Video: Obama’s Special Olympics Bowling Comment To Jay Leno

There is was nothing mean spirited in Mr Obama’s comments. The comments were unfortunate but not unforgivable. Mr Obama is lucky he isn’t a Republican ………

Can you imagine if the lady below would have made that comment …. what do you think the press would have done?

Instead she made the following statement just last month:

Barack Obama; The Unauthorized Biography Of A Marxist – Obama’s Factual Family Story

OBAMA: The Unauthorized Biography – Part 1

Introduction 

Barack Obama’s first book, “Dreams of My Father” has been discussed at length in the popular press and by the Candidate himself. Unfortunately, the book and the discussions associated with book on broadcast media are short on fact and long on the fiction that the candidate has carefully manufactured about his past.

Obama, himself, gives the readers a “buyers beware” warning in the introduction to the reissued edition of “Dreams”. Obama notes the dangers of writing an autobiography include “the temptation to color events in ways favorable to the writer … [and] selective lapses of memory.” Obama states, “I can’t say that I’ve avoided all, or any, of these hazards successfully.” 

My question, did candidate Obama even make an attempt to avoid the temptation?  http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/chi-0703250359mar25-archive,0,546290.story

In “Dreams” Obama distorts many of the truths concerning his youth to serve his own self interest. The Chicago Tribune noted, “Still, the story of his early years highlights how politics and autobiography are similar creatures: Each is shaped to serve a purpose.” http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/chi-0703250359mar25-archive,0,546290.story   I wonder what the Tribune writer meant, in plain words? That Obama shaped his autobiography to serve Obama’s political purpose? Yes, I would agree, if that is what the writer intended to say.  

A Washington Post author noted, “Dreams From My Father” is as imprecise as it is insightful about Obama’s early life”. This writer believes the “imprecision” speaks volumes about Obama, the man and the candidate.  The Post author goes on to state, “… he readily acknowledged, he rearranged the chronology for his literary purposes and presented a cast of characters made up of composites and pseudonyms”                                                                                http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/08/23/AR2008082301620_pf.html

In “Dreams” Obama puts words spoken by adult, radical leftists, into the mouths of his classmates who deny ever having had the discussions attributed to them in his book.  http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/chi-0703250359mar25-archive,0,546290.story

In “Dreams” Obama paints a portrait of a  “youth living in a distant land searches[ing] and finds new friends, a new language and a heartbreaking lesson about his identity in the pages of an American magazine.” Researchers later determine that this claim is, at a minimum, factually incorrect. Why let a bald face lie get in the way of telling a good story? http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/chi-0703250359mar25-archive,0,546290.story?page=2  Some have suggested that this “lie” is actually a reference to the musician MICHAEL JACKSON.

Obama goes to great length in “Dream’s” to describe himself as “A young black man who struggles for acceptance at an institution of privilege, where he finds himself growing so angry and disillusioned at the world around him that he turned to alcohol and drugs.” http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/chi-0703250359mar25-archive,0,546290.story

Obama’s minority and mixed race friends at the Punahou School, an ultra-elite private school in Hawaii, failed to notice Obama’s anger over “race”, “social injustice” or “acceptance”. The direct quote from the Chicago Tribune writer is, “The handful of black students who attended Punahou School in Hawaii, for instance, say they struggled mightily with issues of race and racism there. But absent from those discussions, they say, was another student then known as Barry Obama.”  http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/chi-0703250359mar25-archive,0,546290.story?page=4

In “Dream’s” Obama neglects to mention the Bohemian/Marxist lifestyle practiced in his Grandparent’s home. Alcohol and marijuana use were a regular part of the Marxist social gatherings at the Dunham residence. Obama’s first expsoure to “chooming”, Hawaian slang for smoking pot, was not at school but at home.                                                        http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/chi-0703250359mar25-archive,0,546290.story?page=5

Frank Marshall Davis, a renowned Activist, Poet, Jass Musician, Labor Organizer and member of the Communist Party, United States of America (CPUSA), was a family friend and regular guest of the Dunham/Obama Family.

