Fall Elections 2010- #2309 - VIDEO: The Barney Shuffle - The Blaze

The Barney Shuffle - The Blaze - Hopefully it's Bye, Bye Barney - You have to hand it to Sean Bielat. He is swinging for the electoral fences. The New York Times devoted an entire piece to his video campaign to defeat Barney Frank: Representative Barney Frank was dancing around the issues — first doing a version of the Running Man, then the Sprinkler, then a disco boogie.  Although in this case, Mr. Frank was actually a dance instructor named Kira who was dressed in a makeshift fat suit, with a suit and tie on over that, pretending to be the Massachusetts Democrat and powerful committee chairman as she sweated and shimmied her way across a green screen in a Boston-area production studio.

Fannie/Freddie Housing Bailout on Track to Double? - The Blaze - The government spelled out Thursday just how much the most expensive rescue of the financial crisis will end up costing taxpayers — as much as $259 billion for mortgage buyers Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.  That figure would be nearly twice the amount Fannie and Freddie have received so far. To date, the rescue of the two companies has cost taxpayers $135 billion.......  Fannie and Freddie were battered by losses on loans they backed, once the housing bubble burst and foreclosures soared. The two companies buy home loans from lenders, package them into bonds with a guarantee against default and sell them to investors.  Read more.......
