    Tim-
    Or that Obama’s 2008 campaign received $42 million, more than any other candidate in history, from Wall Street bankers and financial insiders. Obama’s campaign raised $42.2 million from the finance, insurance and real estate sector. That was up from the $35.9 million that Bush raised for reelection in 2004.

    Obama, as a senator, also voted for the Wall Street bailout in 2008.

    Yep, he's been Wall Streets and the banks biggest buddy, as millions of Americans deal with chronic unemployment.

    Now he won't prosecute banks.

    This guy is Obama's protege.
    He should lose his job and possibly be imprisoned, for criminal negligence in the very least.

    Re: Holder: Banks May Be Too Large to Prosecute

    Does anyone understand how ridiculous this **** is?

    Prosecute banks?

    For what exactly? for the federal government using banks like puppets?

    This administration is truly astounding...

    These progressive idiots manifest policies and when they don't work they point fingers while continuing to believe they know what's right.

    It's like a little kid redundantly sticking his finger in a light socket thinking thinking there is going to be a different outcome if he/she tries it again - then blaming the light socket for not giving the desired outcome.

    That is unless Holders supplying them with thousands of fully automatic weapons and then you pipe down. Even when a US border guard loses his life.

    Your rage subsides and you scoff at something that has been proven, not something thats part of a bankrupt narrative.

    Again, what power would holder have over the BRITISH BANK HSBC ? Holder who refuuses to be accountable for the gun running scam ?

    What else are the mean ole banks doing ?
    Just a quick question. When the hell will you ever be able to stick to a topic without rambling into an alternate universe?

    Gregg Lippman was the head of CDO trading at Deutsche bank. He shorted mortgage security products and called them in "crap" in internal emails at the same time Deutsche Bank was selling the same products to clients. That is fraud and should have been prosecuted. The only difficultly with Holder is in trying to determine whether his incompetence is greater than his corruption.

    When will people learn that democrats kiss the asses of businesses too?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Probably not until after the far-right party stops labeling the center-right party as "liberal".

    But you have these positions all staked out and classified correctly, including 'slightly liberal', huh?

    It's not rambling, its the continuous expose of a corrupt ideology, and its empty narratives.

    I wouldn't say a word if not for the massive amount of ammo you guys offer up.

    What's even more troubling is the fact you see these two things as isolated and unattached
