Resign, or Go Commit Suicide, not a bad idea...

Well it looks like the outrage from the public and politicians over the $165M in bonuses paid out to firm's executives is blowing back on the president and his initiatives. That is what many media outlets are reporting, including The Washington Post.

WAPO reports President Barack Obama's apparent inability to block executive bonuses at insurance giant AIG has dealt a sharp blow to his young administration and is threatening to
derail both public and congressional support for his ambitious political agenda.

Get this,
Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) suggested in a radio interview that AIG executives ought to "
follow the Japanses model . . . resign or commit suicide."

An aide later explained he does not actually want executives to kill themselves.

AAPP: AIG executives ought to "follow the Japanese model. . . resign, or go commit suicide."

Sounds like something both AIG Executives and some of our political leaders
should follow... Sen. Grassley suggestions.

What do you think?
