Faux outrage from dems act to look populist

Looks like they avoided potential lawsuits and left them an out to get some of it back. I know you have a simple mind that can only grasp Limbaugh type momentary outrages until the next shiny object comes into view, but just perhaps these people have a more nuanced look at how things can actually get done, and not just knee jerk react to the issue of the moment in order to placate people like you.[/QUOTE]

Maybe you should read the rest of my posts before you say that. I make personal attacks against G5 because reason and intellectual honesty have no effect.

And FYI - we ALL make personal attacks here, it's a sign of affection. Except for G5, he really is an idiot.

You should just stop at

I have no idea of the inner workings

because you're exactly right.

And look at the details of what IS known and make a determination. If this administration/congress were MORE transparent and honest with the American people...this could've been avoided. Now we know WHY they didn't want people reading this before it was rushed to be signed...AND have the great One's signature on it despite his guarantees of seeing bills before they're signed.

and on his campaign website...

but keep on keeping on making ME the issue because you're purposefully ignorant to what you know is right. Making me the strawman doesn't change the fact Obama/Geitner/Dem Congress could've been MORE OPEN and prevented a lot of this nonsense. Things could've been worded differently to where AIG could've compensated work not finished without attempting to bypass tax laws through bonuses. But no...we HAD to sign this damned bill or the world would collapse.

Go ahead...make ME the issue again you freaking mind-numbed liberal piece-o-crap.

What this ALSO tells me is that we have a lazy media.

The MEDIA should've scoured the bill after it was passed/signed and these specific AIG bonus exemptions found and presented to the American people...then Senators/congressmen should've been grilled over exactly why the wording was there. Did anyone see anything like that?

The media is LAZY.

Hang on, shouldn't Bush or Cheney or any number of people in his administration have scoured over this bill and pointed it out, he did sign it right?

No...you're confusing things. The Dodd exemption was debated only amongst democrats in the closed door meeting between Obama/Reid/Pelosi/dem senators and congresspeople/and 3 RINOS...Spector/Snowe/Collins.

Haha it must be nice to get a break on who you don't want to recognize...face it, if the Republicans had any real interest in making things right they would have had better representation - but then you'd have nothing to cry about.

I call DINOS on all of my guys!

The media and the dems....boy how did we ever get into this mess in the first place when the Republicans were in control? It's a miracle I tell you!

It's like a broken record:

1. Dems

2. Media

3. Fannie Mae/Poor People

4. ACORN

5. Bill Ayers

Pick the highest one you can and yell.

Maybe the Republicans in More Than Name Only could have found out about this? Were they doing their job? You didn't even mention them - or that, let's see, according to your source it was THE MEDIA that found out about and reported this! Here is the original article:

http://www.time.com/time/business/article/0,8599,1886138,00.html

And of course your HOT AIR "source" convieniently forgot to add this part of the article:

Geithner's supporters argue that the AIG bailout was pulled together in less than one business day and that it's understandable that the bonus issue was not central to those negotiations. They also argue that in subsequent negotiations with AIG and others about further infusions of government cash, Geithner has imposed tough conditions limiting bonuses and executive compensation.

Or maybe, just maybe, the thing that I have pointed out repeatedly to you - that the Administration and the Treasure did not want lawsuits to get in the way of implementation - had something to do with all this? That maybe they were smart enough to keep a loophole open for these types of issues while getting the package done? Other people have stated here that in the big picture, this stuff, while distasteful, is a pittance of what is actually happening. To you, it's not about trying to save the economy from the bad management practices and excesses encouraged during the last decade, it's about telling us how bad the people trying to fix it are, so you can somehow appear smart.

Keep feeding us hot air.
