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 Israel, and, sadly, most likely Egypt, likely to blockade all building materials for a long time after offensive ends. Gaza doomed to ruins.

JimWhiteGNV Prediction: current hysteria over #TerrorTunnels means Gaza will sit in ruins for years: similar materials for building tunnels, houses.
