Fear Factor: White House Edition

From The Foundry:

“…I am indeed fearful writing this. It’s really a bad idea to speak out. Angering the President is a mistake…” What country would you expect to hear a citizen make this statement? Venezuela? Cuba? Russia? Nope, those are the words of prominent hedge fund manager Clifford Asness, who wrote a now-famous and widely circulated open letter this week describing the intimidation techniques used by President Obama and his administration.

Why did the President have to resort to such enhanced techniques of intimidation? Mainly because he was asking financial lenders to engage in the same unscrupulous acts his administration has been engaging in since January...
Head on over and read the whole thing. I wonder how long it will be before Hedge Fund Managers join us on the Obama Terrorist Watch List?

JR- I'm convinced this is only the beginning... AND there is no way the media is going to cover ANY negatives on the administration...

How long? About as long as it takes for any one of them to stand up on their hind legs and show some defiance to the Socialist-in-Chief and the extra-Constitutional BS that's going on.
