Well – tomorrow night is the last Presidential debate and McCain currently trails Obama by 6 points in the polls and he’s trailing behind in all of the battleground states. The good news is that Ronald Reagan was trailing Jimmy Carter even 5 days before the 1980 elections.
After last night – I truly realized what an uphill battle McCain has. As Mrs. BoBo and I were watching the boob-tube there was a McCain ad running regarding the Obama-Ayers connection. She asked me who Ayers was!!! I learned two things last night: 1.) If members of my own household don’t know about the Ayers connection then there has to be millions more out there that don’t know about it, and 2.) Apparently, Mrs. BoBo has learned how to tune me out when I go on my political rants at home – cuz – I know I brought this up many many times!!!!
So – in tomorrow night’s debate and in the remaining days of this campaign McCain needs to hit these connections hard – because – the only way to get the media talking about these are for it to come up during the debate. He needs to keep pointing out these connections over and over:
OBAMA & ACORN
There have been enough stories out there than connect him with this fraudulent organization that he needs to keep pointing them out. He paid them $800,000 during this campaign to provide voter registration services – and – he paid them through a shell corporation.
He was their attorney when they sued the state of Illinois to enforce a housing law that would coerce mortgage lenders in to loaning unqualified people money for homes they could never afford.
His “community organizer” experience comes as an employee for ACORN. He was the director of the Voter Registration Canvassing teams in Chicago. It wouldn’t surprise me if there were fraudulent voter registrations under his watch either. They are well known for committing these crimes in the past three national elections!!! I wonder just how far back it goes?
OBAMA & AYERS
McCain needs to keep hammering this connection until it sets in. Obama’s excuse that Ayers bombed the Pentagon, a NY police station, and attempted to blow up the capital when he was 8 years old doesn’t fly. He knows who this guy is and was when he first met him.
They served on the Annenburg Challenge together for 7 years. Ayers personally selected Obama to be the Chair of that board. When Obama became a state senator – he helped funnel several millions of dollars to the Annenburg Challenge and Ayers.
They served together on The Woods Foundation for two years.
Obama kicked off his political career at a party hosted at Ayers home in 1995. Obama was the invited guest of honor. This was not coincidental.
Michelle Obama worked in the same lawfirm as Ayers’ wife. Still think it’s a coincidence?
Ayers and his wife live in the same neighborhood as the Obamas and they Ayers’ have babysat for the Obamas. I’m sorry – but this is not just a fleeting association. These two families are great friends and have been friends for quite some time.
On September 12, 2001 – Ayers was quoted in the New York Times as saying he didn’t they (The Weather Underground) didn’t do enough (when they set bombs) and wished he had done more. Obama was still friends and associated with this guy even after that. His last known association was in 2007 – apparently, Obama pushed this friendship aside for political expediency.
OBAMA & FANNIE MAE/FREDDIE MAC
It is a matter of public record that Obama – as a Junior Senator – has been the #2 recipient of political contributions from Fannie & Freddie – behind Chris Dodds.
It is also a matter of public record that shows that Obama was complicit in obstructing Republican attempts at reforming Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac by voting against all reform measures.
The only thing that Obama was concerned about with regards to Fannie and Freddie was making sure his buddies Jim Johnson and Franklin Raines continued to line their pockets in return for those politicial contributions. Even after Raines and Johnson were fired for “cooking the books” Obama still voted against reform measures.
OBAMA & JIM JOHNSON
Jim Johnson served on Obama’s Vice Presidential search committee. Johnson was the CEO of Fannie Mae and was reported to have received “favorable” loans from Countrywide – “The Friends of Mozilo” that includes Senator Chris Dodd. He received jumbo-loans that were below market rates – part of the mortgage mess that we find ourselves in now.
Johnson had to step down from Obama’s search committee after his connection to Mozilo and the Countrywide home loans came to light. Seems to me that Obama keeps surrounding himself with shady characters like this guy.
OBAMA & FRANKLIN RAINES
This guy was also a former Fannie Mae CEO that was “cooking the books” to the point that he was convicted in a civil court and was ordered to repay $24.7 Million!!! He was manipulating earnings for over a 6 year period in order to get his options and bonuses.
