Hypocrite-in-Chief

A simple question with what is probably an easy answer.

Are the President and his campaign team not nearly as bright as they are made out to be or are they so arrogant and out of touch that they think no one will call them on it?

Being the obedient mutt he is, wolfman performed his Pavlovian duty by posting the latest ad from the Obama campaign team attacking Mitt Romney and private equity firm Bain Capital. And even though wolfie probably earned a Snausage for his work, he was predictably smacked around for his loose association with the truth and limited attention to detail.

Roughly around the same time the GST Steel ad was released, President Obama attended a $35,800/plate fundraiser at the residence of Blackstone Group's CEO Hamilton "Tony" James. With over 60 attendees, President Obama walked away with over $2 million in campaign contributions.

If you're not familiar with Blackstone Group, it is the nation's largest private equity firm. Wait a minute...isn't Bain Capital also a private equity firm? And didn't the President just get done telling everyone that private equity firms like Bain are "vulture capitalists" who raid companies for profit while turning out the employees? That must mean that Blackstone Group isn't one of those "evil" private equity firms, right? Right??

Let us turn back to August 2006. According to the linked articles, only two months after purchasing Travelport Ltd., Blackstone fired "scores of employees". Ultimately, Blackstone laid off roughly 10% of Travelport's workforce (841 people) while recouping all of the money it had invested in the company.

So again I ask, are the President and his campaign team not nearly as bright as they are made out to be or are they so arrogant and out of touch that they think no one will call them on it?

The answer? Both. Definitively both.

And don't even get me started on President Obama's complete perversion of the word "fair".

No votes yet

We need another President like Carter. Say what you will about some of his failures, but he was more a man of the people than every elitist sonuvabitch in the office since.

Sadly, the 2012 Presidential selection is already over. America will elect Obama or Romney, but those have already been selected by Wall Street. That means 4 more years of bailout and stimulus and borrowing and overall total banker domination of the economy, which is bad for any person who works a day's labor for a wage.

But if a President Romney went down the "bailout" path, he would be a one-termer like Obama. The problem there being that a Dem would in all likelihood replace Romney in 2016. I almost (almost, not quite) hope BO does get in again, as he would be a lame duck president 2 years out.

And then a real conservative, like Rick Santorum can run in 2016. Dole, McCain, Romney - when will conservatives be able to reverse this loser trend? I figured Romney would run a bad campaign. But not THIS bad. It's depressing.
