"Washington is all in a tizzy and everybody is pointing fingers at each other and saying it's their fault, the Democrats' fault, the Republicans' fault," he said at a town hall meeting Wednesday. "Listen, I'll take responsibility. I'm the President."That's impressive. BHO says he'll take the blame, then immediately says it really isn't his fault. That's reassuring.
He also make(s) clear that it isn't really his fault. "We didn't grant these contracts," he said.
I'm worn out with politicians like BHO saying "I'll take the blame." What does that mean? I really don't care if he takes the blame or not. How about doing things right instead of telling us that he'll accept the blame.
The real issue has almost nothing to do with the executive bonuses. All that is a huge red herring intended to divert we the peoples' attention away from the real problem. The real problem is federal intervention in private enterprise. The real problem is the lousy butts of financial giants that are being bailed out by the Treasury and the Fed. The real problem is the violation of the Constitution by the Treasury, Congress, and the Fed by buying ownership in AIG with tax dollars in the first place. Wake up, folks!
$165 million paid in bonuses to AIG executives is literally chicken feed when lined up beside the bailout hundreds of billions of dollars and the hundreds of billions of dollars in the Pork Pool Bill, er ... stimulus bill the politicians of the "Incumbent Party" passed a couple of weeks ago. Never mind Republican or Democrat. It's the Incumbent Party that rules.
