Why the Banks Should Fear Mary Jo White
Time ^ | January 25, 2013 | Massimo Calabese

In the binary world of wing-nut commentators, everything is personal. What matters most to ideologues is individuals taking absolute positions in a battle of good versus evil: you’re either with us or you’re against us, and professional association is moral allegiance, regardless of the circumstances.

So it’s not surprising to see the left up in arms over the nomination of former Manhattan U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White by President Barack Obama to head the SEC. White had a long and widely-praised career as a public prosecutor and then went to private practice. There she represented big banks and, among others, Time Warner, the parent company of Time Magazine, in a suit brought by Donald Trump that was eventually dismissed.

To summarize the case against White: because she represented financial titans including Morgan Stanley and Bank of America, she’s morally tainted, sympathetic to the plight of big banks, and inevitably inclined to lean in their favor.

In the real world, where politics, economics and the law are much bigger than any one player, those same big banks should be scared witless this morning at the prospect of having Mary Jo White as a top enforcer.

Gee, I like the mental image that it portrays, in all its various exhilarating iterations.

The banks were sitting pretty having wreaked all the incredible havoc, talking out of both sides of their mouths, avarice, greed, gluttony, you name it, doing such a great job on the American people and for themselves and their stockholders. And that was before getting their bonus TARP money.

That the First Comrade had not made any move by the Federal government to punish the klepto-kapitalists in their exploitation of the markets, workers, only demonstrates his utter hypocrisy by remaining silent while he filled his re-election coffers with protection money that Wall Street was only too happy to hand over. But then suddenly now, Obama's open-mic whisperings about post-election flexibility to Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev seems to include flexibility in other areas as well.

The banks have nothing to worry about. Ms White is part of the international cabal known as the Ivy League Mafia.

I know that name. I can’t remember the previous theft she orchestrated. I know she did, though.

Because the appearance of any supposed female on the planet who looks that much like Moe Howard is a sure harbinger of the Antichrist??

I know that name.

Is she the one who filed those lawsuits to get back the children she gave up for adoption?

I don’t think that’s the same person. The surrogate was Mary Beth Whitehead and not Mary Beth White. The name rings a bell with me too I just can’t figure out if I am confusing the two or was White in the news for something else.

Oh, yeah! - the banks will "fear" her all right. Mary Jo White(wash) might accidentally spill a bucket of Uncle Barack Stalin's Special BigBank Whitewash all over 'em.
