AIG bonuses? Bush and Paulson did it

Regardless of the Obama critiques making the rounds of late concerning AIG bonus payments, the following information is more in line with my own memory from November 2008 concerning the Bush-Paulson Bailout Bill and CEO retention payments.

Sometimes I think there’s no end to how stupid politicians think we are.  That’s when they bring out the usual, tiresome tactics – lying, obfuscating matters, and providing ‘hot-button’ diversionary issues – with the media’s help – like the AIG bonuses which pale in comparison to their ultimate mega-payday compliments of US taxpayers.

My usual guide is this: when a politician or political party says, LOOK HERE at this stew, always look ‘over there’ to see what they have bubbling on the back burner that works against our interests.

It will be much more substantial and long-range than the tacky sideshows and pot-boilers they promote to keep us divided against one another.
