Barack's Next Ad

It doesn't get much better than this.

American voters are casting about trying to figure out just who to blame for the subprime mortgage/derivative/credit crunch/housing bubble scandal. The Repugs, naturally, have their spin machines in overdrive - trying to convince average Americans that both parties are to blame and their Repug followers that it's really the Dems doing.

Time for a photo montage. You can start with Reagan's "trickle down" genius David Stockman, now staring at 30-years in prison for corporate accounting fraud. Then, how about Bush Sr. and Silverado Savings & Loan. Next up, John McCain and Chales Keating and Lincoln Savings & Loan. Then George w. Bush and "Kenny Boy" Lay of Enron fame. Cheney and Haliburton. Finally a Rogues Gallery of the Republican's "look the other way" regulators and then a quick return to John McCain and Charles Keating. Fade to black.

Ouch, ouch, ouch and ouch.

Keep hammering away at four decades of Republican shenanigans that have repeatedly wiped out little folks' life savings while facilitating the skyrocketing wealth of the real elite, America's wealthiest. Bring up clip of George w. at that black tie dinner bragging about his friends, "the haves and the have-mores, my base." Close with clip of John McCain saying he's supported Bush on every important piece of legislation throughout his presidency and his pledge to even further deregulate the financial services sector.

You might have to break that down into a series of three ads. Then but the best airtime you can get and run them in successive commercial breaks.

Bingo. Bye, bye Geezer.

Don't want to confuse you with facts old timer . . . but here they are . . . .

Fannie Mae really WAS run right into the ground wasn't it? And guess what? It was DEMOCRATS who did it. Former Fannie Mae Chairman and CEO Franklin Raines was the White House budget director under Bill Clinton. He was also cited by the Washington Post as an economic advisor to...Barack Obama. Obama, in his very short time in the U.S. Senate also quickly became the second largest recipient of campaign contributions from Fannie Mae, ahead of even John Kerry.

Well then, there's Jamie Gorelick. Does that name sound familiar? She served as Bill Clinton's Deputy Attorney General. She installed the Intelligence "Wall of Separation" that helped lead to the disaster we suffered on 9/11. Then she served as Vice Chairman at Fannie Mae. In 2002, she told "BusinessWeek" that Fannie Mae was "very, very strong" and was "managed safely". For her efforts, driving the company to the brink, she received $26 million plus bonuses.

Fannie Mae is heavily involved with the Congressional Black Caucus. Interim CEO Daniel Mudd described the relationship Fannie Mae and the Congressional Black Caucus shared as a "family" relationship. The Caucus pressured Fannie Mae to get mortgage loans for millions of Americans who couldn't afford them. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were the worst offenders in this housing loan crisis, which in turn caused so many banking institutions to go down with it. The crisis has had a domino effect throughout our financial institutions. In fact, AIG was in part brought down because it held $600 million in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Meanwhile, President Bush has called for reforming Fannie and Freddie 17 TIMES this year alone! The democrats' fingerprints are all over this crisis.

Reaching back to Regan for sub-prime mortgages that started in the mid 90's is patent nonsense . . . the inexperienced, inept Husein Obumma is a scarey fool. Wait till this poser has to actually debate. No one has ever been nominated for pres with less credentials than the Obumma one.

Oldschool, you're a damned fool, not to mention a tad racist. Bush has been the president for almost EIGHT years now, more than enough to get America mired under massive debt and hopeless foreign wars. The economic policy of the country, including the disastrous deregulation, was set by him - that's right, Messrs. Bush and Cheney. They didn't hesitate to veto anything they didn't like. Your greasy logic is pathetic. I don't know just what kind of a lowlife you are but if you want to make racist remarks, take your crap elsewhere, jerk.

And put your FoxNews/NewsMax propaganda right back up your backside where they planted it.

mound, I suggest you just delete that idiot's stuff, it's garbage and obvious cut and paste. Why waste your time? It gets old and you don't have to keep defending your work to an ignorant, abusive and angry nut job
