AIG Exec: I quit!

I'm not sure how to think of this whole AIG bail-out followed by the bonuses fiasco, especially after this Letter to the Editor.

I am, however, having less and less respect for politicians in general and the Democrats in particular (including President Obama) because of the sheer cluelessness and stupidity that we have witnessed and been subjected to so far this year. It's been so bad that I don't know where to start in regards to writing about it. If the GOP was so stupid in what they have done in the past 8 years, then why didn't the Democrats learn a damned thing from the mistakes they made?

I think it's like what my uncle once told me: Democrat or Republican, they're all politicians who are wealthy, and they are all equally separated from how things really are for the rest of us. That is, their social and political culture - especially in D.C. - is so insular that they really can't relate to us anymore. Our fault is that we keep electing these people back into office who should have been voted out a long time ago.

I'll think about this some more so I can write more coherently instead of out the frustration that I'm feeling right now over how our "leaders" have been conducting themselves in recent weeks and months.

Sounds like your uncle was a wise man. It's so easy to forget bow the life really is when you have lots of money for a long time. Or some people never get to know it since they were born in wealth and never experienced anything else.

I'll be very much interested, if you decide to elaborate on this idea.

Take care, Elli

Just curious ... are you mad that the Dems and Tim Geitner and others have forked over billions of dollars to Wall Street?

Or is it something else?

Btw, I wasn't a big fan of DeSantis' letter. I thought of it as grandstanding.
