Funny how all these folks had their hay days during a time when greed ran rampant in the market, under Bill Clinton's watch, when the bubble grew to enormous proportions. But now that Bush is in charge they're getting sent to prison, charged civily by the SEC and fined.

Doesn't seem to be consistent with the claim that Bush is in bed with big business. Sure makes you wonder about old billy boy though.
