Maybe but I doubt anything serious will come of that. Obama is a smart man. Smart enough to avoid entanglements such as those. I mean look at the Blagojevich case. Obama was standing in the middle of a pile of feces and he came out smelling like a rose.

No Obam is smart enough to insulate himself.

Who's John Galt.

So you would support what Bush did in starting us off going down this path?
Well, you need to either go back and search your memory or just search BWOT for my opinions on what Bush did with TARP. I supported it completely. I understood that it needed to be done, that there were dire consequence if it was not done and that this was a much bigger problem than folks were letting on.

My ONLY complaint was that there needed to be more regulation involved in the original Trance and that, I would have recommended somewhat tighter reigns to insure a good outcome [things like no jets and bonus issues and restructuring of compensation packages and no immunities from prosecution].

If I am not mistaken I was just about the only person that said that, given the trances, these guys would build up reserves and, within a year be able to rebuild the financial sector and rebuild the economy.

I even put money on it. I am up about 850% on AIG and 340% on BoA right now.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
