    I’m surprised she can read. Who knew?

  2. heykev says:

    Oh my, no wonder we are in such dire states as a country. How can someone be a part of Congress and be totally ignorant of how the banking system works and how their directives got US into this mess in the first place. She reminds me of the loony aunt you have to talk to at family reunions. Your glad it’s just once a year and you hope she’s been taking her meds.

    I’m just glad that we are not doing anything really foolish like passing a “Stimulus” plan. After all, most recessions last 16 months and that means if we do NOTHING, we’ll be out of it this summer!

  3. EvaTheFrisbeeDog says:

    As she speaks in the ‘thought clouds’ above the bankers’ heads this jingle is playing:

    “Oh, those Golden Grahams.
    Oh, those Golden Grahams.
    Crispy, crunchy, graham cereal,
    brand new breakfast treat…”

  4. nascarnation says:

    Well as a guy in Texas told me many years ago……
    she couldn’t pour p*ss out of a boot with the toe cut off and directions on the heel………..

  5. Colonel1961 says:

    I’m sorry, I had to cut it off shortly after the ‘Captains of the Universe’ slur. Who the hell does this imbecile think she is? She is the problem, not the solution. Hey Maxine: kiss my ass, you illiterate loser.

    (SG: You have asked us ‘try to refrain from any unnecessarily violent or vulgar language.’ I found it to be necessary. Mea magna culpa.)

    p.s. I thought Buckwheat’s sister (chick behind MW) was dead…

  6. Howard Roark says:

    This woman is a complete bufoon. I’ve always been embarrassed for African Americans when I hear her speak. You can see her brain-by-proxy rush in to grab her mic before she divulges their secrets to the CSPAN audience like she did when she ‘grilled’ the oil executives last year.

    Her ugliness is exceeded only by her stupidity.

    For more embarrassing idiots, check out this ditz from yesterday’s Obama town meeting where I live: click the video . I’m not talking about the famous Henrietta The Homeless as the press has already dubbed her, but the woman behind her, as the footage will highlight at 1:06 into the clip. Can you see someone like her approaching you with a kitchen knife and that look in her eye?

  7. catie says:

    Just who are the imbeciles who constantly send this clown back to DC every two years? Maybe they just want her out of TX? Remember this is the same person who told the Oil Execs that “this socialist, I mean this Congresswoman”. . .
    We do get the government we deserve I guess. I would venture a guess George Washington is spinning in his grave.

    • JohnMG says:

      If you think it’s bad now, wait and see how many more like Waters will be elected in the next cycle once Obama takes over the census and the resultant redistricting in 2010.

      This coup will be accomplished without one shot being fired…for the time being, that is.

    • Colonel1961 says:

      ‘For the time being.’ Indeed.

    • TwilightZoned says:

      Florida has the same problem with C. Brown. The only reason she was elected was because of district redistribution. She is truly the epidome of the constituents she represents.

    • catie says:

      Brad, I hope you are not implying that those of us who have children who are retarded are married to our half siblings or cousins. I don’t think these people are retarded (just stupid welfare bums who don’t want to do anything but sit on their mac & cheese behinds, smoke dope and watch tv all day) but I do know some people who had their DS children who were of age vote for Obama (how they got around that I do not know and I did make a complaint). These losers who vote for Waters and the others are representative of that rogues gallery that was at the Messiah’s Town Halls this past week. There are a lot of stupid people in this country but that’s because they want to be stupid, welfare, grab a$$ bums. Those who are born retarded cannot help their condition. But the liberals always tell me I could have “prevented” this problem, while I wish their parents would have prevented them from being born but I don’t say that to them.

    • Inertia_90 says:

      Brad, I hope you don’t think that all black people sleep around and give birth to retarded children.

    • catie says:

      Inertia, I hope not as well.

    • Howard Roark says:

      I married a woman who had a DS uncle. I loved him, and as anyone who has any deeper acquiantance of DS people knows, they have more heart and soul than most of us. Maxine Waters is an angry witch, and she could do with a dose of DS, methinks.

      Brad, I’m sure you know it, but in an effort to clean up this playroom we call S&L a bit, (as Barack would say) let’s be clear: while the illegitimate rate in the African American community is at 70%, that does not mean that African Americans are having “retarded” babies.

    • Colonel1961 says:

      Not being a smart-alec – what’s DS?

    • Howard Roark says:

      DS=Down Syndrome

      Surely you remember when it was referred to by that Earth-loving, tree-hugging, hippy politician Al Gore: He gleefully called the House GOP the “extra-chromosone” crowd. That was a direct referrence to the condition that defines DS. The 21st pair in the DNA has an extra chromosone in DS folks.

    • Colonel1961 says:

      Well, when I lazily Googled it all I got was Nintendo DS.

      p.s. and don’t call me Shirley. ;-)

  8. oldswimcoach says:

    MW is likely the dumbest person to ever hold elective office. Unbelievable!

