  •  Obama doesn't take PAC or Lobbyist money (0+ / 0-)

    Obama is not funded by "unsavory" people, unless you think that individual employees of companies are "unsavory" in which case, you have a problem since most of us work for companies.  

    Hillary Clinton is ridiculously phony.  Listen to her answer in the debate about her "greatest weakness."   Listen to her describe her "mortgage rate freeze" plan - does she ever level with the American people and tell them that if you are a current homeowner with a mortgage, and you've been playing by the rules, you get screwed?   Your home equity - which is the primary source of wealth for the middle class - will decline?   Does she acknowledge that she's simply pandering to real estate speculators and investors who tried to play the market (and lost) at the expense of ordinary, working-class homeowners who simply wanted a house for their kids?

    No?  Can you point to a single business analysis of the effect of her mortgage-rate freeze plan that does not think that it will collapse the housing market?  

    No?   No shit.  Of course she won't admit that her plan will fuck every one of us over who has a house and pays on a fixed mortgage.  

    Same as of course she won't admit that she has no plan to fix the actuarial (but real) deficit in Social Security.

    Same as of course she won't admit that in order to realize "universal" health care she is going to force people to pay for health insurance when they can't afford it.  

    Same as of course she won't admit that it might be her campaign plan to withdraw troops from Iraq, but when her generals come back and say the surge needs six more months, she's going to say, well, that was my plan then, now my plan is to stay indefinitely.
