Sen. John Glenn - Part of the Keating Five, and a Democrat. He is doing surrogate work for Obama? Like McCain, Glenn was also found not guilty of violating any Senate rules.”
Attorney John Dowd, who represented McCain during the Senate Ethics investigation, said Senate Democrats conducted a "classic political smear job" on McCain in the Keating Five scandal.
"When it was discovered Keating was pushing too hard, he [McCain] threw Keating out of his office and ended all relations with him," Dowd said. Jack Abramoff: While he was convicted of a crime that at the time McCain didn’t know he was committing, Ayers however was “a leader of the Weather Underground, a terrorist group responsible for countless bombings against targets including the U.S. Capitol, the Pentagon and numerous police stations, courthouses and banks. In recent years, Mr. Ayers has stated, ‘I don’t regret setting bombs … I feel we didn’t do enough.’
“The question now is, will Barack Obama immediately call on the University of Illinois to release all of the records they are currently withholding to shed further light on Senator Obama’s relationship with this unrepentant terrorist?”

Tony Rezko - He has been called an influence peddler while others call Abramoff a convicted felon? Rezko was found guilty on 16 of 24 counts. I think that is 13 felonies. At any rate, he is making a purported deal with the Chicago Tribune to give up info on Obama:
Antoin “Tony” Rezko, a convicted influence peddler who was once one of Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s most trusted confidants, has met with federal prosecutors and is considering cooperating in the corruption probe of the governor’s administration, sources told the Tribune.
Rezko’s possible change of heart—after years of steadfast refusal—has sent ripples through a tight circle of prominent defense attorneys who represent dozens of potential witnesses and targets in the wide-ranging probe.
His cooperation would give prosecutors investigating the governor and his wife access to someone they have described as an ultimate political insider at the center of a pervasive pay-to-play scheme.

James Johnson - CEO Fannie Mae and long-time Democrat that Obama used as an advisor that vetted running mates, and in fact led it. Johnson was forced to step-down because of some fishy dealings... but he left with multiple millions. Had dealings with Countrywide, biggest offender in sub-prime lending market. Shady dealings with multiple loans from Countrywide (7-million dollars).
Harold Raines - CEO Fannie Mae also an advisor on housing for Obama. He likewise has some shady dealings with Countrywide worth a few million dollars
Jamie Gurlich - Vice Chair of Fannie Mae was Jamie Gurlich when Raines was CEO. She is known as the author of the “Wall of Separation” which stopped the CIA and FBI from sharing information with each other that most likely would have abated 9/11. She made 26-million while at Fannie Mae... another high ranking Democrat.
Barney Frank - chairman of the House Financial Services panel had oversight for this very issue the past two years. He had a homosexual affair with Herb Moses, an executive at Fannie Mae while on the House Banking Committee.
ACORN - played a key role in pressuring banks to offer loans to those who were unlikely to be able to pay them back. ACORN has taken credit for pressuring banks to accept undocumented income as a basis for offering loans, for offering loans without using credit scores, and for making 100% financed loans available to low-income people. He was its lawyer in several pivotal ACORN cases. Obama funded a number of its activities, as well. When he sat on the board of the prestigious Woods Fund for Chicago alongside former Weather Underground terrorist William Ayers, he oversaw and approved many grants for ACORN.
“Mr. Good Will” and “Mr. Doodad Pro” - And that 11,500 donations to his campaign – totaling almost $34 million – may have come from overseas? Or that two Palestinians living in a Hamas-controlled refugee camp spent $31,300 in Obama’s online store?
Jeremiah Wright - More than a race batter, he was on Obama’s campaign staff. He went with Louis Farrakhan and met Momar Khadafy. He taught a Marxist form of theology that also incorporated the same ideology first found in Nicaragua with a dash of anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism for good measure. They warped the Bible to say that the true Jewish people were the blacks and that even God was black and that all white people were not true Christians. Could you imagine if Bush went to a church for twenty years and was married by and had all his kids baptized by a guy who invited David Duke into his fold and said all white people were the only true Christians and that Jews were devils? How disingenuous Kimba to merely say he is merely a “race-baiter.”
People's Weekly World - the official newspaper of the Communist Party of the USA – has rhapsodized about Obama’s presidential campaign, calling it a "transformative candidacy that would advance progressive politics for the long term"? Obama concedes that he attended “socialist conferences” and encountered Marxist literature.
Louise Farrakhan - introduced to him at his church and went to the “Million Man March” with Wright and also met Farrakhan there. Obama’s church gave a lifetime achievement award to this man as well as front-page spreads on their magazine. Farrakhan believes a UFO picked him up and took him to a man-made planet where God (Wallace D. Fard) spoke to him and said that Elijah Muhammad was a little messiah. Elijah and Farrakhan teach that a mad scientist made the white man 6,000 years ago. Again, black people are the only true Jews and the Jews in Israel and the whites must be destroyed.
Ayers - (Terorrist) Ayers was credibly accused, in classified testimony before a Senate subcommittee in 1974, of involvement in the murder of a police officer in San Francisco, as well as an attempted (and unsuccessful) anti-personnel bombing in Detroit. Obama was Vetted by Ayers and the two served on a 6-person board together where both tried to radicalize students by passing “education reform.”
John L. McKnight - renowned disciple of the late socialist agitator Saul "The Red" Alinksy wrote a letter of recommendation for Obama when he applied to Harvard Law School. He read communist Richard Wright’s writings. W.E.B. DuBois, who eulogized Joseph Stalin was also modeled. Read Malcolm X approvingly as well.
Cornell West - who calls himself a “progressive socialist,” has said that “Marxist thought is “an indispensible tradition for freedom fighters. West is on Obama’s “black advisory board.”
Saul Alinsky - Saul Alinsky, who died in 1972, at the age of 63, was a Chicago Marxist. Among his many books was one titled "Rules for Radicals," in which he explained to his acolytes, "The most effective means are whatever will achieve the desired results." It took Alinsky 11 words to paraphrase Karl Marx's far more succinct "The ends justify the means."
Alinsky, by the way, dedicated that particular book to Lucifer, whom he coyly referred to as "the first radical."
The reason I'm bringing up Alinsky 26 years after he wound up in a place where he could personally autograph his book for Beelzebub is because his disciples are still very much with us. For instance, he just happened to be the subject of Hillary Rodham's senior honors thesis at Wellesley College. It was such a glowing homage that, in 1968, a most appreciative Alinsky offered her a job in Chicago, but Ms. Rodham, as we all know, had bigger fish to fry. However, when she became America's first lady, the White House asked Wellesley to restrict access to the paper, and Wellesley wisely obliged, just as Princeton did when the Obama’s requested that Michelle's racist creed be removed from circulation.
Many people, once they grow up, would be embarrassed if people knew what they were drinking or smoking during their college days, but leftists don't even want us to know what they were thinking.
But it wasn't just young Ms. Rodham who had a connection to the late, unlamented Saul Alinsky. Thirteen years after the Chicago radical died, a group of his most devoted disciples hired 24-year-old Barack Obama to be a community organizer in South Chicago.
Top Three - top three people getting money from Fannie and Freddie were Chris Dodd, Obama, and John Kerry. Obama was new however and was on his way to setting records.

