Skip to comments.Maddow: You Take Mr. Barack’s Dime, You Support Mr. Barack’s Policies

Barack Obama bought and paid for these banks. They better get in line behind his plan to abolish the secret ballot in unionization elections. Thats Rachel Maddows position. The MSNBC host is furious that banks taking bail-out funds have the audacity to do what they think is in the best interest of their businesses, instead of supporting the presidents scheme to do away with what most Americans consider a sacred element of democracy: the secret ballot.
Apparently Citi and Bank of America have hosted conference calls in which opposition was expressed to the Obama-backed, Orwellian-named, Employee Free Choice Act, which would permit the abolition of the secret ballot in unionization elections. That infuriated Maddow tonight . . .

Obama bought and paid for the banks. They better support him. Ping to Today show list.
I haven’t been keeping up with pop culture. Who the hell is this Madcow and why is she so popular all of a sudden? She was a nobody last month.
Well, she’s got her own MSNBC show and about a million people watch her every night. For my sins I monitor and report.
NO No no...You have your Bovine mixed up, you meant Bull Dyke?
She is actually losing viewership.
I saw five minutes of her show last night. She is boorish, unintelligent, unattractive, and very full of herself. She is in short a poster-child for the Democratic party.
Silly me, I thought the tax payers bought and paid for the banks.
Then she has no problem with the logic - “You do not take Barack’s (sic) dime, you do not support his policies”.
He who pays the piper picks the tune...unless he who pays happens to be the taxpayer, in which case he pretty much just shuts the f*ck up and takes it in the ass again.
All the dimes, dearie dreary Maddow, belong to US. We the people. We can damn well take them and be not beholden to any. Let no one forget that.
In war, sometimes you have to not only go behind the lines, you have to infiltrate and work for the enemy.
In this war, many of us will have to take those dimes, as many as possible but ignore and dance around the regulations they are given with. Be as honest as you can, but this is war.
excellent point! when do we get a vote on card check? Heck, I don’t even think we got a vote on the stimulus....Well, we got a vote, they just chose to ignore the 75% of us who said no.
In other words, the female (loosely speaking) version of Keith Olbermann, her PMSNBC bookend.
Socialism is just the modern form of feudalism. Bow to your liege lord!
“one of the principal reasons why government money is poisonous: It politicizes whatever it’s spent on, and whoever receives iteffectively converting them into vassals of the state and its current political leadership.”
Since he took OUR dime to buy the banks, I suppose he needs to listen to us.
Just what is the connection between the two issues? Why would the banks have anything to do with the secret ballots for union workers?
That dime isn't Mr Barack's - whomever that is; it's mine
Support my policys you dimwitted twit!
Dear Missy your fired your loser company GE took my money too.
Is that a woman? If so, she looks like Cory from “Boy Meets World.”
So if Obama takes my money he is my bitch?
These fools are destroying America because our citizens are public school "educated" morons. They can't help themselves. We can. We must protect the ignorant from social brainwashing. If not us, then who?
Also, if "news" isn't fair and balanced, its a political contribution and corporate political contributions are illegal under Federal election law (not that anything that helps Democrats is illegal now a days).
Who the hell is this Madcow
One hell of an over educated liberal “cunning runt”!
You are right. They did.
And now that everyone is looting the kitty, we taxpayers have to buy and pay for the banks again, and again, and again.
yep.... the borrower is always slave to the lender...
Since he took OUR dime to buy the banks, I suppose he needs to listen to us.
Wasn’t this one of the reasons alot of the community banks didn’t want any bailout money? They didn’t want to be “controlled” by BO and his thugs.
Does Maddow believe she/the state owns the means of production (classic definition of socialist) or does she just fancy herself a economic fascist?
Now she can get back deciding her costume for next Halloween. The skinny Elvis or the fat Elvis.
dollar will soon be worthless soon anyways!
Hilariously, her ratings are higher than Olbermann’s. (Although neither of them have 1/3 of O’Reilly’s audience) I find Madcow even smarmier than Olbermann, although he definitely wins the arrogance event.
She may call herself a lesbian, but she is figuratively sucking Obamas d*** on every show. Probably would love to give it a try in reality.
She rns her show and lives a place called Never Never Land, the place where teenage boys and female wannabees who never want to grow up live, write, and God knows what else. The latest cultural outpost of the Peter Pan Syndrome.
This odious Rachel creature spews nothing but trash as she vilifies, night after night, George W Bush, his administration, policies, WOT, and on on on. She is living in a NeverLand where the most important topic is Bush.
Literally talking out of the side of her sideways slanted mouth, she aims to appear brilliant and wonkish, She uses the same annoying inflextion, expressions and tones in every statement.
While this might be cute on a teenage boy, or just plain obnoxious, she continues on.
There is an equally, if not more sycophantic profile by someone called Rebecca Traister, a trash columnist for Salon.com.
Do you mean she’s a cunning linguist?
I wonder why she didn’t say you are forced to take Mr. Barack’s dime? As usual another pig in the pen does an oink oink.
‘What a CITI thing to do’...
-> “Just what is the connection between the two issues? Why would the banks have anything to do with the secret ballots for union workers?” -<
For one, most Banks are Non Union.
Actually, it’s the TAXPAYER’S dime, but that’s a minor detail to Maddow and her ilk.
After all, fascism is just one of socialism's many variants (not that they're completely identical.) If you define as socialist any ideology that advocates "socializing the means of production," then fascism is a socialist ideology.
The best description of the US government since the New Deal is fascist, in that the central theme has been authoritarian control of the economy by the Federal government, enabled by a totally dishonest "interpretation" of the Commerce Clause.
The New Deal also certainly imposed a significant amount of socialist/collectivist income redistribution, which was expanded in the following decades—especially by the "Great Society."
Nevertheless, some elements of free-market capitalism were also preserved—but only just enough to fool the gullible. Any substantive claim to free-market capitalism became questionable once an income tax was imposed, and the currency came under the control of a central bank. But the New Deal converted "free-market capitalism" into a museam exhibit that was still allowed some real use, under the watchful control of Federal and State bureacrats.
This is what happens when you lay down with dogs.
Looks like Mrs. Michael Moore.
If she's sporting a large gut she would be the perfect compliment to Olbermann.
no tuna for you tonight if you don’t take the Messiah’s cash
The banks should do the honorable thing. Return every cent and shut their doors. I won’t hold my breath.
Stress on the unintelligent. She asked a ceo of some major utility to take a loss to make up for decades of pollution. Anyone that stupid shouldn't be allowed to cross the street by themselves.
Those aren’t his dimes, Maddow.
You’re wrong again dude.
