Did You Know...


And again! This was not the Jim Johnson I knew…Updated

Okay, he didn’t actually say it that way this time. Yet, anyway. But it’s a new verse of the same old song as James Johnson, the Fannie Mae exec who got the sweetheart loans from a shady subprime lender Barack Obama had railed against on the campaign trail, has become a political liability.

So now he’s off of Barry O’s vice-presidential search team, and he’s occupying a new position:


And yes, I did write this post and do that picture way in advance. I knew this was coming. Updates to follow, I’m sure.

HEH: Jim M. in the comments:

Dang! The road to the White House sure is a bumpy ride!

UPDATE: Let’s not distract from the hope and change, please:

“I would not dream of being a party to distracting attention from that historic effort,” he said in a statement. “I believe Barack Obama’s candidacy for President of the United States is the most exciting and important of my lifetime.”

Johnson, 64, said that he had done nothing wrong, saying “blatantly false statements and misrepresentations” had been written about him.

“Jim did not want to distract in any way from the very important task of gathering information about my vice presidential nominee, so he has made a decision to step aside that I accept,” Obama said in an e-mailed statement.

Question–so if James Johnson didn’t really “work” for Obama, can he resign from a job he never had?

Barack Obama held a roundtable on “predatory lending”. As Michelle might say, snort. Here’s his speech; this line jumped out at me:

This has to stop. We cannot let the rules of the game continue to be rigged against ordinary Americans. We need a President who will look out for the interests of hardworking families, not just their big campaign donors and corporate allies.

Like Countrywide Lending, you mean?
