  1. The posted story reveals that it was Ben Bernanke of the Fed, and Hank Paulson, Secretary of the Treasury for George Walker Bush, pressured the Bank of America.

    How do Barny Frank and Chris Dodd get the blame for that? In what way, Tom, does this imply that Frank and Dodd were "calling the shots?"

    Why did you not phrase it, "When George Bush's Secretary of the Treasury was calling the shots and demanding that nominally private companies lie to the public"?
