No word yet on a bail-out for Wall Street’s investment in Obama.
Update: It turns out the president is still raking The Street.
Continuing to lead from behind, Obama followed the examples of Dick Durbin and the Occupy Wall Street Teatotalitarians (your totalitarian alternative to the Tea Party) by taking a whack at the banks.
