Obama Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac meltdown statement

| 2 Comments

"Senator Obama has long believed we should take all necessary steps to ensure affordable homeownership for millions of American families, and that includes an essential role for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Nearly a year ago, Senator Obama called for a major response to the housing crisis and significant relief for struggling homeowners. It took Senator McCain three different tries to figure out a real response to the housing crisis, and his current plan does nothing to help more than two million homeowners who are facing foreclosure," said Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton.

This $100,000. grant is typical of that community elected politicians. We have voted into office people that through money around intoxicated mariners. The sad part is that they are not answerable to the people that put them in office. For example look at the Cook County Board and the Daley Administration.

MCCAIN'S ELEVATOR DOESN'T GO ALL THE WAY UP, SO WHAT DO YOU EXPECT!
HE MEANS WELL, BUT HE HAS MENTAL DEFECTS, THAT WON'T ALLOW HIM TO
ANALYZE THINGS IN AN APPROPRIATE TIME MEASURE, THAT'S WHY HE
SHOULD NOT BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!
ANY PERSON WHO IS IN FORECLOSURE AND DOESN'T VOTE FOR OBAMA,
WELL I'M SORRY FOR WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH, BUT OBAMA IS THE
ONLY CANDIDATE WHO CAN GET AMERICA BACK ON TRACK!