Maybe I just wasn't paying attention during the previous few presidential elections, but have we always been doing this "guilt by association" thing, or is this a new phenomenon? Sorry for my ignorance.

Your forgiven.

This is how the right feels... mad... mad that McCain has "wimped out" at the last debate. I agree with the old man:

Take a look at McCain circa 2006, and in recent times. The man is deteriorating mentally.

By the way, Jennifer, this guilt by association thing is not new, but never so previlent, on both sides, although Obama takes a higher road.

What the Republicans have done since Dukakis is try to paint the Democrats as non, or anti-American, except for Al Gore, which would have been futile.

Examine what McCain's pit bull with lipstick is doing....nothing substanitive, just you served on a board with the radical Ayers, (who is now an accepted part of the Chicago education system), your middle name is Hussein (which they are starting to use), you may have gotten a few thousand dollars in contributions from Arabs (out of untold millions), your wife says she is not proud of America, etc., etc., etc.

Translation....you are a MUSLIM, you are a TERRORIST, you are, or may be the ANTI-CHRIST, you are not a true AMERICAN, Fannie and Freddie heads are your CRONIES (i.e. they are liberal, and BLACK), etc., etc.

They are WRONG on almost every issue, so this is what they have to fight with. Politics at its worst, BUT, Obama has around 90 million for TV ads, which will receive twenty times the exposure the old man will get on C-SPAN. Game on!

You are wrong Kimba, these sub-prime guys are yours. They went to churches with Obama and said he [Obama] was family. They were in bed with mainly Democrat Senators. When Republicans tried to fight against these bad loans, the Democrats stopped them cold. And even Bill Clinton blames the Democrats:

Who did these mortgage giants give their money to Kimba?

Do the math. Obama is years younger than "that one" and has lied less.

Papa Giorgio said...

So Kimba, just because Ayers is accepted in Chicago means that the following is okay with you?

