Well we have different family members and yes several Repubs voted for Obama in the GE ....

guess our family is not as much aligned to a party, sorry they do not always fall in line. Personally I think that is good attribute, otherwise we could just plaster a D or an R on their them from birth.

We have several members that are in their late 80's and broke with the Repubs. Sorry that you seem find that offensive that they broke party lines and 'are dictating to us.'

Please read what you wrote, our family is compromised of both parties and they cross lines when given a reason.

I find it weird when people have a closed mind, sorry but we are not marching in lockstep ... really strange I know.

And several have changed their party affiliation to vote in primaries.

We have weird thinkers in our family, sorry but they are not always going to raise the team flag and I think that is a good thing,

When large corporations make a contribution and also pay huge sums for a speech ...

you have to wonder if a 'just cut it out' means anything.

For example the housing bubble had been building for years (at least since 2003) mortgages were approved and promoted to people that should not have been going into so much debt. The real estate index began to turn down in 2005, but the majority of people and the media woke up several years later.

Unfortunately too many people relied upon the "professionals" and bought a home and went into debt. But the people that were selling these products made huge profits by shorting the market and were positioning themselves to scoop up the bargains ... converting home owners to renters and a revenue source. You know who suffered the most, I would say the 'minority' class, although I hate to use that word.

Now theses are very smart people, there are profits to be made on the way up in a bubble and on the way down. But they were very greedy, there is nothing wrong with doing your homework and profiting, but they deliberately deceived borrowers knowing that the bubble would burst. Anyone with a half a clue knew this was coming ... when Obama and his economic advisors came out and backed Bush's plan and essentially said 'who could have known' it was rather pathetic. When he appointed Geithner I termed that the wave 4 bounce in Elliott Wave terms, he was friendly to WS.

So we are now back to the Clinton's and their relationship with WS. Yes you need money to win, but who are you winning for? Are you winning for the people and the future of country or are you winning for your own comfort and legacy.

I wonder
