Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi are all about changing America: and not necessarily the old fashioned way with public debate, wise congressional deliberation, laws and courts.
This is now about anything to win.
President Obama’s “outrage” at AIG paying bonuses is theater of the absurd. He could care less about $165 million. He sits atop a several trillion dollar empire in real trouble. What he wants is to demonize Wall Street, “Big Business” and the leadership of the “old” capitalisim, just as he demonized “big oil.”
By rushing his economic stimulus through congress, and in the confusion making sure bonus money for corporations like AIG was protected, the White House, Treasury and perhaps even the Fed engineered the AIG outrage in order to overhaul regulations governing American business.
You’ll never convince me otherwise and you’ll never convince me that Chris Dodd or Tim Geithner has the brains or the stones to do this on their own. Obama and Rahm Emanuel certainly might….
Now the president will go on Jay Leno: the first sitting president to appear on the “Tonight Show” — more blatant blurring of news and entertainment and from whom? Barack Obama and the National Barack Channel (NBC).
More do anything to win. We expect him to host SNL soon — to diffuse their comedic cynicism.
And then we have Nancy Pelosi, the third in line to the presidency, virtually telling illegal immigrants to violate the law: that the law is “Un-American.”
Well, here’s more “anything to win” — changing law by illegal acts and shenanigans.
If Nancy wants to make good law; she is in the catbird seat to do so. The Speaker of the House knows how to make good law and how to defeat those that stand in her way too….
Pelosi made the stimulus bill and Obama has already offered her the health care revolution. But she’s not satisfied yet: now she’ll rewrite immigration law by not picking up a pen: she’ll use the microphone.
Pelosi Urges Illegal Immigrants to Ignore The Law?
