    Were Barney and NObama the same guys that were shrieking “WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING NOW” just a few months ago? The same guys that voted the money to go to AIG WITHOUT any strings attached?
    Come on…my memory is bad but it isn’t that bad.

    Yes! Barney is even better at being a drama queen than BHO is

    Besides being incompetent, he is pretty entertaining to watch. It is funny that he can be so self righteous when a good portion of the blame for the mortgage mess is his. I hope he is voted out the next time he is up for election.

    Just watched the messiah swing his head back & forth as he goes between teleprompters & watched him stutter as he looks for the tele in the podium. What a performance, I'm sure the lefty's are swooning.

    But here's what I've noticed, as his babble flows, there is something for everyone in his discussion. But the majority of the meat is a leadin to his socialist tendencies.

    What I have also noticed, apparently Civics is no longer taught within the lefty's government school system. It is the function of the Legislative body to put into place policies by which this country operates, if they disagree with the existing policy they should arrange to change same. It is then the function of the Executive branch to ensure those poliices are adhered to, not to micromanage what individual companies do or don't do. Apparently, none of the elected have an understanding of their position in the Chain of Command. The Judicial gets to referee.

    This guy is beginning to make Jimmy C look presidential, You don't run a presidency with trash talk.

    BTW, when GW was interviewed briefly this AM on his way to a speaking engagement - he again showed what a class act he is by refusing to criticize the sitting POTUS, though the messiah is making himself a real target.

    The real question is why they favour voiding individual contracts but union contracts at worst just need renegotiating, generally to include added benefits in exchange for minor concessions.

    Much of those bonuses are to foreign nationals that work for AIG. AIG has offices around the world. The Gov can't tax non-USAcitizens.

    This mess is due to the inexperience of Obomo and his staff.

    A contract is a contract ... unless amended by the participating parties.

    AIG execs would have been so much smarter to realize that the spit would hit the fan when the bonuses became common knowledge. They could have voluntarily amended their contracts, knowing that the company was in such financial distress. Evidently, there were some execs who did so. The ones who resigned (mentioned in another thread) maybe just decided to take their money & run. Probably have enough dough now to retire on very comfortably.

    Their "talent" would not go un-noticed, I think. They might have a tough time finding another job in the financial industry.

    I guess that's the tactful way to put it. This mess is due to the sheer stupidity of Obomo and staff. Inexperience and ignorance can be fixed. Obomo and company are like a bunch of pirates that just discovered a treasure chest of loot and are busy fighting over divvying it up.

    Yes to voiding contracts in both instances. It's not okay for some laws to be broken and others not.

    M Remington, I don't think you would be in favor of voiding the contracts if you were the one receiving the money.

    I guess you believe all contracts are worthless. Very Sad
