Obama Supporters Celebrate Lehman Brothers Employees Losing Their Jobs

If there were needed any additional proof of the hatred of Obama supporters for the U.S. in general and the capitalist system in particular, it’s on display.

Over the weekend, investment bank Lehman Brothers declared bankruptcy, an historical failure of a pillar of Wall Street. Caught-up in a twisted fish net of bad investing decisions, creative accounting, stupidity, punitive laws passed by Congress that discourage investing in U.S. companies, and a financial world in which many investment “derivatives” have become so arcane as to resist any meaningful analysis, Lehman has dropped into bankruptcy.

The New York Times – one of those curious dying newspapers run by an “obscenely rich” family that spends all of its time damning the rich – was Johnny-on-the-spot with major articles expressing alleged dismay over Lehman’s failure and the tragedies of its employees, now out of work. It is the comments to these articles from Democrats – those purveyors of Love, Tolerance, and Diversity – that most catch one’s eye:

5. Jobs in the social services sector would be good too.. They could actually be helping people rather than shilling and trying to line their own pockets.

Feel the love.

These people are among Obama’s most ardent supporters. With every keystroke they demonstrate the disaster that would be an Obama presidency.
