On issue after issue, Barack Obama is getting exposed as a total fraud. Let’s discuss the fraud on home foreclosures, Samantha Power, Iraq, NAFTA.

The American economy sucks – a crude but accurate assessment. Recession looms or is already here. Unemployment is soaring. Predatory lenders and predatory mortgages eat the carrion produced by their industry.
Hillary has a plan to “Protect the Dream of Home Ownership”.
As part of Hillary’s rescue plan she proposes a 90 day moratorium on foreclosures for homes purchased with predatory loans along with a 5 year rate freeze on these predatory sub-prime adjustable rate mortgages. Hillary Clinton also proposes a $30 billion foreclosure fund to help distressed homeowners.
Barack Obama opposes a moratorium on foreclosures. Obama proposes tax credits on 10% of mortgage interest and a much smaller, nearly useless, $10 billion bond proposal to somehow “avoid” foreclosures.
Hillary Clinton has a Rescue Plan; Barack Obama has a Rezko Plan.
Barack Obama, warming his toes in front of those lovely mahogony fireplaces in his Rezko Rescue mansion, chuckling as he reads the details of the health plan which protects his family, can afford to leave out 15 million Americans from his health care plan as well as to wait out the “economic cycle” and let the housing “bubble” burst.
Unlike Barack, most Americans don’t have an Antoin “Tony” Rezko to help buy houses they can’t afford. Americans will soon start to ask themselves “Where Is My Tony Rezko?” “Where Is My Rezko Rescue for a house I can’t afford?” “Where is my Tony Rezko?” “Where is my Chicago fixer?”
Obama has a lot of questions to answer which Obama does not want to answer.
The Chicago Sun Times:
Try to imagine President Bush, fleeing questions coming at him fast and furious over a controversy, closing a news conference by saying, “Come on, I just answered like eight questions.” Democrats in Congress and liberal interest groups would be shouting coverup. The editorial pages of the national newspapers would be thundering outrage. The late night comedians and left-wing blogs would be heaping ridicule on him.
We’ll write more about the Hillary Clinton Rescue Plan and the Barack Obama Rezko Plan soon.

As monstrous as her words were regarding the wonderful Hillary Clinton there are other aspects of this particular Obama advisor that need to be explained by the Obama campaign.
Samantha Power was the author of the clumsy “attack Pakistan” memo which Obama delivered and resulted in riots in Pakistan. Comedy Central giggled over the incompetence of the Obama/Power play. At the time, we wrote extensively not only of Obama’s mess of a foreign policy speech, but also of Obama’s lies about his foreign policy speech. Obama lied then called those that were telling the truth – liars. Obama is a fraud through and through.

Earlier in the week the Obama drama was about Obama’s NAFTA lies. The Obama fraud in this case involved meetings with Canada, telling Canada not to worry about the flowery words from Obama on the campaign trail. Ohio voters saw the Obama fraud.
Today’s Obama drama fraud concerns Iraq.
For all the chatter about Obama adviser Samantha Power’s calling Clinton a “monster,” another set of remarks made on her book tour in the United Kingdom may be equally threatening to the Obama campaign: Comments in a BBC interview that express a lack of confidence that Obama will be able to carry through his plan to withdraw troops from Iraq within 16 months.
Power downplayed Obama’s commitment to quick withdrawal from Iraq on Hard Talk, a program that often exceeds any of the U.S. talk shows in the rigor of its grillings. She was challenged on Obama’s Iraq plan, as it appears on his website, which says that Obama “will remove one to two combat brigades each month, and have all of our combat brigades out of Iraq within 16 months.”
“What he’s actually said, after meting with the generals and meeting with intelligence professionals, is that you – at best case scenario – will be able to withdraw one to two combat brigades each month. That’s what they’re telling him. He will revisit it when he becomes president,” Power says.
The host, Stephen Sackur, challenged her:”So what the American public thinks is a commitment to get combat forces out in 16 months isn’t a commitment isn’t it?”
“You can’t make a commitment in March 2008 about what circumstances will be like in January of 2009,” she said. “He will, of course, not rely on some plan that he’s crafted as a presidential candidate or a US senator. He will rely upon a plan – an operational plan – that he pulls together in consultation with people who are on the ground to whom he doesn’t have daily access now, as a result of not being the president. So to think – it would be the height of ideology to sort of say, ‘Well, I said it, therefore I’m going to impose it on whatever reality greets me.’”
“It’s a best-case scenario,” she said again.
Smart voters in Ohio and Texas saw through the fraud.
