Chutzpah: Client Nine Weighs in on AIG, the Company He Set Out to Destroy

By Debbie Schlussel
If you were an attorney general and then a governor–who moralized against everyone else, tried to destroy companies, and then got caught being, well, not so moral–you’d think you’d have some shame and disappear from public life or comment.
But not Client 9. Remember him?
That’s right. Eliot Spitzer–the man who helped put AIG in the place where it is today, through huge government interference in the wrong ways–is weighing in.
Yup, him again. He’s BAAAAAACK.


No Shame: Client Nine, Eliot Spitzer, Weighs in on AIG

Talk about chutzpah. That’s an area of the peanut gallery we really don’t need to hear from . . . unless he’s providing similarly lecherous men tips on the best call girl outfits.
In these hard economic times, he apparently mistakes what it means to be an advocate for “working” women.
This guy repeatedly sought the headlines for harassing these companies that are now in deep trouble. Yet, he didn’t catch or stop any of the problems that were festering. He made them fester and, in many cases helped create them.
Make no mistake: Eliot Spitzer’s advice is not part of the solution. It was part of the problem.

Eliot Spitzer? Our first Jewish president? (It was in his dreams–besides that other stuff.)

Politicians and prostitutes both make money screwing the public. When the hookers do it, the public at least have a choice in the matter.

Well, Marion Barry was re-elected in Washington D.C.; maybe Spitzer thinks anger over the bailouts will trump his immoral behavior in the eyes of the voters. He never wanted to resign in the first place.
Blago is writing a book & with the tax increase now being proposed in Illinois now, he might re-emerge. Doesn’t take much for these crooks.
Bill Clinton is the model for all of them.
There is a real vacuum in politics today; people like Spitzer sense it. Leadership is so weak and inept that the time is ripe for all types of demagogues.

Eliot Spitzer is no credit as a Jew or as a human being. Its like being lectured to by Tony Soprano on the ethics of being a law-abiding citizen. But there’s a difference between Spitzer and the fictional mob boss. The wiseguy doesn’t pretend to be a good person and get away with it. People know their own deeds all too well. Client No 9 avoids acknowledging his own shortcomings. Shanda? Not in an age when people no longer feel remorse for having committed a sin before G-d.

When a majority of Congress voted for the largest spending bill in history without reading it, or having constitutional authority to do so, they became traitors and enemies of the people along with Mr.Soetoro aka Obama who signed it. They spit in the peoples face and on their oaths of office, defied our constitution and openly declared war on the American people by betraying our country to a Cabal of Communists, Fascists and the criminal families.
Elliot Spitzer should have been prosecuted and thrown in jail not just the loss of his position.
Our Federal Government has been taken over decades ago by a Criminal Cabal of Traitors and no longer exists as a legal and constitutionally subservient entity of the Constitution, individual States and the Sovereign People.

I do not need Elliot Spitzer to tell me that we are being screwed, I already know it.

Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer, who once prosecuted American International Group for accounting fraud, criticized a federal bailout of the insurance giant yesterday as giving millions of dollars to undeserving banks.
He said the bailout architects – including Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner – should submit to questioning by Congress about their actions last year.
Spitzer also downplayed the controversy over bonuses paid to AIG executives, saying that, more importantly, the company had been used as a “conduit” to steer additional federal dollars to Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, JPMorgan Chase and others when they already were getting help.
“Why is taxpayer money going through AIG to these very large investment banks that are sitting on vast sums of cash … that is not being used as it should be used for the sorts of stimulus investments that could actually get our economy going?” Spitzer told WNYC radio in Manhattan. AIG has received $173 billion so far
What the hell does his private life have to do with what’s going on in the economy??? i literally SLAVED @ the law firm that begat him…[they actually T”OLD ME my job description was SLAVE]…but when it comes to the AIG fiasco, he was always on point!
i remember a certain David in the bible who wasn’t ALWAYS the pillar of morality…..

Spitzer is a pervert. You’d think he’d know to keep his piehole shut.
He’s kind of rushing his rehabilitation and reentry, isn’t he?

Why doesn’t this sick, demented bastard just DROP DEAD?!

Spitzer all for “working women”? I guess it is not a “shock” that he is for “working women” just like the role that Julia Roberts played in “Pretty Woman”.
Nuff said.

Good afternoon. I don’t believe in intuition. When you get sudden flashes of perception, it is just the brain working faster than usual. But you’ve been getting ready to know it for a long time, and when it comes, you feel you’ve known it always. Help me! I find sites on the topic: Online brokerage industry in canada. I found only this – online brokerage banking. Online brokerage, find the penny but invest the challenge to boycott advertising. Market the online brokers and almost consider to visit what the people are leading about the regard, online brokerage. Thanks for the help :o, Penda from Panama.
