    Karl Rove just got into it with Holmes on Hannity & Holmes. tonight 9/17/08.

    Rove is so ticked off about Freddie Mac & Fannie Mae--stating the Bush Adminstration (5 years ago), that Rove personally worked on trying to reign in Freddie Mac & Fannie Mae. Rove states--each & every time, they were blocked by democrat Criss Dodd & democrat head of senate banking committee Barney Frank.

    Rove says! democrats on the hill--"let this happen"-at each time---more than 40 democrats on the hill would block every effort to reign in Freddie Mac & Fannie Mae.

    I don't think I have ever seen Karl Rove like this. He is pretty mellow most of the time, not tonight! As most know, Karl Rove is now a political anaylist on Fox News.

    BTW--354 politicians received millions in pay-outs from Freddie Mac & Fannie Mae-1st largest is democrat Criss Dodd & the second largest donation went to BARACK OBAMA! John McCain did not receive any money from Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae.

    Is there any doubt that democrats who are always so ready to call for congressional investigations--are not willing to do so now? Ask yourselves--why is it that John McCain is calling for an investigation, but BARACK OBAMA does not want one!

    I think there's some rats in this wood pile!

    Hate to say it but he is dead on, on this one.

    Feddie and Fanny are wholly democrat creations and babies. The dems get Millions from both of them, and they did block every effort to address the issue.

    Despite what they and some in here are trying to say now.

    I think the more this comes into light, the worse it gets for Democrats. I was watching a democrat pollster--(who is a democrat) who stated the other night-that the more Barack Obama tries to hit President Bush or McCain with this financial/economic disaster, the deeper hole he digs for himself & his party affiliates.

    It's starting now, Rove is outraged by this.

    Rove should be outraged. This is a Democratic Party mess. I just wish we had someone more trustworthy than Rove to scream it form the mountain tops.

    I think all Americans should be outraged about the whole situation.

    But whichever side, Repubs or Dems, who make the claim that they were innocent will be the ones who lose.

    From Obama taking A TON of money from Freddie and Fannie lobbbyists to McCain taking a little as well, and then hiring a former Freddie and Fannie lobbyist to run his campaign, both sides are guilty in one way or the other.

    Period.

    It's just sad that no matter what decade we are living in, it's always politics as usual.

    And who actually gives credence to Karl Rove nowadays?

    Seriously?

    I find it incredibly annoying that both sides like to champion Rove as an expert when he says something they agree with, but he's an idiot when he says something they don't agree with.

    Rove says someone with just mayor and governor experience is not qualified to be VP. - Dems say YAY! and agree with him. Repubs say he doesn't know jack.

    Rove says Dems are responsible for financial crisis. - Repubs say YAY! and agree with him. Dems say he doesn't know jack.

    Rove says McCain/Obama ads are not telling truth. - Both sides say YAY! and ignore the other half of his comments.

    Is this honestly the best we have?

    Exactly, free market worship and the breakdown of regulatory issues by the republicans as well as dems acquiescence have lead to the troubles. Kinda weird as Rove wanted to bring back the times of Hoover, he said so, and they manged to do that.

    repost;

    They were created to help during the depression, they did mostly good work. The housing bubble was caused by greed and stupidity, it is why we need a strong regulatory system. Fan and Fred suffered from the very casino mentality that creates all bubbles. It is why SS needs to be kept far away from the investors. The ramifications of free market ideology, get rich quick schemes, and simple poor decision making is why they needed a bailout - not their structure or their purpose.

    A vote for McCain/Palin is a vote to continue the same economic policies that are destroying the middle class in America.
