  •  Tired of the apologia (17+ / 0-)

    Tired of people not facing up to things because it's too painful for them to believe that their hero is corrupt.

    What do you do if you are president?

    You tell the fucking country the truth, first off.  If they are trying to hold the country hostage, tell the public.  Then fully or partially nationalize the banks and straighten them out. Then hire honest people to run them and throw the ones who robbed the country and (by your theory) threatened the president into jail.

    Instead of having 200 FBI agents in place because thousands of them were transferred to jobs where they entrap Muslim men into terrorist ploys, put them back on the banking investigations.  Hire thousands of people in all the regulation and DoJ departments that you need and pull the resources from the bloated Homeland Security department who are currently surveilling and wasting all kinds of resources spying on Quakers and Occupy groups who pose no threat to this country.

    Nothing gets fixed if nobody is held accountable.

    If you are an honest man who is serving the people who put you in office, that's what you do.  If you are a corrupt man, you don't.

    Enough of the apologia.
