It's good they state the obvious; that bonuses are paid for meeting certain targets or financial objectives which were not met.

It would be nice to know if they would have awarded bonuses anyway had it not been for the scandal over Merrill Lynch's pompous, greedy and boneheaded former CEO and the 18 billion in bonuses.

Maybe you should run everything, since you seem to know everything.

Well the news did not report that this bank will be sponsoring a large post super bowl game party.

At the publics expense, although the executives for this bank are claiming they will pay for it.

So the big execs do not get a bonus, too bad. But
the bank is still spending the big bucks.

That sounds good. No bonuses for "top execs". They don't talk about the huge layer of directors and vice-presidents in line for their bonus. Just a lot of smoke and mirrors.

The HUGE super bowl party. Right after getting $45 BILLION in BAILOUT MONEY. First AIG's resort trip at taxpayer's expense, then Citi's $50 MILLION dollar jet they were getting after getting bailout money and Bank of America has a super bowl party. No end in sight.

They can't help that they have the 'big bucks' to spend since they were smart enough NOT to make the sub-prime loans!

BB&T is not small or local. Get online and check out its financials. ROFLMAO. You might be surprised.
