***************************

Gregory: hey they SEC finally went after Goldman Sachs - that’s wild!

Geithner: we’re going to enact financial reform Greggers

Gregory: will you use the Goldman Sachs
scandal as an excuse to this enact a new law

Geithner: why should we - 8 million people losing their jobs and bailouts isn’t enough?

Gregory: well sure I suppose

Geithner: there you go Fluffy

Gregory: aren’t the American people really to
blame for not understanding Wall Street?

Geithner: people on Wall Street don’t understand that shit

Gregory: Can Obama guarantee his guarantees

Geithner: I guarantee we won’t offer unpopular bailouts again

Gregory: but what if they really need the money and they’re white men - then you have to give it to them

Geithner: which is why we have to stop them from taking risks and if they do we will dismember it

Gregory: Mitch McConnell says this is an
Endless Bailout bill

Geithner: even Republicans think that is fucking stupid

Gregory: will any Republicans vote for the bill?

Geithner: maybe one or two with common sense

Gregory: but no one could have prevented the financial crisis

Geithner: not true - electing someone named Bush was our first national mistake

Gregory: but what about capitalism?

Geithner: we need a Bitey SEC - one with teeth that will nom on behalf of the taxpayer

Gregory: but are you tough enough on Wall Street?

Geithner: Sure - I have written some strongly-worded tweets

Gregory: You are ruining America by attacking wonderful Americans likes Jamie Dimon!

Geithner: and people think I’m a moron Fluffy

Gregory: can America recover?

Geithner: yes but it will take 4 years

Gregory: is this a jobless recovery?

Geithner: no we’re creating jobs - some people
are even working 5 days a week

Gregory: what’s your forecast?

Geithner: I’m not an economist dancing dave

Gregory: Why would a company build a new factory?

Geithner: because we will put more teachers
in the classroom

Gregory: Foreclosures are still up!

Geithner: yes but Obama stabilized house prices which helped people feel good about the house they paid too much for

Gregory: [ grinning ] People re-default!

Geithner: we’re not going to help speculators or irresponsible borrowers

Gregory: is it over?

Geithner: oh no - we’re totally fucked

Gregory: I’m very scared by inflation

Geithner: Calm down Fluffy

Gregory: the Washington Times says Obama is unserious unless he taxes the poor

Geithner: fuck that Dave - he’s cutting taxes
on the middle class

Gregory: he raised taxes on middle class American making one million dollars a year

Geithner: the CBO said health care will reduce
the debt

Gregory: there’s debate about that

Geithner: no there isn’t stupid

Gregory: but he has to raise taxes!

Geithner: he will - on the rich

Gregory: oh noes!!!!

Geithner: suck it Fluffers

Gregory: but but but a serious person would raise taxes on the poor

Geithner: any other suggestions Gregory

Gregory: cut Medicare, Medicaid, and raise
the gas tax

Geithner: those are all great ideas - if you are a moron

[ break ]

Gregory: Marsha what about ending bailouts?

Blackburn: no the Obama bill will mean more bailouts

Gregory: how so?

Blackburn: regulating banks will mean raising
costs for regular people which is so so sad

Gregory: so what do you support?

Blackburn: Strong regulations with no control

Brownstein: actually I think people would like a
little Washington control of Wall Street

Rendell: the GOP thinks if they lie enough people
will believe it

Gregory: gee I can’t imagine why

Diaz-Balart: all this talk about reform doesn’t
affect people

Gregory: really?

Diaz-Balart: let’s not fund government - let’s fund Hispanics in small businesses

Gregory: like what

Diaz-Balart: the bodegas and the lights of
upper broadway

Gregory: forget the truth - who’s winning?

Brownstein: the GOP was in charge during the greatest crisis since the Great Depression - so naturally people believe government is the problem and we need to put the Republicans back in charge

Blackburn: Good idea

Gregory: the Democrats have to solve the problems the GOP created by raising taxes and then get voted out and the GOP will come in and we will repeat the cycle all over again

Blackburn: this election is about freedom - the American people oppose the tyranny of good health care and efficient light bulbs

Gregory: ‘Freedom’ got us an economic collapse

Blackburn: we all agree we need more oversight which I have always supported - just ‘oversight’ without ‘government’ or ‘controls’

Gregory: Politico says the Tea Party are scared and think Obama a socialist

Diaz: that is crazy - but people are sick and tired of bad things are in favor of good things

Gregory: wow

Brownstein: The GOP are winning now but people don’t really give a shit - they just want economic growth and some money in their pocket

Gregory: the Tea Party could take over a
Senate race!

Rendell: fuck that bunch of lunatics

Gregory: but people are angry about incompetent wars!

Blackburn: the Tea Party is an amoeba of people who just suddenly got really angry in 2009
about high taxes

Rendell: adios amoebas

Gregory: Michelle Bachmann who is your colleague and insane said we have a gangster government

Blackburn: those are words she said

Gregory: yes I know that - do you agree with that?

Blackburn: people are very angry about what will happen 50 years from now

Gregory: I’m just wondering if you realize that Michelle Bachmann is dangerously certifiable

Blackburn: well whenever you have a large gathering a few crazy people will show up

Gregory: she’s a Congresswoman!

Diaz-Balart: If anyone is angry it should be Hispanics - Obama hasn’t proposed immigration reform and the GOP are fuckin’ racists!

Brownstein: the Tea Party is going to drive away Hispanics

Diaz: Obama focused too much on health care

Brownstein: are you kidding Diaz? That’s pretty
lame knee jerk anti-Obama blather

Gregory: oh I think you’re going to fit well
here Jose
