More AIG, Malfeasance from Bush & GOP

I Don't Care About AIG's Bonuses

Well, I do, and I still care about the trillions of dollars wasted in Iraq - including those pallets of cash (over half of which probably went into AlQ's pockets, as a "thanks" for helping keep the Bushies in power) and sweetheart contracts to Haliburton, KBR and Blackwater!

IMO, the GOP is pushing this crap to a frenzy to a) bring down Obama in revenge for him actually winning, b) distract people from demanding an accounting for their activities in Iraq and Afghanistan, c) distract pedople from their own corruption, and d) as a way of pissing in the well that they have been made to realize that they no longer own.

The pigopolists and the GOP need to worry about this strategy, though, because once people start asking those hard questions, it is very hard to stop it. The obscene costs and shady deals of the Iraq mess *will* be brought up, again and again, until we get the real answers. If the Obama administration and Congress don't want to get answers for us, then we will keep dumping incumbents out until we find those who will.

The thing is, those in (temporary) power either do not know their history or think that the illusion of civilization we project will protect them as they cry "Let them eat cake!" at the starving and homeless masses. There is going to be a feeding frenzy on the elite that will make the French Revolution look like a picnic in the park.

I'm mad as hel over those bonuses too. Apparently if you loose your company billions you can get a big fat bonus and if you make money for your company you get laid off.

I'd like to see some real serious digging into what the republicans did financially while in office though. They cost us trillions and no one seems to care. I really think these new "policies" of theirs are going to backfire. Hoping so. Ok, you lost the election. Why? Why can't you grow up just a bit?

I wouldn't pin too many hopes on Obama forcing the issue of forcing the AIG to display accountability.

Over the years they've been his largest single campaign contributor.
