Either corrupt or massively high on secret government drugs.

Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman of New York should hire Eliot Spitzer to be a special investigator.

How does this compare to the republican agenda to continually blocking any and all attempts to impose regulation on this industry - which led to the situation in the first place?

Republicans were the ones trying to proactively head off the mess at the pass years before it came to a head. Ron Paul, for instance.

Ron Paul is an old retard who was too stupid to practice medicine. He doesn't even have the sense to buy decent shoes.

But seriously, I just got told by another libertaritard that Ron Paul was NOT a Republican. Now you say he is. How about you eat a cock, and come back to me when you figure out what kind of asshole Ron Paul is? Fuck, no wonder that guy doesn't win shit except for his shitty seat in ignorant-as-fuck Texas.

It compares very well, in that it is the same strategy. Obama has yet to do anything as president that GWB would not do or did not do.

While the strategy has been terrible for the economy, the country, and >99% of all Americans, it should make for a brilliant re-election strategy. The new presumed front-runner for the GOP is a Bush clone, which means he won't be able to present anything that Obama hasn't already done as president. Hence anyone voting for him over Obama would be either a racist, deeply partisan to the point of complete blindness, or both. And most people don't want to admit to either, so they would owe it to themselves to vote for Obama's re-election in order to save their own face.

BHO will be fine. He doesn't have a re-election strategy, and doesn't need one. And he prolly knows that. Sure the polls have been saying that between him and the Republican class itself, he would lose today. But when matched up against any of the particular candidate instances of said class, he would prevail.

Decades of jamming racial hyper-sensitivity/awareness and the sentiments of White Liberal Guilt into our heads is not without its payoffs. The media/Left prolly have most Americans half-believing that if they don't re-elect BHO again they maybe that indeed are racist and just aren't aware of it.

It's funny (not really), just a few years ago I wouldn't have guessed that a prez who presided over and sustained such economic misery could get re-elected. But the Left has vastly more influence today over the American mindset than it did in the Carter era. For example I certainly would've never guessed that old people would roll over (even with AARP's help) on the "don't you touch my Medicare!" thing.

In summary, I think we'll see "It's the economy, stupid" has become "It's whatever we tell you it is, stupid people."

Clinton is the guy who made sure they killed Glass-Steigall.

They sucker you with this d/r crap.

It's a bipartisan problem. Check out Senator Ron Wyden D-OR. Sure, he's done some great things lately for sanity in copyright and civil liberties. But he's also majorly in the pocket of Wall Street.

You honestly think an honest man could ever become president of the United States? Or acquire any true position of power? You cannot. You have to be willing and able to fuck people over. Try to think, why are criminals so freely given these positions.. by the very people they are robbing? Or another question, didn't you believe us when we told you Obama was a crook back in 2007? And now, if everybody keeps on playing their roles, he will cruise into a second term to "prevent the wrong lizard from getting in". If you want a choice quote, you can always count on Hollywood. "The higher you go, the crookeder it gets". It's nature's way.. The drive to dominate is instinctive.. The party politics is pure distraction

We need to worship the corporation, for it is Them [] that give us sustenance. If we pray hard enough they will let us work for them. If we mold our lives around their prosperity, then civilization will prosper. It is the Corporation that will let us live in harmony [] .

I'd like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees
And snow-white turtle doves

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I'd like to hold it in my arms
And keep it company

I'd like to see the world for once
All standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills
For peace throughout the land
