President McDreamy! President McDreamy! Over here! Over here!
Yes. Thank you. My question is this: how do you know that if we don’t keep throwing (my) money at these large corporations, that life as we know it will end?
I mean, I know you’re a smarty pants and all, and I’m sure you’ve got some pretty intelligent people around you (atch-yeahrightlikeGeitner-choo!), but what assurances can you give me that the folding of AIG will bring death and destruction to us all?
Uh-huh. So would you say that you’re sure about that? I mean, as sure as you were that bonuses wouldn’t be paid to execs? On a scale of one to ten?
I know about the deficit you inherited- from your own party (ehem). But don’t you think it a little premature to project a halving of that deficit by the end of your first term? I’m no Geitner, but even I know that you can’t reduce your debt by buying more stuff.
Yeah, yeah, infrastructure. Which is great. We can absolutely use better roads and buildings, and I’m sure the watershed authority in my draught-ridden state will be joyfully proclaiming your name. But let’s be honest- how much of that loose change will go directly to infrastructure, and how much of it went to little weekend estates on Martha’s Vineyard?
Don’t get me wrong. I’m SO glad I’m now a stakeholder in several car companies, insurance agencies and banks. Makes me feel like Rockefeller.
So ante up, Mr. President. How does one summon the storm and profess to control the waves?
Pretty sure there was only one person who could do that.
And you’re not him.
