Quote of the Day

"What haunts the Obama administration is what still haunts the country: the stunning lack of accountability for the greed and misdeeds that brought America to its gravest financial crisis since the Great Depression. There has been no legal, moral, or financial reckoning for the most powerful wrongdoers. Nor have there been meaningful reforms that might prevent a repeat catastrophe. Time may heal most wounds, but not these. Chronic unemployment remains a constant, painful reminder of the havoc inflicted on the bust’s innocent victims." - the incomparable Frank Rich, writing in New York Magazine about our new gilded age elites, who escaped accountability from the financial collapse, and the President's failure to address it. It's worth reading, as always.
