Did the banks learn nothing in 2008? I keep hearing the genius GOP candidates talking about smaller government and non-regulation. Are any of them ready to concede that perhaps Obama knows what he is talking about? I am a Canadian but I still worry that the U.S. might turn the country back over to the Republicans. I sure hope not.
