President Barack Obama pledged this morning in his weekly radio address to continue to crackdown on "irresponsible behavior."

"Here in America, we know the free market is the greatest force for economic progress the world has ever known. But we also know the free market works best for everyone when we have smart, commonsense rules in place to prevent irresponsible behavior," Obama began.

"That’s why we passed tough reforms to protect consumers and our financial system from the kind of abuse that nearly brought our economy to its knees. And that’s why we’ve taken steps to end taxpayer-funded bailouts, and make sure businesses and individuals who do the right thing aren’t undermined by those who don’t.

I’m sure Cordray has a chance in Hell. At least he’d better.

Is this “comic relief” or “semi-news, semi-satire”? If it isn’t, it should be! I started laughing hysterically! :-O

He should call it “hooliganism”, like the Soviets did.

How soon until “irresponsible behavior” morphs into “counterrevolutionary behavior” and merits a mandatory trip to the shrink to recommend the state assume custody?

This time we are going to make sure the economy goes to its knees.

And that’s why we’ve taken steps to end taxpayer-funded bailouts,

Right - what about the billions and billions of tax payer dollars keeping Fannie and Freddie afloat?

Were there any sincerity in this comment he'd resign.

Gee, I wonder that is defined as “irresponsible behavior” as defined by our “Outstanding Leader”. I am sure it starts with being pro Bill of Rights especailly the 2nd amendment, questioning authority, working smart instead of working hard by caring for your financial well being. I am sure that anything that opposes his view is considered irresponsible behavior. Time for more irresponsible behavior......

“when we have smart, commonsense rules in place “

When I think “Government”, I always think smart and commonsense.
