This Is Your Knight in Shining Armor? (Part 5)

Trey Smith

When Mr. Obama took office the nation was in the throes of an economic meltdown and financial collapse of bi-partisan origins. Mr. Obama rewarded the most culpable of the policy malefactors with top jobs covering up the mess that they had created. Larry Summers and Timothy Geithner set about rendering the right-wing fantasy of corrupt, incompetent government fact by stuffing the housing agencies full of bank detritus. The Federal Reserve set about restoring the fortunes of the sliver of Americans who own financial assets through several trillion dollars of monetary stimulus while adequate fiscal stimulus was deemed ‘unaffordable.’ Corrupt bankers were universally made whole while the rest of the economy was left to rot.
~ from Meet Barack Obama by Rob Urie ~
This should have been an immediate clue for you liberals who voted for Obama in 2008! After crisscrossing the country during his presidential campaign holding out the carrots of "hope" and "change we can believe in," he filled his cabinet with the same kind of mucks as his predecessor.

As Urie points out, he filled these important posts with the very architects of the financial crisis itself. When a president callously selects wolves to guard the hen house, no one should be surprised to see the wolves licking their chops and rubbing their tummies.

Here we are nearly 4 years later and, not surprisingly, those wolves have gotten very, very fat. Chicken dinners tends to do that for wolves!
