Obama the criminal

A couple of interesting articles for your reading pleasure. They should both cause a disturbance in the force, that is if they are not drowned out by the Lehman derivative settlements.

Speaking of which, I’m still wondering where our financial institutions are going to come up with the $350 Billion needed to settle Lehman. OK, I’m not really wondering. In fact, I think we will see the nationalization of the banking industry (at least temporarily) wihin a week’s time. After trillions of wealth have evaporated in the equity markets, and more bailout money yet to come, I’m thinking the Treasury royally screwed the pooch by letting Lehman fail. (Update 10:40 am: we’ve got a mark on Lehman, brings total close to $375 billion)  (update2 9:00 pmTimes UK puts it at $365 billion)

First up is from the Wash Times, “Obama tried to sway Iraqis on Bush deal”

At the same time the Bush administration was negotiating a still elusive agreement to keep the U.S. military in Iraq, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama tried to convince Iraqi leaders in private conversations that the president shouldn’t be allowed to enact the deal without congressional approval.

Mr. Obama’s conversations with the Iraqi leaders, confirmed to The Washington Times by his campaign aides, began just two weeks after he clinched the Democratic presidential nomination in June and stirred controversy over the appropriateness of a White House candidate’s contacts with foreign governments while the sitting president is conducting a war.

And more on the Acorn connection. Seems like the Obamahdi “forgot” to report the $800,000 donation to the Fraudsters at Acorn…

U.S. Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign paid more than $800,000 to an offshoot of the liberal Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now for services the Democrat’s campaign says it mistakenly misrepresented in federal reports.

An Obama spokesman said Federal Election Commission reports would be amended to show Citizens Services Inc. — a subsidiary of ACORN — worked in “get-out-the-vote” projects, instead of activities such as polling, advance work and staging major events as stated in FEC finance reports filed during the primary.

Crooked bastids. Lock ’em up.
