LOL'ing at Hillary saying Obama "stood up and took on Wall Street".

These two are completely out of touch with reality.

Bernie Sanders: "No Wall Street execs having been prosecuted"


Sanders is so hard up to blame everything on Wall Street that he forgot about the biggest fraud EVER ($50B ponzi scheme) and how that played out for Mr. Madoff.....prosecuted, put in jail.

Also there was the whole Raj Rajaratnam prosecution for insider trading, much smaller but still $60M is no joke. He wasn't a CEO, but still.

Nice to make sweeping generalizations that most people will never question just because they sound all radical, but come on.

The two people you noted are NOT Wall Street executives. One was a trader, and the other was a guy who ran a ponzi on clients of his.

Sanders is right -- No Wall Street execs have been prosecuted.

Clinton makes everyone look bad when it comes to foreign affairs. She's a war monger though.

Incorrect.

Bernie Madoff - Founder and Chairman of Madoff Securities, Ex Chairman of the NASDAQ

Raj Rajaratnam - Hedge fund manager...not anything like a "trader"

If Founders, Chairmen, and Hedge fund managers aren't "Executives" then I guess we have different definitions of that term.

I think she is hardass strong, but I do not believe she is a war monger.

Ha ha... you knew Hillary would jump on the chance to exploit Bernie naming two dead white men (Roosevelt and Churchill) as his greatest leaders.

Hardly incorrect.

These two buffoons are not the type of Wall Street executives Sanders is referring to. Think Goldman Sachs, Lehman, Citi, et al These two are a couple of low-level schlubs compared to the guys at the top.of the major Wall Street firms.

THOSE are the real Wall Street execs that should have been prosecuted.
