Does anyone have big enough balls left to run this country right? Or are balls even necessary any more? Are they obsolete? Should we just throw up our hands, admit defeat and hand the place over to Hillary?
Exhibit A: Mitt Romney. Here’s five reasons we can’t vote for Mitt Romney: Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse and Citigroup, five of the largest banks and the top five contributors to Romney’s campaign. Would it be fair to say, in light of this, Mitt’s balls are no longer his own? It would be more accurate to call him a whore for the big banks, but that doesn’t rhyme with wimp, and we can’t see any way around Obama’s inherent wimpiness at this point.
It does take balls, on the part of the banks anyway, to stand up in front of the country and insist what they’re doing is good for all of us or even most of us. That whole “a free market will save us” and “get government out of business’s way” – they don’t even believe that any more. The big banks are currently taking our money (from the Federal Reserve, at zero percent interest) and buying government bonds with most of it (i.e., charging us interest on it) without risking or investing a dime. So the biggest champions of the free market (the banks) won’t touch the market with a ten foot pole under these conditions. Betting on the government instead.
