Richard “AIG” Holbrooke

From Mickey Kaus:

Obama’s special envoy Richard Holbrooke served on A.I.G.’s board when the company a) went “over a cliff,” and b) approved the now-controversial bonuses. But he’ll survive. It’s not like he also got special loan deals from Countrywide as a “Friend of Angelo.” …. Oh, wait! … I don’t want to know where Holbrooke was when Enron was going down. … P.S.: Will the White House now have to force three perfectly well-qualified assistant secretaries to withdraw for triviial resume blemishes in order to make up for keeping Holbrooke on? …  [Can we say this is “strike three” if you count each Countrywide loan separately?–ed If you count each Countrywide loan separately it’s strike six.]

    Angelo, you gave your WORD ! ! !
    By praetorian5

    After the murder of our oldest son and the subsequent financial firestorm that ended in us losing our home to foreclosure,(and this was AFTER, a plan was worked out with C-wide to come current), I spoke with Mr. Mozilo, PERSONALLY, on the phone, at his office…..and the man assured me that although they sold my home illegally, he would personally see to it that we got our home back. Yeah, right! In a pig’s eye. They assigned us a supposed in-house attorney? (somewhere in Santa Monica), who then in turn immediately sent us an unlawful detainer. I immediately filed suit against C-wide and the U/D was rescinded. We asked where to send the pmts and how much until the modification was complete. The attorney told us to hold onto the funds for the initial pmt on the mod, so we did. The mod was introduced in Sep,’08 and was tiered, putting us in a worse situation than we could imagine. Needless to say, we rejected it. Hell, The numbers weren’t even consistent from one page to the next. Anyway, They sought a demurer on the complaint, seven months after it was filed, (isn’t that kind of LATE?), citing non-payment, AFTER they told us to hold the payment until the ink was dry on the modification, and the #@%K&%* judge granted it, without allowing me to speak because although I have been married to my wife for 31 years and the home was purchased with my G.I. bill, and the fact that the title is in her name, I am not a lawyer. Now I have to refile. We are tired. This is the end of our American dream. My question is this….and it is for Mr. Mozilo…….were you just blowing me off when you PROMISED my family we would get our home back, that was taken unethically, and illegally from us? Or were you just passing the buck to the mysterious Dan Whitehead? OR……did you really mean what you said, and this is just some rogue attorney out to put another feather in his cap? My father always told his sons that a MAN’S word is his bond and right now your word is about as good as waterbased mucilage. Mr Mozilo……….WHY?
