Big Bird Says Neither Obama Nor Mitt Know Who Our Bankster Enemies Are

[youtube]bZxs09eV-Vc[/youtube]

This ad is justifiably getting a lot of attention. It’s well made, dramatic. And somewhat damning to Mitt Romney.

Seriously though. How does this help Obama?

Bernie Madoff. Ken Lay. Dennis Kozlowski. Criminals. Gluttons of greed.

These are not the people who destroyed our economy.

Lloyd Blankfein is. Obama’s DOJ chose not to prosecute him even after he lied to Congress.

Angelo Mozilo is. Obama’s SEC gave him a wristslap and DOJ did nothing.

DOJ isn’t even joining in the what’s-old-is-new suit against JP Morgan and Bear Stearns, five years later, and Eric Schneiderman isn’t charging any human beings there.

This ad shows well that Mitt doesn’t understand which villans threaten our country.

But it also shows that Obama has the very same willful misunderstanding.

Update: DDay makes the same point.

bmaz @dmataconis I mean, murder, assault, rape etc, absent a fed person victim are simply common law state crimes. Period.

bmaz @dmataconis Yep. Agree about Fed HC laws too. Unnecessary+just gives them path to bigfoot and steal jurisdiction from states where belongs.

bmaz @dmataconis I just object to relative valuation of different victims. Is crime really worse because defendant shouted an epithet?

bmaz @dmataconis Exactly. To extent its relative, mental state already in play in elements of underlying crime.

bmaz @dmataconis Note that the Supreme Court has heard my arguments+found hate crimes constitutional in their face. I am prob in minority here.

bmaz @dmataconis Also fairly leery of the 1st Amnd/thought crime aspects. The crime is the thing; mental state already an element for culpability

bmaz @dmataconis Because are often separate crimes, not merely sent. considerations. And still the issue are some victims inherently worth more?

emptywheel @SarahKnuckey Isn't an attack on KSA the same as an attack on the US?
