Once again our mole in the White House was able to eaves drop on a private conversation in the Oval Office. This meeting was a campaign strategy session involving David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett and Obama.


Axelrod: Mr President I think we need to formulate a strategy for each possible Republican candidate.


Obama: (Dressed in golf clothes he is practicing his putting on a rug over the Presidential Seal.) How long is this golfing ban in effect David?


Jarrett: Until after the election sir.


Axelrod: Okay I think the most likely nominee is Romney. How do we combat him?


Jarrett: Easy... brand his supporters as republican, blue blood, elitist racist.


Axelrod: Okay. What about Perry?


Jarrett: Red neck, backwards, oil tycoon racist.


Axelrod: Gingrich?


Jared: Unethical racist.


Axelrod: Okay what about Cain?


(Silence as all three look at each other.)


Obama: Well he is black and we could sell my positive aspects.


Axelrod: I'm not sure I understand?


Obama: You fool. I'm half white.

Is it just me or does it sound like he is being 'prompted".

His errr..errr..... timing, the closing of the eyes to listen hard....

Totally freaky watching him speak.

And of course, did the G20 mention Libya? I thought not. Tch.

Obama: "Europe is committed to standing behind the euro. The details will have to be worked out."


Yeah. Funny how that works. The devil is always in the details. The devil is always in the details especially when Europe will necessarily (by a basic function of math - i.e. money printing) be pledging to commit hyperinflationary seppuku if they really intend on "saving" the euro.


Obama: "The stock market is 3,000 points higher than when I took office."


Yes, and it's in a verified bear market, and if you're counting on equity market stabilization, let alone a surge, to save your re-election, a) you don't understand politics, and b) you don't have a single clue of any basic matter as to how fundamentally broken the stock "market" is nor how volatility is going to destroy your assumptions. In fact, in 'real' terms, the equity markets are where they were in approximately 1984. I wish the best of luck to those playing the Wall Street Craps table, whether speculators or 401(k) bagholders, because they're going to need every bit of luck they can muster as our Japanification takes place and Nikkei 2.0 cometh.


Obama:  "Italy is a wealthy country blah blah blah."


Riiiight. Italy is a basket case that literally - literally - can never service its debt payments, let alone pay its debt back unless the EU (including Germany) agree to commit hyperinflationary seppuku via the ECB implementing the Bernanke-but-this-time-to-infinity-and-beyond plan.

If you like Italy, you'll love Spain, then France, which are on deck.


Good luck, TOTUS.

Not Off Topic at all -

I ponder what JPM's real exposure to the EU debtapocalypse is. It's an interesting question that grows more interesting as the days pass and the EU's crisis reveals itself as the genuine crisis that it is to even the formerly naive.

Guest Post: Jamie Dimon's Shameful Spouting


TruthInSunshine  Thu, 09/29/2011 - 14:47

Jamie Dimon is a financial terrorist.

Some may say that's hyperbole, but an accurate and methodical analysis of what he and his brethren on Wall Street and in investment banking actually did can lead to no other conclusion that he and they were in large part, although not exclusively (The Federal Reserve, Congress, President, and government regulatory agencies and GSEs share the blame), directly responsible for imploding the global economy, and that what Dimon, his minions and his cohorts did was done intentionally, with full knowledge beforehand that they would profit from it, because they (stealthily) positioned to take financial advantage of the imposion, after rigging the system with explosives.


Jamie Dimon Comfortable w/Europe Exposure - Video Interview


That's fantastic. So if (when) JP Morgan gets whacked due to events in Europe, Jamie Dimon will not request or receive any government, taxpayer bailout teat, and in fact, Dimon will pledge that JPM won't accept any government support. /sarc/

When I entered office, the economy had contracted by 9%.  Now it is growing by 4%.

Yeah, I heard him say that this morning.  Under what new measurement is our economy growing at 4%?  Even the Fed lowered expectations to half of that this week. 

Oh, wait.....I think I know.....maybe it was a freudian tele-slip and he was thinking 4% inflation = 4% growth.....heck, with that type of logic Bernanke can probably assure us that we'll never see negative growth again......or maybe not.
