Oh, Good Grief… Barack Obama: Americans Are Frustrated… With Banks

Obama reverted back to his old community organizing tactics today during his so-called jobs speech. The president said Americans are frustrated… with the banks(?)
The Los Angeles Times reported:

President Obama said Thursday that the Occupy Wall Street protests show a “broad-based frustration” among Americans about how the U.S. financial system works.

Speaking at an East Room news conference, Obama said he has monitored the movement, which has spread to dozens of cities nationwide.

“I think it expresses the frustrations the American people feel, that we had the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, huge collateral damage all throughout the country … and yet you’re still seeing some of the same folks who acted irresponsibly trying to fight efforts to crack down on the abusive practices that got us into this in the first place,” he said.

Obama said he used “a lot of political capital” to prevent a financial meltdown and ensure banks remained solvent after he took office. He also touted the financial reform legislation he and Democrats in Congress moved through in 2010.

Obviously, Barack Obama was reverting back to his old community organizing days.
In his early years, Barack Obama, the community organizer, sued banks and lenders to ease lending practices.

    When Obama assumes personal reponsibility for the state of the nation that he created or perpetuated, the healing process will begin. Don’t worry, he won’t because his ego won’t let him.

    “President Obama said Thursday that the Occupy Wall Street protests show a “broad-based frustration” among Americans about how the U.S. financial system works.”

    For once he’s right. Watch the video in the article below:

    Banks don’t frustrate me in the least bit, however I do find the clueless lunatic in the White House to be not only frustrating but annoying.

    Rip VanBullwinkle,

    If banks don’t frustrated you, it is because you don’t have a clue how the Federal Reserve Banks works.

    Stop it already – #HeilObama and the administration are not ‘community organizing’.

    This is playing out EXACTLY as it did when Nazi Germany was ramping up.

    Oh that’s right…… I keep forgetting…… “It can’t happen here”.

    Never mind.

    An Alinskyite to the end. A responsible President would condemn anarchy and an attempt to violently overthrow the government and all of our institutions and send in Federal Marshals and even the National Guard to put down this insurrection, but he is an enabler along with George Soros, and they are most likely behind it. The organizers have clear ties to the Obama reelection campaign and “Organize for America” or whatever they call themselves these days to deceive Americans…especially DRONES who still haven’t caught on to them. These anarchists want the very entrepreneurs and capitalists they wish to put out of business to DONATE free products and services to them to accomplish their mission. They use all the marvelous inventions created by capitalists and entrepreneurs but want their creators bankrupted…or worse. They would fit right in during the French Revolution and the “Arab Spring”, so maybe they need to take their show on the road to one of those countries and see how much fun they have.

    Limbaugh put it best. He said if they want the kind of country they are advocating for, go to North Korea…it is exactly what they are clamoring for.

    Does he REALLY believe we’ll forget the GOVT REGULATIONS from the Marxist One Worlders such as himself and his puppet master, from Chris Dodd and Barney Franks and the like, that have MADE “BANKING” TODAY what it is TODAY?????????

    Does he really think HE can (be one of those who personally) see to it that “Wall Street Protesters” can be PAID BY SOROS to go party in the streets DIM STYLE and we’ll all think “People are unhappy with BANKS”???????????

    There may be no Justice on earth for skunks like Odrama Queen, but there will be a Day of Reckoning for him on that Day when he stands before the Living God as he prepares to enter the Eternity HE CHOSE FOR HIMSELF. That day, he will answer for each of his actions, each of his WORDS.

    What this man excels at is getting one group of Americans to hate another group of Americans. That is what he does, that is how he governs.

    These remarks today are one piece of evidence that the ‘protests’ are being orchestrated from the Oval Office. Another is that the unions have signed on. That would never happened in such a big way without Obama’s approval. Another piece of evidence is the laudatory news coverage. Another is that the timing supports his current assault on Congress for his new spending bill. Another is that Washington, DC is not one of the cities targeted, thereby keeping him and the Democrats out of the optics. Another is that they are happening just when he needs a distraction from his rising scandals and sinking polls.

    A final piece of evidence is that these protests are, well, vintage Obama. They get one group of Americans to hate another group of Americans.

    And by the way, doesn’t it now look like Wisconsin was just a dry run?

    The Indonesian Imbecile on Solyndra and blowing a hlaf-billion bucks on stupid things:

    “That’s what Congress does … make bets.” [paraphrased from memory]

    I also loved the nugget the Jakarta Retard had about his strong feeling that “as a general rule” laws should be upheld … kinda.

    And the Whine House press corpse let the Imbecile get away with all of it. It was a pathetic showing on both sides … from the imbecile who invented that laughable non-concept of “profit and earnings ratios” to the retards who have their noses buried deep up the Indonesian Imbecile’s ass begging him for help on complex financial issues that lie clearly outside of Barky’s ability to comprehend in any way, at all.

    And, yet, this all continues to go on …

    The Constitutional Union of American States … it’s coming.

    Isn’t he going to be running low on contributors for his campaign? You can only throw so many segments of the population under the bus before you start running out of people. Just saying….

  • justavoter

    This guy is so fake and transparent that it’s a joke.

    People are frustrated with the politicians manufacturing straw men in weak attempts to advance their Marxist agendas.
