Liberals Skewer Obama Administration

Liberals are starting to wake up to the fact that the Obama administration is betraying the principals of justice and economic fairness.

Here’s the front page of the Huffington Post tonight (each phrase at the website is linked to a separate article exposing Holder’s corruption and incompetence):

Jon Stewart lambasted the Obama administration for failing to walk its talk … and having awful priorities:

And Bill Clinton’s Secretary of Labor – Robert Reich – writes:

According to the New York Times, a bill that’s already moved through the House Financial Services Committee, allowing more of the very kind of derivatives trading (bets on bets) that got the Street into trouble, was drafted by Citigroup – whose recommended language was copied nearly word for word in 70 lines of the 85-line bill.

Where were House Democrats? Right behind it. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, Democrat of New York, a major recipient of the Street’s political largesse, co-sponsored it. Most of the Democrats on the Committee, also receiving generous donations from the big banks, voted for it. Rep. Jim Himes, another proponent of the bill and a former banker at Goldman Sachs, now leads the Democrat’s fund-raising effort in the House.

***

It’s not entirely coincidental that the Obama Administration never put tough conditions on banks receiving bailout money, never prosecuted a single top Wall Street executive for the excesses that led to the near meltdown, and still refuses to support a tiny tax on financial transactions that would bring in tens of billions of dollars as well as discourage program trading.

Democrats can’t be trusted to control Wall Street. If there were ever an issue ripe for a third party, the Street would be it.

    Holder is an affirmative action AG. What could have anyone expected?

    He has been ill-informed, uninspiring, disconnected and reckless. It would be too kind to portray his tenure as delusional. The whole DOJ has been incompetent.

    The country is being buffeted by a lack of cogent leadership -everywhere-. Holder has fit right into the systemic debauching of America. It’s not only Holder that needs to go.

      >> Holder is an affirmative action AG.

      Oh, come on. Even if that had anything to do with it, what had more to do with it is Holder’s past dirty work:

      Arguably, Holder and the DOJ are *not* incompetent. They just work for different paymasters than you and me.

        Yeah, I’m not sure which is worse…. an incompetent administration that doesn’t know what’s going on or an administration that is *choosing* to do all of this! Sadly, I’m afraid that it’s the latter. :(

          Yep the latter is the correct answer, eric the holder is doing a great job it just has nothing to do with justice in Amerika for Main Street.

      disqus has been hickuping lately. I thought the same thing the other day, but a couple hours later, the comments were there.

  • jayrowland

    Holder is doing what he is told to do and now he will take the fall for it.

    I guess we are not supporting the war in Syria so the BS media is turning up the heat.

  • jon knight

    huffpo must have changed their front page. looked all over that site and could find no article that resembles the one you described.

    i agree about holder, but seriously, would it hurt to link out to someone else for a change? the link that looks like it is placed to lead a reader to the huffpo article you are describing in the 1st paragraph leads to a google search for articles posted on THIS site.

    I love the line “Democrats can’t be trusted to control Wall Street.” Like Republicans would do any different! It seems to me that under bush we has approval of torture from the DOJ. When are people gonna wake up to the fact that there is only ONE party in DC – the criminal party? This ‘blame the other side’ game is gotten so old it’s nothing but dry bones now..

    When the extreme right and left are beginning to wonder who is behind the curtain, it becomes clear that this farce, known as dumbocracy, is getting long in the tooth. As for a third party, I expect that they’ll give up the illusion of democracy long before they’ll part with control. After all, they have everything to lose.
