It's simply and easy, just the way I like it.
So, given the president's professed urgency, the next day, Sept. 9, everyone asked where was his jobs legislation?
DURBIN: I think that's more realistic it would be next month.
So, as of right now, "right now" uttered on Sept. 8 really means sometime at least one month later.
Community Development Lending
Overall, FBBH has made a relatively low level of community development lending during the review period. As shown in Table 7, the bank made 32 qualified community development loans totaling approximately $28.2 million in its AA. Only 2 community development loans were made over the past 18 months.
January 2009: In an effort to show it has done something to support renewable energy, the Bush Administration tries to take Solyndra before a DOE credit review committee before President Obama is inaugurated. The committee, consisting of career civil servants with financial expertise, remands the loan back to DOE “without prejudice” because it wasn’t ready for conditional commitment.
March 2009: The same credit committee approves the strengthened loan application. The deal passes on to DOE’s credit review board. Career staff (not political appointees) within the DOE issue a conditional commitment setting out terms for a guarantee.
Because one of the Solyndra investors, Argonaut Venture Capital, is funded by George Kaiser — a man who donated money to the Obama campaign — the loan guarantee has been attacked as being political in nature. What critics don’t mention is that one of the earliest and largest investors, Madrone Capital Partners, is funded by the family that started Wal-Mart, the Waltons. The Waltons have donated millions of dollars to Republican candidates over the years.
February 2006 – October 2006: In February, Solyndra raises its first round of venture financing worth $10.6 million from CMEA Capital, Redpoint Ventures, and U.S. Venture Partners. In October, Argonaut Venture Capital, an investment arm of George Kaiser, invests $17 million into Solyndra. Madrone Capital Partners, an investment arm of the Walton family, invests $7 million. Those investments are part of a $78.2 million fund.
23 retired union officials from Chicago stand to collect about $56 million from two ailing city pension funds
It's important to note that Reagan's tax increases did not wipe out the effects of that initial tax cut. But they did eat up about half of it. And as Peter Beinart points out, the 1983 payroll tax hike went to pay for Social Security and Medicare. ("Reagan raised taxes to pay for government-run health care," Beinart writes.) Reagan also raised the gas tax and signed the largest corporate tax increase in history
“The cards are flying off the shelves."
Vice President Joe Biden told Florida radio station WLRN on Thursday that voters should hold President Barack Obama, not former President George W. Bush, accountable for the poor state of America’s economy.
voters should hold President Barack Obama.. for the poor state of America’s economy
We own the economy
If this economy hasn’t rebounded in three years, I’m a one-termer
You blame Bush for unpaid wars and tax cuts......were these both bipartisan? And the real kick in the ass is after Bush getting slamed everytime I turn around and how did Obama put it about the tax cuts?......morally corrupt I think. He turns right around and extends them. I just don't get him or anyone that supports him.
About Anwar.......I don't get this either. Obama says these people should be captured and tried in a court of law. We are a country of laws.......Gitmo is evil (which is still open regardless of the repubs). but he sends in Navy seal team 6 to kill Osama who's hanging out eating bon-bons watching the Simpsons, why not capture him and turn him over to police? I don't mind beer drinking and I don't mind preachers.......I do mind preachers who tell me it's evil to drink and then I run into them at the beer store. Kinda like Al (I got a BIG carbon footprint) Gore.
Just 37 percent of people in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll say they expect Obama to win re-election in November 2012; 55 percent instead expect the eventual Republican nominee to win.

Ford also saw a 9 percent uptick, and U.S. vehicle sales were up 10 percent overall from last September.