http://www.politicalaffairs.net/article/articleview/5047/1/32/

Maya Soetoro-Ng, Obama’s half-sister, told the Associated Press recently that her grandfather had seen Mr Davis was “a point of connection, a bridge if you will, to the larger African-American experience for my brother”, Barack Obama.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/uselection2008/barackobama/2601914/Frank-Marshall-Davis-alleged-Communist-was-early-influence-on-Barack-Obama.html

The record shows that the young Obama was in Hawaii from 1971-1979, where, at the age of 10 in 1971, he developed a close relationship, almost like a son, with Davis, listening to his “poetry” and getting advice on his career path. In “Dreams” , Obama refers to Davis  as “Frank.” http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=56859

There is some speculation that Frank Marshall Davis may, in fact, be Barack Obama’s true biological father. http://themountainsage.wordpress.com/2008/10/22/andy-martin-claims-barack-obama-is-son-of-frank-marshall-davis-jr/

At a minimum, Obama obtained a good deal of his ideology from Frank Marshall Davis. In a 2007 speech at the dedication of a Communist Party (CP) archive, “fellow traveler” and historian Gerald Horne, a professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, clarified the relationship between Obama and Davis, “……  http://www.politicalaffairs.net/article/articleview/5047/1/32/.

In “Dreams” Obama continues his family myth that Barack Obama, Sr, abandoned his family to attend Harvard University. The facts bring into question whether Barack Obama, Sr. and Stanley Ann Dunham were ever officially married. The facts also established that Stanley Ann took her infant son and abandoned Obama within weeks of the child’s birth. http://www.christianfaithandreason.com/obama3.html

In “Dreams” Obama claims his maternal grandparents were “conservative” “Methodists” or “Baptists” from Kansas. While this may have been true of his maternal great-grandparents, it is an absolutely false description of the grandparents who raised Obama. The Dunham’s abandoned the faiths of their parents and attended a Marxist Unitarian Church during his mother’s formative years.   http://www.christianfaithandreason.com/obama3.html 

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/obama/chi-0703270151mar27-archive,0,2623808.story?page=3

Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was an avowed Athiest not a Christian as Obama claims. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/08/23/AR2008082301620_pf.html 

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/obama/chi-0703270151mar27-archive,0,2623808.story

Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann was a Marist.    http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/politics/2004334057_obama08m.html

Obama’s grandparents moved their family to Mercer Island in Washington State to join a small but liberal community of Marxists.

Chapter 1 – Obama’s Maternal Grandparents:

Madelyn Payne, Obama’s maternal grandmother, was born in the oil boomtown of Augusta, Kansas, to stern Methodist parents who did not believe in drinking, playing cards or dancing. She was one of the best students in the graduating class of 1940. Her family were members of the well to do, white collar community. Madelyn, however, in ways that would foretell the flouting of conventions by her daughter Stanley Ann, was different.
“A bunch of us would go to Wichita, to the Blue Moon Dance Hall,” said Nina Parry, a classmate who still lives in Augusta. “We’d hear Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey and Glem Miller . . . . All the big bands came. It was wonderful.” Then Madelyn met Stanley. Stanley Armour Dunham is Barack Obama’s maternal grandfather. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/obama/chi-0703270151mar27-archive,0,2623808.story?page=2 
Four years older, Stanley Armour Dunham lived 17 miles east, in El Dorado. In 1920, El Dorado, with a population of 12,000, seemed to exist solely for the purpose of drilling holes in the ground. And for good reason. In 1918, the El Dorado field produced 9 percent of the world’s oil production. The Dunhams were Baptists. Unlike the Paynes, Stanley Dunham did not come from the white-collar crowd. Gregarious, friendly, challenging and loud, “he was such a loose wheel at times,” said Clarence Kerns, from the El Dorado class of 1935. Others who knew Dunham described him as a salesman “who could charm the legs off a couch.” http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/obama/chi-0703270151mar27-archive,0,2623808.story?page=2  His marriage to Madelyn was one of those that acquaintances said spanned both sides of the railroad tracks, and Stanley was always placed on the wrong side. They secretly married on the spring weekend of the annual junior-senior banquet in 1940, Madelyn’s senior year, several weeks before graduation, according to friends. Continuing to live with her parents, Madelyn didn’t tell them about her marriage until she got her diploma in June. The news was not a big hit at the Payne family home, but parental objections didn’t matter.

