These kind of clowns--hedgefund managers supporting GOP and the KKK--could reelect Obama

Previously betting on President Obama and Democrats in 2008, hedge-fund managers are now "actively supporting Republicans" because of Obama's "populist attacks on Wall Street" and "Democrat-led efforts to raise their tax bills." A majority of hedge fund contributions went to the GOP in 2009-1010 election season, "a pattern not seen since 1996, when the industry was much smaller."

According to a new Harvard study, "the share of renters who spend more than half their income on housing is at its highest level in half a century." The study "offers the latest in a series of grim statistics about the scarcity of rental housing, especially for the working poor."

Gov. Haley Barbour (R-MS) announced Monday that he will not seek the GOP presidential nomination in 2012. Though some thought Barbour could win the nod, many felt that his previous comments praising the white supremacist Citizens' Council and failure to immediately condemn a proposal to celebrate a Ku Klux Klan leader would "derail any chance he would have against the first black U.S. president."
