    SPITZER bankrupts U.S.A

    he just woke fools up.

    ask yourself a serious question: how many "big" US companies have cooked their books?

    This will turn out to be bigger than enron and wcom combined...

    • There's a valid side to the complaints about Spitzer - if you add up the market cap that's vaporized in dozens of companies in multiple industries due to Spitzer-induced fear and loathing, it surely adds up to a loss much greater than 9/11. The 401Ks, pension funds, and mutual funds holding AIG are out over $10,000,000,000 today alone. AIG had lost $39,000,000,000 for Americans since the latest Spitzerizing began. That's just one company in one industry.

      One can certainly stand on principle here, and I'm sure Spitzer does, because he certainly can't stand on any claim of "helping" the common man.