Obama writes the following about his Grandfather, “When he was 8 years old, Stanley Armour Dunham found his mother’s body. It was 1926, and Ruth Armour Dunham had committed suicide at the age of 26.” Barack Obama has written that that tragic discovery might have contributed to making his grandfather “a bit wild” as a teenager in Wichita, Kansas. Obama alleges that after his grandfather was kicked out of high school “for punching the principal in the nose.” Obama also claims that the man Obama would later know as “Gramps” hopped freight trains and dabbled in “moonshine, cards and women.”

When World War II came in December 1941, Stanley enlisted in the Army. Madelyn became a Rosie-the-Riveter at Boeing Co.’s B-29 production plant in Wichita, Kansas. The Dunham’s only child, Stanley Ann Dunham, Barack Obama’s mother, arrived in late November 1942. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/obama/chi-0703270151mar27-archive,0,2623808.story?page=2

The Dunhams were full-time working parents, renters and strugglers in pursuit of the next opportunity. After the war, Madelyn worked in restaurants while Stanley managed a furniture store on Main Street in El Dorado, Kansas.  http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/obama/chi-0703270151mar27-archive,0,2623808.story?page=2
In 1955 Stanley Dunham began work at  a “large store in downtown Seattle called Standard-Grunbaum Furniture at the corner of 2nd Avenue and Pine Street. “First in Furniture, Second at Pine,” read the Yellow Pages ad in the Seattle telephone directory.” http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/obama/chi-0703270151mar27-archive,0,2623808.story?page=2 

Madelyn went to work at a bank as an escrow officer.  

The Dunham’s settled on Mercer Island and enrolled their daughter, Stanley Ann, in the new highschool.
The Chicago Tribune author goes on to quote one of Stanley Ann’s childhood friends when he writes, “The island was quiet, politically conservative and all white.” http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/obama/chi-0703270151mar27-archive,0,2623808.story?page=2
While Mercer Island was quiet and nearly all white, it was anything but conservative.

The furniture store where Stanley Dunham worked, “Standard-Grunbaum Furniture at the corner of 2nd Avenue and Pine Street” was located down the street from the Regional Headquarters of the Communist Party USA. That headquarters was located at 1016 1/2 Second. In 1948, during testimony before the Un-American Activities in Washington State Investigation, the Communist Party’s Seattle headquarters was identified as being located at 1916 Second Ave, between Stewart Street and Pine Streets. The CPUSA party headquarters had been located in that area for at least 7 years.

It is not an anti-communist site.

http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/politics/2004334057_obama08m.html 

In 1955 the Chairman of the Mercer Island School Board was John Stenhouse, an admitted member of the Communist Party, USA (CPUSA).  http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,891423-1,00.html. Mr Stenhouse was a British immigrant who was born (DOB:1908) and raised in China. 

Stenhouse’s testimony/confession to being a Communist was featured in the April 15, 1955 issue of Time Magazine.  Two months later the Dunham’s enrolled their daughter, Stanley Ann, in the Mercer Island highschool which was under the direction of Stenhouse. Two of Stanley Ann’s teachers at this school were avowed Marxists.

John Stenhouse was also the President of Eastshore Unitarian Church, frequently referred to as the “Little Red Church on the Hill”. The church’s nickname was related to the congregations  Marxist/Leninist beliefs. Peter Luton, the church’s current senior minister discussed the church’s Marxist history with the Chicago Tribune.

