicists (whether they be in Pakistan or Iran) is not something that creates confidence in ANY position Obama says he has regarding these threats.
    Obama's Inconsistent And Contradictory Responses To These Serious National Security Threats Are Inconsistent And Contradictory With Him Being Taken Seriously About Any Response To National Security Threats.

    * When asked by Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren "When does a baby get human rights", Barack Obama said glibly that it was "above my pay grade". How can a man who wants to be President Of The United States say that questions about Human Rights are "above my pay grade"? Barack Obama, while Illinois State Senator actually voted several times to allow newborn infants, babies born alive who survived late-term abortions, to be neglected, denied medical care, starved and killed in hospitals as a form of "reproductive rights" and "women's choice".

    Even dogs would have more rights than babies who survive abortion under laws supported by Obama. Barack Obama voted on record to say that those living breathing infants do not have human rights and yet he didn't even have the courage to answer that same question at a time when the people of the nation he wants to lead are all watching and listening. That's just shameful cowardice.

    We Can't Protect Human Rights If We Can't Protect Human Life.

The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist Professors and the structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets... we were resisting bourgeois society's stifling constraints."

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his friend and fellow partner on several Chicago community organization boards and in whose home he launched his political career, William Ayers, was an infamous and unrepentent radical leftwing terrorist who boasted about planting bombs and killing people in this country.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that the Chicago Community Organizing group that he chose to join was founded by self-avowed Communist-supporter Saul Alinsky (who actually dedicated his book, "Rules For Radicals" to Lucifer) and that he was mentored by one of Alinsky's students John L. McKnight who was also an unapologetic radical Socialist.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his colleague, supporter and personal friend, Rashid Khalidi, who was married to the President of the Arab American Action Network to which Obama helped funnel $40,000 from one of his Community groups, was also a long-time anti-Israeli and an ardent supporter of the PLO while working for the Palestinian news agency, Wafa.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his friend Tony Rezko who bailed Obama out of financial trouble and bought him a home was a such a corrupt slumlord that he was just convicted for years of committing extortion, fraud and money laundering.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that one of his vice-presidential search committee advisors, Jim Johnson was the former Chairman & CEO of Fannie Mae which, in a 2004 Federal Investigation, was found to have improperly deferred $200 million in expenses, substantially under-reported his own compensation to the tune of almost $20 million and who personally received below market-rate loans from Countrywide Financial because the corporation considered them to be "FOA's" - "Friends of Angelo" (Countrywide CEO Angelo Mozilo).

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his close friend, Frank Marshall Davis, whom he wrote about with such admiration in his book "Dreams Of My Father" was a radical member of the Communist Party USA, an ardent Stalinist and a outspoken supporter of the 60's Black-Power movement.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his own Church, Trinity United, was founded on the racist 'Black Liberation Theology" teachings of the 1960's radical Black-Supremacist James Cone who wrote and spoke extensively of his hatred of whites including: "If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him... Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy."

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his own pastor of over 20 years, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who conducted his marriage and children's baptisms and served as adivsor on his campaign had regularly spewed the most offensive, racist, white-hating, America-hating "sermons" in his very own Church and praised the likes of Louis Farrahkahn, Mohammar Khaddaffi and sympathized with Hamas.

    Obama Just Can't Get Anything Right.



    Barack Obama Was Wrong - The Surge Worked In Iraq:

    * US casulaties are down almost 80%, violence is down even more to the lowest levels since the war started and it's directly due to the troop surge that John McCain was among the first to support. The surge worked, Al Qaeda In Iraq is being neutralized and stability and cooperation is growing among Iraqis. Barack Obama was wrong to oppose the surge and was wrong when he said it wouldn't work and was wrong when he said that it would make the violence worse.

    And now, faced with the undeniable success of the surge, Obama has the audacity to simply distort the truth, in an interview aired the very night that John McCain accepted the Republican Presidential Nomination, saying that "nobody anticipated" the surge would succeed like it did. John McCain thought it would work, knew it would work and that's why he pushed for it from the very beginning.
    In Barack Obama's First Major Foreign Policy Decision As US Senator - He Voted Against The Surge And He Got It Completely Wrong.


    FannieMae former-CEO's Golden Parachutes Landed Them Right Into The Obama Campaign:

    * John McCain was right to co-sponsor a Senate Bill to reform FannieMae's recklessness back in 2005, to head off the coming subprime mortgage meltdown. That bill was blocked by Senate Democrats. The Chairman & CEO of FannieMae at the time, Franklin D. Raines, soon took an "early retirement" amid investigations by the SEC for "accounting irregularities" and was sued for his mismanagement of FannieMae, lawsuits which he just settled this year by paying out millions in penalites. Raines is now one of Barack Obama's economic advisors.

