[Maxine] Waters: Banks 'shaking in their boots' at thought of me as chairwoman
The Hill ^ | 02/15/12 | Peter Schroeder

Posted on 02/16/2012 8:05:46 AM PST by frank46

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said banks on Wall Street are "shaking in their boots" at the prospect of her becoming chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee.

Waters is next in line to take over as top Democrat on the panel following the retirement of Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) at the end of 2012. She told California Democrats gathered for a convention last weekend that she was eager to take over at the top, urging them to help Democrats reclaim control of the House in the upcoming election.

I think they are worried about how many of her relatives they will have to hire ( not to mention pay offs)

“said banks on Wall Street are “shaking in their boots” at the prospect of her becoming chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee.”

The shakedown would be astronomical.

Rep Waters:

The banking industry is ‘shaking in their boots’ at the thought of you as chairwoman because you are an incompetent idiot who knows nothing about banking.

Maxine, you are a blithering, drooling, totally corrupt, drooling, idiotic, moronic socialist.

The entire country should be shaking in its boots at the fact that you have been allowed anywhere near government.

I generally have high regard for Texas and Texans.

However, this Maxine Waters thing. Texans have some 'splain'n to do!

Or is she some sort of local joke. Sort of a political "ugly dog" contest entry.

The banks own Obama and Obama owns Maxine, ergo, the banks own Maxine, too. The only thing she’s going to be saying is “How much do you need, Mr. Dimon?”

I can see it now: race-based banking, race-based loans, and race-based hiring/firing. Melanin screening tests for loan applications. And applications written in Ebonics.

Waters is California’s village socialist idiot.

In Texas, Sheila Jackson Lee, aisle hog, is unfortunately ours.

Oops, Sorry. Was thinking Sheila Jackson Lee.

Guess I shouldn't complain. Florida has yet to explain Corrine Browne.

The bad news for the banks would be her huge demands for personal tribute. She would honestly expect to personally pocket hundreds of millions of dollars in that role.

The good news for banks would be that they could competely goof on her and pay her off with bad stocks, expired options, engine-less Cadillacs, costume jewelry, condemned real estate, shiny things and "expensive" meals at fancy two star restaurants.

Oh, she'd try.

IIRC, she tried to put Alcee Hastings in charge of the Intelligence Committee.

Hastings used to be a Federal judge. Congress impeached him for bribery.

Unbelievably, saner heads prevailed, in Congress, of all places.

Hastings' constituents, not so much.

“This just in...”

Maxine Kerosene just called all Republicans “demons” and wants them expelled from the “house”, whatever that is.

Geez..... the RNC should offer her a gagwriter internship.

What is wrong with people? Why does no one stand up to hate-filled people like Waters? The GOP and conservatives seem to have no backbone. Suppose she gets her position (maybe not this election cycle, but what about the next one): At some point, business leaders and people with just plain common sense will have to say “No!” to this woman.
