Posted on 08/16/2012 7:29:21 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
In keeping with the left's blaxploitation enterprise, white Northerner Joe Biden feigned the hemistichical rhythm of a Southern black preacher for his largely black audience in Virginia yesterday:
"They've said it. Every Republican's voted for it. Look at what they value and look at their budget and what they're proposing. Romney wants to let the-he said in the first 100 days, he's going to let the big banks once again write their own rules. Unchain Wall Street! They gawn' put y'all back in chains."
For all the bluster of Obama, pre- and post-2008, as well as that of Attorney General Eric Holder concerning the alleged criminal activities on Wall Street, there have been zero Wall Street prosecutions under Obama/Holder. Compare that with his predecessors Bush and Clinton:
GAI [Government Accountability Institute] details how the George W. Bush and Bill Clinton administrations both actually took down financial criminals - unlike the Obama administration. Between 2002 and 2008, for instance, GAI points out how a Bush administration task force "obtained over 1,300 corporate fraud convictions, including those of over 130 corporate vice presidents and over 200 CEOs and corporate presidents."
"Clinton's DOJ prosecuted over 1,800 S&L (savings and loans) executives, senior officials, and directors, and over 1,000 of them were sent to jail," GAI adds. But, despite having "promised more of the same," especially in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, the Obama administration's DOJ has not brought criminal charges against a single major Wall Street executive. The Bush and Clinton administrations' track records on prosecuting white-collar crime, and the Obama administration's failure to do so, Schweizer said, is "evidence that this has less to do with some sort of partisan or philosophical issue."
Bush - 1,300 convictions;
Clinton - 1,000 convictions;
Obama - Zero attempts.

I’d say I’ve learned a new word, but I can’t find a definition for it and I’m not sure I can even pronounce it.
Did anyone get offended by the condescending “street jive” voice that Biden adopted to deliver his “chains”?
I mean, seriously. The theatrics were over-the-top and I guarantee you the message was delivered just how Obama intended for him to.
Watch Barry go for a “jive” change in his voice here. It’s just as condescending and calculated as the Biden statement.

Definition of HEMISTICH
: half a poetic line of verse usually divided by a caesura
I would take it then, that hemistichical, is something that encompasses a half line of verse. Half poetic, half assine.
There’s the problem ... I was looking for “hemistichical”, not “hemistich”.
