That was quick... 5 minutes of introductions...

It appeared Governor Kasich was at the airport to meet the President, which is a good sign if I'm correct.

Silence is complicity. Obama has the power.

not when he allows stuff like this to happen:

"This is the mantra of the financial-crisis era, one that saw virtually every major bank and financial company on Wall Street embroiled in obscene criminal scandals that impoverished millions and collectively destroyed hundreds of billions, in fact, trillions of dollars of the world’s wealth." Taibbi explains how the American people have been defrauded by Wall Street investors and how the financial crisis is connected to the situations in states such as Wisconsin and Ohio."

Over drinks at a bar on a dreary, snowy night in Washington this past month, a former Senate investigator laughed as he polished off his beer.

 

"Everything's fucked up, and nobody goes to jail," he said. "That's your whole story right there. Hell, you don't even have to write the rest of it. Just write that."

I put down my notebook. "Just that?"

"That's right," he said, signaling to the waitress for the check. "Everything's fucked up, and nobody goes to jail. You can end the piece right there."

Consider it a tale of two speeches and a grim parable

Consider it a tale of two speeches and a grim parable for our American moment.

On March 24, 2010, Treasury Department Deputy Secretary Neil Wolin arrived for his lunchtime speaking slot at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's impressive headquarters, a short walk from the Treasury building and the White House. When his time came, Wolin strode onstage and, before hundreds of its members, tore into the chamber and its policies. As an organization, it was dishonest and "backward," he said. An ongoing three-million-dollar lobbying campaign was not intended to bolster badly needed financial reforms on Wall Street, as claimed, but "designed to defeat them."

A stunned audience mustered only the weakest of applause. At the time, there was no love lost between the White House and the chamber.  Later that fall, with the help of a crucial Supreme Court decision, the group would act on that animosity, spending a staggering $33 million in the 2010 midterms and ushering in the biggest Republican landslide in generations.
