I think a financial regulator is an oxymoron. Or maybe just a moron, not sure.

Obama has to remind them just who he and they are working for before they get all regulatory or something. Hint: It's not The People.

That's more likely to put them to sleep.

Assuming that they are talking about how to handle the coming economic shiatstorm.  The 10Y is getting a little jumpy.

Well somebody call Reggie Love because Obama will probably need to play several rounds of spades while the adults work.

He looks tired.

Obama's going to do something CRAZY soon... insomnia only leads to bad things... I am Jack's complete lack of surprise.

I'd be amazed if the President  wasn't an insomniac.

I wonder how many Presidents really slept well while in office? I'm sort of hoping Reagan was the last one

so the Financial Regulators can let Obama know that Wall Stroke decided that it was not going to be regulated.  so there won't be any misunderstandings.

you know, Freedom and all.  Democracy.  Patriotism.  all those important words.

Ronnie slept well because his Handlers were the ones actually running the Country.  Ronnie was just a figurehead. an actor by training.   Wall street had Ronnie shaking hands and making speeches.

It's the hardest 4-8 years of someone's life. I'm betting Clinton had a few nights of peaceful sleep.

Tell the obstructionist Republicans to stop and it will get better.

We can't trust them to keep to their word.

Show trials and then a gulag. It's the only way.

My understanding is that is true for any politician higher than dog catcher.  Your best bet is to go with someone who can assemble/maintain a good team, but expect that you are getting a package deal (and you hear almost nothing about anyone but the "face" member of the team when voting).  Makes a republic (as opposed to a democracy) look even sillier than normal history would indicate.

He just insists creating jobs and reducing the deficit. That bastard.

Pretty much. Let's see if we can convince the brain-dead protestors that some of their reps are secretly black and see if they riot.

Who is the moron? The guy who regulates the industry, ignores obvious illegal and immoral actions, and gets a seven figure salaried job after he does his time as a regulator or the people who allow shiat like this to happen. We need a new law that once you take a job as a regulator you and any member of your immediate family can not accept gifts, jobs, or any thing with monetary value over $5 in a single year for so long as you live.

Excelling jorb subby.   Meeting with financial regulators should cure his insomnia.
