Finally McCain Talking About Fannie Mae And The Democrats

He said he was going to take the gloves off and today he did landing quite a few body blows and uppercuts directly on Obama and those who caused this mess. He needs to hit hard and fast in this the final round of a long drawn out fight. He needs to add more muscle to the attack by tying Obama to ACORN and their work to force banks to make the bad loans that are directly behind this mess. Part of Obama's work as a young attorney was training ACORN workers in Alinsky style tactics to use against banks and he even helped by suing Citibank on their behalf, one of his very few accomplishments he can't talk about.

Barack Obama is lying to the American people and it is up to John McCain to expose those lies. John McCain fought for tighter oversight in 2006 while Barack was silent while his fellow Democrats blocked all attempts to reform Fannie and Freddie. Barack is bought and paid for by those corrupted mortgage giants, receiving more money from them in just three years than any other Senator besides Chris Dodd the Democrat in charge of the Banking Committee that is supposed to oversee them. Obama has collected almost as much from them in three short years than Dodd has in ten. In fact Obama chose one of the CEOs of Fannie responsible for cooking the books and drawing huge bonuses as a result, Jim Johnson, to head up his VP search committee. Penny Pritzger, his campaign finance chair, ran a Chicago bank than made millions in sub-prime loans they then sold to Fannie and Freddie at a profit. Obama is right smack dab in the center of this mess whether he wants to admit it or not and is not the one to lead the country out of this financial uncertainty.

Not only does McCain need to hang this albatross around Obama's neck, the rest of the GOP needs to hang it around the necks of their Democrat opponents in every district around the country.

You and I are on the same page. It seems there are a lot of people out there who have been dumbed down or are simply not paying enough attention or doing their homework. The liberal brainwashing has been very successful. I'm getting pretty worried.

Agree with Gayle, particularly her last line. However, I am committed to voting Democrats OUT and Indies or Republicans IN - assuming, of course, we are still permitted to vote, assuming a complete investigation of ACORN is launched and the frauds prosecuted, assuming a whole LOT of things. In the meantime, I keep running my Spysweeper program to avoid getting on a list of "hostiles" who need to be "re-educated..."

Never thought I'd see the day when I'd have to worry about some unmarked white van pulling up in my driveway :)

Well I agree with about 75% of the stuff you guys have posted about. Truth is, and I will say it going to my grave it was both parties, Wall Street, and the welfare rats that brought this on. That is what the American people need to be hearing, the plain simple truth. But John McCain did warn about this and no one listened, he does have that going for him.

As far as Obama is concerned, he is not the Anti-Christ that will send you to a re-education camp. He is an imbecile and lying newb who will trash this country much like Carduh did. Maybe a little worse since things weren't this bad at the beginnning of Carter's admin.

But on the "conspiracy side of things" be on the lookout for your First Admendment rights under an Obama admin. I do predict if he wins we will see another attmept at the the Fairness Doctrine being pushed down our throats, much like in 2006, I think it was.

As always Goat, keep up the great work and keep fighting the good fight.

"Happy Hunting!"
