Like a good, greed-defending soldier, Geithner's taking the hit for Barry. Wall Street gave five times more money to Senate Dems than Republicans in the last election cycle. The top four of the five richest Senators in the U.S. are Dems. Now we have come to learn that House Dems, not Republicans, represent the wealthiest districts in the U.S.
If you're a lib who gives his mouth more of a workout than his brain, consider who truly represents and staunchly defends the wealthy in this country.

I agree. Let's see who really is in charge of this mess. Congress enacted plans to give Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac more ability to make lower income loans, which drove up prices, which increased debt, which caused the balloon to burst. Who was in charge of that? Well, let's see....someone comes to mind from the great state of Illinois...Oh yeah, Obama.

Go Huskies.
