President Bush has been in hiding lately; staying out of sight and out of the minds of the 70%+ voters who disapprove of his performance as President.
The basic reasoning: the less people think about Bush, the more likely they are to vote for John McCain in November.
The events of this week, however, have forced Mr. Bush out of hiding. And by “events” I mean the complete and total meltdown of the US economy.
I don’t think anyone could have expected something like this to happen. Certainly not under the strong fiscal leadership of George Bush. He is, after […]Full Story... →
So taxpayers are about to pay $500 billion o $1 trillion dollars at the request of the Bush administration to bail out private enterprise. We now own (you and I) 80% of AIG after we gave them $85 billion. I do expect to begin seeing some kind of dividend check at some point. Right.
Can we stop talking about “free markets” yet?
This is one hell of a way to save John “Dishonorable” McCain – and the guy can’t even figure out which angle to take on this. LOL. Is he a regulator or a de-regulator? Is he […]Full Story... →
Here it comes. The subtle that will at some point become overt. You have to ask yourself why Raines was chosen for the ad instead of a much juicier (and white) target. Kinda makes you go “hmmm”:

Totally sure.Full Story... →

One of the larger charities mentioned by the American Institute of Philantrophy report was The American Veterans Relief Foundation. According to a Fox news report, for every $100 contributed, only $16 ended up going to veterans and $84 was spent on operations expenses, such as salaries and marketing.

Seriously. This seems pretty stupid given recent events of massive government bailouts to save banks (cough…Keating…cough…5):
Republican presidential nominee John McCain sparked a furious exchange of campaign attacks Thursday night with the release of a television ad linking Democratic nominee Barack Obama to a former Fannie Mae chief who was forced out by an accounting scandal.
The ad accuses Obama of using Franklin Raines as an adviser, a claim based on a July Washington Post profile of Raines that reported he had ?taken calls from Barack Obama ?s presidential campaign seeking his advice on mortgage and housing policy matters.?
