Obama 'Glad' Financial Package Passed House

By Perry Bacon Jr.
GLENSIDE, Pa. -- Sen. Barack Obama, speaking after the House approved a financial bailout and rescue package, told reporters here, "Obviously I'm glad to see we finally got this dealt with."

The Democratic nominee, who in recent days had publicly and privately pushed reluctant Democrats to back the proposal, said it is critical now that "the administration uses the authority wisely."

"If we can stop the bleeding with this package, implement it effectively and then move forward to deal with the broader problems on Main Street, then hopefully we can get our economy back on track," he said.

He said he had assured some Democrats who had voted against the proposal on Monday that if he is elected, he will make every effort to ensure taxpayers recoup the money from the rescue plan and that he will make additional efforts to help people in danger of losing their homes.

"They also, I think, wanted to hear from me, as potentially the next president, who's going to be implementing some of the policies after Jan. 20," he said of the members of the House he lobbied.

After his brief remarks, the Democratic nominee, who was at Penny's Flowers here, said, "All right. Where are my flowers?"

For his 16th wedding anniversary, he purchased his wife a dozen white roses for $47.70. He was planning to join her for a dinner in Chicago tonight.

I'm voting for Palin because she is hot. I don't care too much for McCain any more because he lies too much.

Arent' they a beautiful example of normalcy for men and women? They represent ideals in family life, of education, of financial success, and adult sexuality. Happy anniversary, First Couple. What a breath of fresh air!

It's so nice to have a candidate who believes in Family Values.

Obama/Biden '08

Posted by: thebobbob | October 4, 2008 10:54 AM

“It was just reported that America has experienced its ninth straight month of job loss” said Obama today. Sen. Obama is thriving on bad news, because it is easy for demagoguery and rhetoric for the consumption of crowds. “I am here to tell you that we cannot afford four more years of this.” We will not be able to afford anything else that Sen. Obama has brought in his goody bag. He and Michelle will not have to worry, but millions of Americans will be left out to dry. “We need to do what a guy named Bill Clinton did in the 1990s and put people first again.” The problem is that this guy Bill Clinton started the present subprime mortgage crisis that fed the politicians and executives through the Fannie and Fred, but left out the borrowers literally on the street. “What will work is investing $15 billion a year, is making an investment in rebuilding our crumbling roads, schools, and bridges” said Sen. Obama. Where will the money come from now after the giant bailout? “What will work is giving those tax breaks to companies that create jobs here at home, and shutting those tax havens and closing corporate loopholes.” Where have you been Sen. Obama for the last three years in the US Senate? Why have you not propose it there? “This financial crisis is a direct result of the greed and irresponsibility that has dominated Washington and Wall Street for years.” Where have Democrats been all those years, especially the last two years when they have controlled the Congress? Were they dealing and wheeling in Washington and on Wall Street? “Part of what that means is passing the rescue plan that's before Congress. This is a plan that will help us deal with this immediate crisis and put our economy on a firmer footing.” It is called the Wall Street Bush bailout plan. “Our weakening economy means the next President will have to scale back his agenda. But I reject the idea.” Sen. Obama will spend more money that is not there. Sen. Obama is talking about bringing change to Washington. However, how can he do it, if he and Sen. Biden are the Washington insiders? Has anybody ever seen Washington insiders reforming Washington?

Lainey1: As your boy Phil Gramm would say about your grousing over not having a job, "quit whining." You can't buy flowers because you don't deserve to buy flowers. That's his message to you. And the amazing thing is, you still seem to support him and his role model, John McCain.

That's what your side has to offer if you vote for them and by some national tragedy they actually get elected; if you happen to be a corporation, on the other hand, they'll give you money. So instead of grousing about the unemployment their policies have handed you, use your head, look at the evidence on where they stand, and make a sane choice this time.

No sane American should even consider voting for either McCain or Obama after their shameful votes FOR this "bailout" which does nothing to address the root causes of the crisis and will not avert further difficulties.

It is bad enough that Republicans can't see the obvious, but you nlynnc who claims to be a liberal Democrat. Do you think it is just a coincidence or bad luck that this country has experienced one disaster after another while Bush has been President?

Talking about risk? George Bush and his cronies seem hell bent on destroying this country in every way possible and they may yet succeed as they still have a few months left. And if they don't, the last thing I would want to do is to give anyone from Bush's party another chance.

