  1. From the beginning I've been disgusted with Obama having employed all of these crooked bankers in his administration and after seeing this show, I learn he is more into this despicable practice than ever. It is more of a joke now than ever calling Obama a far-left liberal socialist when he has no such trappings. Who would think Stockman of trickle-down fame would be on the right side of the problem. Thanks Moyers for having him on.
