    It's the promise of positive change to come and an end to negative change. Just wait. Thank you, thank you very much.

    I have already heard that the republicans have assured the banks and brokerage houses that the Volker Rule will not be enforced. Positive change alright.

    Funny during the first 2 years of Obama the doors were thrown wide open at the banks and all our savings (401K, savings, value of the dollar, etc.) disappeared along with our jobs but don't worry he still has blind supporters here on this forum and elsewhere who will do his bidding no matter what he has done or plans on doing.

    To make a successful Red Revolution the end justifies the means for all you true believers. Thank you, thank you very much.

    the doors were thrown open so the banks could get the money from Bush's stimulus. Take a toke off your bong Glen. It'll help with the memory.

    Nor crashed in a day, so things change but they generally take time. The newbies take office in January, correct? They have to find a hotel, figure out where where the bathroom is, order office furniture, and stuff like that.

    There is a delayed effect, there is not a 24 hour whirl-wind of change.

    Do you have a link for this?

    Mortgage backed securities were traditionally a good investment before our liberal social engineers decided it was a good idea to fine banks if they did not give loans to people who could not afford houses. Even when it became clear that the house of cards was about to crumble, liberal icon and chief commerade of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Rep. Barney Frank assured us that all was sound.

    Here is one of the biggest reasons why we are "in the ditch"

    Here is how much things have not changed. Dan Issa plans to have 280 investigations so far. I hope I am not on Obama's Christmas card list. Issa has stated that Obama is one of the most corrupt presidents in modern history. Issa has also claimed that the ARRA was corrupt. All this and Obama has let "W" and Cheyney go free for all their crimes.

    I've already stated what I expect of the Republicans for the next two years.

    Gridlock.
