Barrel jump out of the Obama articles your own.
Or rent it out now for the -- and political stunt that's actually not -- -- solo -- -- an opponent in the daily news this morning.
And a -- -- is one of hope and change become more slippery shale.
Yeah well I mean there's a lot of reasons to think like that I mean I think that.
The article we knew we wanted to do was basically about it.
Who Obama hired to run his economic team you know he during the campaign he didn't exactly run -- Xena -- Juarez as a candidate but he was.
Probably a lot more progressive yet people like -- -- -- from -- Chicago.
What other assignment I'm an example well there are things you don't -- Obama for instance -- one.
Easy example he said he was going to renegotiate NAFTA you know when he was running and all those Rust Belt states you know everybody had been laid off you know -- he was saying he wanted to look part of the free trade agreements united obviously was very concerned about the -- jobs overseas.
-- had people advising him saying that you know these these agreements are problematical he gets elected and immediately gets rid of these economic advisors and brings in a whole bunch of people close to Bob Rubin.
Clinton's former Treasury Secretary.
-- and his people are all ardent free traders and one of the first announcements they made after Obama got elected as we're not gonna do anything to change NAFTA so this is you know.
This an example of how.
He said one thing Williams on the campaign trail and you know he cuts and another thing after he became president -- thank you -- what is settlement amber and Verlander persuaded otherwise.
What do you think it was dozens and masonic -- until that's kind of an open question I think it's it's really kind.
My it's my sense is that Obama is more just a political pragmatist I think he.
Probably after he got elected he had a bunch of people and -- saying you know these are the guys we need to bring in because they're the pros they've been there before you know and so he brought an all these people who were you know.
Pretty much his entire economic team has some kind of -- either to Citigroup.
Goldman Sachs it.
Or the -- You know white house on under Bob Rubin Geithner were tougher for -- Gary chancellor who runs the commodities action.
Commodity Futures Trading Commission he worked for Goldman and for Rubin.
People in the National Economic Council summer's work -- and Jason Furman all these people.
They have some kind of connection to this guy and they and they all have this you know belief in economic deregulation.
And sort of a hands off attitude towards Wall Street.
And you know it it probably wasn't you know the right signal listen to the rest of the country to bring in all these Wall Street.
You know -- -- -- -- this enormous collapse of the economy but that's what -- We're talking about her role as somebody is article Obama's big sell off on -- on -- cents an hour.
-- anything outside did you all him.
On more of them all the people who supported him but -- -- Turn signal light and and I mean.
It is to people who thought even while -- took awhile for your own Frank Rich rumor I wanted to turn on him so pretty and what we're terrorism ring in his answers -- You know frank Chris and I are talking to some of the same people so that's that's part of that -- but -- no I mean I think.
We will a lot of people had to sort of wait and see attitude towards what you know when -- -- was gonna do ridiculous.
It was pretty immediately and Obama after he got to let them ended the day after he got elected he hired to you know he hired -- -- city group executive named Michael from and to run -- economic transition team now.
Parents of this -- making all the decisions.
For who Obama's gonna hire and they do you know the Bush Administration was still in charge -- they did -- Citigroup bailout.
Two weeks after that and you know obviously a lot of the people who -- involved in that.
Were you know communicating in liason with bill Obama campaign.
And so there's you know it it just didn't look very good united written in the same day that the -- bill it was it was announced.
Disguise from an hires Tim Geithner to be the Treasury Secretary and it sort of looks like a -- a quid pro quo you know you give our company in massive bill -- -- the Treasury Secretary.
And I think it was stuff like that that started to -- -- the press corps you know and people like me and maybe Frank -- that.
Obama had decided to throw in -- ships with with this group of people the Clinton does -- -- I just my questions ultimately different.
But Michael -- and is.
Ball wasn't just some generous woman running Edward -- incidence element.
Well I don't know I mean I don't know it's it's it's -- mean that's the -- -- I mention the day's news ever.
-- a lot of people had a sense you know that Barack Obama is probably more progressive personally and he's shown is as president.
But there's really no evidence of that.
You know I think this is what people believe in Obama has this.
Really unique kind of -- on equality.
That everybody who watches and thinks that he secretly believes what they believe and that's that's that's the quality every gifted politician also have gotten out when Bill Clinton had the same thing and everybody thought deep down inside this guy's really on my -- -- But you know if you look at the actual record you know that's that's when that's what you actually have to pay attention to him and.
Well I'll select about this whole story as -- back one.
It's an issue Rhoda Goldman -- article and -- -- -- though -- just don't become famous vampire -- line there's an accident to -- my match and to Franklin wrote.
And they were back that you could do it because you could hear under wars you know -- -- be read my drive -- -- -- -- May have misled.
And now well on a run an editorial in the Wall Street Journal in which the focus is courted your -- And I didn't really -- must be surreal.
Did is it is definitely really weird it's really weird to see Goldman working overtime that credit you know repair their image in talking about there.
You know on God's side and you know Jesus would have approved all their bonuses and all this stuff it's almost like -- gun -- What's -- -- Wall Street Journal has played and if so what sort of defending gold site.
There's so what we're all there were what is known as real burden to the forgotten where -- -- -- hard -- -- redemptive electors forever going back to the roster albums ago.
Red area that's that that was the defense -- even that Goldman came out with sort of rent it -- afterwards once.
Well yeah we weren't the only ones and you know media of course -- vampires -- -- -- you know I'm not the only vampires I don't know like I like that changes anything it's really really weird stuff.
