    is the interplay between the Obama Administration & Wall Street.

    As the other poster so excellently put it:

    his ideology is to appease power when he is in power by selling out to power

    one power block (Wall Street) appeases Obama by being his major campaign contributor and in turn, another huge power block (The Administration) sells out to Wall Street by opting to not prosecute (or even regulate meaningfully!).

    And then at the end of the day, and this is the worse part of it all, there's not even any time left to think about the little guy, much less actually help him/her out.
