Obama blasts banks for opposing financial overhaul - Yahoo! News He told "60 Minutes" that the banks were to blame for the financial fall out last year. I thought it was Bush's fault. Oh wait...later in the article, he singles out republicans and lobbyists as the ones that are opposed to stricter oversight. Which confuses me, since there were SO many democrats who benefitted from the risky moves that the banks were making on shakey loans in the first place. I think the POTUS just has his panties in a wad because somebody decided to quit kissing his shiney little Nobel Peace Prized ass.
