Wow.
I bet Rush’s head will explode on his show today.
Can’t imagine what he will have to say about it all.

More corruption on the way, as if we have not had enough in the past 2 years!

I wonder if his “retiring” Chitown Mayor brother suddenly finds a new washington job in this personnel change. That retirement came as way way too convenient for my liking.

I had a Chase credit card. After TARP, they doubled my interest rates. (Had to pay back TARP somehow!)
I cancelled the card.

Well, remember how Chicago likes to keep the Daley Dynasty going. Every so often they’ll ease off and let a Washington, Byrne, or Bilandic in, but generally the big money and influential elites prefer to keep it all in the family.

This is not the sort of move a "one term president" makes.

Anyone surprised?

The good news in this is that Daley (with his Chicago bullying tactics) will surely muck up the White House and its congressional relations even more than they are now, while Obama let’s his canniest and most competent operator Pete Rouse slide back into the shadows.

Lehman's Bankruptcy Estate Sues J.P. Morgan
WSJ | 5/26/2010 | BY MIKE SPECTOR And SUSANNE CRAIG
FR Posted May 26, 2010 by markomalley Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.'s bankruptcy estate sued

J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., alleging that J.P. Morgan illegally siphoned billions of dollars from Lehman in the days before the investment bank filed the largest bankruptcy in U.S. history.

The lawsuit, filed Wednesday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New York, alleges that J.P. Morgan Chief Executive James Dimon and other top executives used inside knowledge to take advantage of Lehman as its financial state worsened.

J.P. Morgan coerced Lehman to turn over $8.6 billion in collateral in September 2008, triggering a liquidity squeeze that contributed to Lehman's collapse, the suit said. The estate is hoping to recoup billions in collateral the bank demanded, and other damages. (Excerpt) Read more at online.wsj.com ...

“NBC News and Politico are reporting that Bill Daley, brother of Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, former Commerce Secretary under Bill Clinton and long-time executive at Wall Street’s JP Morgan Chase will join the Obama Administration as White House Chief of Staff.”

But don’t forget his ‘finest hour’ as Al Gore’s campaign honcho reinventing Gore’s image over and over until finally bullying in Florida the notion that the several counties critical to Gore, and in which Democrats spared no expense, needed to be recounted on the basis of ‘perceived’ intent.

Anyone ever notice how Obama never appoints anyone from his past? Mack McLarty was Clinton's Chief-of-staff. They knew each other since they were in kindergarten. Carl Rove was appointed head of College Republicans by Bush Sr, so Jr has probably known him since then. But Obama? No one from his past. Does he have a past?

The lefties will be going nuts over this I assume.

Obama’s new bromance with big business

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — President Obama seems to be trying to rebuild his ties with corporate America, with the latest move being his plan to name prominent business leader William Daley as chief of staff.

Daley, a JPMorgan Chase (JPM, Fortune 500) executive and former Commerce Secretary, will be named Thursday to serve as the new White House chief of staff, two senior officials told CNN.

Bill Daley chaired and was active in Gore’s 2000 presidential campaign. He’s the one who brought Chicago shenanigans to the vote in Florida—and very nearly stole the election.
