That's what I've been saying on patnet to the obama fanclub clown brigade led by the binar. Can't somebody impeach his ass already?

Excellent report, but in 2012 Wall Street favored Romney. In other words, although the Obama administration didn't prosecute them, they expected to do even better with a Romney administration. Given the choice between Obama and Romney, voters avoided catastrophe by re-electing Obama.

We need to put up one of those WH petitions demanding the impalement of all bankers. It would get 100 million signatures in an hour.

While lemmings were too busy parading Obama, they completely missed how he was no better than Bush. Surprisingly those are the same people who forgive Obama anything and everything, thinking that he can do nothing wrong because he makes such charismatic speeches that they like.

I didn't like Romney, but I don't like Obama either. I think both were a bad choice, both were members of the inner party club.

They were the only choices because of closed primaries.
Independent voters don't have a say in the process. So the Ron Pauls' or Dennis Kusinichs' don't make it past the straw polls. And by time the straw poll comes around and you know who is who and is in the race, and have good idea of who you would vote for if you were registered Democrat or Republican, it's already too late to change your voters registration.
