Another Brick In 'The Wall'?
IBD Editrials ^ | November 11, 2008

Posted on 11/11/2008 9:55:07 PM PST by Kaslin

Transition: Jamie Gorelick may be back, this time as attorney general. It was her "wall of separation" that that left us blind pre-9/11. And let's not forget her admirable service at Fannie Mae.


Not many people can claim to have been at the center of arguably the greatest financial disaster and greatest national security disaster in American history. But Gorelick, said to be on the short list for attorney general by the New York Times, can. Surely that qualifies her for further government service.

Gorelick earned an estimated $26 million serving as vice chair of Fannie Mae from 1998 to 2003. In 1998, according to the Washington Post , Gorelick received a bonus of $779,625, despite a scandal in which employees falsified signatures on accounting transactions to manipulate books to meet 1998 earning targets.

In 2003, she got a "Friends of Angelo" sweetheart mortgage deal from Countrywide Financial for almost $1 million. Her $960,000 mortgage refinancing in 2003 was handled through a program reserved for influential figures and friends of Countrywide's chief executive at the time, Angelo Mozilo.

Countrywide's loans on preferential terms to influential figures are the subject of a federal grand jury investigation in Los Angeles, according to people involved in the inquiry. So Gorelick is in fact under investigation by the department she might soon be running.

For her nightmarish role in causing 9-11, for her cooking the Fannie Books, for stealing $26 million from Fannie Mae, for taking blatant bribes from sub-prime crooks, for being at the center of arguably the greatest financial disaster and greatest national security disaster in American history....

THIS IS OBAMA'S CHOICE FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL??????

HOLY S**T!

She looks like Edith Bunker, but she’s more of a dingbat.

A picture is worth a thousand words and an animated gif is worth a thousand pictures. Who is that waste product, and how can he say so much about what is wrong with our country in so few words?

It’s hard to imagine doing all that and coming back for more. I hope someone puts her in for the Order of Lenin. Clearly above and beyond the call of duty -for some other nation.

This incompetent pig got millions of dollars in bonuses, besides a salary, from Fannie Mae, as a Board member.

She also covered up for the Clintons and their leftists who allowed 9/11 to happen. Richard Ben Veniste was added to the 9/11 Commission to help her. He was the hatchman, she was the mastermind of the coverup.

She is worse than a traitor. She is a pure, unmitigated fool.

I’m sure she’ll be welcome at Goldman Sachs if this doesn’t work out.

Obama and his appointees all seem to have a lot of ties with Fannie Mae. There is a story there, I smell it.

“A picture is worth a thousand words and an animated gif is worth a thousand pictures. Who is that waste product, and how can he say so much about what is wrong with our country in so few words”

I believe that is a member of Pink Floyd. That “waste product” is worth more than any POS associated with Obama or Clinton. Worth being, useful to society.

From article: So Gorelick is in fact under investigation by the department she might soon be running.

Oh heck, with the money she's made off of scamming the taxpayers, she could pay for the entire west wing's salaries for years.

Kinda makes you wonder what all the hub-bub was about a couple of President Bush’s AG’s...

And this one hasn’t been officially appointed or confirmed...

Not that that will matter...

We are so screwed...

Jamie's Brick In The Wall (midi 3:38)

Mohamed Atta flew across the ocean
Leaving just a memory
A snapshot of Towers in our album
Jamie what else did you leave for me
(Jamie, what did'ya leave behind for me)
All in all it was Jamie's brick in the wall
All in all it was Jamie's brick in the wall

We don't need re-education
We don't need no gun control
No GITMO prisnors in our courtroom
Jamie leave the USA alone
(Hey Jamie leave the USA alone)
All in all it was Jamie's brick in the wall
All in all it was Jamie's brick in the wall

“Obama and his appointees all seem to have a lot of ties with Fannie Mae. There is a story there, I smell it.”

This has bothered me for months. The idea that the whole meltdown was an operation keeps popping into my head at various times.

It probably is just coincidence, but it sure looks odd.

It’s a picture of a very young and very wasted David Gilmour.

Well he looks pretty useless in that gif.

I think half this country took the words “we don’t need no education” too seriously.

0bama can't use the excuse that he was only eight years old when this stuff came dwon.

His judgement of people is a scandal, and will get Americans killed.

Gorelick won’t re-institute “the wall”.

She did it first time round at clinton’s insistence in order to frustrate any investigation of his Chinese campaign funding and funding from Riady

0bama is already free and clear on that point, thanks for a compliant media, so there is no need for it this time.
