    For all your complans about the GHW Bush administration's handling of the S+L crisis, it is still clear that the Bush administration did more to prosecute bank fraud than has the Obama administration.

    Where is the congressional investigation on the bullshit job the Obama administration is doing?

    See that: there is never an intellectual cop around when you need one!!!

    •  no it's not clear at all (0+ / 0-)

      The same kind of regional and small time bank fraud prosecute by Bush was and is prosecuted by Obama. Take a look at DOJ press releases on convictions. You should take a look at how Bush's DOJ prosecuted the CEO of Continental Illinois- not at all. The S&L crisis took place in a thousand regional and community banks, the 2008 crisis was at the heart of power.

      self-appointed intellectual cop
