Obama releases names of the white house fund raiser.

Reads like the who is who of the rich and elite. Obama and the weinercrats are truly the party of the rich, by the rich, and for the rich.

 

snip-

The Blue Room event, first reported last week by The New York Times, was not on Obama’s public schedule. Obama aides have noted that the public schedule does not list every meeting Obama has and that he is the first president to pledge to disclose the names of nearly all White House visitors.

Here’s a partial guest list for the meeting (POLITICO added the affiliations and descriptions):

Thomas Bernstein, co-founder of Chelsea Piers, L.P., and chairman of the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington (appointed by Obama in September 2010); and his wife, Andrea Bernstein

Jon Corzine, former Democratic governor of New Jersey and former CEO of Goldman Sachs

James Dinan, founder of York Capital Management

Glenn Dubin, CEO of Highbridge Capital Management

Mark Gallogly, co-founder of Centerbridge Partners and a member of the President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board

Jeffrey Gural, chairman of the real estate firm Newmark Knight Frank

Michael Kempner, CEO at MWW Group and a member of the White House’s Council for Community Solutions

Sarah Kovner, longtime Clinton supporter and prominent New York liberal

Marc Lasry, co-founder and CEO of Avenue Capital Group

Margo Lion, of Margo Lion LTD, co-chairwoman of the Obama’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities

Brian Mathis, co-managing member of Provident Group Ltd. and co-managing partner of Longship Capital Management, LLC

Richard Richman, runs real estate/investment banking/property management conglomerate The Richman Group; and his wife, Ellen Richman, a philanthropist and Pace University marketing professor

William Rudin, chief executive of the real estate company Rudin Management

Rick Schifter, partner at TPG Capital, formerly Texas Pacific Group

It looks like a Dale Walker list of the upper crust "we're better'n you" limousine liberal snooty snob crowd that the DemoKratiç Partei is now.

 

I would rather take the down to Earth, regular folks like you would find in the Tea Party, any day.

snip:

On Thursday at Fort Drum, the president told troops from the 10th Mountain Division that he previously "had the great honor of seeing some of you because a comrade of yours, Jared Monti, was the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasn’t receiving it posthumously.”

Wrong. Sgt. 1st Class Jared Monti was actually killed in Afghanistan on June 21, 2006. In September 2009, President Obama awarded him the Medal of Honor posthumously.

 

Is this man that cold of heart he forgets? Or, is something else going on.

You just proved how clueless you are. I guess you haven't even got the brains I had credited you with. You aren't paying attention, my friend, wake up! Look who is protecting the wealthy, with tax cuts, and loop holes? It ain't the Democrats. The Democrats know how we got into this predicament, the Republicans know, they just can't do anything about it.

Yet even now we don’t seem to have learned the lesson that unregulated greed, especially in the financial sector, is destructive. True, most Democrats are now in favor of stronger financial regulation—although not as strongly as is required by the continuing manipulations by large financial institutions. But today’s Republicans remain firmly attached to greedism. In their view, it’s still government that’s the problem. It has now become orthodoxy on the right—despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary—that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, not Angelo Mozilo and Countrywide Credit, are to blame for the subprime mess. While proclaiming themselves defenders of the little guy, Republicans are currently hard at work undermining the Obama administration’s consumer protections that would largely prevent a replay of rapacious subprime lending.

I'd actually imagine that both books are quite good. Anybody from any perch finally starting to document and name names is a welcome step.

Re: Like a bunch of cats covering up their mess........

If fannie and Freddie were the problem then the losses should have been contained in freddie and fannie and the US treasury their guaranteer.

 

Government didn't make the wall Street financiers into theives that commited fraud on home buyers and innocent investors. Selff regulation would have prevented it if there hadn't been so **bleep** much money to be made. Why would you want to blame government for financial excesses by the banks and the market..
