AIG Bonus Bailouts CNN Video: President Obama Takes Responsibility 

President Obama takes responsibility for the AIG bonus fiasco.  It was an intelligent political decision.  The only problem is it's a ruse.  It's meant to take people's attention away from the bonus cover-up currently under way.

Taking Responsibility? Not at all!

This is merely finesse. An attempt to dismiss the story.

O is obviously winking and gaming. It is utter BS to say you are responsible but you didn't cause the problem. Then to immediately point to an entire industry and our economic structure as the cause of the disaster.

O indicates he is just the mechanic needed to fix all. Yes. If he is that essential give him a retention bonus.

Command responsibility can mean something if you were in command. But O was not.

However he is no more evasive or disingenuous than most of our politicians. He is much more skilled.

We are ruled by Weasels. Worse yet, they are Weasels with the power to take anything you have including your freedom.

Free....Are we truly free or is it just a grand "illusion" of freedom? Ponder that for a while.......

Ain't: You will have to travel the path of pondering w/o me.

Pondering our existence, freedom, or free will IMO means there is no purpose to blogs.

But I am rather sure that whatever many hope to impose upon us will not be mistaken for freedom.

OT. One fad in the Realm Of Ponderation (yep - I just made that up) is to regard our universe as a simulation; a computer game being played by those we cannot imagine. For the sake of language I will call them the Gods and imagine them similar to the Olympians.

"President Obama Takes Responsibility...."

..then he quickly handed it over to one of his assistants, along with instructions to; "Here, take this and HIDE it somewhere were I won't have to deal with it for at least another 3 years"
