Car Czar Rattner Is All About Obama’s Plea For All Americans To Cut Back!
” ALL” Unless you work for the Government.
From the New York Post:
CAR CZAR STEVEN RATTNER RIDES OVER VINEYARD
May 18, 2009 —
STEVEN Rattner, the auto industry adviser to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, is flagrantly thumbing his nose at President Obama‘s call for Americans to make sacrifices in the collapsing economy.
Rattner is moving full-speed ahead with construction of a lavish, $15 million summer home in the Lambert’s Cove area of West Tisbury on Martha’s Vineyard — a palatial mansion he’s had in the works since 2006. It’s caused a furor among wealthy Vineyard residents, who’ve called the planned 15,500-square-foot project far too big and gaudy, The Post’s Mark DeCambre reports.
Nonetheless, the town’s Land Use Planning Committee greenlighted the scheme, which involves transporting an existing building to an adjoining larger property on Obed Daggett Road. Adding to the controversy, the mansion is close to a sacred Native American burial ground protected by a permanent preservation restriction, according to the Martha’s Vineyard Times.
Rattner has been tough on banks and hedge-fund managers unwilling to take haircuts on stakes they own in failing car companies. Yet Rattner, his wife, Maureen White, the former national finance chair for the Democratic Party, and their four children enjoy plush lifestyles because of the success of his Quadrangle Group hedge fund, which manages Mayor Bloomberg‘s $16 billion fortune. His fund has been under scrutiny in a pension scandal being probed by state Attorney General Andrew Cuomo.
Rattner, 56, who earned more than $100 million from Quadrangle and lives in a huge apartment on Fifth Avenue, donated millions to the campaigns of Hillary Clinton, Al Gore and John Kerry. But when it became apparent that Obama’s presidential run had legs, he hitched his wagon to him. A representative for Rattner in Washington had no comment.
Oh, to have friends In high places..Right! I bet after Michelle ‘ Wonder? Bra’ Obama see’s this new home she and hubby will be picking out the new kitchen tile out for there new “crib”.
Port officials believe someone on Rucker Hill is whacking golf balls down the hill onto port property, endangering dozens of workers and millions of dollars worth of equipment and cargo.
“We’re trying to use any means possible to stop it, Pointing video surveillance cameras toward the likely source is an appropriate use of the equipment, port officials say.
The cameras were paid for, along with fencing and other security equipment, with $2.3 million in grants from the Department of Homeland Security following the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
Before the attacks, the Everett port had open terminals and only minimal security. People who live in the surrounding neighborhoods often would walk down and drop crab pots off piers that are now blocked by tall cyclone fences topped with razor wire. Golf balls have been raining on the port’s Pacific Terminal for several months. However, a police report wasn’t filed until this week when 18 golf balls over the span of two days were found near stacks of shipping containers.
“It’s been going on for a while, but it’s been getting a lot worse the last couple of days,” port spokeswoman Lisa Lefeber said.
Dock superintendent Bob Porter has been shagging balls from the Rucker Hill golfer for months. He keeps a box of them in his office near Pier 1.
“We have to put a stop to it,” Porter said.
John Nostrom lives near a grassy overlook on Warren Avenue. On two instances, in recent years, he has seen young men pull up to the spot, haul out their drivers, then tee off. The spot is a little more than 200 yards from the place where balls are being found.
LOL..Driver, 200 yards…. I did it with a 4 Iron!!
Is this not a local Authority problem? Don’t they have those huge net fences in Everett ? Golf balls a Clear and Present Danger!
Where will Joe Go?
Gaffer Joe must have got drunk at the Gridiron Club dinner in Washington, an annual event where powerful politicians and media elite get a chance to cozy up to one another. The Vice President revealed the existence and location of a super secret bunker the former Vice president used after the 9/11 attacks. The bunker is as we now know located on the old Navel Observatory which is now the home of the vice president.
Talk about transparency!! I could only guess that VP Biden has full faith in the great ‘one’s’ ability to handle the terrorist and other evil elements of the world. Or Joe will have to hide in his closet at the VP mansion!
