Repost: McCain’s task tonight – no more Mr. “Bipartisan” on Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac
Bring up Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac repeatedly (don’t wait for the moderator to bring it up) and hit him (and his fellow Democrats) hard during tomorrow’s debate and the debate afterward. Tell of the contributions, of his work for ACORN suing CitiGroup for rightfully not giving loans to people who could not pay them back. Attach his name to Fannie Mae CEOs Jim Johnson | Read More »
Focusing so much on Obama and Ayers instead of Obama and Fannie Mae CEOs Johnson/Raines is a big mistake.
The McCain Campaign and the GOP should be pounding Obama on both associations, but considering the economic turmoil is what is at the top of the headlines, Obama’s connections with Fannie Mae CEOs Johnson and Raines should be receiving a hell of a lot more attention. What’s more, the Ayers issue does nothing for the races down the ballot. The Democrats own this crisis – | Read More »

“.. b .. b .. but … but … but Rick Davis …!”

Meaning that he had nothing to do with Fannie Mae’s shady business practices, questionable accounting and their knowingly underwriting a massive amount of bad loans. And even then, John McCain still put forward | Read More »
McCain Now Has To Follow Through …
So McCain has finally(!) seen the light on letting Obama and the Democrats off the hook for their enabling of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. I sincerely hope he fired whoever it was that told him it was a good idea to cower behind “Bipartisanship” and hope the issue goes away (sure does sound familiar, don’t it?). The only issue now is whether he would | Read More »
BREAKING NEWS: John McCain Just Threw In The Towel.
McCain campaign officials have apparently informed James Pethokoukis that John McCain, most likely after taking the advice of some of the many former Bush aides that have somehow managed to get themselves hired by his campaign, has decided to adopt the “New Tone” and go easy on the Democrats and the huge role they played in creating the financial crisis together with Fannie, Freddie and | Read More »
Psst! Senator McCain, A Debate Is No Time For “Bipartisanship!”
When the time came for McCain to let the American know how the current crisis came about, he demurred and instead went populist, going on and on abstractly about Wall Street and greed, when the fact is that financial houses were compelled to give housing loans to people with little prospect of paying it back. The role played by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in | Read More »
