Goldman Sachs and bailed out banks always use the line "well, we just have the smartest people in the world working for us, etc". Well, then why did you need to be saved with government bailout? Not many regular folks saw the crisis coming either and none of the regular folks got play money in 2008/2009. Instead, we are the ones that paid. To save them?! The so-called whiz kid millionaires!
And really, seeing how President Obama surprisingly oversaw and set up Goldman Sachs to quickly return to record profits and record bonuses and belatedly coming up with some sort of "reform" after they robbed the bank and flew miles away to their new yachts; its sadly ironic that Obama is like them. A "whiz kid". He's so smart they all say. But he just isn't allowed to do what's right even though he's just so, so smart. Bush was naive. Obama is sinister. I believe when Goldman Sachs knocked on Bush's door, W just wanted some new buddies to back slap and pal around with. When Goldman came knocking to Obama, it was the same folks that paid the big bucks to get his campaign going. They paid for the Hollywood campaign, and the cheap slogans of hope and change.
We now have the same old Washington DC. Maybe worse actually. Its Chicago-style politics. And we have bigger deficits, much bigger. And the same wars and surges and defense budgets. And so now the people want to throw these new bums out of town just as fast as they came to power (well, not THAT fast, seeing the Pelosi has now held the gavel for 4 years for the Democrats in Congress). And what do we have. We have Jon Stewart saying "Return to Sanity". You mean, before we vote out corrupt, career, elite politicians we should stop and think twice and put the same self-entitled thieves back again for more. Think about this. Unemployment is worse than it was in the early days of the Obama Administration. Sure, it was trending to get worse. But it has never gotten better! And think too that in that time, Goldman Sachs and the biggest bankers have made record profits and record bonuses!
