President Barack Obama said he doesn’t “begrudge” the $17 million bonus awarded to JPMorgan Chase & Co. Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon or the $9 million issued to Goldman Sachs Group Inc. CEO Lloyd Blankfein, noting that some athletes take home more pay.Oh, right. Because Americans don't think it's bullshit that athletes make so much money. Also, remember when athletes almost destroyed our economy and we had to give them trillions of dollars to keep playing, so our country wouldn't fall into a depression? I don't either. Other than that, bang up job with the comparison.
The president, speaking in an interview, said in response to a question that while $17 million is “an extraordinary amount of money” for Main Street, “there are some baseball players who are making more than that and don’t get to the World Series either, so I’m shocked by that as well.”I bet that's because it's the dumbest analogy in the history of our country, you fucking idiot.
“I know both those guys; they are very savvy businessmen,” Obama said in the interview yesterday in the Oval Office with Bloomberg BusinessWeekHead. Desk. Head. Desk. Head. Desk. Head. Desk.
“I, like most of the American people, don’t begrudge people success or wealth. That is part of the free- market system.”Yes...the free market system...right...um...hey, you dumb fucking asshole, what part of the "free market system" includes bailouts of trillions of dollars?
Obama sought to combat perceptions that his administration is anti-business and trumpeted the influence corporate leaders have had on his economic policies.Well, you did it. I'm sure the voters will be excited to reward you.