    And another former FannieMae Chairman & CEO, Jim Johnson, led Barack Obama's vice-presidential search committee. In 2004, a Federal Investigation found during Johnson's tenure, FannieMae had improperly deferred $200 million in expenses and later found that FannieMae substantially under-reported Johnson's compensation to the tune of almost $20 million. Coincidentially, Obama has received more campaign contributions from FannieMae employees than ALL other Senators except one, Senator Chris Dodd.
    We Need More Reform And More Accountibility With Less Favoritism And Less Conflict Of Interest.


    Allowing Born-Alive Babies To Die Is Not Part Of A Woman's Choice:

    * When asked by Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren "When does a baby get human rights", Barack Obama said glibly that it was "above my pay grade". How can a man who wants to be President Of The United States say that questions about Human Rights are "above my pay grade"? Barack Obama, while Illinois State Senator actually voted several times to allow newborn infants, babies born alive who survived late-term abortions, to be neglected, denied medical care, starved and killed in hospitals as a form of "reproductive rights" and "women's choice".

    Even dogs would have more rights than babies who survive abortion under laws supported by Obama. Barack Obama voted on record to say that those living breathing infants do not have human rights and yet he didn't even have the courage to answer that same question at a time when the people of the nation he wants to lead are all watching and listening. That's just shameful cowardice.
    We Can't Protect Human Rights If We Can't Protect Human Life.


    ALL Americans Will Pay For Obama's Tax Increases:

    * When taxes on business go up, customers pay for that tax in higher prices in goods and services. Barack Obama's tax increase on business will be payed by everyday consumers and that affects EVERYBODY. Obama also wants to double the capital-gains tax on investments. When capital-gains taxes go up, it stifles investment incentives which is a direct hit for any middle-class folks with stock investments, and an indirect hit to anyone wih an IRA, 401k or pension because of the stifling ripple effect it would cause in the markets.

    And Barack Obama has even admitted himself that he wants to double the capital-gains tax NOT to raise revenue, but rather to get even with people who make money on their market investments - he said back in April 2008 that he wanted to raise the capital-gains tax NOT to increase revenue but simply "for the purpose of fairness". How is it "fair" to punish people who invest their money and put their money at risk in the stock market? If anything it punishes the entire market and everyone who has any investments in the market (including IRAs, 401ks, pensions, etc.) will be punished by a stifled stock market that is smothered by higher taxes "for the purpose of fairness".
    Taxing "The Rich" Does Not Create Jobs Or Wealth For The Poor.


    You Don't Control Spending By Creating New Spending Programs:

    * Barack Obama's own campaign website details no less than $200 Billion per year in new spending programs or over a quarter of a trillion dollars in new spending in just his first four years as President. $85 Billion-a-year in income-tax credits to non-payers of income-tax, $65 Billion-a-year "global poverty tax", $65 Billion-a-year gov't health care plan, $30 Billion-a-year for "free" college tuition, $25 Billion-a-year increase in foreign aid, $18 Billion-a-year in education spending, $15 Billion-a-year in green energy, $5 Billion-a-year universal mortgage credit, $5 Billion mortgage bailout plan, $2 Billion-a-year "Clean Technologies Venture Capital" slush fund, $3.5 Billion for a national service plan, $1.5 Billion "paid-leave" funded by the gov't. Put it all together, and we are talking about a $200 billon plan, $800 Billion over four years.

    And these are just the STARTING figures. As a universal rule, gov't programs always end up costing far more than their projected to cost when first proposed. And this doesn't even consider the $700 Billion FannieMae/FreddieMac bailout being pushed through Congress right now.
    Barack Obama's Answer To Every Domestic Issue Starts With A Billion Dollars And Ends With A Bigger Government Program.


    Inconsistent Rhetoric Reveals Inconsistent Resolve:

    * While campaigning in Oregon in April 2008, Barack Obama nonchalantly dismissed the very serious notion that Iran is a threat to the US saying, "They don't pose a serious threat to us... Iran may spend one one-hundredth of what we spend on the military. I mean, if Iran ever tried to pose a serious threat to us, they wouldn't stand a chance". Then, just two days later, Obama proclaimed, "Iran is a grave threat. It has an illicit nuclear program, it supports terrorism across the region..." Well, which is it? Is Iran a threat or not?

    Confusing statements such as this do not show a confidence of understanding or resolve. Back in August 2007, Barack Obama stated categorically that he would certainly launch military attacks within Pakistan against terrorists without then-President Mushariff's approval or cooperation "If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won't act, we will,". Pakistan is a nuclear power and ally in the region. Apparently Obama thinks Iran is less of a threat than Pakistan because he has said repeatedly since then that he'd prefer to use economic santions against Iran if they don't cooperate with stopping their nuclear program - but if Pakistan is uncooperative about terrorists hiding in their mountain caves, he says he'd launch military attacks inside Pakistan.

