And, if the fundamentals of the economy weren't strong we would be in much MUCH bigger trouble than we are. Of course, the government can still wreck it.

There are problems with the financial sectors, but the sky is not falling. Capitalism chugs on. Sorry.

Makes nice sound bite for Obama, but that's about all it is.

some indictments will be coming down. Raines at least needs to be sent to the hoosegow. I guess the Congressmen and Senators can't be charged.

IMO, anyone who knows about this and still votes for Obama needs to have his head examined.

Do you suppose that if Obama gets in he will appoint Raines to some position like Secretary of the Treasury?