CAC translated Mr. Ayers’s radicalism into practice. Instead of funding schools directly, it required schools to affiliate with “external partners,” which actually got the money. Proposals from groups focused on math/science achievement were turned down. Instead CAC disbursed money through various far-left community organizers, such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (or Acorn).

Mr. Obama once conducted “leadership training” seminars with Acorn, and Acorn members also served as volunteers in Mr. Obama’s early campaigns. External partners like the South Shore African Village Collaborative and the Dual Language Exchange focused more on political consciousness, Afrocentricity and bilingualism than traditional education. CAC’s in-house evaluators comprehensively studied the effects of its grants on the test scores of Chicago public-school students. They found no evidence of educational improvement.

CAC also funded programs designed to promote “leadership” among parents. Ostensibly this was to enable parents to advocate on behalf of their children’s education. In practice, it meant funding Mr. Obama’s alma mater, the Developing Communities Project, to recruit parents to its overall political agenda. CAC records show that board member Arnold Weber was concerned that parents “organized” by community groups might be viewed by school principals “as a political threat.” Mr. Obama arranged meetings with the Collaborative to smooth out Mr. Weber’s objections.

The Daley documents show that Mr. Ayers sat as an ex-officio member of the board Mr. Obama chaired through CAC’s first year. He also served on the board’s governance committee with Mr. Obama, and worked with him to craft CAC bylaws. Mr. Ayers made presentations to board meetings chaired by Mr. Obama. Mr. Ayers spoke for the Collaborative before the board. Likewise, Mr. Obama periodically spoke for the board at meetings of the Collaborative.

By the way... Obama was called the Messiah by the guy who got two full page cover-shots in Obama's church's magazine and received the "lifetime achievement award" by said church. He [Farrakhan] said he [Onama] was the Messiah, I say he is an anti-Messiah (or an anti-Christ archetype).

Rumor Mill... Rezko is starting to name names...

Kim said...

Rezko is starting to name names, but not THAT name. And, as you well know, Obama is not my dream candidate. But I do prefer him to McCain, who is coming apart at the seams. The way he wandered around aimlessly around the town hall stage, the way he would not look Obama in the eye last time, his faultering memory, his referring to Obama as "THAT GUY." He is much slower witted, more confused, not to mention his lame, moronic answers sometimes. He is in early onset dementia, not uncommon for a man his age. This is not entirely about his age, it is about his health.

Papa Giorgio said...

Didn't speak to any of the comments... just more ad-homonym attacks. For instance, you had mentioned that Ayers is a respected Chicago educator, that's fine to say... but the question remains, do you agree with what Ayers and Obama tried to teach in Chicago? I asked you to name who the couple SNL spoofed off of (and later censored... fellow libs) gave their money to, you responded with McCain walking around the stage to ease his nervousness. The question remains Kimba, who did one of the worse offenders of the sub-prime crisis that sold these bad loans to Wachovia... causing them to go bankrupt... give money to? I gave you a video link to watch? Since you seem to think these are neo-cons or something of the like... the question I asked still looms!

I will not, can not defend Bill Ayers (except to say he has done his time), ACORN, Rezko, Raines, Lee, Means, OR the conservatives who had the majority in both houses, the Oval Office and the Supreme Court. There is more than enough blame to share, especially our last TWO Fed chairmen.

This was not entirely the blame of Barney Frank or his committee either. One could argue he could no more stop the financial snowball than turn straight.

The bankers were stupid, the escrow people were greedy, and anyone who thinks the CRA was forcing anyone (or even recommending) any institution process the kind of risky, no win paper they were spewing forth is sadly mistaken. The libs simply tried to end redlining and bigotry in the lending world. A great idea poorly applied, and not overseen at all. Personally, I think everyone should get passed the blame game, and move forward. The destruction of our (and if you have read the papers today) the world's financial markets is NOT a political opportunity.

If your side hadn't nominated a completely unacceptable ticket (I could have stomached Romney, Brownback, or maybe even the good Rev), I would have hoped you took the election, floundered for four years and then we take over (and that does mean Hillary).

"(except to say he has done his time)"
--- he said he didn't do enough. That is like a pedophile doing time and then saying when he has done his time he didn't "do" enough. Except with Ayers and his "way of doing things doesn't always have to include a bomb... it can include educational reforms (e.g., revolutionary thinking inserted into the public school system) that are just as dangerous to the country.

Maybe the three executives (two ex CEOs) from Fannie and Freddie working for Obama can answer how we can have equality and liberty at the same time.

You still didn't answer, "who did the greedy corporate bank owners that were the driving force in these bad loans give their money to???
