"First, could you explain what you did in 2008 for Citi that warranted payment to you of close to $1 million, most of which was a bonus. Second, what was it about your performance that merited your bonus from a company that was being propped up by taxpayer money and are there any records of your performance assessment - or are there any assessments of your performance. Third, your employment agreement included a clause stating that 'your guaranteed incentive and retention award' would not be paid upon exit from Citigroup but there was an exception that you would receive that compensation 'as a result of your acceptance of a full time high level position with the United States Government or a regulatory body.' Now is this exception consistent with President Obama's efforts to 'close the revolving door' that carries special interest influence in and out of the government?"
You see, Mr. Smith, some of us don't like Obama any better than you do. But we pick issues that continue on a day to day basis in a reflection of past policy that goes back to at least to the 1870s, if not the beginning of time, as opposed to a single event in an attempt to to target a specific, quite disposible individual that simply serves as a mouthpiece. In fact, I would consider yours and your friends' thing as an obessesion, only to be fortified in textbook fashion <random explanation> when challenged.
