Economic CrisisIt’s not an easy
task to find any Obama accomplishments. But the current banking crisis,

happens to have played a major role in the current collapse of the
mortgage and housing industries.

In short, though Obama is on the campaign trail blaming the current
economic crisis on President Bush and John McCain, it is actually Obama,
the Congressional Black Caucus and Democrats who are at the root of
today’s financial woes. Facts don’t lie... Politicians do!
While claiming "he” is the solution to this as well as every other
problem on earth, past Obama decisions are in fact at the epicenter of

does a magnificent job of detailing the hard facts concerning the long
road to disaster traveled by Fannie and Freddie, as well as many other
mortgage lending institutions. It was the effort to turn mortgage
lending into yet another federal welfare program that led to the
collapse of the mortgage industry.

CEO Calling Obama & The Dems "Family"
lenders were forced by congressional Democrats,
specifically Barack Obama and the Congressional Black Caucus, to lower
lending guidelines to welfare levels in order to make homeownership
possible for Democrat constituents who would otherwise never qualify to
own a home. This
2005 video clip of Fannie Mae CEO Daniel Mudd before the
Congressional Black Caucus swearing in ceremony connects the dots that
Obama hopes you will never see...
Freddie Bought a Blind Eye from Congressional Regulators
CNN Reports "Freddie Mac (FRE,
Fortune 500) spent over $94.8-million on lobbyists since 1998,
making it the nation's 12th-largest lobbying client, while Fannie Mae (FNM,
Fortune 500) bought $79.5-million of influence, the 20th biggest
spender, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.” –
"They wanted to fend off regulation of their enterprises," said
Massie Ritsch of the Center.
Barack Obama is the No. 3 recipient of Fannie and Freddie campaign
having collected $123,000 from the companies since he first ran for
the Senate in 2004, according to the Federal Election Commission and the
Center for Responsive Politics.”

John Kerry (D), Barney Franks (D) and Charles Schumer (D) all played a

from a candidate advised by the men who bought off Obama, Dodd, Kerry,
Franks and Schumer, only to bankrupt the financial industry in the end?
As we listen to Obama, Biden and all of their Democrat parrots
(including in the press) attempt to lay today’s financial crisis at the
door of the Bush White House, which tried desperately to reform lenders

Kerry, Barney Franks and Chucky Schumer, are wholly responsible for the
lack of real oversight that allowed our current financial crisis to
become an unavoidable reality.
Fannie and Freddie bought them, and now the American tax-payer is stuck
