Son, we live in a world that has leverage, and that world needs to have men that make loans. Whos gonna do it? You? You, congressman? I have a great responsibility than you cant possibly fathom. You weep for homeowners and curse the bankers; you have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that the taxpayer tarp money, while tragic, probably saved the economy and that my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves jobs. You dont want the truth because deep down in places you dont talk about at parties you want me taking on risk, you need me taking on risk. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to some grandstanding ** who has taken sweetheart loans, and consistently rubberstamped these questioned practices, and yet stands here lambasting these very same practices
I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way. Either way I dont give a damn what you think you are entitled to
This should read deep down in place when you are walking around in panties
