“I do think in Washington, it’s a little bit like ‘American Idol’ except that everybody is Simon Cowell.” Thus Sayeth Barack Obama.
And just “how cool is it to be on Air Force One” Mr. President? Pretty cool I would imagine. Sounds like a conversation a couple of seven year olds would have, not a conversation with the President of the United States. And then he insults the handicapped.
See the video clip here.
It’s time for President Obama to get back to Washington, D. C. and find out what the hell is going on. How many days has he actually spent in D. C. since he took office? Not very many. Why in the world is he on the campaign trail? He even said so himself — he wanted to talk to “voters.” That’s the way he sees the American citizens, just votes. Now is the time for this administration to stop being like little children. The ball is clearly in his court. Don’t forget, the democrats are in charge. Or are they? I’m beginning to think nobody is keeping the store.
And Timothy Tax Cheat Geithner was the only person on the planet who President Obama could find to be Secretary of Treasury? And then he does his “You’re doing a great job, Brownie” moment, only adding that poor lil Tim has a lot on his plate, give em a break line.
And then the democrats, after passing all these spending measures, now want to get up and act like they, too, don’t know how in the world it happened. Taxing the bonuses 90 percent. They give them the money and then try to punish them by taxation. Good grief. What a scam.
I guess they think people don’t know that they are just trying to cover themselves and pull the wool over the eyes of the “chattering class.” Thus Sayeth Chuck Shumer – (now calling for AIG executives to actually give back the money, as if he didn’t know they were making it possible for them to get it in the first place.) And it seems our great lawmakers sort of forgot about one tiny little detail — the Constitution.
And Carolyn Maloney *D* is on MSNBC right this minute blabbering about the, the, the, uh, cough, cough, defending their actions and now she’s defending Geithner. She wants Volcker to “HELP” him.
And now Alex Witt, MSNBC, is trying to cover for Obama.
Oh, God, and President Obama is in Pheonix today. Right. This is like Bush flying over New Orleans. Except that he had a good reason for not flying Air Force One into a disaster area.
Well, the democrats are in charge and they OWN this mess.
And some say Obama took responsibility for the AIG bonuses, but he did not. He is acting like it all happened behind his back, when they were all in charge of the whole thing. Or maybe he was out for a smoke when that all went down.
So the contracts were written a while ago. That just makes the case for them not getting the bonuses/retention payments. But instead Chris Dodd, at the request of the administration, asked they be exempted. The contracts were written at a time when, I suppose, the companies were profitable.
Oh, yeah, it is American Idol and Amateur Hour all rolled into one sorry ass show.
