Matt Taibbi: Obama's Big Sellout to Wall Street
by Matt Taibbi

      Rolling Stone - 2009-12-09

The president has packed his economic team with Wall Street insiders intent on turning the bailout into an all-out giveaway

Barack Obama ran for president as a man of the people, standing up to Wall Street as the global economy melted down in that fateful fall of 2008.

Obama may not have run to the left of Samuel Gompers or Cesar Chavez, but it's not like you saw him on the campaign trail flanked by bankers from Citigroup and Goldman Sachs. What inspired supporters who pushed him to his historic win was the sense that a genuine outsider was finally breaking into an exclusive club, that walls were being torn down, that things were, for lack of a better or more specific term, changing.

Then he got elected.

Disillusioned. He was an empty suit from day one. A bunch of thugs from Chicago up for sale. No one on wall street was afraid of this guy. Then he gave jobs to summers, geithner, and now Elizabeth Warren (regulators! Mount up!).

HL Meneken said it best: you only ever vote against things. Never for anything.

Years of the Modern

by Walt Whitman
(1819-1892)
Years of the modern! years of the unperform'd!
Your horizon rises, I see it parting away for more august dramas,
I see not America only, not only Liberty's nation but other nations preparing,
I see tremendous entrances and exits, new combinations, the solidarity of races,
I see that force advancing with irresistible power on the world's stage,
(Have the old forces, the old wars, played their parts? are the acts suitable to them closed?)
I see Freedom, completely arm'd and victorious and very haughty,
with Law on one side and Peace on the other,
A stupendous trio all issuing forth against the idea of caste;
What historic denouements are these we so rapidly approach?
I see men marching and countermarching by swift millions,
I see the frontiers and boundaries of the old aristocracies broken,
I see the landmarks of European kings removed,
I see this day the People beginning their landmarks, (all others give way;)
Never were such sharp questions ask'd as this day,
Never was average man, his soul, more energetic, more like a God,
Lo, how he urges and urges, leaving the masses no rest!
His daring foot is on land and sea everywhere, he colonizes the Pacific, the archipelagoes,
With the steamship, the electric telegraph, the newspaper, the wholesale engines of war,
With these and the world-spreading factories he interlinks all geography, all lands;
What whispers are these O lands, running ahead of you, passing under the seas?
Are all nations communing? is there going to be but one heart to the globe?
Is humanity forming en-masse? for lo, tyrants tremble, crowns grow dim,
The earth, restive, confronts a new era, perhaps a general divine war,
No one knows what will happen next, such portents fill the days and nights;
Years prophetical! the space ahead as I walk, as I vainly try to pierce it, is full of phantoms,
Unborn deeds, things soon to be, project their shapes around me,
This incredible rush and heat, this strange ecstatic fever of dreams O years!
Your dreams O years, how they penetrate through me! (I know not whether I sleep or wake;)
The perform'd America and Europe grow dim, retiring in shadow behind me,
The unperform'd, more gigantic than ever, advance, advance upon me.

If the Obama Administration is really upset with S&P for downgraded our nation’s debt, then they should go after this rating agency for deliberately keeping the mortgage market artificially inflated by continuing to give mortgage-backed securities a AAA rating when they should have been rating them as junk. But the Obama Administration won’t do this because if they did, then they would also have to go after Goldman Sachs for lying to their investors about how mortgage-backed securities were a safe and secure investment.

And we know that Goldman was lying about this because there is no other way to explain how they made enormous profits by making side bets that the mortgage market would collapse. But with a presidential election just around the corner, the Obama Administration can’t afford to expose the fact that their largest campaign donor should be put behind bars. And Obama is too consumed by greed to ever turn down any of the lucrative deals that awaits him when he leaves public office, courtesy of Goldman Sachs.

In order for Obama to maximize his own personal wealth, he knows, as any aider and abettor of financial crimes would know, that he must protect Goldman at all costs.

There is a 15% disparity between those who support his policies and direction (37%), and those who "like" him. The reason that it exists, is too many people are afraid to voice displeasure of him personally, for fear of having that red "R" carved in their foreheads. Anxious to see if they'll grow any onions in the voting booth!

Is there no escaping these idiots in government?

April 19, 2011 "An Orange County Republican Party official who sent an email that portrays President Obama's face superimposed on a chimpanzee with the words: "Now you know why -- No birth certificate!" apologized for her action but insisted she's not a racist.

...Davenport had said "in no way did I even consider the fact he's half black when I sent out the email."

That will be the day that I would use the precious time I have on this earth watching or listening or reading a politician.

I think, no I'm sure, that I would rather have boiling oil poured in my ears and very sharp screw-type gutter spikes pushed violently into my eyes.

You shouldn't encourage anyone to do this more than once a month, if that.

Once media stops paying constant attention to their every utterance, and instead focuses on their voting record, their police record, their campaign promises vs their performance, in other words their RESULTS, maybe then they'll wise up and govern with some sense of honor, morality, legality, justice, and common sense.

In the meantime I will wait with bait on my breath for the Messiah instead.

With the headline of deficit reduction, he gives introductory remarks replete with spending initiatives.  Then he rallies his troops around the word "fair."  What the fuck is this guy talking about?  Does he ever notice that nothing he says actually makes any sense?  Green energy expenditures, Pell grants, veteran post traumatic stress care...and on and on....yeah, sounds like we are well on our way to deficit reduction.

So as our president literally demonstrates his disassociated logic, it seems fitting then that we should go ahead and rally the market and forget about the S&P downgrade of expectations because, after all, everything Obama is saying right now is probably already fucking "priced in."

Hello again, cosmic bunny hole.

Define, "Be There"?

If ten cents is in the fund to pay you, technically, it's "There".

These con artists are just fellow Clintonites who have managed to use language and the prostitutes in the media to "perform".

They are all just actors. It's all just a fiction. A distraction, for the brain-dead, an amusement.