On the campaign trail Obama refers to his maternal grandparents as “conservative Methodists or Baptists from Kansas”, most writers are forced to disagree with that assertion. It simply is not supported by the facts. Even the Chicago Tribune notes the Duham’s had shed their Baptist and Methodist beliefs prior to reaching Mercer Island.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/obama/chi-0703270151mar27-archive,0,2623808.story?page=3

http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/print.asp?ID=8776

On the campaign trail, Obama describes his mother this way, “My mother was a Christian from Kansas…”, “the only daughter of parents who grew up in the “dab-smack, landlocked center of the country,” in towns “too small to warrant boldface on a roadmap.” …….. Clearly, both of these statements are lies. Even the Chicago Tribune noted, “Implicit in that portrayal is this message: If you have any lingering questions or doubts about the Hawaiian-born presidential candidate with a funny name, just remember that Mom hails from America’s good earth.” The Tribune goes on to note, “That presentation, though, glosses over Stanley Ann Dunham’s formative years, spent not on the Great Plains but more than 1,800 miles away on a small island in the Pacific Northwest.” http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/obama/chi-0703270151mar27-archive,0,2623808.story

In “Dreams” Obama contradicts his campaign speeches when he states, “I was not raised in a religious household… My mother’s own experiences… only reinforced this inherited skepticism. Her memories of the Christians who populated her youth were not fond ones ….”  http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1546298,00.html

The truth of the story is something else ……….

Chapter 2: Stanley Ann Dunham – Obama’s mother

Very little has been written about Stanley Ann Dunham prior to her arrival on Mercer Island and the beginnning of her highschool years in 1955.

Articles state that Stanley Ann was born in November 1942, 11 months after the start of WWII, while her father was away serving in the US Army. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/obama/chi-0703270151mar27-archive,0,2623808.story?page=2

After leaving Kansas when she was a youngster, she and her parents lived in Berkeley, Calif., for two years, Ponca City, Okla., for two years, and Wichita Falls, Tex., for three years before they ventured to the Seattle area.                                                                             http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/08/23/AR2008082301620_pf.html
 
Stanley Ann finished the 8th grade at Bellevue Washington’s Eckstein Middle School in June 1955. She began highschool the next September. Stanley Ann’s friends from Mercer Island remember her well. “She touted herself as an atheist, and it was something she’d read about and could argue,” said Maxine Box, who was Dunham’s best friend in high school. “She was always challenging and arguing and comparing. She was already thinking about things that the rest of us hadn’t.” http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/obama/chi-0703270151mar27-archive,0,2623808.story
 

Dunham has been described by her friends as “a fellow traveler…” a slang term of the 1950’s used to refer to a communist or communist sympathizer who had not publicly acknowledged their Party membership. The term “fellow traveler” was not a derogatory term nor was it used by anti-communists. http://www.tedmontgomery.com/remarks/ObamaClinton/Barack’smother/index.html  http://www.hawaii.edu/uhwo/clear/HonoluluRecord1/frankblog1949.html

 

One of Stanley Ann’s Mercer Island friends, Susan Botkin. recalled her directness, “in those days she dealt head-on with her uncommon first name. No sense trying to hide it, even though she hated it. “My name is Stanley,” she would say. “My father wanted a boy, and that’s that.” Her mother softened it, calling her Stanny or Stanny Ann, but at school she was Stanley, straight up. “She owned the name,” recalled Susan Botkin, one of her first pals on Mercer Island. “Only once or twice was she teased. She had a sharp tongue, a deep wit, and she could kill. We all called her Stanley.”” http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/08/23/AR2008082301620_pf.html  In a high school culture of brawn and beauty, Stanley was one of the brains. Often struggling with her weight, and wearing braces her junior year, she had the normal teenage anxieties. John W. Hunt said those traits allowed Stanley to become accepted by the predominantly male intellectual crowd, even though she had a soft voice.                                                          http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/08/23/AR2008082301620_pf.html 

 
 

 

