    And don't let those damn pesky facts enter the conversation;  We need a ... fact-free zone... for feel-good comfort stories.

    •  So true. "Settlement" is the problem not solution. (2+ / 0-)

      The $28B "settlement" is actually the problem.  Obama is waving it around like a trophy when it is more of a red flag for 99% of Americans who have seen Wall St get $1T in help, no regulation, no prosecution, same crooks back in the high life while rest of America is still digging of the crater.

      The settlement is emblematic of the last four years and it is going to make 99% of voters angry vs. 0.01% it helps.

    •  ironic for you to mention "pesky facts" (9+ / 0-)

      after your claim about the mortgage settlement letting the banks off the hook. The mortgage settlement expressly said the settlement did not relieve them of criminal liability.

      a fact-free zone indeed, for feel-bad stories.

      If you're going to take a crap in someone's diary, at least do so with some facts, and not a bunch of bullshit, mmmkkk??
