Chris Dodd and Barney Frank caught with hands in the cookie jar

The Democrats seem to want to refuse accept responsibility in the financial failure. They claim the high ground, but their actions (Harry Reid telling McCain “we don’t need you here”) speak volumes. The Democrats seem so divisive, and want this whole debacle to slide off their backs, and yet here we have Barney Frank, the same democrat that claimed that there was nothing wrong with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, tell us what “we” have to do to fix the problem.

I’m shocked and amazed that McCain has failed to place blame where blame is due, and that he hasn’t distanced himself more from what President Bush wants to do (the same thing the dems want to do) and place all the stress on the taxpayer. Actually I’d love to see ALL the strain placed on every politician who sought to have their pockets filled with campaign graft. Is it just me who sees this campaign giving to the Senate Banking Committee as a CONFLICT OF INTEREST?

President Bush doesn’t look like a “turn coat” but more and more like a lame duck just buying his time (with our money) out of a financial jam. John McCain doesn’t agree with him on this issue as well as many others in the past, contrary to what Obama would like you to believe.

Why doesn’t McCain expose Obama’s past history in this issue? This infuriates me to see him being beaten on an issue that looks so cut and dry from the surface. I know that McCain’s campaign advisors have accepted money from Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae but that IS the job of a lobbyist! They get paid to advance an issue. Do I have a problem with the fact McCain hired them?…………Damn right I do! Did Mc Cain accept money from Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae? Yes he did, but very little.

Although neither candidate is in the banking committee, certainly the fact that Obama has taken some serious money from them erodes his credibility saying that the problems lie entirely with the present administration.

I think accountability is going to be part of this huge bailout. I’d personally like to see a public admission from Carter and Clinton (both liberal media darlings), that their political institutions of affirmative action in mortgage lending hasn’t worked, AND I’d like to see the two democratic leaders in the banking committees step down, Barney Frank (past leader) and the leader now Chris Dodd, who got a lot of money in his political campaign from Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. While we are talking about things that will NEVER happen, let’s have EVERY politician give back every dime they accepted from both institutions, to help pay for their “oversights” read (looking the other way) on America’s best interests.

Also I’d like to ask Nancy Pelosi to keep her mouth shut if she expects the Republicans and 95 of her own Democrats to sign any kind of agreement, her opinions aren’t helpful to a quick resolution.

Somehow I don’t see anyone ‘taking blame’..the finger pointing will go ‘down in history’..
