This has to be one of the more bizarre examples of Wall Street’s domination of Congress, in this case through the office of Congressman Darrell Issa.

ThinkProgress has found that a Goldman Sachs vice president changed his name, then later went to work for Issa to coordinate his effort to thwart regulations that affect Goldman Sachs’ bottom line.

    This is has to be one of the most bizarre example of a president not leading. He has held 127 fundraisers, the market is falling and the unemployment rate is rising.

    Obama is leading us straight into a Depression, and unfortunately no one can prevent it. For all of the promise, he will end up as our worst President. I urge everyone to get ready now !

    Let me fix that for you:

    Republican obstructionism in Congress and slash and burn budgeting in Republican controlled state legislatures across the country is leading us straight into a Depression, and unfortunately no one can prevent it.

    You cannot solve a problem largely exacerbated by high unemployment by laying off thousands more. But you knew that already. To think a political party would destroy a nation just to blame the President and get him out of office is sickening. If Rick Perry wants to find treason, he need only look to his own party.

    Sorry, I don’t watch MSNBC. But maybe if you could turn off FOX you could see what is happening in the world.

    This is no surprise coming out of Issa’s office. Just wiki the guy, he has a long history of arson, larceny, and theft.
