Jamie Dimon: I am (now only) 'barely' a Democrat.. (slams 'anti-Business')

Posted on 05/13/2012 6:25:03 AM PDT by Milagros

On NBC's Meet The Press,' just now (May 13, 2012:

Jamie Dimon said it's not fair to blame 'all banks,' you know of a particular bank that does something wrong go after that specifically. I accept all criticism.

I am now "barely a democrat."

Asked: 'What do you mean "barely a Democrat," Are you not a Democrat anymore?

I mean I am still a Democrat... but BARELY... The current admin. - (environment) very 'anti-Business.'

I don't blame the president but the Democrats were much more destructive than the Republicans.

WHO is Jamie Dimon and WHY should I give a hoot that he/she finally recognizes that the Dems are a ****ing plague to this nation (while still claiming it’s not Obama’s fault)?

I believe he said he doesn't blame the Prez. only because of ‘Meet The Press’ pressing question - replying in a PC frame.

So, he doesn’t blame the president. That means he is barely a democrat who is still solidly in Obama’s jock strap despite his policies being even more damaging and anti-business tha n the democrats he rails against. Using that kind of convoluted “logic” means being barely a democrat is like being barely pregnant...

This is the president of the bank (JPMorganChase) that handled the $1.6B of transactions for Jon Corzines's MFGlobal company. That $1.6B has never been found.

Now, all of a sudden the bank who handled the transaction loses $2B in poor derivative bets in Europe. Yeah, just barely Democrat enough to participate in a criminal enterprise, with Goldman Sachs (Corzine was CEO there before becoming Senator and Governor of New Jersey). this one stinks to high heaven.

“I don't blame the president”

Therefore he is a Liar, or the Chancey Gardner of the Banking world to have gotten into his position.

You don’t get invited to all of those fancy Manhattan, DC parties if you are a Republican.

Dimon is one of those who realizes that Obama isn’t who he thought he was voting for.

JP Morgan is the operating arm of the Federal Reserve. It is becoming patriotic to short them imo. I hope they collapse and go down the tube.

They are the biggest fraudsters in banking

“WHO is Jamie Dimon and WHY should I give a hoot that he/she finally recognizes that the Dems are a ****ing plague to this nation (while still claiming it’s not Obama’s fault)?”

Jamie Dimon is the CEO of the largest bank in the USA, and CEO who got JP Morgan completely out of subprime lending in 2006, CEO of the only US bank that is ranked among the worlds 50 safest banks.

JP morgan’s stock price is about 30 percent off its all time high. Citigroup’s stock prices is about 90 percent off its all time high.

I also suspect that Dimon is a DINO. He supports democrats only because it is good business to do so in that you can keep the monkey of an army of govt. regulators off you back and Chase/JP Morgan’s back.

In fact, to serve his shareholders, it is probably Dimon’s duty as CEO to say “barely democrat”.

Is being “barely a Democrat” like being “barely gay” or “barely pregnant”?

The very symbol of OWS hatred steps just as Obama's poll numbers are fading on the Left and calls the Democrats destructive to him? Obama couldn't ask for a better campaign commercial - "Look how tough we are on the banksters!" when in fact he has been playing Stepin Fetchit for that whole Wall Street crowd since Day One.

Republicans: Men like Jaime Dimon are not your friends.

Jamie Dimon is telling Bam and the Demos that all the campaign donations from Wall Street are at risk if he does not play ball and finance their gambling establishment. JPM got caught in a bad deal last week, they need Bennie etal to bail them out. QE3 is ready to roll.

Will Bam play along? I say yes.

Jamie Dimon is the CEO of JP Morgan. JP Morgan did not have to take any of the bailout money in 2008/9. He is looked on as the premier CEO of financials. I heard a coined description last Fri. that he was their quarterback for the repeal or reform of Dodd Frank bill. He is or was important spokesperson for capitalism and capital markets

Jamie is just upset that he isn’t the biggest crony of all of Obama’s cronies and no no occupies a preferred position at the crony capitalism feeding trough.

Let me see if I have this straight: Mr. Dimon states that this administration is anti-business. The president calls the shots in this administration. But he doesn't blame obama for the anti-business bent that currently exists.

With that kink of mentality it maybe time to short JPM and ride it down to single digits.
