Look Who Called Out Obama

from the blog Don Surber
March 20, 2009

Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters said President Obama has some ’splainin’ to do over the AIG bonuses.

This is so wrong that it is humorous. Mrs. Waters went out of her way to help get a bailout for the black-owned bank in Boston that once had her husband as a member of its board of directors.

And she is calling out the president?

Glenn Thrush of Politico quoted her from that morning show on MSNBC that no one watches:

“Well, you know, they’ve got some explaining to do and I think the president is going to have to clarify to the American public what took place between Treasury and Mr. Dodd. Obviously there was, appears to have been, some kind of agreement that they would protect the AIG from having to give those bonuses. I don’t know who said what and when. Chris Dodd said he wrote the language but that he was pressured practically by Treasury. Maybe the president is not up to speed on what is going on. But I think it is going to have to be clarified.”

I love it. She should know the answer. It is the Chicago way: Don’t ask, don’t tell.
