Eliot Spitzer On Matt Taibbi and Goldman Sachs

Tyler Durden's picture





 

The anti-Goldman sentiment keeps on growing: next up is Bloomberg's interview with former Attorney General Eliot Spitzer in which he chimes in with his views of Taibbi's Goldman Sachs article and Goldman's money making prowess ("because it is a conspiracy does not mean it is wrong").
In a impressively coherent presentation, the former Governor also talks
about bankrupt states and the lack of regulation (his family life
disclosure may be fast forwarded). Must watch.

Nice to see Spitzer back in the ring. He's a wise man and knows that America forgives just about anything for someone who admits, apologizes, moves on to do better.

Why does he need our forgiveness?  For fucking some two-bit whore, or for getting caught?  Or rather, not so much for getting caught, but for making powerful enemies.

Hey Tyler you can embed bloomberg's videos through clip syndicate

For example :

 

<object width="320" height="303"><param name="movie" value="http://eplayer.clipsyndicate.com/cs_api/get_swf/2/&va_id=1019966&wpid=0&..."></param><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true"></param><embed src="http://eplayer.clipsyndicate.com/cs_api/get_swf/2/&va_id=1019966&wpid=0&..." type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" width="320" height="303"></embed></object>

Whatever I can do to help Goldman for next quarter's earnings season I will do ! ;-)

"Don't we just all wish we were in Goldman's shoes...Run a hedge fund payed for and guaranteed by the taxpayer but without having to share the profits......"

Thought that was a big part of the off-record deal Paulson made with Bush and Bernanke, back when Bush was about to vacate the office?

Bush said something to the effect of ... "look my brother Neil got by with scamming Americans, did not get punished during the 80's heck, we even had a fund raiser.  Everybody dressed up.  Dad's buds where padding him on the back for his net take...  All his friends and the others who did not get busted, went right on into the derivatives market didn't they?  Specializing in se-se-sec-securitization ...hehehe.... If you guys can pull this off, you will easily surpass Neil's record. Make sure you invite me to the 'fundraiser' if you get caught.  I have a soft spot for high-level scams and afterparties.  ...Don't worry Ben, you will have a good time when regulators cant bring themselves to charge you with anything...."  *insert texas cowhand chuckle*

Sure enough, lessons learned from this little primer here boys.    *insert texas cowhand chuckle*  Sock it to 'em.  Ahahahaha.

Yeah thats it, with the occasional head nod.  That will draw their guard down just enough.  Perfect.

 

Let me see you put your hands in the prayer configuration again... *insert texas cowhand chuckle* ... Oh, that is good.  Don't you think that's good Ben?  That's going woo Maria Bartiromo.  She'll be fawning over you asking where to send the check.  I doubt she will even ask you one time about your dividend pass through operations.

You got some people you can turn out in case they start questioning those operations?  What about that guy in Palm Beach, from your parent's Country Club?   You still have a mind to turn him out?  Could ah, you know, really help your firm distract attention from the rake, take and pass through operations. 

 

Hey, RTPTO.  You got somebody else in a big billion dollar scandal, its not likely the press will be able to believe, what the boys at your firm have made off with.  It will be the perfect distraction for some of these media primpers oh i mean anchors... editors?  Oh hell, I always mess these words up when I get too far away from my speech writers.

If dear, dear Eliot S. can communicate to the public that the "bailout" was actually a "bankheist" and properly prosecute all the shills(hank, ben et al) who perpetrated the crime--he will be a national hero, like none for many generations.....He will be the savior of our contry, and a true prophet.  I will hope for this because, this is a real possibility--and i pray for his wellbeing.

Spitzer brings up a good point:  GS paid back the TARP money, but what other kind of government money/guarantees are they receiving that enables them to post record-breaking profits?

If only Spitzer hadn't gone after prostitution in his practice he wouldn't have seen like such an idiot.  I swear to God, i wanted him as president and i still would vote for him.  He is just too good, and not a shill for the private federal reserve system apparently, so that seems to be the why and the wherefore as to why he was taken down....i wish he would get great protection and go on and find the way through to prosecute the paulson/bernake/geithner/all previous fed/treasury/president cozy relationships to expose the very corrupt power of the 1.5 trillion dollar monopoly and all powerful OZ that the fed is for all elected officials.

Oh, and by the way, Spitzer says why wasn't anyone saying why did we give 100cents on the dollar-- i wrote every elected official, every tv station, and dozens of economists--they must have seen the inequity, but the powerbrokers paulson&bernake, agents of the private fed, inc, had everyone terrified that the world would end, and no one felt the courage to question....i thought about emailing Spitzer about this, and i can only say, THANK YOU GOD, THAT EVEN AFTER ALL THIS TIME, HE IS STARTING TO ASK THE QUESTION--NOW IF IT JUST TURNS INTO A REAL HONEST INDICTMENT OF PAULSON/BERNAKE et al, we will be OK, and the world will respect us again--and our currency might hold up.

Wow, one taste of the paid-for ill-nana, and you become the devil incarnate.  However, I do agree about his first year inadequacies as a politician. 

At the same time, as an erudite analyst, I see few who can hold a candle to him.  Would be much better served with him involved in the future of financial markets regulatory oversight.   Is it feasible that he can find a path to redemption?

He needs to get in touch with a few old school Southern TV evangelists to see how to get the redemption job done.

The best we can hope, I think, is that Goldman unilaterally decide to be a force for good in the world, rather than attending community college a Inflator speculator bubbles and busts." Goldman is a faceless, soulless. Blaming "he" will not help. Start naming names, and then we'll see change.

Elliot Spitzer was in such an economically advantaged position, that he was in excellent position to be an effective big-city pol. He actually was one of the very few such public officials to have made some positive efforts and actually had a few achievements which the MSM bothered to report. However, it's difficult to determine who exactly controls the MSM and so I thought I would take a moment to mention the following link to David Brooks video as presented at Huffington Post the other dayGoSeeqlhotels

It is better if banks that lend to people make money lending. Goldman is not a real bank and many of their bets are zero sum, meaning they make money by making other loose or make less (as in propritary trading that widens your spreads). Spitzer is right. vacations packages all inclusive They are getting capital, but not using it in ways that build anything. Furthermore as they keep a high VaR they only encourage others to increase their VaRs and take advantage of the taxpayer hedge while arbitrating the government's low interest loans and the high interest spreads they make. When they make money they keep it all, when they loose the taxpayer will get the bill. We are subsidizing that which we should not be. It is not a good thing.
