Don't think for one second that O is bowed in any way (at least not when Muslim kings are not involved). He doesn't care about what the American people think or do.
He got in.. And he means to do what he set out to do. Period.
Wall Street reels over plan to rein in bank risk Financial Post (hat tip jane)

From one high minded rich liberal asshat:
I’m very disappointed. We endorsed him. I voted for him. I supported him publicly and privately.
I hope there are changes. I think he’s already laid in huge problems for the country. The fiscal program was a disaster. You have to get the money as quickly as possible into the economy. They didn’t do that. By end of the first year, only one-third of the money was spent. Why is that?
He should have jammed a stimulus plan into Congress and said, “This is it. No changes. Don’t give me that bullshit. We have a national emergency.” Instead they turned it over to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi who can run circles around him.
It’s very sad. It’s really sad.
