    Chicago politics strikes.

    Obama buys bank. Bank bids Obama.

    I laugh every time I see this kind of shit.

    This is day-to-day here in Illinois. We're numb to it. How this Boy Wonder continues to amaze the masses doesn't surprise me.

    Land mass has nothing to do with control. Control rests within voting blocs. Either centralized, or spread around the country in "pods".

    Americans have fallen to an age-old scam to which we in Illinois have been savvy to for decades. Chicagonois has become USAnois. You stupid mother scratchers. Welcome to the party. LOL.

    When did Obama "buy" Bank of America?

    What does this have to do with "Chicago"?

    Aren't you guys all about private businesses being able to make decisions like this?

    Excuse me- "we" bought BOA for $20B.

    As to the Chicago inference... well, stupid is as stupid does.

    Bank of America - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Bank of America received $20 billion in the federal bailout from the U.S. government through the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) on January 16, 2009, along with a guarantee of $118 billion in potential losses at the company.[54] This was in addition to the $25 billion given to them in the Fall of 2008 through TARP. The additional payment was part of a deal with the U.S. government to preserve Bank of America's merger with the troubled investment firm Merrill Lynch.[55] Since then, members of the U.S. Congress have expressed considerable concern about how this money has been spent, especially since some of the recipients have been accused of misusing the bailout money.[56] Then CEO Ken Lewis was quoted as claiming "We are still lending, and we are lending far more because of the TARP program." Members of the U.S. House of Representatives, however, were skeptical and quoted many anecdotes about loan applicants (particularly small business owners) being denied loans and credit card holders facing stiffer terms on the debt in their card accounts.

    So, because BofA received bailout money, you should be able to dictate to them who they can do business with? Seriously, do you need a hanky?
