    James A. Johnson

    He was executive assistant to Vice President Walter Mondale during the entire Carter Administration (1977-1981). Later, he founded and headed Public Strategies, a private consulting firm, from 1981 to 1985 before leaving for Lehman Brothers.

    Lehman Brothers you know they are right? !!!

    From 1991 to 1998, he served as chairman and chief executive officer of the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae), the quasi-public organization that guarantees mortgages for millions of American homeowners. Previously, he was vice chairman of Fannie Mae (1990-1991) and a managing director with Lehman Brothers (1985-1990).

    [BFannie and Freddie yes we know who they are too[/B]

    On May 22, 2008, Democratic Party officials confidentially divulged that Obama had asked Johnson "to lead the process" for selecting Obama's running mate.


    So here we have a man that advises Obama on economic matters and chairs his VP vetting committee. Then we have Obama out there with his *mock outrage*. Well as I have stated many times, here we go with that *CHANGE* message. The interesting thing, too is on the Obama web page this is the same guy that hammers McCain about Charlie Black.

    And others from those 'companies' have warm fuzzies for Obama, indeed giving him the highest contributions behind the chairman:

    The country started falling apart in 2000 when Bush & his Tom Delay/Abramoff cronies got into power.

    He served from 91-98 when things were good you moron. :lol:

    He's a crook, pure and simple. He jumps in, screws things up, makes millions, then jumps out and uses his money to fund crooks who will assure his ability to continue.

    No, Ali, he sounds exactly like those Republican CEOs of all the currently failing financial instituions. They will all walk away with the millions you are bitching about but that's okay because you love republicans even if they are rich crooks.

    Phil Graham is still McCain's advisor. He was a key to the whole current collapse with his bill in 1996 to stop the regulation.

    CHECK TO SEE HOW MANY OF MCCAIN'S CURRENT ADVISORS ARE ALSO LOBBYISTS. SOME FOR COUNTRIES THAT ARE DICTATORSHIPS.

    He also got more money from Merrill Lynch than any other candidate.

    If you are going to attack the left, at least point out the same shit on your side.
