|....The sources, who represent creditors to Chrysler, say they were taken aback by the hardball tactics that the Obama administration employed to cajole them into acquiescing to plans to restructure Chrysler. One person described the administration as the most shocking "end justifies the means" group they have ever encountered. Another characterized Obama was "the most dangerous smooth talker on the planet- and I knew Kissinger." Both were voters for Obama in the last election.....|
The story at Business Insider doesn't address this but I heard an interview with one of the attorneys who represent the hedge fund that is part of the Chrysler restructuring. This man said that the Obama administration told his client that if he "didn't play ball" the Obama administration would "unleash the press corps" against him.
This is unbelievable - but not entirely a surprise.
Obama came out of nowhere, and out of the swamps of Illinois-Crook County politics. He knows how to play bare-knuckle politics. His handlers will do anything to consolidate their power base - absolutely anything.
This is just a taste of what's to come from this confused young man who shouldn't be president.