Manolete,Nlynnc and Texan 2007 In your post you say that we must not forget Rev. Wright, but yet you fell to address the Witch Doctor who laid hands on Gov. Palin. The other call them selves a lifelong Democrat but run scared with a yellow streak when times change and the other say he may not be able to pocket hundreds of thousands of dollars because of Fanny and Freddie Mac but yet you believe McCain had nothing to do with Keaton-5 and if you don't I have a road to a bridge that doesn't exist.
I say to all of you- it's time for a change. Your fears and misconception have gotten us where we are today. almost to the brink of a recession border line to depression. We have lowered our standards and this is where we are now.
What most of you fell to see is a man that could have written his own ticket. A man that could've made more without going this route and in a shorter time than this. What you see is a man that love his fellow people and color don't matter. In the game Washington is playing the color of your skin doesn't matter. It's the amount that you have in your pocket! I feel that's what you're afraid of the color of his skin. He's a brillant man and I know that's what Washington is afraid of. He hasn't been there long enough to be tainted by the corruption. You better believe Washington is afraid. They're not afraid of McCain nor of Palin. They're not afraid of them because believe me when I say. There are many people that McCain owe. Palin doesn't matter because she's not smart! Yes I said it, she's not smart and believe me they can train a seal. They know her short comings. She would have to be spoon fed and I guess your hopes are the people that would be doing the feeding are new to Washington? I guess you ask yourselves what about Obama? Yes, he's a smart man, that have felt both worlds. He's had the best of both worlds. You say you want McCain and Palin you do the math.

I AM GLAD THE BILL PASS BUT I AM NOT CRAZY ABOUT IT BUT I NO THAT WE HAD TO DO SOMETHING INSTEAD OF DONING NOTHING AT ALL THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A WORST MISSTACK PEOPLE ARE ALREADY LOSEING THERE JOBS AND IT MIGHT SLOW IT UP SOME I DON'T KNOIW BUT I SURELY HOPE SO AND WHEN MISS PALIN TALKING ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO DO FOR JOBS,,VOTE OBAMA'08 VOTE OBAMA'08.. WE CAN NOT AFFORD ANOTHER FOUR YEARS OF THE SAME... READ: Senator Palin said to Joe Biden, or Governor Palin said to Joe Biden, that our plan to get our economy out of the ditch was somehow a job-killing plan, that's what she said," Obama told a crowd of thousands on the football field at a high school in this Philadelphia suburb. "I wonder if she turned on the news this morning.... When Senator McCain and his running mate talk about job killing, that's something they know a thing or two about, because the policies they've supported and are supporting are killing jobs in America every single day."
OBAMA DONE RAN MCSAME OUT OF MICHIGAN BECAUSE MCSAME SAYS THAT HE DON'T ENOUGH MONEY TO KEEP THE UNTRUE ADS COMING IN OTHER WORDS HE HE IS NOT WINNING IN THAT THE STATE AND HE HAS DICIDED TO GO TO INDIANA LIKE OBAMA IS NOT COMING THERE TO YOU CAN'T TWO GOOD MEN DOWN THAT HAS ALWAYS BEEN A FACT VOTE OBAMA&BIDEN'08 VOTE OBAMA&BIDEN'08..BECAUSE I HAVE A GOOD MAN AND TRUST ME PEOPLE HAVE THROWN ALL KIND OF STUFF AT US AND THEY STILL TRY AND TAKE YOUR KINDNESS FOR WEAKNESS. THE SHIFT IS PROGRESS AND OBAMA&BIDEN IS RIDING IT ALL WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE I SEE A CHANGE COMEING THAT AMERICANS CAN BELIEVE IN...THANK YOU JESUS!

Bought his wife roses and will take her out to dinner...hmmm...Since I haven't had a paycheck in three weeks and probably won't be getting one for a while...that sure beats the heck out of eating ramen noodle soup again. I wish that I had the money to go out on the town. It's a good thing that Congress hurried up and passed that bill so Barack Hussein Obama could fly home and take his wife out to dinner the next day. We don't have to worry about the stock market going down now that the bill has been passed. That bill did so much good for our economy that our stock market closed at a 157.47 deficit today. I've done the right thing all of this time and lived frugally so that I could pay my modest bills. I guess I was wrong. I should have defaulted on my mortgage and stopped paying my bills so that someone else could pay my bills for me, allowing me to be able to go out to dinner every once in a while. Dang! I could have had a V8!

He should be happy. Anything to take his face off this scandal

Franklin Raines - Fannie executive. Cooks the books, takes $90 million in salary. On the Obama Campaign

James Johnson - Head of Fannie. On Obama campaign (picked Joe Biden!)

So did Frank’s gay partner, a Fannie Mae executive at the forefront of the agency’s push to relax lending restrictions.

Herb Moses - Fannie Executive. Also Barney Frank's gay lover. How curious since Franks was also on House banking committee. Did he just like the fact company was named "Fannie?"

Note that Franks, Obama, Dodd and Biden - all top destinations for campaign donations.

These guys make Ken Lay look like 7-11 thiefs.

"Obviously I'm glad to see we finally got this dealt with."

Congratulations, Bozo! You just lost my vote.

