This whole thing is fishy somehow . . .
With all the former GS folks in the Administration, one should denote Obama thus:

Good one! lol
Someday we’ll find out that GS and the WH planned this whole thing together. The SEC comes up with a plausible case against GS (could have been any big financial house, this crap goes on every day) to make the case that we need a big overhaul because GS wants the bailout nation as badly as the RATS do.
The worst that can happen is a fine, which no matter how big it sounds, is always a pittance relative to the means of these brokerage houses.
I loathe conspiracy theories, but given the cast of characters, this is seeming more possible to me by the minute.
Something like that seems possible.
We should get the FEC logs...and “help” them remember at their press conferences!!
