Another guy to bow down to

Even after losing 4.6 percent of his personal wealth in the past year, Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, 54, Citigroup Inc.’s largest individual investor, has been ranked the richest Saudi national by Arabian Business.

Alwaleed’s assets are valued at $16.3 billion, compared with $17.1 billion last year. Forbes magazine estimated he was worth $13.3 billion in March, ranking him 22nd among the world’s billionaires, Bloomberg News reports.

Prince Alwaleed earned a bachelor’s degree from Menlo College near San Francisco.

Here is President Obama greeting Saudi King Abdullah last April.

    The Saudis are grateful to have someone with deep roots in the Muslim faith and culture leading an America that is increasingly dependent on mid-Eastern oil and financial largess. Barack Obama is their man. And all of the American politicians who are keeping us dependent of foreign oil suppliers are also implicated in our decline. We are being kept from drilling our own oil by the global warming alarmists, John McCain among them.

    This is the wake-up call line:
    “Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, 54, Citigroup Inc.’s largest individual investor..”

    What the hell are we thinking in this country? We must be nuts!!! Are our elected representatives alseep at the wheel? This president has shown us what he is about, but don’t we still have some sane people who care about this country doing anything but gearing up for their next elections?

    I used to get riled when I heard the refrain of “throw the bums out…don’t re-elect any incumbents…”

    Now I will tell you that there isn’t anyone in my estimation worthy of being re-elected. They represent their own interests, which is keeping their jobs and their base of power. They won’t get it again with my help!
