Brace Yourself for a Shocker

I’m here to give President Obama a handclap.

You read that right, folks, and I’m not being sarcastic.

From (brace yourself again) HuffingtonPost.com: Obama Officials Tell Citibank To Ditch Plans For $50 Million Private Jet

According to a report from ABC News, President Obama is not taking kindly to corporate greed, especially when it’s funded by taxpayer money. Read more from ABC here:

The high-flying execs at Citigroup caved under pressure from President Obama and decided today to abandon plans for a luxurious new $50 million corporate jet from France…

ABC News has learned that Monday officials of the Obama administration called Citigroup about the company’s new $50 million corporate jet and told execs to “fix it.”

On Monday, the news broke that bailed out bank was going through with its $50 million private jet purchase even though it had recieved $45 billion in government funds:

I really, really, reeeaaaally don’t understand what these companies who were bailed out are thinking. Good for the Obama administration to go all Don Corleone and give a little intimidating phone call.

    I remember it was your country that inflicted the Iranian 1953 coup where a dictatorial shah was placed to lead Iran. It was your country whose troops helped to overthrow then Iranian government without any aggression from Iran towards USA. It was your country that helped overthrow the DEMOCRATICALLY elected Salvador Allende and replaced him with dictator Augusto Pinochet whose reign of dicatorial terror cost many lives. I remember it was Ronald Reagan who viciously supported dictatorial rule of Pinochet. It was your country that provided Saddam weapons when he was fighting Iran (which had overthrown the leader U.S placed in 1953) It was also your country that decided to interfere at the Gulf when Saddam wouldn’t work by U.S interests anymore.

    I know most Americans don’t really study that much of foreign affairs since the education system is so utterly weak compared to Europe (I was an exchange student in NC and English courses handled issues such as the upcoming football game and the students were able to name 2 European countries) but please don’t pretend this “We are force of good who leaved peacefully until these ruthless evil terrorists came out of nowhere to attack us for no reason”

    It was U.S of Eisenhower that started to interfere with the islamic world BEFORE there was any aggression towards you.

    Bravo, President Obama.

    These people STILL think that they’re above the law, above responsibility, and above accountability and it sickens me.

    Things have changed, people. Get used to it.

    Whoa, Johan! Whoa!

    Step away from the keyboard. Step away.