    But then, we don't even know if Obama is serious when he says he would support economic santions against Iran. Last year Obama was one of only few Senators who voted against the bipartisan-supported Kyl-Lieberman Amendment which would impose economic sanctions against the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. Even Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin voted for sanctions, but Obama voted 'no' calling it "saber-rattling". Again, Obama's recent trail of very inconsistent stances regarding the threat of nuclear-armed Islamicists (whether they be in Pakistan or Iran) is not something that creates confidence in ANY position Obama says he has regarding these threats.
    Obama's Inconsistent And Contradictory Responses To These Serious National Security Threats Are Inconsistent And Contradictory With Him Being Taken Seriously About Any Response To National Security Threats.

    Why The Sub-Prime/Fannie-Mae meltdown?

    * Throughout the 1990s, the Clinton Adminstration and Democrat-controlled Congress pressured FannieMae to start offering more sub-prime loans to people with poor credit who couldn't normally afford or qualify for home loans (including many minorities). "Fannie Mae has agreed to buy more loans with very low down payments-or with mortgage payments that represent an unusually high percentage of a buyer's income. That's made banks willing to lend to lower-income families they once might have rejected."
    (Source: LA Times, 1999)

    * Warnings were raised as early as 1999 that this program could come back to devastate Fannie Mae.
    (Source: NYTimes, Sept. 1999)

    * Starting in 2001, President Bush has been publicly calling for Congressional reform of FannieMae/FreddieMac - including 17 times in 2008 alone.
    (Source: WhiteHouse, Sept 2008.)

    * In 2003, President Bush recommended a new agency to oversee FannieMae/Freddie Mac which was even then known to be broken. Democrats not only blocked this effort - they DENIED there was even a problem: ''These two entities -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- are not facing any kind of financial crisis,'' said Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts, the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee.
    (Source: NYTimes, Sept. 2003)

    * Barney Frank, who is openly gay, was actually involved long-time romatic relationship with a FannieMae executive Herb Moses for ten years throughout most of the 1990s. Frank had in the past been called upon to use his influence on the House Financial Services Committee to support FannieMae.
    (Source: Business & Media Institute)

    * In 2004, House Democrats continued to vehemently deny there were any problems with FannieMae/FreddieMac and viciously attacked those who suggested that they were heading into trouble and needing reform.
    (Source: Video of House Democrats)

    * In 2005, Republicans in Congress did create legislation to regulate and reform FannieMae/FreddieMac and to try to avert this coming disaster. John McCain supported and was a co-sponsor of that bill. McCain did what he could to stop this disaster years ago.
    (Source: Congressional Record)

    * Democrats in the Senate killed that Republican Bill to regulate and reform Fannie/Freddie right before the 2006 election. After that Democrats took control of the House and Senate in 2006, there were no more serious attempts made to avert the coming meltdown of FannieMae/FreddieMac by the Democrat-controlled Congress.

    * Since 2006, Barack Obama has received $125,000 in campaign contributions from FannieMae/FreddieMac employees and PACs - more per year than any other member of Congress.
    (Source: 1989-2008)

    * Obama is the second largest recipient of total campaign contributions from Fannie/Freddie PACs - fellow Democratic Senator Chris Dodd is #1. Dodd also oversees the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Development - and he made sure that no one did anything to address the long-standing problems with FannieMae.

    * In the 1990s, Jim Johnson was Chairman and CEO of FannieMae. In 2004, a Federal Investigation found that during Johnson's tenure, FannieMae had improperly deferred $200 million in expenses, over-reported its value and later found that FannieMae substantially under-reported Johnson's compensation to the tune of almost $20 million.

    * After Johnson's tenure, Franklin D. Raines was Fannie Mae Chairman/CEO until 2004 and he also supported these risky, sub-prime loan programs. In 2004, Raines was forced to take an "early retirement" from Fannie Mae while under investigation by the Securities & Exchange Commission and lawsuits over "accounting irregularities". Raines settled those lawsuits this year by paying millions in penalities.

    * Franklin Raines has been tapped as an economic advisor to Barack Obama's Presidential campaign and Jim Johnson worked on Barack Obama vice-presidential search committee.
    (Sources: Wash. Post July 2008, Wash. Post Aug 2008)


    BOTTOMLINE:
    - The FannieMae "subprime" problem began with the Clinton Administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress in the early 90s.
    - Warnings were sounded in the late '90s of a coming financial disaster.
    - President Bush tried repeatedly to fix this problem since 2001 - but Democrats denied the problem it even existed.
    - Republicans in Congress tried to fix this problem - but Democrats effectively blocked them.
    - Proposals for bipartisan solutions stopped when Democrats took control of Congress.
    - Democrats even viciously attacked people who tried to alert Congress of the growing FannieMae problem.
    - Democrats who are NOW claiming they can fix the problem (like Frank, Dodd, Obama, etc.) are the exact same ones who ignored the problem, who denied the problem, who are tained by FannieMae contributions and obvious conflicts of interest and who are still associated and entwined with failed and discredited FannieMae CEOs.
