Headline Of the Year

Lehman Managers Portrayed as Irresponsible

No kidding. Loved this:

One Lehman document among thousands reviewed by the House committee showed that four days before the bank filed for bankruptcy protection, Lehman’s compensation committee was asked to grant $20 million in “special payments” for three executives who were leaving, Mr. Waxman said. An e-mail exchange recommending a delay in bonus payments was apparently brushed aside.

Another document showed that executives were warned in a January 2008 meeting that the company was facing liquidity problems. Yet the firm moved forward with capital outlays, including $5 billion in bonuses, $4 billion in shares and $750,000 in dividend payments between 2007 and the firm’s bankruptcy filing on Sept. 15.

Awesome.

    John, you’re missing the comedy gold at the end of the AP article I found on Yahoo! News just now…here’s a quote:

    That suggestion came from Lehman’s money management subsidiary, Neuberger Berman. Waxman quoted George H. Walker, President Bush’s cousin and a Lehman executive who oversaw some Neuberger Berman employees, as responding with a dismissive tone to the idea of going without bonuses.

    "Sorry team," he wrote to the executive committee, according to Waxman. "I’m not sure what’s in the water at 605 Third Avenue today…. I’m embarrassed and I apologize."

    That could be one of the most elitist, callous, irresponsible quotes I’ve ever seen…and its from the president’s cousin of all people! Too ridiculous for words.

    On another but similar topic, how about Citi suing Wachovia because of the Wells Fargo deal? I mean, Citi wants to buy the commercial ops and have the taxpayers deal with the rest (as best as I can tell, I’m no expert). Versus having Wells buy the whole thing at no expense to the taxpayers. And now Citi wants to sue for something like $60 billion? What is this? If we can’t have it, nobody can? Just run it into the ground with legal bills? I’m sure there are many legal intracacies involved but I still find it unfuckingbelievable.

    Fifty-three percent of likely voters questioned in the poll say they are backing Obama for president, with 45 percent supporting McCain.
     
    That 8-point lead is double the 4-point lead Obama held in the last CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll, taken in mid-September.

    So Obama gets a headline of 5-points for a poll showing he actually has an 8-point lead. Brother can’t catch a break.

    Obama draws 28,000 to Asheville, NC – My Experience

    by fsugrad2005, Sun Oct 05, 2008 at 07:38:59 PM EST

    I attended Sen. Obama’s campaign rally today in Asheville, NC, and it was amazing. Asheville is located in the mountains of Western North Carolina, a very red area. Asheville itself, however, is a fairly liberal oasis surrounded by a sea of deep red. Police estimates indicate that Obama drew 28,000 people to the Asheville High Stadium, an unbelievable feat considering this state has not seen a major presidential candidate in many decades!

    Let’s put this number in perspective. In 2004, John Kerry got 51,868 votes in Buncombe County (Asheville is the county seat) and Bush got 52,391 votes. Yet Obama was able to draw MORE THAN HALF of either Bush’s or Kerry’s vote total for a rally. Simply Amazing! However, some of the people were from South Carolina or Tennessee, but the vast majority were from these parts.

He opened his own office last year, and besides the usual chiropractor stuff, has typical Eugene things like aromatherapy practitioners working for him. So I had an appointment with him this morning and he was spitting nails about the $700 billion bailout. He was ranting about a bailout for small businesses but you have to be really big and really incompetent to get in on the action.

    I’m not advocating any type of violence when I say that I can’t believe no one has started killing these execs by now.

    No. But judging from the headlines from the last few days, they have started killing themselves. First the 90-year-old who shot herself when the sheriff came to evict her from her foreclosed home (she survived, thankfully), now the unemployed financial manager who killed himself and his entire family in L.A.

    For being greedy assholes who drove the economy straight into the rocks, these execs should go to jail. For their greed causing ordinary people to become so despondent and hopeless that they should begin taking lives, they should go to Hell.