    • proreason says:

      now coach, coach…..that’s a pretty sweeping statement.

      for starters in the dumbest person sweepstakes there are the extended Kennedy family, Stretch Pelosi, Undertaker Reid, Cooler Jefferson, Drooling Bernie Franks, and of course, The Moron.

      but really, time constains the ability to respond

    • dulcimergrl says:

      Watching her reminds me of my two favorite Mark Twain quotes:

      Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.
      – Mark Twain, a Biography

      It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress.
      – Pudd’nhead Wilson’s New Calendar

      –guess things really haven’t changed all that much in 100 years.

    • oldswimcoach says:

      PR – I stand corrected. How about dumbest person of the week?

  9. Trogdor says:

    I thought she was from Georgia, but the wiki page says California? Just yikes, is all I have to say.

    She is the same one that punched that guard at the security check a few years ago isn’t she?

  10. Howard Roark says:

    She is a Ca. [Los Angeles district, ‘natch] rep: http://www.house.gov/waters/

  11. shalomsweetie says:

    I keep thinking that if only the guy behind her would choke her with his perfectly pink tie. It would be both fashionable and functional! Parfait!

  12. thetimeisright says:

    I watched this on cspn2 an fox buss. Ch. An thru the whole thing i was thinking. Geez is this not the Criminals complaning to the the thieves

    • proreason says:

      or your 13 year-old who somehow manages to get power over you.

      But then, your 13 year-old will eventually grow up.

  13. proreason says:

    The comments on this video are very humorous, and thanks for that because…..

    When you reflect on this woman’s contemptible performance seriously, it is genuinely frightening to think that people like her now have real power over our lives.

    The desire for revenge is oozing out of every pore of her body. She is actually trembling with eagerness to stick it to these men, who can do nothing but sit and take it, because unlike her, they are responsible to their share holders and can be recalled from their positions for one small mis-step. Look at her gleeful triumph as she lords her power over them for ignoring her childish demands in the past. You know she wants to shout out “Who’s stupid now, big powerful rich men? Who’s on top now? We beat you, and now we are going to punish you like you have never been punished before.”

    Although I do my best to hide it, some of you may have read between the lines that I am not 100% respectful of Barack Obama.

    But if the people like Maxime Waters somehow manage to gain the power of the presidency, it would make the regime of Comrade Moron seem like a Sunday stroll in the park.

    • Howard Roark says:

      Right on, proreason.

    • Perdido says:

      “…sit there and take it…???

      They shouldn’t have taken the money. Sitting there and taking it is part and parcel of the Faustian Deal they made. I like watching those wimps get it from those asses on the hill.

    • proreason says:

      “I like watching those wimps get it from those asses on the hill.”

      That’s because you have been brainwashed by the very people doing the grilling. It’s call class warfare, dupe.

      Every one of those CEO’s is a thousand times better than Maxime Waters, Drooling Bernie Franks, and hundreds of other criminal congressmen.

      And by the way, to put it in context….I think plenty of business people are scum and should be hung from the rafters. But there is NOTHING a business person can do that can BEGIN to compare to the damage that Maxine Waters and Drooling Bernie have and will do to this country.

  14. Barbie says:

    I could barely stomach the video. Congress let this TARP money go without ANY restrictions. Now ignoramus Maxine Waters and her ilk are in a tizzy? It’s due to their stupidity. The banks are just doing business. Maxine Waters is a blithering idiot. She’s like a drooling rabid dog – NOBODY can understand what she’s asking – she doesn’t know. What a hysterical hag. She is such an embarrassment to this country.

  15. 12 Gauge Rage says:

    This isn’t a hearing, it’s more like a kangaroo court. Why doesn’t Miss Waters take into account the irresponsibility of a lot of Americans into taking out more credit cards that they had no way of paying back. Nobody holds a gun to your head to make you sign on the dotted line to accept a credit card and it’s conditions. Proreason, these people are already tapped into the power of the presidency and are using these hearings to hone their skills of ruthlessness against those they dislike.

  16. U NO HOO says:

    Maxine Waters, Barbara Boxer, Di Fi, Nancy P. U., all from Kalifornia.

    Ever hear the joke about bunching the flies…?

  17. sheehanjihad says:

    I dont know where to post this….but at two this afternoon, Clarence “Bob” Dawson of the 242nd Infantry, Rainbow Div. Wounded combat Veteran passed away. He was a good man….and American. These people in these hearings owe their ability to be stupid to his sacrifice against tyranny. I dont know, I am just saddened by his passing. Another of the greatest generation is gone……..I’ll shut up now.

  18. Perdido says:

    Maxine is America’s female version of Robert Mugabe.

  19. Nimblicity says:

    2:17 “…I feel more like Corporal of the Universe…not Captain, at the moment…”

    We’re living in a the new Ayn Rand novel from beyond the grave: Atlas Groveled

    The latter chapters could get ugly before the story gets better.

    • oldswimcoach says:

      My favorite exchange was MW hammering them about fees – poor dear couldn’t comprehend the banks paid them to underwriters.

