The faux “outrage” being displayed by the Obama acolytes of late has certainly been worthy of consideration for an Academy Award nomination. The AIG Corporation, recipients of $170,000,000,000.00 dollars worth of “revenues”, has followed through on their contractual agreements and paid executives $160,000,000.00 in “bonuses”. As the fascists flop and foam in front the impartial media, it is nothing more than another in what will be a four-year sempiternal series of diversionary techniques. Get used to it, America..
The Obama administration, the five or so left who have not had to renege (careful now..) on their jobs and applications for fear of being located by prosecutors, is getting jumpy over a “bailout backlash” and it is time to “redirect the rage” away from the “Ebony Enabler”.
In an article entitled, “Obama: AIG can’t justify ‘outrage’ of exec bonuses”, we hear that Obama opined, “How do they justify this outrage to the taxpayers who are keeping the company afloat?” That may be the question that he is asking but it is important to remember that the real OUTRAGE is actually that you and your subordinates have mandated a taxpayer bailout without “bipartisan inclusion”, common sense or “transparency”..
Obama said, “All across the country, there are people who work hard and meet their responsibilities every day, without the benefit of government bailouts”. They actually have to WORK HARDER BECAUSE OF your bailouts in order to cover the nearly $12,000.00 that it will cost every man, woman and child in America. (Tentative figure as of this writing..) Those who “play by the rules” as he said, are the ones TARGETED by the Obama administration, the ones who will be footing the bill for his “bailout”. This “plan” is both a “pay to play” scheme that would make Bernie Madoff proud and a “redistribution racket” for the lowest/useless class. Those “in the middle” literally and figuratively, will be run over both coming and going by the Obama collectivist caravan.
“This isn’t just about dollars and cents, it’s about our fundamental values”. It IS about “dollars and cents”, OUR “dollar and cents”, that is why it doesn’t matter to Obama and the liberal caliphate. Who is this “our” when a liberal is talking about “fundamental values”? This is probably the biggest definitional inversion within the quote, when it comes to the “fundamentals” of political power, the left is completely devoid of “values”.
Not one to be left out of the frolicking and merriment, Barney Frank (L-MA.) said that the move to pay bonuses amounted to “rewarding incompetence”. Who better than Barney himself would understand this statement? With his fine work in collusion with the Clintonistas on the Financial Services Committee, he has been “enabling incompetence” for nearly seventeen years.
The prancing portly Sylvester the Cat even said, “These people may have a right to their bonuses, they don’t have a right to their jobs forever.”, I certainly wish that this cherubic chipmunk held this view in relation to liberal elected officials who win reelection even after violating laws and ethics rules as a matter of habit. Who wouldn’t pay Barney a severance package to waddle off in search of his next back door buckaroo?
As far as “rewarding incompetence” goes, in 2003, George Bush (the guy the left thought was so “dumb”) recognized the problems and sought to have the oversight of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac taken from Congress and given over to a new and specific branch of the Treasury Department. Fabulous Frank said, “These two entities are not facing any kind of financial crisis. The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing”.. Freddie and Fannie officials “rewarded” Barney to the tune of over $43,000 in campaign contributions. Another ex- “partner” of Frank’s, Herb Moses, was an executive at Fannie from 1991-1998 where he “developed the affordable housing and home improvement lending programs”.. “Rewarding incompetence?” Bathhouse Barney needs to go back to answering the phones for the escort service his ex-boyfriend (Steve Gobie) was running out of his Washington apartment and leave the legislating to others.
Continuing the “deflection deception”, Barney ended with, “These bonuses are going to people who screwed this thing up enormously, maybe it’s time to fire some people..” I can think of one lisping liberal and his brown Bolshevik buddy for starters..
The liberal motivation behind their “bailout” was the thought that they could take total control of every corporation in America. The liberals cannot control how the corporations handle their contractual obligations and they cannot make those agreements null and void. They cannot “fire” anybody. This is just another reason that a liberal government should stay far, far away from the world of business. The lawsuits from those who would be “victims” of this leftist power grab would end up getting more tax dollars in legal settlements than they would from the companies honoring their bonus agreements.
This is another reason why the Obama “hurry up, HURRY UP!!” mentality of their “economic stimulus package” and their bogus “bailouts” was bound to implode. This is another reason why totalitarian tyros should not be in charge of anything other than mops and buckets. With a figurehead (careful..) “in charge”, this three ring circus and all of its side show freaks mealy mouthing the moronic mantras of “hope and change” make the Ringling Brother look like pikers..
The Obama goons and trolls are all out chumming for imbeciles as they seek to turn everyone’s attention away from the “Ebony Emancipator”. Lawrence Summers, the misogynist in charge of the Obama National Economic Council described the AIG bonuses as “outrageous”, but not as outrageous as his comments about female engineers and scientists back at Harvard..
David Axelrod said, “we’ve got enormous problems that need to be addressed..” Without going into specifics, I will assume that Axelrod is referring to the endless succession of Obama cabinet members and underlings who are having trouble, not only in the Treasury Department but everywhere in the Obama camp, making bail, avoiding FBI search warrants and scheduling testimony under oath.. “There’s a lot of anger about the irresponsibility that led to this point..” They refuse to recognize their responsibility for their irresponsibility. That is the goal of the Obama ghouls, deflect that anger away from the liberals who have endorsed, sanctioned and approved this “irresponsibility”..
Even an Obama “pollster” Joel Benenson, said that “Americans were clearly indicating that they believe that one of the biggest obstacles to progress on America’s toughest challenges -health care and energy independence- was the influence of special interests and corporate interest on the agenda in Washington”. Benensen’s boo-hoo baloney about “health care and energy independence” aside, the “toughest challenge” is the “obstacles” put in place by the liberal politicians and their new plans to try to socialize anything and everything.
In “Bracing for a bailout backlash”, we read that, “Obama, a product of Harvard Law School (allegedly) who calls upscale Hyde Park (thanks Tony Rezko!) in Chicago home, has shown little inclination to strike a more populist tone”.. Michael Kazin of Georgetown University says, “There’s not really a sense of what the solution is, there’s a potential for a ‘damn everybody in power’ kind of sentiment..”
“Damn everybody in power”? On the surface that appears to be an excellent idea but at the rate the Obama liberals are being handcuffed and hoosegowed, in a very short amount of time, there won’t be anybody left to “damn”.. Thank God..
