McCain revived a familiar villain -- "huge amounts" of political money -- when Barack Obama announced that he had received contributions of $150 million in September. "The dam is broken," said McCain, whose constitutional carelessness involves wanting to multiply impediments to people who want to participate in politics by contributing to candidates -- people such as the 632,000 first-time givers to Obama in September.

Why is it virtuous to erect a dam of laws to impede the flow of contributions by which citizens exercise their First Amendment right to political expression? "We're now going to see," McCain warned, "huge amounts of money coming into political campaigns, and we know history tells us that always leads to scandal." The supposedly inevitable scandal, which supposedly justifies preemptive government restrictions on Americans' freedom to fund the dissemination of political ideas they favor, presumably is that Obama will be pressured to give favors to his September givers. The contributions by the new givers that month averaged $86.

Barack Obama likes to blame Republicans for the current mortgage crisis , but there's a reason why the huge government sponsored mortgage bank gave more money to Barack Obama than almost anyone else in politics: to facilitate and cover their ill-fated lending practices.
After only 4 short years in the U.S. Senate, Barack Obama is the #2 recipient of Fannie Mae / Freddie Mac lobbyist dollar giveaways and campaign contributions, receiving $126,349. In fact, the government sponsored mortgage bank has given more money to top Democrats than anyone else in an effort to keep regulators at bay.
Still, most other democrats have received less in 20 years than Obama has in 4 years from Fannie Mae.
John McCain is #62 on the list receiving $21,550 from Fannie Mae in 20 years.
Under the Clinton administration, Fannie Mae was given instructions to broaden its lending practices, lending to people in inner cities, the poor, and high risk applicants. Well, guess what; they couldn't afford their homes and are succumbing to foreclosure. What big government can do for you, it can do to you.
John Gibson offers this commentary on the big government debacle and mortgage crisis, showing how it is the Democrats, not Republicans, who are primarily responsible for the current housing crisis and buyouts, despite what Barack Obama says.

Behold, the chart of donations Fannie Mae / Freddie Mac contribute to DC politicians with an explanation by the CRP (Center for Responsive Politics) :

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Invest in Lawmakers

When the federal government announced two months ago that it would prop up mortgage buyers Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, CRP looked at how much money members of Congress had collected since 1989 from the companies. On Sunday the government completely took over the two government-sponsored enterprises, and we've returned to our data to bring you the updates, this time providing a list of all 354 lawmakers who have gotten money from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.



Why haven't we heard about this in an Obama campaign commercial??

My vote for Barr means that I dont support Liberals or Socialists. Im just saying what Big Jim never did. And McCain was doomed from the get go. Very little conserve base, little media support, he even turned down a spot on Fox to get 10 million viewers to listen to his BS. Turns out Palin was a negative, at least in the polls. If this race even gets to 5% majority, Obama lost. McCain looked idiotic in the debates, and the repubs have only thrown a liberal in the fire. Conservatism is not dead, if only in hiatus, it will rise again, hopefully with a real conservative. Ive taken steps to protect my money in the short term, Id recommend you do the same.

I'm buying!
Wall Street is running a fire sale. Those who put their money in the "safe" places are going to miss the bounce back.

George Will has been for years the voice of the conservative right. Capt. Frank attacks him not I as I added nothing to the content of the article. Racists cannot stand either side...McCain for immigraion and Obama because he is black. Now call Brandon and get me barred (pun intended) Capt. Racist.

etouffe why dont you pay up instead of making other people foot the bill here, so you can have a forum to espouse your ugly hatred. Support this site. I bet I know why. Its the same economic policy that Obama subscribes. Distribute money down to the people that dont pay. Your a fine example of your savior etouffe, keep up the good work.:thumbup:

You guaranteed me that I would be banned.....:D. You said to Brandon you would quit posting your juvenile thoughts here...but you keep posting making you a liar..:nono:
You have posted more racist remarks than can be heard at a David Duke beer bust....and I called you on it.
Why don't you have Brandon ban all of us who do not pay to post to this blog as your solution to any discent to your infantile thinking and biased posts is to silence the discenters. Stalin and Hitler beat you to that kind of thinking.

Do you know more about Brandon's business than Brandon, Frank? If he wanted it to be a paid member only site, it would be. If you choose to pay for the little extra frills that your membership gives you, good for you. Many of us don't need them. If you knew anything about the "web", you would realize that advertising is where the money is made. I have personally booked trips with two Charter Captains on the site, bought lots of tackle from one advertiser and almost bought a boat from the classifieds, but it was already sold. Get a clue, Frank.

CG....Capt. Racist is just trying to divert the heat from his obvious racism, his threats to have people thrown off of the board and his desire to limit what the opposition to his racist, juvenile and ignorant remarks can say about him. He should stick to poop in the water...a level he seems a expert at.
