The 1% surely are having fun with their latest hat trick. Is general a good word these days?
In a scene of abject humiliation reminiscing of W serving fried chicken to the press corps by the pool in Crawdord – no indoor access allowed, Bloomberg yucked it up with the press over pizza squares
“I know only five of you in here have actual press credentials,” Bloomberg reportedly quipped, a reference to his office’s assertion that a mere five of the twenty-six journalists arrested overall displayed city-issued press passes.
“There were so many little jokes” about OWS over the course of the night, Nida Khan, a reporter/producer who attended told me. “You could see the awkward reaction from people in the room. Some laughed at these jokes, others were just uncomfortable.”
and here’s the explanation of the photo above
One of the gifts was a tarp that Seifman said “they picked up from the Sanitation Department on the West Side,” Khan recalled. This, of course, was a mocking reference to the NYPD’s forced seizure of tarps, tents, laptops, and many other items in Zuccotti Park, which were thrown into sanitation trucks and dumped in a massive pile at a warehouse-type facility on West 57th Street.
I found it interesting that while his henchmen were worried about the “optics” of such photo, Bloomberg didn’t care. After all, he has an army, why should he?
Showing that we learned nothing, Kelly and the tabloids continue with W’s stupid bravado.
A bit ridiculous too 10 years after
Besides, airplanes may not be the only way to skin a cat you pathetic idiots!.
No wonder David Brooks admires him so!
He just revealed his deep contempt for people – more so than before – talking about the foreclosures
“And we’re always trying to find that sweet spot to use as much of the money that we have available to us to help those who can be helped, without wasting that money on folks who don’t deserve help,” he continued. “And that’s a tough balance to strike.”
Geez, I thought the balance was between fraudulent banks and homeowners!
What a right wing talking point! The sweet spot!
I don’t remember trying to select the deserving from the undeserving when shoveling our treasury to Wall Street!
Apparently he has a simple solution for it all
Obama pointed out that what’s driving foreclosures nowadays is the jobs crisis, rather than predatory lending and exploding mortgages. “And so the single most important thing I can do for the housing market is actually improve economic growth as a whole,” he said. “If we can get the economy moving stronger, if we can drive the unemployment rate down, that will have probably the biggest impact on foreclosures, as well as housing prices, as just about anything. “
The short of it: leave the banks alone! Wait for “heck of a job” Summers to find a solution to it all!
On edit, found a Ted Rall strip that fits
I was noticing recently that Obama is reviving his arrogant “bitter” comments from 2008.
But if in 2008 he felt the need to backtrack and pretend to apologize, this time, with the outcome of November a fargone conclusion, he is letting lose.
Pans a R blog:
Once again, Obama is looking at the ants
“Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time is because we’re hardwired not to always think clearly when we’re scared,” Obama said Saturday evening in remarks at a small Democratic fundraiser Saturday evening. “And the country’s scared.”
And this time he is making it clear why he knows better than we do
You see, little people? He is the POTUS and can spit on your heads.
Reminds me of SNL’s Chevvy Chase tag
So little does he care what we think anymore he even promised
He means for us. Not for him.
