This is What Happens When You Elect a Businessman/Outsider

Congressman Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) is as unlikely a politician as anyone you’ll ever meet.  But he’s exactly what we need in Washington – a businessman.  Do you think someone like John Kerry has ever had to make payroll or balance a general ledger?  Of course not!  The democrats think we can just keep printing money, overburdening business owners and continuing to expand an already bloated government.

Now, just imagine if we had a President who was a businessman.  Mitt Romney, for instance.

Why Are We Being Held Accountable For The Misdeeds of Others?

bud-seligBud Selig is responsible for the steroid era in baseball.  It happened on his watch and he was most definitely aware of his players using performance enhancing drugs.  He should be held accountable.  Period.

Barney Frank and Chris Dodd are responsible for the sub-prime mortgage debacle.  The Washington Post published an article in December detailing the blatant disregard for fiscal responsibility on the part of Fannie’s and Freddie’s top executives.  Their operating orders came from Frank and Dodd.  They should be held accountable.  Period.barney-frank

When kids get in trouble in this country, parents hire lawyers and deny their child’s accountability and, therefore; their own accountability.  Your kid did it.  He/she should be held accountable.  Period.

Roger Clemens could ultimately be charged with perjury for lying to congress about using steroids.  We all know he lied.  If Roger is charged, and we can prove the CEOs of the banks lied to Congress, these perjured executives should be next, right?  They ran their companies into the ground.  They should be held accountable.  Period.

I’m Sorry, Mr. President, You Don’t “Get It”

Obama has promised to hold to account the perpetrators of this financial crisis.  “I know how unpopular it is to be seen as helping banks right now, especially when everyone is suffering in part from their bad decisions,” Obama said. “I promise you – I get it.”

I’m sorry.  You don’t get it.  The fact that you acknowledge ‘everyone is suffering’, yet enact legislation that creates unprecedented inequities for a majority of Americans, proves your ignorance.  Where is the balance?

“I understand that on any given day, Wall Street may be more comforted by an approach that gives banks bailouts with no strings attached, and that holds nobody accountable for their reckless decisions,” Obama stated. “But such an approach won’t solve the problem.”

Please, tell me, Mr. President.  Where is the accountability?  Where are the strings?  Under your current plan, the banks receiving government bailout money are in no way required to assist American taxpayers or to disclose a detailed account of their allocation of taxpayer money.

The Associated Press did some fact checking and published the following this morning:

OBAMA: “We have launched a housing plan that will help responsible families facing the threat of foreclosure lower their monthly payments and refinance their mortgages. It’s a plan that won’t help speculators or that neighbor down the street who bought a house he could never hope to afford, but it will help millions of Americans who are struggling with declining home values.”

THE FACTS: If the administration has come up with a way to ensure money only goes to those who got in honest trouble, it hasn’t said so.

I would like to add the following FACTS:

  • If you are unemployed, you are not eligible.
  • If you are current on your mortgage, you are not eligible (you must be in default)
  • If you have a non-conforming loan (greater than $400+K), you are not eligible.

Can the Obama administration clarify the President’s comments from last night?
