GOPers are guilty! They let the Dems ruin the economy

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | This is the unified cry of the Democratic Party.

Just listen to Senator John Not Ready for Command Kerry, House Squeaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Banking Committee Head Chris Dodd, Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee Chuck Schumer, House Finance Committee Controller Barney "Kill Bill" Frank, and Senate Leader Harry Reid. Throw in the anointed one, Obama, and the chorus is complete.

In case you've lived under a bridge for the last month, 30 year senate veteran Dodd is the numero uno recipient of Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac contributions. It took Barack Obama less than three years in the senate to convince Freddy and Fannie to make him their number two cash benefactor.

Former Clinton Administration scions Assistant Attorney General Jaimie Gorlick, Barack economic advisor Franklin Raines, and head of Obama's VP Choice Committee Jim Johnson, got over $100 million from taxpayers for cooking the books at Fanny and Freddy and leading the world into financial quagmire.

Democrats uniformly howl Republican's failure to regulate Fannie and Freddy ruined the economy.

How dare those Republicans not prosecute us and throw us in jail for bankrupting America!?!

They are absolutely right.

In 2004 when Enron collapsed, a Republican lead congress saw to it that company big wigs Ken Lay and Jeffrey Skilling were disgraced, tried, and convicted. Lay died of a heart attack before he could serve his sentence.

As a result of the Enron hearings, congress passed the Sorbane-Oxley act to further regulate corporations.

Why hasn't the "in control" Dems called for hearings to find out just who is responsible for this mess? Because, as Rush Limbaugh points out, there isn't one Republican directly involved in the Fannie Mae, Freddy Mac fiasco.

Bush brought his concerns about Freddy and Fannie to congress every year since 2001. He got nowhere. Then in 2005 John McCain sponsored The Federal Housing Enterprise Regulatory Reform Act. It never got out of a Republican controlled committee.

Clearly, Republicans dropped the ball.

The only way to stop a bully is to turn and face him

Republicans raised red flags when they controlled congress from 1994 until 2006. Those indignant Dem incompetents took affront at conservatives meddling with their cancerous cash cow.

But Repubs, mealy mouthed before a Dem minority that clearly had their snouts in the Mae and Mac Magical Money Machine, didn't follow through.

What should the Repubs have done as the majority?

  • Forced hearings.

  • Hired a special prosecutor.

  • Applauded as Dem after Dem were frog-walked to holding bins awaiting trials.

  • Do a thorough investigation of Acorn.

An Acorn doesn't fall too far from it's Barack

Acorn, a propagator of "community organizing," is becoming infamous for its voter fraud. More FBI investigations are popping up than kernels in a micro-waved bag of Orville Redenbacher. Acorn's strong arm tactics include hiring felons; some on work release, for you guessed it…identity theft, to register voters.

It was informative that in the first bailout proposal from the Dems there was a big chunk of OUR money that was designated for Acorn.

Barack Hussein Obama is tied to Acorn at the hip. He distributed cash to Acorn in his position as the Chicago Annenberg Challenge Board Chairman, where he was appointed by his buddy, the unrepentant terrorist, William Ayers. He has also represented Acorn as their lawyer.

Don't let the foxes guard the henhouse

Let's not duplicate the fraud the far left perpetrated on our economy with the funding of sub prime 120% mortgages to people that couldn't pay it back.

Victories often occur when you see no way to succeed, but refuse to give up anyway.

McCain and Palin: keep fighting 'til the pantsuit lady sings!

Let's give 'em what they demand. When you glide into the voting booth regulate the Dems and their leader by keeping them out of office, out of our lives, and in congressional hearings, under oath.
