Obama Fires Teachers, Rewards AIG Execs

Obama said he was happy that over 100 teachers, coaches and counselors at a Rhode Island school were fired last week.

He said teachers need to be held accountable and that's what happened when all these people were fired.

Now the U.S. taxpayer owns AIG after the company nearly brought down the financial system back in 2008 and had to be bailed out with hundreds of billions of government dollars.

Last quarter the company lost $8.87 billion dollars.

That's billion with a "b."

Has anybody at the company been held accountable by President Accountability?

Not exactly.

Management is having their salary increases cut. They're only going to get 10% raises this year.

Only 10%.

For losing $8.87 billion in one quarter.

That's accountability for you.

I called the White House this afternoon to let them know it's sell-out stuff like this has me hoping Democrats lose in both 2010 and 2012.

You should call or email too.

Let 'em know what you think of President Accountability handing out 10% raises to AIG execs but writing the federal rules so that thousands of teachers will be fired.


  1. Obama can't seem to do anything so he needs a scapegoat. This seems the only problem he can look like he is fixing.

  2. You are so right. But I hope he ends up failing at NCLB re-authorization too.
