Typical democrat,say one thing and do something else. Don't the dems always say that they are here to help the poor and the middle class? Seems like they are only helping themselves fill their bank accounts. The 10 richest people in Washington are demorats,what a surpise.

I sure wouldn't bet on it. Isn't Obama always telling us that we all must share the wealth? He takes every tax loop hole he can find,do as I say,not what I do ring a bell? Along with the rest of his party,Kerry,Dodd,Franks,Polosi e(SP?),Getiner,Binden,ect,just to name a few,all take every loop hole they can find.Yup,they sure are looking out for the people. Kerry even screwed his own state out of sales tax on his $750,000 sailboat.Pretty sad when you screw the state that elected you. They all are two faced liars only looking out for themselfs. The repubicans aren't any better.

Biden reveals corrupt Corzine key to Obama fiscal policy ...

President Barack Obama urged New Jersey to keep Democrat Jon Corzine as governor, calling him an honorable man who puts the people's interests first.

"That's the kind of governor that Jon Corzine has been. That's the kind of governor that Jon Corzine will continue to be. That's why New Jersey needs to give Jon Corzine another four years," Obama told a cheering crowd of more than 3,000 in a gymnasium at Fairleigh Dickinson University.

‘One of the best partners I have’
Obama asked that Corzine, "one of the best partners I have in the White House," not be punished by being booted from office for telling the truth about the challenges ahead.

They all look either STUPID,or CORRUPT....As usual,FOLLOW THE MONE

It was stolen. Everybody knows that. And the people behind it have left a very hard trail to follow.

Washington, DC is in a free for all. Billions in bail outs? For what? And these people turn around and give out millions in bonuses still? They think they have the public by the balls? They are going to get themselves killed at the hands of angry Americans. There will be no warnings. People will just step out of no where and take the law into their own hands. The American people are fed up with corruption and crooks in government. Simply fed up with it all. And Obama has caused it.

When they catch them, they need to just put a bullet in them and be done with it.

Millions are being push towards going postal on politicians. I see the hate and anger everywhere building up. America has become a poweder keg.

How could the NJ Dem Party have even put a snake like Corzine up for Gov of NJ? Will he get a private cell because of his Union connections to Obama or will have be bunked with that Madoff character?

What was it that Joe Biden said? "When the president and I have questions about business and jobs, we call Jon."
Corzine can't account for $1.2 billion of investers money. Corzine was on odummy's short list for the Treasury job. Sounds like Corzine and odummy would be a good fit.
