He condemned bonuses for managers of companies who lost hundreds of billions.

JPM never lost money in any quarter, and GS only had one unpleasant write-off. They have been mainly profitable and well-managed.

As long as they have paid back all the money they owe the US taxpayers, then I have no problems with the huge bonuses. Have they done that?

Well, we can certainly see why Obama doesn’t get performance based bonuses can’t we.

No wonder he hates them.

Once again, Jr. is out of his element.

Whatever spurs economic activity and a better bottom line is okay with me. Is this idiot aware that he is saying increased activity that warranted those bonuses is bad, when these businesses owe the government money? What a hut job.

Does he want those businesses to be able to pay the government back or not?

As if we didn’t know... (definitely not)

You might remember this one...

After Barack Obama became an Illinois state legislator, his wife moved up as well, scoring a job as ‘vice president of community relations’ at the University Of Chicago Hospital for a very generous salary of $121,910. When Obama became a senator in 2005, her ‘salary’ leapfrogged to $$316,962 for the same job...and one of Senator Obama’s first acts in office was to see to it that the hospital received over a million dollars of your tax dollars as an earmark.

Well, Michelle has moved on,and guess what...that vital job of hers,worth a salary of over $300 K has been quietly eliminated.

It’s the Chicago Way, cushy no-show jobs in exchange for political patronage...fist bump.

Of course, she had to work twice as hard to get half as far. She said so, so it must be true.

But I wonder, is this so very different that what Rod Blagojevich was popped for? Except that Blagojevich got caught and embarrassed everybody?

This must be a damn joke.

Socialism is a violation of “Our Fundamental Values”, but that doesn’t seem to be a problem for this crew.

The current squatter in public housing at 1600 Penn’a Ave in Wash DC wouldn’t recognize “Our Fundamental Values” if one fell on him.

He flies on Air Force one all over the place and Nancy Pelosi is the first House Speaker to fly on expensive private Air Force jets all over the world, yet, these clowns call everyone else’s money an “outrage”.
