Jamie Dimon fights back against UK Banker Bonus Tax

Jamie was one of our picks for Treasury Secretary to replace the tax challenged Timmeh (see our March post). Plus since we are shoveling money into,  and making all our policy based on,  protecting the banks, why not have someone with actual private sector banking experience?! Plus Jamie is actually, you know, SUCCESSFUL!

Jamie talks reality to Alistair Darling. JPMChase is about to enter a ginormous HQ on Canary Wharf in London. Maybe the ingenius Banker Bonus Tax that Gordon Brown and Alistair Darling have floated is NOT the best way to keep London as the European center of trading….

Yay Hill. PS CIA was called in by State (who does NOT do intelligence BTW) and personally interviewed the terrorists father. Any failure is not State’s ‘fault’. It is an intelligence failure.

Sarah came in as Most Admired Woman too (second)!! two of my fave ladies 🙂 Back to the good news for HRC:

Politico has it, this is the fourth poll in two months that consistently shows Hill’s approval high and rising, she has shed the ‘polarizing’ label Team Obama and the lamestream media attached to her in 07-08. She has done this by working working working. Like she did in the Senate, she is doing it as SoS. I wish to Gawd she were POTUS.

Politico:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the most admired woman in America, barely edging out former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, according to a Gallup poll out Wednesday.

When Gallup asked 1,025 adults nationwide to name the woman they admire most, 16 percent picked Clinton.

…Clinton has been named most admired woman 14 times by the poll, going back to her time as first lady. Only former First Lady Laura Bush in 2001 and Mother Teresa in 1995 and 1996 have been able to knock Clinton from her perch, though Palin came close….
