Skip to comments.The Mellowing of Maxine Waters
Posted on 05/13/2013 6:59:21 PM PDT by jdsteel
OVER her 22 years in Congress, Maxine Waters has likened bank executives to gangsters, snarkily addressed them as captains of the universe and threatened to tax their companies out of business......
In the past, such grumbling might have set off Ms. Waterss famous hair-trigger temper. But with each complaint, she leaned in for more, nodding appreciatively. Weve heard they chase down silly stuff, Ms. Waters said, referring to regulators and shaking her head in disapproval. Im willing to take a hit to help lower the capital requirements, she said. She even suggested the bankers hire new lobbyists to better represent them. Influence us, Ms. Waters said softly, reminding them of her new role as the ranking Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee. Help us understand the intricacies of your business.

My take is she dumb as a post..but not as dumb as those who keep sending her back..
I figure it is just senility.
Isn’t Maxine one of the self-declarted socialists in the congress. So by all means let’s give ger a major role on the committee.
Isn’t she the one who wrote to Castro to keep a cop killer down in Cuba because she was being persecuted here?
Can’t the illegals in LA replace her with a Mexican socialist?
Maxine is dumb as dirt, as are most Democrat voters.
And as the cookie man rode the fox to the center of the river......
TREASON - continuous, pre-meditated, agenda-driven, in-your-face, media-complicit, agency-abetted, REPRESENTATIVE-ENABLED, ongoing...
FUMarxine, you TOTALITARIAN POS.
In her immortal words. The people were not rioting, they were revolting. (AfterLA riots).
No, darlin’ u r revolting!
This would turn out as bad as Charlie Rangel on the Ways and Means Committee...Oh, wait...
Isn’t Max’s husband one of those evil banksters she loves to demonize?
pit bulls and rot weillers are NEVER mellow- sure, they can appear mellow, but NEVER take you eye off them- they could and DO turn on their owners and peopel all the time
IIRC, it was Maxine Kerosene Waters who once begged,
“Oh please, Mr. Limbaugh, don’t be telling your audience how my husband and I be millionaires! Please don’t you be tellin’ it!”
This was right after Rush’s TV show aired the reality of the Rodney King police vids. 1992 I believe.
Waters’ husband is a stockholder and former director of OneUnited Bank and the bank’s executives were major contributors to her campaigns.
Yeah, ‘Mad Maxine’ has mellowed.
And I’m a Chinese jet pilot.
Waters is still commie. As for the mellowing, she just smells that way.
It never ceases to amaze and distraught me how people go into office worth a couple of hundred thousand and leave multi-millionnaires.
I too am amazed but even more so at the rank hypocrisy of people with socialistic views whose personal wealth & lifestyle is in complete contradiction to their professed ideology.
It has become so blatant that we are now accustomed to seeing extreme liberals & redistributionists on board mega yachts, sipping champagne & helicoptering off to exclusive golf courses, all the while denouncing the evils of capitalism.