Stanley was decidedly liberal. She was encouraged in her Liberal beliefs, not just by her parents but by Mr Stenhouse the Chairman of the school board and by two of her teachers at Mercer Island High, Jim Wichterman and Val Foubert. These teachers taught advanced humanities courses open to the top 25 students. The assigned reading included not only Plato and Aristotle, Kierkegaard and Sartre, but also late-1950s critiques of societal conventions, such as “The Organization Man” by William H. Whyte, “The Lonely Crowd” by David Riesman and “The Hidden Persuaders” by Vance Packard, as well as the political theories of Hegel and Mill and Marx.   http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/08/23/AR2008082301620_pf.html  
A wing of Mercer Island High was nicknamed “anarchy alley” because of the teachings of Jim Wichterman and Val Foubert. http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/politics/2004334057_obama08m.html  
In speaking with the Seattle Times Wichterman said, “Dunham thrived in the environment”. “As much as a high-school student can, she’d question anything: What’s so good about democracy? What’s so good about capitalism? What’s wrong with communism? What’s good about communism?” http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/politics/2004334057_obama08m.html
Obama visited the Seattle area last October, and in a speech to a Democratic Party rally at Bellevue Community College, he mentioned that his mother attended Mercer Island High School before moving on to Hawaii. In “Dreams,” Obama wrote that the family moved to Seattle “long enough for my mother to finish high school.” The Chicago Tribune noted that, “her stop was more than some educational cup of coffee; Obama’s mother spent 8th grade through high school here. Four of those five years were spent on Mercer Island.  http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/obama/chi-0703270151mar27-archive,0,2623808.story Those years served to reinforce the Marxist unbringing Stanley Ann received at home. 
 
The Chicago Tribune noted that Wichterman also touched the societal third rail of the 1950s: He questioned the existence of God. He didn’t stop there, “”I had them read ‘The Communist Manifesto,’ and the parents went nuts,” said Wichterman, adding that parents also didn’t want any discussions about “anything to do with sex,” religion and theology. The parental protests were known as “mothers’ marches.” http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/obama/chi-0703270151mar27  The Dunhams did not join the uproar. Madelyn and Stanley had shed their Methodist and Baptist upbringing prior to arriving on Mercer Island or joining the East Shore Unitarian Church where Stenhouse was President.

Stanley Ann’s friends remember her fondness for poetry, jass music and the coffee house scene. “Dunham gravitated toward an intellectual clique. According to former classmate Chip Wall, she caught foreign films at Seattle’s only art-house theater, the Ridgemont, and trekked to University District coffee shops like the Encore to talk about jazz, the value of learning from other cultures and the “very dull Eisenhower-ness of our parents.”

http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/politics/2004334057_obama08m.html

“If you were concerned about something going wrong in the world, Stanley would know about it first,” said Chip Wall, who described her as “a fellow traveler“. . . . We were liberals before we knew what liberals were.” http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/obama/chi-0703270151mar27-archive,0,2623808.story?page=3
 
 

 

Sometime prior to Stanley Ann’s graduation in June 1960, her father Stanley travelled to Hawaii and secured employment at a new funiture store and arranged for living quarters for his family. As graduation neared for the class of 1960, Dunham had hoped to join many of her classmates at the University of Washington, however, Stanley Ann did not know of her father’s plan to move the family. http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/politics/2004334057_obama08m.html

In “Dreams” Obama claims his mother was accepted at the University of Chicago, however, there is no documentation to prove this claim. It is an interesting coincidence given the role that the city of Chicago plays both in Obama’s later life and its connection to those who will influence Obama’s life as a young man.

Stanley Ann’s friend’s don’t recall her mentioning the University of Chicago. They recall a desire to stay and attend the University of Washington or U-Dub as they referred to it. Maxine Box told the Chicago tribune, “I remember she didn’t want to go to Hawaii.” None the less, shortly after her graduation in June 1960, Stanley Ann Dunham moved with her parents to Hawaii. Fourteen short months later Barack Hussein Obama would be born. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/obama/chi-0703270151mar27-archive,0,2623808.story?page=3

Obama’s Middle Class Tax Increase – Data from The Wall Street Journal

WE HAVE ALL HEARD ABOUT THE 95% OF AMERICA WHO WILL GET A TAX CUT (A DISHONEST CLAIM AS THE BOTTOM 40% DOESN’T PAY TAXES). THE REAL QUESTION WHO WILL ACTUALLY PAY FOR THESE PROGRAMS –

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

  • OCTOBER 22, 2008
  • Obama and the Tax Tipping Point

    How long before taxpayers are pushed too far?

    What happens when the voter in the exact middle of the earnings spectrum receives more in benefits from Washington than he pays in taxes? Economists Allan Meltzer and Scott Richard posed this question 27 years ago. We may soon enough know the answer.

