New Chief of Staff: Former Hedge Fund Exec. at Citigroup, Made Money Off Mortgage Defaults

ONE MORE 1%...Obama and WALL STREET...HYPOCRITE

President Obama's first chief of staff Rahm Emanuel once sat on the board of troubled federal mortgage giant Freddie Mac. Bill Daley, the president's chief of staff whose departure was announced today, was previously a top executive at financial firm J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. So of course there should be little surprise that Obama's latest chief of staff, announced today by the president himself, also has deep ties to the financial industry himself.

From 2006-2008, Jack Lew was chief operating officer of Citibank's alternative investments division. And it was his division that made billions of dollars betting "U.S. homeowners would not be able to make their mortgage payments," ...he Bet against Americans1..a Dam VULTURE..OBAMAS MAN!!

For the street urchins,Paranoids,park bench dwellers,assorted nitwit anarchists, and other brain damaged freaks..the rest of the Fluff1......

The piece also reported:“Lew made millions at Citi, including a bonus of nearly $950,000 in 2009 just a few months after the bank received billions of dollars in a taxpayer rescue, according to disclosure forms filed with the federal government. The bank is still partly owned by taxpayers.”

Of course, one should not begrudge Lew his personal, professional, and financial successes. But one might wonder what kind of message the president is sending with this appointment.

“I welcome constructive input from folks in the financial sector. But what we’ve seen so far, in recent weeks, is an army of industry lobbyists from Wall Street descending on Capitol Hill to try and block basic and common-sense rules of the road that would protect our economy and the American people,” Obama said in 2010.“So if these folks want a fight, that’s a fight I’m ready to to bave

In announcing Lew today, the president mentioned his previous work at the State Department and in the Clinton administration. Obama did not mention Lew's past of making billions of dollars for Citibank just a few years ago.

WASHINGTON-- When Michelle Obama worked in Mayor Daley's City Hall in the early 1990s, she was "distressed" by how a small group of "white Irish Catholic" families -- the Daleys, the Hynes and the Madigans -- "locked up" power in Illinos..the First Fat Ass is a RACIST!!,,CATHOLIC BASHER!!

Bill Daley resignation: Greens say 'good riddance'

Now some should try Try Sticking this FLUFF between vacant ears...

"A paranoid personality, often expressed by individuals with a paranoid personality disorder, is characterized by excessive and irrational mistrust and suspicion of other people or entities. Such individuals tend to feel that others are constantly plotting against them or that, at the very least, they have motives that are not beneficial to the afflicted individual. Accordingly, paranoid people tend to find it very difficult to form close personal relationships because they are always suspicious and mistrustful of those around them. They also tend to find it very difficult to seek help, as they are generally hesitant to admit that their paranoid suspicions are merely delusions."

"The mistrust and suspicion of an individual with a paranoid personality may manifest itself in any of a number of diverse forms. In addition to general suspicion of the motives of others, paranoid individuals are highly reluctant to confide in other people because they believe that any personal information they confide in others could be used against them. If a paranoid person is in a romantic relationship, he will often suspect his partner of infidelity or will doubt his partner's affection and commitment. Also symptomatic of a paranoid personality is reading far too deeply into innocent and meaningless gestures and phrases." ..sounds like somebody i know!!

he's made far more than that working for the government, as none of them are held to the same insider trading laws as the rest of us.
.
having only held appointed positions, it makes a person wonder why he's never run for office.
he must not vet well enough for a public campaign.
.
but then none of them seem to.

And Bush had Henry Paulson, former CEO of Golman Sachs, among many, many other bank guys giving them advice.

Don't for one second try to make the GOP sound as if they are blameless - for 20 of the last 30+ years, we've had a republican president - and all have bought the debt from Carter's 990 billion to almost 11 trillion before Obama even got there!

Attention 1961 Tons of Poop!!! You forgot to factor in which party controlled congess under which president, etc. That has a lot to do with the workings of government, it does not revolve all around a president. At least that's how it was before dumbbells like you gave America the lord marshal b. h. obama.

Occupy 'founder' collects millions from Wall St. through Democratic party
http://www.bostonherald.com/blogs/news/lone_r...

I thought Elizabeth Warren was all about transparency. We are all still waiting for her to file the required financial disclosure form.

The Oklahoma Professor has been criticizing Scott Brown for being “Wall Street’s favorite Senator.” She has also denounced “Wall Street cash in politics.”

But it turns out she may be indirectly accepting Wall Street money. The Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee, which is helping the Harvard Professor, has taken over $40 MILLION from Wall Street during the last 7 years according to records from OpenSecrets.org . In fact, Wall Street is the biggest contributors to them. They beat lawyers and labor unions. Just during this election season the DSCC has already received $1.5 MILLION from Wall Street.

If Lizzy Warden is truly opposed to Wall Street money, then shouldn’t she reject the DSCC’s money? Otherwise she is just using the DSCC to funnel in Wall Street money.

He did not fit in the LOONY RACIST OBAMA WHITE HOUSE..Along with Rahm,Gibbs, Who were bounced,he Daily was to CATHOLIC for the first fat ASS,and Jarrett....She said Catholics control of Chicago....

For most Americans Valerie Jarrett, senior adviser to President Barack Obama, remains largely an unknown. To DC Insiders, she has positioned herself as the true power in the Oval Office – a woman who, like the President, has direct links to the Muslim world, both past – and present.She Was Born In IRAN!..so she is OK with OBAMA!

Jarrett also worked with long-time Obama friend and convicted felon Tony Rezko in raising money for Obama's political career.

This AMERICAN "MARIE ANTOINETTE".. Will lose her head soon....Her LET THEM EAT CAKE,in response to her LAVISH,OBSCENE Life Style while America is hurting.is DISGRACEFUL!!

Lew would have to practically be vapor to be any less low-key than Daley. We all heard Daley's name on the day of his appointment, and he wasn't heard from again until he announced his "departure" (Øbama-speak for firing).
