If they don't have the guts to save a bank in their own hometown they know has meant so much to so many, is it any wonder they won't take on the crimes on Wall Street?
Last week, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner was complaining that he is being falsely identified as a "Goldman Guy," insisting he never worked for the financial institution that was recently branded a "Giant Squid On The Face Of Humanity."
He doesn't seem to realize that the speculation is not based on the details of his resume but on an assessment of his track record as a toady for the pals he worked with when he ran the Federal Reserve Bank in New York.
And by the way, Tim, why the holdup on the appointment of Elizabeth Warren to run the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in your old institution? Is she too smart and popular for you?
Why the fiddling while our modern Rome burns?
