Vice President Joe Biden suggested a new image to associate with Republicans who opposed Democratic efforts to toughen regulations on Wall Street, characterizing them as ” squealing pigs.”
I’m afraid of what will be lost is the complete lie that Crazy Uncle Joe would like the electorate to believe -
“…over the objections of Romney and all his allies, we passed some of the toughest Wall Street regulations in history, turning Wall Street back into the allocator of capital it always has been and no longer a casino. And they want to repeal it”
Here’s the facts, Joe. I know, why let them get in the way of a good sound bite…
From a few day ago by The American Thinker:
“…the Obama administration's DOJ has not brought criminal charges against a single major Wall Street executive.” (Emphasis mine.)
For a little comparison from that evil George Bush and his “failed policy of the last administration” -
Between 2002 and 2008, for instance, GAI [Government Accountability Institute] points out how a Bush administration task force "obtained over 1,300 corporate fraud convictions, including those of over 130 corporate vice presidents and over 200 CEOs and corporate presidents."
Yes, just a bunch of “squealing pigs.”
Just like Obamacare not being a tax; how the Stimulus would create jobs; the Bush tax cuts being are “unfair” to the rich; being “laser focused on the economy”…should I go on, or would that be too much “squealing” Joe?
