For the skilled jobs that are available, that's certainly true, unfortunately.

Moody's cuts credit ratings of 15 major banks - Boston.com

Quote:
NEW YORK—Moody's Investors Service lowered the credit ratings of 15 major banks Thursday, including Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs, saying their long-term prospects for profitability and growth are shrinking.

The ratings agency said it was especially concerned about banks with significant financial markets businesses because those markets have become so volatile. Some of the largest European banks were also downgraded, including Barclays, Deutsche Bank and HSBC.
And so begins Recovery Summer 3.0

Also see Obama's re-election chances growing ever dimmer (and I was never optimistic to begin with). Try not to gloat. The price of his loss of the election is too high (I know, I know the state of the economy is all his fault. . .).

I would be interested in hearing you elaborate on how the downgrading of these banks is the fault of the government and the Obama administration. Or perhaps, you would be arguing that the downgrading is good--let the market work it out, let the banks fail if need be, as we should have done in the first place instead of costly govt. bailouts.

the only thing worth noting is that Moody's has moved from being 5 years behind to now being 4 years behind
I bow my head to the geniuses working there
