Countrywidespread


According to David Espo, AP, President Obama said the following:
This historic step won't be the end of what we do to turn our economy
around, but rather the beginning. The problems that
led us into this crisis are
deep and widespread, and our
response must be equal to the task.
[emphasis added]

Deep and widespread? I would say the problems that led us into the recession spread from Barney Frank's senate desk to Christopher Dodd's. Maybe with a via point at Senator Barack Obama's. Does the Obama forget how these democrats pushed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to guarantee bad mortgages? Does he forget the hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions he received from Fannie and Freddie? Does he forget the sweetheart mortgage rates Dodd was granted by Countrywide, and that Countrywide has already received big bailout bucks that all three of these phonies voted for?

The new era of openness, honesty, and transparency has begun. How come I feel like I am looking through frosted glass?

The lesson here is that politics is a game with a finite number of move options (one of those is talking about "change") and because of that, from afar, every politician looks the same.

In this case, they all look like a bunch of children in the backseat on a long road trip, blaming each other for the mess they all collectively helped cause.

Nice, Tony. Way to do your party proud. Smarterthancongress, I truly hope that you - out of respect for your own positions (however disagreeable I may find them) - choose not to respond to "TONY" should he continue to comment on this blog.

Ah, Tony. You remind me of a well-worn George Foreman Grill: greasy to the touch, your light that once shined so bright has either dimmed to the point of inconceivable iridescence or gone out altogether, as the years of misuse by college kids who so artlessly hid their sausages inside you becomes ever more apparent.

Oh bafflegabbed. You're way funnier than Gkates. I don't care what anybody says.

Desman said...

Who is Tony, anyway?

Bafflegabbed said...

Ah, the more accurate question Desman, is "when is Tony?" and the answer is "Tony is so 1973."

Bafflegabbed, I heard rumors to the contrary. Either way, hilarious.
