"We need to get the government out of the private sector of the economy"

These aren't exact quotes (saw them on a TV show, going from memory), but isn't this completely self-contradictory?

Not necessarily, if the Government were to create an authority for failed brokerages similar to the Resolution Trust Corporation from the S & L crisis, it would create more regulation of the economy but still basically take the government out of the private sector ownership and daily management of the failed firms they are finding themselves stuck with.

[COLOR="DarkGreen"][SIZE="4"]17 Sep McCain warned Congress about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in 2005
When people talk about Media Bias, this is exactly what they are talking about.

John McCain has always been a reformer. Love him or hate him, whether he is stabbing his own Republican brothers in the back or standing by George Bush, he isn’t a partisan and he thinks for himself.

In 2005, John McCain was warning us about a mess that we find ourselves in now. This is an incredible statement, read what McCain said back then. It’s as if he saw the future, but not only did no one listen, it was Democrats that struck down this bill.

Mr. President, this week Fannie Mae’s regulator reported that the company’s quarterly reports of profit growth over the past few years were “illusions deliberately and systematically created” by the company’s senior management, which resulted in a $10.6 billion accounting scandal.

The Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight’s report goes on to say that Fannie Mae employees deliberately and intentionally manipulated financial reports to hit earnings targets in order to trigger bonuses for senior executives. In the case of Franklin Raines, Fannie Mae’s former chief executive officer, OFHEO’s report shows that over half of Mr. Raines’ compensation for the 6 years through 2003 was directly tied to meeting earnings targets. The report of financial misconduct at Fannie Mae echoes the deeply troubling $5 billion profit restatement at Freddie Mac.

The OFHEO report also states that Fannie Mae used its political power to lobby Congress in an effort to interfere with the regulator’s examination of the company’s accounting problems. This report comes some weeks after Freddie Mac paid a record $3.8 million fine in a settlement with the Federal Election Commission and restated lobbying disclosure reports from 2004 to 2005. These are entities that have demonstrated over and over again that they are deeply in need of reform.

For years I have been concerned about the regulatory structure that governs Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac–known as Government-sponsored entities or GSEs–and the sheer magnitude of these companies and the role they play in the housing market. OFHEO’s report this week does nothing to ease these concerns. In fact, the report does quite the contrary. OFHEO’s report solidifies my view that the GSEs need to be reformed without delay.

I join as a cosponsor of the Federal Housing Enterprise Regulatory Reform Act of 2005, S. 190, to underscore my support for quick passage of GSE regulatory reform legislation. If Congress does not act, American taxpayers will continue to be exposed to the enormous risk that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac pose to the housing market, the overall financial system, and the economy as a whole.

I urge my colleagues to support swift action on this GSE reform legislation.

The reason the Democrats and Obama try to win this election by saying McCain’s old, or that he is another Bush or he is out of touch is because the truth would finalize a McCain win.

Read the above comments and then tell me McCain isn’t a reformer. What’s more incredible is that not one news outlet is covering this story. Not a single one, not even Fox and Drudge.[/SIZE][/COLOR]

Daniel, I beleive it is an individual's right to choose a candidate any way he or she wants to. If politicians kept it about politics then I would have to, too. Until then I won't either. :icon_bigg
Here's some more to scream at me about:

I am only chosing a woman, because I am stuck with her. I don't usually vote for women.

Easy for you to say Miss 36C.
