When President Barack Obama signs the financial overhaul bill into law on Wednesday, many of the most recognizable faces in the banking world won’t be among the hundreds of people in attendance.

J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. Chief Executive James Dimon and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. Chief Executive Lloyd Blankfein weren’t invited to the ceremony and won’t be attending, people familiar with the matter said.

Ya think any of these kingpins of the financial world are feeling dejected ."snubbed" for being uninvited"? Feeling snubbed my a**. These guys who make the Sopranos look like boy scouts are laugihng, figuratively, literally all the way to rhe bank (heir own.) With all the taxpayers' money thrown at them to salvage their sorry behinds, they're not letting this dog-and-pony show get them feeling too down andf out.

The whole "wasn't invited" rhetoric is all for the benefit of the far lefties.

They all think Obama's sold out to the corporations so he and the MSM are trying to go all out to prove them wrong.

Some of these high rollers “declined” an order from Jarrett Axlerod Inc to appear at a banker’s meeting at the WH last spring for a class warfare lecture from Barry.

I would not assume it was Bambi doing the snubbing at the signing of this dismal piece of crap bill.

In fact, I see this as interesting and potentially encouraging that at least some of the liberal billionaires might finally stop bowing and scraping at the beck and call of this incompetent adolescent narcissist.

Who will still be standing after 2012? Barry, or Goldman Sachs?

hmmm.

Not all of these guys (bank CEO’s) are scum. Many in fact are not.

We have to avoid the broad brush the Democrats use. Many of the bigger banks didn’t WANT the TARP money, it was basically forced upon them, with the alternative being The Government making life a living hell for them.

Do you have a problem with capitalism?

People parroting this stuff are but useful idiots for the morally devoid leftist scumbags now in power...
