Code Pink: FIRE GEITHNER!
At the first AIG hearing March 18 here, a handful of CODEPINK women sat behind AIG CEO Edward Liddy, holding signs with messages including "Give Our Money Back," "Fire Geithner" and "AIG (arrow) JAIL."
The six women, who arrived at 5 a.m. to get seats at the hearing, said they meant to send the message that Congress must hold the bankers accountable for bringing down the American financial system, that it must no longer bail them out with taxpayer money, and that it must stop swindling Americans by draining their pockets on two major wars. They also called for the firing of Treasury Secretary Geithner.
"Geithner is too close to Wall Street to look at this financial crisis through the eyes of Main Street," [said Medea Benjamin, CODEPINK co-founder].
Don't you love it when Liberalism Comes Full Circle?
How do they get elected? Great question. In Barry's case, as far as I'm concerned, he stole the election with ACORN. Are you hearing any buyers remorse from any Libs that you personally know? I'm not. The ones I know who voted for him are wrapped up in complete and total denial. They will not criticize their Messyiah.
