There is now further evidence that Barack Obama aligns himself closely with those who caused America’s financial meltdown.
The meltdown is rooted in government-forced loans to people who did not qualify for the credit.
Enter Barack Obama’s Finance Chairwoman Penny Pritzker:
The candidate has even lauded Ms. Pritzker’s business practices as a model for an Obama administration.
“He knows the Pritzker family. He knows what happened in Illinois. He knows that Superior Bank was one of the first to securitize subprime mortgages,” Mr. Courtney said. “He talks about change and helping people find a better way of life, but he has distanced himself from the fact that Superior helped ignite the nation’s subprime crisis and that Penny Pritzker and her family walked away from it and us.”
So this is the kind of “change” Barack Obama plans to bring to our country:
Mr. Courtney went to his Hinsdale, Ill., branch the Monday after the bank closed in 2001 and stood in line with hundreds of other concerned depositors. He said he’ll never forget overhearing a bank employee tell “one kindly old gentleman, maybe in his 80s, that the coffee and rolls were free but that was about all he was going to get from the bank.”
“The old man just sat down on the curb and cried. It was heartbreaking,” Mr. Courtney said. “They ran their bank like a sleazy car lot and left us holding the bag.”
More crooks in office, is the change Obama will bring.
