  •  If the President vetos, it will draw a heck of a (9+ / 0-)

    lot of attention to a bill that has so far moved under the radar.

    That will create a very real possibility that many Congresspeople won't be so eager to let it pass, particularly right before the election.

    Genuinely sorry for being a little brusque.  

    Clinton used to pull that "Veto proof-majority" line to cover signing all kinds of noxious shit, and I kinda jerked the knee in response to your comment instead of taking your question in good faith, as it was obviously meant.

    My bad.

      ...it's a good chance for Obama to make a break with the criminals and become a Great President. At least put the blame back at the feet of this worthless Congress and claim the moral high road.

      Still, I think attention is the last thing this industry wants on this matter...attention breeds distrust, and that's what they trade in.

        I never expected, in a million years it would come from this amazing source...

        RH 3808.....is and will become, at least I think it may....become a point of where President Obama, might have to stand up to...

        What I really find amazing about this rush in bill, on his desk now is this:

        not one House member or Senator gave their names to have this disaster pass..

        they think, and what to pass it under us, in the dark of the night, so we will not pay attention to it, but it gives, the ultimate 'Rubber Stamp' which as I said in my diary is no different from what Bush did with the OCC law, that protected Americans for 140 years, that Bush overturned.  It is no different from Gramm/Leach and other did in the dead of night, and it is no different than what Geithner did to pass an amazing bill the same day Gramm did, on Christmas Eve, to give Freddie and Fannie Mac and full and endless ATM, right into the hearts of the American taxpayers, that is an open checkbook, to those, that are sold our nation down the road.

        We keep thinking that the two party system is different: it is not.  I'm not at all surprised by the reactionary politics at all...the tea party members...Americans are all outraged....but let us stop thinking this is all about race and color..it is not..

        It is about money.

        And who sold us out.

        Thanks for your great comment.

          ...rather than make pretty speeches that signify exactly nothing lacking real stands. Bill "Slick Willy" Clinton is no role model to emulate...unless you want a hindered and fifty million from corporate America after you leave office and the judgment of history that you were a corrupt arsehole.

          BTW where are the "Good Guys" in Congress on warning about this banker’s bill nobody wrote?
