Talks between Wall Street executives and the administration began almost immediately after the President’s re-election and the discussions have been largely cordial, despite talk that banks are bracing for a new round of tougher regulations. At least for now, there are no signs of acrimony and discussions with executives have been cordial, a banker familiar with the talks says.

Sure Barack! You and the Dems created this fiscal cliffs as a ploy to raise taxes. But you won’t cut spending or entitlements. Unless it is the military.

I was just talking about this with a buddy of mine. I says to him, you know, if ever there was a president who was serious about deficit reduction, its Barack Obama.

More regs for Wall Street = squeezed credit for us.

Fewer mortgages, fewer business loans, less credit for education, etc. etc. etc.

The Dow Jones has been tanking since Tuesday but starts to recover this morning, then `Dreams From My Father’ speaks and we’re back to the death spiral.
Thanks for that `blue’ America!

Obama ... views it as a “legacy” issue...

Ah, the dreaded "L" word.

< dog whistle >

That means you have to go along with whatever he wants or you're a racist hater.

Does that mean Obama is NOT in favor of raising the debt limit?

Any deficit reduction gained by gutting defense and taxing the “rich” is doomed to failure. Spiraling o-care costs and small biz taxes will gut the economy and give us more trillion dollar deficits.

But Barry wants to be a to say: I deserve credit for trying. Affirmative action move from the Affirmative Action Prezzy.

As soon as he said I’m all for compromise as long as you do it my way, the DOW tanked again.