    Barack Obama is offering voters strong incentives to support higher taxes and bigger government. This could be the magic income-redistribution formula Democrats have long sought.

    Sen. Obama is promising $500 and $1,000 gift-wrapped packets of money in the form of refundable tax credits. These will shift the tax demographics to the tipping point where half of all voters will receive a cash windfall from Washington and an overwhelming majority will gain from tax hikes and more government spending.

    In 2006, the latest year for which we have Census data, 220 million Americans were eligible to vote and 89 million — 40% — paid no income taxes. According to the Tax Policy Center (a joint venture of the Brookings Institution and the Urban Institute), this will jump to 49% when Mr. Obama’s cash credits remove 18 million more voters from the tax rolls. What’s more, there are an additional 24 million taxpayers (11% of the electorate) who will pay a minimal amount of income taxes — less than 5% of their income and less than $1,000 annually.

    In all, three out of every five voters will pay little or nothing in income taxes under Mr. Obama’s plans and gain when taxes rise on the 40% that already pays 95% of income tax revenues.

    The plunder that the Democrats plan to extract from the “very rich” — the 5% that earn more than $250,000 and who already pay 60% of the federal income tax bill — will never stretch to cover the expansive programs Mr. Obama promises.

    What next? A core group of Obama enthusiasts — those educated professionals who applaud the “fairness” of their candidate’s tax plans — will soon see their $100,000-$150,000 incomes targeted. As entitlements expand and a self-interested majority votes, the higher tax brackets will kick in at lower levels down the ladder, all the way to households with a $75,000 income.

    Other nations have tried the ideology of fairness in the place of incentives and found that reward without work is a recipe for decline. In the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s, Margaret Thatcher took on the unions and slashed taxes to restore growth and jobs in Great Britain. In Germany a few years ago, Social Democrat Gerhard Schroeder defied his party’s dogma and loosened labor’s grip on the economy to end stagnation. And more recently in France, Nicolas Sarkozy was swept to power on a platform of restoring flexibility to the economy.

    The sequence is always the same. High-tax, big-spending policies force the economy to lose momentum. Then growth in government spending outstrips revenues. Fiscal and trade deficits soar. Public debt, excessive taxation and unemployment follow. The central bank tries to solve the problem by printing money. International competitiveness is lost and the currency depreciates. The system stagnates. And then a frightened electorate returns conservatives to power.

    MCAULEYSWORLDWEBLOG NOTE: Look to the State of Michigan as an example – Governor Granholm  implemented an Obama style Tax policy 6 years ago – minus any middle class tax cut -the promises of middle class tax cuts evaporated as revenues flew out of the state and State spending escalated. For more on the Michigan example: https://mcauleysworld.wordpress.com/2008/09/08/michigans-dem-governor-granholm-appoves-of-obama-tax-policy-matches-her-policies-of-last-6-yrs/   

    The economic tides will not stand still while Washington experiments with European-type social democracy, even though the dollar’s role as the global reserve currency will buy some time. Our trademark competitive advantage will be lost, and once lost, it will be hard to regain. There are too many emerging economies focused on prosperity and not redistribution for the U.S. to easily recapture its role of global economic leader.

    Tomorrow’s children may come to question why their parents sold their birthright for a mess of “fairness” — whatever that will signify when jobs are scarce and American opportunity is no longer the envy of the world.

    WASHINGTON — Vice presidential candidate Joe Biden says today’s leaders should take a lesson from the history books and follow fellow Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt’s response to a financial crisis.

    “When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened,”‘ Barack Obama’s running mate recently told the “CBS Evening News.”

    Except, Republican Herbert Hoover was in office when the stock market crashed in October 1929. There also was no television at the time; TV wasn’t introduced to the public until a decade later, at the 1939 World’s Fair.

    FDR was elected three years later when voters denied Hoover a second term. The Democratic challenger appealed to the “forgotten man” by promising a “new deal” to solve the Depression era.

    Biden was commenting on the stock market crash when he said leaders should explain the current economic crisis and how to solve it to the public. 

