Just another stockbroker who tells you that his hot tip did not turn out that way. Unfortunately he and your broker don’t have to pay for their mistakes. We have federal reserves employees and the last two former presidents that never had to write a check for their mistakes either.

Unfortunately, our American society has “evolved” in such a way that the mastering of the skills and art of deflecting due responsibility for one’s interest group, is arguably the number of reason they get to that high profile leadership position. Condaleeza Rice comes to mind, as an example or faithful deflector of G.W.Bush’s accountability. Other talents, skills, insight, wisdom are seemingly out the door when this “artful evasion” skill shines.

Perhaps the only way (and I do not mean it sarcastically) is to start putting the story of Washinton admitted to cutting down the tree in grade schoolers’ textbooks, and start teaching some moral standards in school. There is a void in at least moral principals that all races and religions should be able to agree upon. They threw the baby out with the bathwater when the interpretation of the law became hostile to religion in schools due to the concern of discrimination.

He’s a back-bencher, a Monday-morning quarterback. If his Wikipedia article is accurate, Mr. Angelides has never held a real job in the private sector in his life.
