    Both of them did what they had to do under the circumstances.

    I'll tell you what. I'll make you a deal.

    Having lived and worked through the Meltdown with my advisory clients, I've spent the last ten years studying it from every angle I can find. I still can't come up with a plausible alternative to how the Fed reacted to it.

    Further, I have not spoken with one (1) peer in my industry who attacks either President or the Fed for what they did, OR who offers an alternative strategy, given the circumstances at the time. Not one.

    But it looks like you have it all figured out.

    So write a paper on it, describe the situation, the alternatives, the politics, the law, the moral hazard, all of it. Let me know when it's ready, AND I WILL READ IT. I'd love to know what else could have been done, with a FULL description of possible threats, ramifications and outcomes. Please include quotations from people in the field.

    Looking forward to it.

    Correct, I'm not a moderate. Nor have I ever claimed to be.

    Please see the post above. I'll make the same offer to you.

    Prove it or STFU. For the record, numbskull, it wasn`t Lincoln who started a war by firing at Ft. Sumter. I don`t think that Abe was in Charleston S.C. on April 12, 1861.

    The Supreme Court ruling should suffice...........Now go to that disclosure and the amounts from the Federal Reserve and tell me they needed saving...........lol

    It is a matter of SUPREME COURT RECORDS.

    I'm patient.

    Since I know you don't know what you're talking about, I'm not worried.

    Cowboy movie clips and links are attempted by the ignorant.

    Everything you know about Lincoln and his war is wrong. How could we possibly debate, when you don’t know anything?

    Gawd. More links. Okay.

    You win. You know what happened. I don't know what happened.

    You're right. I'm wrong.

    There ya go. You're just too smart and informed for me.
