Bank of America's Dead Drop To Rick Perry: "We Will Help You Out"
Zero Hedge ^ | 081911 | Tyler Durden

Posted on 08/19/2011 11:46:27 AM PDT by Fred

Should we be surprised, frightened, disgusted or simply say "we knew it", that in the informal mixer just after Texas Governor and Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry spoke at a Politics and Eggs breakfast in Bedford, New Hampshire, an unknown gentlemen approaches a casual Perry like an Ian Flemming character, and proceeds to dead drop the following: "Bank of America... We will help you out"... and silently moves on. At least we know now who is funding what, and whose interests potential future president Perry will be paid to defend.

I could walk up to Rick Perry at an event and say “I’m Gegnhis Khan and if you need any back-up, call me” and then walk away.

That wouldn’t make me Genghis Khan (unfortunately - I admire his way of dealing with ...... “problem” people.)

IT is crazy to read anything into this. For all we know, the same gentleman goes to events of other candidates and says the same thing. Means about as much as someone saying “let’s do lunch.”

Money in politics is largely about access. It is no guarantee that the recipient will do your bidding.

What's even weirder is that at another event, an unknown gentlemen approached a casual Perry like an Ian Flemming character, and proceeded to dead drop the following: "I am the Walrus. I am the Eggman. Koo Koo ca chew. We will help you out."

Whoa!! Almost makes me think about voting for Mitt /s.

It's more likely to be a Dem operative seeking to make an anti-Perry soundbite. I would imagine a real BoA representative would have been far more discrete.

Try to read that post again. New *Braunfels.* That’s in Texas. You know, the Great Sovereign State of Texas, once a Republic and now a donor State to pork everywhere.

Nevertheless, no matter where he works or who he works for, each American has the right to offer “help” to his candidate of choice without any implication of bribery. The people who assume illicit motives tell us more about themselves than about either of the men in the video.

Speaking of “choice, it’s obvious that there’s a boom mike over Perry’s head. If I were brilliant enough to become a muckety muck at BOA, I would offer bribes in smoke filled back rooms, not in the middle of a public event, under the boom mike.

“Who is Ian Flemming? Gee, this guy must be a bad speller if I am corretcing him.”

The creator of the James Bond series I presumed...

Just getting weirder and weirder seeing as just the other day folk were saying perry needed to be more like James Bond and less like Rambo.

All that being said I must reiterate it don’t much matter what he intends to do in office as president. The solutions to our problems cannot come from Washington D.C. but from we the people and for a time our States.

Washington D.C. Needs to be cut down, and the only way to securely do that is from the outside. Perry or anyone else for that matter can run for president & congress, but their primarily roll will be rhetorical, their 2ndary roll will be failing to stop our advance from the States.

The point is anything Washington can “opt” to give up it can and will opt to take back. It therefore must not be optional on Washington’s part.

The fact you included the Bank of America thing which has no proof or authenticity tied to it... that in itself tells me you are probably out to slander Perry... with no care or concern for fact or truth.

What a coincidence... Rick Perry also like to help illegals. Maybe that's why BoA is going to "Help him out." Because they both like illegals more than citizens.

It's more likely to be a Dem operative seeking to make an anti-Perry soundbite. I would imagine a real BoA representative would have been far more discrete.

He's no Dem operative He has been identified as James Mahoney the Director of Public Policy for the Bank of America.

Source: Bank Of America Executive To Rick Perry: "We'll Help You Out"

It's not Perry's fault the man did this, but it clearly looks bad and fits right into the crony capitalist narrative building around him. Hollywood cliche becomes reality as Bad Republican meets Bad Big Businessman.

Folks, the point of this post is, do 'we the people', want more of our hard earned taxpayer dollars thrown at the most worthless bank in the USA???

Or, are we going to elect someone with the courage to do what had to be done in the 1990s by the FDIC and move BoA into a form of receivership which should have happened in 2008???

Perry has been close to BoA for a long time... Money Trail on Perry and BoA.

Do not come at me with well Obama is worse..no friggin kidding...

So if freepers want to get the right pol then demand an answer to this question...Do not accept the lie that BoA is doing great and has plenty of reserves...

And for all you Perry operatives....address this question...
