Wall Street can't have it both ways -- too big to fail, and also able to make wild bets anywhere around the world. If Wall Street banks demand a free rein overseas, the least we should demand is they be broken up here.
It's an uphill climb for Obama to even mildly criticize Mitt Romney for being a vulture capitalist given his lack of accomplishment in holding anyone on Wall Street accountable for the economic carnage they wreaked.
Whether out of ignorance or not understanding the ramifications of such high risk derivative hedges, CEOs such as JP Morgan Chase's Jamie Dimond apparently have little control over the trades such as caused the $2 billion loss.
Bain Capital and JPMorgan are parts of the same problem -- a particular kind of capitalism that uses other peoples' money to make big bets which, if they go wrong, can wreak havoc on the economy. The president should be leading the charge against both.
Why place our bets on Romney when his election may open the door to a return of the days of excessive risk taking and taxpayer funded bailouts? Why spin the wheel again arguing that this time Wall Street will bet correctly?
