Charles E. "Ed" Haldeman, Jr., has announced his plans to step down as chief executive officer of mortgage giant Freddie Mac sometime in the next year.

The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), which regulates Freddie and its counterpart Fannie Mae, announced Wednesday that Haldeman is looking to leave the government-sponsored enterprise some time next year.

I wonder how many tens of millions this public servant made before he joins the OWS?

When they say “stepped down”, they mean “fired”. I’d like to have a job where being fired and means that you walk away with money that rivals the record Powerball lottery win.

Considering the staggering billions that went through this “company”, I’d bet the proverbial house and lot that this guy is walking with money that makes Michael Eisner look like a lightweight.

Let me guess, he's moving to an undisclosed South American country?

To spend more time with the family no doubt.

The part I find truly entertaining about this is that Mr. Haldeman is apparently such a sock puppet that he can’t even announce his own career moves (or have his company make an announcement) instead its left up to their regulator.

Bye bye worthless stooge, enter, stage left, another worthless stooge.

Yep. Funny how these people who quit “to spend more time with the family” surface a month later doing the same thing under a different corporate logo. Guess that family time isn’t worth much to them after all, they’d rather throw another $100 million in the bank that won’t affect their lifestyle in the least.

This is why I’ll never be a billionaire. If I was 55 years old and had that kind of money, the last thing I’d be doing is putting on a tie and going to work every day. I’m one of those weirdos that likes to see my family for more than an hour a day. Is it that hard to find a hobby?

Yeah, that’s what I expected. Michael Eisner’s official salary with Disney was a shade less than $1 million/year even though he pulled in over a billion during his tenure there. Funny how that works.

What? He’s made his millions on our backs, so is stepping aside for the next low-life requiring a pay-off?

The guy is a piker, he will need to come up with some creative accounting before the end of his tenure to catch up to Jamie “the wall” Gorelick’s 26 million that she absconded with from Freddie. Not to mention Franklin Raines 50 million. All DemonRats, that needs to be shouted loud and clear.

My first question was, "How much is his walk-away money?", so I clicked on the link. The article doesn't say how much, but ...

Lo and behold, the first comment after the article was this:

Just curious. How many millions of dollars will he walk away with? The last couple became multimillionaires. I'm just curious. I hope he does just as well. There is nothing that bothers me more than my Masters not getting a fair shake.

Yeah, this guy's $3,000,000 seemed astonishingly low, compared to the other crooks before him.

My guess is that they just found a more creative way to shovel the booty to these guys. Watch what he makes over the next five years from friends of the Obama Administration.

He'll get his $50 million one way or another.

That will be tough.

Haldeman came to run the company in June 2009.
