Beau Biden’s Lackluster Career as Attorney General: Just Say Not to Beau 2016
October 20, 2014
VP of the United States Joe Biden’s son (not the entitled coke snorting one kicked out of the Navy Reserves after one month-the other son), the unimpressive Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, announced he’ll run for Governor in 2016. The State of Delaware page proudly boasts that AG Biden has secured a total of $225 million from the mortgage crisis. That certainly sounds impressive doesn’t it?
Beau Biden’s held his current position of Delaware Attorney General for eight years.
Thanks to a group of extraordinary professionals at the Department of Justice and their tireless work–from protecting our children and getting criminals off the streets, to holding more accountable those responsible for the housing crisis–I believe we have made Delaware a better place to live and to raise a family.
I’m proud of the work we’ve accomplished.
What? No list of accomplishments over the last eight years? Well, that’s inconsistent and contradictory language to action for someone who plans on running for Governor in 2016. People in politics, executives or startup founders never miss an opportunity to highlight their achievements, unless they’re looking to distance themselves from unethical or illegal activity or perhaps in Beau Biden’s case perhaps a combination coupled with the fact that there aren’t any real actual achievements in his eight years as Attorney General.
Recovering $225 million over eight years may sound impressive but this looks much more like allowing known two corrupt entities (banking and government) to negotiate on behalf of “The People” behind closed doors. The banking industry (not unlike the pharma and device or automotive industry) and the government have to earn back the trust of the American people and when deals are done behind closed doors with no transparency, well, that does (or at least it should) instill the opposite of trust. Biden’s recovery for the State of Delaware should be in the billions not hundreds of millions.
You don’t have a right to know everything in a separation-of-powers government, my friend. That is the difference between a parliamentary government and a separation-of-powers government,” Norton claimed during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing. Eleanor Horton, non-voting congressional member of District of Columbia.
That certainly sounds like “rarely challenged and prefer to work that way,” and again that comes from both sides of the aisle.
We all need to ask our Attorney Generals where these millions and billions they collect from the likes of Johnson & Johnson, Toyota, GM, and Bank of America are going, and to “The People,” is not an answer. It’s a payday for the government (so why would they want to fix this system?) and it’s a get out of jail free card for corrupt corporations and “We The People,” keep footing the bill. We deserve the right to know where exactly that money is allocated. US State’s Attorneys need to force accountability from the corrupt companies and that starts by putting executives behind bars. This “take what we can get attitude” or feal of a courtroom loss is no longer acceptable. “We The People” want to see these felons of the pharma, automotive and banking industry, become convicted felons.
