In 2006 this was the Song that kept us all Fired Up...I dare you show it to one idiot that is voting for McCoot....We CAN DO THIS...We can help Obama win this Election....because we are in BIG trouble...and the MSM is still blinded with their man crush or whatever....BUT in 2006 it was Bloggers and those People reading the Internets that Made the Difference....
Think of ALL the stories that the Midnight Bloggers have pounded the Downing Street Memo, the Lies about WMD, the 911 Story and the need for an Investigation, Katrina, Abu Gahrib, Gitmo, the Tillman Story, Plamegate,Katrina Trailers, Missing Money in Iraq, Crappy VET Care and PTSD, Global Warming, Stolen Elections of 2000 and 2004, Keith 's Special Comments,...
THE POWER IS YOU....WE ARE THE CHANGE WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR....now get out there bang doors, blog, talk to your neighbors....
About the Bailout call your reps in DC tell them that you support Dodd's Plan not the Paulson Slushfund..... not sure of Dodd's Plan here goes you know what to do....especially about the 32 damn words.
2:33PM:::: OBAMA GIVING PRESSER IN TAMPA( BEFORE A RALLY) ABOUT THE FINANCIAL MESS...EXCELLENT SPEECH- AND NOW TAKING QUESTIONS, I WILL PUT IT UP WHEN I FIND IT ON YOUTUBE. He came out strong for ORDINARY FOLKS...The Hearings have been grueling...stock market has been dumping all day. Obama made it very clear that the Bailout is NOT to bailout CEO"S and their Golden Parachutes....Chris Dodd just sent an Emergency Note out to the AP- that the PLAN AS is Not acceptable ( read by Nora O'Donnell on MSNBC ). From watching the Hearings, ALL of those present were asking questions about effects on Citizens and Taxpayers. ( at the same time the news broke that the CEOS were balking at the programs being offered apparently they don't want to lose or compromise on their severance packages or bonuses).
PART OF THE VIDEO: ( AP 1:42 minutes, I will post the rest when I can find it )Obama very calm, thoughtful, but firm that the Real Folks were not about to get screwed or forgotten in this process....
Best Line in this Presser- The Messege for the CEO"s::::
"There has been talk that some CEOs may refuse to cooperate with this plan if they have to forgo multi-million-dollar salaries. I cannot imagine a position more selfish and greedy at a time of national crisis. And I would like to speak directly to those CEOs right now: Do not make that mistake. You are stewards for workers and communities all across our country who have put their trust in you. With the enormous rewards you have reaped come responsibilities, and we expect and demand that you to live up to them. This plan cannot be a welfare program for Wall Street executives."
Obama New Ad About McCains 13 Cars::::
So over on FOX, Shep is reporting that FBI is beginning Investigations into Fraud at Lehman, AGI and Two Other Institutions....
Susposedly Upper Management.....I will try to find more about this....( Hmmm, makes that Paulson 32 WORDS a little more interesting...) Okay the First Article has appeared about Lehman, AIG, and Fannie, and Freddie are to be investigated for Fraud,
by the FBI. Gee If Mr.Paulson has his way with his 32 Words there would have been NO Investigation .....Ponder that.
( More from Huffpost about the FBI Investigation of the Banking Entities and Potential Fraud.)
Snippet from the Article :
"Just last week, FBI Director Robert Mueller put the number of large financial firms under investigation at 24. He did not name any of the companies under investigation but said the FBI also was looking at whether any of them have misrepresented their assets.
Over the past year as the housing market cratered, the FBI has opened a wide-ranging probe of companies across the financial services industry, from mortgage lenders to investment banks that bundle home loans into securities sold to investors. Mueller has previously said the FBI's hunt for culprits in the nation's subprime mortgage crisis focused on accounting fraud, insider trading, and failure to disclose the value of mortgage-related securities and other investments."
( Footnote now it is up to 26 Companies
MORE from other article:::
"Additionally, the FBI is investigating failed bank IndyMac Bancorp Inc. for possible fraud. Countrywide Financial Corp., formerly the nation's largest mortgage lender and now owned by Bank of America Corp., is also under scrutiny."
