4. Basically troubling is that big announcements like TARP also the EU bailout of 1 tril was made during a Mercury retrogade period which is always tricky and never turns out as many have thought - remember Paulson turned TARP into a completely different animal.
More troubling is these obscure pattern of Obama that he seems to be a puppet of Jewish interest as was Clinton and the DEMS are in general . The announcement of a supreme court nominee today shows again Obama's elitist approach and obscure loyalty to Harvard which is not what I am going for actually. Rather that she has some points in here background which is these days very questionable a connection to Goldman and to Summers both are afflicting and disqualify her for this particular job. Summers recommended her as Dean for Harvard and Elena Kagan worked for Goldman as Global Markets Institute council member from 2005-8 (that is too much Goldman for my taste).
Jewish readers might forgive me but the fact that she adds Jewish momentum is too much as the small population of Jews in the USA of under 2% have a disproportionate high influence in DC anyway and in these case in the Supreme Court. The supreme court should reflect the US populations ethnic weighting to a high degree and be more heterogen in academia background - Harvard and Princeton is not the USA.
She would also be the eighth Jewish justice in United States history and the third on the current bench.
Plus she might be a still in the delicate position of a closet lesbian - not that a lesbian per se would be wrong if she admitted that she were but the case that she does not admit if she is might make her vulnerable to get influenced in inappropriate ways.
The Obama administration charged CBS News with being out of line Thursday for suggesting that possible Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan is out of the closet. She isn't, according to a White House official, suggesting that a rumor campaign was being waged to trip up a potential Court candidacy.
In a post for CBS written by Ben Domenech, who is also editor of The New Ledger, Kagan is described as President Barack Obama's most likely choice. She's also described as potentially the "first openly gay justice."
Domenech later added an addendum stating, "I have to correct my text here to say that Kagan is apparently still closeted -- odd, because her female partner is rather well known in Harvard circles."
Then CBSNews.com added an editor's note confirming, "A White House spokesperson said that Domenech's reference to Ms. Kagan as gay is innaccurate."
CBS initially refused to pull the posting, prompting Anita Dunn, a former White House communications director who is working with the administration on the high court vacancy, to say: "The fact that they've chosen to become enablers of people posting lies on their site tells us where the journalistic standards of CBS are in 2010." She said the network was giving a platform to a blogger "with a history of plagiarism" who was "applying old stereotypes to single women with successful careers."
Domenech has since issued a public apology to Kagen "if she is offended at all by my repetition of a Harvard rumor in a speculative blog post."
The Post also points out that, "Most major news organizations have policies against 'outing' gays or reporting on the sex lives of public officials unless they are related to their public duties."
