Watch Live As Obama Says This And That About Jobs

Tyler Durden's picture


The T2OTUS (Televangelizing Teleprompter) or just T2, is taking center stage to talk more about his now failed jobs plan, supposedly without cheesy chanting of "pass this bill" this time (however, we won't put readers at risk of alcohol poisoning with another shots challenge - the last time that was the keyword, there were numerous casualties). While it is certain the speech will be filled with class warfare rhetoric, and the usual stuff about how many jobs Obama has "saved or created" we doubt much if anything relevant will be said. As for comedic content.... that's a different story.

At the rate he and his administration are going, the only debate may be whether he's tried for treason or merely impeached.

From Drudge:

Obama: Occupy Wall Street protests show Americans' frustration


"Not only did the financial sector, with the Republican Party in Congress, fight us every step in the way. But now you've got these same folks arguing we should roll back all those reforms and go back to the way it was," Obama said. "That does not make sense to the American people. They are frustrated by it and they will continue to be frustrated by it until they get the sense that everyone is playing by the same rules."

(article here)

What rules is he talking about? If anyone was following any rules at all in his administration, we'd have bankers in orange jump suits in front of judges... years ago. The SEC and other regulatory agencies would be investigating market fraud and manipulation. And, instead of handing guns to drug gangs in foreign countries, Eric Holder would be heading all this up.

But, as usual, the only 'rules' are those that apply to the little people - and they are happy to enforce those with zealous conviction.

 If its a Perry or Romney status quo talking points moron there will be little if any fireworks.

 If on the other hand someone fiscally intelligent were to be the GOP nominee like Ron Paul I feel certain that Obama would get quite literally destroyed on national TV.

 Now THAT would be epic.

 Im still hoping the Judge will decide to be his VP running mate.

He will leave office before election, he is not as smooth as he used to be.  He realizes that he is losing his supply of Kool-aid that everyone drank (how stupid is our population to put this clown in office).

The only chance the dems have is to get him out and bring in another idiot to push their plan.

He is in way over his head, and will take a long trip and not come back.  Nothing presidential about him.

SNARC: Also the banks have the right to charge what ever fees they want but it is bad practice. We need a consumer protection advocate to make sure the banks charge fair fees for the ability manage you money online, via ATMs and have instant access anywhere in the world. That should be free. You should not have to pay 5 month. You should not have to go to a local credit union. You should not have to pull out an extra $60 in cash when you make your ATM transaction so you dont have to do it again next week.

I mean think about how the government does our banking. We have a 60,000 page tax code that the average citezen spends 40 hours per year completing. You dont have to have pay $5 to get a good tax attorney. Look at my secretary of tresury. He does his own taxes. Thats how things should be done.

The rest of them get some tar to fill in holes the size of Buicks.

More sunshine needs to be put on the fellow travelers in politics, media and banking that write speeches for this dude.

Its clear they are going to lump more pressure on him from Solyndra and Fast and Furious.

Will he abdicate to Hillary? Will there even be a election in 2012?

I have had the feeling for sometime there would not be any elections in 2012. After the stories than ran in the past week, it seems the idea is being brought up by some Dems... Just sayn'

I've maintained for some time now that we have seen our last election. Not that they mattered much to begin with. But now I believe that we have our dear leader for life.

Thank you, President Obama, for restoring the anger of the people.  We needed to wake up, and it took a communist like you to do it.

I can feel sympathy for the occupy WS people. But you know what pisses me off about them? Not a single one of em was bitching when they qualified for a house in 2004 and sold it in 2007 for $100,000 profit. 

That bubble and credit crisis required nationwide participation and people refuse to accept responsibility. I remember people driving around in hummers with two homes full of flat screen t.vs and they weaving baskets twice a week for work. No bullshit I remember reading in the WS about a Mariachi Dancer whom qualified for a $500,000 mortgage (you really think he thought he could afford that)

This playing victim shit is really getting old.

Now Obama is talking about fraud on WS. What about the fraud that was occuring on Main Street? Yea, people were misrepresenting their income, assets, the whole 9 yards to get qualified for loans. 

And lecturing on fraud while Solyndra and Too fast Too furious are still on the front burner is the new killing it.

The banks had control of the process.  It is called underwriting.  They could have stopped the whole bubble in its tracks, but that wouldn't have been profitable.  Ask me about a NINJA loan, and I will tell you your out of your mind to lend anyone even a nickel without verifying income, employment, credit scores, etc.  Bob would you lend your 2.4 million dollars to me based on a liar loan.  If not why did the captains of finance lend so much?

The fed and the gov were all in on the 3 card monte moral hazard. As Bob mentioned, the insitutions and individuals  (banking or investment) who did not want to play were quickly and forcibly aquired using benny buck by the ones that would play ball.  Drink the Kool-aid or else.

The comminuty re-investment act without glass stegal was one of those first four really bad horses in the old book. Not the unicorn shitting skittles that people think the clinton and bush II years were.

No I wouldn't. On the same tolken I wouldn't lie on my loan application (which was RAMPANT) that's why they were called liar loans because the people whom were taking out the loans were providing fradulent information. I also wouldn't take out a jumbo mortgage if I was working at Mcdonalds either because I would know I wouldn't be able to pay it back with the income I was earning. You also had 'home flippers' buying 7,8,9 houses at a time just to sell them in a year (yea and they made millions doing that)

I'm not saying WS had no part of this, don't get me wrong here. I'm saying that EVERYONE participated in the scam. When I say everyone I mean mortgagees, lenders, real-estate agents, apprasiers, bankers, politicians, etc. Everyone had their hand in the pie and everyone enjoyed it while it lasted.

And people said WS got bailed out but not main street. Really? 

There are people who have been living in their home for FOUR YEARS AND HAVEN'T MADE A MORTGAGE PAYMENT

If your mortgage payment is a paltry $2,000 over 4 years that's $100,000. If you have a payment of say $4,000 that's almost $200,000.
