Obama Ad About Big Bird Cannot Find One Prominent Wall Street Criminal Prosecuted By Administration

This is an amusing ad by the Obama campaign, poking fun at Mitt Romney’s comment in the first debate about eliminating funding for PBS and Big Bird. President Obama has been getting good traction on the stump with the line about Romney looking out for Wall Street while fighting Sesame Street, and so they turned it into ad form. This was perhaps the most memorable line of the debate, and it came from Romney. Obama may have had a bad debate performance, but he gave the Romney campaign few quotable lines to work with. So it’s the Romney lines that get highlighted in ads.

There’s only one thing that sticks out to me about this ad, though the casual viewer probably won’t notice it. Let’s look at that litany of Wall Street “criminals” and “gluttons of greed,” which later get juxtaposed with Big Bird. You have Bernie Madoff, Ken Lay and Dennis Kozlowski. So two CEOs prosecuted and convicted by George W. Bush’s Justice Department, and Madoff, whose son turned him in before Obama took office, in December 2008, and who pleaded guilty.

So the Obama campaign could not fill a list of three Wall Street criminals that the Obama Justice Department actually sent to jail. Heck, they couldn’t fill a list of one!

Rest here…

    Obama is a failure. All of the so-called progressive groups, including MoveOn, barely mention Obama’s absolute failure to do anything about Wall Street’s ponzi attack. This is most likely because not enough millions are being bankrupted and fraudclosed upon. It pays big to ignore the real burning issues and focus on important but far less critical social change.
    To the casual conspiracy theorist, one must wonder whether Wall Street/DC in fact behaved much the way a domestic spy-terror agency would function in any number of legendary tyranny filled nation states of the 20th Century. Come at the populace in a subtle deregulated way, not with dogs and SS symbols, or goons and guns, but send loan predators and grifters en-masse to strip a sizable number of the population into destitution, take their rights, and throw them away or ignore them after the damage has been done. They are getting away with it. What comes next?
