"Too big to fail is too big to continue. The megabanks have too much power in Washington and too much weight within the financial system.” Who said this and when?
The answer is Peggy Noonan, the prominent conservative commentator, writing recently in The Wall Street Journal.
This is a significant opportunity for anyone with clear thinking on the right – someone looking for a Teddy Roosevelt trustbusting or Nixon-goes-to-China moment. Again, Ms. Noonan gets it right: “In this case good policy is good politics. If you are a conservative you’re supposed to be for just treatment of the individual over the demands of concentrated elites.”
Well, "supposed to be." Then again, the Democrats were supposed to be for a lot of stuff, too.
Of course, any populist on either side of the aisle is going to get at least one bankster CEO thrown in jail, and not small fry from a bucket shop or a check cashing place. So there's a litmus test. Listening, Professor Warren?
