They said it’s too big to fail, and put good money in to making that the reality. Playing with accounting rules is small time compared to the political fallout from a collapse. With tax money and flexible accounting all things are possible.

Is it just me or does an inability to use lower case suggest an other than supple mind?

Be sure to check in with earth in December, Jay, and let the locals know how you’re doing.

There is certainly a lot of money betting the stock will slide … and this is reflected in a host of negative comments on many message boards, forums, and even here. Citi is in just as bad shape as Goldman, BofA, and so on. But the govt. has already signaled they are too big to fail. You short sellers better cover your bets. This stock is going up.

The only reason may be because we are all shareholders now but dont we want the stock price to go up so the Government can scale out of the stock and reap a profit for us?!?! Their is no reason why Citi should be down so much and others (like BAC) are way up. The economy is recovering…giving less exposures to ALL OF THEIR RISKS…smart investors know that so they are buying again which will push the price north.

Dont hate, you SHORTER!!!

It’s got nothing to do with the underlying health of the U.S. economy–the United States is still broke, and Citi and other banks still have toxic assets on their books. When will the people in this country understand that CRIMINALS are running the show here in the United States? What will it take? I’ll tell you one thing, the health-care protests are a GREAT sign, because they had nothing to do with health care, and everything to do with the U.S. populace revving up to revolt. Democrats and Republicans are two sides of the same coin, which means that the American people DO NOT HAVE A CHOICE. When they finally understand that en masse, they will respond with force. Time will tell….

Sorry about that. Here’s the whole thing:

You’ve got to chuckle at the use (or misuse) of the English language that comes out of the Washington-Wall Street cabal. From Mr Geithner, we got “legacy loans” to ponder. Very clever. You can’t get much more benign than that. Now from Citi we get “special asset pool,” SAP for short, which is exactly what these assets will do the strength of Citi (what strength is left anyway). What puzzles me is why these folks don’t realize the games they play with words make them look rather foolish. Maybe they need to read or reread Orwell’s “1984.”
