Great! So where's the timetable for withdrawal?

Foreclosures are at record rates. People look around and they see foreclosed homes on their blocks and they see nothing but trouble ahead.

Why Obama?


Judging by this picture in the Chicago Sun-Times [online], you'd assume Obama figured prominently in yesterday's proceedings in the Tony Rezko Trial. I mean, it's his picture along with that of defendant Tony Rezko and "star witness" Stuart Levine.

They were all about that "liberal" Foster and how he was going to spend all that money on "government-run health care".

FireDogLake has set up a convenient form to express your outrage by email to local newspapers that carry the slanderous material by Nedra Pickler.
