“We got back every dime we used to rescue the financial system, but we also passed a historic law to end taxpayer-funded Wall Street bailouts for good,” Obama said in Miami.

According to the Congressional Budget Office, however, the government will lose about $24 billion on the bailout.

CBO reported that as of now $65 billion in TARP funds remain outstanding.
It gets better.

Yet another of Obama's green projects dies a horrible, expensive death...
In 2010, President Barack Obama invited the CEO of A123 to the Rose Garden to tout the impact of green jobs and he said the company would add more than 3,000 jobs by the end of 2012.

"Well, the teleprompterless Obama is supposed to 'come out swinging' tonight. Every third word is supposed to be BainBainBain! as Obama seeks to exploit the gap between the haves and have-nots.

I'm planning on spending my new-found wealth on a McDonald's hamburger."
Of course, it's a little discouraging to realise that the most politically-informed voters will have the least impact...
"While most would, at first glance, write this off as gossip, it's the latest instance of an evolving trend that jeopardizes President Obama's chance at winning the White House."

"Lohan, by all accounts, is a typical low-information voter. And low information voters, like it or not, will decide this election."
What a screwed up world.
