Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

There is now further evidence that Barack Obama aligns himself closely with those who caused America’s financial meltdown.

The meltdown is rooted in government-forced loans to people who did not qualify for the credit.

Enter Barack Obama’s Finance Chairwoman Penny Pritzker:

The candidate has even lauded Ms. Pritzker’s business practices as a model for an Obama administration.

“He knows the Pritzker family. He knows what happened in Illinois. He knows that Superior Bank was one of the first to securitize subprime mortgages,” Mr. Courtney said. “He talks about change and helping people find a better way of life, but he has distanced himself from the fact that Superior helped ignite the nation’s subprime crisis and that Penny Pritzker and her family walked away from it and us.”

Read it all here.

So this is the kind of “change” Barack Obama plans to bring to our country:

Mr. Courtney went to his Hinsdale, Ill., branch the Monday after the bank closed in 2001 and stood in line with hundreds of other concerned depositors. He said he’ll never forget overhearing a bank employee tell “one kindly old gentleman, maybe in his 80s, that the coffee and rolls were free but that was about all he was going to get from the bank.”

“The old man just sat down on the curb and cried. It was heartbreaking,” Mr. Courtney said. “They ran their bank like a sleazy car lot and left us holding the bag.”

More crooks in office, is the change Obama will bring.

So you want MORE options for keeping Barack Obama out of the White House? Here you go, both at Ace’s place:

1) The LA Times is sitting on a videotape which shows Barack Obama truly literally palling around with terrorists. Problem is, the LA Times will not release the tape. More, here. Consequently, there is a blog-a-thon to pony up cash for anyone who might have a copy of the tape to cough it up. Go tell them you are in. I know, I know, it is a long shot, but go tell them anyway and pass the word around. Here is more on the significance of the Obama-Khalidi tape.

2) People from around the country are sharing notes in order to help match willing workers with willing hosts in battleground states. If you are in a battleground state and can help facilitate a ride or place to stay for folks who are eager to work, or if you want to work and need a home base – please leave a message here.

The National Republican Trust PAC appears to be getting it done. Here is today’s message from GOPtrust Exec Scott Wheeler:

I have some incredible news for you.

Last week I reported that the National Republican Trust PAC had raised more than $1 million for its emergency effort to expose Barack Obama in key swing states.

Our goal was to raise $2 million by today.

We smashed that goal: we have raised over $3 million today!

Your generosity made this possible.

You are standing up for this country against one of the most vicious assaults ever waged on the Republican party by the liberal media establishment.

Smear after smear against Sarah Palin and John McCain. But Obama’s leftwing agenda and radical friends get barely any attention from the big media!

Let me tell you what’s at stake here.

Obama has promised two major initiatives as soon as he becomes president.

First, he wants to close down talk radio with the so called “Fairness Doctrine.”

And remember this Orwellian “Fairness” broadcasting law could easily be made to apply to Fox News.

Second, Obama wants to give 12 million illegals citizenship. You may recall they tried that in 2007 but failed.

This time Obama will have super-majorities in the Senate and the House.

He will get his wish.

As these illegals become citizens most will register as Democrats and vote for Democratic candidates.

Obama knows that by granting millions of illegals citizenship they will have a super-majority over the Republicans in every future national election.

This single act — giving illegals citizenship — will give the Democrats permanent control over the House and Senate for a generation to come.

We already know just how close the past two elections have been.

If Obama puts even just a few hundred thousand new immigrant voters on the election rolls, he will effectively end the two party system in this nation.

That’s what’s at stake here.

P.S. We are now running ads in 5 battleground states. A week ago we were in just one — Ohio. We want to roll out to 10 states and begin national TV ads as well. We need to raised another $3 million by Friday. I need you help to do. Call our donation hotline at 1-866-957-1467 or Go Here Now.

Toss them a few bucks, I say. They are making progress.

Another way to help will be posted shortly.

If Obama is ahead some 8-12 points in the polls, why is he asking people to take a day off to come work for his campaign? Granted it is a great idea, (talk about boots on the ground) wish McLame would do the same. But, if Obama is cruising comfortably, why put out the call to arms?

UPDATE

Interesting responses, everything from ‘why not?‘, to ‘getting a new federal holiday‘ to the ‘polls are biased to suppress Republican turnout‘.   Most of the polls are poorly done, Gallup is one of the better ones, has shown the race to be ~4-7 point lead for Obama the past month — is now a 2 point spread.  IBD, shows a three point Obama lead, but critically 12% are still undecided.  Which is unheard of this late in a presidential race.  I think it is the undecided that are causing the call to arms more than anything else.  I see it as ‘advantage Obama’, I also see a nervous Democrat camp due to the undecideds.  Any disagree with that hypothesis?

Our good friend and fellow blogger jack mentions voting fraud in Madison County, Miss., but AP is reporting that the problem is more widespread :

AP: Mississippi Has More Voters than Adults

JACKSON, Miss. — More than a third of Mississippi counties have more registered voters than residents old enough to cast a ballot, according to an Associated Press analysis.

In addition to providing ammunition for people who say the voting system is vulnerable to fraud, the flabby voting rolls may make it difficult to accurately determine turnout for the Nov. 4 presidential election.

“There is no reason in the world why some of these counties should have more registered voters than they have living, breathing people,” Mississippi Senate Elections Committee Chairman Terry Burton said.

Question for the left, if your candidate is so damned qualified, why do you find it necessary to resort to election fraud ?

Because you know deep down your guy is a zero ?

In case you were wondering if there is maybe one more thing you can do to keep Barack Obama out of the White House: there is.

National Republican Trust PAC is running the television advertisement that the McCain campaign – much to its discredit – refuses to run.

Click here to donate so this TV ad can be aired as frequently as possible in the battleground states.

Here is the script:

For 20 years Barack Obama followed a preacher of hate and said nothing as Wright raged against our country.

[Clip of Rev. Wright:] “Not God Bless America, God Damn America . . . US of KKKA!”

[Quote of Obama appears on screen:] “I don’t think my church is particularly controversial.”

He built his power base in Wright’s church.

Wright was his mentor, adviser and close friend.

For 20 years Obama never complained until he ran for President.

Barack Obama. Too radical. Too risky

If you have any more money to give, this is the cause I recommend giving to. If you know of a better one or another one, please pass it along. Contributing between now and Sunday, and the sooner the better, is pretty much the last best chance to have an impact purely by giving cash.

I say Madison County will vote for 0bama.  Anyone want to take that bet?
