Today, Barack Obama, gave a speech on the housing crisis. In the speech, he said:
I do not accept an America where Washington’s only message to working people is: “you’re on your own.”
But Barack Obama didn't need Washington when he was buying a house. Because he had a politically connected real estate developer, Tony Rezko, under federal criminal investigation who subsidized his house.
Is that Barack's lesson? That if you aren't lucky enough to know a corrupt real estate developer, you need Washington?
