Barack, Barack, Barack . . . We Need To Talk

Barack Tells Detroit to Drop Dead . . .

The White House says neither GM nor Chrysler submitted acceptable plans to receive more bailout money, setting the stage for a crisis in Detroit and putting in motion what could be the final two months of two American auto giants.  President Barack Obama and his top advisers have determined that neither company is viable and that taxpayers will not spend untold billions more to keep the pair of automakers open forever.

But American taxpayers are supposed to keep spending untold billions more to keep those predator banks on Wall Street open forever, aren’t they, Barack.  GM and Chrysler aren’t viable according to you and your fiend Tim at the Treasury Department, but those big banks that imploded and turned America’s financial system into a black hole of toxic debt are still viable.  Yup.  They’re as viable as it gets, they’re so viable they only need a trillion dollars every few months so they don’t China Syndrome themselves right through the planet, blast the Great Wall of China into rubble on the other side, and soar off into space to boldly go where no Masters of the Universe have ever gone before.        

Let’s summarize what’s been happening, shall we?  The big banks tell Barack to jump and he asks them how high. They tell Barack to fetch a stick and he fetches a stick.  They tell Barack to hand them another trillion dollars and lay back down by his dish like a good dog, and he hands them another trillion dollars and lays back down by his dish like a good dog.        

WTF, Barack?   Are you the President of the United States or not?  If you are, START BEHAVING LIKE IT. Americans voted for you because you promised change.  Is kissing Wall Street’s ass change?  I’ll give you a hint: NO.  IT’S NOT CHANGE.  Americans voted for you because they finally noticed that they’ve been getting raped by economic elites for 30 years.  They believed in you, they had faith that you’d stand up for them, but since you got elected, they’ve been getting  raped like they’ve never been raped before, and have to watch while the rapists hand each other bonuses for it.    

Take a look at this guy, Barack:

Those big bankers you keep handing a trillion dollars to are just as psychotic.  They wear nice suits, but they’re just as batshit insane as Charles Manson, and far more dangerous than he ever was.  Can you hear them singing, Barack?  Singing like maniacs who lost their minds long ago . . .

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide,

Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride,

‘Til I get to the bottom and I see you again, yeah, yeah yeah.  

Open your eyes, Barack.  Helter Skelter is coming down fast.

Yeah, I know GM and Chrysler are a mess, but at least they produce something.  They make cars. They don’t make the best cars in the world, but at least they aren’t TOXIC CARS.  What have the big banks you keep bailing out produced?  TOXIC DEBTS, that’s what they’ve produced, toxic debts so massive American taxpayers will still be paying them off a century from now, if the whole country isn’t a smoking hole in the ground long before then.  

Some of us are getting a little restless, Barack . . .

Maybe his parents shouldn’t have told him that he’ll be paying taxes all his life so politicians like you can keep handing a trillion dollars to Wall Street criminals every few months, but unlike YOU, Barack, they’re progressives, they believe in telling the truth, they’ve seen what Wall Street elites have done to this country and they are not going to clap louder just because Daily Kos tells them you have all this under control.  You don’t.  You aren’t even remotely close to having any of this under control, and no press conference put down of a media shithead like Ed Henry is going to change that.        

Digby

People are being asked to make all kinds of concessions these days. They are being asked to cut back hours and pay and forego raises and benefits. They are taking on extra work because the companies aren’t replacing employees who leave. Reports of mistreatment in the workplace are way up.  They are trapped in jobs they hate, with houses they can’t afford, desperately afraid to get sick because if they lose their jobs they lose their health care.

We the People are not going to keep making concessions forever, Barack.  You seem to be intent upon ensuring that government of Wall Street, by Wall Street, and for Wall Street shall not perish from the earth.  Well I have news for you. Citigroup is a rotting corpse, Bank of America is a rotting corpse, Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan Chase and AIG are rotting corpses.  Yeah, their eyes are still open but that doesn’t mean they’re not DEAD. It’s time to bury them, Barack.  Dig a hole, dump them in, cover them up with dirt, sow that stinking grave with quicklime, wash your hands, and start governing like the President you promised us you would be.

    Chrysler gets 30 days to complete Fiat deal, GM 60 days to restructure

    In a dramatic development on the day before President Barack Obama was to unveil his plan for the auto industry, General Motors Corp. Chairman and CEO Rick Wagoner stepped down after the administration asked him to resign. –

    Hands off only applies to Wall Street.  Contracts are only sacrosanct when they apply to WS bonuses.

  1. Do America and the world a favor.  Bury them.

    Only for the creative class who bow to the investors class.

  3. from a way back and I’ve expressed them over and over as to Obama’s limited ability to effectuate the changes, I do believe, he envisioned.  Number one, he has corporate backing, number two, those “forces” in the shadows are STILL with us.  Obama, in the beginning of his presidency, came on strong with actions we liked, but as time goes on, we see him receding more and more from his original positions on so many issues.

    I think he really needs to do some soul searching and decide first, that he can’t satisfy everyone, and second, that he must take a stand on where he’s truly at — rich vs. poor, or poor vs. rich!

    Thanks, Rusty!

    We seem to be stuck in the mud, and the rut just gets deeper and deeper.

    I listen to people and the media talk about how liberal and populist Obama is, and I just want to shake them.  We the people get screwed again.

    Somehow I didn’t think I’d be having to write so many letters to the Pres now that our guy was in.  Oh, how wrong I was.

    Did I ever tell you my cousins wife is related to Manson?  He supposedly killed one of her uncles when he was a boy.  I don’t think he was charged over it though.

  4. The Financials don’t like Detroit nor anything else which produces tangible assets.  Financials like only themselves.

    The Financials are the poster child of the hungry ghost;  there is never enough.  They don’t want BO to bail out Detroit because that would mean less for the Financials, and they want it ALL.

    Poor us!  Obama’s Faustian bargain with the Financials is the black hole sucking the world in.  C’est fini!

  6. pretty soon that little f*&&er is going to have a brick in his hands…….
