Barack Obama — who after just three years in the Senate ranks near the top in campaign contributions from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — blithely ignores his own party’s role in the mortgage crisis:
[Obama] assured a rally in the Denver suburb of Golden that he understood the impact the crisis was having from Wall Street to Main Street. “Jobs have disappeared, and peoples’ life savings have been put at risk. Millions of families face foreclosure, and millions more have seen their home values plummet,” he said. “These are the struggles that Americans are facing. This is the pain that has now trickled up.”
And then he jets off to Beverly Hills for a fundraiser with Barbra Streisand, Leo DiCaprio, Jodi Foster, Steven Spielberg, et al. Ain’t it amazing how Democrats are always claiming to feel your pain, even while they and their rich buddies just keep growing richer and richer?