    “Part of what being a leader does is to instill confidence, is to demonstrate what he or she knows what they are talking about and to communicating to people … this is how we can fix this,” Biden said.

    Update on SNL Incest Insult to the Palins

    MEDIA MATTERS
    NBC jokes: Todd Palin has sex with daughters
    ‘Saturday Night Live’ skit suggests Sarah’s husband guilty of incest

    A week after a high-profile send-up of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin on “Saturday Night Live,” the NBC comedy show returned to making fun of the Alaskan governor in a skit where New York Times reporters sought to probe the possibility Palin’s husband, Todd, was having sex with the couple’s own daughters.

    “What about the husband?” asked a Times reporter during a mock assignment meeting for the paper. “You know he’s doing those daughters. I mean, come on. It’s Alaska.

    The assignment editor for the Times, portrayed by actor James Franco, responded: “He very well could be. Admittedly, there is no evidence of that, but on the other hand, there is no convincing evidence to the contrary. And these are just some of the lingering questions about Governor Palin.”

    The skit featured a photo of one reporter and an on-screen message that stated, “In 2009 [reporter] Howland Gwathmey Moss, V was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his Times series on unproven, yet un-disproven incest in the Palin family. Sadly, he was to die 3 months later, run over by a snow machine, driven by a polar bear.”

    The final shot showed an image of a New York Times page, with headlines that included:

    “While No Direct Evidence of Incest in Palin Family Emerges, Counter Evidence Remains Agonizingly Elusive” and “In a Small Alaska Town, Doubts Still Linger.”

    The sketch seemed to be designed to mock how out of touch journalists from the Big Apple are when it comes to their knowledge of Alaska, with left-leaning, Manhattan-dwelling reporters mistaking a snowmobile for a “baptizing machine,” a crucifix and a NordicTrack exerciser in photographs held up for them.

    Some viewers expressed outrage.

    “It is time the Palin family brought out the big guns. They need to sue General Electric, NBC, ‘Saturday Night Live,'” said Al Barrs of Bascom, Fla. “This is clearly criminal and defamation of character of an entire family and state. All the above needs to be taken to their knees big time once and for all.”

    “What if somebody did one with this kind of humor on Obama and his daughters?” asked Jim Cash of Chattanooga, Tenn. “What an uproar there would be. This line of humor is tasteless and moronic and about as low as they could go. There simply must be an uproar over this. We cannot let this just pass.”

    NBC’s website for “Saturday Night Live” normally contains video clips of the show’s comedy routines, but, interestingly, the clip of the incest sketch was never posted online.

    THE VIDEO CLIP WAS REMOVED FROM THE SITE CONTAINING THIS ARTICLE – TWO
    VERSIONS HAVE BEEN REMOVED BY UTUBE.

    The only thing worse than the scummy attacks on the Palins and McCains is the liberal press’ failure to call Candidate Obama on his falsehood and misrepresentations. Can you imagine if 3 McCain advisors had been involved with wrong doing at Fannie Mae, had been charged with lying to Congress, “cooking the books”, taking illegal loans, and falsifying records to obtain a bonus – What would be the press reaction. There has ben no reaction to Obama’s Advisors – Jim Johnson, Franklin Raines and Tim Howard.

    Heck, there has been more coverage on Obama’s smear of McCain Campaign Manager Rick Davis – A lobbyist who has never ever been accused of wrong doing. The liberal press will trea an honest man with contempt is he is a conservatibve and excsue a felon – thief – and liar as long as he is a liberal.    

    SNL Palin Incest Attack – It can’t get any lower!

    Politics you can believe in!  You think so?   Its time to boycott NBC.

    SNL’ Palin-Incest Joke Falls Flat In Sketch Lampooning New York Times

    In Saturday Night Live’s second attempt to mock this year’s vice presidential race, a sketch lampooning The New York Times as out of touch has instead touched off a firestorm by throwing out a much more insidious inference — incest — between Todd Palin and his pregnant, teenage daughter, Bristol.

    While SNL fans had widely anticipated the return of Tina Fey in an edgy yet endearing role as Sarah Palin, Saturday’s sketch has managed to reignite the furor sparked by claims early this month that the Republican vice presidential candidate is not the mother of her 5-month-old son, Trig.