With 172 votes for the bailout, the Democrats just put an economic albatross around their necks. The Bailout is now effectively the Democrat's Bill!

More banks will fail, the dollar will tank, and the global economy will collapse just before Election Day.

What a strategic coup for the GOP.

Vote ANY Third Party!

For 7 1/2 years the D-crats have been saying that everything George W Bush does is WRONG. Then dumbya comes along with the biggest, ugliest Warthog of his career - the unnecessary $700 BILLION bailout with taxpayer money.

The Congressional D-crats then rush into action. Pelosi adds some lipstick, Reid combs the fur and Barney Frank curls the tail and adds a pretty bow. And sweetie hussein, like a person that only "talks" but never "does" says: I'm just a phone call away if you need me! Not surprisingly, only dumbya calls him.

Then the D-crats say, what a lovey Warthog we now have - let's all kiss it's approval and add $100+ BILLION of additional give-aways and pork.

So, when that tax increase comes your way after the election to pay for this Warthog (Plagiarist-Joe says: RAISING TAXES IS PATRIOTIC) you know who to blame: dumbya and the d-crats.

IMPEACH CONGRESS.

Of course Barack Obama is glad!

His top campaign contributor is GOLDMAN SACHS with $750,000.00!

Not to mention, McCain's 3rd top contributor is also GOLDMAN SACHS with over $200,000.00.

Washington is corrupt and so is the media!

Posted by: JohnMacArthur | October 3, 2008 5:07 PM

This bailout will rip this country apart. Just you wait and see. Riots in the streets within a year. How "glad" will you be then Obama? Don't forget, McCain voted for it too. As did Pelosi, Reid, Barney Frank, and several others who I will not rush to defend when the mobs come looking for them. I love you America. Pain is coming. I love you America. It's gonna hurt, real bad. I love you America, and Obama's glad.

Obama will be steady with policy. When things were going badly for them after the Republican Convention, they stayed calm. During the financial crisis, Obama has stayed calm, in stark contrast to McCain who has been all over the place.
McCain takes "Maverick" to mean "gambler", "go-getter hero" (even if he doesn't know what he's going to get) and "inspirational leader" (even though two thirds of the Republican congressmen voted against him on Monday, after he had been working with them for days).
And Obama can look to Biden for help; where can McCain look? Only to his advisors - lobbyists every one of them.

Posted by: justzig | October 3, 2008 4:47 PM

I'm another lifelong Democrat (and extreme liberal) who won't be voting for Obama.

Much as I disagree with McCain and Palin's policies, they're the devil I feel I know. I'd trust a Nigerian Bank email more than I trust Obama.

The time is now!
To remind Americans that Barack Hussein Obama is just another politician that will do or say whatever it takes to fulfill his political ambitions. Barack is calculated and methodical about hiding his true convictions and intentions, and uses deception to get elected.

The time is now!
For Americans to remember Barack Hussein Obama’s intimate 20 year relationship with the Priest of Hate, Jeremiah Wright, who blessed Barack and Michelle marriage and baptized both their daughters. AND, to remember the hideous videos of Jeremiah Wright’s congregation which included the Obamas, damning America with bombastic joy, after the Muslim’s criminal attack on America on 9/11.

The time is now!
For Americans to remember how Barack's Priest of Hate, Jeremiah Wright used his tax-exempt church to exercise a radical political agenda, and how he refers to Israel, as well as America, as a "racist" State. Barack's religious leader, Jeremiah Wright believes that the true 'Chosen People' are the blacks; and that black values are superior to middle-class American values.
 Indeed Barack's Priest of Hate, Jeremiah Wright is a black supremacist.

The time is now!
To remind Americans that Barack Hussein Obama wants to be president to implement Jeremiah Wright’s dream of a black supremacist society in America.

The time is now!
For Americans of all political parties to come together to preserve the future of the country we love and have always been proud of, by voting for a True American Patriot and War Hero who risked his life for our country:
John McCain for President of the United States of America.

Country First!
Americans for John McCain/Sarah Palin

BARACK: WHERE'S THE "BOTTOM UP" IN THIS PLUNDERING?

Now that the "tribute" has been paid, will Congress hold hearings to find out how this REALLY happened?

Was this "crisis" engineered? Was in an outgrowth of purposeful acts and under-the-radar policies?

How can Congress think it's come up with a solution when it's never inquired as to the real CAUSE?

Could it be that lenders were ORDERED by government agencies to offer EASY CREDIT to "targeted" citizens?

Could this "extra-judicial targeting" be a root cause of the mortgage meltdown which led to the wider crisis?

Now we're back to square 1, as I see it, with no real help for Main Street -- just say my street, USA with 5 foreclosures for sale. Why did they have to add the earmarks and sweetners to get it passed? Contrary to what we know and what we should know,they will find a way to rifle through this money and request more in as little time as possible.
