(Via Instapundit) What does crony capitalism look like?
This is what crony capitalism looks like:
"He came in to do his talk and opened his talk with, ‘I’m Matt Rogers I am the Special Assistant to the Secretary of Energy and I have $134 billion that I have to disperse between now and the end of December,’" [Obama client and crony capitalist Paul] Holland told the audience. "So upon hearing that I sent an email to my partners that said Matt Rogers is about to get treated like a hooker dropped into a prison exercise yard."
Holland continued: "And I had the lack of judgment to go up and share that with him and the other people who were all standing around him...Fortunately for me they all laughed and thought it was funny.”
Oh, I'm sure that it was hysterical. I always enjoy it myself when parasites talk so cavalierly about the government urinating away billions of tax dollars that my two kids are going to have to figure out eventually how to pay for. Particularly when it involves 'supporting' 'green' 'initiatives;' although I am forced to admit that, based on Obama's current track record, the very word 'green' will be as about as popular a political adjective by the time the man leaves office as 'liberal' is now.
Seriously, if you encounter the President and he wants to help you out on a public relations exercise, run. One of the things that they don't mention about the Midas touch is the radioactivity...
