Inside Edition

Via Politico:

“These are complicated companies,” one [bank] CEO said. Offered another: “We’re competing for talent on an international market.”

But President Barack Obama wasn’t in a mood to hear them out. He stopped the conversation and offered a blunt reminder of the public’s reaction to such explanations. “Be careful how you make those statements, gentlemen. The public isn’t buying that.”

“My administration,” the president added, “is the only thing between you and the pitchforks.”

Pitchforks? Yea, and a rope to string'em up with. But from the sound of this conversation it is clear the bankers still don't get it.
