Uh, guys ... pay attention. WE HAVE A NEW PRESIDENT NOW. Bush screwed up a lot of stuff, but the new guy is doing infinitely more harm in virtually every aspect.

My magic front-end immobilizer is in full effect. I didn't even see this post! Rolling Eyes

Do you actually want those guys at the SEC who watch porn to be warching your money? They missed Madoff and GS.

How about Geitner who can't use Turbo Tax?

Look who started the new "Chicago Carbon exchange. Their money is in, and they're just waiting for the Obama paycheck.

Cap and tax, Healthcare, SEC, it doesn't matter. They all have their hands in the cookie jar.


The government fails its people most consistently, when the administration is actively participating in deconstructing government.

Pay attention to how the SEC was staffed and funded under GWB.

sorry brah, wrong again. First of all if Obama and his policies were as bad as you claim, the market would NOT be performing as it is, it just wouldnt, no way. Saying "Bush screwed up a lot of stuff" is like saying the Gorge gets windy from time to time.
Bard, you are correct on your assessment of the Bush SEC under Cox, and Pitt, and Donaldson, pure incompetence. Mary Shapiro, with the help of Art Levitt is a huge upgrade. And I actually think Geithner is doing a great job at Treasury. His program of direct equity investment into the banks, followed by stress tests turned this whole thing around.

Good point . A friend of mine who is big wig at the GAO, told me of the pushback they got when they recommended at 45% increase in the SEC budget from the Bush Administration. Bush had massive disregard for the SEC. Basel II, leverage limits, uptick rule, HF regulation, the list goes on and on and on and on. Crazy shit that I can see from my little perch, that was ignored from the Bush SEC.
