Nothing's Changed

The Big Boys rule.

"The biggest hypocrites in the world are the United States Congress because they set out this philosophy that too-big-to-fail is something they don't believe in and they want to stop it and then they write a bunch of laws that kill the small banks and help the big banks get bigger." Richard Bove, Rochdale Securities

And then there's this, "Bank of America is two companies. It's everything Countrywide [Financial] and everything that's not Countrywide. Everything that's Countrywide is rotten to the core. Everything that's not Countrywide is doing quite well."

Watch it here.

My Man

NJ governor speaks out on anti-Semitic attacks.

A Letter from Barry O'B

This came in the email today. Pathetic if you ask me.

William --

When you become president, one thing that happens overnight is that you and everyone you love get a bunch of new nicknames.

I was already pretty used to this. But "FLOTUS," short for First Lady of the United States, is really something else.

I'm writing because our FLOTUS, Michelle, turns 48 on Tuesday, and I know I'm not her only fan out there.

Will you join me in wishing her a happy birthday?

The decision to become part of this campaign was deeply personal for a lot of people, and Michelle and I are no exception. But we both knew, like anyone else who believes in what we're trying to do here, that this was never going to be easy.

This fall, Michelle and I will have been married 20 years. The next 10 months will be harder than any we've experienced together, and I couldn't do it without her. I know she'd love to hear from you today:

Thanks for your support,


P.S. -- This weekend, people are getting together to volunteer in their communities in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Find out how you can join in here.
