As everyone knows, the financial crisis is just a giant coincidence that has nothing to do with any policymakers or anything: “Federal officials are bringing far fewer prosecutions as a result of fraudulent stock schemes than they did eight years ago, according to new data, raising further questions about whether the Bush administration has been too lax in policing Wall Street.”

I mean, heck, as I was reading yesterday in Bloomberg it’s the lack of a sufficiently pro-business climate that’s hurting the economy. The president is just trying to help create that kind of climate.
