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 @LexAlexander And I would be more than happy for the guy to be prosecuted, jailed and bled dry. Just like for the discussion to be accurate.

bmaz @JasonFritz1 We do not have such boneheadedly inflexible rules here in the desert.

bmaz @LexAlexander Absolutely. But watching people say it is a "sex crime" or that the perpetrator is a "sex offender" is disconcerting.

bmaz @MonaHol @Forbes I don't think so. None of the subjects were minors.

bmaz .@MonaHol No, it is not a sex crime, and that is an asinine headline for @Forbes to run. http://t.co/ecj9xtScVy

JimWhiteGNV Heading outside to shovel horse shit in 93F heat. Much more pleasant than watching Balfour pitch 10th for #Rays.
