By the way, I just saw Obama make one of those little political mistakes he normally never makes:
President Barack Obama issued a withering critique Thursday of Wall Street corporate behavior, calling it “the height of irresponsibility” for Wall Street employees to be paid more than $18 billion in bonuses last year while their financial sector was crumbling.
“It is shameful,” Obama said from the Oval Office. “And part of what we’re going to need is for the folks on Wall Street who are asking for help to show some restraint, and show some discipline, and show some sense of responsibility.”
And while I agree completely with the comments, they were made while he was sitting next to Tim Geithner, a Wall Street wizard who, as you may know, had some tax issues and irresponsibility of his own.
Obama quickly moved on to a full-throated endorsement of the Steelers, and all was forgiven in the Cole household.
