Looks like the repubs that still remain in congress stepped up the plate to support their benefactors by stopping the tax penalty on these crooks grabbing money through their exec bonus plans. These swindlers in investment banking destroyed out economy over the last 12 years since Gingrich and company deregulated banking and investment. People who want to blame this on Obama after two months in office are delusional.

It's not a misdirection. All he's saying is that all politicians have to whore themselves out for campaign money.. It is not a partisan issue. That's exactly what I said in my last post too. Its happened for decades and it will continue to happen. But let's focus on Obama instead of our real problems right? Anything to avoid the real causes of these problems and attack the man the Republicans hate so much.

If you've listened to talk radio at all in the past few weeks, all you hear is a bunch of Obama babbling about how he's destroying our country. Get a friggin' grip on reality you guys..He's been in office for 8 weeks? And now Republicans/conservatives are already talking about the apocalypse? People need to pull it together and stop acting like a bunch of whiny 4th graders. We have real problems and if we don't solve them they will be left for our children. Our kids dont' deserve to bear the brunt of these cowardly politicians on both sides of the aisle that refuse to pass any meaningful legislation that would amount to any real permanent economic changes for the better.

All they do is twiddle their thumbs, print money from thin air, and give our money to the very people who desroyed our economy in the first place. How does that amount to anything even resembling a solution? Yet both parties seem to be SOOO excited about these bailouts and we will inevitably see more of them. But hey, Whatever it takes to add on that little earmark that goes under the radar.. We have become a nation of cowards and babies and we are completely unwilling to face the reality that if we don't change now we could very well destroy what is so great about this country. We do that, we destroy the futures of our children and their children.

If you check the facts of the AIG bailout, you will learn that neither Obama nor Congress was responsible for the AIG bailout, it was The Fed. No one consulted Congress or Senator Obama for approval.
President Bush had Sec. Paulson work with the Fed and with AIG to hammer out the conditions of the bailout.

U.S. to Take Over AIG in $85 Billion Bailout

Congressional approval was neither sought nor required under The Federal Reserve Act.

President Obama's administration has not given one penny to help AIG since he took office.

Well wow no wonder he wanted to help. I wonder if he will be like the 15 or so who are returning the bonuses. This is just ridiculous!
