Today Barry took the bank CEOs to the woodshed.
And the bank CEOs went with him.
The absolute absurdity astounds intelligent people.
At what point do these bankers stand up for themselves and their country?
Where was the CEO who looked at Obama and said,
“Mr. President, perhaps you don’t realize it, but you are a servant of the people, not a ruler. We hired you, not the other way around.
“Your job is to enforce the laws, not to tell us what to do. Simply, you lack that authority no matter how much you wish – or fantasize- that you have it.
“You have neither the responsibility nor the authority to do what you are doing. In this country the private sector decides how to run itself and if they fail, they fail. Congress – not you – may regulate us as they wish, but at no time do you, Mr. President, have the authority to tell us what to do, to fire company employees, to tell us how to pay ourselves or our employees, or anything else that is a part of the private sector.
“If you wish to be a ruler, please move to country whose population desires to be your subjects. We don’t do ‘subjects’ in the United States. We are citizens of a Republic who by some quirk of fate have hired you to enforce our laws, but NOT to rule us.
And they ought to have risen and walked out.
Are these bankers all stockholm-syndrome candidates – or WHAT?
First McCain didn’t bother to campaign or tell the voters the truth about the financial disaster, and now these bankers are playing along with this clown.
Won’t someone who matters STAND UP!?!
It is difficult to believe, but evidently true, that these men lack the collective balls to stand up for themselves, their companies, their families, their country and their way of life.
They can then walk outside to the pres and say –
“Obama hasn’t the authority to do this; he thinks he’s a ruler – but he isn’t. Evidently not growing up or being educated here has left him with a complete lack of understanding of how our country works. If he wants to have all the banks fail by taking back the TARP money many of us are trying already to give back but his administration won’t let us, then he ought to have the balls to tell the country that’s what he wants to do – have us fail because of the outgrowth of Democratic policies like CRA. But he lacks the authority to do what he is demanding of us.
“Each of you citizens listening to or reading what I am saying needs to stand up for yourself, your family, your company, your job, your country and your future and stop this crap. No one in America wants to live in a socialist country with no jobs, no future, the rule of men instead of the rule of law – but that is EXACTLY where Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Frank, Schumer, and their RICO colleagues are taking you and you had better understand it now and do something about it – fast.
“For make no mistake about it, this bastard of a president is turning your country into the rule of one man – not the rule of law.
“That is called a dictatorship.
“America will not survive that way and every intelligent person knows this. The rule of man was the Soviet Union. Is that what you really want? To be subjects of a man – or citizens of a republic?”
And then walk away.
And if you, Dear Reader, are not angry , you are not paying attention.
