Epic fail obama: Wall Street…

“Strangely enough — for a bill that allegedly sticks it to Wall Street — during the Senate Banking Committee hearing [last] week, Goldman Sachs chairman Lloyd Blankfein endorsed the Dodd bill. Someone should have asked him who from Goldman wrote it. In 2008, Goldman employees gave a record-breaking $1,007,370 to the Obama campaign. This year, the ‘securities and investment’ industry has already given twice as much money to the Democrats as to the Republicans. ABC News reports that ‘the five biggest hedge fund donors all gave almost all their donations to Democrats.’ Among the biggest recipients of hedge fund money were Senators Harry Reid (Democrat), Chris Dodd (Democrat) and Charles Schumer (Democrat). Even with the evidence right in front of their eyes, people still believe that it’s the Republicans who are in Wall Street’s pocket. How out of touch with reality would a comedy writer have to be to write the following joke for Jay Leno [last] week: ‘The head of Goldman Sachs was going through security and was asked to empty his pockets — and five Republican senators fell out.’ Why didn’t Barack Obama or Chuck Schumer fall out? Why not Rahm Emanuel, who worked for Goldman? Or Greg Craig, who used to work for Obama but just took a job with Goldman? The fact that anyone laughed at that joke proves that Republicans have a serious PR problem.” –columnist Ann Coulter

“The [U.S.] Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individuals … it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the conduct of the government … it is not a charter for government power, but a charter of the citizen’s protection against the government.” –philosopher and novelist Ayn Rand (1905-1982)
