Michael Moore to Obama: ‘Show some guts,’ arrest S&P head

By Victor Morton

The Washington Times

12:56 p.m., Monday, August 8, 2011

Liberal firebrand Michael Moore called on President Obama to respond to the U.S. credit downgrade by arresting the leaders of the credit-ratings agencies.

On his Twitter feed Monday, the Oscar-winning film director also blamed the 2008 economic collapse on Standard & Poor's — apparently because it and other credit-ratings agencies did not downgrade mortgage-based bonds, which encouraged the housing bubble and let it spread throughout the economy.

"Pres Obama, show some guts & arrest the CEO of Standard & Poors. These criminals brought down the economy in 2008& now they will do it again," Mr. Moore wrote.

Standard & Poor's, one of three key debt agencies, stripped the U.S. federal government of its AAA status Friday night and reduced it to AA+ for the first time in the nation's history.

Mr. Moore went on to note that the "owners of S&P are old Bush family friends," continuing a theme he has developed through several films about capitalism as essentially a crony system for the rich and Wall Street, especially the Bush family.

He went on to link approvingly to an article last week in the Guardian, a left-wing British newspaper, about a police raid in Milan against the offices of S&P and fellow ratings agency Moody's. Italian police were searching for evidence on whether the rating agencies, in the words of a local prosecutor, "respect regulations as they carry out their work".

"Here's how they roll in Italy when it comes to these bastards," Mr. Moore cheered.

Mr. Moore did not note that Italy's government is led by a conservative prime minister, Silvio Berlusconi, a business tycoon who also has long been accused by his country's liberals and leftists of overseeing and benefiting from a system of crony capitalism.


Yup, just go out and arrest them.

Standard & Poor's is owned by The McGraw-Hill Companies.

McGraw-Hill is a public company listed on the NYSE @ MHP.

The largest owners are pension funds, mutual funds & institutional investors.
Didn't see any individuals listed among the largest shareholder.

Huh. "Just go out an arrest them."

Your buddy Castro would be proud, Super Chunk. And you reasons why are thoughtful and flawless, as usual. :roll:

If I want a credible opinion from Michael Moore I'll ask him what's the best value meal at McDonalds or which doughnuts are the best at Krispy Kreme, not anything about economic policy. :roll:

Michael Moore is an idiot and a pompous ass who make propaganda films. Everything that he touches advances his propensity for double speak. That being said S&P really have some nerve chastizing the US. Weren't the same ones that gave AAA ratings to all those toxic assets in the mortgage collapse?

I'm so surprised someone has not assassinated him yet.

We can dream though, I guess?

Gravy and Krispy Kreme would spill out of him, if he were to be pierced. Tsunamis all around the globe!

Yes, but only because of global warming. In bygone eras there would just be a glob of yellow fat, solidified at room temperature.

Yep.

People like that (Moore) are intellectually bankrupt Fascists that want to control everyone else and are willing to say or do anything to achieve it like make propaganda films right before elections.

Quite common among the LeWing-Nutters.

I'm still waiting for Obama's new internal armed force (aka Gestapo) to be created. I guess he's not as confident as he used to be. :lol:
