Con men

Via Main Street Liberal:

Jon Stewart, therefore, asked on September 20 of Ron Suskind, author of Confidence Men, the key question (video below):

We keep hearing that the Wall Street guys hate Obama, and my sense is ‘why?’ They’ve had it as good as anyone in this country over the past two and a half years, probably better. What’s their beef?

That elicited the answer that sums up this Administration better than has almost anything. Suskind responded:

I asked the same question. I talked to a senior Wall Street guy. I said ‘”What gives with this thing with Obama? You’re after him; he’s anti-business. God, he couldn’t have done more. He basically opened the federal purse for you guys. He saved your skin.” This guy says “You bet, you bet.'” And he says “No, no, you see. Of course, he’s not anti-business. But when we say he’s anti-business, he just ends up doing more for us. So we’re going to keep saying it.”

You, the reader, suspected this. But now we know it.

  1. Holy cow, Batman! Wow, so that’s how he’s viewed by the Wall Street Gang Banksters? And, while I consider the source, Suskind, I have to admit Suskind tries to put the best face on all these things he finds out about Obama and Wall Streeters.

    So, how does Suskind talk about Obama as growing into the job of president and mean it?

  2. I must have a warped sense of humor. To me, that’s funny. I mean, hello?, Wall St. is one big glob of traders. The first rule of bargaining is always act like you’re getting a bad deal. Why would anyone interpret anything they say in any other light?
