First Puff Piece is Out on Mario Draghi

He won't officially takeover as president of the European Central Bank until November, but the puff pieces can't wait. Bankster puppet, Mario Draghi, must be puffed up now. Of course, in such puff pieces there will only be deeply buried mention that he was vice chairman and managing director of Goldman Sachs International and a member of the Goldman firm-wide management committee. WaPo doesn't mention it until paragraph 13 of a new puff piece. Instead, we learn in paragraph 3, that he is called "Super Mario" by the European press.

Here's WaPo telling us what a difficult challenge this will be for Super Mario (but hinting he is the man to do the job).:
The future of Europe will soon be in the hands of a dapper, 63-year-old Italian economist with a name reminiscent of a James Bond villain and with long experience in the delicate art of economic diplomacy.

Mario Draghi is set to take office as president of the European Central Bank in November, making him, along with the Federal Reserve’s Ben S. Bernanke, one of the world’s two most powerful central bankers. He is inheriting an extraordinarily difficult situation, taking control in the midst of a debt crisis, with little time to learn on the job.

The European media refers to Draghi as “Super Mario” for his energetic style. The question is whether he can live up to the nickname...

Draghi has won respect among central bankers on both sides of the Atlantic, who view him as a thoughtful participant in international discussions with a knack for guiding groups toward agreement.
Puhleez, the man knows how to talk elitist code and get himself into powerful positions, beginning and end of story. He will only stay there as long as he serves the banksters.



  1. he is set to become ECB president, not World Bank president, right?

  2. >with long experience in the delicate art of economic diplomacy.

    Economic diplomacy?!?!? This has to be a joke.

  3. @Anonymous 4:09

    Correct. ECB.
