  •  I'm afraid that (10+ / 0-)

    our president is unwilling to take an identifiable stance here.  His method is to smooth things over and look for common ground.  The banks don't want common ground, they want it all and they want it un-regulated.  Much unlike how Obama did not figure out that the Republicans would never compromise on his Health Insurance Reform (even though his "vision" become such a muddled miasma that it is nothing near what he promised as a candidate, due entirely to unilateral compromises with Rs that netted him ZERO votes), he seems to not understand that Rs have no interest in reforming the bloated, corrupt and leech-infested banking sector.
    Obama's ideals may be good, or even great, but his method has yet to yield much substance.

    •  We cannot sit back and 'pretend' that the (15+ / 0-)

      President, based on his 'silence' is leading.  He is not leading, he is simply allowing Wall Street/the Bankers and the paid off Congressional Whores to dig our nation in even deeper...

      Why bother to have a President if we cannot depend on him to stand up for what is right?  The longer that President Obama remains in the shadows and is 'silent' on the issue of real strong financial reform, the more 'voters' he is going to lose, not just for himself, but for our entire party.

      That is what is known as a 'political moral hazard' and I personally detest his 'silence' on this issue, the same way he dealt with the Public Option.  

      Where's the courage?  Where's the leadership?

      Where's the protection for Americans from the predators on Wall Street/the Banks?

      ...oh, not to worry, I'm wearing a Flame Retardant Valentino Orange Moo Moo whenever I visit DailyKos.