      I am still confused by the “predatory lending” quotes from congressmen in general. Unlike the government, a bank can’t put a gun to your head and make you do something (like take out a loan). Personal responsibility obviously is not part of the congressional repertoire of blame.

    • Howard Roark says:

      poor dear couldn’t comprehend the banks paid them to underwriters.” Funny!

      Unlike the government, a bank can’t put a gun to your head and make you do something (like take out a loan“. Right on. Too bad that 100 years of subversive communist infiltration of our US educational system has succeeded in:
      1) Reinforcing victimhood among minorities by making so many allowances based on race.
      2) Dumbing down the class curriculum.

      Maxine Waters is a product of her environment. They may have won.

  20. BillK says:

    It’s obvious all these sham “hearings” are for is to prove to the American public that private banks can no longer be trusted and only the Federal Government can truly perform banking in the “best interests of the people.”

    • shalomsweetie says:

      This is what drives me the craziest is this unbelievable, blind hypocrisy! The irony is too rich for any sane mind to take–these pharisees! Any rudimentary psychologist would refer to it as “transference.” But worse worse worse is taking any kind of tongue-lashing from such an ignorant nit-wit like Maxine Waters. Why didn’t these CEO’s just walk out?

    • proreason says:

      “blind hypocrisy”

      Hypocricy requires an ability to think critically.

      Maxime is just plain stupid.

  21. Steadyjohn says:

    I am surprised that these groveling execs were not sent off to the gulags. They will rue the day they accepted the TARP money. A Stalinist interrogation if ever there was one!

  22. canary says:

    Maxcine Waters:”And guess what this liberal will be all about? This liberal will be all about socializing…..uh..ohum…..will be about……..basically….taking over..and the government running all of your companys.” Man to her right shows no reaction. 2nd woman to her right does the curled finger over the mouth allah Obama is known to do. He explains in his book “Dreams of my Father”, how the gestures and mannerisms of his father’s large hands when speaking, embedded in his mind, and beome his own.

    Meanwhile, as soon as Obama heard this cue from the drillers, he halted off shore drilling. !!!! The universal public transportation will become a reality. If American try and escape and flee the country, a push of a button, and allah Obama’s new Green Army will halt all transportation, preventing us to defect.

  23. artboyusa says:

    Condolences for your loss, SJ.

  24. Liberals Demise says:

    Before they wheel Max out in front of the camera, they should do a better make up job on her………then place 2 grocery bags over her head. She’s a 2 bagger for sure!! ( children may be watching )

  25. brad says:

    This shaved ape is the kind of America we have in store for ourselves if we keep voting for democrats. It will be (or already is) the same kind of tribal warfare and idiotic nonsense that plagues africa.

    Time to move away to Idaho and start over, sure it’s cold there, but gov’t isn’t up our arse like it is everywhere else.

  26. 12 Gauge Rage says:

    So how long is this democratic version of the Spanish Inquisition supposed to last? Until they get a coerced confession?

  27. GuppyNblue says:

    Makes you want to laugh and cry. The kook radicals that elected her obviously meant to harm the nation when they did.

    • proreason says:

      “The kook radicals that elected her obviously meant to harm the nation when they did.”

      My first reaction was to disagree and to say that instead her constituents are just looking for a sandwich and cheaper weed.

      But thinking about Rev Wrong’s church, and The Moron’s life…….you are correct.

      It’s all about punishing the country that did it to them……whatever “it” means (more free sneakers and abortions probably).

      On the other hand, the attitude is implanted in their otherwise empty brains by people like The Moron and Maxie, so I don’t really blame the children themselves.

    • Colonel1961 says:

      I don’t blame the children, but the adults deserve all the misery that comes their way. Cretins…

  28. canary says:

    Mama Madea should replace Maxine. No one would notice the difference , but Madea would do a better job. She’d have slapped those greedy bankers, along with the bizarre tirade they recieved..

  29. proreason says:

    Maxime was a teacher for the resoundingly successful Head Start program before being annointed as an affirmative action congressman.

    She somehow managed to escape high school with a diploma, but never attempted such gymnastiacs in the labyrinth of college, since when she attended, professors expected students to speak in complete sentences with proper tenses and grammer.

    One has to acknowlege that the financial industry has become astonisingly complex and technical.

    Maxime appears well qualified to put a stop to THAT.

  30. mybrotherkeeper says:

    “Those who endure to the end”– of her message–“shall be saved!” She is one of those idiots, who I know is such a stupid woman, I cannot waste the time listening to her. Cynthia McKinney is another.

  31. mybrotherkeeper says:

    I know how we could get a measure of relief from these folks: Tell them we are lobbying Israel to take over, permanently, all the lands they have not yet given back from the 1967 war. The reason: We are wanting to relocate to Israel and need the land to resettle. Could you imagine how angry Waters, et al, would be? This would be our trump card to keep them from totally disenfranchising us. The only thing they hate more than us is Israel. If Israel will agree, I will lead Hebrew and Yiddish classes!