I have a question – why isn’t this guy, Jim Johnson, and Angelo Mozilo in a federal prison somewhere with all those other CEO’s that were caught doing the same thing? Is it because the three of these guys are Democrat operatives and have funnelled millions upon millions of dollars in to Democrat campaigns? Seriously, they are in such serious violation of so many federal crimes and are directly involved in the failures of Fannie & Freddie as well as the whole mortgage lending market!!! They helped put us in this economic mess we’re in – yet – the three of these guys are not in jail. They must know somebody!! Oh..yeah..that’s right – they’re good friends of The Obamessiah!
This guy was also reported in The Washington Post as being an economic and financial advisor to the Obama campaign. Geez – with economic advisors like this – how could Obama’s plan possibly go wrong?
OBAMA & TONY REZKO
Ahhh…the convicted slum lord of Chicago!! Surely, Obama doesn’t know guys like this does he? Sure he does. This is another neighbor of the Obama’s and the Ayers’. In fact, Obama knows this guy so well that Rezko pretty much “gave” Obama some property way below market value. Here’s that story:
Obama paid $1.65 Million for a mansion in 2005 – $300,000 below the market value. The Rezko’s bought the adjacent property for $625,000 (from the same seller)…then sold that property to Obama for $104,000. Sounds a bit shady to me!!!
Obama’s boss at the law firm he worked for in 1995 was also partners with Rezko. When Obama announced that he was beginning his run for the state Senate – Rezko donated to his campaign…and every campaign thereafter.
While Obama was in the state Senate – he helped push legislation through that provided millions of dollars to Rezko’s land development company that built those slums in Chicago. Rezko was convicted for soliciting kick-backs from companies that were looking for state pension business. Of all that kick-back money that Rezko received – he used $10,000 of that to contribute to Obama’s campaigns.
OBAMA & MADELINE TALBOTT
Madeline Talbott was directly responsible for getting Obama his first job with ACORN as a “community organizer.” Madeline Talbott has been under investigation herself for her strong-arm shake-down tactics of forcing Chicago area banks in to making those risky sub-prime home loans. She herself has been in jail a few times for disorderly conduct and disrupting official business by storming in to city hall council meetings with 100′s of protestors.
She considers Obama one of her best friends and in fact stated “Barack has proven himself among our members…we accept and respect him as a kindred spirit, a fellow organizer.”
These two have such a long history and this woman herself has such a history of extortionist practices that you have to go here to read it all. I can’t possibly fit all of that in to this post.
OBAMA & JEREMIAH WRIGHT
Do we really need to rehash this connection? Obama sat in this guy’s pews for 20 years listening to the hate-filled vitriolic and venomous anti-white, anti-semitic, racist rants – and he has the gall to say he never heard him say any of that?
This is the same guy who wrote in his own book that it was Rev. Wright’s speech “The White Man’s Greed” that inspired him to join that church.
The Rev. Wright follows the Black Liberation Theology of another radical Reverend James H. Cone – the same guy who says that God says that the black man must rise up and kill the white man. There is no way that Obama sat in this church for 20 years listening to the racially charged anti-white sermons of the Black Liberation Theology without having any of that rub off on him. We know it certainly set in with Michelle Obama – she has proven it every time she opens her mouth!
Other than these connections – McCain needs to get the word out there about Obama’s connections to Father Pleger, Louis Farrakhan, and Jessie Jackson. What? Jessie Jackson? Yup – you need to go here to read the latest from old JJ. Apparently, he has it from advisement that if Obama is elected, America will no longer be a supporter of Israel. Rather, Obama will make it a point to make amends with Islam and the Muslims around the world! Think I’m kidding? You should go read that article yourself as reported in the New York Post today.
All I am saying is that some how, some way, McCain needs to make it a strong point to get these radical connections out to the rest of the Americans out there who are sleeping right now. McCain needs to use Obama’s own words from his book when he points out how he purposely associated himself with socialists in college and marxist professors. Lord knows the regular main stream media absolutely refuses to report any of this. If they had been, do you really think Obama would be leading right now?
