Burning Down the House - Mortage Crisis Explained in 10 Minutes

Watch this video. It may explain a few things about how we arrived at this crisis.

You might want to pause it a few times to take notes and verify some of the quotes and examine the charts more closely than the fast-paced video allows.

That's Birmingham, England, Guys

Obama's tragic flaw may very well be hubris. His pseudo-Greco Roman columns, his "we are the ones we've been waiting for" speeches, his short-lived Prepresidential seal, etc. etc. etc.

His presidential seal is being struck even as we have 6 more weeks until the election. Maybe his favorite song is "Wishing Will Make it So".

Rank and file union members and business people in the US should note that the Obama team selected a British firm to produce the tokens of his imminent presidency. Good choice, Barack.

John McCain, can you do something with this? Please? Poke a little fun at Caesar Obamus. Let American workers know where Obama likes to shop.

Where's the Music?

"Uncharacteristically low turnout for Barack Obama rally in Green Bay, Wisc.
McCain/Palin drew 4,000 more supporters at same venue a week ago."

Maybe he didn't have a rock show beforehand.

Poor Obama

Poor Obama. He no sooner wins officially the Democrat presidential nomination and shuts the door on his female opponent once and for all when another politician in skirts pops up threatening to rain on his parade.

He probably thought he had it made, and maybe he still does. But you have to admit that the game has changed a bit in the last four days.

Who would have thought that the Republican party would be the one to boast a female on the ticket in 2008? It was Hillary's year, after all. But who would have thought that she would have lost it - we can argue about the combination of occurrences that doomed her chances - in early days?

The MSM is showing its hand, although a bit carefully at the moment. We will see how they continue to pursue their nearly unanimous quest to elect a Democrat to the White House and what tactics they will use to smear McCain's choice for Vice President.

What? (1) She's not an "authentic" woman. That's the term they used to criticize any and all black Republican candidates or appointees. Gov. Palin can point to her five children to prove she's authentic in that regard. (2) She's too prolific. I expect this from all the greenies. Just think how much consumerism her brood will exude. (3) She's too pretty, and a beauty queen to boot. They're just jealous.

Let's wait and see what they pull out of their hats.
