Obama Compares AIG To A Suicide Bomber

The idiocy continues..... and what ever happened to "we don't negotiate with terrorists?"

But today, President Obama took that rhetoric in a different direction. He actually upped the ante explaining that AIG is like a suicide bomber.

“We had to step in, it was the right thing to do, even though it is infuriating,” Obama said, explaining why the government needed to bail out the troubled banks.

“The same is true with AIG,” he said. “It was the right thing to do to step in. Here’s the problem. It’s almost like they’ve got — they’ve got a bomb strapped to them and they’ve got their hand on the trigger. You don’t want them to blow up. But you’ve got to kind of talk them, ease that finger off the trigger.”

If Barack Obama wants to compare AIG to a suicide bomber, which in case slow-witted people do not understand, are "terrorists", then he should stay consistent and admit that no one should have ever "negotiated" (think BAILOUT) with them either.

In reality, he is speaking about hostage takers and the like, not terrorists, when speaking of talking them from pulling a trigger, he is simply mixing his metaphors, but hey, we are supposed to take him seriously, right? So perhaps, if he is going to speak of suicide bombers/terrorists, he should have stayed consistent and not offered them the $30 billion bailout, then signed the stimulus bill which had an amendment guaranteeing the $165 million in bonuses.

Just a thought.

Watching Obama and his administration trip over themselves over the last 2 months has been like watching a train wreck, you know the crash is coming, you know you cannot stop it, you know it is going to be ugly but..... you...can't....look....away....
