    If you knew anything substantial about the culture of places like Harvard and University of Chicago where he studied and taught, respectively, then you would understand why he was able to interact with people of different political backgrounds and perspectives. Those are academic environments where liberals and conservatives, "commies" and capitalists, etc. enjoy talking about all sorts of ideas.

    I can assure you that many of the most conservative people at those schools have interacted with these "commies, domestic terrorists, black liberation theologian's, radicals, socialists and Union thugs" just as much as Obama. That's the culture at both of those schools - it's about exchanging ideas and not avoiding them because they've been blacklisted by people who are afraid.

    First of all, the protests would have to be large scale and successful... so there is already a up hill battle. Second, for a financial crisis to be the result, the entire financial industry would have to be stubborn and headstrong and not even try to meet the demands of those large scale protests. It doesn't make rational economic sense... Why would a firm go against thousands or millions of their consumers? It would be shooting themselves in the foot, they'd hurt themselves to not give into some of the demands...

    It reminds me of all the protests against GAP sweatshops. Eventually GAP made public their rules and ethics regarding international workers, and they publicly stopped contract work with some firms. They blamed the child labor on the factory management in India... not themselves. It's just PR work... once the protests get big, and they are actually worried it's going to impact their bottom line, they'll address it and try to appease the protesters enough to get back to work.

    He isn't being practical... but radical, maybe, maybe not... but he is definitely not a threat as his approach isn't realistic IMO

    Do you really believe that? Do you really know that much about Obama and his past? Do you really think his spent all his time with Bill Ayers?

    It's just a charicature. Like all charicature, there is some basis in reality, some semblance of truth. But it's a cartoon. It's not real. It's loaded with interpretation.

    Do you think you can prove that Obama never hung out with "run of the mill liberals?"

They failed and so the crash.

    Some of the problem was do to greed for sure but some was do to the speculation Markets that need to be controlled or eliminated, for such commodities as oil.

    The Federal Government not living within it's means is a big reason we are in trouble and that wild crazy spending since Obama went nuts just made it worse.

    This is my point. He's plan clearly isn't going to work, so I don't see a reason to be concerned or even to think it's something all "left-wingers" advocate since it's largely impractical. In the same light, because it's so impractical and because I'm not sure about the entire context of his presentation, I have a hard time believing he was talking about it as a real, viable solution to the problems he sees with bankers. It seems to me like he's talking more about an ideal of sorts (the ideal way to combat a problem), but not an actual strategy.

    I don't think he or his words are important. The only reason to focus on it is to demonize "the left." It's one more piece of straw in a giant straw-man.

    Perhaps questions that should of been asked prior to The Most Inexperienced, Corrupt, and Non-Transparent President in history being elected by 50 million mind numb minds.........

    If you happen to be the one person that knows about Obama and his past..........

    1) the original, long-form 1961 Hawaiian birth certificate.-not found, not released.
    2) Marriage license between Obama’s father (Barak Sr.) and mother (Stanley Ann Dunham) — not found, not released
    3) Obama’s baptism records — sealed

    Aside from the fact that I don't see it working... I also don't think he wants to destroy the economy or capitalism. I think his goal is to reform the banking industry, but put the middle class people in charge of that reform.
