If you're referring to Obama, pretty clearly most people don't agree with you. He inherited a number of nasty situations from his predecessor, the true mayhem maker.

As regards banking practices, do remember that AIG, Lehman Brothers, and most of the large investment banks faltered badly long before Obama took office.

The ONE bank charging fees for depositors (Bank of New York Mellon Corp) is doing so on accounts which have an average monthly balance of FIFTY MILLION DOLLARS. Doesn't affect me, how about you?

I sometimes think that those who are so profoundly unhappy with government regulations ought to try life without regulation. Air, water, food products, banking practices...... Might not quite be as ideal as they think. In fact, I would bet money on it.

Most people don't agree with me, okay, then you'll see him win next year, with more of the same to follow,
Heck yes I'm effected by all that money pouring into a bank even though they are being charged and earning very little ,if any interest on it. (DOW lost all gains sice beginning of the year, 10th biggest drop ever yesterday) Wouldn't it be better if it was invested in a dynamic growing economy? Put into a non growth account and being charged for it because of regulatory reasons? This economy is in dire straits if that's preferable.
:"ought to try life without regulation.:
Typical straw-man nonsense. NWMT

I don't know if Obama will win re-election or not.

No one has said we need NO regulations, that is the straw-man the left resorts to whenever a conversation about limiting regulations is brought up. Obama and the congressional left have imposed too many regulations and it's hurting businesses. Ask them or look it up if you care enough to.. Otherwise live in your bubble of cognitive distortion.
Did I say Melon was charging interest? I thought I said they weren't paying interest, but were charging a fee. Indeed, who would park huge sums of money in banks.. Some obviously, who are taking their money out of a volitile market,.
Obama's competition isn't very impressive, compared to what, Obama?

Well, I hadn't been able to watch Rachel Maddow, so why don't you give a detailed Factual report on the Frank Dodd Act and how it's helping our country out of this mess.
As for the rest of your post ,parrot talk I've read a million times, before.

Note that my link was to Bloomberg BusinessWeek--not to Rachel Maddow.

As for Obama fixing things, he hasn't been as successful as Bush was in breaking them. It is always easier to destroy than to build. Obama may be a disappointment but he's not the unmitigated disaster Bush was.


Yes, Bush with all those years of a growing economy and low unemployment. Gee, Obama has it so tough. Oh, but he did have to contend with the high jinks of

"Resist, we much. We must, and we much. About that, be committed."
