Hattip to goodtimepolitics

Thanks for the photo.

Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac are tied to the recent Lehman Brothers fallout.

Well, Barack NObama, it is hard to hide the real truth these days..It is easy to get Whacked !

You better get your act together and watch what you say when you attack on the economy..Now who is the fat cat? You or McCain? I think this website shows you are the # 2 guy that benefits the most from Fannie and Freddy. Now I did not see McCain’s name on this particular list of 354 of our esteemed politicians. Maybe my vision is going..GO FIGURE..

Yet you really think you have the answers to our economic woes. Do you really think we are buying that teleprompter well scripted speech on how this is all somebody else’s fault..Follow the money honey! See who really came out against this in print. Looks to me like the chickens are coming home to roost!

List of all 354 lawmakers who have gotten money from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (in July we posted the top 25). These totals are based on data released electronically from the FEC on Sept. 2 and include contributions to lawmakers’ leadership PACs and candidate committees from the floundering companies’ PACs and employees. Current members of Congress have received a total of $4.8 million from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, with Democrats collecting 57 percent of that.

Now check out this speech back in July with John McCain:

Excerpt:

First Published Wednesday, July 23, 2008 5:42 PM

Americans should be outraged at the latest sweetheart deal in Washington. Congress will put U.S. taxpayers on the hook for potentially hundreds of billions of dollars to bail out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It’s a tribute to what these two institutions — which most Americans have never heard of — have bought with more than $170-million worth of lobbyists in the past decade.

With combined obligations of roughly $5-trillion, the rapid failure of Fannie and Freddie would be a threat to mortgage markets and financial markets as a whole. Because of that threat, I support taking the unfortunate but necessary steps needed to keep the financial troubles at these two companies from further squeezing American families. But let us not forget that the threat that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac pose to financial markets is a tribute to crony capitalism that reflects the power of the Washington establishment.

Read the rest here: July 23, 2008 John McCain warns Congress of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac troubles.

GoodTimePolitics has come through again with a great link showing McCain warning Congress about Freddie Mac troubles back in 2005 check it here:http://beltwaysnark.com/2008/09/16/john-mccain-supported-a-proposal-for-an-ag

  5. You are an angel GoodTime.. Thank you, I will immediately add it. I was so curious about that and could not find it.. Hugs to ya!

  6. Here is another one of Obama’s top people that he let go earlier! Keep following that money! LOL

    The fact is the situation was untenable for a campaign that parades itself as an agent of change prepared to invade Washington and reform its sleazy insider ways. There are few other modern Democrats who are more savvy or insider than Johnson, who also happens to be a significant fundraiser for Obama.

    He and the campaign could sense the lasting legs this story of the wealthy Johnson getting special insider loan rates from Countrywide as a “friend of Angelo’s,” Angelo Mozilo, the co-founder of Countrywide. That’s the company Obama has criticized by name as bearing a large responsibility for the current loan crisis.

  7. Check your spam, I sent you another URL of another Obama crook!

    Thank you, You be the bomb! :)!

  8. You know, it is a crime that we have to DIG this stuff up… this should be EVERYWHERE… oh no… no… we HAVE to know about a tanning bed purchased with private money installed in the gov’s house in Alaska… yes yes… that IS IMPORTANT… but this… well… now… come on… this doesn’t mean anything.

    Yes, it is. What in the heck happened to reporters investigating for the truth AND reporting it..instead we get their versions of the tossed kleenex. The Tanning Bed..Yuk!
