  •  Ok, are you just winding me up, (0+ / 0-)

    or are you actually familiar with the Obama Administration's record on financial crime?

    •  I'm (0+ / 0-)

      It's a pretty weak one but it is certainly not what you pretend it is

      •  By this point in the S&L crisis, (5+ / 0-)

        HW Bush, no friend to the common man, had found 1,000 bankers to prosecute.

        Obama has found 10, all from the same firm.

        Obama's response:

        "Well, first on the issue of prosecutions on Wall Street, one of the biggest problems about the collapse of Lehmans and the subsequent financial crisis and the whole subprime lending fiasco is that a lot of that stuff wasn’t necessarily illegal, it was just immoral or inappropriate or reckless…"

        That's not "weak."  It's "hardcore Class Warrior for the 1%."

        •  In the President's defense (0+ / 0-)

          I really don't think it's his call.

          Things have changed since daddy Bush days. I mean, check out the folks at the helm in the Treasury and Defense departments. It's a whole different game, now.

            and the President has nothing to do with either of those.

            •  I seriously doubt it. (0+ / 0-)

              My Pollyanna wore off.
