    ... viewed as a villain in history...  But I have to say, Greenspan and the hotshot financial CEOs should be regarded as villains as well.

    Any sycophant subscribing to Randian principles (as a purist or out because it suits them in their greed) has done a horrible and reprehensible thing.

    •  the most reprehensible thing, is how they are all (3+ / 0-)

      getting away with this 'total cover up' and how President Obama is just standing by and not speaking up.

      His silence is deafening.

      All of those CEOs would be bankrupt if the government hadn't bailed them out.

          We're all on the hook for our banks' debts. The bank bailout just made a big problem today a gigantic problem tomorrow. Oh, and allowed rich bankers to not go bankrupt when they should have.

          •  Rich banker go bankrupt??? (0+ / 0-)

            More like banks... the rich guys could just walk away with the millions they have already pilfered. The bankers were never in danger... the banks, the companies that rely on them and have money invested in them, the people working at said companies... no sir... there was a lot at stake.

            I just wish that the approach was to bail out the banks from the bottom (by infusing cash by backstopping failing loans via resetting the mortgages as standard loans with fixed rates.  Banks would have gotten their money (albeit with a smaller profit margin) and people would have kept their houses.
