Obama’s choice to lead his V.P. search is perfect for a presidential candidate who plans to borrow and spend America into premature foreclosure faster than we’re already doing it:
Obama has asked Jim Johnson, former head of mortgage giant Fannie Mae, to begin research on potential candidates for the No. 2 slot on the ticket, media reports said. Johnson performed a similar task for Democratic presidential nominees John Kerry in 2004 and Walter Mondale in 1984.
“From the man who brought you Geraldine Ferraro and John Edwards…”
Incidentally, “Fannie Mae” is a cutsied up name that pushes the acronym envelope for what the organization is really called: “Federal National Mortgage Association.” This means Johnson should also be good at helping take Obama’s socialist pushes and making them sounds more user-friendly. For example, if the “Internal Revenue Service” was known as “Suzie Sunshine” they could take a lot more money without upsetting anybody. And “Socialized medicine” could become “The Play-Doh Doctor Factory.” Who could argue with that?
My optimism for an Obama defeat in November increased even more after I read this: Former President Carter: I will endorse Obama
Carter’s had his nose up the asses of Fidel Castro, Yasser Arafat, Hamas and more. But fortunately for Obama, Carter’s never had his picture taken with the Reverend Wright, so this endorsement will be gladly accepted.
