  •  DOJ never had any interest in such prosecutions (7+ / 0-)

    The contrast to the prosecutions of the S&L crooks by the Reagan/Bush I DOJ's is frightening.  The fact that this scandal was much more broader and much more damaging than the S&L scandal was makes the contrast more disturbing.  In hindsight, the Change meme of '08 was deliberately vague, but I assumed it at least mean financial fraud prosecutions at a level comparable to that of St. Ronnie and GHWB.

    What's most disturbing of all is that the absence of prosecutions this time makes a next time all but inevitable.

    Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?
