    Considering the amount of donations from the bankers, I doubt he was ever against them.

    Barry's being consistent. Rahm Emanuel also had a banking career.

    Another corrupt Chicago crony. Par for the course for this White House. This one is especially corrupt though. This guy represents the worst of the worst when it comes to corrupt & evil Bankers. Very bad choice by this President.
