Mayor Bloomberg blasts Obama over new bank tax scheme

NYC’s Mayor Bloomberg reacting to Obama’s “Financial Crisis Responsiblity Tax Fee” against banks:

If you want to see what happens to a city when their major industry fails, just take a look at Detroit,” said Bloomberg last week publicly about the bank proposal.

And we’ve all see what happened to Detroit…

Does anyone still believe this guy? Seriously.

“Here’s my assessment of not just the vote in Massachusetts, but the mood around the country: the same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office,” the president said in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos. “People are angry and they are frustrated. Not just because of what’s happened in the last year or two years, but what’s happened over the last eight years.”

Yep people are angry. But you still don’t understand why. You want to blame it on “what’s happened over the last eight years” or in other words, George Bush. And that’s a big reason people are pissed off. You don’t own anything that’s gone wrong. It’s ALWAYS Bush’s fault.

“If there’s one thing that I regret this year is that we were so busy just getting stuff done and dealing with the immediate crises that were in front of us that I think we lost some of that sense of speaking directly to the American people about what th eir core values are and why we have to make sure those institutions are matching up with those values,” Obama told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos in an exclusive interview at the White House.

Crises? What crises? Health care wasn’t a crisis until YOU told us it was. No one would disagree that there is room for improvements but no one signed on for becoming Great Britain.

The president said he made a mistake in assuming that if he focused on policy decisions, the American people would understand the reasoning behind them.

Oh but Mr.President, we aren’t capable of understanding your majestic intellect. What a conceited, arrogant, self-absorbed person you are!

“That I do think is a mistake of mine,” Obama said. “I think the assumption was if I just focus on policy, if I just focus on this provision or that law or if we’re making a good rational decision here, then people will get it.”

What you really thought was that you could baffle us with bullshit and we’d just go right along and off the cliff for you.

You’re a chameleon. You’re going to Ohio today on your JOBS road show and you think people are going to believe you are sincere? Do you seriously believe that we will buy this change in course? All of a sudden you CARE about our unemployed?

You really do believe one thing, you believe that Americans are stupid and easily led. I can understand that, since you got elected, after all.
