Judd Gregg: Dems Still Want “Lending to Just About Anybody Who Wants a Home” – Video




Here is video of Sen. Judd Gregg on CNBC today where he placed the blame for most of the U.S. financial crisis squarely at the feet of the Democrats. Gregg was asked about the so-called “Financial Reform” bill, which he described as a “disaster” because it does nothing about reform of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.

That’s where Gregg drew the link between the Democrats and the economic crisis:
“The problem was created by the Congress. It was the Congress that told Freddie and Fannie to radically expand their securitization efforts. It was the Congress which said “Forget your standards – Go out there and lend to anybody who wants a home and securitize it for them.” That was purely at the initiative of the Congress. In 2005, Richard Shelby brought to the floor a reform package which, had it passed at the time, would have avoided almost all the problems we’ve had with Fannie and Freddie. . . . . There is still an attitude in the Congress which says we should be pushing out lending to just about anybody who wants a home…..It’s still the philosophy of the majority party.”

The majority party – the Democrats – love to blame all the ills of the world on George W. Bush. But their philosophy of making home ownership a “right” in large part brought us to where we are today, and it sounds like they have not learned a thing from this crisis. That’s why they need to become the minority party, and this time, the Republicans need to govern with true conservative principles.

Democrat Rep. Patrick Murphy Faces Angry Constituents Asking for a”Real Town Hall Meeting” – Video



Here is raw video of Pennsylvania Democrat Rep. Patrick Murphy this past weekend facing constituents at a meeting he thought was going to be a “one-on-one” series of conferences with people. However, he found out that they wanted a “real town hall meeting” instead of “one-on-one” meetings.

Murphy looked shell-shocked as his constituents repeatedly asked if he was going to hold a town hall meeting. Murphy seemed desperate to keep the thing a “one-on-one” format rather than allow it to be a town hall meeting, which the vast majority of the people wanted. Murphy represents the 8th Congressional District.

Rep. Darrell Issa: “There’s a Cover-Up Going on at the White House” – Video 5/25/10



Here is video of California Rep. Darrell Issa on Fox News today where he talked about the issue of the job offer made to Rep. Joe Sestak by someone at the White House to try and get him to drop his bid for the U.S. Senate against Sen. Arlen Specter.

Issa has requested a “Special Prosecutor” be appointed to look into the matter, which has been rejected by Attorney General Eric Holder. Holder has said the matter “could be investigated,” but no such decision has been made.

Issa said it is not for the White House to decide what is “inappropriate,” referring to White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs’ assertion that “nothing inappropriate” took place.

“This problem is not going away” for the White House, Issa said. Issa went on to also say, “There is a cover-up going on at the White House,” and the offer of a job “could be impeachable.”

Once Again, Joe Sestak Repeatedly Dodges Questions on Job Offer Bribe - Video 5/25/10


Here is video of Rep. Joe Sestak on CNN with John King, where he continued his repeated dodging of questions regarding a job offer he says he received from the Obama White House to try and get him to drop his U.S. Senate bid against incumbent Sen. Arlen Specter. Sestak confirmed again that he did receive a job offer, but will not say from who or what the job was. Of course, the looming question is what did President Obama know about this job offer, and when did he know it?

The media seems to be starting to get active on this story. The question won't go away. At some point, no matter how hard he tries, Obama is going to get hit with a question about this matter and what he knew about it.
