This just in...

Dear Mark:

Tuesday, January 19, 2010 -- Earlier today, Paul Kanjorski was quoted in The Times-Tribune as saying that “[i]t is vitally important now that we show the American people that we are having success on Main Street as well as Wall Street.”

Paul Kanjorski continues to demonstrate just how out of touch he is with his district. People in PA-11 continue to struggle through the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. People are afraid of losing their jobs, small business profits are down, unemployment is up and Paul Kanjorski continues to focus on protecting his Wall Street friends.

When it comes to legislation, the devils are in the details. Paul Kanjorski would like us to believe that he is fighting Wall Street, but don’t take the bait. He has raised more money from Wall Street than any other member of Congress. Wall Street doesn’t fund its enemies, they fund their friends. Don’t be fooled.

Support Corey O’Brien for Congress. If you want to end our commitment to Wall Street and replace it with a commitment to rebuilding Main Street, visit

My turn...

I'll take no issue with any of that.

And I see Uncle Paulie Kanjo thinks it's a marvelous idea to villainize, I mean, punish Wall Street and the TARP banks by way of extra taxation. Meanwhile, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the institutions that more or less caused the near economic collapse by way of sub-prime mortgages continue their pre-crash practices unabated.

And the message?

Private sector bad, public sector good.

In other words, yet another unavoidable signal to the private sector to batten down the hatches and wait out the economic storm of uncertainty that is the Obama Administraion. It's become patently obvious that Obama should have taken Economics 101 back in the day when he was studying the works of anti-capitalist radicals.


P.S.--It's the economy, stupid.
