During the Vietnam conflict, a common complaint of soldiers was that you could never tell who the enemy really was.
In this current economic recession, too, I am beginning to wonder who the enemy of our recovery really is.
The president, Congress, the Federal Reserve, and the regulators are all telling us why so many others are to blame. The big banks have done it to us! shouts one group. Wall Street did it, claims another. Homebuyers who bought homes they could not afford are the real culprit! claims another.
Perhaps those who have been charged with the responsibility for managing the fiscal and monetary policy of our nation should look inward for their responsibility in this continuing crisis.
It is essential that until the economy is more robust, the federal government, Congress, the president, and the regulators stop all efforts at increasing regulatory compliance burdens. Capital standards should be maintained at prudent levels until after the recession is over. At that time, it would be appropriate to consider recapitalizing banks with higher regulatory standards.
Once again, the very people tasked with assisting in controlling the economy are meddling, in a political way, in activities of which they have no understanding.

Billionaire business mogul Penny Pritzker is a member of one of Americas richest families and was the Finance Chair for the presidential campaign of Barack Obama. It was Pritzker that led the prolific, and illegal, fundraising that helped power Barack Obamas presidential campaign. She was the chair of Chicago-based Superior Banks board for five years.
Pritzker was into subprime lending before it became all the rage starting in around 2000. Prtizker's chairmanship was to concentrate on sub prime lending, principally on home mortgages, but for a while in subprime auto lending, too, after the Pritzkers' bank acquired its wholesale mortgage organization division, Alliance Funding, in December 1992.
Superior Bank went belly up in 2001 with over $1 billion in insured and uninsured deposits; 1,406 depositors lost much of their life savings. This collapse came amid harsh criticism of how Superiors owners promoted sub-prime home mortgages.
They are going to try to fake a recovery in time for the election. Afterwards, we will all circle down into the depths of the biggest, deepest economic toilet ever seen in this country. It will make the 30s seem like a time or Roaring Prosperity.
The enemy is the group who engineered Obozo's rise to power. They are the enemy of all free men. The serve the father-of-lies.

As long as George Zimmerman does not set off some “unprecedented” conflagration.
What was it that Ayers said -— I wake up every morning wondering how to end capitalism?
I think Obama and his Gang of Thugs are worried that the Zimmerman thing has gotten out of their control and they are trying to let it slide away unnoticed so they can move on to other things.
I think the Thugocracy realizes how bad the orchestrated anti-Zimmerman “protests” are backfiring and they’re trying to walk away from them.
The enemy is the group who engineered Obozo’s rise to power.

You left out the “foreign” element that engineered his rise to power.
You identified well the internal traitors, but they rewarded foreign enemies and punished out allies.
This MUST END.
Oh, what I would give for a 2-3 year gig, after they are overthrown, to hunt down, help charge, prosecute, convict, sentence and punish those who did this.
With the amount of anger in the country your wish to charge, prosecute, convict, sentence may come true.
Anyone who thinks this is being engineered from the seats of power in Washington DC is off base. This is a globalist operation designed to usher in global tyranny by the elites. The tools in DC are useful idiots who think they will get a seat at the table when the dust settles.
These are truly frightening times.
Amazing that the U.S. based Globalists cannot see that they loose too.
It is now time to fish or cut bait. The future of the nation depends on the outcome of the November elections.
With either Romney or Obozo, the nation looses.
We have our work cut out for us. It is up to “We the People” now.
