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.

JimWhiteGNV @emptywheel Wouldn't it be interesting if it turns out the ship has US arms headed to Yemen?

emptywheel Good thing Iran seized a cargo ship today rather than next week when US will have made it terrorism. Remarkable timing.

emptywheel @thegrugq This surely undercuts his cred w/Congress. If you're not sucking NSA's teat you must be a nobody. @mattblaze

emptywheel @thegrugq @mattblaze is the same guy who yesterday didn't know he could bill millions if he said "cyber" in NoVa.

emptywheel BC O's embrace of "surveillance reform" is actually even MORE limited than his embrace of drone reform, but people are less skeptical.

emptywheel Now that folks are discovering what was clear 2 years ago: drone "reform" limited, maybe they can be skeptical abt Obama surveil "reform"?

emptywheel @OKnox That is the argument, yes. And yet the US is the one pushing the most bilats, no?

emptywheel @OKnox Sure. But does that mean WTO are not rules that were already written (largely by US)?

emptywheel @astepanovich @KevinBankston was somehow arguing JDs are better at footnotes than PhDs which seems odd to this PhD @mattblaze @kehldanielle

emptywheel @OKnox Don't we already have WTO? Did someone wipe away all those rules?
