The Hits Begining To Land?

After all of Glorious Leader’s teflon deflections of anything wrong over the past 2+ years of campaigning, with respect to the latest fiasco surrounding the Treasury Secretary’s inability to get anything right is showing a chink in the armor.

Even Dilbert Gibbs could not find the words to answer some poignant questioning by White House press people.

Timmy Taxman On The Trail

AIG was too big to fail, so Bush and company bailed them out. Then, it wasn’t working, so the new guys bailed them out again. The company is hemorrhaging money faster than my son with his new girlfriend.

So AIG now wants to give their people bonuses for working hard (debatable). Tim Geither, our resident tax-cheat in charge, ran to them and asked that they not pay those hideous bonuses because, well, it would not be a nice thing to do.

Didn’t Obama already say they he was capping salary and bonuses for executives? Oh yes. The freeze does not count for current bailoutees, but only for future companies getting a bailout. I guess Obama and his team foresee many more industries needing Uncle Nanny’s help.

I am not in favor of the failing execs getting big money. I am in favor of letting them fail. However, their CEO has a good argument. If we cap salaries, if we limit bonuses, those bright minds are going to go elsewhere. What to do then?

Maybe that is how we will get the middle class working again. With no executives worth a crap remaining, we can get some of those poor homeless guys a job. Paging Billy Ray Valentine!

The Artful Dodger

That is the new name for Timothy Geithner, though it may be considered slanderous to the original Dicken’s character.

Dr. Helen has a great bit about how those who are honest and hardworking are demonized as tax dodgers when people like Geithner are given a pass.
I don’t think we really need any more proof about the bias in the media, but this one is dead-on accurate.
