So, while Kentucky was hit with deadly ice storms and FEMA was slow to respond, President Obama was enertaining guests with steaks that cost $100 a pound, and where was the mainstream media that loved to hound President Bush over Katrina? Well, come on, we're waiting.
Oh, yeah? Well, the Bank of America, which took $45 billion in federal taxpayer bailout, just spent millions on a lavish Super Bowl bash, which ABC of the mainstream media had to tell us about, and where are the conservative bloggers on that one, huh, huh, huh?
Meanwhile, this just in:
New York's Charles Rangel and five other Democratic members of the House enjoyed a trip to the Caribbean sponsored in part by Citigroup (see above) in November - after Congress had approved the $700 bailout for financial firms (including Citigroup).
The members no doubt will object to the terms "junket," but that shoe fits. The National Legal and Policy Center, a watchdog group, has asked Neil Barofsky, the special inspector general for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) to investigate the Nov. 6-9 excursion to the island of St. Maarten.
Could it possibly be that great big chunks of loose money makes people behave in predictable ways and that while everybody is playing this tiresome game of gotcha . . . oh, never mind.
