Oh Yeah

This would have kicked so much more ass if Harry had only thought to say “sweet, sweet love.” Oh well!

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) accused Republicans Wednesday of “making love to Wall Street.”

Reid charged that Republicans are stalling action on a Wall Street reform bill because “they are having difficulty determining how they’re going to continue making love to Wall Street” by resisting banking regulation.

The sweeping Wall Street reform bill had stalled on the Senate floor because of a partisan disagreement over how to handle amendments, though shortly after Reid’s comments, Senate Banking Committee Chairman Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) announced a breakthrough in negotiations.

The deal Dodd struck with Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), the ranking member on his panel, is focused on how to deal with “too big to fail” institutions. It’s not clear whether the deal to provide for the orderly liquidation of troubled banks would be enough to solve the partisan dispute over other amendments.

“They won’t let us deal with any amendments,” Reid complained before Dodd’s announcement. He noted that Republicans had objected to amendments offered by Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) that Democrats would accept without opposition.

  1. Personally, I’m a little sick and tired of the whole bullshit idea of reforming the Street. I say FUCK WALL STREET altogether. Let em all continue to watch the middle class disintegrate while joining the rest of the poor folks in this country and see how much money they’ll make then. Hell, nobody will be around to buy their stinkin stocks or purchase their high-end products. But wait, I forgot, they don’t give a shit anyway, do they.

  2. Reid realizes that he’s not going to be around anymore, so he feels that he ‘can take some ballsy chances’.
    What he doesn’t realize, I believe, that if he’d been this ‘ballsy’ all along he WOULD be around again.
    Funny how they work and think.

  3. You know, after learning more and more about this NYC bomb guy, Faisal Shahzad, it seems to me that yes, he was Muslim, but that didn’t drive him to do what he did. He tried everything in the Western world – getting degrees, getting decent jobs etc. Just like all of us.
    Then the capitalistic society screwed him over, like it did to many millions of us. He lost everything, he flipped out, thinking he’s DONE everything right, worked hard, then still lost.
    A Muslim Tea-Bagger, sorry, a Muslim Tea-Partier???
    How would THAT angle go over, you think?

  4. Dims are as much whores to WALLSTREETGANGSTA’s as are the PUKIES, and O-bought-ma was bought with their $$$$$$ Poor ol’ Reid, a suck up to the end.
