    Tyrone, you are the one without a clue.

    The poster is correct. Wachovia would have never ended up in the hands of Wells had they not purchased the California thrift. The California thrift single-handedly sank the company. Their other acquisitions were good ones.

    They would have experienced a downturn just like the other SE banks because the region was so hard hit. But they would not have ended up having to sell out to keep from going under.

    You are really one stupid MF.
