    Also notwithstanding, Deval Patrick, Harold Ford, Jr., Steven Rattner, Ed Rendel, Lannie Davis, and more. It’s great strategy. Obama needs to keep it up.

    • You need to read a book called “The Quants” by Scott Patterson. It’s about the hedge funds managers, private equity people would nearly destroyed the stock market in 2008. These guys are all math whizzes would thought they could predict the market 100% of the time and failed miserably in 2008. They don’t make anything but money and couldn’t care abouta ny business that didn’t turn a high profit. The bottom line was the only thing important to them. So unless you are in the 1% category you mean nothiing to them yet you are against having stron regulations in the stock market. JPM Chase just lost 3 Billion dollars on credit default swaps.

        It was 2 billion, but who’s quibbling. Just happened to be 0.1% of their net worth. Really time to get excited. For comparison, check out Obama’s record as an equity fund manager with our money. Everything’s easier when you are spending and risking someone else’s money.

    In this country, at present, Big Business is 90% supported by taxpayers, consumers and employees in a manner unheard of in a world of ethics and principles. How many of these Uber Businesses would have failed years ago if not for help from taxpayers and the infusion of tax subsidies?