    The sketch, say supporters, was supposed to accentuate how disconnected The New York Times is from anything west of the Hudson River, particularly Alaska. But critics say that the sketch backfired by suggesting that Todd Palin committed incest.

    In the sketch, New York Times reporters are sitting around an assignment meeting discussing what about Palin to investigate next.

    One reporter asks: “What about the husband? You know he’s doing those daughters. I mean, come on. It’s Alaska.”

    Guest host James Franco, who played the assignment editor, sets up the joke of proving a negative, saying, “He very well could be. Admittedly, there is no evidence of that, but on the other hand, there is no convincing evidence to the contrary. And these are just some of the lingering questions about Governor Palin.”

    After three of the reporters agree to go to Alaska, one sues for sexual discrimination after being called “sweetie” by a school board member, one is killed by a polar bear and a final reporter wins a Pulitzer for “unproven, yet un-disproven incest in the Palin family” and then is killed by a polar bear driving a “snow machine.”

    The final shot in the rambling joke is an image of a New York Times page, featuring headlines: “While No Direct Evidence of Incest in Palin Family Emerges, Counter Evidence Remains Agonizingly Elusive” and “In a Small Alaska Town, Doubts Still Linger.”

    Conservative bloggers are infuriated over the incest joke, most particularly because it plays off claims earlier this month that 17-year-old Bristol Palin is the mother of Trig Palin.

    Bristol Palin is five months pregnant and therefore could not be Trig’s mother, John McCain’s campaign noted earlier this month in efforts to diffuse widespread and unfounded gossip that surrounded Trig’s maternity.

    Still, left-wing conspirators dissatisfied with that response, have argued that Trig Palin, who was born with Down syndrome, a much more frequent occurrence in women over 40, could have been the outcome of incest, which also increases the odds of the disability.

    Now, some bloggers are urging protests of the show be sent to producer Lorne Michaels. The video was not posted on the SNL Web site.

    John McCain 2006 – Warning On Current Housing Crisis

    FEDERAL HOUSING ENTERPRISE REGULATORY REFORM ACT OF 2005

    The United States Senate

    May 25, 2006

    Section 16

    Mr. President, this week Fannie Mae’s regulator reported that the company’s quarterly reports of profit growth over the past few years were “illusions deliberately and systematically created” by the company’s senior management, which resulted in a $10.6 billion accounting scandal.

    The Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight’s report goes on to say that Fannie Mae employees deliberately and intentionally manipulated financial reports to hit earnings targets in order to trigger bonuses for senior executives. In the case of Franklin Raines, Fannie Mae’s former chief executive officer, OFHEO’s report shows that over half of Mr. Raines’ compensation for the 6 years through 2003 was directly tied to meeting earnings targets. The report of financial misconduct at Fannie Mae echoes the deeply troubling $5 billion profit restatement at Freddie Mac.

    The OFHEO report also states that Fannie Mae used its political power to lobby Congress in an effort to interfere with the regulator’s examination of the company’s accounting problems. This report comes some weeks after Freddie Mac paid a record $3.8 million fine in a settlement with the Federal Election Commission and restated lobbying disclosure reports from 2004 to 2005. These are entities that have demonstrated over and over again that they are deeply in need of reform.

    For years I have been concerned about the regulatory structure that governs Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac–known as Government-sponsored entities or GSEs–and the sheer magnitude of these companies and the role they play in the housing market. OFHEO’s report this week does nothing to ease these concerns. In fact, the report does quite the contrary. OFHEO’s report solidifies my view that the GSEs need to be reformed without delay.

    I join as a cosponsor of the Federal Housing Enterprise Regulatory Reform Act of 2005, S. 190, to underscore my support for quick passage of GSE regulatory reform legislation. If Congress does not act, American taxpayers will continue to be exposed to the enormous risk that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac pose to the housing market, the overall financial system, and the economy as a whole.

    I urge my colleagues to support swift action on this GSE reform legislation.

    The Deocrats Killed this measure in Committee preventing a full Senate Vote.

    Barack Obama voted against this reform.
