Cue the outrage. For months, the Obama administration and members of Congress have known that insurance giant AIG was getting ready to pay huge bonuses while living off government bailouts. It wasn't until the money was flowing and news was trickling out to the public that official Washington rose up in anger and vowed to yank the money back.

Well well well... Cue the outrage Mr. Obama..
You Sir are nothing but a LIAR, a FRAUD, a DISGRACE of a President..
You Sir need more than just hit with a shoe, you need your halo broken, stepped on and burned..
"WE THE PEOPLE" make up of these, our United States Of America..The land where we work hard, raise our children to be TRUTHFUL...
We do not want your lies, your rules for OUR lives, your socialist agenda, your National Civil Service, your "Change"..
"Change we, the people can believe in" is when we see your pathetic of a puppet ass walk out the door of OUR White House, with "Impeached" stamped on your forehead.

On the one hand, we have Obama exhibiting his outrage...
On the other, ...hmm, the other hand, just what is it doing?


I smell a smokescreen brewing with a hint of rotting fish...

Scratching his butt with it, I can not stand the way that we the tax payer has been rapped in this nation.

The AIG is the topic everywhere I go, I mean here in the south all you hear is people mad about what is going on.

Finally people are waking up and putting one and one together.

It makes you wonder why they are adamant about not releasing names and amounts of bonuses received and why all the other banks refuse to account for the money. Wouldn't be surprising if there is a money trail back to the crooks who doled out the money to begin with. I wouldn't be a bit surprised to find out they knew.

Many posts to this Breaking News, but oddly I see NONE from Obama supporters, defending his honor..
Not to worry folks.. When he gets thrown out of OUR White House, he can always get a job on shows like..Oh I don't know..Jay Leno?
Oh and one last note..
I have had a hard time trying to decide just what to do with my $13.00 a week stimulus money. I have, after many sleepless nights, decided to take my $13.00, go to the Shoebelee sale, buy a pair of loafers for $7.00, take one out, and use the remainder $6.00, to ship the one loafer to OUR White House, to kick Obama's ass out with..

how many presidents have accually been impeached? does anyone know off the top of there heads? i just have to say that im inraged as well and i dont even live in the states.. instead of giving away the money to aig they could have given every one in the states 750 000 that would have stopped the housing crash the auto crash small business would rise again (which accounts for 99% of companys in the states)and still leave people with not enough money to live there lifes out so back to work for everyone to keep the money flowing nicely .. just a thought

People act as if they are suprised when a new president comes into office and doesn't do what he campaigned about in the elections. This is nothing new and has been done throughout the ages of politics. Every president to date has done it, promised the populace change and simply fails to deliver on the promise.

Everyone is to quick to point fingers at who has done wrong in this economic situation. It just so happens that Obama took office when the s$%t really started to hit the fan. News flash this has been going on for the better part of a year, this situation that we are in was started during the Bush administration. The only reason people are up in arms about this is because AIG was bailed out by tax payer money. Had they never received a dime of goverment bailout aid no one would give a rats a$$ about the bonuses these executives received.

Do your homework about the economic situation that this country is facing, it all stems back to policies that were implemented by a previous administration. Subprime lending to people that were not credit worthy, all of this boils down to greed by the banking industry and the government. Give balloon loans to people that are not educated enough to understand that in 2 years that $700 a month mortgage is going to double. All this while you had the president telling the American people to go out and live the American dream and spend spend spend!

I am not an Obama supporter, I am not a democrat and I am not a republican. It is time for a revision of the government parties, I personally hold both the democrat and republican parties at fault for the current situation our county faces. It is time for the American people to hold the government accountable for their actions.

The Obama administrations faux-outrage over AIG is

Obama and his ilk are liars, like the rest of them.
So where's the change?

Should Congress be held accountable as well for their lack of vision and culpability in this AIG debacle? While they give themselves raises for the same lack of performance as AIG. Meanwhile why we are loosing our jobs and homes. We are being asked to cut back, due without, and sacrifice, while these scumbags get away with murder.

I'm disgusted.

The more I see and read of this man, the more I become disgusted. If he's not doing this insidiously on purpose (as the stereotypical Chicago politician) then he's an absolute, totally incompetent fool!

Well, what do you expect? Its easy to keep your mouth shut when AIG is lining your campaign coffers with cash. Obama was the 2nd largest recipient of AIG campaign contributions in 2008, for a total of $101,332, just slightly less than what they gave Christopher Dodd.

Now that he doesn't need them, they're a convenient scapegoat. If Obama wants to blame someone, he should look in a mirror. Don't get me wrong, these AIG execs deserve whatever is coming to them, but as I said a few days ago, these AIG bonuses are a tiny drop in the bucket compared to that $787 billion stimulus package. Much of that money was blown in a similar fashion or invested overseas, thanks to the fact that your elected dummies didn't think to put safeguards and conditions upon the usage of the funds.

Your using Rush Limbaugh as a source?

obama knew about it since Friday. Hardly months. Geightner knew about since Wed.


How would Obama know about if months when he hasn't even been in office for two? If that is the case, Bush is at fault since he issued the first bailout.

get your facts straight.

They knew about it.

Hell, Dodd wrote the part of the Stimulus Bill legislation that covered these bonuses to begin with.

For them to say they didn't know anything about this shows either utter ignorance or shameless dishonesty.

YOU..need to read more and get your facts straight..Did you even read my news source from AP??? Here is thier quote:



WASHINGTON (AP) — Cue the outrage. For months, the Obama administration and members of Congress have known that insurance giant AIG was getting ready to pay huge bonuses while living off government bailouts. It wasn't until the money was flowing and news was trickling out to the public that official Washington rose up in anger and vowed to yank the money back.


It says..FOR MONTHS, the OBAMA administration and members of congress have known... What?..do you think they kept it a big secret from Obama??..lol Maybe you were born at night, but was it last night???
Obama knew, Geithner, as I have shown with my original post, worked relentlessly, Nov. 2008, on AIG's ORIGINAL Rescue Plan, and unless Geithner was/is a complete MORON, he would have known about the bonus contracts...They know it, we the people know it, and Obama sure as the hell knew it...His Choking "outrage" on tv Mon. was an ACT!
As my using Rush as a source..your damn right I did, since he's been saying the same facts for months.. And does it not strike anyone odd, that it is RUSH who this admin. has been bashing for the past month??? WHY? They wanted to shut up Rush, because he was spilling the beans on Obama, Geithner, AIG, and we the people were listening, doing our own homework, our research, finding it was true.
Well, I guess they can't shut up everyone..now can they..
Maybe the Democraps can take thier kickbacks from AIG, buy up all billboards, put my face, and millions of others like me, who speak the truth about Obama, and plaster them out there for all to see, just like they are doing Rush...My suggestion to them is to save that kickback money for when "we the people" kick thier ass's to the curb...
My suggestion to you..go run for a democrap office, where you will fit in perfectly....
