Caught on Video: Democrats in Their Own Words Blocking Fannie/Freddie Reforms by American Elephant

Republicans tried many times to regulate Fannie and Freddie. Democrats demonized and demagogued those calling for the regulations. Watch how they attack the Director of Oversight. Democrats said there was no problem. Democrats voted in complete party unison against reforms.

Here they are in their own words. See for yourself.

They were protecting their pet policy that caused this meltdown. They were protecting the Democrats who ran Fannie and Freddy. They were protecting their piggy bank.

They must be voted out of office.

Timeline Shows Bush, McCain, Republicans Warning Democrats of Financial Crisis by American Elephant

Another video explaining Democrats complicity in the financial crisis. Notice the alternative media are the only ones covering this most important story.  The most important story this election season and the “mainstream” media, desperate to drag Obama across the finish line at all costs, won’t cover it. Isn’t that the very definition of a lie of omission?

Please forward these videos and stories to the people you know — especially Democrats and independents — and ask them to forward them as well. Post them on your blog or myspace. Encourage others to circulate them. America seems poised to elect the very people who did this to our financial system so they can do it to our healthcare system and who knows what else.
