Arianna Huffington Agrees with Sense on Cents

Posted by Larry Doyle on August 1, 2009 4:04 PM |

Regardless of what you may think about Arianna Huffington or her politics, I strongly encourage you to review this recent Bloomberg interview. She addresses the incestuous nature of the relationship between Wall Street and Washington. This perspective gets little to no air time from major media outlets. In my opinion, this big money relationship rests at the core of many serious problems in our country today.

The two video clips run less than ten minutes. Please view them from a macro- perspective and assess what they mean for our country going forward.

All comments encouraged.

    Move On and Huffington were major supporters of Obama. Now when he presents more of the same, will they continue to back him. She especially fingers Larry Summers. I do not like Arriana, but she is right on that

    The way the health care bill is diminishing , there might be an interesting show coming up. The progressives are starting to counter the Blue Dogs. Might be that Obama will have to make choices.

    On Public Radio there was a round table discussing the health bill. They felt Obama could be doing more leading and the Republicans have been able throw sand in the air and the public is confused on what is going on. Apparently the original bill had a prohibition for Doctors to own hospitals. A contribution to the Democratic party got that removed. If this is what is going on, a rebellion could develop.

    Time to stock up on popcorn for the show.

    Fiscal…..Mr. Redenbacher is going to be quite busy. I receive calls everyday from people getting increasingly angry about a wide range of political and financial issues.

    As much as people on Wall Street and Washington may want to think that our overall situation is improving, it strikes me that the programs that have been implemented are masking a growing level of anxiety and discontent.

    I think Obama’s popularity is declining as this anxiety and discontent increases.

    In regard to Ms. Huffington, no doubt she is a political animal herself, but the topics she addressed here resonated with yours truly.
