Obama and the financial crisis

The October 7, 2008 article by Stanley Kurtz in National Review Online is a blockbuster! I begins:

‘You’ve got only a couple thousand bucks in the bank. Your job pays you dog-food wages. Your credit history has been bent, stapled, and mutilated. You declared bankruptcy in 1989. Don’t despair: You can still buy a house.” So began an April
1995 article in the Chicago Sun-Times that went on to direct prospective
home-buyers fitting this profile to a group of far-left “community organizers”
called ACORN, for assistance. In retrospect, of course, encouraging customers
like this to buy homes seems little short of madness.

At the time, however, that 1995 Chicago newspaper article represented something of a triumph for Barack Obama. That same year, as a director at Chicago’s Woods Fund, Obama was successfully pushing for a major expansion of assistance to ACORN, and sending still more money ACORN’s way from his post as board chair of the Chicago
Annenberg Challenge.

ACORN is a group described by Rutgers University political scientist, Heidi Swarts, as “oppositional outlaws.” These “outlaws,” who are now being investigated for voter fraud in ten states, are the people Barack Obama once worked for and is now supporting financially!

How can anyone in their right mind vote for Barack Obama for President?

Obama is going to fix the financial crisis by putting more businesses out of operation, as well as taking money away from those who have earned it and spent it wisely. Wow, people really love these socialist illuminati.
