President Weekly Address Republican lies Tea Party

Weekly Address – January 16, 2010

President Obama wants the banks to pay back the taxpayer.  That’s a good thing.  Will the Tea Party agree with the President or are they hypocrites that only complain about the Wall Street bailout and the deficit and still turn their backs on our President even when he does what they want him to do?  Which one is it?  I’m not convinced that the Tea Party members really know their history.  They could be acting on a fantasy especially if they relied on the common history books that were used in public schools as their source for information.

Massachusetts Senatorial Candidate, Republican Scott Brown who is supported by the Tea Party and Wall Street banks and other outsiders, opposes fees on banks that would payback the taxpayers.

Another thing, Scott Brown says that he will vote to repeal health care reform.  Be aware, this repeal INCLUDES doing away with Medicare.

8 years of Bush/Gerlach Policies Lead to Economic Collapse
House Fails to Pass Rescue Package

MALVERN, PA – The US House of Representatives failed to pass a financial relief bill today, plummeting the stock market to a record-setting low. Jim Gerlach took advantage of another opportunity to pander while failing to act.

“Jim Gerlach took a pass at confronting an enormous challenge and strengthening our economy,” said Roggio Campaign Manager Liz Conroy. “For 6 years, he has stood shoulder-to-shoulder with George Bush and supported the disastrous policies that have led to this massive meltdown. He has accepted almost $1.5 million from the Finance, Insurance, and Real Estate sectors, but claims to have the leadership and independence to solve this problem. Jim Gerlach has failed in his representation of middle class families who are struggling to protect their retirement and save for college. This was his chance to act. This was his opportunity to lead. This was his time to show some guts and find solutions and he foundered.”

After 8 years of the Bush/Gerlach policies that led to this enormous crisis, voters of the 6th district deserve new leaders who can bring a fresh perspective to Washington and work to fix our problems. We cannot trust those who got us into this problem to find a way out.

Forget Main Street

The Republicans are all set to bail out Wall Street and they don’t want to bail out Main Street.  With the Republicans, you are on your own, baby.

Read all about it at Politico

Republicans… playing politics as usual.  They only care about money and more money.  Remember, they also want to privatize Social Security.

UPDATE:

Rick Davis, McCain’s campaign advisor, was paid $30,000.00/week by Freddie Mac and Fanny Mae.  So when McCain starts trashing Obama about being connected to someone he was introduced to once from Freddie Mac, he needs to turn around and look behind him because his top man, Rick Davis is a foremost lobbyist for the mortgage industry.  This is why McCain will never regulate Wall Street and refuses to help out Main Street.

Senator John McCain’s campaign manager was paid more than $30,000 a month for five years as president of an advocacy group set up by the mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to defend them against stricter regulations, current and former officials say.

New York Times article, a must read.

Incensed by the advertisements, several current and former executives of the companies came forward to discuss the role that Rick Davis, Mr. McCain’s campaign manager and longtime adviser, played in helping Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac beat back regulatory challenges when he served as president of their advocacy group, the Homeownership Alliance, formed in the summer of 2000. Some who came forward were Democrats, but Republicans, speaking on the condition of anonymity, confirmed their descriptions.

John McCain continues to lie in his ads.  Whatever happened to the “Straight Talk Express”?  It has become the express of liars.  John McCain will say anything to further his political career.  In my humble opinion, I think John McCain is still trying to live up to his father’s and grandfather’s expectations of him and that is why he has been so desperate in his race to be elected President.  His career is first and our country is second to him.

In an interview with 60 Minutes, John McCain was asked if he thinks that Sarah Palin is ready to be president.  McCain answered “yes” while shaking his head no.  Body language speaks louder and more truthful than words and if McCain is shaking his head no while answering this question, then he really is saying that he is not convinced that Sarah Palin was the right choice.
Watch the heading shaking…

Just a reminder…. all this deregulation and union busting was started with Ronald Reagan, a Republican President and continued with George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.  When Presidendent Clinton tried to veto a deregulation bill, his veto was overturned by the Republican controlled Congress.  Yeah, I’m blaming the Republicans for this economic disaster with their voodoo, trickle down economics.  It didn’t work in the 1920’s and it didn’t work this time around either.  The Savings and Loan disaster happened during the Reagan years and the taxpayers had to bail out those failures.
