Team Obama Tells Citibank You’re Making Me Look Bad

 Obama called Citigroup because this is public news now and the public is pissed… Considering Obama is trying to get the $800+ billion stimulus package passed and is planning on pushing through more spending in the near future for bailouts of banks and knows that in order to push that through this needs to be squashed…

I will be impressed when Obama does something like this before it becomes public knowledge… This is nothing more than part of the show to cover Obama’s ass…

Change You Can Believe In!

The high-flying execs at Citigroup caved under pressure from President Obama and decided today to abandon plans for a luxurious new $50 million corporate jet from France.

The bank used TARP funds to purchase a new corporate jet for executives.

The decision came 24 hours after the banking giant, which was rescued by a $45 billion taxpayer lifeline, defended buying the state-of-the-art Dassault Falcon 7X — one of nine to be flying in U.S. skies — as a smart business deal.

The jet, the epitome of corporate prestige and privilege, can carry 12 passengers in elegant comfort.

ABC News has learned that on Monday officials of the Obama administration called Citigroup about the company’s new $50 million corporate jet and told execs to “fix it.”
